As long as we’ve known Bethenny Frankel, she’s had long locks.  But the Real Housewives of New York star is ready to change things up!  Bethenny took to Twitter this afternoon to show off her fresh new look!   Bethenny chopped her hair, colored it and it looks like she even gave it a little kick of red/auburn this time around.   She captioned the pic, “Go Shawty! #TheBisBack.”

Celebrity Sightings in New York - May 18, 2015

Making herself comfortable in the den of shrews on this season’s Real Housewives of New York, Dorinda Medley weighs in on All Things Confrontation in her Bravo blog this week. Claiming to feel more part of the group lately, Dorinda cites the ladies’ Atlantic City trip as the catalyst for girl bonding. “I’m starting to feel ‘familiar’ around them, if that makes any sense,” says Dorinda. Yes. Familiarity usually ensues after seeing your castmate’s snatch on the dance floor, then taking care of her drunkety-drunken carcass afterward. She adds, “The sheen of being a ‘NY Housewife’ isn’t entirely there anymore, because I’m one of them, you know? During and after the Atlantic City trip, I started to feel more comfortable, more at ease, and more like ‘one of the girls.’ Considering how they carry on sometimes, I’m not quite sure if that is a positive or a negative just yet. Maybe a little of both?”

Moving on to Ramona Singer’s birthday bash, Dorinda points out thatRamona is great about having the never-ending birthday that never ends (redundancy intended),” adding, “In reality, her birthday is November 18, but the celebrations start shortly after Halloween and continue throughout the month of November, Thanksgiving be damned. It’s like Ramona Heritage Month. Our next stop on the birthday train was at Fishtail with ALL of her friends. And I mean ALL of them.” As one of the Upper East Side elite, Dorinda gives us her take on Ramona’s 30 closest friends: “These girls run the Upper East Side with an iron fist. They basically buy out every season at Bergdorf’s before it makes it to the floor. They’re a fun crowd—colorful characters—and Bethenny was right: It’s like the Cantina’s greatest hits from Star Wars. Of course, they’re all jockeying to be Princess Leia, though c’mon, Ramona’s the birthday girl. We know she’s the princess in our midst. After all, it is November…”

Bethenny confronts her past in Miami

Last night on Real Housewives Of New York some Housewives celebrated moving forward while other Housewives trudged back through the treacherous waters of their murky pasts. Tru-Renewal vs. Tru-Regression, y’all!

It’s Ramona Singer‘s birthday – you may think that this is just a day where Ramona gets a cake and an extra glass of wine. But oh no – it’s a sacred celebration – a week-long festivus of Turtle Timing which culminates with a fatuous lunch of wine spritzers, steamed veggies, and timid licks of icing from the tip of a knife. The ladies of the UES trek to their mecca, bestowing gifts of wine and Gucci (or hoochie – which is what Sonja Morgan brought), to place at the feet of their goddess Turtlephenia: Ramona of The Pinot, who is bedecked in gold like a shimmering bottle of pinot.

Bethenny Frankel

Thanks to court documents stemming from the nightmare known as Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy‘s divorce, we have been given an inside look at the Real Housewives of New York star’s finances.

According to the documents, Bethenny had a net worth of $22 MILLION, with assets valued at nearly $612,000, when she and Jason signed their prenup in 2010. And this was before Bethenny sold Skinnygirl for a reported $100 million. At prenup time, Jason was reportedly worth $475,000.

Two years later, Bethenny‘s gross annual salary was listed as $4,011,726 on her W2 forms. At that time, Bethenny and Jason each had their own checking and savings accounts, a joint checking account, a joint brokerage account, and a 529 college savings account for their daughter Bryn

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.

Sonja Morgan is full of excuses

If you want to take a trip down a rambling rabbit hole of nonsensical hootenanny, than read Sonja Morgan‘s blog. Luckily I am here to do the dirty work for you. In the Tolstoyian length (for Bravo) diatribe about the Real Housewives Of New York trip to Atlantic City, her issues with alcohol and Heather Thomson, Sonja displaces blame, sheds light on how she promotes people, and raves about her fabulous lifestyle in Gstaad – where her smoky eye reigns supreme. Supreme disillusioned. 

This is the delusional song that doesn’t end… 

“Girls may want to have fun, but I guess Housewives just want to have drama,” Sonja begins. She goes on to “address” the situation that happened outside her home when she had two angry housewives and one shell-shocked Dorinda Medley hovering against the cold outside her vestibule while she explained to her interns the different uses for panties (rain water catchment if ever strange in the Alps with nothing but a smokey eye to keep you warm!).

Bravo Upfronts Kyle and NeNe

A lot of E! and Bravo reality TV stars came to the NBC Upfronts this week.

We already shared pictures of the reality stars out and about in New York City and upon arrival at the Upfronts. But the real fun comes after they’ve had a few drinks and start to mingle, and I love to “read the room” once those pics start to pop up on social media. I like to guess who seems genuinely well liked (Jeff Lewis, Jenni Pulos, Shannon Beador), who wants us to believe s/he is best friends with everyone in the room (NeNe Leakes and Reza Farahan), who seems a little standoffish (Kristen Taekman, Asa Soltan Rahmati, Bethenny Frankel), and who doesn’t show up in any after party photos (Kenya Moore).

That’s just my “read” based solely on the pics shared. Check them out below.
