My friends always make fun of me for my obsession with Bagel Bites. While I fancy myself a foodie, I’ve been known to eat those bite-sized morsels of deliciousness for dinner up to four nights in a row (10 a night from the forty pack…duh!). “Pizza in the morning, pizza in the evening, pizza at suppertime…when pizza’s on a bagel, you can eat pizza anytime!” I think I now know how Ramona Singer feels.
For me, it’s always time for Bagel Bites. For the Real Housewives of New York star, it’s apparently always Turtle Time! She doesn’t need a tropical vacay, a bottle of Pinot Grigio, or even a pool to show off her bikini body, as evidenced by a recent Instagram post.
Heather Thomson recently announced her departure from Real Housewives Of New York after three seasons.Heather holla’d her way into our hearts(?) and minds during season 5, following the dramatic firing of half the original cast. Despite being the new gal, the Yummie Tummie entrepreneur wasn’t afraid to speak her mind – even if the person she was holla-ing at threatened bodily harm with a pinot glass. (Or a prosthetic leg).
Below we recap Heather’s standout moments from Real Housewives Of New York. Of which there were many! From stormy St. Tropez (and Turks and Caicos) situations, getting toaster oven burnt, Avivalicious insanity, and more.
Whatever she decides Bethenny is “really glad” she gave Real Housewives Of New York another chance. She describes her return to Bravo as “eerily great,” in fact.
Bethenny was a big part of revamping RHONY and the show also helped her to reclaim her fan base following her a (and ongoing!) divorce from Jason Hoppy. Being a savvy businesswoman, Bethenny is now wondering if, yet again, she should quit Housewives while she’s ahead.
It’s reality star roundup time! This week Bethenny Frankel stepped out with her beloved dog Cookie to attend Febreze’s “Petiquette” event, along with former DWTS contestant Rumer Willis.
NeNe Leakes and husband Gregg celebrated Scottie Pippen’s birthday along with this wife Larsa Pippen. Lisa Vanderpump, Heather Dubrow, Terry Dubrow, Paula Deen and more attended a special EVINE celebration at Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills.
Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian were seen out and about together while Kendall Jenner and mom Kris headed to Paris.
“You may remember I did this show – this little show on a major network – called TheCelebrity Apprentice,” said Lisa. “The year that I did it, it was definitely, because of me, called Celebrity Fight Club because I hated everyone. What makes it worse for the women celebrities is that we have to spend two hours in hair and makeup every day because we look so bedraggled. One morning, like six weeks into the show, I am super tired and at 4 a.m. my makeup artist comes in and she goes, ‘Lisa, listen to this, everyone in wardrobe is saying Teresa – From the Real Housewives, who was also on the show with me. You know, the one in jail now. – is definitely pregnant because her stomach appears to be getting bigger.’ I’m like, ‘I need to investigate this because I need to be in on all the tea, honey.'”
Luann de Lesseps really doesn’t care if viewers like her, does she? The Countess recently announced that she’d love to see the return of Jill Zarin on Real Housewives Of New York! I cannot wait to hear what Luann’s friend Bethenny Frankel has to say about this… Thankfully, there are other names being considered as the next Real Housewife.
With the overwhelming success of Bethenny’s return to Real Housewives Of New York, Luann was recently asked what other former Housewife she’d like to see comeback. The first name out of Luann’s mouth: Jill! ““I love Jill, so I’d love to bring Jill back, selfishly,”quipped Luann.
Last night Real Housewives Of New York turned 100 and kept it 100! Andy Cohen checked in one-on-one with all of the current cast, Aviva Drescher, and also Kelly Bensimon who shared some really illumination information about her version of Scary Island, the issues with Bethenny Frankel, and more. It made me all the more le sad that Le’ Ladies New York are done for this season!
It’s clear that Bethenny has become the omnipotent narrator of RHONY; the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-describing prophet who speaks of success and failures with aplomb and certainty. It’s not a bad role for her, and she clearly relishes in it (and clearly isn’t glad her talk show ended!).
For the 100th episode, I was pleasantly surprised how candid and willing the ladies were to share their side of the stories – and I’m also super glad Bravo allowed them to really go IN. I appreciated Bravo not pretending viewers don’t understand things such as editing!
