We give Bethenny Frankel a lot of crap for a multitude of things, but we give credit where credit is due = the woman is fearless and she doesn’t take herself too seriously.
Bethenny’snew talk show has been making a few headlines over it’s saucy topics – mostly sex – and she’s making no excuses for it. The former Housewife says she’s like Oprah, only dirtier. She tells In Touch magazine, “I’m the R-rated Oprah!”
Bethennysays she is just like every other woman out there and wants to keep the conversation real. “I’m talking about what my friends are talking about every day. We aren’t talking about politics — we’re talking about dating, marriage and what men think.”
She shares why she’s been focusing on sex as the topic of many of the first episodes of her show, which is finishing it’s third week on the air. “Someone says they don’t have enough of it, and someone else says it’s boring. But the bottom line is, I’m just like many of the married women in America who watch my show. Sometimes we just want to spice it up a little bit.”
Days after Lifetime released the newest crop of designers for the tenth season of Project Runway comes a report of massive cast unrest during filming!
According to the NY Post’s Page Six during last Friday’s taping a psychologist was brought to the set after one contestant had a full-on meltdown and another contestant suddenly quit the show! “We lost two designers in one day. This has never happened. They seem to be under a lot more pressure,” a source revealed.
“The show is in its 10th season and has been filming for a week, and there is a lot more tension and pressure on the designers,” the source added.
Pick your chin up off the floor, y’all–Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ Brandi Glanville is workin’ a pole! Don’t look too shocked…she’s not getting naked or anything. The cast apparently just went on a mini-vacay to Vegas, cameras in tow, of course, to scope out a potential new gig for Ms. Glanville. She’s going to be hosting bachelorette parties in Sin City! Pole dancing all around!
A source tells RadarOnline.com that Brandi is natural, saying, “Eddie [Cibrian] bought Brandi a pole before they split up and she absolutely loves it! She’s amazing on it and has quite a skill set! She’s really excited about the new gig and it’s going to be a lot of fun!” Wow! That source is very animated! Wouldn’t you say?!?!
The classiest (bwhahaha!) family on television is up to more antics. First up the never-ending Kris Humphries vs. Kim Kardashian divorce saga continues to rage on.
These two are taking their vitriol out on others by subpoenaing every single person the other one has ever met; from ex-girlfriends, to former hookups, to the clerk at the drugstore where Kim bought condoms and lip gloss (OK, I added that last part).
You know, Kim met the President – is he next on the list? Anyway, anyone remember Kim’s former publicist Jonathan Jaxson? You know, the famewhore one who was threatening to write a Kardashinan tell-all and claimed that the engagement ring Kim was sporting was actually purchased by her while she was dating Reggie Bush? He also said her wedding was a publicity stunt.
Hollywood Exes on VH1 features Jessica Canseco (ex to Jose Conseco), Nicole Murphy (ex to Eddie Murphy), Andrea Kelly (ex to R. Kelly), Sheree Fletcher (ex to Will Smith), and Mayte Garcia (ex to Prince). They all have famous exes, but the show is about the these women living their lives as friends, moms, and business women.
Sheree Fletcher shows Andrea Kelly around LA. LA is a completely different world for Andrea, who recently moved there from Chicago. They start at the Sprinkles Cupcakes “ATM” machine. Andrea says, “Shut the door and check your email!” Andrea brings a ton of personality to this show. But I might have to start watching it with closed captioning, because 54% of the time I have no idea what she’s saying.
Not many people realize that R. Kelly was married to Andrea. Being a “phantom” took its toll on Andrea, she says.
Oh, Vicki Gunvalson… we all know the truth. After you were forced to return your rent-a-mink (for which your deposit was surely lost following the pit-stains and odor of BO) you are now denouncing fur! Suuuurrrrre… a likely story.
“The world has changed and I must change as well. Fur, while it was never something I needed or specifically wanted, it was in my mindset as something glamorous and a sign of success for a woman,” Vicki mused in her Bravo blog.
Of course, now that the Real Housewives of Orange County star realized the fur she loved was only her’s for an evening, she is claiming that she covets fur no more! And she’s giving PETA all the credit for her epiphany! “That is absolutely no longer the case. When PETA sent me video footage of investigations on fur farms, I was horrified by the cruelty involved,” she claims.
Skinnygirl and Bethenny Ever After star Bethenny Frankel once again finds herself involved in a lawsuit over her multi (multi, multi!) million dollar baby. Although she sold her Skinnygirl Cocktail line to Jim Beam for a few bucks, Starcasm.com reports that she was recently deposed in a class action suit regarding the brand. The suit alleges that the drinks are made with rotgut tequila instead of the 100% blue agave tequila that the label boasts. Okay, sure.
