Rumors of trouble in Bethenny Frankel‘s marriage continue to swirl. After an article surfaced claiming husband Jason Hoppy had moved out of their apartment and was staying in a nearby hotel, photos emerged of a seemingly happily married couple celebrating their second anniversary.
Now, Bethenny is speaking out and confronting the rumors head-on. “I know you have all been worried about my relationship, and the show got off to an emotional rocky start, but isn’t life like that? Sometimes we cringe, sometimes we get anxiety, but ultimately, we buckle up, hold on, and get to the next place,” Bethenny writes in her Bravo blog.
“I love my husband and my family. Relationships may not have always been my strong point, but I am dedicated to my marriage, to being a better person every day, and to being open and honest in the hopes of helping myself — and hopefully many of you,” the Bethenny Ever After star adds. “This show is about being truthful and giving you a slice of my life during that time period.”
Bethenny explains that she is in a much happier place with her marriage, but as always, she is a work in progress. “I work on being a mother, I work on being a wife, I work on being a good friend and employer, and I work on being a success in business. If all of this comes easy to someone else than more power to them.”
And in case you’re wondering, Bethenny and Jason are still getting frisky! “As far as our sex life, we get down to it. When the show filmed, we had a baby just over one-year-old, and I didn’t quite have my mojo back,” Bethenny reveals.
“I was recently pregnant, and I assure you that wasn’t the immaculate conception. How ridiculous that my sex life is now talk show and cocktail party chatter?” Uhhh… well, if you weren’t on a reality show… oh, never mind – too obvious!
And finally, tonight is an all-new episode of Bethenny Ever After. Bethenny is the subject of constant negative press after tabloids accuse her of staging the lost at sea shenanigan for her reality show. In order to get some positive attention, Bethenny appears on various TV shows, including The Today Show and Ellen. A preview of the new episode is below!
Bethenny Ever After airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.
DO YOU BELIEVE BETHENNY THAT HER MARRIAGE IS STABLE? ARE YOU TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT HER SEX LIFE?

This week’s episode opens with GG explaining that she’s been trying hard to keep it together and be zen-like since the crazy dramatics of the past few weeks. She also talks about buying her parents a new car for their anniversary, which is coming up. Persians love to give lavish gifts, she explains.
Reza Farahan comes over for some wine and to break the news to GG that he won’t be able to attend the party she’s throwing for her parents’ 40th anniversary party. He pretends to be heartbroken over it, but he’s secretly thrilled. “Thank the LOOOORD” Reza yells into the camera. GG isn’t too happy, but knows the date is important to Reza. Reza explains that he feels like his window of opportunity to snag a good man is disappearing. He wants to get out there and find someone while he’s still got it goin’ on.
GG decides to show off her collection of knives. GG grew up with weapons for protection, so it’s very normal to her. I don’t know anyone who names their weapons, but GG is unique. Reza thinks if we look up GG in the dictionary, we’ll find her on the page wielding a machete. “You don’t joke about GG and her knives”. This whole show should be peppered with Reza-isms. They’re my favorite part.
Meet Crispy. GG’s taser gun. 150,000 volts of love. Cripsy scares Reza on several levels – mostly because Golnesa admits she’s dying to try it out on someone.
Sammy Younai stops by Mohamed’s mansion (palace?!) to check up on things. This mansion is crazy. I know where I’m spending my Mega Millions dough. Oh wait, that lady in Maryland that I’m not related to won it. Sammy wants this job to be perfect so she can get in tight with the billionaires. We feel you, Sammy.
GG meets her dad for lunch. She admits to us that she’s been very blessed to have parents who’ve given her everything. She knows she’s lived a pampered life. When her dad asks how her day was, she gripes about the traffic on the way to the mall and chipping her freshly manicured fingers. Her dad gives her grief – gently – about her out of control spending. Daddy tells her that she needs to get a job and then pulls out the most recent credit card statement, which GG doesn’t want to see. He tells her he many not continue to foot the bill – $6800 last month and $8500 this month alone. The food arrives and they shift the conversation to finding GG a man to support her instead. GG’s doesn’t like to hear about her sister Leila’s self-supporting ways, as she’s married and doesn’t have her credit card bills sent to her dad. It’s a touchy subject with GG.
