“I’m definitely going to do the Housewives this season,” Bethenny confirmed to PEOPLE this week. “It’s been great … I love it. I understand we start filming [season 3] in September.”
Bethenny of course could not resist a chance to take a shot at rival, Kelly Bensimon, when asked if Kelly could rehabilitate her image on the new season. “Good luck with that. Am I helping? No.” said Bethenny. Gotta love her pure honesty.
The biggest news of all is Bethenny finally denied being engaged. We reported last week that she referred to her supposed fiance, Jason Hoppy, as her boyfriend. When asked by People, she denied being engaged but reaffirmed that they do plan on getting married one day. “You don’t see any ring,” she said.
Still not sure if it’s a good idea to keep publicly talking about your plan to marry someone who has yet to propose. That didn’t seem to work too well for Kim Kardashian but whatever floats Bethenny’s boat.
Bethenny Frankel made an appearance on Bravo’s new talk show – “Watch What Happens” last night as the call in guest. Bethenny denied rumors of getting her own reality show, as previously reported. When asked if she was leaving The Real Housewives of New York, she answered – “Of course I’m coming back! If you guys invite me back, I’ll be back.”
More importantly, and I’m not sure if anyone else caught this, but Bethenny referred to her supposed fiance, Jason Hoppy, as her boyfriend. When asked about the party planner incident, she said, “As my boyfriend said, the wheels came off.”
Does this mean Bethenny is not engaged after all? or did she just make an error when speaking?
It seems very unlikely that she would mistakenly refer to her fiance as her boyfriend. Come to think of it, Bethenny has never publicly confirmed being engaged. Her rep was the one who told news outlets that Jason and Bethenny would be “definitely getting married.”
So what do we have here? Bethenny is not getting her own reality show as reported, and is likely not engaged as well.
The NYPost is reporting that Bethenny Frankel will be getting her own reality show on Bravo. The big shocker however is they are also reporting this means Bethenny will no longer be on The Real Housewives of New York City. Yikes! Will the show still be worth watching without her?
According to the Post, her show will be titled “Skinny & The City.” A source said, “The show will follow her planning her wedding to [fiancé] Jason Hoppy.” Her rep confirmed a while ago that the two would be getting married.
Life & Style also reports Frankel is penning a second book about “romance, money and friends” inspired by her feud a with co-star Kelly Bensimon. Bravo had “no comment.” A picture of Bethenny and Jason below -
The Real Housewives franchise doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. Bravo has picked up a third season for the Real housewives of New York City reality show. The show will premiere in 2010 although production will begin in the fall. Bravo is also casting for additional housewives to join the likes of Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer and Alex McCord.
The Real Housewives of New York’s popularity continues to grow from one season to another. The season finale and reunion special averaged over two million viewers.
And if you can’t get enough of the “Real Housewives” shows then stay tuned for Real Housewives of Atlanta season 2 which will premiere on July 30th.
Everyone’s favorite “housewife” Bethenny Frankel has apparently fallen hard for boyfriend, Jason Hoppy. Bethenny tells People magazine in a new interview this week – “I’m in love.” We can all sigh a collective awwwww.
Bethenny continues, “I’m pretty much certain I’m going to spend the rest of my life with him … I’m really happy.”
The big surprise about this relationship is that they have been dating for 8 months according to Bethenny. She says she did not want to go public with the relationship until she was certain it was the “real deal.”
And how did they meet? “I was getting my picture taken and I had a scowl on my face. He came up and said, ‘Are you going to get that stick out of your a–?’” Frankel recalls. “ Jill [Zarin] loves him. For six months we called him ‘Tenjune.’ He does pharmaceutical sales and real estate. He’s very, very athletic, [and] all-American.”
Bethenny goes on to say Jason will be appearing on the new season of The Real Housewives of New York City, “He’ll be on the show. He’s totally cool about it, but not gung ho. He’s not Speidi,” Frankel said. “He’s excited for me and everything that’s happening for me.”
Good to see NBC being an equal opportunist by adding 2 of the most liked housewives, along with 2 of the most hated in the form of 40 year old mean girl Tamra Barney, and alleged former coke whore Danielle Staub.
During the last episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice was the center of attention. The mom of three who is expecting her 4th child in September decided to undergo a breast augmentation on the show after talking about her “bubbie” issues all season. Above is a picture of a very pregnant Teresa with her new boobies.
In a recent interview, a cheerful Giudice explained why she got plastic surgery, and her issues with costar Danielle Staub.
Below are excerpts from the interview-
Why did you want to have the surgery?
Did you see the shot with the leopard bathing suit? Does that answer your question? I was confident before. The only problem I had was in bathing suits. I always had to get them padded. I liked [my breasts] being little, but after I breastfed [my three daughters], they completely went away. It’s not like I wanted big boobs or anything. I wanted to be a little bit fuller. I just did it for myself.
On last week’s show you had some strong opinions about Danielle’s past. How did you find out about the book and what were your concerns?
Dina and Caroline were the ones who let me know — and I was so freaked out about it. Like so freaked out because I have little ones. Mostly, I was freaking out because of the kidnapping [allegations]. I was like, “Who is this girl? She’s been around my kids.” I swear I was so freaked out. I didn’t even want to talk to her after that.
When you got the call from Steve saying he was bringing another woman to your house did you ever think of telling Danielle?
I wasn’t going to tell her because I wasn’t going to get involved. Steve was my husband’s friend. Not that I feel loyal to him or anything. I’d just rather stay out of it. Danielle’s a big girl; she can handle herself. But just one comment I’ve got to make: Getting involved with a 26-year-old and she’s 47, I mean, I think says it all.
Are you happy with how you’ve been portrayed on the show?
There’s little things here and there which, of course, I have no control over.
Care to be more specific?
About the [scene where I spent lots of] cash. That was just a small deposit. That was not $120,000 [in cash]. I don’t want people thinking I have that kind of cash. That’s ridiculous and that’s not safe anyway. And of course with the whole stage mom thing. But over time, I think people will see that it’s what Gia wants to do, and I’m just being the supportive mom. I think [Real Housewives of New York City star] Bethenny [Frankel] wrote I was living [vicariously] through Gia. I’m so not doing that — and Bethenny, mind your business. Stay on this side of the bridge!
