In light of all the confusion about what’s legal, and how exactly Sonja’s brand could possibly be a threat to Skinnygirl, the Real Housewives Of New York star explained about trademarks on Twitter, and Bethenny announced plans to produce her own business show!
Two things I never thought I’d say: First, I am totally digging the insanity occurring on this season’s Real Housewives of New York. Second, Jules Wainstein is growing on me, and dare I say, she makes a lot of sense?!? Crazy, I know. The ladies of Manhattan have always been entertaining to me in a boring sort of way, but the drama Dorinda Medley and her oily beau John are facing with friends Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer is making it some must-watch television.
To me, Jules is like a younger, skinnier (who knew that was possible?) Carole Radziwill. While she may be a bit flighty and clearly lacks a tad bit of self-awareness, Jules is trying to stay above the fray while voicing her opinions. After this week’s episode, Jules is dishing on that terribly awkward dry cleaning soiree, the painfully uncomfortable nanny interview, and Sonja Morgan’s tipsy attempts to pay the bills which caused Bethenny to unleash a ruthless smack down.
Sonja starts off defending that her birthday party was not a product launch. “I did not have press at my birthday party. It wasn’t a business event. It wasn’t a charity or a typical Sonja In the City event with wall-to-wall professional cameras. I sent out no press invites. It was not a launch. It was just personal friends coming together to celebrate with Marco Maranghello and me. Thanks Ramona for not letting Bethenny know that.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Last night’s sit down between Bethenny Frankel and Sonja Morgan was hard to watch. It was hard to watch Sonja cry, it was hard to watch Bethenny give it to her straight, but it was needed. I hope Sonja appreciates that Bethenny is always going to be blunt with her and sometimes give her the reality smack that she needs.
Bethenny reflected on her business journey in her Real Housewives of New Yorkblog this week. “Oh what a tangled web we weave. It was crazy to watch the evolution of my hustle from a CT supermarket to Union Square. The stakes are way higher, but the hustle is the same. Business is tough. I love what I do, and I am 100% invested, and it is my mission to help and inspire female entrepreneurs. This entails being honest about what it takes. Even now I struggle to make things work, and I have drive and determination, and I’m completely committed.”
Is it me or are things on Real Housewives Of New York just straight up mean this season?! If it isn’t raining men in NYC, it’s raining bitches – and everyone is getting drenched!
At least things start out positively. Moving into the fifth floor of Manor Morgan is Luann de Lesseps. The heater may not work but at least there’s a hot plate.
While Luann lounges on a bed still bearing the trappings of 1992 bourgeois stylings, she wonders if her hostess with the mostess loose ends, Sonja Morgan, has told Bethenny Frankel about the Tipsy Girl unveiling. Sonja shrugs off the potential snafu. She ain’t scairt of Bethenny. The well of booze has a deep trough, and Tipsy Girl is but a little drop, all of it likely going down Sonja’s gullet. After all, there was once a Skinny Bitch, then along came a Skinnygirl, and that little low-fat piggy went on reality TV and squealed all the way to the bank.
Lately, I could not tell if my mind was playing tricks on me, but I couldn’t figure out why Bethenny Frankel looked so different to me these days. Every time I watch Real Housewives of New York, I try to figure out what is going on with her face. I thought that maybe it was just the change up with her short hair cut or that she got a new makeup artist or something, but then I started to look back at some old photos. It was obvious that her jaw looks very different than it used to.
Bethenny‘s jaw used to be a lot more defined than it is now. And Bethenny is always talking about how she keeps it real and she’s already copped to getting breast implants, so I am sort of confused by why she didn’t say why her jaw looks so drastically different. Well, she’s finally come clean about the changes.
