Even better, Patti Stanger will be moving her company to New York City, where she will be filming the fourth season. The show has proved to be a hit for Bravo as the ratings for the third season, currently airing on Bravo, have been the highest ever for the series.
The fourth season will reportedly feature Patti planning her own wedding to fiance Andy Friedman, all while attempting to run her business in NYC. The first three seasons were filmed in Los Angeles.
Bethenny had said in past interviews that she intended to marry fiance,Jason Hoppy, after giving birth, so why the sudden change? Well the NYPost is reporting Bethenny changed the date of her wedding to fit Bravo’s shooting schedule for her upcoming reality show – ‘Bethenny’s Getting Married?’
The Post reports Bethenny’s wedding will take place at the Four Seasons and the invitations which have been sent out stated the following - “This event will be videotaped and re corded for use in and in connection with the television pro gram tentatively entitled ‘Bethenny’s Get ting Married?’ By attending, you are consenting to the use of your name, voice and likeness in and in connection with ‘Bethenny’s Getting Married?’ and any other production, in any and all media now known or later devised, worldwide, in perpetuity, including in advertisements and promotions.”
Another “source” is however telling The Post Bethenny might have had another reason for pushing up her wedding date. “If she’s a heavily pregnant bride, she’ll get more attention. The other housewives are so grossed out by how fake she is, none will attend the wedding unless Bravo makes them,” says the insider. “She doesn’t even want the other wives at her wedding. She feels she’s a bigger star.”
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 5th season of the Real Housewives of Orange County is officially over, but something tells me we will continue to read and write about these women for months to come.
Tamra Barney did a live chat with Bravo last week during which she was quite candid about her new relationship with Eddie Judge, even referring to him as her “boyfriend” and jokingly calling him a “hot latin lover.” She then added, “I would have to say….I think I’m in love!!!!”
While answering questions from fans, Tamra shared that Eddie is 37 years old, he “just looks hot and young cuz he works out all the time.” Tamra also denied that Eddie was ever a friend of her husband, Simon Barney. “For the record….Eddie Judge was Not a friend of Simon’s like he has reported all over the press,” she claimed.
Bravo made some major announcements this week about what is to come next season. The biggest announcement came in the form of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
There had been numerous rumblings and reports but Bravo has finally confirmed the Beverly Hills Housewives series will be the fifth spin-off based on the original “Real Housewives of Orange County.” No word yet on when the show will premier.
As for the cast, it has been reported Paris and Nicky Hilton’s aunts, Kim and Kyle Richards, have been cast. Kim and Kyle are sisters of Paris’s mom, Kathy Hilton. They are also former child stars. Restaurant owner Lisa Todd, who owns the swanky Villa Blanca restaurant in Beverly Hills has also reportedly been cast as a third housewife.
Real Housewives of Atlanta – Bravo also confirmed the return of the Atlanta housewives, more importantly they confirmed all five housewives will be returning. Kim Zolciak made recent headlines when she revealed she had yet to sign on for season 3. According to a report, the women will each receive $150,000 for their third season.
Real Housewives of D.C. – Notably absent from Bravo’s announcements were the Real Housewives of Washington D.C. which should have finished filming last year. If you recall, there was a big scandal with the White House party crashers, Michaeleand Tareq Salahi, who were part of the cast though Bravo officially said they were simply auditioning them to be on the show. Michaele and her husband had filmed for months with other women, so it would be pretty much impossible for Bravo to air the season without them.
We also reported that Bravo was polling viewers last December to gage their opinion on the two. Guess we will all have to wait a little bit more to see about the DC Housewives.
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 -

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.
