The Housewives discussed the drama on their shows. Kyle was fresh off of the episode when Lisa Vanderpump ditched Dorit Kemsley in a restaurant and of course, Bethenny had to answer some questions about her costar Luann de Lesseps following her arrest and rehab stint.
Bethenny Frankel has come a long way from selling baked goods at a super market during Season 1 of Real Housewives of New York. She put skinny margaritas on the map and she has been expanding her empire ever since with more vodka, appliances, lunch meat, and so many other products.
Now the mother of one has a new business in the works and it involves her daughter Bryn Hoppy – well, sort of. There’s no word on whether or not Bethenny will be turning to Bryn for input, but Bryn definitely inspired Bethenny’s latest move.
Every time I see photos of Real Housewives from different cities hanging out, I want to know what happened before and after those pics were taken. Are these people actually friends or are these just photo opportunities that guarantee a lot of likes on Instagram?
New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, and Melissa Gorga went to Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper’s show with the New York City cast members Dorinda Medley, Carole Radziwill, and Tinsley Mortimer. Did they all sit together? Did they pregame the event? Was there a post-game? I have so many questions. Danielle Staub shared her own photos from the show, did she hang with them too? Did she go on a different date?
The Real Housewives stars sure have a lot of problems when it comes to interns and , assistants! This week it’s The Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer being sued by a company that provided her with an assistant, accusing her of some super shady behavior – including a physical altercation when it was all said and done!
The lawsuit was filed by a company called T360 that provided Ramona with the assistant featured in the suit, Lisa Taubes, who agreed to work 20 hours per week for $4,000 per month. The papers allege that Taubes wound up working more than 40 hours without additional compensation and was expected to be on call 24/7 and perform duties like walking Coco, Ramona’s dog, something that was NOT in her job description.
The company is suing for $150,000 in damages.
Jill Zarin has been mourning the passing of her beloved husband, Bobby Zarin, after losing him to cancer last month. But the former Real Housewives Of New York cast member seems to have an ulterior motive when it comes to staying in the media spotlight: She wants to get back on the show, and she wants it badly.
A source close to Jill reports that she is upset about Bravo featuring her on the series, but not offering her a contract. “Jill’s grown tired of making cameo appearances on the show without being offered an actual job,” according to mysterious “sources.”
Let’s hope that Luann de Lesseps didn’t log into Instagram after she checked out of rehab earlier this week. She might feel a little bit slighted by her Real Housewives of New York costars. They did some sort of jail-themed workout class, complete with mock mugshots. Shade much? Or is it a merely a coincidence? I’m going to assume that it’s the former and just hope that this ends up contributing to a story line next season.
Aside from those glorious faux mugshots, there were some other great reality star photos for this week’s Instagram roundup.
Original Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Danielle Staub made her big comeback this season after five seasons away from Bravo. She started out on the show as a friend of Jacqueline Laurita and she left the show as an enemy of Teresa Giudice’s after Teresa flipped a table on her and chased her through a country club.
Now Danielle and Teresa are on good terms, but the same cannot be said about Danielle and Caroline Manzo, Dolores Catania, and Siggy Flicker – which is surprising to just about no one. Speaking of Danielle’s beefs, she recently revealed that she has issues with Atlanta Housewife NeNe Leakes.
Yesterday the news hit that Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps is facing up to five years in prison following her drunken Christmas Eve arrest. Knowing how the “celebrity” justice system works, most people did not think that Lu would ever be behind bars for that long- if at all.
Now, just a day later, a court hearing was discretely cancelled and this could be a subtle indication that the former countess has a plea deal in the works.
