Good lord – is there no end to Bethenny Frankel‘s empire? Guess not! The mogul – and I mean mogul – should probably get her own version of The Apprentice already, which isn’t a bad idea actually. Adding to her list of products, the Bethenny Ever After star just released her first novel, Skinnydipping – which is more of a memoir with the names changed to protect the innocent.
To promote her newest book endeavor, Bethenny has been making the media rounds talking marriage, reality TV, and writing!
“I’ve been on reality television for 8 years,” Bethenny said on TODAY of taking a break to write ‘fiction’. “I’ve been on a lot of my reality — my first three books were prescriptive in how to lose weight and how to get the most out of life. ‘Skinnydipping’ is just fun, refreshing…. It’s just a palate cleanser.”
Bethenny credits her fans for keeping her grounded and says that’s what led her to pursue the talk show route. “I have incredible fans,” she explained. “I have a great relationship with them, whether it’s on Twitter, emails or letters, I know exactly who they are. We are in a relationship. It’s why I wanted to do a talk show. It’s for them, so we can have a conversation, rather than just watch me living my life on television.”
Last night’s Survivor was clearly ladies’ night, as Tarzan is the only man left.
We learn that Troyzan whispered “do it” to Kat as he was leaving. Kat is befuddled…does he think she’s going to go against her alliance? Well, someone’s going to have to do it! Alicia thinks that Christina’s ramblings during tribal council only show how wishy washy and weak she is. Alicia thinks Christina needs to stick around a while, but she is starting to feel threatened by the amount of power Sabrina seems to have garnered. Alicia sees herself as a puppet master, poisoning the other women against Sabrina.
Uh-oh – don’t count your chickens before they hatch! Or in this case don’t stop counting your wrinkles before your face lift heals! It seems that poor Brandi Glanville can never get a break where Housewives is concerned and may be suffering the same fate as the now retired Camille Grammer. Brandi has, allegedly, been let go for refusing to her feature her children on the show. And it’s all ex-husband Eddie Cibrian‘s fault!
According to RadarOnline, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s contract was yanked by Bravo when it was determined that filming her children was a no-go. “Bravo wanted her to have her kids on the show in order to expand story lines,” a source reports. “But LeAnn [Rimes] and Eddie wouldn’t allow it.” Wait – LeAnn, former mistress, now wife has a say in the matter? Uhhh… sounds fishy to me!

Yesterday afternoon Renee Graziano‘s seventeen-year-old son AJ Pagan was arrested in Staten Island for being involved in a “physical altercation”!
Before everyone freaks out, RadarOnline reports that witnesses say the teen wasn’t the instigator and was actually trying to break up the fight when police intervened. “AJ was trying to break up a fight and got caught up in it,” a witness explains. “The next thing you know, the cops arrive and haul him off. It totally wasn’t his fault though, he was actually trying to do a good deed.”
Regardless, Renee was understandably upset and furious! “Just whn u think the sun is gonna shine it pours!!!! #God Give Me A Break lol,” the Mob Wives star tweeted following the event.
Hopefully AJ won’t get into too much trouble and this was all a misunderstanding!

Happy birthday Portia! What does one get for the four-year-old who has everything? Perhaps a little drama, RHOBH style!
Radaronline.com is reporting that while Kyle Richards’ daughter was getting into her birthday cake, the always messy Taylor Armstrong was getting into the vino. Big time. A guest of the shindig tells the site, “It’s extremely worrying that Taylor would get blitzed at a birthday party for a four-year-old little girl. She doesn’t weigh a lot and doesn’t seem to have a high threshold for alcohol, it didn’t take long for her to be wasted. Taylor was drinking white wine and it was truly sad to see — she was slurring her words and she got very emotional the more she had to drink. Taylor didn’t drive, thank God, she had a driver for the evening, but she clearly is in a great deal of distress right now and she desperately needs help.”
The group of people who inexplicably watch Khloe Kardashian‘s spinoff, Khloe and Lamar, were dealt a blow this week when rumors surfaced that the pair had told E! they would no longer film their show. Lamar Odom, who has had troubles with his basketball career this year, allegedly wanted to focus on his career rather than continue to participate in the reality television empire his mother-in-law is head of.
Well, a “source” close to the situation tells Radar Online that this isn’t true. Lamar has always wanted to do a show and Khloe was just the easy way in:
After a week’s hiatus from Dance Moms: Miami, the crazy is ba-ack, and this week they are heading north!
Victor and Angel are embarrassed over their last showing–fifth place is a joke at Stars studio. Kimmy makes the top of the list for missing first place in her solo competition by one point. Sammy is at number two for her great solo. Jessi finally works her up from the bottom, and Victor praises her from improving her behavior. Lucas gets a tad misty to see he is fourth on the list, which means Hannah is on the bottom. While she’s improving, it’s not at the same rate as her teammates.
