Last night on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills everybody got pampered and relaxed and got along swimmingly. Oh, wait – wrong show! The ladies continued their trip back in time to Beverly Hills High with Kyle playing the real-life all grown up Brenda Walsh, and Kim as her sidekick, and poor Brandi the victim of all their immaturity. I give Brandi credit – she stood her ground while retaining her dignity and did not bend to the almighty queens of bitchery.

Things start off with a little cooking lesson. Lisa has decided she can bear no more of Adrienne’s inadequacies in the kitchen and simply must teach her to roast a chicken. After everyone puts on their surgical gloves, they begin washing the chicken with dish soap – for anti-bacterial purposes. Then they stuff things up his bum after removing his guts. I guess Lisa was practicing for her treatment of Brandi later on! Adrienne is absolutely hopeless in the kitchen – hence the reason she has a chef – can’t find the salt and pepper or any of her three fridges, and just isn’t having fun. Was anyone else surprised they were stuffing a chicken’s butt with all their jewelry on?

In rumor round 8 zillion about the Real Housewives of New York firings, a new report is now alleging that Bethenny Frankel got her former best friend Jill Zarin axed from the show!

Bethenny has had a tough shakes of things lately, and there has been much speculation about her versions of the truth being you know, truthful, but is she really still so angry at Jill she would sabotage her career? Somebody thinks so!

Bethenny is the subject of a scathing new report by the New York Post which not only claims she plotted to get Jill fired from the show that made them both famous, but that she’s also a master manipulator, and that the real-life of Bethenny is totally different than what the world sees.

I’m not sure how reliable this unnamed source is and I’m also not sure I believe most of this article, but you can decide for yourself what you think.

“Every single person in her life is someone who is on her payroll, including her husband, Jason Hoppy,” the insider insists. “Bethenny’s whole agenda has been to keep it real, and none of it is real. It’s all planted stories and her trying to bury her enemies.”

“Everything she’s done, from what she did to Jill Zarin on the show with behind-the-scenes torture to what she’s doing now, is pure Bethenny.” The insider, who purports to be close to Bethenny, is not giving a reason for why Bethenny would still harbor such resentment towards Jill and claims that during her final season as a housewife, Bethenny refused to speak to Jill unless cameras were rolling and exacerbated a petty argument into a “full-blown war” in order to boost her popularity. That same insider also claims Bethenny manipulates Andy Cohen.

An unnamed media observer declares that Bethenny went into Housewives with a plan. “She had done a reality show, with Martha Stewart’s ‘The Apprentice,’ before any of the other housewives, so she was always 10 beats ahead.”

“She is the best publicist-marketer-hustler I’ve ever seen. She is PT Barnum. But the sad thing is the amount of people she’s thrown under the bus to get to where she is,” observer continues.

The article claims Bethenny “carefully manipulates reporters to meet her goals,” alleging that early on in her career, Bethenny would call gossip columnists to plant items that were either exaggerations or blatantly false, aka the rumor that she dated A-Rod. Several gossip editors reportedly instituted a “Bethenny ban” because her calls were so frequent.

“She dated WireImage’s photographer Kevin Mazur and made sure to get pictures on the red carpet before anyone knew who she was. She is the best publicist-marketer-hustler I’ve ever seen. She is PT Barnum. But the sad thing is the amount of people she’s thrown under the bus to get to where she is,” says a media observer.

The unidentified insider feels Bethenny’s days on top may be numbered as even those in her employ are tired of her “More, more, more, mine, mine, mine” attitude. “Being around her is like having chest pains,” the source explains. “She is a horrible, horrible screamer. Every person around her is feeling the anxiety. She goes from 0 to 60 in a second. You open the door, and you have no idea. It could be a storm, it could be a dozen roses.”

“I hate to say it, but as one of the producers from the show told me: ‘We’re just hoping it’s going to be, “Bethenny’s Getting a Divorce?” snipes the insider. “Because how long can this go on for?” the source comments on the fate of Bethenny’s show Bethenny Ever After. “The minute she stops being viable for Andy and making money, he’ll walk away from her just like he walked away from everyone else,” says the same insider who accuses her of manipulating Andy.

The source also alleges that Bethenny’s got Jill axed from RHONY. Does she really have that much pull??? Bethenny’s “whole game plan was to pull Jill down, and she did it and Jill got fired.”

Jill who has recently spoken out defending her former friend’s on-going troubles in the media (hey, she knows from experience), stated: “I hope she sees [the bad press] as a mere bump in the road and chalks it up to a lesson learned. Everyone makes mistakes but it is how you handle it that defines you.”

But when a fan Tweeted Jill a link to this article, writing: “This article confirms everything I always suspected about Bethenny & Andy Cohen! Vindication for @JillZarin at last!!” Jill responded, Tweeting back: “Sad day for me to find out.”

