These women on Real Housewives go through a lot of drama- and then they have to watch it all again on TV and hear what everyone had to say behind their back. So I imagine that makes it pretty difficult to get past an argument with a friend (or even a frienemy). On the latest episode of RHONY, Luann de Lesseps did what she could to make amends with Carole Radziwill, but Carole was not having it. Neither of them felt like they had anything to apologize for so they just agreed to be cordial…supposedly.
Carole made a lot of comments about Luann during the interviews so I guess that agreement was short-lived. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to say that this whole fight should be put on Carole, but they both talked a lot of shit about each other. So they both should have just apologized. At least Luann tried to be civil in the Hamptons, but just like the rest of us fans, she also watched the episode and was caught off guard by Carole‘s comments about her. Luckily for us, we don’t have to wait for the next RHONY reunion to hear what she has to say. Luann put all of her reactions in her Bravo blog this week.
RHOBH is not Yolanda’s first foray into reality TV. Back when she was engaged to David Foster and planning their wedding of the century, she was a cast member of Hollywood Vrouwen, aka Hollywood Women, before she got her bigger break on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Fun fact: we can thank Hollywood Women for this little nugget.
In the spirit of Throwback Thursday, we give you Pre-Housewives Yolanda. For no reason other than “just cuz.”
Check out the videos below. Just an FYI: she switches back and forth between Dutch and English.
I don’t know if I’m the only one who feels this way, but ever since Jennifer Snowden emerged as the sidekick to Kathryn Dennis on Southern Charm, I want to know what her deal is. Who is she and what is she about? So naturally I tried to find out more about her with some social media stalking.
As expected, her Twitter was full of tweets showing her loyalty to Kathryn and her Instagram was full of pictures with the cast and captions that tell her followers where they can shop to emulate her style. But one of those posts took me aback. The caption tells her followers where they can get her pretty necklace, but I didn’t even notice. The only thing I saw was a burgeoning baby bump. I’m wondering what I missed, so of course I did a little more investigation.
It’s easy for me to say that I enjoy Bethenny Frankel‘s bluntness, because, you know, I never actually have to sit face-to-face with Bethenny Frankel. But, when it comes to Real Housewives of New York each week, she keeps me on the edge of my seat. Which is more than I can say about the past six months of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
In her blog, Bethenny defends her “at least you know where you stand with me” approach to life, but she also acknowledges that she was out of line Jules Wainstein‘s brunch.
“I am a reality star on a reality show. Bravo asked me to return because they feel that I am honest, direct, and don’t manufacture drama or edit myself. This episode is a brutally honest example of that. I always say: You may not like me, but you know you’re getting the truth. I will forever stand by my tagline,” says Bethenny. “You will also see that if I say or see something, it usually comes to fruition, often before the audience or the other Housewives see it. Please refer to my eight years on reality television.”
With less than a week to until the premiere of Below Deck Mediterranean, Bravo celebrated with a big bash last night in NYC. The cast members partied it up with some of our other favorite Bravolebrities.
Kim Richards may not have been a regular Real Housewives of Beverly Hillscast member this season, but she wanted to share her thoughts on this week’s reunion episode. Kim shared her joy over her upcoming grandchild and also gave her take on Lisa Rinna’s behavior – and more – this season.
“I want to start by saying thank you all for all the love, prayers and encouragement that you showed Monty and my family over these last two years.” Kim misses him immensely, “but he has given me a new strength I never even knew!” Another thing that is giving Kim motivation and strength? The news that she’s going to be a grandma! “By now I’m sure you’ve heard the news that I am going to be a grandma. My daughter Brooke and son-in-law Thayer are expecting a little boy! I can’t wait for this exciting new chapter in our lives. I am thrilled and excited to be Grandma. I know Monty is up there watching over all of us. He is now our true guardian angel!”
Bethenny told us over and over again how cool her party was supposed to be – hot dogs! s’mores! Moscow Mules! Skinnygirl coffee cups! Yet, there for the grace of ungainliness go John, Dorinda Medley‘s boyfriend, a fetid protrusion who dropped a big old stink over the party, thus ruining it for The Big B. Her poor friend Carole Radziwill was equally besieged – the ghost of Countesses Past trailing her through the party seeking absolution? Resolution? Nah – actually a casually polite conversation.
It was a crisp, cool day and that something in the air was pervasive. I don’t think it was the smell of wienies roasting, but that was happening too (metaphor alert!). Pre-party, Dorinda gave John a Cliffs Notes course on etiquette and ran through How To Apologize flashcards to prepare him for seeing Bethenny, but there is no turning back time there. Some stains just simply will not budge – John apparently being one of them!
