Bethenny Frankel

Could this be the Bethenny Frankel factor?

In an odd and unprecedented move, Bravo has decided to axe the Real Housewives of New York City, at least for the time being. With less than 2 weeks before it’s scheduled Feb. 15 premiere date, Bravo announced today that the 4th season of the RHONYC has been pushed back to late Spring.

The show taking it’s place? The all new Real Housewives of Miami, which will be making its debut on Feb. 22. No reason was given for the sudden move to postpone the RHONYC, which was still being heavily promoted on the network as of Tuesday.

The clues might lie within a December report by Popeater which stated Bravo execs became “increasingly concerned” with the way the 4th season was going based on the footage they saw more than halfway through filming. That same report stated the execs wanted Bethenny Frankel to make more appearances on the show.

Bethenny however had no interest in returning to the show with a source close to her saying the thought made her “physically sick.” Another sign of trouble was the fact that the show was still filming as of 2 weeks ago despite its close premiere date.

UPDATE – A new post will be posted within the next hour with photos & bios of the RHMIA cast!

Below are some tweets made by the New York Cast over this story –

SimonvanKempen – #RHoNY Delay is good as we were still filming up until last week & a 2/15 premiere was a very quick turnaround. Gives us a chance to breathe.

mccordale – #RHONY will start in Spring – find out who the #thuginacocktaildress is when the weather’s warm enough to wear one!

UPDATE #2 - Simon just tweeted that Bethenny will not be making any appearances on the 4th season. Previous reports had stated she would be making guest appearances on the show.

With the second season of her Bravo spin-off show set to debut February 28, Bethenny Frankel is in full promotion mode.

In an interview with Redeye, the Bethenny Ever After star reveals she has zero regrets about leaving the Real Housewives of New York City following three seasons.

“I do not not miss being on the ‘Housewives’ at all,” said Bethenny. “It’s more [the] filming. Ten times as hard. Emotionally, nothing could be more difficult than that.”

And in a separate interview with Starpulse, Bethenny was asked if she will be tuning in to the new season of the NYC Housewives. “I will absolutely watch the first episode of RHONYC. I’m definitely curious. Then I’ll decide about what I’ll watch after that,” she answered.

As for the second season of her own show, Bethenny promises it will be “filled with laughter, tears, drama and real reality.” She adds, “This year marriage, motherhood, career, in laws, religion and turning 40. This season is incredible. I gave everything. I’m so proud.”

In other news, UsWeekly is reporting today that Kim Zolciak is not the only nurse on the Bravo network. Apparently, before becoming a world renown Countess, LuAnn de Lesseps had humble beginnings as a nurse!

LuAnn, 45, reveals she worked as a a Licensed Practical Nurse before embarking into a modeling career. “I knew that nurses were always in demand and that I could have a fulfilling career in the health field,” LuAnn said to Forbes. “I think the people skills I acquired as a nurse definitely have helped me be a better entertainer, and I never forget to be grateful for good health.”

The fourth season of the Real Housewives of New York City premieres Feb. 15.

During the TCA 2011 Winter Press Tour going on this week, Bravo announced several premiere dates and series renewals on Thursday.

The biggest announcement however came in the form of the widely talked about 6th season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Bravo confirmed yesterday that it will be returning on Sunday, March 6 at 10pm.

Other big announcements included the return date of Bethenny Frankel’s show Bethenny Ever After (season 2), and the renewals of popular shows The Rachel Zoe Project (season 4), Millionaire Matchmaker (season 5) and Flipping Out (season 5). The recent season finale of Millionaire Matchmaker averaged 2.2 million viewers, the highest ratings ever in the show’s history, so the return is not a surprise.

Additionally, Bravo announced that casting is set to begin on the ninth season of Top Chef and that Top Chef Masters will return later this year for a third season with host Curtis Stone. Other shows renewed include Work of Art: The Next Great Artist. New shows coming this year include Platinum Hit with Kara DioGuardi which will debut this Summer and Rocco’s Dinner Party will air later this year. New series Million Dollar Decorators and Pregnant in Heels are both set to premiere in April.

