Andy starts off by mentioning last night’s episode of WWHL. I planned on transcribing it late last night but it was pretty mellow, so I skipped it. But on the show, Dr. Terry Dubrow made a remark about Bethenny and that he thought she was pretty naturally and he wouldn’t do any work on her but said she was a little skinny girl. And it didn’t seem like a huge deal at the time, but apparently it became a big deal as the day went on today. So, Andy brings it up and asks her about it. I do get that Bethenny is fed up – everyone has been obsessing her over her weight recently and it’s a little obnoxious.
Last Tuesday the ladies of RHONY celebrated the premiere of season 7 with a bash at OA Bar & Grill in Tribeca. And they had reason to celebrate: Zap2It reveals that ratings for this season are already great! Revamped RHONY scored 2.2 million viewers, which is double-digit growth from the season 6 premiere, and combined with part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion, earned Bravo its best Tuesday night of 2015.
It’s just what your Tuesday afternoon needed: more reality star photos to browse through! You know you’re dying to check out the horrible reality star fashion while you’re watching the clock for the moment you can ditch work and go home…to jump on the computer and browse some more Reality Tea.
In a recent interview with All Things Real Housewives, Bethenny dished on her co-stars and shared her thoughts on how Real Housewives of New York has changed since season 3. “I think it had changed in that it was contrived, in my opinion, because it had been on for so long that people who were new would know what to expect and think that’s how to manufacture drama,” she surmised.
Bethenny continued, “Coming back this season felt more like what it used to be like. Not contrived, it felt… it took a minute, I’ll be honest… but I feel like the tone was set to just be real and not be contrived and manufactured. You don’t need to do that, you can be interesting enough.”
Luann de Lesseps is back in her rightful place as Housewife, but she’s not bringing the Old Countess back with her. Luann admits to simplifying her life and embracing the things that matter – not shallow elitism and uppity manners – and with it Luann has found good friends. Even amongst her Real Housewives Of New York co-stars!
“I’m back on the show full-time, having the time of my life and a total blast with the girls. Well, with most of them anyway…” Luann exclaims. “Over the past year, I’ve been simplifying parts of my life and ramping up others.” Luann describes selling her lavish Hamptons home as “a good way to definitely close one chapter and open a new one.” And says her kids are also doing great.
Luann is also glad to have positive friendships with former frienemies Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel, both of whom, as we know, are going through acrimonious but very public divorces! “It’s tough to watch Bethenny and Ramona’s marriages crumble, especially with young children involved. It takes a serious emotional toll, no matter how strong you are. Bethenny is a trooper, and I hope it all works out the way she wants it to.”
We have an all new gallery of reality star sightings for you today! The cast of Real Housewives of New York were out and about promoting their seventh season while DWTS pro Sharna Burgess did some bendy moves for a magazine and many more!
Skinnygirl Bethenny Frankel is back and she is happy to be here. In her first blog of the season, she dishes on her return to The Real Housewives of New York and her promise to stay honest and blunt and keep a sense of humor about the wild ride she’s been on.
She starts off, “I am so thrilled to be back on The Real Housewives of New York City. I never thought I would say those words, because I really was ready to leave when I did. I do believe you need to know when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em, and I needed to make an exit at that time.”
