Absolutely nothing the public says can get Bethenny Frankel rattled these days, she says. A hot-and-cold figure as a returning cast member of the Real Housewives of New York this season, Bethenny has “given up caring what people think of her,” according to Page Six. “The line for my personal private life has been so blurred,” says Bethenny, that she has basically become immune to the comments swirling around her. Especially when it comes to her messy divorce from Jason Hoppy, who she is now forced to pay $26,000 a month, plus $100,000 in lawyer fees as part of their divorce settlement.
Despite the media’s often negative depiction of Bethenny as a wife, business woman, and even a mother, the Skinnygirl mogul says she’s become numb to bad press. “It’s great because it’s created a Teflon around me that I don’t even notice it. Nobody could say anything bad about me that would really affect me.” Claiming that her persona on RHONY is a what-you-see-is-what-you-get scenario, Bethenny says she not a person who tries “to manufacture who they are. I’m honest, and that’s why I’ve been successful at it.”
It was all about the hot mess express on Monday’s episode of Southern Charm, but the mode of transportation wasn’t a crazy train–instead it was a golf cart! After Kathryn Dennis went off on Whitney Sudler-Smith in a cyclone-esque storm of hate (one friend described it as “feral”), Craig Conover came to her rescue with more vino, keys to a battery operated tiny-car, and sticks and sand to generate body heat. It was, as you all recall, scandalous.
While Shepard “Shep” Rose had plenty to say about Craig’s recent tomfoolery during the group’s dinner on Jekyll Island, Cameran Eubanks has been the one talking it about it post-show. While some see her as a pot-stirrer, I honestly believe she cares for these turds, and she’s at her wits end trying to help them make good decisions. Of course, we all know that good decisions make for bad reality television. Thankfully for Bravo, there is no shortage of idiotic behavior when it comes to the charming cast!
It’s already been established that Kim Richards is in the world’s most vacation-like rehab center, but has she left already!? Kim was spotted with the sister she does like – the good sister – Kathy Hilton at daughter Brooke’s bridal shower, prompting rumors that Kim has already left the pricey treatment facility! Dr. Phil would not approve…
Kathy shared a photo of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star wearing a ridiculously short dress and posing with Brooke. Maybe Kim was able to score a 2-for-1 day voucher from rehab: attend court where she received her criminal charges, and then hit-up a classy bridal shower?!
There were so many reality stars flooding the streets of NYC yesterday for the NBCUniversal upfront presentations for E! and Bravo that we had to split the pictures up into two posts! In round two of the upfront photos, we have Kim Zolciak and her drop dead gorgeous oldest daughter, Brielle Biermann, posing in front of their hotel as they head off to the event.
That said, it will only be fun (for me) if Tamra is bothered by Meghan, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. <stomps foot> In a recent interview with Real Mr. Housewife, Tamra described Meghan as “one of the coolest girls” she has ever met. <throws wine> Why do these housewives refuse to give me what I want?!?
Nearly every reality star who will have a job next season showed up yesterday for the E! and Bravo Upfronts in NYC. The Kardashians, the Real Housewives and so many more showed up to give advertisers a glimpse of what’s to come on the networks over the next few months.
Kenya Moore was on hand (and even posed with Patti Stanger, so clearly things are fine between them after the marriage debacle of this week) and so was NeNe Leakes – wearing the same top as Giuliana Rancic! Kim Zolciak was there but we didn’t get any red carpet shots of her and daughter Brielle, but hopefully some of those will be up later this morning!
It’s Thursday and that means we’re taking a walking down memory lane via photos! This week’s fun flashback photos feature Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards. Kim has been in the news for negative reasons lately, so we thought it’d be nice to change things up and focus on some positive things – like hilarious fashion choices of the past!
Kim has been an actress since she was very, very little so we have a slew of great pics that span Kim’s entire career. Once again we had a hard time narrowing it down, but take a peek and enjoy the stroll through Kim’s past in pictures! And we even have a few good ones of her sister Kyle Richards, who has also been in the spotlight for many years, too.
