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.
Ramona Singer wants it known yes, she did by happenstance accidentally commandeer Bethenny Frankel‘s dress, but it was hardly a designer item worth thousands and it was hardly intentional!
Describing how she ended up with Bethenny’s dress, the Real Housewives Of New York star insists it was actually given to her by a production staffer and she never even wore it on the talk show. “Do these ladies have nothing better to talk about than a dress? Talk about ‘telephone,'” complains Ramona. “I didn’t take the dress, and I never put the dress on, but it was graciously given to me by one of the line producers at the end of co-hosting a segment with Bethenny.”
“The dress was not a Herve Leger seven-figure dress. It was a Halston, a three-figure dress,” Ramona continues. “It did not fall out of my car, but it was in my car that I share with Mario, and I didn’t know where it ended up ’til later (and on my body with Avery in an Instagram shot and cover photo on iPhone. Must say I love that dress.)”
Also, let’s get one thing clear – Bethenny didn’t want to host brunch to show off her Hamptons home (and really how could she being homeless and all) she wanted to show off her Skinnygirl collection.
It all begins at Luann de Lesseps‘ cozy Hamptons abode, the girls are clustered around the living room, drinking coffee and gossiping as real girlfriends do, also leisurely braiding Carole Cradziwill‘s toe hair (EWWW – isn’t that what Cindy Barshop is for – don’t you get the Real Housewives Federation Association discount on all waxations from here until the end of time – if you can manage to find your way out to Quogue.).
Last night the ladies of Real Housewives Of New York hit the Hamptons, where the very homeless Bethenny Frankel invited everyone over to her house for brunch only to be told by Ramona Singer that brunch was her jurisdiction and no one wants to eat out of the Skinnygirl trashcan parked in the alley behind Bethenny’s summer home. Home is where the heart isn’t!
Everyone was in the Hamptons for Luann de Lesseps‘ yardsale and to see her new home, which is fabulous, cozy, elegant, sophisticated – it definitely seems like Lu! And it has the added benefit of containing a live-in hottie mcjr chef whom Carole Radziwill, in her tomato red pants turned beet red over, as she flirted shamelessly. She was laying on the single and ready to mingle vibes thicker than a beefsteak tomato paired with mozzarella.
Heather Thomson and Carole escorted Lu to her yardsale, where eager fans were snapping pics of the Countess’ used linens and other finery. Luann looked like she was trying to hold it all together, as she ended up reneging on a couple pieces and purchasing them herself. In the middle of the auction in waltzed Ramona who was staying at her own Hamptons home with Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan.
In a recent interview with All Things Real Housewives, Bethenny dished on her co-stars and shared her thoughts on how Real Housewives of New York has changed since season 3. “I think it had changed in that it was contrived, in my opinion, because it had been on for so long that people who were new would know what to expect and think that’s how to manufacture drama,” she surmised.
Bethenny continued, “Coming back this season felt more like what it used to be like. Not contrived, it felt… it took a minute, I’ll be honest… but I feel like the tone was set to just be real and not be contrived and manufactured. You don’t need to do that, you can be interesting enough.”
Luann de Lesseps is back in her rightful place as Housewife, but she’s not bringing the Old Countess back with her. Luann admits to simplifying her life and embracing the things that matter – not shallow elitism and uppity manners – and with it Luann has found good friends. Even amongst her Real Housewives Of New York co-stars!
“I’m back on the show full-time, having the time of my life and a total blast with the girls. Well, with most of them anyway…” Luann exclaims. “Over the past year, I’ve been simplifying parts of my life and ramping up others.” Luann describes selling her lavish Hamptons home as “a good way to definitely close one chapter and open a new one.” And says her kids are also doing great.
Luann is also glad to have positive friendships with former frienemies Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel, both of whom, as we know, are going through acrimonious but very public divorces! “It’s tough to watch Bethenny and Ramona’s marriages crumble, especially with young children involved. It takes a serious emotional toll, no matter how strong you are. Bethenny is a trooper, and I hope it all works out the way she wants it to.”
Our favorite reality TV stars, like Kyle Richards, Caroline Stanbury, Drita D’Avanzo, and Yandy Smith, love to show off their adorable kids and family photos on social media. It’s tough to narrow down, but here’s our picks for the cutest family photos from the past few weeks.
