Reality Tea

Two months after an ex-manager sued her for $100 million claiming breach of oral contract, Bethenny Frankel is speaking out about the “frivolous” lawsuit.

During a recent visit to Canada to promote her Skinnygirl drink line, the Bethenny Ever After star gave an interview to the Globe and Mail during which she displayed her trademark brutal honesty. “That doesn’t bother me,” she retorts when asked about the lawsuit. “That’s frivolous and I would spend $20-million to punish him for wasting my time, the legal system’s time and that bag of bullshit. I will send back all the purses and all the diamonds and everything to sue that guy’s ass and put him where he belongs.”

And when it comes to her Bravo reality show, Bethenny was asked if there’s a part of her people do not get to see on the show. “I get very moody and grouchy,” she admits. “Sometimes, I’m from a place of no.” You don’t say Bethenny?

When asked what her estranged mother Bernadette Parisella Birk would think of her mega success (she sold her drink line for a reported $120 million), Bethenny replies, “I don’t know what she makes of my success.” She continues, “I’m sure it’s quite shocking and overwhelming to her,” adding she hasn’t talked to her “in years.”

As in past interviews, Bethenny once again reiterated her plans to leave the world of reality television sooner than later. “We won’t be doing this for much longer at all,” she declares. “I don’t want to be on reality TV that much.”

And what is Bethenny’s advice to her fans who would like to be in her shoes? “I have always believed in myself,” she states about her work ethic. “You treat every job as if it’s the most important job, and you will end up where I have ended up.”

Meanwhile ABC announced that Bethenny will return to The View talk show on Tuesday, July 12 as a guest co-host.

The isn’t Bethenny’s first time on the show as she also co-hosted last summer during which she got into a minor disagreement with Joy Behar over breast feeding. After Bethenny complained that that breastfeeding can be “the hardest thing in the whole world,” Joy stated, “I didn’t find it hard at all” and that Bethenny “shouldn’t tell women” it’s difficult.

Well that didn’t last long. A week after quitting the Jersey Shore, it appears Vinny Guadagnino realized he had nothing else going for him has had a change of heart!

Vinny was photographed above over the weekend moving back into the Shore house with the help of his roommates. So what happened? Well according to TMZ, it might have been his costars who convinced him to return to the show.

Sources tell TMZ Vinny met up with his castmates for dinner and a club Saturday night in an effort to heal the wounds between them. Evidently it worked. And despite the reports that the others were happy following Vinny’s departure (he was reportedly a pain to live with), his roommates appeared more than happy to welcome him back.

Vinny left the house/show after a fight with one of his roommates in addition to his complaints of “being homesick” and feeling “burned out.” Vinny’s castmate The Situation also stormed off the show last week after getting into it with producers but quickly returned.

MTV continues to film season 5 of the show in New Jersey while the 4th season is set to premiere August 4.

Emily Maynard’s sit down interview about her break up with Brad Womack will finally air tonight on ABC during the new Bachelorette episode.

In a preview clip released by the network, the former Bachelor winner opens up and discusses her struggle to trust again two months after her split from Brad.

“Right now I just want to focus on being a mom, and not have to worry about you know, somebody is in the bushes taking pictures or if something I tell a girlfriend is going to end up in the magazine the next day, not knowing who to trust,” Emily tells host Chris Harrison in the preview below.

Emily adds, “It’s been really hard on me. You don’t know who to turn to so you end up staying by yourself and that makes you even more sad.”

While Emily reveals her focus now is on her 6-year-old daughter Ricki, other sources state she has a desire to be the next Bachelorette because she wants to be famous. In fact UsWeekly reported last week that Emily is very close to inking a deal with ABC.

Brad declined to sit for the interview with Emily but did tell PEOPLE magazine he takes full responsibility for the demise of their relationship. The new Bachelorette episode airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Melissa Gorga and Caroline Manzo recently gave an interview to AOL where Melissa expressed her hope of a better family relationship, and Caroline did was she loves to do: give family advice.

