Bethenny Frankel

Following ten weeks of electrifying performances and shocking outcomes, tonight marks the finale of Dancing With The Stars season 11.

The finale begins tonight at 8/7c on ABC and the finalists actress Jennifer Grey, actor Kyle Massey and teen activist Bristol Palin will dance two dances tonight, and then two more tomorrow before the winner is ultimately announced. The favorite going into tonight seems to be Jennifer but with the combination of viewers votes and judges scores, the mirror ball trophy is completely up for grabs!

Immediately following DWTS, ABC’s new show Skating With The Stars will premiere at 9.11/8.11c time. ABC is hoping to continue the winning DWTS formula by having “celebrities” skate on wheels.

The six celebrities for the premiere season include reality star Bethenny Frankel, Disney Channel star Brandon Mychal Smith, skier Jonny Moseley, “All My Children” actress Rebecca Budig, actress Sean Young and rocker Vince Neil.

Bravo star Bethenny Frankel is arguably the most popular star on the show, which seems to have all the makings of a disaster with the not so popular cast and pros.

There is also a report stating that DWTS producers are worried about Bristol winning because they feel it will ruin the credibility of the show. Who knew the show had any to begin with.

“This will be a disaster for the show if Bristol wins,” a TV insider tells Popeater. “Any creditability the show had will be over. It will go from being a dancing competition to a popularity competition where whoever has the most rabid fan base will always win no matter how little talent they have.”

A new episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to air tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

On the 5th episode this season titled ‘I Would Never Say That,’ Camille invites the women to New York for the premiere of Kelsey Grammer’s Broadway musical, but things immediately get off to a very rough start when the fight between Camile and Kyle is refueled.

Meanwhile, Adrienne receives some bad news from home and Kyle is still worried about the fallout from her and Camille’s Vegas show down. But in true Beverly Hills style, the women seem to pull themselves together and put the past behind them – that is until they all sit down together for dinner and the claws come out once again.

In other BH news, Kyle Richards, 41, did an interview with the NY Post this week during which she revealed just how she and popular Bravo housewife Bethenny Frankel, 40, go way back. The two first met 20 years ago.

“She was the hostess at a restaurant in Beverly Hills.” Kyle began before hesitating, “She’ll probably kill me for saying this.”

Kyle added, “I was having lunch one day and she plopped down right next to me and said, ‘Do you use Lancôme eye makeup remover?’ Turns out she was dating my ex and the Lancôme was in his apartment. We started laughing and became friends. Then I got her a job with my sister driving Paris and Nicky to school.”

Bethenny seemed to have a good sense of humor about Kyle’s interview as she tweeted to Kyle this week: “YES! @kylerichards18 u have any pics of us?” when asked by a fan if she indeed drove Paris and Nicky Hilton to school.

UPDATE - Making this thread an open post. The preview stories will now be open post stories. Thanks to reader Cat for the excellent suggestion!

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.
