The cattiness and nastiness is never ending with Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York. The latest involves Jill Zarin taking a swipe at KellyBensimon in a new interview. Evidently, Jill who is on Team Bethenny believes Kelly has no business being on the show and should take a hike!
“I don’t think it’s working for her,” says Jill. “I don’t think she should be on the show. It’s not that I think we should throw anybody off, it’s just that I think if I were her, I would not do the show again. I would go back to anonymity and spend the next year trying to repair my reputation. What’s more important to her: her reputation or fame?”
How old are these women again? Not that Jill isn’t right but is it really necessary to continue to throw Kelly under the bus? Kelly’s behavior on the show speaks for itself. Why not take the high road? Kelly had no comment but her rep says, “Jill is entitled to her opinion. Kelly had a wonderful time on the show.”
According to the same article, Bravo will be expanding this year’s reunion show to two hours over two nights after things got very heated apparently. “There were a lot of liars at the table,” Jill said. “Ramona—liar! Kelly—liar! LuAnn—baby liar.”
Bravo’s A list awards taped this weekend and invited were all the ladies from the housewives series. Ok magazine reports that all the women from the three Housewives series visited the Fred Segal Fun store in Santa Monica on Friday.
They were each given $4,000 to shop for the perfect outfit for event, which is taped April 5, and airs on April 15. NYC housewives Jill Zarin, LuAnn de Lesseps, and Alex McCord were not in attendance but Bethenny Frankel and Kelly Killoren Bensimon were, and both made no attempt to make nice. They“acted as if the other didn’t even exist. They didn’t look at each other — or even acknowledge each other — even once.” The source added that Bethenny seemed to be more bothered by the situation than Kelly.
Ramona was also in attendance and was left to pay referee amongst the two. She tells Ok, “Bethenny and Kelly don’t really like each other; just like how I don’t like Simon. Not everyone is going to like each other. We are not always going to get along.”
And where was LuAnn? “LuAnn is laying low right now,” says Ramona. “We are in the public eye, but there are some things we want to keep personal. This was not something that she wanted out in the press. She’s got children, but [LuAnn's husband] obviously had a bone to pick with her.”
