Despite their on-air catfights and the constant taking swipes at each other in the media, The Real Housewives of New York‘s Kelly Bensimon is now saying she has no bad feelings towards Bethenny Frankel.
“Honestly, I don’t hate her,” she told Usmagazine on Wednesday. “I actually really respect her. It’s not easy trying to start a business and be single in New York.” These days, “we can be cordial,” says Kelly. “I’m not going to go out of my way to, like, be a bitch.”
And as for their now infamous bar fight on the show, Bensimon says she “needed to clear the air.”
Kelly of course couldn’t resist taking one last swipe at Bethenny saying, “I think a lot of people are scared of her, and well, I’m not scared of her. And I refuse to put up with her s–t.”
Anyone else weirded out by Kelly running in traffic on this week’s episode? Is that a New York thing?

Though Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey series has yet to premier, one of the stars is already making headlines. Jacqueline Laurita is pregnant with her 3rd child as confirmed by People magazine. Jacqueline appeared visibly pregnant at the Bravo upfront presentations in New York City on Tuesday, where the network promoted its upcoming summer and fall schedule.
Jacqueline was shown in the show’s season preview talking about her past miscarriages so good luck to the new mother to be. She has a 6-year-old son, CJ, with her husband Chris, and a 17-year-old daughter, Ashley, from a previous marriage.
The NYDailyNews is reporting that The Yankees slugger was seen stepping out this weekend in Miami with The Real Housewives of New York star BethennyFrankel.
Alex Rodriguez and Bethenny allegedly shared an intimate dinner at a local restaurant on Friday night. Rodriguez then dropped off Frankel at the Fontainebleau Hotel around 12:30 a.m. Saturday. A source told The News’ Gatecrasher column last month that Frankel and A-Rod hooked up “three months ago” but that, after quickly rounding the bases, “A-Rod cut it off.”
Bethenny has laughed off these rumors saying, “We’re madly in love; we’re engaged. I fly to Miami every weekend. I’m in the front row when they’re playing. I never felt this way.” Before insisting, “No, I’ve never been in the same room with him,” adding, “Can it be George Clooney? Can’t it just be the celebrity I want to be aligned with?”
There is a new report that The Broke Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield’s home is currently being foreclosed. This was the home that was purchased by both Sheree and her ex husband Bob Whitfield. As you all know by now, Sheree did not get the millions of dollars she was hoping for in her divorce settlement.
Sheree was also sued by her lawyers just a month ago for not paying her legal fees. Nene Leakes was also evicted from her rented Atlanta home late last year.
LuAnn de Lesseps is speaking out about her split from her husband Count Alex de Lesseps. “It’s been really difficult for me,” The Real Housewives of New York City star told Us at a Whole Foods event in NYC Monday. “I just need time.”
She also spoke to People in their new issue, and recalled the shocking email she received from her husband – “It said that he had met someone and they were serious.” LuAnn says she was devastated at the news. She also says breaking the news to the couple’s two children, Noel, 12, and Victoria, 14, has “probably been the hardest part.”
She’s also having a difficult time getting up everyday to promote her new book, Class with the Countess, an autobiographical etiquette guide that hits bookstores April 16. “When I wrote the book I felt very secure,” says de Lesseps. “And that’s totally changed.”
LuAnn goes to state that she plans on remaining friends with the Count and doing what is best for her children. But will she remain a Countess? “Absolutely, darling!” she told Us. “I’ll always be the Countess!” And there you have it, she will always be the Countess!
The Real housewives attended the Bravo A list awards this weekend and below are pictures of the housewives. Very interesting seeing Gretchen with all the other OC housewives. The Real housewives of NY star Bethenny Frankel blogged about meeting all the housewives -
“This past weekend was the Bravo A-List Awards in LA, and I had the distinct pleasure of meeting all of the housewives. Yup, Atlanta and OC too.It was a weekend of a lot of wigs and a lotta weave. Here were the highlights: Kim is larger than life, off the rails, I don’t give an F, I drink, I smoke, my rack is hanging out, so stick it. Good TV for sure. Sheree was shockingly quiet, understated, nice and seemingly drama free (her flaming cling on gay glam friend notwithstanding). Lisa was tiny and peppy and sweet. Gretchen is bubbly and giggly and a stereotypically ditzy blonde, but truthfully, she seemed sweet on the surface as well. The fact that she’s dating Slade is too absurd to discuss, so I’ll let the viewers decide if he makes it next season. The blondes from OC have the most boobs and hair and lashes and Lynne made a funny comment that she could carve her initials in her face.
Where were the cameras? Truthfully, for a group of 13 women, I have to say, we played along very nicely. As for the husbands, except Simon Barney, most of them are wallflowers, and I’m not sure if George even speaks.
Freud would have a field day with this – Lauri “accidentally” sprayed Gretchen with her own personal airbrushing machine and her red carpet dress (which was half white) now had tan on it. She handled it surprisingly well.
What also made me laugh was the number of groupie entourage peeps these broads hung with. New Yorkers are independent. Ramona and I rolled solo while Atlanta and the OC had hair, makeup, friends, artists, drivers, bodyguards – you name it.The fact that my cast is way more subtle is truly astounding in and of itself.”