Mercedes “MJ” Javid talks about her upcoming birthday while she blings up her puppies and heads out for a walk with Reza. He asks MJ if she’d come to NYC with him soon for a long-overdue meetup with his estranged father and she agrees.
The conversation to turns to MJ’s weight. Reza has apparently been trying to get her to lose weight for years now and he says he’d like to gift her with a colonic for her birthday. I think i want GG buying my bday gifts. New car or a colonic? Decisions, decisions.
GG’s sister plays hardball with the car dealer over the price of the Mercedes Benz they’ve picked out for their parents. GG is frustrated that she doesn’t get any respect from her sister on the financial front – Leila thinks GG’s job is shopping.
Mohamed is home to see how his ‘house’ is progressing. He isn’t happy despite the fact that Sammy is ahead of schedule. He gives Sammy hell for a few minutes as they do a walk through. Mohamed loves the pool and tile – for $2million he better adore it! Sammy is going to celebrate Mohamed’s praise by getting wasted.
It is quite unfortunate that Bravo can’t just give the ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills their contracts already, because the constant speculation is killing me! In the latest, reports have emerged that contract negotiations have been held up because of fighting amongst the ladies, who do not want to work with each other!
“Let’s just say there are more than a few women who truly don’t get along,” an insider tells Celebuzz. “Two in particular that threaten they won’t return if the other does.”
Kyle Richards pretty much echoed that statement when she confirmed her return was conditional on certain someones getting the axe. “We’ll see,” she said of round three. “It kind of depends which girls are coming back.” Let the speculation begin on just who she was talking about… (ahem, Brandi!)
Brandi Glanville, who is seen as a shoo-in to return next season, dished that contracts still weren’t out. “I’ll know in two weeks,” she shared, also revealing that she’s “so sad” her on-screen bestie Camille Grammer won’t be coming back. “She’s my girl! We had such a great time last season,” Brandi gushed.
And speaking of which, Camille is said to be “devastated” that she will not be involved in the show next season, although I don’t know why considering it was such a horrible train wreck!

Last night’s Mob Wives followed Renee Graziano’s emotional distress, and it becomes more and more evident that something shady was going on with husband Junior Pagan in regard to her father’s arrest.
Renee is still in a very bad place after both Junior and her father went away on the same day. Karen Gravano understands that, perhaps they needed to be arrested, but she wishes the feds could have at least waited until after Thanksgiving. Over the phone, her friend Nikole pleads with Renee to motivate herself for A.J.’s sake. While, Renee promises she doesn’t let her son see her so upset, she is screaming and sobbing for most of the conversation.
Ramona comes to visit Big Ang at the bar. Ramona shares with Big Ang how horribly Renee is doing. Big Ang has left her multiple messages, but she had no idea things were so bad. They discuss the need to get Renee out to take her mind off of the situation. Ramona can’t believe that Junior would surrender to the feds, and not even tell Renee and A.J. that he was doing so. She knows now that Thanksgiving will be forever tainted for Renee, much like it is for her, as her grandfather died on Thanksgiving. Ramona states that her grandfather was the true definition of “a gangster” that is lacking in today’s society. Big Ang agrees…no one is loyal anymore. Are these women listening to themselves? I know that Ramona loved her grandfather and he no doubt thought she hung the moon. However, for her to be hung up and proud on the fact he was a criminal, is a little off to me.
Carla Facciolo and Drita D’avanzo meet for lunch, and Carla fills in Drita on Renee’s breakdown. Drita can’t imagine what Renee is going through. She thinks that maybe she should take the kids to visit Lee in jail before the holidays. She hasn’t seen him in over a year. Carla tells Drita that Junior left a note before turning himself in to the feds. Drita can’t believe it – she thinks that if Junior was going to surrender, he should have let Renee take him in to say good-bye.
Drita heads to the Drunken Monkey to see Big Ang. She tells Big Ang she is considering taking the kids to see Lee. Drita admits it’s hard to try to shield her daughters from this lifestyle, only to have to take them somewhere as scary as a prison. Big Ang agrees, but she thinks all men look pretty hot in prison uniforms.
