Bethenny Frankel was a guest on The Steve Harvey Show yesterday and ironically she played Love Doctor. Dealing with the dramatic love lives of her Real Housewives Of New York co-stars obviously prepared her well! “I’ve learned more from my mistakes than from my successes,” explained the author of I Suck At Relationships So You Don’t Have To as she helped two couples deal with crisis.
Bethenny didn’t dish on any Housewives gossip, or discuss her own romantic involvements, but she did drop a few hints about how she feels about love, marriage, and men. “I’m really happy right now. Or at least I’m going to be happy forever,” she admitted. Which seemed to be a thinly veiled jab at splitting from Jason Hoppy. Bethenny is rumored to be dating CNBC financial expert Marcus Lemonis.
Below, some advice from Bethenny on how to handle stagnant and noncommittal men!
After a season of frustrating relationships and failing friendships, Heather found herself at a cross-roads. “My third year I kind of figured out where I was with the women. There was a beginning, middle and end for everything, and for me, that was the end,” says Heather, who credits the process for making her “wiser.”
For quite some time now, the rumors have been buzzing about Heather Thomson possibly quitting The Real HousewivesOf New York, but Heather had not confirmed nor denied the rumors. In fact, just two short months ago, Thomson claimed that she was not even thinking about next season, but we all know that in the back of her mind, leaving was a definite possibility.
Sadly, it looks as though all of those rumors are true. Heather confirmed today that she is indeed walking away from The Real Housewives Of New York, leaving some of her friends disappointed, but understanding of why Thomson wants to leave – she tired of the “forced drama.” Thomson and her BFF Carole Radziwill both spoke out about her departure recently.

Bethenny’s dramatic return to RHONY (along with the cast dynamic) revived the once stagnant show. RHONY has always been Andy Cohen‘s baby – and the same can be said of Bethenny, his friend and the original break-out Housewife. Bravo is hoping to continue that magic next season is well and are in “final negotiations” with Bethenny for a contract renewal. Along with Bethenny, the other definite returning Housewives are Luann de Lesseps and Carole Radziwill because of the former friends acrimonious arguing on and off TV.
Last night Real Housewives Of New York revealed secrets. Such secrets as Bethenny Frankel is the only woman in NYC who has abandoned waxing. And sadly, it’s all over. But there were no fat ladies singing – only ex-countesses with autotune.
The big storylines were that Carole Radziwill has forgotten how to be an author and Josh and KristenTaekman had a 10-year anniversary celebration for which Kristen busted out her wedding gown. Also, Ramona Singer confessed that there were fractures in Ramonja. That’s it – the world is ending! But there was a new RHONY dynamic duo to replace them- Harole (Heather and Carole). In the end Ramona and Sonja Morgan hugged and made-up because after an adult lifetime of friendship and drama, of course there will be times when they don’t see eye-to-eye or support each other in the right way.
Bethenny and Dorinda Medley meet for drinks to swap stories about their past lives being broke and waitressing. Both credit the hard work, volatile environment, and required sucking up for tips to their current success because they’re not afraid to speak their minds, be bold, or mix cough medicine with booze. Bethenny loves Dorinda because she’s a broad. Hey, isn’t that why we all like Dorinda? In fact, all these long seasons – what was RHONY doing here without Dorinda?!
Rumor has it Heather is fed up that her storyline this season was relegated to her drama with Bethenny Frankel, thus featuring very little of her real life. It’s no secret that Heather wants to promote her company Yummie Tummie, but she also has been active in raising awareness for the charity No Barriers Warriors, none of which we saw!
In her final blogHeather posted a cryptic message that alludes to this season being her last. Keeping it short and sweet, Heather emphasized, “I loved sharing this season with you… so let’s keep in touch!”
After being kind of, well, uncool at the Real Housewives of New York reunion, Luann de Lesseps is trying to snatch her Cool Countess Crown back by going the “it’s all good!” route in her latest assessment of season 7’s wrap. “Never before have I left a season feeling so good about my friendships with the other ladies,” says Luann of the reunion. “Life is too short to hold a grudge, and I’m glad that I leave this season in a good place with most of the girls. We showed everyone that it is possible for women to hold each other up rather than tear each other down, and we all went out to dinner after and toasted to a great season.”
Getting a dig and a compliment to work together seamlessly in a single delivery is the Countess’s specialty, so her assessment of Sonja Morgan follows suit. “I don’t know if Madonna actually made it to Sonja’s fashion show,” jokes Luann, “but I do know that the empress definitely has clothes. She did a great job and whether or not the right buyers were there, she brought her collection to fruition. As for her saying that my clothes ‘are for the masses’ while hers ‘are for the classes,’ I’m going to take the high road and say that every woman deserves to look great, regardless of how much they have to spend, and hopefully both our collections are making women look and feel fabulous!”
Sonja shared with Sara Gore and Jacque Reid of New York Live that she only said what she said aboutJosh Taekman because she thought it was a private conversation and wouldn’t be splashed on Page Six. “Egg on my face. I actually didn’t speak out, I was doing my Social Life magazine cover shoot, and there were a lot of people there from the news, covering that event, and I was talking to someone, I thought, privately. I should know better, you know, I’ve been on the show over six and a half years now, and I should know better, but anyhow…I was just saying what everyone was saying, that they weren’t surprised. But I would never get in her business like that, normally. I didn’t mean for that to happen.”
