Last night’s sit down between Bethenny Frankel and Sonja Morgan was hard to watch. It was hard to watch Sonja cry, it was hard to watch Bethenny give it to her straight, but it was needed. I hope Sonja appreciates that Bethenny is always going to be blunt with her and sometimes give her the reality smack that she needs.
Bethenny reflected on her business journey in her Real Housewives of New Yorkblog this week. “Oh what a tangled web we weave. It was crazy to watch the evolution of my hustle from a CT supermarket to Union Square. The stakes are way higher, but the hustle is the same. Business is tough. I love what I do, and I am 100% invested, and it is my mission to help and inspire female entrepreneurs. This entails being honest about what it takes. Even now I struggle to make things work, and I have drive and determination, and I’m completely committed.”
Is it me or are things on Real Housewives Of New York just straight up mean this season?! If it isn’t raining men in NYC, it’s raining bitches – and everyone is getting drenched!
At least things start out positively. Moving into the fifth floor of Manor Morgan is Luann de Lesseps. The heater may not work but at least there’s a hot plate.
While Luann lounges on a bed still bearing the trappings of 1992 bourgeois stylings, she wonders if her hostess with the mostess loose ends, Sonja Morgan, has told Bethenny Frankel about the Tipsy Girl unveiling. Sonja shrugs off the potential snafu. She ain’t scairt of Bethenny. The well of booze has a deep trough, and Tipsy Girl is but a little drop, all of it likely going down Sonja’s gullet. After all, there was once a Skinny Bitch, then along came a Skinnygirl, and that little low-fat piggy went on reality TV and squealed all the way to the bank.
Lately, I could not tell if my mind was playing tricks on me, but I couldn’t figure out why Bethenny Frankel looked so different to me these days. Every time I watch Real Housewives of New York, I try to figure out what is going on with her face. I thought that maybe it was just the change up with her short hair cut or that she got a new makeup artist or something, but then I started to look back at some old photos. It was obvious that her jaw looks very different than it used to.
Bethenny‘s jaw used to be a lot more defined than it is now. And Bethenny is always talking about how she keeps it real and she’s already copped to getting breast implants, so I am sort of confused by why she didn’t say why her jaw looks so drastically different. Well, she’s finally come clean about the changes.
We have more reality star sightings this morning! Erika Jayne, Dorinda Medley and so many more!
Yolanda Foster was seen grabbing lunch with friends at Cafe Gratitude in Venice Beach. Meanwhile her BFF Erika Jayne was in Miami for a performance.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks attended HISTORY’s “Roots” Atlanta advanced screening at National Center for Civil and Human Rights. And Porsha Williams was all smiles at TV One’s “Rickey Smiley For Real” season 2 premiere at SCADshow.
Dorinda Medley attended the Town & Country Philanthropy Summit at New York Historical Society. Her co-star Bethenny Frankel spent time in Vegas this weekend, rubbing elbows with Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo at the opening of the Beauty & Essex at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
Ramona Singer may be The Apologizer, but Dorinda Medley is the Defender. The Real Housewives of New York star took to her blog after this week’s episode to stick up for John, and Jules. And she had a few choice words for some of her co-stars, though she doesn’t call them out by name. Get your popcorn and Pinot ready because it’s a long one.
Dorinda starts off, “I won’t propose a toast this week, I’ll propose an idea: Let’s all try to be better versions of ourselves — for once. The show so far revolves around two things: Jules and John. Thank God for me, right?! What did they ever do without Dorinda? Oh that’s right…lie, deflect, attack, belittle, accuse… I wasn’t raised that way, and I’m going to go out on a limb and say the others weren’t either, but there’s something about having privilege and opportunity that turns a lady into a vixen, or a vixen into a viper.”
Last season on Real Housewives of New York, pretty much no one believed in Sonja Morgan or gave her the time of day except for Bethenny Frankel. Bethenny is arguably the busiest one in the bunch, but she still managed to make it to some of Sonja’s business meetings and attempt to serve as her mentor. She encouraged Sonja to be realistic while still being kind to her.
It looks like that’s all out the window. Even though Bethenny and Sonja were not in the same room at all during the most recent episode of RHONY, Sonja threw her name around a lot. She kept talking about how she wanted Bethenny to go to her birthday party/business launch and how she wanted Bethenny to be proud of her burgeoning Prosecco business. Well, it turns out that Bethenny is not at all supportive of Sonja’s latest attempt at entrepreneurship.
“They needed that,” the woman remarked calmly as Ramona and Dorinda held each other and cried after their blow-up. This woman needs to be making more appearances on Bravo.
However, we begin with psycho facialists. Sonja Morgan is getting human skin cells spread on her face, since placenta is too expensive to buy on the black market! Sonja needs to hook Yolanda up with Satoko!
