Real Housewives of New York

Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy’s Therapist Quit Due To Their “Level Of Conflict”

To say that Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel has had a rough time lately would be an understatement. Her on-and-off love Dennis Shields died from a suspected drug overdose in August of 2018. Fans of RHONY recently saw Bethenny confide in her co-stars that Dennis had proposed. He even gave her daughter, Bryn Hoppy, a ring before his untimely death. That is so sad!

Then came the health scares. Bethenny experienced a severe allergic reaction to fish, which landed her in the ICU. In fact, Bethenny’s new man, Paul Bernon, is credited with saving her life. She was also recently diagnosed with “leaky gut syndrome.”

RHONY-Bethenny-Frankel

Bethenny Frankel had a brief marriage to Jason Hoppy.  It spawned a spinoff, Bethenny Ever After, a daughter Bryn Hoppy and a bitter divorce that was finalized in 2016.   Their divorce proceedings lasted longer than the actual marriage.

During Bethenny’s time on Real Housewives of New York, viewers have seen how the ongoing bitterness with Jason has affected the Skinnygirl maven.  It never seems to end, since they share custody of now 8-year-old Bryn….and Bethenny is back in court requesting sole custody.   

Sonja Morgan blog

Sonja Morgan has an uncanny ability to navigate through all the drama of the Real Housewives Of New York.  She’s definitely got into some feuds with her castmates. However, she always manages to smooth things over with just the right amount of charm.

So naturally, because of this finesse, Sonja often finds herself in the middle of a feud.  And on this 11th Season of RHONY, it’s all about Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley.  The other ladies are, of course, taking sides with Bethenny Frankel on Team Countess while Ramona Singer has been backing her friend Dorinda.  This week on her blog, Sonja shared her opinions as the feud intensified and several lobsters went unaccounted for at Barbara Kavovit’s clambake.

Real Housewives of New York recap

Jill Zarin has not been a housewife for several years now, but that won’t stop her from chiming in on the drama. The last time we saw Jill (on the show), it was at the funeral of husband Bobby Zarin, who passed away from cancer. Since then, the former Real Housewives of New York star has a new love and finds herself popping up on a few episodes this season.

After somewhat recovering from her fallout with Bethenny Frankel, Jill maintains relationships with most of the current cast. While it is the blondes versus the brunettes in the Dorinda Medley, Luann de Lesseps saga, you won’t see Jill picking sides. With loyalty to both ladies, Jill shares her feelings on the divided cast.

Dorinda Medley Sides With Lobsters At Barbara Kavovits’s Clambake

While fur is flying in the 90210 courtesy of #PuppyGate, the Real Housewives of New York are sifting through the ashes of #ClambakeGate.  Newcomer Barbara Kavovit disinvited Dorinda Medley and Ramona Singer for the sake of Luann de Lessep’s newfound sobriety. At least Barbara thought she disinvited them, but Ramona wasn’t quite sure and showed up anyway.

Dorinda stayed away. That was her choice after she refused–at Barbara’s request–to apologize to Luann for her drunken heckling at Lu’s cabaret show.  It turned out Dorinda was still waiting for Luann’s apology to her for telling the press that she is an alcoholic.  An argument that started during the cast trip to Colombia last season when Dorinda famously said to Luann, “Why don’t you drink some more and get arrested?”

Luann de Lesseps - Real Housewives Of New York

Luann de Lesseps pleaded to “being fabulous” in her tagline for season 11 of the Real Housewives of New York. A ballsy nod to Countess Lu’s arrest in Palm Beach for being a hot drunk mess.  These days the Countess’s fabulousness consists of more feuding than etiquette, so there are plenty of candidates for the crown of “least favorite.”

Luann’s conflicts with Dorinda Medley and Ramona Singer have been a focus of the season so far. Both costars angered Luann by mocking her approach toward rehab and recovery.  For the moment, Luann and Bethenny Frankel appear to be on solid ground. But based on their past, there is some truth to Ramona calling it a friendship by “default.”  In past seasons, Luann and Carole Radziwill were mostly “all uncool.” It was a coldness rooted in Carole’s relationship with Adam Kenworthy, Luann’s former chef and the ex-boyfriend of her niece. Luann has even accused Tinsely Mortimer  of being a mean girl even though I don’t think Tins could hurt a fly. So, who is Lu’s least favorite Housewife?

Kim DePaola Says Teresa Giudice Cheats & Doesn’t Spend Time With Her Kids & Melissa Gorga Is “The Best Liar” She’s Ever Met

The last Real Housewives of New Jersey was a revival for the show. They didn’t even need to bring in Kim DePaola, aka Kim D, to make things interesting. However, she’s still doing that. It’s just not in front of the Bravo cameras.

She still has a ton of tea to spill on her enemies Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. She discussed Joe Giudice’s possible deportation to Italy. As expected, she had a lot to say about the Teresa cheating allegations. She even came for Joe Gorga. It was a glorified family affair- with a little Ramona Singer shade thrown in to mix things up.

Sonja Morgan

Pretty much every time Sonja Morgan is on Watch What Happens Live she reveals another celebrity who she’s had a… romantic past with.

Aside from that, Sonja discussed the last episode of Real Housewives of New York. She even dished on that Ramona Singer and Harry Dubin makeout session.
