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.

Well, someone found her voice this week on The Real Housewives of New York – even if it was only in her blog! Jules Wainstein unleashed her opinions about Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill in no uncertain terms. Jules’ writing is so sharp in fact, Carole even took to twitter to disparage Jules further and defend herself, re-tweeting one viewer’s pointed question, “I think Jules used a ghostwriter to write this weeks blog. What do u think?” Hmm. You be the judge!
Jules begins by wondering, “‘Why is there always yelling and screaming? Why is someone always storming out of the room in tears? Why is someone always being mocked, insulted, judged or left out? WHAT PLANET ARE WE ON?!’ And then it hit me like a meteor: We are on planet Bethenny. Unlike on planet Earth where friendships are formed and shaped through mutual support and encouragement, on planet Bethenny (which is circled 24/7 by a moon named Carole) it is acceptable for friends to disparage one another behind their backs, to judge, berate and abandon one another on an almost constant basis.” Uh-oh. Shots fired! SHOTS FIRED!
The radio show was aired the day before the RHONY reunion taping. Bethenny is sick, but joked that she can’t imagine what would happen if she called in sick to the reunion. Bethenny sniped “I mean Jules can call in sick because it’s not even like she’s going to be there, but I don’t think I can call in sick tomorrow.” They speculated that they’ll be seated next to each other, but we all know now that wasn’t the case.

Lu starts off with some observations, “While watching this episode, I noticed how when Jules or I open up about what’s going on with our lives, instead of becoming closer to the other ladies, they use it against us. I’m in love with Tom, and I’m happier than I’ve been in years, so why can’t the girls just be glad for me and be sympathetic to Jules’ eating disorder? Dorinda’s been stirring the pot, I think, to keep herself out of the spotlight, but eventually, what goes around comes around.”
Last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of New York left a big question mark over my head. Am I stupid is as stupid does? Because why exactly is Bethenny Frankel so angry atJules Wainstein? Actually, angry isn’t the world, “spooked” is. And what exactly did Bravo NOT show us that is so pertinent to what caused this explosion? Color me three shades of ‘Bethenny lost 10% of her blood’ pale.
Kathy Wakile and husband Rich were in the SiriusXM building this week after doing another interview and Bethenny Frankel invited them in for a segment on her show, B Real With Bethenny. They dished on the bad blood with Teresa Giudice, shared why they choose to stay on Real Housewives of New Jersey and what they think about the realness of Teresa and Melissa Gorga’s sudden bonding.
Bethenny asks if Kathy and Rich continue to do the show for the money or for their business. “It’s a little bit of both,” Kathy says. “A lot of times when we film with our family, our immediate family, it’s fun. It’s being you, there’s no tension.” She continues, “It is a good platform, I’m not going lie. And the money’s not bad either.”
The ladies of Real Housewives Of New York are at war over getting onTom D’Agostino‘s jock (exactly how many millions is he packing?!). Tom happens to be the current fiancé of Luann de Lesseps, once dated Ramona Singer (two or three times, or seven – depending on who you ask), and possibly spent the last decade playing undercover friends with benefits with Sonja Morgan. Disgusted Confused yet? I’m surprised these so-called classy ladies are so comfortable with hippie-hippie notions of free love!
Carole Radziwillhas become a divisive presence on this season’s Real Housewives of New York. An early fan favorite, her star has visibly dimmed since her debut, due in part to the “mean girl” behavior some viewers perceive her displaying with her bestie, Bethenny Frankel. In this week’s (extreeeeeeemely long!) blog, Carole breaks down her relationship with all of the women, claiming she’s fine with all of them. And that she’s really, truly, for-real-this-time over her beef with Luann de Lesseps.
Beginning with Ramona Singer, Carole comments, “Ramona is a good friend. She’s good at being a friend, she’s a good friend to people who are her friends. She’s the kind of friend you want in your reality foxhole when martini glasses start flying. She might not have the best listening skills but her heart is in the right place even if that place is sometimes Oz with monkeys flying around and she’s the Tin Man, with a healthy dose of scarecrow.”
