The third season of the Real Housewives of New York City finished taping late last year, but yet the feud rages on for most of the NYC housewives.

The NYDailyNews reports Ramona Singer threw a premier party for the upcoming new season last week, but only 3 out of her 7 fellow housewives bothered to show up.  Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon and LuAnn de Lesseps were nowhere to be seen while Bethenny Frankel, Alex McCord and Sonja Morgan were in attendance.

According to sources, there is good reason for this.  Apparently, “there’s a clear split between the cast, and you can definitely see it by who decided to attend Ramona’s party,” says the source.  The insider also added that since LuAnna was planning to throw her very own premier party, she felt she had no reason to attend Ramona’s party.

Despite that, those in attendance still found it a bit “surprising, considering Andy Cohen and a number of other Bravo honchos were all at Ramona’s party. Everyone was expecting her[LuAnn], Jill and Kelly to at least stop by.”

And don’t expect a truce between Bethenny and Kelly anytime soon. In a new interview with LaTimes, Bethenny had the following to say when asked about her infamous altercation with Kelly from last season – “I always thought she was missing a significant portion of her brain. I grew up in a dysfunctional household, and I’m really attuned to crazy people. I think she just triggered me and I went, “Wow, this is what crazy looks like really upfront.” Yikes.

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. The new season is set to premier tomorrow night on Bravo at 11:00 pm.

So is she or isn’t she? Just days after Kim Zolciak went on a radio show to proclaim she was back with her married “fiance,” Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar, UsWeekly printed an article claiming the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is a lesbian and will come out during the 3rd season of her show.

According to their source, “Tracy broke up with her longtime girlfriend to be with Kim. Since they’ve been together, Tracy lost a lot of weight and got really skinny for Kim. They seem to be beyond happy with each other.”

Their other source for the story? Well it was none other than Simon van Kempen (who is married to Alex McCord) of the Real Housewives of NYC. “The rumor is that Kim Zolciak will come out this season,” he told Us at the Season 3 screening party in NYC.

In Simon’s defense, he did use the word “rumor.” However, Kim didn’t take too well to this story or Simon giving his input. She took to her twitter page and posted the following just hours after UsWeekly ran the story, “WOW…who the hell is Simon van Kempen? Talking abt me in US weekly. Give me a break…Get ur facts straights, Never met that man in my life.”

But what Kim, 31, didn’t do is deny the story. In fact, she has yet to publicly deny dating DJ Tracy Young, or even deny being a lesbian. Another report from entertainment reporter, Marc Malkin of E! News, also claims Kim is indeed dating DJ Tracy. According to Marc, his sources also confirm to him that Kim has been dating Tracy for 3 months.

Some people who are not buying Kim’s new relationship are apparently some Bravo execs who feel Kim decided to “become gay” because having a juicy storyline could help her in negotiations. As we reported, Kim is still negotating with Bravo for more money to do the 3rd season.

Ready or not, here they come! Some of our favorite and not so favorite Bravo Housewives are set to bring their drama onto the popular game show – “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

Eighteen of the Housewives are set to appear on the show February 22 – 26 as they team up with real-life housewives for a special presentation of “The Real Housewives of Millionaire.” Housewives from all four casts – New York, New Jersey, Atlanta and Orange County – will participate.

Andy Cohen, Executive Producer of the Housewives’ franchise will sit in via Skype as the expert for the “Ask The Expert” lifeline all week. Not to worry though as the Bravo housewives will not be without any help.  They will actually be paired in the hot seat with the contestant housewives to help them answer the trivia questions.

The Housewives that will be teaming up with contestants include New Jersey cast members Caroline, Dina, Jaqueline and Teresa; New York cast members Kelly, LuAnn, Ramona, Alex and Jill; and Atlanta housewife, Kandi. Celebrity questions will then be presented to the contestants by Orange County Housewives Vicki, Lynne, Jeana, Gretchen and Tamra, as well as Danielle from the New Jersey cast and Lisa and Sheree from Atlanta.

Jill Zarin of the NY Housewives talked about her excitement in doing the show – “I’m really excited to be here. I bet I’m the only one who really watches the show on a regular basis. I watch it every day. I TiVo it and watch it at night. I do. And then when I got asked to be on the show, I died. It was like dying and going to heaven.”

Dina Manzo of NJ was nervous and hoped to get a lot of pop culture questions.  “I’ve been too busy to get ready, that’s why I’m so afraid. I could redecorate the whole set with my eyes shut, but I’m scared to answer these questions. I just hope she has a good sense of humor, my partner,” said Dina.

Simon-van-Kempen-and-Alex-McCord

The New York Post is reporting that the biggest posers to ever hit reality television, Alex McCord and hubby Simon Van Kempen, might be getting the boot from their Bravo show – The Real Housewives of New York City.

According to the Post, the wife & hubby duo are not going to be asked back for a season four. Season Three, which is set to premier March 4, just wrapped up filming. They will be appearing on the 3rd season.

So why are Simon & Alex not being asked back? According to a source, “There are a ton of reasons they aren’t being asked back.”

The first being, “Viewers don’t have a positive reaction to them, so they’re easily replaceable at this point,” says the source. However, a Bravo rep insists that “no details have been released about next season” and Simon himself insists, “We have not had any discussions regarding a fourth season.”

“Also, they don’t really fit in with the other wives,” continues the source. “All of the other women’s story lines have interwoven, yet Alex and Simon have kept theirs separate. It isn’t nearly as interesting as the other Housewives’.”

