Karigam - Front Row & Backstage - Spring 2016 New York Fashion Week: The Shows

New York Fashion Week is attracting a slew of reality stars this week, including Kim Kardashian, Nene Leakes, Stassi Schroeder and others.  We’ve rounded up some of the most interesting fashion picks from Fashion Week festivities and several other events happening on both coasts – and across the pond on Celebrity Big Brother, too. 

Below in the gallery we have several funky looks from NeNe that are in need of discussion. We’ve also gathered up Kristen Taekman, Luann de Lesseps, and Kelly Bensimon

Over in L.A. we have Kyle Richards grabbing lunch with a friend.  And in the UK, Farrah Abraham and Jenna Jameson got “fake” evicted on Celebrity Big Brother

Check out those pics and more down below! And stay tuned later this week as Kanye West presents his second collection.  This means more outrageous fashion picks from Kim and company.  Highlight of my week, sadly.

E! NYFW Party

The New York Fashion Week festivities are kicking off this week and the parties are underway already.  Last night was E!’s NYFW celebration and it attracted the reality stars – and their lawyers? 

Among the Bravolebrities that turned out – Dorinda Medley, John Mahdessian, Luann de Lesseps, Kristen Taekman and more – were joined by Teresa Giudice’s attorney James Leonard Jr.  Random.

Bethenny Frankel with Surfboard

Bethenny Frankel made no secret of how much she LOVED returning to Real Housewives Of New York – and Bravo is making no secret of how much they loved having her back! Is the Skinnygirl is ready for more? Bethenny is reportedly already finalizing her contract for season 8. 

Bethenny’s dramatic return to RHONY (along with the cast dynamic) revived the once stagnant show. RHONY has always been Andy Cohen‘s baby – and the same can be said of Bethenny, his friend and the original break-out Housewife. Bravo is hoping to continue that magic next season is well and are in “final negotiations” with Bethenny for a contract renewal. Along with Bethenny, the other definite returning Housewives are Luann de Lesseps and Carole Radziwill because of the former friends acrimonious arguing on and off TV.

Diddy and Friends #FINNAGETLOOSE MTV VMA After Party

Friday photo time!  Our fav reality TV stars were out and about this week, attending events, filming their shows and more! 

Kenya Moore took a break from filming Real Housewives of Atlanta (girl didn’t want to get drop kicked off a boat, probably) to show off her cleavage and killer curves in a green jumper at an MTV VMA event.

Kyle Richards, Yolanda Foster and Lisa Vanderpump were spied doing a little filming together for the new season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. 

Kristen & Josh 10th Wedding Anniversary
Last night Real Housewives Of New York revealed secrets.  Such secrets as Bethenny Frankel is the only woman in NYC who has abandoned waxing. And sadly, it’s all over. But there were no fat ladies singing – only ex-countesses with autotune. 

The big storylines were that Carole Radziwill has forgotten how to be an author and Josh and Kristen Taekman had a 10-year anniversary celebration for which Kristen busted out her wedding gown. Also, Ramona Singer confessed that there were fractures in Ramonja. That’s it – the world is ending! But there was a new RHONY dynamic duo to replace them- Harole (Heather and Carole). In the end Ramona and Sonja Morgan hugged and made-up because after an adult lifetime of friendship and drama, of course there will be times when they don’t see eye-to-eye or support each other in the right way. 

Bethenny and Dorinda Medley meet for drinks to swap stories about their past lives being broke and waitressing. Both credit the hard work, volatile environment, and required sucking up for tips to their current success because they’re not afraid to speak their minds, be bold, or mix cough medicine with booze. Bethenny loves Dorinda because she’s a broad. Hey, isn’t that why we all like Dorinda? In fact, all these long seasons –  what was RHONY doing here without Dorinda?!

RHONY Season 7 Reunion - Luann Countess Collection Dress

After being kind of, well, uncool at the Real Housewives of New York reunion, Luann de Lesseps is trying to snatch her Cool Countess Crown back by going the “it’s all good!” route in her latest assessment of season 7’s wrap. “Never before have I left a season feeling so good about my friendships with the other ladies,” says Luann of the reunion. “Life is too short to hold a grudge, and I’m glad that I leave this season in a good place with most of the girls. We showed everyone that it is possible for women to hold each other up rather than tear each other down, and we all went out to dinner after and toasted to a great season.”

Getting a dig and a compliment to work together seamlessly in a single delivery is the Countess’s specialty, so her assessment of Sonja Morgan follows suit. “I don’t know if Madonna actually made it to Sonja’s fashion show,” jokes Luann, “but I do know that the empress definitely has clothes. She did a great job and whether or not the right buyers were there, she brought her collection to fruition. As for her saying that my clothes ‘are for the masses’ while hers ‘are for the classes,’ I’m going to take the high road and say that every woman deserves to look great, regardless of how much they have to spend, and hopefully both our collections are making women look and feel fabulous!”

Luann de Lesseps defends herself RHONY reunion

So much drama to discuss from last night’s Real Housewives Of New York reunion; or at least what can be deciphered through the 7-layers of screaming. Housewives reunions are not unlike 7-layer taco dip – and one really has to slough through layers of green onions and refried beans to get to the good stuff. 

Unfortunately a lot of chips get lost in the rubble. Reunions are minefields of undiscovered gold which are always cloaked in secrecy with expressions like, “Let’s talk about what we saw when we barged into your room!? [with a wannabe pirate circa 2013]” WHAT?! TELL US. Or, “I’ve covered for you plenty!” Meaning?!? All these inferences, insinuations, and teasers of people’s ghostwriters being exposed or countesses who lunge at princesses (or at least the previews showed Luann de Lesseps standing up and yelling – is that what Carole Radziwill meant when she said a ‘lunge’?). 

Instead, we find ourselves zoning out, squinting hard at the TV, and eventually passing out from confusion. It’s a rare day when any of us can relate to Ramona Singer (I hope!).

The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 7

What a difference a week can make. When Kristen Taekman was writing her blog about the shenanigans on this week’s Real Housewives of New York’s reunion, part 2, her husband Josh was just about to get outed for his own indiscretions on the recently hacked Ashley Madison website. It’s almost hard to read Kristen’s take on the reunion, especially concerning Ramona Singer’s own failed marriage (due to Mario’s cheating), on the flip side of the scandal that’s rocking Kristen’s real-life world right now.

Not mincing words about whose side she’s on in the Luann de Lesseps versus Carole Radziwill feud, Kristen comments, “Preach, Carole! How did the situation escalate? They had chemistry! They care about each other! How can Luann expect Carole to read her mind? And it’s true. Age-shaming is a thing, and Luann is the master of it. I was happy that Carole was speaking up for herself. This is clearly a season of pent-up anger. She needed to get it off her chest. Luann is WRONG, WRONG, WRONG.”