Carla and Joe take their kids roller skating. They really are such a cute family. I hope Joe can stay on the straight and narrow because it is obvious his young son truly idolizes him. Meanwhile, Renee goes to Ramona’s for a pre-Thanksgiving dinner. She promises she will stand behind Junior while he’s in jail. Renee has decided to put a positive spin on Junior’s incarceration, because she knows he can’t cheat on her in the slammer. She is brought to tears talking about her father though. Karen arrives and proposes a toast, and Renee starts screaming like a banshee. Celebrate? They expect her to celebrate? She can’t do this – and she leaves. I hope she’s getting some help.
At home, Drita shares a fun moment with her youngest daughter. She hopes to be both a mother and father to her girls, in Lee’s absence. When she tries to bring up the possibility of visiting Lee, Giselle doesn’t want to go. She doesn’t know who he is, she hasn’t even comprehend who “Daddy” is. Even with Drita’s chiding, Giselle is adamant about not meeting Lee. Drita is heartbroken.
Big Ang, Ramona, and Karen take Renee to a drag queen show in an attempt to take her mind off what she’s going through. Big Ang loves a drag show because they sort of remind her of, well, herself. Renee is even laughing – the women can’t believe it! Over cocktails, Drita tells Carla that there are rumors circulating that Junior snitched on Renee’s dad. Carla is floored. Drita and Carla’s husbands were both incarcerated, thanks to rats. Well, thanks to doing criminal activity, but they were ratted out by others doing the same thing. This news makes Carla sick to her stomach.
Karen and Carla meet for dinner, and the pair discusses an article that accuses Junior of flipping on Renee’s father. Of course, Karen needs to clear the air…yes, her father “cooperated” with the feds, but he didn’t do the “scummy act” of wearing a wire. There is no comparison between Karen’s father “cooperating” and Junior “ratting” on Renee’s dad. After setting the record straight on that little issue, Karen hopes that Renee will be able to overcome this madness.
Big Ang has a friend over to her house, and they are chatting about the recent Junior gossip. Big Ang makes it clear that there are rules in this lifestyle and Junior has broken them. His selfish actions will affect how people see Renee and A.J., and that is a tragic thing to do to one’s family. She reveals that when she was arrested, the police tried to get her to be an informant, but no way, according to Big Ang.
Karen and Ramona go to Renee’s house to make sure she’s okay. Renee cannot, and will not believe the article. She points out that the writer has had to recant three different stories. Renee is worried the way things are going A.J. will be losing his mother next, as she’s stretched so thin emotionally. Renee knows that A.J. is being punished for having a father who is accused of being a rat. She apologizes to Karen for having to go through all of this again, as she was labeled similarly due to her father. She breaks down apologizing for not being a good friend to Karen when she returned last year. She is all over the place, crying, shaking, calm, quiet. Karen wants Renee to face the facts that the gossip could be true, but she refuses.
Renee goes to church in hopes of finding some peace. Big Ang goes to visit her sister Janice with a copy of The Post, which basically confirms the rumors that Junior snitched on Renee’s father. Renee is a basketcase and it’s very difficult to watch.
Next week, Renee tries to come to grips with the news. She now believes that Carla has been talking crap about her behind her back. Carla accuses Renee of being extremely paranoid given her current state of affairs.
WHAT DID YOU THINK OF LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE? WILL RENEE BE ABLE TO PULL HERSELF OUT OF HER DEPRESSION? SHOULD DRITA TAKE HER DAUGHTERS TO VISIT LEE?
Khloe Kardashian is out to squash the rumors that she and hubby Lamar Odom are on the skids. So, she did what any well-trained celebrity does when they want us know that something is for realz – head to Twitter to overshare. Khloe showed her love for Lamar in a photo collage on her website.
Khloe tweeted “How cute is my hubby?!?!? Hi my loves! Just wanted to post a few pics that I’ve tweeted of me and my hubby recently. It’s been over two years and I still feel like the luckiest girl in the world every single day! There’s no greater feeling than being in love :)” and attached a photo gallery titled “Just A Few Pics Of Me And My Lammy!”
And then she proceeded to write his name in glitter and puffy paint all over her notebook.