A list of the shows announced with return dates below -

  • Million Dollar Listing – February 3 at 9 p.m
  • The Real Housewives of New York – February 15 at 10 p.m
  • Real Housewives of Orange County – March 6 at 10pm
  • Bethenny Ever After – February 28 at 10 p.m

Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen will also be moving to new nights, Tuesdays and Sundays, though no official date was announced for the move.

Bethenny Frankel is once again showing off her post baby bikini body!

The Bethenny Getting Married star was photographed in Los Angeles as she did a poolside photo shoot for a Canadian magazine. “You shouldn’t dread working out,” Bethenny, 40, told Redbook in a recent interview.

‘Exercise is like an old friend: You may not be able to see that friend all the time, but you’re not mad when you see them, you’re happy, and you get right back into it,” she added. More bikini photos of Bethenny below.

Moving right along to Phaedra Parks. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star recently showed off her home to Wetpaint in a new photo shoot. Phaedra reveals she has owned the five bedroom and five bathroom Atlanta estate for nine years. “My interior design is transitional,” she says. “My [home's] interior blends traditional and contemporary characteristics that are unified by color and design choices.”

Phaedra reveals she spends most of her time in her kitchen and master suite. “I am definitely a self-proclaimed Southern belle, as you can tell from my home,” says Phaedra, adding that she did not use a designer though she did consult with one. Phaedra also reveals her love for wallpaper, which is rather obvious from looking at her home photos.

It seems Real Housewives of New York City star Kelly Bensimon barely escaped an accident last night while driving through a blizzard.

As you all may know by now, the Northeast region is experiencing a pretty harsh blizzard with many government officials warning citizens to stay off the roads. It seems Kelly did not receive these warnings as she tweeted the following Monday morning – “During the blizzard, we spun out in my Mercedes on the LIE. I was petrified. It was like skating not driving. I need a #safe car.”

While “safe cars” are nice to have, we also believe a functioning brain and the ability to know to stay home during dangerous blizzards would also suffice. Kelly then added that the blizzard started during her drive home. “Most dangerous times to drive are when it starts to snow/ rain. We were driving home as the blizzard started.did a 360. so scarey.” Right.

Moving right along to Kelly’s former costar Bethenny Frankel. Apparently Bethenny lost some weight during her stint on the Skating With The Stars disaster as she is now looking to pack on some pounds.

“Eating enchiladas at “on the border”mex grill at 10am.need to gain weight.I look like magda from “something about mary,” tweeted Bethenny. Looks like Bethenny will have to go against her famous trademark – “Taste everything, eat nothing” for the time being.

It also seems Bethenny will continue to expand her ever growing empire. “I’m developing a healthy cleanse&purification daily system for you.JAN!” tweeted Bethenny when a fan asked about her thoughts on a good 3 day cleanse.

It’s over, it’s finally over! The finale of Skating With The Stars aired last night during which soap star Rebecca Budig was crowned the winner of the ABC show.

“I’m shocked, really I am!,” said Rebecca. “Bethenny and I were talking about it, really…I’m just shocked. I owe all of this to Fred, who is an unbelievable teacher. I’ve said it a hundred times…I owe it all to you.” Fred Palascak was Rebecca’s professional partner.

Rebecca’s win wasn’t exactly a shocker to others as she scored a perfect score of 60—30 for technical, 30 for artistic impression on her final skating dance — the only perfect score of the season.

The runner-up was Bethenny Frankel, who surprised viewers by beating out Jonny Mosley on Monday night to make it into the finals. “Rebecca totally deserves it, she should be a real ice skater,” said Bethenny who also fared well on finale night, earning a total of 51 points for her dance.

Now that the show is officially over following a rather long 5 weeks, it is extremely unlikely the show will be returning for a second season. Why? Well, the ratings were simply a disaster. SWTS averaged about 4 million viewers per episode this season, a far cry from the 20 million viewers per episode it’s counterpart Dancing With The Stars averaged. In fact, the Monday night finale episode only brought in 3.37 million viewers.
