Oh Bethenny Frankel, if only… if only you hadn't staged that big ol' reality TV wedding and spinoff then maybe your very public divorce to Jason Hoppy wouldn't be so brutal!
With the couple battling in court over custody of their daughter Bryn and custody of their recently renovated apartment, Bethenny describes the divorce process as a daily struggle. "It's been hard," she admits to Life & Style. “It’s been difficult to stay sane.”
One may argue that Bethenny has never been sane – part of her charm? – but the divorce process is putting her closer to the brink than ever! To escape she's been vacationing (and possibly canoodling) with a billionaire and putting all her focus on her new talk show, Bethenny.
Bravo's surprising hitBelow Deck is taking us inside the world of luxury yacht charters. Despite making me insanely jealous of the guests, I feel nothing but pity for the crew trapped together and forced to cater to every whim of the charter guests.
And it's enough to make anyone crazy. Clearly. The biggest drama on board so far concerns Kat Held, her love of al-al-al-al-cohol, and her hate of boss Adrienne Gang!
“She is absolutely the villain of this show” Kat declares of Adrienne.
And Kat is not stopping there! “I found Adrienne to be two-faced,” she explains to In Touch Weekly. “She says she comes across as professional. She was very unprofessional."
Meanwhile, the sharks ate the Hollywood Exes alive, as only 667,000 viewers bothered to tune in. Hollywood Exes has two problems in my opinion. One – too much competition on Sunday. The show should move back to Wednesday. Two – viewers are over the Andrea Kelly and Jessica Canseco drama.
Finally, Princesses: Long Island finished their first (hopefully last) season on a higher note, with 899,000 viewers. Even the sharks swam away from this hot mess in search of something less irritating. Princesses Long Island's season average was 889,300.
Last night's Dance Momssaw Abby Lee Miller's Broadway Baby return from the dead. It was frightening. Even more frightening? Kelly creepily lurking in the auditorium during this week's competition. That's right…the season (which has been going on for years now, right?) doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon!
Abby is still basking in her victory over Kathy and her Candy Apples. She calls the group routine amazing and praises Payton's desire to be part of the team. Abby spouts on and on about how even the Supremes and the Beatles had to replace members at some point…which brings her to the bottom of the pyramid. It's no shock that Brooke and Paige at the bottom. They are followed by Payton for her smart mouth during the competition. Leslie snaps that Abby needs to call Payton by her name, and not get her confused with Kendall or Brooke. Abby quips that she's happy to call Payton "replaceable." Asia and MacKenzie round out the bottom level, and Abby is proud of their performance in the group number. Kristie 2.0 is livid that MacKenzie is one spot higher than Asia.
Chloe is the bottom of the second tier, and Abby basically tells her that them's the breaks…she did a good job, but whatevs. Maddie is next on the pyramid because Abby is concerned that if she keeps winning all the time, she'll lose her hunger. Abby is also getting tired of seeing the same faraway and melancholy facial expressions from Maddie each week. Kendall is in the second spot because of her mom's gumption when standing up to Kathy and her crazy apple moms. Can it be? Dare I hope? YES! Nia is finally at the top of the pyramid! Abby reveals that Nia gained the coveted spot because she was the only dancer who asked Abby how she could improve after the competition. She is over the mood.
Tamar Braxton is one busy lady! Not only is the Braxton Family Values star gearing up for her new talk show, she's also fallen in love with her latest role…mom to new baby boy Logan. She recently showed off her new bundle of joy after a somewhat secret pregnancy.
Of course, now that the cat is out of the bag, Tamar is all about sharing her excitement. Speaking to Us, Tamar dishes on the birth of her son with husband Vince Herbert. Of the delivery room antics, she reveals, "Vincent had a Hugh Hefner robe on and was doling out orders to everyone, and my sister Toni was giving unsolicited advice on how to push."
