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.

Besides getting her coochie-coo checked out by a plastic surgeon this week,Jules Wainstein didn’t play a large role on The Real Housewives of New York. So…she’s decided to talk more about LAST week’s episode! In her blog, Jules reiterates her disdain for mean girls, namely Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill. (I may be numbed by watching WAY too much reality TV, but if Jules thinks what she’s experienced is truly mean girl behavior from her cast mates….well, strap in and get a helmet, girlfriend!)
Jules begins, “It takes a lot to get me angry. I always go into situations with an open heart and mind and give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but there is only so much negative energy I can stand until even I get defensive and lash out. I believe that people should take responsibility for the energy they bring into the room, and recognize that this energy shapes and affects our interactions with others.”
They were all just completely shocked by Lu channeling some Drake lyrics and going from “zero to one hundred real quick” with the super sudden engagement. No one knew how to react to her bragging about how she has a new apartment with a terrace now since it is so hard to get past things moving so quickly – not because anyone is jealous. And in a not-so-shocking turn of events Bethenny Frankel gave her two cents on the weird love triangle with Luann’s fiancee Tom D’Agostino, Ramona Singer, and Sonja Morgan.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of New York, the woes of thy vagina continued. Also Luann de Lesseps wonders why these bitches won’t be happy that she’s madly in love! It seems Luann answered her own question there, and the operative word is “bitches” – those bitches can’t be happy for her, because they’re bitches. OK, OK… that’s not entirely true, and more on this later… I know you cannot wait for my rambling musings on the many contrary behaviors of Housewives.
But first, Bethenny Frankel has taken a break from randomly bleeding all over Manhattan to launch Skinnygirl Chocolate. She decides to “go bold” by wearing a bright red wig, which considering what’s going on south of Bethenny’s equator, I dunno… maybe a little too close for comfort? Or maybe Bethenny wanted the drapes to match the curtains?
I was wondering what happened to former Real Housewives of New York cast member Alex McCord. It seems like she just disappeared once she left the show and moved to Australia with her husband Simon van Kempen. This is pretty rare since most of the former Housewives do whatever they can to be in the media spotlight.
Well, Alex came out of the woodwork recently and she did so in a major way when she called out most of her former cast mates.
Bethenny Frankel and Sonja Morgan still haven’t made up after their Tipsy Girl/Skinnygirl fallout on Real Housewives of New York. Bethenny wants to be clear that her issues with Sonja are not over the use of the word “girl.” She took to her SiriusXM radio show (B Real With Bethenny) last week to expand a little on her reasons for being annoyed and irritated with anyone (mostly Sonja and Jules) who fails to “own it.”
Bethenny started out explaining how difficult it is to launch a successful alcohol business, “I have so many categories and so many businesses, I wasn’t worried that it was competing with my brand. I know how difficult it is. Skinnygirl was the first low-calorie cocktail in history, so just coming up with a wine or like Ramona has her pinot grigio and she experiences the challenges. It’s really, really hard to just come in with one sku of something and make money when it’s just another wine or something. Especially when we’ve seen Sonja with so many different kind of fake businesses.”
In the least mean way possible, I just don’t feel like Jules Wainstein is a fit for the reality TV life. It’s not that I dislike her when I watch Real Housewives of New York, but she just doesn’t really resonate with me. She does not really interact with any of the ladies on the show and whenever she does, she doesn’t say much to their face and then just complains about them in interviews or to Dorinda Medley.
Clearly, she is someone who avoids conflict, but that isn’t the best way to be if you want to be a reality star- or just a person in general. She sets no boundaries with these women, yet she complains every single time that she interacts with them. It makes no sense, but both she and Dorinda just think that she is getting bullied by the other Housewives like Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel.
