She still has tension with her former roommate Sonja Morgan, she’s coming for Luann de Lesseps and her quickie marriage to Tom D’Agostino, and she has an on-again-off-again romance with Scott Kluth. She’s even straightened her hair for a scene or two- which is a big deal considering how attached she is to her signature curls.
Real Housewives of New York City
When Real Housewives of New York premiered, Bethenny Frankel was a single woman living in the Big Apple. The Bravo viewers saw her date, take a pregnancy test, and get married all on camera. As the viewers know, that marriage did not end well.
Ever since then, Bethenny has been way more private when it comes to even mentioning her love life on Real Housewives of New York. Her story lines usually focus on her business, charitable endeavors, or her arguments with the other Housewives- never a boyfriend. That’s why it was pretty shocking when Bethenny shared a video of herself walking down the aisle with a bouquet of flowers during a trip to Las Vegas. Yes, you read that correctly, but there’s more to the story.
Season 10 of Real Housewives of New York is definitely delivering- on and off the TV screen. Luann de Lesseps and Carole Radziwill have no qualms shading each other in interviews, blog posts, and on Twitter.
Luann is upset with Carole for not caring about her divorce. Carole’s girl Tinsley Mortimer called out Luann for the quickie marriage and refusal to open up about her breakup. And now Luann and Carole are tweeting up a storm. Well, Carole is tweeting up a storm. Luann had no issue sharing her true feelings on Twitter, but she didn’t compose as many tweets.
A rift in Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill’s friendship has been teased ever since the trailer for Real Housewives of New York Season 10 was released. There has been some subtle shade in the first two episodes and Carole called out Bethenny in a Bravo blog post, but the viewers haven’t witnessed the friendship drama on the show itself.
To hold you over until the next episode airs, Carole and Bethenny’s beef spilled over to Twitter and this time it has to do with Bethenny’s charitable efforts. During the first episode of Season 10, Bethenny invited Tinsley Mortimer and Ramona Singer to a gala to thank them for being so supportive of her hurricane relief work. Carole was noticeably absent.
With Watch What Happens Live taping in Los Angeles all week, it was a guarantee that Real Housewives cast members from the past and present would show up and take a lot of photos together. The Los Angeles taping meant that Housewives and alums from Real Housewives of Orange County and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills showed up in droves.
Original Housewives Vicki Gunvalson (obviously), Jeana Keough, and Lauri Peterson showed up for a taping along with Kelly Dodd, Gretchen Rossi, Jill Zarin, Dina Manzo (who lives in California now), Eileen Davidson, and NeNe Leakes among others.
First Teresa Giudice came out of jail looking phenomenal and she just keeps getting hotter. Now Luann de Lesseps has jail time (albeit it a way shorter time period than Teresa) and a rehab stint to thank for her recent glow-up.
Luann’s decision to stay sober and focus on her wellness is a good thing for her legal troubles and her body- clearly. The former countess shared a video of Instagram showing off her bikini body- which is not something I ever expected to see from the woman that we “met” during Real Housewives of New York Season 1. Oh, how far we’ve come.
You know a Real Housewives show is good when it returns with the same cast it had last season and when it doesn’t rely on “Friends of the Housewives” or other side characters to make it interesting. The only show that statement applies to is Real Housewives of New York.
