Bethenny Frankel is the ultimate conundrum – she doesn’t want anyone in her personal business, yet she won’t she stop talking about her personal business! In her latest confessional interview Bethenny talked marriage, spinoffs, and why listening to other people is a big ole mistake. While her acrimonious divorce from Jason Hoppy remains on-going, Bethenny admits she should have followed her gut and not the paycheck Bravo was dangling in front of her nose and never said “I do!”

Speaking to NYU alumni at a special event, the Real Housewives Of New York star talked lessons she’s learned and deterred others from caving to pressures to get married if it’s not the right person. With a 50% national divorce rate, perhaps Bethenny has a point, but I just can’t stop myself from remembering all the talks Bethenny did about finding your happy and the one and how waiting for Jason was the best thing ever. So, if she knew all along Jason wasn’t the one, what was all that about?

Ironically, Bethenny, who got a degree in psychology from NYU, told an inquiring audience member that she always knew her marriage would fail “I think my instinct and gut going into my marriage [knew] it would turn out the way it did,” she confessed. “I could feel it, but I intellectualized it. People are always talking about ‘Do I go with my head or my heart?’ Go with your gut.” That’s so interesting to me… maybe it was a self-fulfilling prophecy then, Bethenny.

Shannon & David fake funerals

It’s only the second episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County, and Shannon Beador is already worn out. In her latest Bravo blog she says, “I must have watched this episode 10 times. I thought if I saw it enough times I would not cry. It didn’t work.” Shannon’s marriage issues, including husband David’s infidelity, are front and center this season.

Still maintaining that sharing her marital problems with the world is more helpful than hurtful, Shannon claims that the couples therapy filmed for RHOC’s first two episodes “changed both our lives. I never thought our relationship would benefit as much as it did. I wish you could have seen more of the two days that we spent there—so many deep and touching moments.”

Quad Webb-Lunceford

This week on Married to Medicine, Quad Webb-Lunceford decided to give Lisa Nicole Cloud a taste of her own medicine, ordering a background check on her. Quad went the “extra” route and requested a check on Lisa‘s husband and Lisa’s mother’s elbows too. You name it, Quad ordered it.

Quad took to her blog to explain her decision, “It really pains me that I have to conduct a background investigation on someone that I once considered a friend. My intentions were not to hurt or harm ‘She Who Shall Not Be Named’ or her family; however, I did want to set an example as to how NOT to treat a friend. Her behavior and actions were highly disappointing, inappropriate, and unjustifiable. Again, ‘She Who Not Be Named’ and I have never discussed doing business together. I don’t work for her, she doesn’t work for me. She’s not an investor, a stockholder, or a business partner in Picture Perfect Pup – and she never will be.”

The Little Women: LA season 3 cast promo pics had us wondering why season 1 and 2 member Traci Harrison wasn’t included and now we know why!  Traci and her husband Eric Tsou are expecting a baby!  And it’s a boy!

As viewers have seen, Traci and Eric have been trying to have a baby since they tied the knot and suffered two miscarriages along the way.  They shared those losses with the show’s fans in painful detail on the series, but they are now choosing to keep this pregnancy as intrusion-free as they can.  

Shahs of Sunset reunion

Last night, the Shahs of Sunset reunion ended without Jessica Parido sitting in the hot seat, with Mike Shouhed agreeing to go out for post reunion drinks with the ‘friends’ who just trashed him for hours, and with some “to be continued … next season” nonsense.

Asa Soltan Rahmati and Reza Farahan shared their thoughts on Mike’s place in the group and the reunion as a whole with Bravo. When asked if Mike can “make things right” again, Asa said, “Mike can absolutely make things right with the group if he cares enough. We go way back. Our friendships are sacred.” If “if he cares enough” is code for “if he begs master Reza enough” and “sacred” is code for “dysfunctional,” then I totally agree.

RHOC Recap

Last night Real Housewives Of Orange County examined statistical means as correlating to the the challenges of a geographical locale. Or something. 

In case you were feeling stressed out about the lack of available Real Housewives wines (and other sparkly alcoholic beverages), Heather Dubrow is launching her own champagne, not to be confused with Fabellini. Appropriately this champagne is named after Heather’s 5-year-old daughter Colette, who leads Heather to drink. Heather commissions a giant champagne bottle-shaped cake, that she is flying in its own seat on a private plane to Napa for the launch party of Colette Champagne. All of the ladies are invited. Lifestyles of the rich and guest role on canceled sitcom hopefully famous! 

Literally fell asleep – snoooooze, snore, zzzzzzzzzz, yawn at the thought of another Housewives hawking wine storyline.

lhhatl joc mom meeting

Last night’s Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta was everything. All of Yung Joc’s baby mamas are in some book club hybrid that is simply amazing, and the remaining story lines paled in comparison. Don’t believe me? Let’s begin at the beginning…

Tony is trying to convince Kalenna to invest in a new Atlanta nightclub, but after hearing about Stevie J.’s experience, Kalenna is very skeptical…and she shares as much with the requesting investor. Tony hates that Joseline Hernandez gotten into her head to squash this deal, but let’s be honest, someone needs to be asking the hard questions! He’s frustrated that Kalenna has so many reservations about what he considers to be an amazing deal to dump their entire life savings. Not wanting to further upset her husband, Kalenna caves and agrees to fork over all of their cash. Hey, at least they’re getting paid for this show, right?

 Reality TV Stars Peter Thomas and Cynthia Bailey

Peter Thomas cheating?  Did he get caught in the act or is it a storyline set up for the next season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta?

Cynthia Bailey’s husband was ‘busted’ getting very cozy with a young woman at a club and it was caught on Instagram video by The Shade Room.  In the video Peter looks like he’s just pulled back from kissing the woman and has his hands on her neck as the camera pans past them.
