The 39 year-old reality star, who is married to Jason Hoppy, delivered her baby girl Bryn two weeks ago, about a month early from her due date. Bryn Casey Hoppy, who was born via c-section, weighed a tiny 4 lbs. 12 oz.
The baby is said to have spent four days in the hospital before coming home, healthy and happy. Bryn is named after Jason’s older brother Bryan, who died in a car accident 19 years ago.
It’s miraculous,” says Bethenny. “I’d barely even held a baby before. I didn’t have that maternal instinct… until now.”
“We didn’t know anything about kids,” continued Bethenny. “Now we can’t believe we could have possible missed this.”

Jill Zarin, star of the Real Housewives of New York City, continues to prove that she is her own worst enemy. Just 2 weeks after amazongate, during which the housewife was caught threatening someone on Amazon.com who left her book a bad review, and then making up a fake name to give her book a good review, Jill seems to have found another shocking way to top herself. We shall call this ‘Babygate.” By the way, the above picture of Jill was taken just yesterday. That looks like a genuine smile no?
And no, this isn’t a Bethenny Frankel is a saint and Jill is evil story, but to be quite frank, Jill’s behavior both on and off the show, has been downright nuts and sometimes ‘evil.’ On Friday, Bethenny went into labor, a month earlier than expected. This was reported by several reliable media outlets and even confirmed by Ramona Singer, who said she spoke to Bethenny.
Hours later, a nut who goes by the twitter name of Tweetmaxine, posted that Bethenny had delivered a baby boy. Shortly after, Jill posted a congratulatory announcement on her facebook page congratulating Bethenny on delivering a baby boy. What really drove me nuts about this was that Jill did not have to mention the sex of B’s baby, but of course being the gossip monger that she is, and in her pathetic attempt to gossip and scoop the press, she had to include the baby was a boy.
After hearing of Jill’s post, I searched all over the internet Friday night, visited PEOPLE.com and all the major websites, only to find absolutely nothing on Bethenny giving birth. Not one single story from a major site. Visited PEOPLE.com because Bethenny announced her engagement and pregnancy through them last year, and logic told me she would likely do the same with her birth. My thought process at the time was that perhaps Bethenny did give birth to her baby on Friday, but why is Jill the first/second person to announce it before her? Shouldn’t Bethenny be the first to do this? And my instincts were right as Bethenny did announce the birth of her baby girl with PEOPLE on Saturday morning.
The main question on my mind is what the hell is Jill thinking? I’m guessing Jill’s thought process was, “Okay, I have to be the first person to congratulate Bethenny on her delivery. Hopefully when people see this, they will think that I’m not so awful, the press will include my congratulatory message in her delivery news. Hopefully the fans will like me again. Plus I get to prove I’m still “in the know” by knowing this, and I get to win cookie points with fans by scooping the press and breaking this news to them.”
Yes that’s what I believe was going through Jill’s head, all very irrational thinking, without even considering that no official announcement had been made by Bethenny herself. And as we all know now, Jill couldn’t have been more wrong. Not only did Bethenny not give birth on Friday, but her baby was a girl. Jill posted the following explanation on her facebook on Saturday:
“Yesterday [my daughter] read a tweet and blog that Bethenny gave birth. We were excited and congratulated her obviously prematurely. I should have waited until B announced it herself. Sorry.”
Yes Jill, you were really that happy, overjoyed and excited for Bethenny that you couldn’t wait to inform the world of her false delivery. Must say Jill is a pretty amazing person to be that overjoyed for someone who wants absolutely nothing to do with her. And oh yeah, for someone, who just a month ago, referred to her wedding ceremony as being “circus like,” must say Jill is truly amazing, almost saint like to be that excited for Bethenny. Now some feel she is throwing her daughter under the bus and using her as an excuse, but I’ll let you be the judge of that. And as for her daughter reading the story on a blog? Absolutely false. The only blog that posted the story on Friday, did so after Jill’s facebook message and used Jill as a source. The worst part about this is that Jill forcefully and selfishly inserted herself into the biggest news of Bethenny’s life and now most of the stories out there about Bethenny’s delivery, including ours, includes Jill Zarin, all thanks to Jill Zarin of course.