Jill later followed up with another Tweet pertaining to the article, remarking: “Haters will never believe truth. It would mean admitting they were wrong.” Bethenny has yet to comment on the accusations. It appears Jill is insinuating the article is accurate and Bethenny did get her fired… which all seems slightly absurd! Did Bethenny get Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon fired as well? At the end of the day, I don’t believe Bethenny has enough pull at Bravo to get anyone fired!

THOUGHTS ON THE ARTICLE? WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE? IS THIS THE WORK OF A BITTER UNNAMED SOURCE TRYING TO TEAR DOWN BETHENNY’S SUCCESS OR TRUTHFUL INFORMATION?


On last night’s FINAL episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey I breathed a serious sigh of relief, opened up the wine for a guzzlet or two, and prepared to cringe. I have run out of steam with these people. I’m going to try and cover this the best I can, but there was a lot of yelling about things like Kool-aid that left me confused. So, hang in there!

The show opens with Andy’s attempts at fun by bringing up Joe G-to-the-Orga’s horniness and The Gorgasm? A montage of all the couples’ lovey-dovey moments is replayed, except for Caroline and Albert. Cause I guess they don’t have them – or Caroline just won’t discuss them. Uh-huh. Apparently Joe Gorga has a history of dressing up like a lady – it goes way back to when he was little. This is explains a lot. Did The Gorgas want two Teresas?! Ooooohhh… the stress that image just caused!

As long as there has been reality television, there have been reality television feuds. And of course, as long as there have been Real Housewives, there have been Real Housewives feuds. Case in point, the current feud involving Teresa and the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast!

If you watched the first half of the New Jersey reunion last week, you saw, as did the rest of the world, what would appear to be a very unlikely housewives’ feud between former friends and now enemies Teresa Guidice and Caroline Manzo. And as we learn on tonight’s reunion conclusion, the Guidice/Manzo blow-up seems to have undertones of Manzo versus Manzo as Teresa makes sure to bring up the discord between Caroline and her sister Dina Manzo.

But first in an interview with People right after the reunion, Teresa claims to love her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga despite just telling In Touch Weekly that Melissa married her brother Joe Gorga for his money. “I love my family,” states Teresa. “I love Melissa. My brother is married to her for seven years… I’m trying to make things better.” Teresa adds: “They are trying to make it look like I’m hurting Melissa. But, if anything, I always stuck by her.” Always stuck by her???

When it comes to Caroline, Teresa plays the victim changes her tune, saying, “I don’t get Caroline’s problem with me. I never did anything to intentionally hurt people.” Maybe, maybe not, but I certainly never heard her apologize for unintentionally hurting people. Claiming she was “set up” by her cast mates on the reunion, Tre continues, “I never, ever got in between Dina and Caroline. It’s none of my business.” That may very well be the case, but one has to wonder, why does she even bring it up tonight then?

Maybe her reason is spite. Caroline did reveal on national television that Teresa recently called brother Joe an a$$hole. Family tit-for-tat, perhaps? You air my dirty laundry, I’ll air yours! Thankfully, Caroline has taken to her Bravo blog to clear up any confusion on her part.

She writes, “I don’t regret anything I said at the reunion to Teresa, because I was telling the truth. All of our emotions were on overdrive from the night before and I couldn’t hide my feelings. I didn’t see why I should at this point. Wait a minute, correction, I do regret one thing; I will never forget the look on Joe Gorga’s face when he saw the clip of me outing Teresa’s true feelings about reconciling with him. Many of you think Teresa said this to me in confidence, not true, it was widely known and said to others beside myself. Joe didn’t deserve to hear that, and I wish I never said it.”

Caroline also touched on the comments Teresa made about her in her cookbook which included calling her 1/16th Italian. “It was never about the Italian remark, it was about the underhanded sneaky insults towards the rest of us followed by an insincere apology. I referred to her once as a modern day Lucille Ball because of her flighty “innocence” and goofy personality back in the day. To use my words as a defense against your insulting remarks towards my son is unbelievable. Apology not accepted.”

Discussing her issues with Dina, Caroline states that her reasoning for wanting to keep it quiet on the reunion had less to do with her pride and more to do with her parents. She says, “My fear in having this issue exposed had nothing to do with me at all. It was all about my parents.” She continues, “Teresa knew how important it was to me to keep the Dina issue hidden, but tried numerous times throughout the season and through her blogs and interviews to reveal it. She finally had her moment at the reunion. Did she think I would deny it? Congratulations, Teresa, the only thing you succeeded in doing was hurting my parents. What a fool I’ve been in my efforts to bring your family together when it was your intent to destroy mine from the start.” Ouch!

Caroline continues to discuss the feud with her sister, admitting, “Despite all the rumors circulated about Dina and me, I remained completely silent, making not one single remark. Many of you confuse my silence on Twitter, Facebook, and in the media as guilt. Quite the opposite, it’s a matter of self-respect. Why sensationalize the situation? I’m only writing this now, because I believe as viewers you deserve some answers, I will never speak of this again, as it is a private matter that will take time and love to heal, but mark my words, this too shall pass.”

