What do you do when you're a gazillionaire cocktail mogul whose soon-to-be-ex-husband hilariously won't move out of the apartment you share? Well, if you're Bethenny Frankel, you just get a second one so you can have quality time with your douchey new boyfriend daughter.
As Bethenny and Jason Hoppy struggle to come to a settlement agreement, things are getting more and more tense in their abode. I love that Jason is sticking to his guns. Apparently, his parents come to stay almost every weekend, making things all the more cramped, awkward, and humorous!
Oh please let this be true…please, please, please! It would be so amazing to see this come to fruition. I always knew that Bethenny Frankel had a secret type, and I was right! She's totally into douchey frat daddies who are still puffing their chests and doing keg stands a decade after they graduated from college. They are a fascinating breed, but don't get too close. They are prone to STDs and using more hair product than any woman I know!
And Bethenny is in love with one! Yes! She wants to shout it from the rooftops, no doubt, wearing a string bikini and one of those weird bejeweled belly necklace situations. Epic.
Bethenny, who is reportedly pr-stuntingdating a new man, claims she is not looking for love "but I would never ever settle again." When Patti asked her if she settled withJason Hoppy, Bethenny didn't bother to answer tactfully or delicately. "Yes, I do," she replied frankly. "I didn't marry the love of my life."
Reality TV stars and legal issues are like siamese twins! This year several stars dealt with legal problems from bankruptcies and foreclosures to lawsuits and arrests.
Without a doubt Real Housewives of New Jersey stars take the crown when it comes to most time spent in court – like a lot, a lot. But the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County are not far behind them! Of course it wasn't just the Housewives who were getting hauled to court or busted by the IRS or mugshotted; several other shows represented well and held their own!
Below is the 2013 legal round up.
Above, Jenelle Evans confuses a jail cell with a spa and thinks it's a place you visit periodically to get away from it all! The Teen Mom 2 star, whose antics practically caused a cancelation for the show, racked up a whopping FIVE mugshots this year! #CheckMyCharges #GoogleMyMugshots
Oh Bethenny Frankel, whatever are we going to do with you? After deciding Jason Hoppy wasn't the husband she wanted or needed, the former reality star turned talk show host says she's nowhere near ready to date again, although that conflicts with rumors that she's been seeing Warren Lichtenstein. I won't mention that just last month she let it slip that she's seeing someone. Oops! I guess I just did!
Bethenny admits that she has no desire to be part of a couple again. She blames her attitude towards a relationship on the fact that going through this divorce is much harder than she'd ever anticipated. She also manages to throw shade at her soon-to-be-ex-husband. It's like Groundhog's Day around here, isn't it?
It's time for Parenting 101 from Bethenny Frankel, y'all! You know you love it when she doles out advice. The reality star turned talk show host is sharing a very important parenting lesson that is near and dear to her heart, and she also revealing the one thing her daughter will never hear her say.
If you thought she was going to say that her daughter will never hear her talk trash about soon-to-be ex-husbandJason Hoppy(that's what I assumed!), think again. Bethenny, who admits to once being obsessed with dieting, reveals that she doesn't want three-year-old Bryn to grow up thinking that enjoying food is a bad thing. She makes she refrains from speaking negatively about weight and diets in front of her daughter. Actually, as much as I like to poke fun at Bethenny, she makes a good point (who knew?).
Bethenny Frankel is upping the ante as far as guests on her talk show goes. She's graduated from her recent parade of Bravolebrities to the one woman who we have to thank for putting her on the air–Ellen DeGeneres. "Thank" may not be the word you would use, but as far as I'm concerned, Ellen can do no wrong. And who knows, maybe this is just another lesson in random acts of kindness courtesy of Ellen.
When Ellen appeared via satellite (is that what they still call it?) on bethenny yesterday, Bethenny introduced her by saying, "I am so excited and honored to tell you who my first guest is today. It's a woman who I trust, who I admire, who I love, who I respect. She's the most talented women on the planet in my book and she's the reason that I have a show today. I am so grateful to her, for this opportunity. Please welcome my friend and mentor Ellen DeGeneres."