And it doesn’t end there. According to the insider, there are even more reasons. Apparently Simon threw a “hissy fit” because he’s not being paid as much as the other cast members. “Simon wants to be an equal on the show, but that doesn’t really make any sense to Bravo,” the source says. “After all, he’s not a ‘Real Housewife,’ now is he?”

The Post also says the other ladies on the show including Bethenny Frankel, Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer, and Kelly Bensimon would like to see them go. “In the upcoming season, Alex picks a lot of fights, and it looks like it’s an attempt to keep her story line relevant,” the insider says. “But it ended up seeming inauthentic.”

So far no word yet on who will replace Alex & Simon, if they do end up leaving the show.

TELL US – DO YOU WANT TO SEE ALEX & SIMON LEAVE THE SHOW?

New Yorkers may finally get a break from the city’s most overexposed “House” husband: We hear that Simon van Kempen and his missus, Alex McCord, aren’t being asked back for Season Four of “The Real Housewives of New York City.”

Rumors of an impending exit for the Brooklynites began swirling just as filming wrapped on Season Three, which begins March 4. Says an insider, “There are a ton of reasons they aren’t being asked back.”

So where do we begin?

“Viewers don’t have a positive reaction to them, so they’re easily replaceable at this point,” the source dishes, although a rep for Bravo insists that “no details have been released about next season” and van Kempen himself says, “We have not had any discussions regarding a fourth season.”

“Also, they don’t really fit in with the other wives,” continues the insider. “All of the other women’s story lines have interwoven, yet Alex and Simon have kept theirs separate. It isn’t nearly as interesting as the other Housewives’.”

Our well-placed snitch says that’s not all: Simon apparently threw a “hissy fit” when he wasn’t paid as well as the other cast members.

“Simon wants to be an equal on the show, but that doesn’t really make any sense to Bravo,” the source says. “After all, he’s not a ‘Real Housewife,’ now is he?”

He’s most certainly not, but his better half is – even though she’s not exactly a popular presence. In fact, our source says the other ladies on the show – Bethenny Frankel, Jill Zarin, LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer and Kelly Bensimon – would be more than happy to see Alex go.

“In the upcoming season, Alex picks a lot of fights, and it looks like it’s an attempt to keep her story line relevant,” the insider says. “But it ended up seeming inauthentic.”

So who could replace the husband-and-wife duo? Event planner Jennifer Gilbert and ex-wife of a JP Morgan heir Sonja Morgan, who were announced last fall as the newest Housewives.

“It’s been known that one was meant to replace Bethenny, who’s getting her own show, but until now no one knew who the other housewife to go would be,” says our insider. “Now it looks like it’s Alex.”

Is Bethenny Frankel the new Star Jones? According to the NYDailyNews, the Real Housewives of NYC star is gearing up to have a huge wedding with one little catch, she doesn’t want to pay a dime!

Bethenny, who has received her own Bravo spinoff show titled “Bethenny’s Getting Married?” has been talking to vendors all over New York about getting them to ‘sponsor’ her wedding,” a well-placed source says of Bethenny’s upcoming nuptials to fiance Jason Hoppy.

“She wants everything and anything, and she isn’t shy about the fact that the cameras will be rolling during the event.” The source reveals that Bethenny has attempted to get everything, from her dress to the venue to a planner, for absolutely free.

It however seems Bethenny isn’t having much luck unlike the former “View” host Star Jones, who notoriously got vendors to fund her lavish wedding back in 2004. The vendors aren’t as eager to give Bethenny free items for product placement on her upcoming show as the show has yet to air. “The feedback has been that it’s just too much to ask for when there’s no payment involved – especially when one episode of a show hasn’t even aired yet,” says the insider.

The source insists Bethenny is refusing to take no for an answer and will keep trying to get free vendors. Another drama brewing is which of her housewives costars will be attending her wedding. Though Bethenny has invited Jill Zarin, LuAnn de Lesseps, Alex McCord, Ramona Singer and even Kelly Bensimon. There are rumors Jill might not attend as the two have drifted apart in the recent months.

One person who will be in attendance is Ramona as the tells the mag, “I’m definitely going to the wedding. Bethenny said, ‘I want you there,’ and I told her, ‘I support you in everything you do.”

Bethenny is however denying she was shopping around for sponsors. “If I had the time to find sponsors for my wedding I deserve 2 free weddings and a trip to Fiji” she insists.

Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon

It seems hell might have frozen over as the NYDailyNews is reporting that Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon have become fast BFFs.

The stars of the Real Housewives of New York City have reportedly gotten closer especially since Jill’s falling out with Bethenny Frankel over the summer.  “Now that Bethenny is out of the picture, Jill is definitely on team Kelly,” one source insists.

The NYDailyNews also states that Kelly is determined to change her image, as she was not happy with her portrayal on the show’s previous season. “She was mortified when that show aired last year,” a source close to the former model dishes. “She is really trying to look better in front of the cameras this season.”

So what is Kelly doing to improve her image? Well for starters, she showed on time to the Halloween bash she hosted in N.Y.C. on Saturday night. She even gave up her VIP table to hang out in the crowd. “She was dancing and saying hi to everyone,” another partygoer said. “A lot of people were kind of shocked at how nice she was being.”

Also in attendance of her Halloween bash was Jill.  It is also said that Bethenny has become close friends with Ramona Singer, and Alex McCord.  This should all make for a very interesting third season.
