The cattiness and nastiness is never ending with Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York. The latest involves Jill Zarin taking a swipe at Kelly Bensimon in a new interview. Evidently, Jill who is on Team Bethenny believes Kelly has no business being on the show and should take a hike!

“I don’t think it’s working for her,” says Jill. “I don’t think she should be on the show. It’s not that I think we should throw anybody off, it’s just that I think if I were her, I would not do the show again. I would go back to anonymity and spend the next year trying to repair my reputation. What’s more important to her: her reputation or fame?”

How old are these women again? Not that Jill isn’t right but is it really necessary to continue to throw Kelly under the bus? Kelly’s behavior on the show speaks for itself. Why not take the high road? Kelly had no comment but her rep says, “Jill is entitled to her opinion. Kelly had a wonderful time on the show.”

According to the same article, Bravo will be expanding this year’s reunion show to two hours over two nights after things got very heated apparently. “There were a lot of liars at the table,” Jill said. “Ramonaliar! Kellyliar! LuAnn—baby liar.”

LuAnn de Lesseps is speaking out about her split from her husband Count Alex de Lesseps. “It’s been really difficult for me,” The Real Housewives of New York City star told Us at a Whole Foods event in NYC Monday. “I just need time.”

She also spoke to People in their new issue, and recalled the shocking email she received from her husband – “It said that he had met someone and they were serious.” LuAnn says she was devastated at the news. She also says breaking the news to the couple’s two children, Noel, 12, and Victoria, 14, has “probably been the hardest part.”

She’s also having a difficult time getting up everyday to promote her new book, Class with the Countess, an autobiographical etiquette guide that hits bookstores April 16. “When I wrote the book I felt very secure,” says de Lesseps. “And that’s totally changed.”

LuAnn goes to state that she plans on remaining friends with the Count and doing what is best for her children. But will she remain a Countess? “Absolutely, darling!” she told Us. “I’ll always be the Countess!” And there you have it, she will always be the Countess!

Bravo’s A list awards taped this weekend and invited were all the ladies from the housewives series. Ok magazine reports that all the women from the three Housewives series visited the Fred Segal Fun store in Santa Monica on Friday.

They were each given $4,000 to shop for the perfect outfit for event, which is taped April 5, and airs on April 15. NYC housewives Jill Zarin, LuAnn de Lesseps, and Alex McCord were not in attendance but Bethenny Frankel and Kelly Killoren Bensimon were, and both made no attempt to make nice. They “acted as if the other didn’t even exist. They didn’t look at each other — or even acknowledge each other — even once.” The source added that Bethenny seemed to be more bothered by the situation than Kelly.

Ramona was also in attendance and was left to pay referee amongst the two. She tells Ok, “Bethenny and Kelly don’t really like each other; just like how I don’t like Simon. Not everyone is going to like each other. We are not always going to get along.”

And where was LuAnn? “LuAnn is laying low right now,” says Ramona. “We are in the public eye, but there are some things we want to keep personal. This was not something that she wanted out in the press. She’s got children, but [LuAnn's husband] obviously had a bone to pick with her.”

In a new interview with People,  Kelly Bensimon and Bethenny Frankel speak out on their feud and their feelings or lack their of towards each other -

Bethenny’s Take:
Her opinion of Kelly: “I have met her no less than seven to 10 times, and she’s a ‘faux-cialite’ — that’s a word that I came up with, and she defines that word,” says Bethenny. “Everybody in high school knew that girl who ignores you until you got on the cheerleading squad. She’s just that girl, and it’s resonating with a lot of people.”

On her Madonna comment: “Had she said, ‘I’m sensitive, that was kind of a rude comment,’ says Bethenny, “I would have said, ‘I’m sorry. I have a big mouth. I get it. Let’s move on.’ But that’s not what happened.

On the feud: “The really funny thing is that she thinks that I’m the one who looked like a lunatic last night!” marvels Bethenny. “She believes that [her former employer] Page Six Magazine, which doesn’t exist anymore, is the Washington Post. It’s not like we’re dealing with someone who has a full deck of cards. Ramona said it best when she said it’s like she doesn’t have a brain. She’s the scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz.

Kelly’s Take:
On the backlash against her: “I’m not feeling beat up,” Kelly says of the knocks she’s taken in the blogosphere for her role on the show and in this feud. “It’s fun. It’s five different women in New York [ed note: there are six Housewives], and it gets a little hot and steamy. What’s wrong with that?”

On how the feud got started: In the middle of that charity meeting, “Bethenny attacks me, calling me ‘Madonna’ — calling me names,” says Kelly. “She put me in a very awkward position in front of five other women. I was really hurt by that. I don’t even know these people and they’re calling me names!”

On their bar fight: “I wanted to say, ‘I don’t know what the situation is, but we’re on this show together we should get along and have fun with it,’ and it became something I didn’t want it to become,” admits Kelly. “It went sour immediately. I got there, I was late, it’s the end of Fashion Week, I have two young girls. When she said ‘I’ve been waiting for 30 minutes,’ I mean, I’m doing the best that I can! I’m running all over the city with kids. I have a really hectic, crazy life.”

On Bethenny’s complaint that she acts like she doesn’t know her: “I don’t know her,” says Kelly. “It’s not a negative thing, it’s a question of reality. She adds: “If she feels badly that I’m not acknowledging her, she could say, ‘You didn’t say hi to me.’” In fact, Kelly says, “Ask any person that knows me and they’ll say, ‘Oh my God, Kelly goes out of her way to remember people.’ I’m nice to every single person all the time. I like people!”

On her feelings toward Bethenny: “I’m the most un-confrontational person you’ll ever meet,” reveals Kelly. “I was put in an awkward position, and it turned out badly, but I don’t have any ill feelings toward Bethenny.”

In very shocking news, the NY Post is reporting today that LuAnn de Lesseps has seperated from her husband of 16 years, Count de Lesseps. LuAnn’s rep also confirms the separation.

According to the post, LuAnn found out her husband had been cheating on her with another woman. A close pal said, “They decided to separate. She got wind he was seeing somebody and he didn’t answer her when she called. He finally sent her an e-mail saying he was with an Ethiopian woman in Geneva and he was serious with her.”

The couple recently celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary on March 16th. Those who are familiar with the Real Housewives on New York show know that LuAnn’s husband was always away in Europe on trips. Friends of LuAnn say she was blindsided and is devastated.

A rep for Luann states, “It is obviously a very difficult time for the countess and count, but they plan to remain friends and their primary focus will be to do what is best for their two children.”

This is sad story for all parties involved. Hopefully the kids will be okay.
