The Real Housewives of New York City’sresident razor-tongued go-getter, Bethenny Frankelopened up this week about the never-ending saga of her tempestuous pending divorce toJason Hoppy. The ‘skinny gal’ reveals how she is pretty content with her life as is, despite the occasional bricks that are flung her way. In her usual matter-of-fact way of seeing things, Bethenny states, “Life is roses, it’s got petals and it’s got thorns,” and that through it all, she still manages to get out of bed each morning with a purpose.
The gritty multimillionaire reality star discussed how her divorce has been such a toxic experience for her, she likened it to “a drop of poison in the ocean.” Bethenny went on to explain her uncompromisingly direct statement. “Am I feeling it? No. But it’s there. I mean, it doesn’t weigh down on me every minute of the day, it’ll flair up sometimes, like when people have arthritis or something, but it’s there. It’s chronic. It’s not that emotionally draining, it does come up at times; you have to really just be very zen about it. You have to just say, ‘This is all supposed to be happening, it makes me stronger.”
The Real Housewives of New York City’sSonja Morgan reportedly took a powder to luxuriate at the Canyon Ranch Health Resort & Luxury Spa in Lenox, Mass. to escape the shade that was aimed at her from one pretty miffed castmate Bethenny Frankel. It seems Bethenny, who created her $100 million Skinnygirl low-calorie cocktail line will have some unwelcome competition from Sonja, who has her Tipsy Girl booze line practically ready to roll.
The caflama-filled situation involving the two women has now spilled over from real life to the small screen. It seems Bethenny has arranged a Mexico trip and the adventure will, of course, be fodder for the Bravo reality series. However, Sonja is reportedly fretting that her invite for the trip will mysteriously get lost in the mail. And the invite just might never reach Sonja’s hands.
When Heather joined RHONY back in 2012 she already had a lengthy and quite impressive resume. She was the founding design director for the Sean “Diddy” Combs label, and had also worked as a stylist with the likes of such A-listers as Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé. After nearly 20 years in the biz, Heather decided to make some moves for herself. She had been noticing that there was a dire need for shapewear that was sexy, comfy and “yummie,” so she stepped out on a limb and launched her own line called Yummie, a brand of shape wear that has a patented three-panel system. The company has now expanded to include bras, panties, denim, leggings, active and the latest and greatest, loungewear.
All season long we have had to listen to the Real Housewives of New York City’sAviva Drescher talk nonsense about asthma, ghostwriters and her father’s sex life. Now, finally she is talking about something important — her work with other amputees.
We have all seen it coming, Bravo has been teasing it from the beginning of the season. In next week’s season finale, Aviva — for who knows what reason — removes her prosthetic leg and hurls it across a crowded restaurant. So what better way to work up to that pivotal seen, then by showing Aviva helping one of the survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing get fitted for a new prosthetic leg. Oh, Bravo, we love your editing!
Oh, Sonja. Did you not watch the Real Housewives of New Yorklast night? What you were is not "buzzed", it was wasted. (And according to the previews for next week things just keep going downhill for you.) Instead of denying, you should own it. We love drunk Sonja!! At least you are — normally — fun and loving as opposed to angry and ready to throw a wine glass.
Aside from claiming to have just been "buzzed', Sonja Morgan shares some interesting insights in her latest Bravo blog. And judging from the writing — she definitely wrote this herself and I totally appreciate that!
If you didn't catch last week's Real Housewives of New York City, Carole Radziwill breaks it down for you in her latest Bravo blog. She touches on the amazing array of nicknames the girls have for Ramona Singer, the hilarious — and ridiculous — questions that Ramona thought were appropriate for Carole to ask prospective interns and the funeral that was held for Sonja's dog, Millou.
Heather Thomson and LuAnn DeLesseps met up with Kristen Taekman following her sit-down with Ramona over her tendency to throw wine and wine glasses at her. What better way to get the goods than straight from Kristen. Although Carole wasn't there, she was more than happy to share her opinions on having a sit-down with Ramona.
Rumors are swirling that the Real Housewives of New York City's wine glass throw meltdown was not as bad as it looked/sounded on TV. I don't think that it would come as a surprise to anyone to know that parts of reality TV are edited for dramatic effect. Now we have sources saying that the wine glass throw heard round the world was not as bad as it appeared.
A source tells Tom Murro, "Bravo adds sound effects to things. The production company added the loud sound of shattered glass when it was PLASTIC NOT GLASS that was thrown by Ramona at Kristen. And that she was not cut, but underneath her lip was only slightly bruised from the plastic glass." Very interesting….
