It's been quite a week for Bethenny Frankel, especially after Friday's hearing in her divorce from Jason Hoppy. Now, she's focusing on more positive things, like her upcoming talk show. The Bethenny Ever After star calls her hour-long daily sitdown "a public girls' night out," and she's not shy about the topics she plans to highlight…and those she plans to bypass.
Speaking to ABC about the premise for her show, Bethenny explains, “I just have found as you get older, women insulate a little more because they’re just so busy and have so much going on. They don’t really get the chance to really sit down and talk about their marriages, their money problems, their sex problems, infidelity issues. That’s what my talk show is about.”
This week onThe Rachel Zoe Project, Rachel traveled to New York for the opening of DreamDry, William popped over from England like a fashion fairy godmother delivering couture that rendered Rachel temporarily speechless, she gave husband, Rodger Berman, a makeover (but not his hair) and Skyler attempted to hit his mother with a shovel for trying to catch a bit of sleep.
Things begin with Rachel and makeup master Joey bickering about when Rachel will pop out a sibling for Skyler. Rachel trolls off a bunch of excuses and Joey chalks her many excuses up to bullshit. Rachel whines that even showering has taken a back seat in her life since becoming a mom. Sounds like someone’s traded boho chic for hobo chic.. Showering Shmowering, Joey is sick of Rachel’s never ending excuses. Rachel says that she arrived a little late to the party with the whole having accessories kids thing which has kind of gotten in the way. Joey makes the biggest mistake and says forty is the new twenty anyway, and with that Mommy Hobo becomes Valley girl in 2.8 seconds demanding to know who the heck in the room is 40?!? Cos she certainly isn’t the ‘f’ word yet.. ‘like Duh!’… and of course it wouldn’t be a proper Valley girl rant without Rachel sounding off by calling Joey a bitch for speaking such utter nonsense. Poor Joey, at least he now knows the word forty is like Harry Potter’s ‘Voldermort’ in the Kingdom of Zoe.. #Hewhoshouldnotbenamed
Andy kicks off the show asking Porsha how she's doing, "I'm doing alright, I'm here, I'm standing. I'm just being strong right now."
On if she saw the divorce coming, Porsha says, "I was totally blindsided. At the reunion I did feel some kind of way because I did want my husband there with me, but I was standing strong representing for my family. I was a wife, that was my title. That's what I took on and had ownership of."
Porsha then shared how she found out that Kordell filed..and it's crazy! "When I found out about the divorce, it was absolutely a surprise. I was laying in the bed and I Tweeted 'today is the first day of the rest of your life'. I put the phone down and took a little nap and I looked back at my phone and my sister was calling me over and over. She said 'have you heard' and I'm like 'hear what?'." Porsha went back on Twitter and says the first thing she saw was "Kordell is divorcing Porsha". Porsha admits she thought it was a crazy joke. Can you imagine finding that out with your husband just hanging out in the other room?

One of the perks of being a Real Housewife is undoubtedly the non-stop product opportunities. A Housewife's job is never just a Housewife as she hawks everything from modeling schools, to tasers, to spinoff plots, to handbag/hair lines/wines, etc.
Cynthia Bailey has been cashing in on Real Housewives of Atlanta fame with the opening of The Bailey Agency and now with a hair care line and a wine. Talking to The Huffington Post, Cynthia reveals the secrets of leveraging the Housewife Hustle.
"I definitely have benefited from the exposure, launching my business on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, but you do [have to be prepared]," Cynthia admits. "The main thing is don’t overwhelm yourself. Figure out exactly what it is that you want to do, stay focused on that one thing and make that successful. Then you can add things later."
Newsflash of the day – Farrah Abraham is not to blame for anything. Ever.
After her continued attempts at remaining in the spotlight (DUI, sex tape), this time by appearing on Dr. Phil, Farrah is crying foul (again). She Tweeted out to tell us haters what fools we are to believe anything that comes out of her mouth, because of course she got paid for the appearance. So it was all lies, duh!
It's my favorite game of a post-Housewives season: will she or won't she? Return, that is! And just who is also coming on board to start some wicked drama?
Lisa Rinna's name has been tossed around as a "definite" for joining Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. We had our doubts about the validity of the story so we didn't do much coverage of the latest rumor. E! News confirms that Lisa will not be joining the show. So for those of you who had your hearts set on a great lip off between Lisa and Taylor Armstrong, we're sorry to disappoint you!
