Is Bethenny Frankel the new Star Jones? According to the NYDailyNews, the Real Housewives of NYC star is gearing up to have a huge wedding with one little catch, she doesn’t want to pay a dime!

Bethenny, who has received her own Bravo spinoff show titled “Bethenny’s Getting Married?” has been talking to vendors all over New York about getting them to ‘sponsor’ her wedding,” a well-placed source says of Bethenny’s upcoming nuptials to fiance Jason Hoppy.

“She wants everything and anything, and she isn’t shy about the fact that the cameras will be rolling during the event.” The source reveals that Bethenny has attempted to get everything, from her dress to the venue to a planner, for absolutely free.

It however seems Bethenny isn’t having much luck unlike the former “View” host Star Jones, who notoriously got vendors to fund her lavish wedding back in 2004. The vendors aren’t as eager to give Bethenny free items for product placement on her upcoming show as the show has yet to air. “The feedback has been that it’s just too much to ask for when there’s no payment involved – especially when one episode of a show hasn’t even aired yet,” says the insider.

The source insists Bethenny is refusing to take no for an answer and will keep trying to get free vendors. Another drama brewing is which of her housewives costars will be attending her wedding. Though Bethenny has invited Jill Zarin, LuAnn de Lesseps, Alex McCord, Ramona Singer and even Kelly Bensimon. There are rumors Jill might not attend as the two have drifted apart in the recent months.

One person who will be in attendance is Ramona as the tells the mag, “I’m definitely going to the wedding. Bethenny said, ‘I want you there,’ and I told her, ‘I support you in everything you do.”

Bethenny is however denying she was shopping around for sponsors. “If I had the time to find sponsors for my wedding I deserve 2 free weddings and a trip to Fiji” she insists.

Is Tamra Barney a grandma? There are rumors floating around that the self professed “hottest housewife” on the block might have become a grandmother. Allegedly Tamra’s son, Ryan Vieth posted some information on his facebook about his one month old daughter named Dakota Vieth. Perhaps someone with access to Ryan’s page can confirm this for us.

Gretchen Rossi also recently took to her facebook fanpage to post a photo of her shooting a commercial for TurboTax, not sure what the correlation is between Gretchen & taxes but a behind the scenes photo is below.

The third season of The Real Housewives of NYC has yet to air, but judging from the recent events that have taken place in past months, it’s safe to say this will be a drama filled season.

“The minute I can, I will call you and give you all the dirt,” says housewife Kelly Killoren Bensimon in a recent interview. “I promise I will give you everything. I’m going to be much more talkative in the press this season than I was last season.”

When asked if she had gotten her fellow housewife Bethenny Frankel — who is four months pregnant — a baby gift, Kelly said “Everyone’s like, ‘Oh, they’re friends.’ ” Kelly explains, “No, we’re just on a TV show together. So it’s not appropriate for me to give her a gift.” (Kelly also says she doesn’t like giving baby gifts until the baby is born.)

So much for the alleged truce that had been called between the two, as they constantly feuded during the last season.  Kelly is also working on repairing her tarnished reputation which she feels has been unfairly trashed on- and off-camera.  She however insists that has nothing to do with her recent charity work, as she and Jill Zarin helped serve meals at the Food Bank’s soup kitchen in NYC.

Real Housewives of NYC star Kelly Bensimon visited a beach this weekend, as the reality star mother of two decided to soak up some sun in Miami, Florida.

Kelly also decided to show off her gymnastic skills as she proceeded to do some cartwheels on the beach shore.

As we reported earlier, the 44-year-old former model will be stripping down for Playboy magazine. “It’s the ultimate compliment and every woman’s dream. You get to be a sex symbol and work with top people in the business. It’s such an honor,” says Kelly on posing for Playboy.

During the 25 years celebration of the Wii game launch in NYC, FOX411 caught up with New York City Housewife star Kelly Killoren Bensimon. Kelly discusses having babies and posing for playboy.

Currently, the NYC Housewives’ are busy filming and gearing up for their third season which will air 2010. During the last season, Kelly got some bad press for allegedly beating her ex-fiancé. In the 3rd season, Kelly is looking forward to showing viewers who she really is, “a very enthusiastic person about a lot of things.” I guess we will be the judge of that.