When writing this story earlier today about Jill Zarin confirming thatBethenny Frankeldelivered a baby boy yesterday, we were very skeptical and careful to not state this as fact. Apparently, we had good reason.
PEOPLE magazine, a more reputable outlet than our good ol Jill, is now confirming that Bethenny, star of the Real Housewives of New York City and her husband Jason Hoppy welcomed a baby girl Saturday morning, as in today, and not yesterday as gossiped reported by Jill.
“Bethenny and Jason are proud to welcome their new baby girl, Bryn Hoppy, born at 8 a.m. . . . in New York City,” the rep says. “She is a 4 lb. 12 oz., healthy baby. Bryn, mom, dad and [their dog] Cookie are all very happy.”
Bethenny and Jason were surprised by the sex of the baby, as they decided not to find out beforehand. As we reported earlier, Bethenny is weeks early and was actually due in June. Hopefully the baby will continue to remain in good health. Congrats to Bethenny and Jason!
UPDATE: So Bethenny has to deal with having her baby prematurely and then thanks to Jill, swerving off rumors that she had a baby boy yesterday. It’s just shocking that after all that’s been said about her on the show, she would still resort to this. Jill has however received some major backlash from fans on her facebook page. Some are below -
“No wonder Bethenny got rid of you as a friend !! She can’t even enjoy a happy moment in her life with out you stealing it from her! this was not your information to Post,” a user named Summer Breaz wrote.
And Christine Marker added, “You really are stuck in Jr High!! The fact that you announced the birth of B’s baby boy is DISGUSTING!! How dare you? You really do need to seek therapy for your need to be center of attention.”
UPDATE #2: Jill has now removed the post, announcing that Bethenny had a boy, from her facebook page, instead posting this explanation for her major fail faux pas. “”Yesterday Allyson read a tweet and blog that Bethenny gave birth. We were excited and congratulated her obviously prematurely. I should have waited until B announced it herself. Sorry.”
TELL US – DID JILL GO TOO FAR IN ANNOUNCING THE SEX OF BETHENNY’S BABY? OR WAS IT AN INNOCENT MISTAKE?
“Her water broke at 12:46 a.m. She’s at the hospital now,” revealed a close friend of Bethenny, who recently married entrepreneur Jason Hoppy.
This was also confirmed by Bethenny’s co-star,Ramona Singer, who tweeted yesterday, “ OMG at the airport. & just spoke to @bethenny…she’s in the hospital having the baby!!!!!!! do you think it’s going to be a boy or a girl?”
Okay, all this occurred early yesterday and as of this morning, there are no official reports from any publication on the sex of Bethenny’s baby, but low and behold, a quick look at gossip monger, Jill Zarin’s facebook, reveals Bethenny had a baby boy.
Jill posted the following yesterday evening, “Heard Bethenny had a baby boy…so happy for her and Jason. So happy for them.”
So there you have it. Jill is pretty much the only person to inform the world of the sex of Bethenny’s baby. Not even Bethenny or the people she actually talks to have shared this information. It’s good to see Jill staying true to her character. No word on who she texted to get this exclusive “gossip” but we will let you know once this has been confirmed by a reliable source.
In tonight’s episode, Bethenny Frankel’s pregnancy is leaked all across the internet thanks to blogger Perez Hilton, and she is forced to confront her fiancé ,Jason Hoppy, with the news.

On the other side of town, we get some more new blood this week whenJennifer Gilbert makes her debut as a part of the group. Meanwhile, when Sonja enlists Ramona to accompany her to a plastic surgeon consultation, the ever appropriate Ramona does not hold back in grilling the doctor about his credibility.

TELL US: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW AND TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
The new show will follow the 39-year-old natural foods chef/author and her then fiancee Jason Hoppy as they prepare for their wedding, parenthood and moving in together.
Also starring on the show will be Julie Plake, Bethenny’s assistant who helps keep track of her business and personal endeavors, and Max Meisel, Bethenny’s intern who is often the butt of Bethenny’s jokes. Bethenny’s dog Cookie will also make some cameo appearances on the show.
