Real Housewives of New York City star, Bethenny Frankel is apparently getting replaced on the show, reports USmagazine.

Bethenny is being replaced by socialite Sonja Morgan, who is a friend of Countess LuAnn De Lesseps a source tells US.

Bethenny, the author of the New York Times bestseller Naturally Thin, was confirmed by Bravo earlier this week to be getting her own show. Her new Bravo reality series will follow her as she attempts to balance her career and love life.

An insider tells Life&Style magazine that Sonja will likely make her appearance around episode five of the new season. “It’s not pretty between Bethenny and the other cast members in the episodes that they’ve already taped.” the insider adds. “I think the show is going to explode this season!”

Gawker is also reporting that Sonja is the wife of John Morgan, a great-grandson of J. Pierpont Morgan of J.P. Morgan. The couple has one daughter.

UPDATE: A spokesperson from Bravo says Bethenny is going to be on the entire third season of the show according to Gawker. When asked if Morgan was joining the third season, the spokesperson said, that “we haven’t released any details for season three.”

Lisa Wu Hartwell wearing Closet Freak line

Atlanta Housewife Lisa Wu Hartwell is opening up in a new interview with Essence.com. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star talks about her spirituality and the criticism she received from some of her castmates regarding her new Closet Freak clothing line.

Photos of Lisa’s Closet Freak clothing line can be see here.

Excerpts from her interview below -

ESSENCE.COM: Since you stopped by the ESSENCE office in August, how have you been keeping busy?
LISA WU HARTWELL:
Believe it or not, I’ve been speaking at churches and colleges. It all started at Pastor Jamal Bryant’s church for his empowerment seminar. I was invited to speak, and when I did I backed everything up with scripture. A lot of people were shocked that I knew the Word, but that’s a side of me folks don’t get to see on the show and that’s my spiritual side. I was saved when I was 19 and very into the church. After I spoke there were other bishops there and they invited me to come speak at their churches. It’s funny how everything comes back full circle.

ESSENCE.COM: Who knew? Would you describe yourself as an overzealous Christian?
HARTWELL:
Yes, I was a fanatic. If I was in someone’s car and hip-hop was playing I would turn their music off, or I refused to be around certain people, which was wrong because those are usually the ones that need to hear the Word the most. My brothers used to hate to see me coming and called me a holy roller. I was really into church, but I started to backslide a bit, but I’ve always had morals and integrity. Now, I don’t claim to be holier and thou because I’ve learned to find the balance. It’s just funny how God has a sense of humor and makes sure to always bring you back to him without you even realizing it, so I’ve been enjoying speaking at churches.

In not so shocking news, Bethenny Frankel is reportedly feuding with her Real Housewives of NYC costars according to the NYDailyNews.

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.

kim zolciakLee Najjar and wife Kim Najjar

Kim Zolciak of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has taken to her twitter page Thursday afternoon to announce that she and her sugardaddy married boyfriend are no longer together.

The photo on the right is of Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar and 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 –

Kim zolciak

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 Jaxson had 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 aka Lee Najjar could have foot the bill for this.