Khloe also gave a new interview, explaining that she and Lamar are BFF’s – no matter what the press tries to say. “I say it like I’m kidding, but we’re both obsessed with each other. I’m a very goofy person and although he’s shy, when he’s with me, he’s really playful. He’s my best friend.”
Usually, when celebrities try this hard to convince us they’re TOTALLY in love with their significant other, a breakup is on the horizon, but I’m not so sure in the case of Khloe and Lamar. They seem the more likely of any of the Kardashians to make a relationship work.
As if a pending split with Lamar wasn’t enough, the newest issue of Reality Weekly magazine claims that Kim Kardashian and Khloe are barely speaking these days. A family source shared with the mag that Khloe has had enough of Kim’s bossy ways and the move to Dallas has put an even bigger divide between the sisters.
“Basically, Khloe has been letting Kim have it on all fronts and Kim is refusing to take it. They’re not speaking nearly as often as tehy used to, even when they’re in the same room. They’ve had issues for years, Kim is bossy with everyone but she’s always been especially bad with Khloe. ” The source continues saying that since she married Lamar, Khloe is standing up to Kim a lot more than she did in the past.
The source also said that Kim had mentioned a desire to adopt and Khloe is furious. “She can’t believe that Kim would actually think she’s capable of having a child right now when she can’t even make the right decisions. It’s making it hard on everyone else, but neither of them seem to care. Kim and Khloe are better off having a long break from each other.”

WithTeen Mom, original sauce cancelled, Teen Mom 2 gotta pick up the slack and unfortunately, the cast members of MTV’s notorious trainwreck reality show are continuing to keep themselves in the news for breaking the law.
In the latest, Adam Lind, 21, the sometimes boyfriend of Chelsea Houska, was arrested for a DWI Saturday morning. Adam was pulled over for riding his motorcycle while allegedly intoxicated and driving on a suspended license. RadarOnline is reporting that Adam was arrested by Minnehaha County Sheriffs in Sioux Falls, South Dakota around 2:30 am Saturday morning. He was held behind bars for a few hours and released on $450 bail.
“He was charged with driving under the influence, exhibition driving and driving on a suspended license,” an insider reveals. Witnesses report Adam had been bar hopping all night and was driving home on his motorcycle when he was pulled over after the police observed him “hotdogging”.
Adam was bailed out by, but who else, Chelsea – who cannot seem to give up on the unwilling to reform bad boy. Sources report that she posted his bail early Saturday morning. Adam is due back in court April 26th to face charges associated with his arrest.
This is, of course, not the first arrest for father of the year, Adam, who even has a prior for underaged drinking! According to sources, “Adam turned 21 in January and has been drinking even more since then.”
Even worse, a source tells Starcasm, that this is Adam’s second DUI arrest since reaching the milestone birthday! Wowzers! Adam’s mug shot has not been released yet, but we’ll keep you posted once it surfaces on the net!
Atlanta, Atlanta, Atlanta…There is so much going on that I don’t know where to start! If you had told me several seasons ago that Kim wouldn’t be with Big Poppa, Phaedra would be accused of being a criminal kingpin, and NeNe would be a legitimate actress on a television show, I would have died laughing. Looks like the joke is on me!
As you recall, Phaedra Park’s former friend Angela Stanton has promoted an e-book in collaboration with Vibe. Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil makes some pretty strong accusations regarding Phaedra being the mastermind behind a crime spree that landed both Angela and Apollo Nida in jail. Vibe.com shared a series of video interviews with Angela in conjunction with her book release. In one of the videos, she states that Apollo’s “brother” lied about the extent of Angela’s involvement, in an effort to take the heat off Phaedra.
Now Vibe is issuing a “clarification“–or what regular folks would call an “Oops!”–on Angela use of the term “brother.” The site back pedals, “In the first clip (of three), Ms. Stanton refers to an individual involved in the criminal scheme described in the book, as the brother of Apollo [Phaedra’s husband]. It appears as if Everett and Apollo are not related by blood and Ms. Stanton refers to Everett as Apollo’s ‘street brother’ in her book. The statements made in the video clips were made by Ms. Stanton in a figurative manner and not in literal terms.” I wonder how many other Oops clarifications the site will have to make in connection with this book. Tamara Tattles notes that the book, which was holding the 67th spot on Amazon upon its release, has now dropped to the 5,289th position.
