Say what you will about Bethenny Frankel, but she knows how to get sh*t done. The Real Housewives Of New York star has sprung into action since the devastation of Hurricane Harvey hit Houston and its surrounding areas, rallying business, volunteers, and donations through her organization, B Strong.
So far, Bethenny’s efforts – largely spread through social media outreach – have recruited two hundred volunteers, $80k in donations, and thousands of supplies for disaster relief to those affected by the tragedy. Bethenny has also pledged, herself, to travel to Houston to aid in distribution of gift cards and organize outreach. Her fundraising efforts are geared toward women and families in crisis.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. For Ramona Singer, season nine of The Real Housewives Of New York was surely the most dramatic of times. Now that she’s had a chance to reflect on the season, the three-part reunion, and viewer feedback, Ramona says she sees it all in a new light. And she opens up about the personal turmoil her divorce from Mario Singer threw her into, which affected her in ways we might not have seen.
Ramona’s latest blog is about as introspective as I’ve ever seen her, which is interesting. Is she feeling humbled by watching herself on TV, or is she in damage control? Either way, she opens up about her feelings on the season and what contributed to her actions. “To say I had a difficult season on RHONY is an understatement,” she begins. “As I watched back over the past few months, seeing myself has given me the opportunity to reflect and face the truth. The bottom line is, I behaved poorly.”
The night starts out with lots of sex. Well, at least talking about it – which these ladies love to do. Tape rolls on the innuendos, accusations, and droll dinner conversation that uncovered more than we want to know about everyone’s sexcapades. Andy wonders if this is the most oversexed or undersexed group he’s ever seen? While some regret their words, like Tinsley, who admitted she went too far in discussing her sex life with ex-husband, Topper, Sonja doesn’t regret a thing. But does Sonja like the back door more than the front door? She opens any door! As long as it’s not Tinsley’s hat delivery guy on the other side of it.
Bravo is bringing back the Real Housewives Awards for the fourth year in a row. This time, the ladies from across the franchise will compete for fans’ votes in various categories within the back-to-school theme.
Fortunately, it seems like this list was compiled with the intention to make sure everyone feels included, which is nice. Unfortunately, it seems like this list was compiled with the intention to make sure everyone feels included, which means that many of the nominations do not make sense. Nevertheless, the fandom will (hopefully) make the right decisions. Either way you slice it, nominating every housewife is a good way to ensure that a lot of them show up when the awards are handed out. So at least that’s good.
Another week, another gallery of the reality TV stars showing off and sharing snapshots on Twitter and Instagram.

Look below for pics of Real Housewives of New York‘s Bethenny Frankel celebrating Cookie’s birthday, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards spending time with family in Utah, Vanderpump Rules stars Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz hanging on the set of WWE, Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Teresa Giudice enjoying the last days of summer, and more.
Get yourselves adjusted and comfortable, because it’s time to rehash the drama from last night’s Real Housewives Of New York Reunion, part two. Bethenny Frankel breaks down over the custody hell she went through this year. Carole Radziwill and Tinsley Mortimer are actually permitted to speak (whoa!), and Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer – well, they continue to be the national treasures they are. And I can’t help wishing these two would totally change, yet not change at all. The same goes for the entire cast, when it comes down to it. Their brand of crazy just…works.
Bethenny Frankel has re-found love again-again. You may think Dennis Shields had gotten his fill of the Skinnygirl and her antics already, but apparently he’s back for a second helping!
Multiple sources confirm that the Real Housewives Of New York star has quietly resumed dating Dennis again. The couple has been cozying-up together in the Hamptons throughout the summer and has been spotted around NYC. Dennis was Bethenny’s date to a recent WWHL appearance, although they kept it on the down-low.
