Real Housewives of New York

Bethenny Frankel

We all heard about some of the Real Housewives of New York cast pushing for higher salaries last season. The moves didn’t work and as a result many of them were pushed into having smaller roles and believe it or not one of those people was Luann de Lesseps. You wouldn’t know it since most of the season focused on her controversial relationship with Tom D’Agostino and her discord with Bethenny Frankel.

Now, Luann is accusing Bethenny – and her camp – of spreading some nasty rumors about her, and the ladies are back at it with the push for higher salaries. Some things will never change when it comes to the Housewives.

Jules Wainstein and Michael Wainstein divorce

I cannot help feeling bad for Jules Wainstein. She has been going through a brutal divorce from Michael Wainstein and on top of all that drama, word has gotten out that Jules will not be a cast member on Real Housewives of New York next season. 

At this point, I would like to think that life can only get better from here for Jules, but the hits keep coming. In a separation that included accusations of infidelity against Michael, police involvement, and difficult negotiations for spousal and child support, I feel so awful for the Wainstein family, especially the kids. Now, Michael is moving back into the home, which seems pretty wild since Jules had a restraining order against Michael.

Jules Wainstein awarded $10,000 a month child/spousal support

It is a rough time to be Jules Wainstein these days. The news broke this week that the new girl will NOT be returning to Real Housewives of New York, yet she’s still battling it out with her costars. Not only that, but her nasty divorce from Michael Wainstein is still ongoing. What is the latest? The judge granted Jules spousal and child support.

Why is that rough? Unfortunately for Jules, it is not as much as she originally requested. And there’s actually some more bad news for the Wainstein family, Michael and his lawyer alleged that he cannot afford the decided amount. Uh oh. It looks like the drama will never stop between these two.

 Real Housewives of New York reunion

I am still in shock after watching part one of the Real Housewives of New York reunion. The stand out moment that made me feel beyond awkward was when Bethenny Frankel alluded to Dorinda Medley doing drugs and Sonja Morgan chimed in. 

I could not believe what I was watching. Even at home, my face turned beet red from the vicarious embarrassment so I can’t imagine how the people who were actually in the room felt. In a not-so-shocking turn of events, both Dorinda and Sonja made comments about that specific part of the reunion episode.

Real Housewives of New York Reunion Part 2

Last night’s Real Housewives Of New York reunion was dominated by one tantruming, feet-stomping toddler bellowing “I can say what I want!” No – I did not turn my three-year-old loose on Andy, but after witnessing the un-checked behavior of Bethenny Frankel, I’m certainly not comfortable letting anyone at Bravo babysit. OK, maybe Jules Wainstein, if she brings her “waiting on line” nanny and potty training expert.

Things begin with Luann de Lesseps calling Bethenny a “horrible person” for calling her boyfriend’s teenage daughter to “verify” she didn’t have an affair*, which resulted in Bethenny standing over Luann to scream “LieAnn” (nice twitter steal) in her face. Luann telling Bethenny she’s “evil” didn’t even cause Bethenny to flinch – despite what the previous depicted.

Bethenny Frankel on WWHL

After The Real Housewives of New York reunion part 2, Bethenny Frankel and Michael Rapaport were Andy Cohen’s guests tonight on Watch What Happens Live. Bethenny talked drug accusations, wanting to grab Luann de Lesseps by throat and more. Michael addressed his beef with Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Jacqueline Laurita.

Andy starts off by asking Bethenny if there’s anything she didn’t get a chance to say to Luann at the reunion. “I think her despicable and tragic behavior speaks for itself.” She says that Luann came in with the hope of getting the “stench” off of herself and Bethenny feels like someone came after her with a 2×4. “I was crawling out of a hole that I don’t know why someone dumped me in. It was crazy.”

Jules

Is it already time to say goodbye to Jules Wainstein?  Sources say that Jules will not return to Real Housewives Of New York for a second season. 

Jules was added as a friend of Dorinda Medley‘s, but she had a lot of difficulty connecting with several of the women and fitting in, additionally she was dealing with several complicated personal issues – from her eating disorder, to marital problems, and her father’s health, which meant lackluster storylines.

Dorinda and Sonja

I watch Real Housewives of New York religiously, but I have to admit that I’m thrown off by the animosity between Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan. I don’t even recall them fighting during the season other than Sonja saying she was upset that Dorinda did not invite her to that insane Christmas party in the Berkshires.

It seemed like things were cool between Sonja and Dorinda after that during the season, but off screen there seems to be so much tension and I don’t get why. It might have something to do with Dorinda being close with Luann de Lesseps, but whatever the reason is, Dorinda is sounding off. Apparently she does not like Sonja and never will. Yikes!
