Alex Rodriguez

Danni Baird Southern Charm

The current season of Southern Charm wasn’t the best. The same discussions got dragged out week after week. However, I give the cast, crew, and editors the props for bringing it all together to create episodes during the coronavirus pandemic. Thankfully, the reunion has more than made up for that. However, I really wish they were filming the show right now. The off-season accusations against Madison LeCroy are ten times as interesting as the current season. Madison dropped text message screenshots and a selfie with Jay Cutler, claiming that they slept together.

After that, Austen Kroll and Craig Conover accused Madison of dating married men and professional athletes at the reunion. Then, based on social media evidence, it seemed like one of those guys was Alex Rodriguez, who’s engaged to Jennifer Lopez. Andruw Jones also appeared in the gossip about Madison’s alleged hookups. Then, Madison addressed rumors about hooking up with Eric Decker, who is married to Jessie James Decker. And now, Madison’s frenemy Danni Baird is confirming some piping hot tea about Madison.

Madison LeCroy

The Southern Charm fans are having a field day on the internet lately. There is so much chatter about Madison LeCroy that Erika Jayne is probably breathing a sigh of relief that the Bravo fans have been monopolized by all the Madison rumors. Scratch that, she’s probably taking another thirst trap photo and brainstorming a tone deaf Instagram caption at this moment.

First, Madison shared those text screenshots, alleging that she slept with Jay Cutler. And a selfie to prove that they have actually hung out beyond FaceTime and direct messages. Then, the reunion aired. Craig Conover and Austen Kroll accused Madison of sleeping with married men and professional athletes. Then, the receipts (and allegations) started to trickle in, linking Madison to Alex Rodriguez. Yes, Jennifer Lopez’s future ex fiance. And, now there are even more Madison romance rumors.

Madison LeCroy

That Southern Charm Season 7 reunion was better than every single episode from the entire season. Craig Conover came out swinging, accusing Madison LeCroy of cheating on Austen Kroll with married men and ex-MLB players, a story that Austen backed up as well.

For some reason (probably a legal issue), they bleeped out the name of one of the guys in question, but it sounded like a 2-syllable name to me. Andy Cohen remarked that the former MLB player they were talking about  was “very famous” and “married.” Craig also mentioned that the guy lived in Miami. Sure, Miami is a great place for many former pro athletes to retire, so that clue doesn’t exactly narrow things down. However, the internet sleuths came through with some receipts and allegations.

The entrepreneurial waters might be getting a lot more dramatic soon because Bethenny Frankel has added another reality show gig to her growing roster. The Real Housewives of New York star and Skinnygirl mogul will be joining the Shark Tank panel this fall on ABC.

In addition to landing a real estate spinoff on Bravo with friend and Million Dollar Listing NY star Fredrik Eklund, Bethenny will now be investing in – or trampling on – the dreams of would be entrepreneurs far and wide! In addition to Shark Tank’s standard panel, Bethenny will guest star when only four of the six “sharks” are present.

In what can only be described as a major burn, a rep for Alex Rodriguez is now publicly denying any claims/reports of a romance or flirting between Alex and Kelly Bensimon.

This all stems from a report that magically found its way in the NYPost on Tuesday. The report not only claimed Alex was heavily flirting with the Real Housewives of New York City star, it also alleged they went on a date the next day.

“The whole story about Kelly and A-Rod is absolute, unadulterated hogwash,” his rep tells UsWeekly. “There were 1,500 people at that party at Wall, and Kelly was one of many that were clamoring to meet him,” a source added.

Ouch, but the burns did not end there. Another insider close to the pro baseball player added that Kelly “is not exactly his material,” calling their meeting “an accidental collision at a party.”

Seems like A-Rod’s on-again, off-again girlfriend Cameron Diaz has nothing to worry about.

