Kelly Bensimon has lived quite a life as a model, famous photographer’s wife, mother, designer, fashion icon and trend-setter. She has overcome numerous obstacles all while living with the scrutiny of the public eye – including the very negative judgement she faced on and after Real Housewives Of New York. Kelly is now chronicling her experiences through her first novel, A Dangerous Age.
“I love things that are imperfect, that have flaws,” muses Kelly. “Everything has a story. Just because it’s not perfect doesn’t mean it doesn’t have an amazing story. It usually does.”
This Jules Wainstein divorce saga is getting more dramatic by the day and I feel like it just barely got started. And it was all “coincidentally” timed to line up with the one episode that shows Michael Wainstein’s obvious flaws as a husband and the cracks in their marriage.
The divorce drama between Jules Wainstein and her future-ex-husbandMichael Wainstein continues to get crazier! Jules blames their divorce on Michael cheating. Yesterday she called the police alleging that he threatened her after a messy tax situation was unveiled. Michael is finally speaking out, and obviously denies that he had an affair. Also he blames Real Housewives Of New York for turning Jules into a narcissistic attention-seeking drama queen. No…
“The marriage is over! But, not due to any fault [of Michael] who was not ‘busted’ for cheating as incorrectly alleged,” comes a statement from Michael’s rep Mark Jay Heller.
You know what they say, “when it rains, it pours,” and that definitely seems to be the case for Jules these days. There seems to be more drama accumulating by the hour. This is far from an amicable split between Jules and Michael.
Oh Real Housewives Of New York – you never cease to amaze me. Last night’s episode shone a rather frantic light on the very temporary nature of life as a Housewife.
First up Sonja Morgan has an intern she believes is her twin. This intern has Sonja’s nose, butLuann de Lesseps‘ voice and it’s all together confusing. That poor girl – Alex – upon realizing her predicament was shocked. In Sonja’s kitchen Luann lectures her about making amends with Bethenny Frankel, but Sonja is not inclined. She’s not going to grovel at the feet of the self-proclaimed Queen B, who is schtupping other women’s husbands and channeling the burden of her hypocrisy by having hysterical projecting meltdowns on Luann. Or at least I think that’s what happened between Bethenny and Luann during the Berkshires Bonanza. Which sounds like a recipe. Maybe Adam and Carole Radziwill can put it in their cookbook?! I give it a “Radish Rating” of 9.
Everyone in the Real Housewives of New York cast has sided with Bethenny and they all tried their hardest to make Sonja abandon her entrepreneurial efforts, but Sonja won’t budge. Sonja is one of my favorite housewives, but she is really fighting an uphill battle. And as if she needed another reason to throw in the towel, it looks like Tipsy Girl has ripped off another alcohol brand!
On her relationship with Luann’s fianceTom, she says that they’ve known each other for a long time – more than ten years. She doesn’t exactly say how long they’d been hooking up, but she says it was a recurring thing. Sonja says that Tom did not get to test out her rejuvenated lady bits – but she reveals that she was with him right before Thanksgiving and Lu got with him right after Thanksgiving.
“Why do the girls care who I date or what I do with my private life? I’m living my life the way I choose and as long as I don’t harm anyone in the process, I say “chic ce la vie!” Dating is a game and flirting is part of it, but I’ve never tried to steal a man away from his woman. The fact that I have so many great girlfriends is proof that I respect other people’s relationships and that I’m a loyal friend. Sometimes, I think the girls confuse morality with jealousy.” (Ramona would disagree)
