Is Bethenny Frankel the new Star Jones? According to the NYDailyNews, the Real Housewives of NYC star is gearing up to have a huge wedding with one little catch, she doesn’t want to pay a dime!

Bethenny, who has received her own Bravo spinoff show titled “Bethenny’s Getting Married?” has been talking to vendors all over New York about getting them to ‘sponsor’ her wedding,” a well-placed source says of Bethenny’s upcoming nuptials to fiance Jason Hoppy.

“She wants everything and anything, and she isn’t shy about the fact that the cameras will be rolling during the event.” The source reveals that Bethenny has attempted to get everything, from her dress to the venue to a planner, for absolutely free.

It however seems Bethenny isn’t having much luck unlike the former “View” host Star Jones, who notoriously got vendors to fund her lavish wedding back in 2004. The vendors aren’t as eager to give Bethenny free items for product placement on her upcoming show as the show has yet to air. “The feedback has been that it’s just too much to ask for when there’s no payment involved – especially when one episode of a show hasn’t even aired yet,” says the insider.

The source insists Bethenny is refusing to take no for an answer and will keep trying to get free vendors. Another drama brewing is which of her housewives costars will be attending her wedding. Though Bethenny has invited Jill Zarin, LuAnn de Lesseps, Alex McCord, Ramona Singer and even Kelly Bensimon. There are rumors Jill might not attend as the two have drifted apart in the recent months.

One person who will be in attendance is Ramona as the tells the mag, “I’m definitely going to the wedding. Bethenny said, ‘I want you there,’ and I told her, ‘I support you in everything you do.”

Bethenny is however denying she was shopping around for sponsors. “If I had the time to find sponsors for my wedding I deserve 2 free weddings and a trip to Fiji” she insists.

Countess-LuAnn-de-Lesseps

The singing bug has bitten another housewife as Countess LuAnn de Lesseps of the Real Housewives of NYC is the latest housewife to announce she wants a singing career.

According to E! News, LuAnn has already written and recorded a song titled “Money Can’t Buy Class,” a dance song inspired by her memoir/etiquette book Class With the Countess. LuAnn is however claiming she isn’t taking the singing thing too seriously, “I’m not trying to be Madonna, but I love to sing, and I can sing,” she says. “I sing all the time for my friends.”

So who would the Countess like to duet with? You will be surpised by LuAnn’s answer – “I want to work with Akon,” she said. “I love Akon. I saw him perform at the Apollo Theater. I took my daughter to see him because she’s such a huge fan, and I realized how great he was.”

When asked if a duet with Atlanta housewife Kim Zolciak is in the future, the Countess gave a somewhat polite answer. “I can’t see myself teaming up with her for a duet,” LuAnn said. “I think I’m going to fly solo for the moment.”

LuAnna also reveals she is dating again after her highly publicized split from husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps, who left her for an Ethopian princess last year. “I’m going slowly, but I’m very happy,” she said. “I’m finally ready to move forward. It’s taken a long time, and I’ve been through a lot, but I have been dating.”

She confirms some of her dating escapades will make it on to the 3rd season of the Real Housewives of New York City.

NYC Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny Frankel confirms she is indeed getting her own reality show, but denies leaving The Real Housewives of NYC, at least not yet.

“The spinoff news is totally true, but me being replaced after five episodes is totally false,” she told Usmagazine Monday at the Los Angeles premiere of Couples Retreat. “I haven’t started doing the spinoff show. I have started doing Housewives.”

It was reported last week that Bethenny would be replaced on the show’s third season by Sonja Morgan — a real-life friend of cast member Countess LuAnn de Lesseps.

So what can fans expect from her new reality show? “It will be just about my entire life,” she said. Adding that boyfriend Jason Hopper will be a part of her show as well. “If I know Bravo and if they know me, I just think it will be the truth, which is the balance between career and relationships and all things in between. If he is part of my life, he will be part of the show.”

Surprisingly, Bethenny says she regrets her recent diss of fellow Bravo star, Rachel Zoe. “I probably wouldn’t do it again today because it was such a big ordeal. I mean, it was unsolicited. No one asked my opinion about what I thought about that.”

Real Housewives of New York City star, Bethenny Frankel is apparently getting replaced on the show, reports USmagazine.

Bethenny is being replaced by socialite Sonja Morgan, who is a friend of Countess LuAnn De Lesseps a source tells US.

Bethenny, the author of the New York Times bestseller Naturally Thin, was confirmed by Bravo earlier this week to be getting her own show. Her new Bravo reality series will follow her as she attempts to balance her career and love life.

An insider tells Life&Style magazine that Sonja will likely make her appearance around episode five of the new season. “It’s not pretty between Bethenny and the other cast members in the episodes that they’ve already taped.” the insider adds. “I think the show is going to explode this season!”

Gawker is also reporting that Sonja is the wife of John Morgan, a great-grandson of J. Pierpont Morgan of J.P. Morgan. The couple has one daughter.

UPDATE: A spokesperson from Bravo says Bethenny is going to be on the entire third season of the show according to Gawker. When asked if Morgan was joining the third season, the spokesperson said, that “we haven’t released any details for season three.”

frankelny-housewives

In not so shocking news, Bethenny Frankel is reportedly feuding with her Real Housewives of NYC costars according to the NYDailyNews.

The shocker however is that the only housewife Bethenny is reported to be getting along with these days is her former nemesis, Kelly Bensimon. According to the report, Bethenny and Kelly made up during the summer.

Bethenny’s biggest feud is with her former BFF Jill Zarin. Her recent comments dissing Jill will certainly not help matters. The rift was more evident between the ex-besties last week during a dinner Jill hosted for 40 friends at Saks Fifth Avenue; Bethenny was the only “Housewife” who hadn’t been invited.

However, Jill isn’t the only NY housewife Bethenny is alienating herself from as she has been gradually cutting ties with Countess Luann De Lesseps, Alex McCord and Ramona Singer since news that she’d get her own show on Bravo broke during the summer.

The NYDailyNews goes on to report the the separation between Bethenny and her co-stars might be an intentional move by Bravo producers, who want her to stand alone in an attempt to pave the way for her own reality show.

I highly doubt this rift between Bethenny and the other housewives is intentional though. Perhaps they just got tired of Bethenny running her mouth and talking negatively about them behind their backs.

The Real Housewives of New York City

Bravo began filming the 3rd season of The Real Housewives of New York City on Monday despite the widely publized contract issues.

Life&Style magazine reports, “There were contract issues, but Aug. 31 was always the start date, with or without a contract,” says an insider.

Their insider also insists their salaries was not an issue, “The ladies wanted more money, and they’re getting it.” The insider continues, “Bravo was happy to up their pay since the show makes more money now. The Housewives just had an issue with some of the wording in the contract.”

According to Life&Style, Bethenny Frankel is still in talks with Bravo to get her own reality show, and might be leaving the NY Housewives after this season.

We also reported some nasty comments Bethenny recently made about castmate, Jill Zarin, so this 3rd season will definitely have some drama.