Dina echoes her sister’s sentiments, stating, “Teresa has nothing to do with my relationship with my sister. I wish all of the girls peace and happiness in their lives. As far as my relationship with my sister is concerned I’m sure in time things will mend itself.”

Caroline finishes up her blog by stating: “Teresa may think she hurt me, but what she doesn’t understand is that she can never hurt me, because I take into account where it’s coming from. Unlike you, Teresa, I can look in the mirror and hold my head high knowing that I have always given the best of myself to my family and friends. I live my life with integrity and self-respect.”

So Teresa didn’t cause the feud, she just brings it up tonight on the second half the reunion? I, for one, can’t wait to see the drama unfold. Watch a sneak peek of tonight’s madness below. The conclusion of the reunion airs tonight on Bravo at 10PM ET.

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the ladies just couldn’t seem to get along and Brandi was again an outsider with only Adrienne and Taylor willing to be her friend – but only when no one else was looking! It kinda reminded me of Heathers! Watch your drink, Kyle!

Game night continues to rage on at Dana’s. Brandi tries to call a “Time-Out” but the Richards are in full attack mode, Winston Churchill be damned; they subscribe to Napoleonic tactics! Kyle is still upset Brandi let her son pee on Adrienne’s grass – ok, it’s tacky, but c’mon! Brandi is furious that Kyle is talking about her kids, but Kyle is actually talking about Brandi’s bad mothering!

Camille admits Kyle can be a B-I-T-C-H. Sick of the Richards’ superior attitude, a sniffling Brandi snaps that everyone else is trailer park and they’re Queens of England. Um…no, Kim redirects, only Brandi is trailer park! And Kyle’s not wearing a tiara! Duh! Well, I kinda think Kyle wears one at home when no one is looking, don’t you?

Last night’s Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion from hell gave me stress-induced anxiety, like for real! I could not guzzle the wine fast enough! The rage was palpable and the ladies were down right dirty. This made RHONY’s reunion seem almost tolerable. Did I just type that?!

First of all, does anyone remember that notorious website Socialite Rank? Well, I wish we had a website devoted to Housewives Ranking, called of course, Housewives Rank, because if we did The Caroline and Teresa would be neck and neck for bottom of the heap after last night’s dreadful performance! Melissa had her moments of dirty as well, and for the most part Kathy kept her hands clean and imagined beautiful beaches and escape. Me too, Kath!

*Simple Disclaimer – I am a woman without a housewife – I play no favorites. I participate in equal opportunity snarking. All the ladies are ridiculous to a degree (yes, some more than others) and I like to spread the snark around!

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the ladies went back in time to West Beverly High to relive their high school days of catty drama, cliques, and mean girls. Oh, I love a good time warp! The only thing missing was some killer acid wash jeans and a pouf bang!

Lisa and Ken are preparing for a dinner party to celebrate the return of Pandora and Jason from NYC. Lisa is cooking dinner (yes, it appeared that she was actually preparing food sans chef) whilst Ken assisted with the wine tasting. Lisa’s son Max got on the phone with his girlfriend and dropped an “I love you” leaving Lisa in a tailspin. While she is all but marching Pandora down the aisle, she isn’t sure about some other girl stepping on her toes where Max is concerned!

From domestic divas to people who don’t know what their microwave looks like, Taylor is making cookies from a box and needs Dana’s help. Both ladies don aprons and then poke at a bowl of unconvincing looking batter while lamenting about Adrienne’s BBQ where the notorious c-o-c-k incident occurred! Taylor mentions the upcoming “Game Night” she was supposed to host at her house but asks if Dana can take over since she has too many … issues going on. Event planner Dana is fine with hosting the big event, but will be outsourcing the planning cause she’s too busy. Keep in mind, Dana’s career is Event Planning and she supposedly has put on events like the Grammy’s.

Well, finally – finally – we reached the season finale to the arduous, tortuous, never-ending season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. And it was kinda disappointing, no? Maybe cause we already knew what was happening real time.

Things start off with Melissa meeting with Teresa’s her stylist, because she is an over-the-hill wannabe pop star and over-the-hill wannabe pop stars need to look good! Really booby and trampy apparently = good. Melissa’s stylist, or is it Teresa’s stylist, suggests she wrap a scarf around her boobs and wear it as a shirt. Right. Let me get this straight: TWO WOMEN are paying this woman money to make them look like hookers and fighting over who she styles? There is some issue about how Teresa didn’t want her to also style Melissa. Maybe she wanted Melissa to actually look good?

While Terlissa’s stylist is there, Melissa gets a call from Teresa about the family photoshoot they are planning. Melissa claims this is the first family photo shoot she and Joe have been invited to and she is excited to put the past behind her and move forward. Why do I not believe her?
