The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 7

Carole Radziwill has often been the calm, collected, voice of reason on Real Housewives Of New York. With her wry sense of humor, spot-on sardonic observations, and lucid ability to cut through the drama, it’s surprising that she ever joined a reality show – let alone managed to hang around for three seasons! Yet Carole admits she’s glad she gave it another chance because season 7 is, in her estimation, a “really good season.”

One that almost didn’t happen for Carole! After Aviva Drescher spent all of last season accusing Carole of using a ghostwriter to pen her noted and famed memoir What Remains, Carole almost left the show for besmirching her career. However, the longtime friend of Andy Cohen‘s was swayed back by casting changes, a promise of a different direction for RHONY, and was rewarded with an emotional, honest, and interesting 7th season! 


Dorinda Medley joins RHONY season 7

Dorinda Medley is the newbie on Real Housewives Of New York, despite a longtime friendship with Ramona Singer, and she admits that joining the show was scary as hell because of one Bethenny Frankel, who channels her ravenous starvation into eating socialites alive with her piranha-jaw. After working out some kinks, Dorinda happily admits she’s glad she took to the plunge into the reality TV ocean – and believes she brought a peace-making energy to the motley crew of embattled socialites and social climbers! 

I “acted as a bit of a mediator” Dorinda describes of her strategy with her co-stars. “I didn’t think I’d play that role, but I tried to bring the girls together.” 

A widow and empty-nester whose daughter left for college recently, Dorinda says she was motivated to join RHONY on a whim. “I thought, ‘I’m turning 50, and I’ve never done anything like this.’ So I decided to give it a go.” Bolstered by a friendship with Ramona and being acquaintances with LuAnn de Lesseps, she went into it with trepidation and admits it wasn’t smooth sailing. 


LuAnn de Lesseps & Kristen Taekman RHONY season 7

Without a doubt this season of Real Housewives Of New York will be very different! With Bethenny Frankel returning and Dorinda Medley joining the cast, tension emerges in unlikely places as 8 women juggle complicated, changing lives and friendships. Kristen Taekman and LuAnn de Lesseps warn us to to be prepared for a very different RHONY but in a good way

“I’m very excited about the upcoming season and personally, I was happy Bethenny was coming back,” declares LuAnn. “We’re friends, have history together – with both good and bad moments – and that adds some depth to the season. We reminisce a lot about the past, so true fans of the show will really enjoy that, I think.”

Kristen explains that for the most part everyone got along this season, but she certainly has some friction with Bethenny and hints we should “#staytuned LOL.” Kristen explains Bethenny brings “a whole new dynamic” which is an interesting contrast. 


Bethenny Frankel shows off her 'Skinny Girl' figure in an orange bikini while out for a walk on the beach with fellow Housewife Carole Radziwill in Miami

Bethenny and her bikini are back in MiamiBethenny Frankel and her Real Housewives of New York co-star Carole Radziwill are enjoying a little spring break getaway together this week. 

Bethenny and Carole were spotted together on Miami beach, soaking up the rays.  The co-stars stopped to chat with a shirtless guy and Bethenny greeted him with a kiss.  She was also photographed sunbathing next to him on side-by-side lounge chairs beachside.  Bethenny recently shared that she’s no longer with Michael Cerussi and she’s currently single, so it’s likely this is just an acquaintance or good friend – or maybe a spring break fling.

Speaking of RHONY, Bravo has been airing old episodes this week and I am having so much fun rewatching the early seasons!  It’s a little sad to see Bethenny and Jason Hoppy’s scenes together, but the rest of it is a great walk down memory lane with the original cast members!  Are you watching?   What funny bits had you forgotten about? 


The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 7

I think most of us can agree that it’s about darn time that Bethenny Frankel used some of her bajillions of dollars to enlist some public relations help in regard to her image. The once former, now returning, Real Housewives of New York star has always been a polarizing force in her spin-offs, her contentious divorce, a short-lived daytime talk show, and just her personal life in general.

After bidding farewell to the reality show that made her a household name, the skinny liquor maven is returning in the upcoming season, but Bethenny has hired some help in hopes of making herself more likable to viewers. How does one get that job?


Patti Stanger On WWHL - black sequins

Patti Stanger knows all! The Millionaire Matchmaker has apparently been witness to Ramona Singer‘s husband Mario’s adulterous behavior. 

Mario was getting very busy in the Hamptons, according to Patti, a close friend of Jill Zarin‘s, who reveals she’s seen Mario on the prowl and chalks up his indiscretions to a mid-life crisis. Last night while appearing on WWHL, Patti was asked about Mario and Ramona’s 20-year marriage, and Patti had a lot to say. 


Kristen and Brandi Talk Bachelorette Parties

Brandi Glanville has a lot of opinions – obviously. This time she’s giving her two-cents on Bethenny Frankel returning to Real Housewives Of New York and what she thinks of how Bethenny gets along with Brandi’s bestie Kristen Taekman

“I think it’s great that Bethenny came back,” the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star explained on WWHL’s After Show. “It’s hard when you keep changing the recipe, and I’m curious – I wanna know what everyone’s doing from when I started to watch the show.”



Bethenny Frankel sat down for a one-on-one interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live and talked divorce, returning to Real Housewives of New York and so much more!

Andy starts right out by sharing that Bethenny is coming back to the show at a time in her life when she’s suffering from two huge failures – of her marriage and her talk show.  Ouch.   She says “Yes.  I don’t really view them as failures.  I don’t think of them that way.  I don’t think of them as successes, don’t get it twisted, but I don’t think of them that way.  I think of them as experiences.  And I really can’t compare the two, they’re very different experiences.”
