The third episode this season is set to air tonight. It’s officially fall in NYC and Kelly Bensimon has decided its best to tell her daughters about her upcoming Playboy shoot, you know on national television.
On the other side of town, LuAnn kicks off New York Fashion Week by hosting an event that all the Housewives attend…all except Bethenny and Ramona that is. Meanwhile, Bethenny takes time out of her busy schedule to attend a show during fashion week, when she runs into Jill, leading to a confrontation between the former BFFs.
Bravo held their 2010 Upfront Party at theSkylight Studio this week in NYC, and all of our favorite Housewives as well as other Bravolebrities were sure to be in attendance.
The upfront party is when Bravo announces what is to come during their next season of television.
OK magazine was there and was able to report some behind the scenes moments. Representing the Real Housewives of Orange County were Alexis Bellino, Lynne Curtin and Gretchen Rossi, who did not seem phased by their new competition – the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The OC ladies joked that they did hear the Beverly Hills Housewives all have their own private jets.
The Real Housewives of NYC’s Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer and Alex McCord hit the red carpet together during which Jill would not reveal whether or not she and Bethenny will reconcile, simply saying “watch the show.”
Kelly Bensimon also hit the red carpet with LuAnn De Lesseps, and when asked how she thinks Bethenny will be as a mom, she replied, “I can’t really speak to that. I’m sorry.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta were the only housewives franchise to all walk the red carpet together. The Atlanta ladies are reportedly getting along better these days.
The 39 year-old mom to be recently dished on her upcoming wedding to fianceJason Hoppy. “I find that just looking at dresses, I have Bridezilla moments,” says Bethenny who is currently filming her new reality show – Bethenny’s Getting Married? “You feel like an 8-year-old, trying on things and getting stuck in a dress, and I’m like, ‘Get me the hell out of here!’”
In true Bethenny fashion, she makes it clear she isn’t going to be the typical bride. “I don’t care about stuff -– the dresses and all that. It’s not me,” she says. ”I’m not the shopper, and everyone knows that I don’t like to transact. I don’t like the stores and registering and all that stuff. So I’ve been sort of doing it, but I don’t love that.”
And when it comes to her baby’s sex, Bethenny reveals she is still in the dark about that. “I want to know what I’m having, but my fiancé won’t let me find out. My fans think it is a boy. They say a girl steals your beauty and I don’t look deformed yet,” she says.
When asked what it was like to film while pregnant, she shares, “It was a really crazy season. I don’t know how they could top it. It was like a full moon everyday. Being pregnant and emotional, it was impossible. There are a lot of things turned upside down. Alliances have changed and friendships have had some tests.”
Since posing nude for PETA went rather well, can we be expecting Bethenny in Playboy anytime soon ala costar Kelly Bensimon? “Maybe I’d take pictures with my baby but Playboy, that’s not where I am. I’m 39, it’s like ‘Enough already.’ Playboy would be a terrible decision for me. It has nothing to do with what I’m doing [or] the brand I’m building,” reveals Bethenny.
Tonight is the long awaited and highly anticipated premier night of the Real Housewives of New York City, and the claws are set to come out in this third season opener.
Tonight’s episode will show most of the Housewives ganging up on the newly pregnant Bethenny Frankel. We will also see the widely reported rift between former BFFs, Bethenny, 39, and Jill Zarin. Apparently, things took a turn for the worse between the two when Bethenny told Jill she needed to find a new hobby and stop meddling in her life.
Then it’s Kelly Bensimon’s turn, and she has a big bone to pick with Bethenny after their very volatile relationship last season.
“She’s scary,” snaps Kelly. “I would never cross me because she’d attack me or say something bad. I was like, ‘that does not a friend make.’ It’s weird. That’s not a friend, that’s a foe. She’s got issues. I mean, come on, she ‘invented the margarita,’ says Kelly, taking a dig at Bethenny’s SkinnyGirl margarita franchise.
As we reported yesterday, it seems as the season moves along, it will become a Bethenny, Alex & Ramona team vs the Jill, LuAnn & Kelly team.
The third season premiers tonight at 10 p.m.ET on Bravo.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE SEASON PREMIER?
The NYDailyNews reports Ramona Singer threw a premier party for the upcoming new season last week, but only 3 out of her 7 fellow housewives bothered to show up. Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon and LuAnn de Lesseps were nowhere to be seen while Bethenny Frankel, Alex McCord and Sonja Morgan were in attendance.
According to sources, there is good reason for this. Apparently, “there’s a clear split between the cast, and you can definitely see it by who decided to attend Ramona’s party,” says the source. The insider also added that since LuAnna was planning to throw her very own premier party, she felt she had no reason to attend Ramona’s party.
Despite that, those in attendance still found it a bit “surprising, considering Andy Cohen and a number of other Bravo honchos were all at Ramona’s party. Everyone was expecting her[LuAnn], Jill and Kelly to at least stop by.”
And don’t expect a truce between Bethenny and Kelly anytime soon. In a new interview with LaTimes, Bethenny had the following to say when asked about her infamous altercation with Kelly from last season – “I always thought she was missing a significant portion of her brain. I grew up in a dysfunctional household, and I’m really attuned to crazy people. I think she just triggered me and I went, “Wow, this is what crazy looks like really upfront.” Yikes.
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. The new season is set to premier tomorrow night on Bravo at 11:00 pm.
The season finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians featuring the birth of Kourtney Kardashian’s first child, was the most watched program in the history of the E! network. Drawing in 4.8 million viewers, it’s safe to say the Kardashians will not be going away anytime soon.
Some have questioned whether such an intimate moment such as childbirth should have been shown on national television, one person who strongly disagrees is new mom Kourtney.
“She’s 100 percent happy she did it,” Khloe Kardashian, 25, told UsWeekly Tuesday while in NYC. Khloe however revealed she was a little ‘traumatized” with being in the delivery room.
As for her current relationship with her sister’s boyfriend, Scott Disick, whom Khloe is not a fan of, she reveals that “Everyday is different,” when it comes to Scott.
In other news, the NYPost is reportingKhloe Kardashian almost started a cat-fight amongst two Bravo NYC housewives, Kelly Bensimon and Ramona Singer, a during her recent appearance at a NYC night club.
Apparently Khloe was chatting with Kelly, during which Ramona got jealous and decided to pounce in on their conversation in the VIP area, thus causing a ruckus. According to a source, “Ramona barged her way through the VIP area and practically jumped over a table to get to Khloe.” Kelly was reportedly “mortified and left immediately.”
Kelly declined to comment on this story while a rep for Ramona insists she “did not steamroller her way in — Khloe invited her.”
