Kate Gosselin appeared on Bethenny Frankel's talk show today. Bethenny asked Kate point blank how she spent her Jon & Kate Plus 8 earnings. Kate turned the conversation around – poor little divorced me – and said a few things about co-parenting that Bethenny really needs to apply to her own life.
First – the money! Where did it all go? Bethenny pointed out that Kate made a ton of money during Jon & Kate Plus 8's wildly successful run. Typical Kate hemmed and hawed a bit but ultimately agreed and said it was a blessing.
Bethenny continued, "You said publicly you kind of need to support your kids. You need money to support your kids. So I think people want to know where the money went, where the money is."
Kate answered, "The majority of what we made, I personally took and put into a college fund for the kids because they will go to college. So I use coupons and we don't wear top brands. Those things, to me, really aren't overly important, but college, school, and the house where they live is important.
That Heather Dubrow from Real Housewives of Orange County is one busy, busy, busy little bee! Don't believe me? Fear not, she's going to tell you herself! The reality star, mom, wife (I know it's in the show title, but we all know that actual "wives" on these franchises are few and far between!), and former Malibu Country actress (sorry, I couldn't resist!) has a lot on her plate these days.
Even though her season has finished filming, Heather is trying to juggle car pools, hosting gigs, and acting roles…not to mention she and husband Terry are building a new home. It's a rough life for those Dubrows!
Bethenny quizzed Kathy about her motivation behind joining the show.
Bethenny: How are you finding a balance with the fact that your entire family is on television and it turned out so differently. You probably thought it was a fun thing when you started and now you are in this web.
Kathy: Well that's what is hard because you don't know what's going to come up and you don't know what everybody else is thinking but at the end of the day my husband and I decided that we are going to do this. Our foundation has always been solid and what happens in our home and behind our doors when we close the door that is going to remain solid. Everything else, is secondary.
Bethenny vented, "Bloggers who have no idea what they are talking about are writing that I have a new boyfriend named Botox, who has really botched me up. Folks I am here every day, 57th and 11th where the pink awning is, as long as they'll let me do a show I'm here, if you want to come here, you can ask."
Quick question…will Bethenny Frankel ever learn? Sometimes I want to think she wants to do the right thing. Heck, sometimes I even think she's more vulnerable than I'd ever want to give her credit for being. Of course, then she goes and does something like this.
It seems that Bethennyis more concerned with standing her ground (which, in real terms, means getting her way), and now she andJason Hoppy are headed to court. So much for that amicable divorce she kept touting, right? Unable to reach an agreement (read: Bethenny wouldn't budge on her extreme demands), sources are reporting that the once semi-happy couple's divorce is becoming more and more contentious…if that was even possible!
According to Radar Online, Bethenny and Jason are likely headed to trial. An insider shares that the pair went before a judge last Friday in New York, revealing, "Bethenny is still seeking sole physical custody of Bryn, whereas Jason wants joint custody. The judge indicated it would be in Bethenny’s best interests if she were to sign off on an agreement, instead of rolling the dice at trial. She didn’t deal.”
With less than one week until the official premiere of her new talk show 'bethenny', former reality star Bethenny Frankel is sharing some behind-the-scenes fun as she preps for her new project!
Bethenny has been Tweeting her excitement over the preparations. She shared this weekend, "It's #LaborDay weekend and my show is definitely in labor. The due date is September 9th! Somebody remind me to breathe. I just shopped for my first day outfit! I am so excited!"
I've been watching her promo video clips and freely confess that I've got it scheduled in my DVR and am looking forward to checking it out. Love her or hate her, she's a natural and this may just be "her thing". I'll give it a week and decide whether to keep it in my DVR schedule or not. I wonder if Jill Zarin is hoping for a guest appearance?

Bethenny Frankel made the most of her time in Miami this week. Yesterday Bethenny hit up the beach in her teeny red bikini and did some filming for her upcoming talk show premiere.
Bethenny was at the beach and giving away free trips! She Tweeted, "Calling all my girls! I have a free trip to ny & tix to my show!!!! Come find me at the beach!"
Earlier in the day she was signing copies of her new book "Skinnygirl Solutions". After her whirlwind trip to Miami, Bethenny headed back to NYC to be a guest on Good Morning America and share some tips from her new book. She also proved (sort of) that she does eat carbs by posting a pic of herself grabbing a bagel on the way to the studio.
Page Six is reporting that there is some major discord surrounding the talk show which is helmed by the reality star turned mogul…and Bethenny's attitude is to blame. Sources close to the show tell the site that Bethenny is "very particular and difficult," and it's already turning off some of her employees.
