On tonight’s episode of Bethenny’s Getting Married? We finally get to see Bethenny get married!

The big day has finally arrived and Bethenny Frankel is indeed getting married! A few select housewives aka Alex McCord and Ramona Singer (and plenty of awaiting paparazzi) are present as the Bride prepares to walk down the aisle. With her due date in the near future, a very pregnant Bethenny gets desperate when she needs a bathroom break too close to show time.

Tune in tonight at 10/9c on Bravo to see Bethenny and Jason exchange their vows. Photos from the big day can be seen here.

Speaking of Bethenny, though a lot of amazing things seem to be happening to her – think PEOPLE magazine cover and a hit reality show – some are starting to wonder if it’s all too much too soon.

I blogged a while back stating that watching Bethenny on BGM gave me some cringeworthy moments. I didn’t go into detail about it but the folks at NyMag.com wrote a good article asking is Bethenny to BGM what Jill Zarin was to the Real Housewives of New York City. As in is well liked Bethenny the villain of her own show?

Examples of Bethenny’s villainess behavior include asking her assistant Max Meisel to pick out her panties for her, scolding him for not having the car ready after one of her speaking arrangements, getting snappy with fiance Jason, or how about when Jason’s mom took Bethenny wedding dress shopping and tearfully told her “I finally have a daughter.” Bethenny seemed moved by her comments and teared up as well only to then turn around and act like she was doing the woman a favor, in therapy, when she stated “I could have gone on my own.”

It didn’t end there as Bethenny then held it against Jason during a later argument about how she had to take his mom dress-shopping. The writer makes an excellent point when she says Bethenny “should be thanking these people for not holding it against her that she’s dragged them onto Bravo.”

Another blogger at Chicagonow.com wrote a nice article asking “Is Bethenny Frankel being built up just to be torn down?” Bethenny seems to be at her peak right now with the husband, hit show, popularity amongst the fans, and of course the PEOPLE magazine cover. And trust folks, the People magazine cover is a HUGE deal. She’s been on the cover before but she’s never had the main cover dedicated to her. That’s a first for any Bravo reality star. In fact the only other reality stars who has had a cover story dedicated to them on People are Kate Gosselin, and some past Bachelor alums. Oh yeah, and the above picture is of Bethenny during her appearance on CBS’ Early Show today.

The article questions if the tide is turning for Bethenny as some fans are jumping ship based on what they’ve seen on BGM, you know Bethenny being a pregzilla bridezilla. Then there’s also been the negative press questioning her rapid weight loss after the birth of daughter Bryn, and the whole beef with reality villainess Omarosa.

But then again perhaps we the bloggers are over-analyzing what we see on TV. My take on this? I’m a Bethenny fan, and still like her for the moment. My fear however is those sentiments might change by the time this season of BGM ends. I hope that’s not the case. Perhaps I’m just overreacting to what is normal behavior by a hormonal pregnant lady who’s planning a wedding. But perhaps I’m not. Perhaps Bethenny is just too honest and doesn’t know where to draw the line in filming a reality show. Or perhaps she’s just a villain. I would love to hear your views and opinions on Bethenny on Bethenny Getting Married?

Omarosa

Reality show bitch villain Omarosa is dishing about her life in a new interview with Vibe.

The 36-year-old star of her dating show, The Ultimate Merger, opens up about her past marriage, her calling to be a minister and also discusses her infamous feud with Bethenny Frankel of the Real Housewives of NYC.

And despite being photographed at various events with actor Michael Clarke Duncan, Omarosa claims she is still dating the winner of her show.

Excerpts from her interview below -

In all your press over the years nobody ever mentioned that you’re Nigerian. What does your name mean?

My full name is Omorosaonee; it’s a Yoruba name that means, ‘my beautiful child desired.’ My father’s family is Nigerian my mother is American. I do recognize where I’m from and my lineage. I mean you look at my cheekbones, you look at my fierce fighting spirit and attitude—you know exactly where I’m from. I went to Nigeria three years ago and did a whole press tour there for about three weeks and helped to launch an Apprentice Africa. It was pretty exciting.

When we first met you on Season 1 of The Apprentice you wanted to work for Donald Trump, when did you discover you wanted to be a minister?

I got my calling two years ago, I didn’t respond to my call immediately but that’s when I got it. I absolutely want to be a minister.  I’ve been doing missionary work around the world for the last five years; work in Haiti and for the homeless. Wherever God calls me, wherever he leads me that is where I’ll go, and if he eventually leads me to a church that’s where I’ll be.

The Ultimate Merger was completed last year, which means you’ve already shot the reunion special and found your man. I know you can’t reveal the ending but are you really saying you’ve married someone from the show?

That was my intention to find love. I went all the way in, one hundred percent [with this show.]  The hardest part is not being able to be seen [in public] with the person that you ultimately chose. It’s been seven months since we’ve finished the show and we’ve [my new guy and I] have had to do some sneaking and creeping around because we can’t disclose who the winner is. So that’s been interesting.

So what would say went wrong with your first marriage?

My ex-husband and I married very young. I was 22; about to turn 23, he was in his early twenties. We were college sweethearts at Howard University and we had no clue what it took to make a marriage work. A benefit of recognizing that early enough was that we could decide amicably to go our separate ways. And we still have a good relationship.

You called Bethenny Frankel (from Bethenny’s Getting Married? and Real Housewives of New York) a “twit” recently. How did that all come about?

