We open at Sonja’s house, where she’s dyeing her eyebrows and ordering interns to ferry her chocolate. Tinsley pops by to move the hell on in – complete with pillows! Once the “It Girl” girl of NYC, Tinsley fell hard when she splashed across the tabloids in stories revealing ongoing domestic disputes with her boyfriend, one of which resulted in her arrest. Tinsley, now less of an It Girl than a Who? Girl, is trying to rebuild her life. Mission one: find a different sort of guy to date. You know, one who you don’t need to call the police on weekly. Sonja is down for the cause.
I am ecstatic that Real Housewives of New York is back. Thankfully a new season means the cast members are doing lots of promotional interviews and sharing some interesting info, and we all know how much the RHONY ladies love to chat, especially Bethenny Frankel.
Bethenny has an opinion on pretty much everything and she always has a lot to say. And yes, this still includes discussing her divorce from Jason Hoppy.
The last Real Housewives of New York reunion was awkward for many reasons, but one of the standout moments for me was when Bethenny Frankel called her new boyfriend Dennis Shields‘ daughter to verify that they did not have an affair and that she’s on good terms with the family. That was beyond cringe-worthy and the complete opposite of being low key. Apparently, that moment was a lot less significant than it seemed because Bethenny says their relationship isn’t that serious.
I’m not sure if Bethenny is taking a step back or if she’s just clarifying a story that’s been out there for a while. It could also have to do with the legal drama stemming from Bethenny and ex husband Jason Hoppy’s confrontation at their daughter Bryn‘s school. Either way, Bethenny is making it clear that this relationship with Dennis is not super serious – at all.
Unfortunately for the ladies, the cast members of Real Housewives don’t always have the best boyfriends and husbands. Sometimes that makes for good TV and other times it’s just genuinely sad to watch and hear about. Nevertheless, there are Real Housewives husbands and fathers that you would never want to date if you had the chance – at least in my opinion.
These dudes are the worst of the worst: from the cheaters to the jail birds to the fame hungry. These are not the kind of men that you would want to be with, but they managed to end up with reality TV’s finest (and some of them did make for better reality TV viewing).
If you’ll recall, last November Bethenny’s boyfriend threatened legal action against Jason for sending harassing and horrible message about Bethenny. It seems things have not simmered down and that cease and desist did nothing to resolve the hostility.
You’d think Bethenny Frankel would be completely over dealing with attorneys, courts, and ex-husband Jason Hoppy after her extremely acrimonious 3-year divorce, but not so! Instead Bethenny just filed a $2 million dollar lawsuit against her former property attorney.
The Real Housewives Of New York star claims that Jason with the aid of an attorney screwed her in the purchasing of her $5 million dollar Tribeca condo, the ownership of which was at the center of their super messy divorce.
For the most part, Bethenny Frankel has been an open book ever since she joined the Real Housewives of New York cast. Although most of that publicity helped elevate her brand and has made her a shit ton of money, that doesn’t mean her life is perfect. In fact, we’ve all seen Bethenny‘s many highs and lows when it comes to dating.
Bethenny had no qualms about putting her relationship and marriage with Jason Hoppy on reality television, but now she has a different approach when it comes to her post-divorce dating. She is trying to be more private these days and she wants to emphasize to all of her fans that being in a relationship does not complete a person.