And despite widespread reports that Bethenny is in talks to appear alongside Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen, and Lisa Rinna on a new CBS daytime talk show similar to The View, CBS has denied neither Bethenny nor Lisa is involved with the new show.
TELL US – WILL YOU BE WATCHING BETHENNY’S GETTING MARRIED?
The Real Housewives of New York City star tweeted days ago, “honeymoon is magical!” Paparazzi caught up with Bethenny as she honeymooned in St. Barts. And despite being eight months pregnant, Bethenny wasn’t shy about throwing on a bikini. More photos of Bethenny’s honeymoon are below.
On Why She Was Upset About The Article – “There is so much nonsense, and I signed up for it. I will never act like some victim. Don’t hate the player. Hate the game. I just didn’t like feeling that a friend had discussed our private matters with everyone in the world besides me… I didn’t care about the item. I cared about how it got there.”
Her Feelings On Jill’s Email To Kelly – “Jill’s email to Kelly is all part of the “get a hobby” advice. Who even has time to worry about who other people are associating with? I can’t even get over how juvenile picking teams is. I can’t even dignify it with an opinion. it truly doesn’t affect my life whatsoever.”
Her Thoughs On Jill’s Behavior – “As I’ve said on the show, Jill has never met an argument she doesn’t like. When she feels she has a case, she continues to belabor that point to rally troops against her enemy of the moment. For various reasons, she was very excited to have something to use against me over and over again. Everyone has their way of operating and this is how Jill functions.”
Her Feelings On LuAnn – “I wasn’t surprised at all to find out that Jill allowed LuAnn to listen to our conversation. I don’t expect anything whatsoever from LuAnn, so I am never disappointed nor surprised.”
And there you have it. Bethenny also added she has no hope whatsoever for a reconciliation with Jill. Can you blame her?

The Real Housewives of NYCstar tied the knot with Jason Hoppy at the prestigious Four Seasons in NYC this Sunday. “It’s so cliché, but it was the best night of my life!” Bethenny tellsOK!. “It was just like Jason and me — sentimental, fun, absurd at times. I didn’t know it was possible to be this happy.” The photo gallery is below.
NYC Housewives Recap – Last night’s episode of the NYC Housewives brought us more Jill vs. Bethenny. In case you haven’t been keeping up, the two have yet to make up, andJillZarin even went as far as to refer to Bethenny’s wedding as “circus like” just days ago.
Now back to this episode, we see Bethenny get upset over an article in a NY newspaper detailing the demise of her friendship with Jill. Bethenny suspects Jill planted the article, and something tells me she’s right.
Bethenny then calls Jill in an attempt to mend their friendship, Jill puts Bethenny on speaker phone and doesn’t tell her LuAnn is in listening. Things take a turn for the worse and Jill declares their friendship “done.” Bethenny, who didn’t seem to realize just how severe their “fight” was, is seen crying and being very emotional.
What really stood out in this episode to me was the email Jill sent Kelly, basically scolding her for befriending Bethenny and trying to pressure her to be only Team Jill. Seriously is Jill still in high school? So Kelly is “not allowed” to talk to Bethenny if she wants to be friends with Jill. That email showed Jill’s true colors, and I must say, they are far from pretty. This, in addition to Jill saving Bethenny’s “you need a hobby” voicemail and playing it for who ever is willing to listen, continues to show just how petty Jill is. I would love to hear Jill’s defense to sending Kelly that email.
I must also say kudos to Kelly for confronting Bethenny and calling her out for being some what of a hypocrite. I’m a Bethenny fan but I agreed with Kelly all the way last night. Bethenny shouldn’t have been whining about being bashed in the press considering she did that to Kelly last year, with every chance she had. This moment of confrontation brought us a “real Kelly.” It was good to see her being human for once and not the typical ditz she usually is.
However seeing Kelly throw herself all over the Playboy interviewer brought us back the old Kelly, and quite frankly the whole charade was a bit embarrassing to watch. I mean the poor guy had to ask her out, she was ALL OVER him. Kelly is then seen later in the episode saying that she decided not to go out with him after all. Sure Kelly, but something tells me Mr. Playboy never called her, but you be the judge of that.
