After spending the day shilling Skinnygirl for Business Woman’s Day (photo below), Bethenny was out to dinner with Carole Radiwill and her walking manbun, Adam, when she suddenly had to flee before the entrees arrived!
Bethenny, Jules, and Kelly Bensimon and were among the New Yorkers who celebrated “The Stanton Social‘s 10+1 Anniversary” in New York City on Tuesday night.
Earlier in the week Bethenny and Jules were both photographed at the Beauty & the Beast 25th Anniversary Screening at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center.
And last night Bethenny and Luann de Lessepswere photographed attending National Geographic’s “Years Of Living Dangerously” New Season World Premiere at The American Museum of Natural History. Check out all the pics in the gallery.
I feel like such a bad person for saying this, but I was really living for the feud between Bethenny Frankel and Luann de Lesseps during the last Real Housewives of New York season. I feel a little guilty being so entertained by the tough times in people’s lives, but then again that is the whole purpose of them being on a reality show.
Although Bethenny can be super harsh, I still think it’s strange that Luann is so mad at Bethenny for letting her know that husband-to-be Tom D’Agostino was making out with another women just a week after they got engaged. So obviously, Bethenny is not getting invited to that wedding, not that she would want to go anyway.
Sure, I can get why hugging a bunch of people you just argued with could be like putting a band-aid on a broken limb, but it is step in a positive direction. So I can’t help wondering why Bethenny wasn’t down for the group hug. In a #TotalBethennyMove, the Skinnygirl defended her decision to abstain from the group hug.
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.
Bethenny gushes about Shields, “He’s exceptionally brilliant and funny, and a very major family person.” Bethenny has known Shields as “a friend” for 27 years, and shares that her daughter Bryn met him when she was a baby. She says Bryn thinks “he’s very silly and fun and nice.”
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.