Melissa admits, “There is a huge desire on my part to make amends. I want nothing more than my husband to be with his family.” She says she doesn’t want to be the one who appears to stand between her husband and her husband’s sister Teresa. Melissa believes that she hasn’t had the opportunity to prove herself like the ladies who have been on since the show’s beginning. She says, “It’s hard especially for me being the new girl trying to come in and give my side of the story when you have other women who have been on for two seasons, that you know, people have learned to love and people have learned to get to know.”

Caroline thinks it’s “wonderful” that the women share their lives with millions of viewers. She says, “I think it’s a learning experience to teach everyone that they’re not alone in what they are going through.” She elaborates that “in struggles with families and relationships” the most important thing to do is maintain “an open line of communication.” Caroline continues, “Look within yourself to find out what you did wrong.” She’s a regular Dr. Drew!

Melissa concludes with some things we viewers can expect to see as the season continues. She reveals, “On a lot of the upcoming episodes you’re going to see a lot of good times and house husbands. You are going to see us kind of go full circle and makes amends, and I think that is what America is looking for.” My bad, I thought America was looking for drama.

Not to be overshadowed by her sister-in-law’s exposure, Teresa Guidice was featured in US Weekly’s “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me” and I must say I learned a lot about dear ol’ Teresa. She was once a buyer for Macy’s, although I doubt that is something Macy’s likes to advertise. She had a crush on Jean-Claude Van Damme (remembering that picture of Juicy Joe doing the splits, there is no surprise about this one), and she had a curfew until she married Joe at age 27. Teresa wears high heels everywhere she goes, even if it’s too the beach (I think we’ll get to see this later in the season), and she lurves some club music. Again, not especially shocking. Teresa still has her Catholic school uniform that she models weekly for Joe, and she can play the saxophone. My personal favorite? Teresa’s favorite television show is “Dancing with the Stars.” Are you listening, ABC?

On tonight’s episode, “Holidazed and Confused”, Jacqueline hosts a Christmas party, although there isn’t much cheer at the Manzo residence. Lauren is feeling a little bit of separation anxiety with her brothers’ departure from the family home. Joe builds his wife a recording studio…the gift that keeps on giving. Despite their money woes, Juicy and Teresa make plans to spice up their love life…I’m guessing it will be more than just standing under some mistletoe. {shudder} A preview clip is below.

Watch What Happens LiveAndy Cohen will not be hosting tonight. Taking his place will be guest host Jay Mohr. The guests are Kathy and Rich Wakile.

DO YOU BELIEVE MELISSA AND TERESA WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE AMENDS? THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?

Drita D'avanzo and Aleeya D'avanzo

In a shocking new interview, Mob Wives star Drita D’avanzo reveals she is leaving her currently incarcerated husband Lee D’avanzo.

If you recall, Drita discovered Lee had cheated on her, you know, during one of his brief stints out of prison, on last week’s finale episode. Even worse, Drita also found out Lee had been bringing their daughter Aleeya around his mistress. And today, Drita is making it clear she is done with Lee, even stating they are no longer speaking.

“Right now it looks like I’m going to 100% [get divorced],” Drita tells the HollywoodLife. “I did speak to him and we do not speak anymore since I confronted him about it. We don’t talk.”

Drita also reveals Lee lied about the affair when she confronted him. “He said exactly what I thought he was going to say,” says Drita. “He said it wasn’t true, but I know it is. It’s just something that I don’t see him confessing to. I don’t really need his confession, I just need him to know that I’m not going to be there for him anymore.”

Drita adds that her decision to leave Lee wasn’t an easy one. “It’s not easy, but I’m too prideful and I could never lay with a man that I know was with someone else,” continues Drita. “I can’t do it. I’m still heartbroken.”

