The shocker however is that the only housewife Bethenny is reported to be getting along with these days is her former nemesis, Kelly Bensimon. According to the report, Bethenny and Kelly made up during the summer.
Bethenny’s biggest feud is with her former BFF Jill Zarin. Her recent comments dissing Jill will certainly not help matters. The rift was more evident between the ex-besties last week during a dinner Jill hosted for 40 friends at Saks Fifth Avenue; Bethenny was the only “Housewife” who hadn’t been invited.
However, Jill isn’t the only NY housewife Bethenny is alienating herself from as she has been gradually cutting ties with Countess Luann De Lesseps, Alex McCord and Ramona Singer since news that she’d get her own show on Bravo broke during the summer.
The NYDailyNews goes on to report the the separation between Bethenny and her co-stars might be an intentional move by Bravo producers, who want her to stand alone in an attempt to pave the way for her own reality show.
I highly doubt this rift between Bethenny and the other housewives is intentional though. Perhaps they just got tired of Bethenny running her mouth and talking negatively about them behind their backs.
The photo on the right is of Big Poppa aka Lee Najjarand his wife, who is ironically also named Kim, and strangely enough looks a lot like Kim Zolciak. Lee is an extremely wealthy real estate developer in Atlanta.
This news is interesting considering the fact that Kim confirmed she and Big Poppa were still together just a week ago during her appearance of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens.” She even went as far as to reveal that she and Big Poppa had been intimate a week earlier.
The habitual liar Atlanta housewife wrote on her twitter page — “There is NO more Big Poppa and Kim FYI. The show was filmed months ago things have changed..So happy.” She has however spent the past few months sporting an “engagement” ring she claimed was a gift from Big Poppa. Not exactly sure how one can be engaged to a still married man, but evidently anything goes in Kim’s world.
Below is a photo of Kim and Big Poppa taken while the duo vacationed –
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak should have taken her own advice, as she is now being sued for being tardy on a payment by music producer, Don Vito.
“Tardy for the Party,” the first single from Kim’s upcoming album, has been removed from iTunes on Monday afternoon because she allegedly has yet to pay the song’s producer for the time she spent in the studio.
“The song was number three on iTunes’ dance chart for the last four days, but since Don Vito owns the copyright to the song and he hasn’t been paid, he requested that the song be taken down off iTunes,” a source told E! News.
Kim’s manager and publicist Jonathan Jaxsonhad no official comment while Don Vito had only nice things to say about the tardy for the payment singer.
“I think [Kim] is a good person and it was fun working in the studio with her,” he said. “We made a great record and I look forward to working with her on the album again.”
One can only wonder is this whole “lawsuit” is nothing other than a big publicity stunt to promote her single. Surely Big Poppa akaLee Najjarcould have foot the bill for this.
It’s obvious to see some of the ladies have spent their summers with their plastic surgeons. Housewife Lynne Curtin is barely recognizable. Based on the bio information, it seems Jeana Keough will be leaving the season early, similar to what Lauri Waring did last season.
Below are the photos and a brief bio of what is to come this season of each housewife -
Gretchen Rossi – In Season 5 Gretchen copes with the death of her finance Jeff, and learns how to move on both professionally and personally. Gretch’s social life heats up when she finds a surprising new love interest (who OC fans may or may not recognize … )
Alexis Bellino – Alexis is the new Housewife on the block. Will former new girls Gretchen and Tamra give Alexis a chance, or combine their forces for peroxide-bleached evil?
The photos were shot by celebrity photographer Derek Blanks. Nene Leakesplayed the role of a mother and a stripper – a role she’s all too well familiar with, as she has admitted to being a stripper in the past.
Kim Zolciak’s alter ego had her playing a mistress and stepford wife. Kim has however denied wanting to play a mistress, claiming she was under the impression she would be playing a different role, and would have never agreed to play a mistress. Nene however insists it was Kim’s idea to play a mistress.
I thought Sheree and Kandi had the best photos. Photos are courtesy of Dblanks.com.
The video preview below also shows us the ladies will definitely be bringing back the drama!
The shocking preview highlights the following about each housewife -
Tamra Barney – Struggles in her marriage to husband, Simon Barney, and even mentions the ‘D’ word – Divorce. She will also be dealing with financial problems as she attempts to sell her house, which is now up for short sale and might be foreclosed on soon.
Lynne Curtin – Will be shown getting a face lift, while dealing with financial difficulties with her husband. Her eviction was made very public in recent weeks.
Gretchen Rossi - Is shown struggling with losing deceased fiance Jeff Beitzel, though she had already moved on with new boyfriend Slade Smiley before this season’s filming started. She is also shown confronting Tamra about the nasty things she said about her.
Vicki Gunvalson – Is shown attempting to mend her marriage after spending all of last season putting down her husband, and continued to do so by being photographed in public giving lap dances to random men, and baring her bottom in a public bar to get a tattoo.
Jeana Keough – Is shown having some difficulty with her real estate dealings.
Alexis Bellino – The newest housewife and a friend of Gretchen’s will be attempting to fit in with the other housewives.
