Well, someone found her voice this week on The Real Housewives of New York – even if it was only in her blog! Jules Wainstein unleashed her opinions about Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill in no uncertain terms. Jules’ writing is so sharp in fact, Carole even took to twitter to disparage Jules further and defend herself, re-tweeting one viewer’s pointed question, “I think Jules used a ghostwriter to write this weeks blog. What do u think?” Hmm. You be the judge!
Jules begins by wondering, “‘Why is there always yelling and screaming? Why is someone always storming out of the room in tears? Why is someone always being mocked, insulted, judged or left out? WHAT PLANET ARE WE ON?!’ And then it hit me like a meteor: We are on planet Bethenny. Unlike on planet Earth where friendships are formed and shaped through mutual support and encouragement, on planet Bethenny (which is circled 24/7 by a moon named Carole) it is acceptable for friends to disparage one another behind their backs, to judge, berate and abandon one another on an almost constant basis.” Uh-oh. Shots fired! SHOTS FIRED!
The ladies of Real Housewives Of New York are at war over getting onTom D’Agostino‘s jock (exactly how many millions is he packing?!). Tom happens to be the current fiancé of Luann de Lesseps, once dated Ramona Singer (two or three times, or seven – depending on who you ask), and possibly spent the last decade playing undercover friends with benefits with Sonja Morgan. Disgusted Confused yet? I’m surprised these so-called classy ladies are so comfortable with hippie-hippie notions of free love!
New photo roundup time! Melissa Gorga threw a “Real Housewives Of New Jersey” Season 7 Premiere Shopping Event at the “envy by Melissa Gorga” boutique in Montclair and was joined by her daughter Antonia.
Coco Austin, La La Anthony, Somaya Reece and more turned out for the VH1 Hip Hop Honors.
Luann De Lesseps‘ so called “friends” have had a lot to say about her fiance, Tom D’Agostino on The Real Housewives of New York lately. Tom, who Luann plans to wed on New Year’s Eve in Palm Beach, hasn’t had much of a chance to defend himself though. Now he’s speaking out to clarify the rumors that he 1) dated Ramona Singer seriously and 2) hooked up with Sonja Morgan over a period of 10 years. The answer to both rumors, according to Tom? Nope, and nope.
“I don’t watch the show, but I get different pieces here and there, and a lot of the stuff I have heard? It’s so outlandish to me,” says Tom. Not sure I’m buying his line of not watching the show, but Sonja and Ramona spewing forth outlandish commentary? Absolutely! Then again, Tom could just be covering up his sordid past with the ladies. No one wants to be dubbed another Slade Smiley!
Carole Radziwillhas become a divisive presence on this season’s Real Housewives of New York. An early fan favorite, her star has visibly dimmed since her debut, due in part to the “mean girl” behavior some viewers perceive her displaying with her bestie, Bethenny Frankel. In this week’s (extreeeeeeemely long!) blog, Carole breaks down her relationship with all of the women, claiming she’s fine with all of them. And that she’s really, truly, for-real-this-time over her beef with Luann de Lesseps.
Beginning with Ramona Singer, Carole comments, “Ramona is a good friend. She’s good at being a friend, she’s a good friend to people who are her friends. She’s the kind of friend you want in your reality foxhole when martini glasses start flying. She might not have the best listening skills but her heart is in the right place even if that place is sometimes Oz with monkeys flying around and she’s the Tin Man, with a healthy dose of scarecrow.”
The Apologist may be making the rounds yet again, this time in her business life. Ramona Singer’s partnership to market hair extensions with Victoria Flores of Lux Beauty Club may be null and void after a brief business relationship. Why? Because of Ramona’s “diva behavior,” of course!
Ramona reportedly wanted her new hair extensions venture to feature prominently into this season’s Real Housewives of New York, but is the business dead before it even started? In an email to Ramona last week, a fed-up Flores apparently scolded the reality star about her entitled attitude. “You are not Angelina Jolie!” she barked. (Ahahahahaha! I have got to stop laughing in order to keep typing. This is just so, so – spot on!)
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.

I figured that watching yourself on reality TV would make you a very reflective person and give you inspiration to make self improvements or at the very least make yourself look better after saying embarrassing shit. Apparently this is not really the case when it comes to Luann de Lesseps.
For some reason Luann expressed that she thought that the other women on Real Housewives of New York were jealous of her engagement to Tom D’Agostino during the last episode. If anything, the women were just shocked that she got engaged so quickly to someone who was “dating” both Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan pretty recently. Time has passed and the episode has aired and Luann has not clarified her statements. Instead, she maintains that the other women are super envious of her love life…