NeNe Leakes seems to have a new biffle in the form of Glee creator Ryan Murphy. The Neenster has been honing her acting skills on the hit series, and it was just announced that she will be starring in Murphy’s latest pilot, The New Normal. The show centers around a gay couple and their surrogate, and NeNe will play the recurring role of Rocky. It appears that the RHOA reality star may have found the perfect way to channel her dramatic personality!
NeNe recently tweeted a picture of her famous bestie, stating, “THE MAN that is changing my life 1 script @ a time Ryan Murphy.”
Adding another photo of her and Ryan for her followers, NeNe tweeted, “I gotta get that Emmy baby & this man is helping me make sure that happens.” Both of those photos are below.
NeNe’s former best friend/current nemesis Kim Zolciak also took to the twitterverse to defend herself when a follower called out her behavior towards former assistant Sweetie Hughes. After someone tweeted “RT @snooki I hate when people are mean to their assistants. Your not cool. responded, @throughmyeyes__ how about my former assistant/friend @sweetieHughes is one of my dearest closest friends soooo stfu!”
Mere minutes later, Kim gave quite a shout out to her friend, tweeting, “First vacation in a loooong time w/ out @sweetieHughes we already miss u!!! If u wanna come I got u ;)” A hilarious picture of Kim’s wigs on said vacation is also below!

OurTeresa Giudice, the little table flipper that could, is finally set to be Project Manager on tonight’s Celebrity Apprentice. The housewife best known for her juicy, bankruptcy-filing husband and fiery temper has kept her cool so far, but taking on the job of PM always brings out the fireworks.
In a recent interview with US Magazine, Teresa insists that Celebrity Apprentice is “cattier” than housewives because “you’re with a bunch of people you met for the first time.” Teresa says, “You really don’t care what the other person thinks of you and if you say something, you’ll just say it.” I don’t know if I buy this theory. On housewives, Teresa’s own brother and sister-in-law have said some pretty awful things about her, and I would say the Manzo brigade have been a lot cattier towards Teresa than her apprentice co-stars could ever be.
On her own blog, Teresa devotes an entire post to co-star Aubrey O’Day, and she insists that we would all love Aubrey if we just got to know her like she did. Maybe, but I think I’ll pass on living with Aubrey. Teresa blames Aubrey’s loud, verbose personality on the tyranny of youth:
The thing is, she’s young and she’s a little hyper and she talks a LOT. It does aggravate other people on CA, I can see how it looks to the viewers, but here’s how I see it: she’s young. I was the same way at 27. You’re just on fire to prove to the world how smart you are. In your 30s, you settle down a bit. She’s still fighting and I love that about her.
Teresa even went over to Aubrey’s apartment and stood by while Aubrey did her weekly Ustream show, popping in a bit to talk about Celebrity Apprentice and awkwardly answer questions from their Ustream chat room. Watch what happens when someone asks them who they think is “the sexiest” male on the show. Teresa comes in at the 11:00 minute mark.
Soon your television will soon be all Teresa, all the time, with the premiere of the fourth season of Real Housewives of New Jersey on Bravo on April 22. Teresa mentions the insane third season reunion in her US Magazine interview; that reunion was filmed while season four production had already started, so it was kinda nuts mixing up the drama. “The [season 3] reunion was really confusing, because we were taping season 4, so that’s why it didn’t go in sync with [the episodes that aired at the time]. Season 4 is definitely an eyeopener and it’s going to answer a lot of people’s questions.”
All of this attention should bode well for the May 15 release of Teresa’s third book, Fabulicious! Fast and Fit. I checked and Teresa’s “ghostwriter,” or “co-writer” Heather McLean depending on who you choose to believe, is listed on Amazon as a “Contributor.” Heather, apparently “contributed” to Teresa’s two other books.
Those royalty checks will be nice for Teresa, who TMZ spotted shopping at Marshall’s last week. How decidedly not fabulous! I hope she paid in cash. A photo of Teresa caught shopping at Marshall’s is below!
