Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Andy Cohen’seternal love for Real Housewives of New York’s prodigal daughter, Bethenny Frankel, is well known. What has come under scrutiny of late, though, is just how much his affinity for the Skinnygirl mogul may influence how she appears – or how she wants to appear – on RHONY. According to Page Six, some RHONY castmates have been complaining that Bethenny may have “editorial approval” over episodes before they air, an allegation which Andy denies.
At the recent W Hotels Turn It Up for Change party, Andy told Page Six that Bethenny truly has “no warning” before episodes air, even when she looks “like a beast.” When asked directly what kind of “heads up” Bethenny may get before episodes are released, Andy answered, “She has none,” adding, “As a matter of fact, she gets the episode when everyone else does.” To hammer the point home, Andy further explained, “We send the ‘Housewives’ the episodes the week before. She has absolutely no say.”

BethennyFrankel turned the tables on Andy Cohen for a special segment of Watch What Happens Live. He dished on casting mistakes he’s made, which franchise has the most behind-the-scenes drama, whose fans he worries about burning down his house, and more.
Bethenny asked Andy, thinking back to the first season of Real Housewives of Orange County, did he think it would be as big as it is today. He said the possibility hit him in season two when Matt and Jeana Keough‘s marriage fell apart. “I was like, this is like a soap opera. Like, I care about Jeana, and things are not going well for her.”
On reality TV being blamed for the demise of so many marriages, Andy shared, “I think it has accelerated marriages that weren’t working. I’ve talked to Tamra [Judge] about this. I’ve talked to Vicki [Gunvalson] about this. They were in a relationship that wasn’t working. They saw it replayed on TV, and were like, ‘Wow, this is really bad.’ They had a chorus of people saying ‘dump him, dump him’ and they actually had the balls to do it.”
We have another roundup of reality star sightings to kick off your holiday weekend. Kyle Richards, Kris Jenner and Faye Resnick enjoyed a couples night out together, grabbing dinner at Craig’s in West Hollywood with their significant others. Is it just me that saw that floor and wanted to play some old school Q-Bert?
Even though Bethenny Frankel basically told Sonja Morgan her life is a disastrous mess and she’s living in a delusional fantasy world, Bethenny insists the two are in a “good spot” and still friends.
“I think I was being supportive,” the Real Housewives Of New York star says,of her sit-down with Sonja in Atlantic City – which is the first of many! “It’s compassion,” Bethenny elaborated. “There’s a whole trajectory with Sonja and I this season,” said Bethenny.
As for the dramatic, heartbreaking episode, Bethenny feels it was a great example of RHONY at its finest.”I thought the show, overall, was really funny. People thought it was one of the best episodes,” she quipped. I kinda agree.
First of all Andy says he “loved” that all the ladies decided together to wear white to the reunion. “It was not my decision but I loved it,” he declared.
What he does not love is learning that Kenya called him “Mandy” and an “ass” in a recent tweet. In Andy’s visibly shocked reaction he exclaims, “Did Kenya call me ‘Mandy’ on Twitter?!?!” Yes, she did. “Well… on the one hand it’s offensive, but on the other hand it is ‘MAN-dy.’”
