Skinnygirl Bethenny Frankel is back and she is happy to be here. In her first blog of the season, she dishes on her return to The Real Housewives of New York and her promise to stay honest and blunt and keep a sense of humor about the wild ride she’s been on.
She starts off, “I am so thrilled to be back on The Real Housewives of New York City. I never thought I would say those words, because I really was ready to leave when I did. I do believe you need to know when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em, and I needed to make an exit at that time.”
Dr. Terry Dubrow has come a long way since being a Househusband! Along with the second season of his hit plastic surgery show Botched premiere next week, which Terry describes as even more intense than last season, he is debuting a new skin care line in the hopes that fewer people will resort to plastic surgery for anti-aging measures.
Terry, who co-stars with another former Mr. Housewife, Dr. Paul Nassif, shares that for season 2 the doctors had an overwhelming amount of applicants needing reconstructive plastic surgery.
“Last season we only had 500 or 600 applicants for surgery. This time we had 6,000,” says Terry. Yowzers – there are a lot of people getting bad work out there!
Look at Kaia and Kane! We’re so glad Kim Zolciak‘s decision to not post pics of herself or her kids on social media anymore lasted only 23 hours – HaHaHa – because it would be a crime to not share all that sass and cuteness.
Kim, Kroy Biermann, Brielle, Brielle’s boyfriend, Ariana, Ariana’s friends, KJ, Kash, Kaia, Kane, Kim’s stylist/friend Shun Melson, and the Don’t Be Tardy camera crew headed to the beach this week for spring break. Sounds cozy. 😉
With her minor tantrum over “rude ass people” leaving nasty comments on her pictures behind her, Kim took to Instagram to share pictures of her kids having fun on the beach. Well, mostly having fun. In the picture above, Kane’s reacting to Kaia crying about the sand. She’s not a fan. Check out more pics below.
Dorinda Medley is the official new girl on the block for this season’s Real Housewives Of New York! However she has several friends on the cast as well as having something substantial in common with Carole Radziwill. Both women are young widows. But just because she got along with some people – doesn’t mean she got along with everyone. Dorinda readily admits to conflict and promises this season, “it’s not going to be boring. At. All.”
Dorinda’s husband, noted hedge fund manager Richard H. Medley passed away in 2011. Dorinda reveals she was approached by Ramona Singer to participate in RHONY previously, but turned it down because she “wasn’t ready.” In fact, she was always considered by Bravo – even way back in season one – because in addition to a friendship with Ramona, she also knows Jill Zarin and LuAnn de Lesseps!
“When she [Ramona] was on in the very beginning, my name was floated around, but my life really couldn’t handle it at the time. She’d still invite me to various parties and functions and you could see me every now and then in some episodes; but after Richard died, I laid low for a while,” Dorinda explains. “Ramona encouraged me to consider it and I think she even pitched me to Bravo, but I wasn’t ready. I always hung out with them anyway, but now instead of being a guest of theirs, I’m a cast member. Funny how that works, huh?”
Leah continued her “happy marriage” charade last week on Facebook, “Today makes 3 years marriage for Jeremy and I. 🙂 #ANNIVERSARY” Within minutes, however, “fans” and “inside sources” came out of the woodwork to call her bluff. Reportedly, the couple did NOT spend their anniversary together, and Jeremy hasn’t been wearing a wedding ring and has been carrying on like a single man for a lot longer than Leah wants to admit.
Bethenny Frankel has come back home to Real Housewives Of New York, except she’s homeless. Are we even sure she lives in New York City at this point, or does she just live in the scaffolding of her own hubris? Delusionally elevating her to the heights of such paragons as Bill Gates and Oprah, whom Bethenny clarifies would not change their underwear in the back of a town car. Clearly, Bethenny doesn’t really know Oprah. Oprah so would! Martha Stewart on the other hand, she would never be so disorganized as to let the prickly fibers of a polyester seatbelt touch her vagi-steamed nether-regions.
It’s clear right from the start Bethenny has an agenda on RHONY: to hawk Bethenny products and be the living incarnate of her Skinnygirl brand, but also to regain fan support by selling her old standby woe-is-me victim yarn. This time about her divorce and the horrible being she reproduced with known as Jason Hoppy, whom if she saw on the street she would ignore as a stranger.
Janet shared on Instagram, “To all my sister’s family friends fans & well wishers my sister @biggangvh1 had a extremely long nerve racking surgery today. She’s now in recovery resting. I wanna thank each & everyone of you for reaching out to us and praying for her & my family today.”
Lisa‘s blog – which she titled Welcome to The Hunger Games Part 2: Catching Liar! – consisted of, “I feel this reunion episode speaks for itself.” And that’s all she wrote…
“I’m keeping this blog short, because… I don’t know what else to say,” admitted Eileen. “I kind of said it all on the show. Or I’m burnt out. I’m not sure. But this is all I’ve got. I’m sorry for the F-bombs if they offended anyone. We should start a RHOBH curse jar. I’m sure we could send at least one of our kids to college with the cash!” College, Smollege.
