The episode awakens amid the chaotic domestic scene of Jules Wainstein‘s morning. I presume the live-in nanny doesn’t do childcare before 9am? Jules struggles to make coffee for husband Michael, then announces she’s eating half his breakfast, and then puts both kids in the bathtub, even though they’re perilously perched on being late to school – as always. Not that Jules cares. Paying tuition entitles her to reinvent the clock, so she can be an hour late everyday if she wants to. It’s Jules‘ world and we’re all living on Jules time – it’s hair flip o’clock somewhere!
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Above: Responding to negative comments about her body, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna shared, “Chill Bitches. My body is a healthy body. I am proud of this body. It is strong and healthy. We come in all shapes and sizes, body shaming is wrong on every level. It’s a terrible message to send our daughters. #AllBodiesAreBeautiful #BeYou”
Not shockingly, the Bravo franchise that at one time seemed beneath Skinnygirl maven Bethenny is now regaling in her return. She makes the show great. And you don’t have to trust me on that one…she’s the one who thinks it! I kid, I kid. Bethenny may be the expert on everything, but it’s the ladies’ special blend of drama that makes the show fun to watch.
Last night was the season premiere of Real Housewives Of New York. We met new Housewife Jules Wainstein. The original B of Bravo, Bethenny Frankel, also returned, and whew, was she some kinda mouthy! Bethenny apparently sees herself as the reverse fortune teller of RHONY; she won’t tell you your hopeful future, but with condescending judgement she will point out everything that’s wrong with you, your life, your past, and your overall way of being.
Bethenny is also the ‘Party Police’ this season – obviously replacing the woman she once loved to hate, Heather Thomson, who gathered her big-girl shaping panties and fled this Skinnygirl bar.
Things begin in Bethenny’s new apartment. Hurrah – she’s no longer homeless! The new place is nice, but in that blandly generic HGTV design show sort of way. Dorinda Medley visits to gawk over Bethenny’s Traum Safe, as if it’s something Dorinda couldn’t afford to install in her own pad. Bethenny and Dorinda have become close, but there is one major issue: Bethenny doesn’t approve of John. Like at all.
About Kyle “finding out”Lisa Vanderpump tried to throw her under a bus over the Munchausen drama, she shares, “I didn’t just find out anything. This is something that happened months ago. I dealt with it in the moment. When Lisa Rinna brought it up, I said, ‘I’ve already dealt with this and we talked about this and it’s over. I don’t want to be brought into this. If you have an issue with it, that’s your thing. I have moved on. Lisa and I are in a good place and I want to stay there.'”
Sonja Morgan and Luann de Lesseps were guests on Amy Phillips’ RadioAndy show on SiriusXM this morning. The ladies dropped a few spoilers and sneak peeks at the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New York. Andy Cohen even stopped by to share his favorite moment so far as he screens the upcoming episodes.
Sonja says that we be seeing a lot of arguments over brands – namely her and Bethenny Frankel going at it over Sonja’s attempts to launch “Tipsy Girl.” Sonja says, “Bethenny went crazy. she took it personal, she was upset.” Luann chimes in to say that there’s room for everyone – especially in the alcohol business.
