Bethenny Frankel

It seems former Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel has a whole lot more to worry about these days than former BFF Jill Zarin continuously trying to steal her thunder.

In a new interview with RadarOnline, Bethenny’s mother Bernadette Burke, who admits she hasn’t spoken to Bethenny in over a decade, is slamming the Bravo reality star. Bernadette calls Bethenny’s decision to do ABC’s Skating With The Stars a desperate attempt to further her career.

“As soon as I saw that she was going to be on Skating with the Stars I just knew she had an ulterior motive,” said Bernadette to RadarOnline.

It gets even better or worse rather as Bernadette then accused Bethenny of doing the show to “to one up Jill Zarin.” She adds, “I’ve watched only three of the show and in one Jill Zarin was so proud of her skating and even had a party. As soon as I saw Bethenny was skating, I knew she had another reason than just having fun.”

And when it comes to how she thinks her daughter will perform on the show, Bernadette has high hopes for Bethenny as she states she “had so many private ice skating and roller skating lessons. She did it all the time when she was a child.”

This interview doesn’t really come as a major surprise as Bethenny has come out publicly this year stating she had a toxic childhood and that her mom was a bulimic who was always drinking.

If it seems like every time something good happens for Bethenny Frankel, her former BFF Jill Zarin always manages to involve herself in her good fortune, it’s because it usually happens that way.

First came babygate, and now a new controversy brewing involving the announcement of Bethenny on ABC’s new show Skating With The Stars.

According to TVGuide, SWTS‘s casting director Deena Katz is not happy about a few reports that started floating around some blogs following the cast announcement.

What reports would that be might you ask? Well, some reports magically appeared on some blogs claiming that Real Housewives of NYC star Jill passed on doing the show which led to SWTS asking her former co-star Bethenny.

“That’s the part I don’t like,” says Deena. “You weren’t asked, so don’t act like you were.” While Jill’s reps declined to comment on the story, Deena added that Bethenny was cast because “she is it. If you’re going to go with a Housewife Bethenny has transcended all the other housewives. She has her own show [Bethenny Getting Married?]. She is her own person.”

Deena makes it clear that she never asked another housewife, stating “Bethenny is the only one I asked.”

As for Jill, she took some time out of her busy schedule to wish Bethenny the best of luck. “Congrats to @Bethenny for skating with stars. If anyone can do it you can! And happy birthday,” posted Jill the early morning of Nov 3rd. By the way, Bethenny’s birthday is Nov 4th. She turned 40-years-old yesterday.

Bethenny Frankel on Skating With The Stars

ABC announced the cast of its newest show Skating With The Stars last night, and it would not be an understatement to say that Bravo reality star Bethenny Frankel is the most notable and relevant “star” on the show.

While ABC’s hit Dancing With The Stars is able to capture D-list celebrities, Skating With The Stars seemed to focus more on Z listers, as most names on the full cast list will have you saying Who?

Skating alongside Bethenny will be All My Children soap star Rebecca Budig, Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil, Olympic ski-champ Jonny Moseley, actress Sean Young, and Brandon Mychal Smith of Disney’s Sonny With a Chance.

So why is Bravolebrity Bethenny Frankel choosing to do the show? “Most things I do are business decisions, but when I heard about this I thought, ‘I just want to do this.’ It’s so awesome,” says Bethenny adding that “nothing really intimidates me, this intimidates me.”

Bethenny, who turns 40-years-old tomorrow also posted on her twitter that she will be filming SWTS and the second season of her Bravo hit show – Bethenny’s Getting Married – at the same time.

Skating With The Stars will kick off its two-hour live premiere on Monday (November 22) at 9pm ET/PT on ABC.

While many viewers are tuning in to watch the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Bravo, it seems popular Bravolebrity Bethenny Frankel isn’t much of a fan.

“I know Kyle [Richards] from years ago, but I haven’t been watching it,” the busy mom of 5-month-old daughter Bryn told In Touch magazine.

Bethenny, who is busy filming the 2nd season of her own show Bethenny’s Getting Married then added, “It’s so lavish and big. I’m not sure if it’s totally relatable with all that money… I didn’t know people even had that much money!”

Bethenny’s former co-star, Ramona Singer of the Real Housewives of NYC, is also giving her own opinion on Bethenny’s exit from the show.

In an interview with the HollywoodLife, Ramona makes it clear the show goes on with or without Bethenny. “You know what, we don’t really miss [Bethenny],” said Ramona. “We got enough going on, trust me.”

Ramona adds that though Bethenny is busy with her own show, they still speak and text occasionally. “I miss her as a person, but it’s all going to be good [now that Cindy Bishop has joined the cast],” Ramona continued. “It’s going to be our best season ever, it really is!”

And finally, in case you’ve ever wondered why some of the Bravo housewives subject themselves to the pitfalls and humiliation of putting their lives on reality television, you know, other than the fact that most of them are famewhores, the SmokingGun website is about to give you 15,000 reasons.

According to the site, $15,000 is the amount Jill Zarin earned for a speaking appearance. Just last month, the University of South Florida paid the Real Housewives of NYC star 15gs to address some of their college students and sign copies of her books, which according to all reports, has been a total flop.

In addition to the $15,000 fee, Jill also received accommodations in a hotel suite, a $100 per diem, and had her airfare paid for. So folks, the next time you read about a Bravo housewife threatening to leave the show, feel free to roll your eyes, knowing that none of these women will give up on their Bravo ticket to money and fame.