Bethenny Frankel was on The View and she was actually being complimented by Sherri Shepherd who said, ‘Bethenny you were on the Martha Stewart Apprentice and now you’ve got your own show and you’re doing your own thing. You’re utilizing this opportunity like Omarosa.’ And then Bethany says, ‘I’m not like Omarosa, she’s just famous for being infamous, she doesn’t have a real career I have a real career.’ It was really crazy stuff because Bethenny was a friend. She called after Martha Stewart Apprentice and asked me, ‘What can I do to extend my fifteen minutes of fame?’ Martha Stewart Apprentice had like two viewers, and The Apprentice had 28 million viewers— so who has the real career? Don’t get me started. That arrogance and the idea that [Bethenny thinks she has] this superiority [over me], it just baffles me, really baffles me. I mean this girl was a cocktail waitress five years ago; I worked in The White House. I mean really, who has the real career?

The Ultimate Merger

Reality villainess Omarosa Stallworth’s dating show premiered last week on TV One. The show, officially titled Donald J. Trump Presents The Ultimate Merger, follows Omarosa’s quest to find love amongst 12 eligible bachelors.

Omarosa, 36, who is mostly known for her role on the first season of The Apprentice, describes her new venture with Donald Trump as “a mix between ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘The Bachelorette.’”

Donald and Omarosa reportedly developed the show together.“When you have a development project with ‘the Donald’ you don’t pass it up,” Omarosa told BV Newswire. “Donald is invested in me and seeing me succeed and you have to have someone who is going to look after your success.”

As for the show, it was revealed in premiere episode that Omarosa has a history with two of the bachelors. Omarosa revealed she had briefly dated Charles Parker, a foreign currency trader whom she refers to as a “player,” and R&B singer Al B. Sure, who Omarosa notes, “didn’t seal the deal” the first time around.

Another notable bachelor on the show is CJ Miller, who appeared on the first season of ABC’s True Beauty.

When it comes to the direction of the dating show, Omarosa makes it clear her show is distinct from the others. “I really enjoyed the whole franchise, from ‘Flavor of Love’ to ‘Ray J,’ and I think there’s a place for that type of program, but this one is kind of different. Ain’t nobody passing out roses or writing poetry,’ she laughed.

The Ultimate Merger airs Thursdays on TV One at 9 p.m. ET. A new episode airs tonight. I gave the show a shot last week and actually enjoyed watching it. It was a good show all around. I would like to know what you all thought of the show.

In the mean time, below are the photos & brief bios of the 12 Bachelors.

Michaele-tareq-Salahi

More details are being revealed about the now infamous White House dinner party crashers, Michaele Salahi and husband Tareq Salahi. Michelle, a former Redskins cheerleader, is one of the Bravo housewives cast to be on the upcoming Real Housewives of D.C., which is currently being filmed.

Most reports and articles portray these two as being wannabes, posers, desperate social climbers who might also be broke. A quick look at Michaele’s facebook album will reveal photos of her with a number of celebrities ranging from Oprah, Jack Black, Matt Damon, Fergie, Star Jones, Ashley Judd, and even reality star Omarosa. This clearly exhibits the first sign of a poser – one taking an excessive number of photos with celebs to prove they are in the “in crowd.”

A CNN report paints the couple in a worse light, as they have been named in 16 civil cuits, and have left quite an extensive paper trail in federal bankruptcy and state court filings. One of their court cases includes a long court battle with Tareq’s parents over their family winery. Court records show Tareq sued his mother, Corinne, and the case was dismissed. Corinne sued Tareq and the case went to trial. Tareq and Michaele won control of the winery in 2007, but it has run into debt since then. The winery filed for bankruptcy back in February, and owes over $900,000 in debt.

In addition to federal bankruptcy, Tareq and Michaele may now face criminal charges. If they lied to federal agents in order to get into the White House dinner, that is a federal crime, says Fran Townsend , CNN national security contributor.

Bravo released the following statement regarding Michaele, “Michaele Salahi is under consideration as a cast member, as such Half Yard Productions were filming the Salahis on that day. Half Yard was only aware that per the Salahis they had been invited as guests.”

Not exactly sure what Bravo means by saying Michaele is “under consideration” to be a cast member. To my knowledge, she has already been cast and has been filming for months along with the other D.C. housewives. To sum this up, unless Bravo decides to do away with the DC franchise all together, there’s a 100% chance Michaele will be coming soon to a Bravo channel near you.

Omarosa Manigault StallworthDonald Trump

She’s baaaack! Known as perhaps the most famous bitch villain in the history of reality television, Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth is getting her own reality show.

More surprising is that Omarosa’s new reality show has her teaming up with her former boss Donald Trump, who’s producing the new series for the TV One network. The upcoming show, titled Omarosa’s Ultimate Merger is a dating showing, and will feature the Queen B herself finding a mate. She’ll be choosing from a dozen potential suitors.

“Omarosa was a great personality on The Apprentice that was watched by over 40 million people as it became the No. 1 show on TV,” says Trump. “Omarosa is smart, witty and difficult, but all of those qualities will make for some very interesting entertainment.”

This new show will added to the long list of Omarosa’s reality tv resume. In addition to her previous appearances on The Apprentice and Celebrity Apprentice, she has also appeared on The Surreal Life, the Battle of the Network Reality Stars and made brief appearances on Fear Factor, Celebrity Poker Showdown and I Love New York.