In other Kelly news, she also makes an appearance in the latest issue of In Touch magazine during which she tells the mag she wants some feminine curves. “I don’t want to be a stick figure,” she said. “I want to look like a woman.” Judging from her latest bikini photos, she has a long way to go. A scan of the In Touch story is below.

And just for old times sake, below are some tweets made by Kelly within the last 48 hours –

“gotta run, and do my head stand. its gonna be a crazy day, i need to be prepared.”

#ifIHadSuperPowers i’d erase the ability to be mean.”

The last tweet was likely made in reference to the UsWeekly story as it was posted after the story was published.

TELL US – DO YOU FEEL BAD/EMBARRASSED FOR KELLY?

It seems reality star Bethenny Frankel is starting to second guess her decision to do her 4th reality show/disasterSkating With The Stars.

Now in it’s third week, SWTS can best be described as nothing short of a catastrophe. In addition to its bad host, bad judges, multiple injuries, and unknown stars, the show is also experiencing disastrous ratings that only continue to decline.

Just how bad are the ratings? Only 6 million viewers tuned in last week in comparison to the 19 millions viewers that routinely watched Dancing With The Stars. The ratings took an even bigger hit last night as only 5 million viewers tuned in.

“It really is,” Bethenny told reporters last week when asked if doing the show has proven difficult. “It’s like the Mafia, and I can’t get out because I’m committed and I love [my partner Ethan Burgess] and I have to do this now for him. But there are days that I’m like, ‘Why the heck did I do this’? But ultimately it is really fun.”

When it comes to the harsh criticism she has received from the judges, Bethenny joked, “I thought I was a badass. I thought I was phenomenal. I had the best time. I am the woman Johnny Weir wants to be and he clearly has an issue with that.”

And just last week, a fan asked Bethenny on Twitter if she wanted to get voted off. This was her reply – “I Love my partner&we pee laughing so I want to stay for that.plus grt for his career.”

Moving right along. The NYPost is also reporting today that Real Housewives of NYC nut star Kelly Bensimon was seen flirting with pro baseball player Alex Rodriguez in Miami.

According to the Post, a witness states Alex “had his arm ’round Kelly and they were flirting.” The two were then seen browsing art at the Convention Center the next day. Surely this story wasn’t leaked to the press by Kelly’s people.

And in a strange twist, the NYDailyNews reported back in April 2009 that A-Rod and Bethenny were hooking up, something Bethenny denied back then.

TELL US – SHOULD BETHENNY HAVE SAID NO TO SWTS? THOUGHTS ON THE KELLY & A-ROD STORY?

The Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny Frankel has a new man in her life, and is going public with it. Bethenny is pictured above with her new boyfriend who according to this NY Times article is named Jason Hoppy.

Guess those A-rod rumors were simply rumors. Bethenny talked about Jason to the NYTimes, “My friends call him ‘Tenjune’ — that’s his name,” Ms. Frankel said, referring to the nightclub in the meatpacking district where the couple met. Mr. Hoppy, who says he works in real estate, saw Ms. Frankel getting attention from photographers, he said, and walked up and said something unprintable. She liked that.

Hoping this will be a lasting relationship for Miss Bethenny.

The NYDailyNews is reporting that The Yankees slugger was seen stepping out this weekend in Miami with The Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel.

Alex Rodriguez and Bethenny allegedly shared an intimate dinner at a local restaurant on Friday night. Rodriguez then dropped off Frankel at the Fontainebleau Hotel around 12:30 a.m. Saturday. A source told The News’ Gatecrasher column last month that Frankel and A-Rod hooked up “three months ago” but that, after quickly rounding the bases, “A-Rod cut it off.”

Bethenny has laughed off these rumors saying, “We’re madly in love; we’re engaged. I fly to Miami every weekend. I’m in the front row when they’re playing. I never felt this way.” Before insisting, “No, I’ve never been in the same room with him,” adding, “Can it be George Clooney? Can’t it just be the celebrity I want to be aligned with?”
