One show Bethenny has been avoiding is her former television home, Real Housewives of New York. But not for lack of trying! According to "sources" Bethenny reached out to former BFF-turned nemesis Jill Zarin to beg her to appear as a guest. She also approached reportedly broke former housewife Alex McCord and dangled a financial incentive in front of her nose.
So did the ladies take her up on it? Not. A. Chance! “The show called Alex’s publicist and told them about their grand plan, but said that all they could offer her was $400 — which is less than the SAG minimum,” a source informed Radar Online. Bethenny is a girl who loves a bargain!
Kate Gosselin appeared on Bethenny Frankel's talk show today. Bethenny asked Kate point blank how she spent her Jon & Kate Plus 8 earnings. Kate turned the conversation around – poor little divorced me – and said a few things about co-parenting that Bethenny really needs to apply to her own life.
First – the money! Where did it all go? Bethenny pointed out that Kate made a ton of money during Jon & Kate Plus 8's wildly successful run. Typical Kate hemmed and hawed a bit but ultimately agreed and said it was a blessing.
Bethenny continued, "You said publicly you kind of need to support your kids. You need money to support your kids. So I think people want to know where the money went, where the money is."
Kate answered, "The majority of what we made, I personally took and put into a college fund for the kids because they will go to college. So I use coupons and we don't wear top brands. Those things, to me, really aren't overly important, but college, school, and the house where they live is important.
Caroline has made no secret that she wishes Al were more present in their marriage and would consider retiring. But now sources tell Perez Hilton that their marriage is majorly on the rocks and Caroline is forcing Al to spend time with her! They do seem really disconnected, I mean he seems like he never wants to be around. Sad.
Terry, whose reality TV career kicked off before Real Housewives of Orange County with shows like Bridalplasty and The Swan, will be joining the show to help regular people fix previously botched procedures. I wonder if any of Heather Dubrow's Housewife friends will be making an appearance? Ahem… Vicki!
The show will be featured on E! and is yet untitled. Terry is currently embroiled in a lawsuit from a former patient alleging that he botched a procedure he performed on her.

TELL US – WILL YOU WATCH TERRY AND PAUL'S NEW SHOW?
For every bout of bad behavior, every Bravo star has a sob story and tiny violin to play to explain it away. Real Housewives of Miami'sAdriana de Moura is no exception. Listen, I'm not discounting a troubled youth or a sad home life or awful relationships which lead to low self-esteem, but don't we all have these same issues on some level or another?
Where else should these "explanations" be aired but on their Bravo blog? Adriana uses hers this week to share why she has such trust issues and why meeting with the minister was so important to her and her husband fiance Frederic.
If any of y'all are watching I Dream of NeNe (and I don't get the feeling that many of you are), you know that NeNe Leakes' ego takes center stage and is second to not much else. Now, I like the Neenster, but Bravo may have put too many eggs in one basket by making this a season-long series. There's just not that much to it.
So, leave it to NeNe (another potential spin-off title?) to start drumming up the press for the sixth season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. NeNe is a promoter at heart, and she knows who butters her bread. She's no doubt happy to generate some Bravo buzz about the next RHOA go-round, which, by the way, starts a month from today on November 3rd!
