A new week means a new gallery of the reality TV stars showing off, throwing shade, or sharing snapshots on Twitter and Instagram. Then there’s Bethenny Frankel, in a category all of her own, Skinnygirl! Everything! Forever!, showing off her bikini body while promoting her watermelon line.
Everyone was so caught up in shooting the messenger that pretty much no one condemned the cheater himself. Luann even went so far as to blame herself for getting in a fight with Tom the night that he strayed. It was painful to see her disrespect herself in that way. And now Bethenny and Ramona Singer are calling Luann out on social media.
Well this show has certainly come full circle this season, hasn’t it? We started this Real Housewives of New York reunion with Bethenny Frankel using her Botox jaw to rip the surgically tucked skin off these women, and we ended things with a hapless Bethenny Frankel sniffling while everyone sang kumbaya. I am perplexed.
The bulk of the episode, like the bulk of the reunion, and pretty much the majority of the season, centered around the scintillating personal life of Luann de Lesseps. What happens in Luann’s bedroom is a national attraction at this point. People don’t go to NYC to visit the Statue of Liberty any longer, they to study the newest de Lesseps donation – the Penthouse bedroom of the ex Mrs. Countess.
Last night’s Real Housewives Of New York reunion was dominated by one tantruming, feet-stomping toddler bellowing “I can say what I want!” No – I did not turn my three-year-old loose on Andy, but after witnessing the un-checked behavior of Bethenny Frankel, I’m certainly not comfortable letting anyone at Bravo babysit. OK, maybe Jules Wainstein, if she brings her “waiting on line” nanny and potty training expert.
Things begin with Luann de Lesseps calling Bethenny a “horrible person” for calling her boyfriend’s teenage daughter to “verify” she didn’t have an affair*, which resulted in Bethenny standing over Luann to scream “LieAnn” (nice twitter steal) in her face. Luann telling Bethenny she’s “evil” didn’t even cause Bethenny to flinch – despite what the previous depicted.
In our post-Labor Day Weekend photo gallery, we have a handful of celebs spotted out and about.Kandi Burruss and husband Todd Tucker attended the 2016 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards at Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta. Thoughts on Kandi’s look here? Seems a little Phaedra-inspired, no?
We also have pics of Kim Kardashian and daughter North twinning in silver dresses ahead of the Kanye West concert in NYC. And we have photos of Bethenny Frankel from last month when she attended that Coldplay concert and reportedly got a little feisty.
