The thing I love about reality show gossip is that everyone gets to hear exactly what they want to hear. At least, that is certainly how it seems to be for the former Bethenny Ever After couple. Fans of Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy's relationship will be happy to hear that some insiders think they could go the route of NeNe and Gregg Leakes and reconcile. Of course, these sources predict that it will happen right about the time that Bethenny's talk show debuts. Funny how that works, right?
On the flip side, for those of you for whom Bethenny grates on your last nerve, other insiders are claiming that Bethenny has already moved on with a mystery colleague. The scandal! See, it's a win/win when it comes to gossip!
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
You know it's a serious reality star divorce when everyone from lawyers to money mag writers are talking to any and all media outlets. It certainly won't be the last we hear about the divorce proceedings between Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy.
Speaking to Celebuzz, celebrity attorney Raoul Felder gives his take on the Bethenny Ever After star's divorce. Known as the "Duke of Divorce," Raoul is not representing Bethenny, but he understands why she came out of the gate with such strong demands, including primary physical custody of Bryn, child support, and medical expenses. She can always compromise, but if she doesn't ask for certain things right out of the gate, she can't ask for them later. He shares, “There was nothing unusual here as she was claiming everything (in a bid) to protect herself, but things will change as the divorce progresses.”
He adds, “I understand they had a pre-nuptial agreement but Bethenny Frankel is very shrewd and she will not want to run up huge attorney’s fees and court costs in a protracted divorce. She will try and thrash-out an amicable deal and end this marriage in a quick and clean fashion. She was obviously unhappy in her marriage and called time on that and is now moving on the best way she can.”
Days after filing for divorce from Jason Hoppy, the woe-is-me publicity tour begins for Bethenny Frankel. Who didn't see this one coming?! While Jason has remained mum about the details surrounding their separation, the Bethenny Ever After star who claims she's tired of living in the spotlight is disproving her point by beginning a torrent of media appearances.
First up Bethenny's made-for-TV friend and talk show benefactress Ellen! Bethenny sat down with Ellen today where the 42-year-old bawled about marriage not being a fairy tale and fame letting her down. Get your tissues ready. #sarcasm!
A weepy Bethenny announced that she feels like a failure for lasting a paltry three-years in her marriage. "I feel like a bit of a disappointment to all of you and I feel like a failure."
Most disappointing to Bethenny is the unfortunate realization that life is not a fairytale. "I really put it out there. I wanted the fairytale," she revealed.
Bethenny Frankel is using twitter as a medium to communicate with her fans in the wake of her divorce from Jason Hoppy. In lieu of doing interviews, she's letting "sources" and the media make claims that this was a very hard decision for her and that she is in despair over ending her marriage.
One month after announcing her separation, she filed for divorce, and wasted no time in requesting full custody of daughter Bryn, child support, medical and dental insurance, and to be listed as a beneficiary on Jason's life insurance policy.
When the media and the public got wind of her demands the blogs and internet erupted with comments. And apparently Bethenny, who made a business of plastering her life all over the place on Bethenny Ever After, is frustrated by the reactions she's getting.
"I need a little break from unsolicited advice today. Let's all just lighten it up even if just for a few hours," she tweeted hours after the story broke.
Just two weeks after announcing their split, Bethenny pulled the trigger and officially filed for divorce. Today we learned that in those papers, Bethenny is asking for several things from Jason – including child support and life insurance.
According to reports, the former Mrs. Hoppy is asking that Jason pay child support for their daughter Bryn, along with medical, dental, optical, therapeutic, and orthodontic expenses for Bryn AND herself. Bethenny also wants Jason to have a life insurance policy that names her and Bryn as beneficiaries.
Everyone starts a new year with good intentions, right? Even reality stars! While I'm sure they all have a bevy of things they'd like to improve upon (one would hope!) we thought we'd give them a little help in that department. Below are some of the New Year's Resolutions we wish some of our favorite reality stars would make.
Kim Kardashian: 'Please let my mom leave me alone – I resolve to try and say no to her and stop putting all my embarrassing and indecent moments on TV. I really don't want to have to pull a baby out of my vagina on Keeping Up With The Kardashians like Kourtney did. Does being pregnant mean my child has already sold its soul to E!? I hope not. And I resolve to let being pregnant get more media coverage than that icky divorce. Hopefully my next TV wedding will be less of a mess.'
We really, really hope ol' Kimmie Kakes embraces the notion of privacy. Especially less nudie pics on Twitter and less revealing clothing. We've already seen it all, anyway. #sextape #playboy