Just days after it was reported that Nene Leakes had joined the new cast of Celebrity Apprentice, a new report is now revealing Nene’s diva behavior on the set of the show.

According to TMZ, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star has already earned a reputation for being the “difficult one” just nine days into filming.

The tipping point came this weekend after an incident over her makeup. Sources tell TMZ that Nene threw a temper tantrum because she hated the way her makeup was done for the show’s opening interviews. She then had the makeup artists start her makeup over again, except she still wasn’t satisfied.

Following two makeovers, Nene decided to take matters into her own hands, doing her makeup by herself.

In other news, the always outspoken NYC Housewife Bethenny Frankel is back at it yet again. Bethenny, who is mostly admired by her fans for her brutal honesty, took a jab at the Atlanta Housewives during her recent appearance on the Rachel Ray Show.

While attempting to make fun of her spotlight-loving dog Cookie, Bethenny said the following: “I think she has an agent. She literally hams it up for the cameras,” Bethenny said of her dog. “She’s like … one of the housewives of Atlanta. Every time the cameras are on she’s, like, doing something.”

Some are now saying Bethenny was comparing the Atlanta ladies to dogs, but knowing Bethenny, she more than likely didn’t mean it in that manner.

The HollywoodLife blog is reporting that Bethenny Frankel, former star of Bravo’s the Real Housewives of New York City, has completely discarded the show that made her a star.

Why? Well for one, Bethenny told the blog she no longer wants anything to do with the show. “I do not want to do any housewife episodes [this season]. Let’s just leave it at that,” said the star of Bethenny’s Getting Married.

And when it comes to former BFF Jill Zarin, Bethenny makes it clear she has moved on from the friendship. “I’m not friends with Jill and we don’t speak to each other,” she said. “I’m so happy right now in my life that I could never ever wish anyone any ill will anyway. That is so 2009 — the show and the argument!”

Several media outlets have reported that Bethenny will make some guest appearances on the NYC Housewives next season due to her contract obligations.

In other NYC news, the Luxist blog is reporting that Ramona Singer, who’s blood type might or might not be Pinot Grigio, is planning to launch her own Pinot Grigio wine!

According to the blog, Ramona has teamed up with Opici Wines for the new business venture. The Ramona Singer Pinot Grigio will hit the shelves next January and will reportedly retail for $14.99.

A photo of Ramona’s wine label is below.

Jill Zarin is at it again!

According to the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine, the Real Housewives of New York City star is angling for her own solo reality show.

The mag reports Jill, 46, is taking meetings “about her own reality show.” An insider states, “She likes the title: Jill Gets a Hobby” (a play on words stemming from Bethenny Frankel’s comments telling her to “get a hobby” last season.

“Jill wants it to focus on her and her sister (lawyer Lisa Wexler whom Jill wrote a book with) but her sister is boring,” says the source. “Jill feels done with Bravo after last season. She thinks Bethenny and Andy Cohen conspired to make Bethenny look like a victim.”

Jill’s rep is however denying the story, telling HollywoodLife that UsWeekly’s story is “totally fabricated.”  For some odd reason, we will choose to believe UsWeekly over Jill.

In other NYC news, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps is angling to appear on broadway according to her rep, who tells RadarOnline LuAnn wants to expand her brand by taking to the stage.

“She’s very adventurous and wants to try something new,” her rep said. “She’s had a few meetings for a couple of potential Broadway projects, including ‘Chicago’ and ‘La Cage Aux Folles.’ It’s something she’s definitely looking into.”

The rep however adds LuAnn cannot officially do anything until she finishes filming the 4th season of the NYC Housewives in Januray.  Umm good luck with that Lulu.

Will she or won’t she? Is the question when it comes to Bethenny Frankel having a second baby.

The Real Housewives of New York City star stated a few months ago that she was likely done having children, but in a new interview with OK magazine, Bethenny, 39, mentions having another baby is still an option with hubby Jason Hoppy.

“Jason wants to have another baby, and I’m not sure, so the breast pump and the newborn clothes are in purgatory for who knows what will happen next,” she says.

She adds, “I’m almost 40, and it’s a decision that we’re talking about. It’s a conversation that needs to be had. I have a five-month-old baby, so I haven’t made that decision yet.”

Bethenny, who shares that 5-month-old Bryn has began rolling over, also states that she is lucky to have Jason as her partner. “Jason does everything,” she says. “He changes diapers, he watches her. We both do everything. I was told before I got into a relationship that if you want to have a child, you need a good partner. You could do it alone – I was prepared to do it alone – but it does help. There’s a lot to do, and you want someone who cares as much as you do about your child, so that’s the deal.”

In other NYC news, just days after Life&Style broke the news that Ramona Singer physically attacked a producer on the Real Housewives of NYC, UsWeekly is also confirming that Ramona did indeed hit the producer, except it wasn’t a slap but rather a punch!

“She was furious and felt like the producers were ganging up on her,” says one insider. “She literally lost her mind.” Ramona, 53, was reportedly shooting with Sonja Morgan and Alex McCord when she lost it.

“No one is really sure what exactly spurred her craziness,” a second source tells US. “But she got herself worked up over filming this scene and one thing led to another, and she punched the producer. Literally.”

With only one month into shooting, the producers are now trying “to mediate the situation so the cast all stays filming.” And somewhere in NYC, Kelly Bensimon is celebrating no longer being the lone crazy pants on the show.
