Well, well – there are bigger troubles in the Big Apple than the horrendous weather! And that trouble is Bethenny Frankel. Why am I not surprised? LuAnn de Lesseps, who announced she’s “fully back” as a full-time Housewife this season, says Bethenny is at war with co-stars and it’s been a dramatic dynamic for the Real Housewives Of New York cast!
LuAnn maintains that she and Bethenny get along just fine, which is quite a departure from their previous relationship on-screen. “I didn’t know what it was gonna be like, I thought it was going to be awkward but it’s actually turned out to be good.”
She feels Bethenny brings an old-school RHONY vibe to the show. “We get along really well so it’s like old times … it’s kind of like the good old days of the Housewives,” LuAnn acknowledged.
Sonja Morgan has finally launched a business! Sadly it’s not a toaster oven. The Real Housewives Of New York star held a party and fashion show to celebrate the launch of Sonja Morgan New York Brands, which will make its official debut in Summer 2015. But the show was not without drama when Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel exploded into an argument during the runway show!
Sonja Morgan’s first foray into the fashion industry features a capsule collection of “essentials” featuring ready-to-wear, sportswear, evening wear, and swimwear as well as a jewelry line “echoing Sonja’s classic yet sexy style, her collection is vibrant and timeless.” It will be available in department stores and retail establishments this summer, according to Sonja, whose businesses have a way of disappearing on us!
The reality stars are out in force this week – mostly congregating in NYC for Fashion Week. Hopefully some of them picked up a few pointers along the way! Not only do we have some fashion week pics, but also some celebs getting their fitness on (Lisa Rinna) and catching flights (NeNe).
We have a new photo roundup of reality stars out and about – including poor North West, whose parents claim to want privacy for her, but then put her front row at Fashion Week…again. Nori got her payback last night at Kanye West’s big Adidas runway show, where she sat like a good Kim Kardashian daughter-bot for a few minutes (see above) and then threw a toddler tantrum right next to poor Beyonce and Anna Wintour (see below).
Other reality stars were out and about for New York Fashion Week, too, like Cynthia Baileyhitting the runway for “Go Red Dress For Women.” Kristen Taekman took in the shows, as well as La La Anthony.
Also on vacation in Miami and showing off a summer-ready bikini bod: Padma Lakshmi! Both women are spending some time on Miami beach, escaping the oppressing cold and snow of New York City! See all the photos below.
In our new batch of reality star sightings today, we have still-going-strong couple Demetria McKinney and Roger Bobb, as well as a plethora of stars attending Pre-Grammy parties.
Demetria and Roger attended the NAACP Image Awards together on Friday night while Joanna Krupa hosted a party at 1OAK, giving us a whole lot of sideboob. Also spotted was Kyle Richards who hit up a dinner hotspot with husband Mauricio Umansky, who was then accidentally labeled in the photo set as Kyle’s first husband, Guraish Aldjufrie!