So is Drita planning to start dating again soon? “I don’t think I’m ever trusting anybody ever again,” she states. “I’d rather be by myself than with somebody I can’t trust. I’m used to being alone.” As for her message to Lee, she states this is the worst mistake he ever made. “‘Just to lose your family, it’s not worth it,’” she adds.

We will get to see all of this divorce drama play out as the second season of Mob Wives is scheduled to begin filming soon.

Moving on to tonight’s reunion episode which will have the ladies revisiting all their issues from the season. In the clip below, Drita and Karen Gravano are in the same room together since their rooftop brawl and there’s still some tension lingering between them. The reunion airs on VH1 at 8/7c and a preview is below -

After not releasing her own sex tape and not capitalizing on it, Kim Kardashian is now whining complaining about the hardships of being famous. Yes you read that right.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality star who, you know, documents everything she does on national television, covers the latest issue of Cosmopolitan magazine in which she opens up about the downside of being a celebrity.

“Sometimes I feel like a zoo animal,” said Kim, 30. “I’ll be at a restaurant, and someone will put their phone in front of my face and take a picture without saying hi.” Poor little rich Kimmie!

But fret not as feeling like a zoo animal isn’t going to stop Kimmie from continuing to put her business on television! In fact the HollywoodLife blog is reporting that following her 2-hour wedding special with NBA fiance Kris Humphries on E!, Kimmie is working on a spin-off reality show with him.

“Kim and Kris have been filming different parts of their lives, including wedding prep, but their show hinges on Kris’s contract negotiations,” an insider close to the production reveals. “Currently he’s a free agent, but it all depends on what teams he ends up with and their rules for their players and outside commitments.”

Another source adds, “If he is given time and the okay, he and Kim will do their own show. But if his other obligations force him to not film as much, then they will just put all the stuff they’ve shot toward Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” So there you have it. Kimmie is talking out her butt about the pitfalls of being famous while planning to become even more famous with a new reality show.

As for her relationship with Kris, Kim tells Cosmo she snagged him by playing hard to get. “I thought he was cute, and he gravitated toward me because I was so anti-relationship at that point,” she tells Cosmopolitan. “He wasn’t used to that.”

So how did Kim realize Kris was the one? “Often in relationships, you try to mold yourself into someone you think the guy wants. But with Kris, I was totally myself from the get-go. And he was everything I’d ever wanted in a man,” she said. Kim and Kris will reportedly tie the knot next month.

And finally, Kimmie also died her hair a lighter color recently, you know, after adding back in her hair extensions. Kim tweeted of the hair change, “I dyed my hair lighter for summer… I’m loving it! I feel younger!” Photos of her new hair color below.

Dear Bravo, allow me to introduce myself. I watch virtually every reality show you have to offer, whether it’s Top Chef or Flipping Out. I don’t require much, but I would appreciate if you didn’t insult my intelligence. On last night’s “episode” of Real Housewives of New York, I saw Luann bond with Kelly and teach her daughter to drive. I witnessed Ramona compete with Avery over who was busier. Jill also got to visit her daughter in college (coincidence?). Sonja hosted another party she could attend scantily clad, and Cindy? Well, Cindy was present to make one gross comment. This was not an episode…this was a bunch of scenes from the cutting room floor mixed in with Sonja’s party. You normally have a name for this…it’s called Lost Footage, and I don’t like being falsely lured into an episode. Thank you and take care.

Sonja is hosting a burlesque party where she will also be performing. Ramona and Avery join her shopping, and poor Avery admits that she doesn’t want to attend a party where “adults are dressed like that.” She clearly wants to be invisible as her mother brings out a rhinestoned corset and dresses as an over-sexed pelican. The sixteen-year-old in me wants to disappear with her. There is a sales person, and I’m thrilled there is a unisex term for retailers. The sales person was either a man, a woman, or a woMan, but regardless, everyone is in agreement that said person is Sonja’s twin.
