After the second installment of the Real Housewives of New Yorkreunion, Bethenny Frankel admits it’s all a bit of a blur. “This one made me laugh,” writes Bethenny in her Bravo blog. “Let’s just say that I say some things, and when they air it, it is like hearing it for the first time.”
One thing Bethenny does remember is Ramona Singer’s cuckoo behavior, whether searching for nuts to eat on set or defending her petty theft of dresses. Bethenny snarks, “She doesn’t needs nuts. She is nuts enough for all of us. Even though I love and forgive her, she had to be held accountable for her actions. From taking my property to lying about me cheating, she had to be checked. Based on a very kind voicemail she left me yesterday, she definitely feels remorse.”
Last night the ladies covered what I refer to as administrative details, but Andy Cohen was utterly superfluous as Bethenny Frankel stepped in to truly host the reunion, which is an excellent way to take heat off your own misdeeds. Like when Bethenny repeatedly accused Ramon Singer of being nasty and having a nasty side and saying truly awful things. I was like for every finger Bethenny is pointing at Pinot Pologies of The Ramacrame Delusions of Turtle Time Island, there are four Singer Stingers pointing back at Bethenny. Honestly, is Bethenny cognizant that she is the queen of the cutting and nasty comment? Back to Dr. Amador‘s couch you go! She should just move the good doc into her Skinnygirl subsidized apartment, paint him red, and make him part of the zillions of products she hawks under the guise of healthy living.
The Ashley Madison leak fallout continues on. It’s not just Josh Duggar, government officials, and random civilian husbands getting busted for having accounts with the cheater website. Now it has filtered on down to the Bravolebrities. Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman’s husband Josh Taekman is the latest person to be outed for having an account and making multiple payments to the site.
Earlier today when the news broke, Josh vehemently denied that the account was his own. When the Daily Mail ran the story, showing proof that Josh had over 60 transactions with the affair site, he told them someone else had to be using his information. Josh told them, “I don’t understand. There’s not a shot in hell that I’m a subscriber. I have no knowledge of that this is the first I’ve ever heard of it. This is crazy. I saw it on the TV the other day about the security breach and we were laughing about it. It is what it is but somebody is definitely fraudulently using my name and number.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Unlike other Real Housewives who need to pop Xanax and bring along a barrel of wine to get through the reunion taping, Kristen Taekman looked forward to the Real Housewives of New York reunion! Kristen shares her thoughts on Part 1 in her new blog, dishing on the Luann/Carole/Adam tension, Bethenny Frankel’s party snub, and so much more!
Kristen starts out, “It’s that time of year again! Reunion. Every ‘Wives’ chance to settle arguments and hash things out once and for all. Unsurprisingly, I dread reunions. For me, some things should just be left in the past. However, this year, I was looking forward to the reunion. This season, friendships were created and broken and there was a ton of unresolved issues leading up to it.”
I’ve always observed a love/hate relationship with Bethenny – I’ve adored her, I’ve found her annoying, and in the last couple years I’ve really soured on her in the wake of her divorce and her constant discussing of Jason in the press. Although there is still a smarmy me-me-me element to Bethenny that always bubbles beneath, she’s really grown on me this season and I do feel that her divorce coupled with the loss of her talk show has humbled her. She handled the reunion with a dignity we’ve never seen form Bethenny, and a side of her I hope to see more of.
Bethenny didn’t allow herself to be talked down to, she ignored petty slights like Heather Thomson trying to goad her into a fight with Luann de Lesseps by revealing a toast to ‘take Bethenny down’ at the start of the season, and she didn’t go overboard trying to defend herself.
Ramona Singer is going overboard to prove Ramona Pinot is better than Skinnygirl! According to sources Ramona was totally drunk at the Real Housewives Of New York reunion after she spent the entire filming sipping on her own fine wine.
Ramona got so drunk an insider claims she passed out on the stage during taping! “The ladies broke for lunch, which was ordered into the venue and Ramona supplied her own wine,” a source shares. “By the time they had to return to the set, she was out of it.” Due to her constant pinot swilling Ramona requested two bathroom breaks, which required filming to be paused.
“Ramona drank so much of her own wine, which she brought with her to the taping, that she literally fell asleep,” dishes an eyewitness. Hopefully someone drew all over her face with eyeliner! Ramona denied taking a mid-reunion nap and claimed she was “meditating” for a few minutes. She was just resting her eyes, you guys!!!!
In the video clip, the cast starts out chatting with Andy about which other RH show they’d like to join because when he asked RHOBH stars about it, they all said New York. (Bethenny Frankel wants to go to Atlanta for a HW swap) Then they shared which Housewives they’d love to bring on their show. Dorinda says Brandi, Luann would bring Lisa in and Sonja says Kyle. Andy turns the Brandi talk to Kristen , who is BFFs with Brandi. He comments that Brandi had a very rough season on Beverly Hills. Andy asks if there’s anything Kristen would like to say in Brandi’s defense; does Kristen think Brandi was misrepresented? “I definitely think she was misrepresented [last season on RHOBH]. I think that she’s going through a very hard time, and continues to, like many of the women on this cast have been going through some rough times.”
