Jill’s new pal and host of Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker, Patti Stanger, took to her twitter page to bash Bethenny on behalf of Jill (Are these ladies in elementary high school?).
“My BFF Jill Zarin is getting the shaft on NYC Housewives bc of a dark haired loser! Why is everyone on Team Bethany (sic)? Any cow can give birth,” Stanger recently posted.
The question is why the hatred for Bethenny? Well, the NYDailyNews believes that Patti’s hostility stems from when Bethenny allegedly snubbed her at the season two premiere party of “Real Housewives” last year. Apparently Patti is still holding a grudge.
“Bethenny was seen as the most popular of the housewives then, and apparently she didn’t feel like she needed to give Patti the time of day,” a source close to the show says. On the other hand, Patti and Jill have become good friends in the recent years.
The second episode of the NYC Housewives titled “Dueling Labor Day Parties” airs tonight and we can expect another big blow up between Ramona and the Countess herself.
Tonight’s episode features the ladies in the Hamptons where it just so happens there are two big labor day parties happening at the same time. LuAnn doesn’t want to go to Ramona‘s party, due to “Countlessgate” — LuAnn confronted Ramona during the last episode about her husband Mario referring to her as being Countless.
This all leads to a big blow up, and we somehow end up with Ramona calling LuAnn a slut, a Countless slut to be politically correct. As expected, things take a turn for the worse from that point on. Most of the other housewives have all made comments at some point about LuAnn openly flirting with other men while she was still married.
Also happening tonight, Bethenny gets invited to dinner by her then boyfriend Jason Hoppy, during which he reveals he is not happy with their current living situation and then tells Bethenny he wants them to move in together. A preview clip of this is below -
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE NEW EPISODE OF THE NYC HOUSEWIVES?
The 39 year-old mom to be recently dished on her upcoming wedding to fianceJason Hoppy. “I find that just looking at dresses, I have Bridezilla moments,” says Bethenny who is currently filming her new reality show – Bethenny’s Getting Married? “You feel like an 8-year-old, trying on things and getting stuck in a dress, and I’m like, ‘Get me the hell out of here!’”
In true Bethenny fashion, she makes it clear she isn’t going to be the typical bride. “I don’t care about stuff -– the dresses and all that. It’s not me,” she says. ”I’m not the shopper, and everyone knows that I don’t like to transact. I don’t like the stores and registering and all that stuff. So I’ve been sort of doing it, but I don’t love that.”
And when it comes to her baby’s sex, Bethenny reveals she is still in the dark about that. “I want to know what I’m having, but my fiancé won’t let me find out. My fans think it is a boy. They say a girl steals your beauty and I don’t look deformed yet,” she says.
When asked what it was like to film while pregnant, she shares, “It was a really crazy season. I don’t know how they could top it. It was like a full moon everyday. Being pregnant and emotional, it was impossible. There are a lot of things turned upside down. Alliances have changed and friendships have had some tests.”
Since posing nude for PETA went rather well, can we be expecting Bethenny in Playboy anytime soon ala costar Kelly Bensimon? “Maybe I’d take pictures with my baby but Playboy, that’s not where I am. I’m 39, it’s like ‘Enough already.’ Playboy would be a terrible decision for me. It has nothing to do with what I’m doing [or] the brand I’m building,” reveals Bethenny.
Tonight is the long awaited and highly anticipated premier night of the Real Housewives of New York City, and the claws are set to come out in this third season opener.
Tonight’s episode will show most of the Housewives ganging up on the newly pregnant Bethenny Frankel. We will also see the widely reported rift between former BFFs, Bethenny, 39, and Jill Zarin. Apparently, things took a turn for the worse between the two when Bethenny told Jill she needed to find a new hobby and stop meddling in her life.
Then it’s Kelly Bensimon’s turn, and she has a big bone to pick with Bethenny after their very volatile relationship last season.
“She’s scary,” snaps Kelly. “I would never cross me because she’d attack me or say something bad. I was like, ‘that does not a friend make.’ It’s weird. That’s not a friend, that’s a foe. She’s got issues. I mean, come on, she ‘invented the margarita,’ says Kelly, taking a dig at Bethenny’s SkinnyGirl margarita franchise.
As we reported yesterday, it seems as the season moves along, it will become a Bethenny, Alex & Ramona team vs the Jill, LuAnn & Kelly team.
The third season premiers tonight at 10 p.m.ET on Bravo.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE SEASON PREMIER?
The NYDailyNews reports Ramona Singer threw a premier party for the upcoming new season last week, but only 3 out of her 7 fellow housewives bothered to show up. Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon and LuAnn de Lesseps were nowhere to be seen while Bethenny Frankel, Alex McCord and Sonja Morgan were in attendance.
According to sources, there is good reason for this. Apparently, “there’s a clear split between the cast, and you can definitely see it by who decided to attend Ramona’s party,” says the source. The insider also added that since LuAnna was planning to throw her very own premier party, she felt she had no reason to attend Ramona’s party.
Despite that, those in attendance still found it a bit “surprising, considering Andy Cohen and a number of other Bravo honchos were all at Ramona’s party. Everyone was expecting her[LuAnn], Jill and Kelly to at least stop by.”
And don’t expect a truce between Bethenny and Kelly anytime soon. In a new interview with LaTimes, Bethenny had the following to say when asked about her infamous altercation with Kelly from last season – “I always thought she was missing a significant portion of her brain. I grew up in a dysfunctional household, and I’m really attuned to crazy people. I think she just triggered me and I went, “Wow, this is what crazy looks like really upfront.” Yikes.
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. The new season is set to premier tomorrow night on Bravo at 11:00 pm.
We are just a week away from what is being described as one of the most explosives seasons of Bravo’s Housewives’ franchise. The Real Housewives of New York City is set to premier March 4th, 10:oo pm, and we already brought you a video preview which shows a lot of drama amongst the ladies.