However, Kelly isn’t enthusiastic about discussing cast mate and rival Bethenny Frankel, who recently announced she was expecting her first child. According to FOX411, Kelly didn’t want to comment on Bethenny’s pregnancy but she “hopes that every woman has a baby if they can.” Following her divorce, Kelly would like to be married again and have more kids in the future depending on her future husband which she is yet to meet.

In other news, there has been several reports on Kelly posing for the December Playboy edition however, Kelly said she could not “confirm or deny” the shoot. That is funny considering she said in other interviews that she barred her bod for the mag and that is “the ultimate compliment and every woman’s dream.”

So when asked, “hypothetically, whose nude shoot would be sexier, 41 year-old Kelly’s or 19 year-old Levi Johnston’s recent ‘Playgirl’ pictorial? Kelly’s response was, “If I did pose for ‘Playboy,’ I can’t compete with anyone else. I’m just swimming my own race.”

Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon

It seems hell might have frozen over as the NYDailyNews is reporting that Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon have become fast BFFs.

The stars of the Real Housewives of New York City have reportedly gotten closer especially since Jill’s falling out with Bethenny Frankel over the summer.  “Now that Bethenny is out of the picture, Jill is definitely on team Kelly,” one source insists.

The NYDailyNews also states that Kelly is determined to change her image, as she was not happy with her portrayal on the show’s previous season. “She was mortified when that show aired last year,” a source close to the former model dishes. “She is really trying to look better in front of the cameras this season.”

So what is Kelly doing to improve her image? Well for starters, she showed on time to the Halloween bash she hosted in N.Y.C. on Saturday night. She even gave up her VIP table to hang out in the crowd. “She was dancing and saying hi to everyone,” another partygoer said. “A lot of people were kind of shocked at how nice she was being.”

Also in attendance of her Halloween bash was Jill.  It is also said that Bethenny has become close friends with Ramona Singer, and Alex McCord.  This should all make for a very interesting third season.

Kelly Killoren Bensimon

Real Housewife of New York City star, Kelly Killoren Bensimon was recently interviewed by Star magazine. The mother of two, author and jewelry designer is staying busy until season three premiers early next year. In the interview, Kelly talked about being a role model for her girls, Mr. Right and posing for playboy.

Excerpts from Kelly’s interview is below

Star: Will you and Bethenny Frankel be friends when Housewives returns?
Kelly: I just want to be a good role model for my girls. Seeing me fight with Bethenny was good for my children because they need to learn about conflict and resolution, which is why I went to Bethenny’s event. I wanted to be the bigger person.

Star: So what qualities does Mr. Right need to have?
Kelly: He has to be like James Bond, full of adventure. I want someone who is going to explore and be athletic or just go to a dive bar, drink beer and eat chicken wings.

Star: Why did you pose for Playboy?
Kelly: It’s the ultimate compliment and every woman’s dream. You get to be a sex symbol and work with top people in the business. It’s such an honor.

In not so shocking news, Bethenny Frankel is reportedly feuding with her Real Housewives of NYC costars according to the NYDailyNews.

The shocker however is that the only housewife Bethenny is reported to be getting along with these days is her former nemesis, Kelly Bensimon. According to the report, Bethenny and Kelly made up during the summer.

Bethenny’s biggest feud is with her former BFF Jill Zarin. Her recent comments dissing Jill will certainly not help matters. The rift was more evident between the ex-besties last week during a dinner Jill hosted for 40 friends at Saks Fifth Avenue; Bethenny was the only “Housewife” who hadn’t been invited.

However, Jill isn’t the only NY housewife Bethenny is alienating herself from as she has been gradually cutting ties with Countess Luann De Lesseps, Alex McCord and Ramona Singer since news that she’d get her own show on Bravo broke during the summer.

The NYDailyNews goes on to report the the separation between Bethenny and her co-stars might be an intentional move by Bravo producers, who want her to stand alone in an attempt to pave the way for her own reality show.

I highly doubt this rift between Bethenny and the other housewives is intentional though. Perhaps they just got tired of Bethenny running her mouth and talking negatively about them behind their backs.
