Do I expect to see Brandi on TV again? Unfortunately, yes. Do I think she’s as in demand as she wants us to believe she is? No, I believe she’s suffering from NeNe Leakesitis. Does one of Brandi’s in-the-works reality TV projects involve Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman? Supposedly, yes.
In her blog this week, Kristen Taekman throws a bit of shade at Sonja Morgan before respectfully tipping her hat (or her statement necklace) at Sonja’s long-time-coming fashion show. The Real Housewives of New Yorkmodel dishes on why Sonja’s handling of her model casting was extremely inappropriate, how proud she is of ‘Pop of Color’ launching, and how the housewives were ultimately “all blown away” at Sonja’s successful fashion show.
As for Sonja’smodel casting, to which Bethenny Frankel and Heather Thomson were summoned, Kristen remarks, “I really do not understand why whenever someone is invited to anything with Sonja, they have no idea what they are in for. I would have to agree with Bethenny that a model casting was a waste of her time. Heather was a perfect fit for that since she does model castings all the time. But I must say, how on earth can you do a model casting without seeing the clothing? Hmmmm. Maybe I’m missing something.”
Carole Radziwill is back in the USA after nearly being arrested by TSA for smuggling undeclared Clarins hand cream through security. The urn “which looked like a bomb” (from the Hindenburg era) bearing her late husband’s ashes – oh that was fine, thanks to Dorinda Medley‘s giant fur coat which happily ensconced the precious cargo. Things you learn from Housewives: always pack giant fur coats when attempting to smuggle goods through TSA.
Heather Thomson, ever the supportive friend to all, is happy to hear that not only was Carole’s trip a success in finding closure, but that Anthony’s return has finally completed the design scheme in Carole’s remodeled apartment. Hi honey, I’m home!
Starting with the scenes of Carole Radziwill retrieving her late husband Anthony’surn, Kristen confesses she was emotional. She shares, “I was crying while watching this. She is not a hugger and very rarely cries. I was happy that she was able to have this time to feel these emotions. Sometimes I think that letting it all out is the best way to move on from grief and pain. Dorinda [Medley] was the perfect partner to share all of this with.”
Reality stars were out and about again this week, attending events and running errands from coast to coast. Above: Former Real Housewives of Miami star Joanna Krupapromotes the adoption of dogs for Polish TV station TVN.
Ramona Singer and Andy Cohen were spotted in NYC leaving the studio after Tuesday night’s episode of WWHL. In another part of NY, Kristen and Josh Taekman attended the All Star Code’s second annual summer benefit in East Hampton. The event raised more than $600,000 for the tech education non-profit.
Kris Jenner, her boyfriend Corey Gamble, and her family went to the Pantages theater together, along with the newly single Kourtney Kardashian. The also-single Scott Disick was in Vegas to make an appearance in Vegas.

Our favorite reality TV stars, like Heather Dubrow and Chelsea Houska, love to show off their adorable kids on Instagram and Twitter. It is not easy to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the cutest family photos from the past week.
“So after this week, one thing is clear to me: the sentiment of ‘forgiveness’ is lost on some of us,” begins Dorinda. “To me, it was apparent when I tried to apologize to Heather at Kristen [Taekman’s] Smile Train Denim and Diamonds event.” After praising Kristen’s success in throwing her first ever charity event – “she really presided over the function with the grace and elegance of a queen” – Dorinda launches into why she apologized to Heather in the first place. “I thought it’d be a good time to take Heather aside and try to clear the air, because we were both just getting more and more aggravated by the misunderstandings and clashes we’d had throughout the season and, in those situations, time is NEVER on your side.”
Kristen gushes, “Smiletrain event! It’s finally here! My first ever charity event! I am so honored to be a part of such an amazing organization! We raised a bunch of money, thanks to Heather [Thomson]and Yummie!” Kristen goes on to clarify Heather’s involvement in her charity work, which consisted of more than throwing “a few necklaces down on a table” and demanding acknowledgment. “Let me set the record straight! Heather and I had collaborated six weeks before the event to work out the details that her Yummie team had been in contact with Smiletrain about to set up the pop-up store and work out the logistics.”
