Bethenny Frankel

We are truly living in unprecedented times. As we were all healing from the coronavirus pandemic, America is now mourning the death of George Floyd. While protests have gone on in all 50 states, many celebrities have taken to social media to express their opinions, their hurt, and have shared ways in which we all can help.

One celebrity who is always raw and honest is former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel. Bethenny is always very open about her opinions and feelings on current events going on in the world. She has done some amazing work with her BStrong foundation to help people during times of crisis. Most recently, Bethenny delivered 1 million protective suits to New York, among other efforts to combat the coronavirus. And now, Bethenny is expressing her feelings on George Floyd’s death and the protests.

Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps

Money may not be able to buy you class, but life is most certainly a cabaret. At least it is for Luann de Lesseps on The Real Housewives of New York City.

For the past three seasons, we’ve watched the Countess shove her cabaret show down our throats. Now, in a new interview, her RHONY cast mate Ramona Singer is opening up about what she and the other ‘Wives really think of Luann‘s Jovani-filled cabaret dreams.

Carole Radziwill Says Bethenny Frankel Was “So Mean To Everyone” On Real Housewives Of New York; Shades “Bravo Invented” Friendship With Tinsley Mortimer

It’s been two seasons since Carole Radziwill left The Real Housewives of New York City. However, it looks like our favorite Writer Girl isn’t quite done looking back on her last season on the show.

In a new exchange on social media, Carole cheekily revisited her friendship-ending feud with Bethenny Frankel and once again threw Tinsley Mortimer under the bus in the process.

Ramona Singer Predicts Bethenny Frankel Won’t Return To Real Housewives Of New York City, Says Jill Zarin “Just Doesn’t Gel” With The Cast Anymore

There’s no denying The Real Housewives of New York City has been different this season without Bethenny Frankel. The Skinnygirl founder’s abrupt exit as filming began on Season 12 left the rest of the Housewives totally blindsided.

Of course, Ramona Singer has had no shortage of opinions about her former castmate leaving the show (for a second time). In a new interview, the OG opened up about whether she thinks Bethenny is really done with RHONY for good and managed to shade former OG Jill Zarin in the process.

Dorinda Medley Feels Ramona Singer Has Been “Insensitive” After Break-Up With John Mahdessian

Well, Season 12 of Real Housewives of New York might have lost Bethenny Frankel, but anything alcoholic is now officially part of the cast. At the conclusion of these episodes, I always feel a slight desire to consult Betty Ford and begin a green juice cleanse. On the bright side, Leah McSweeney has filled any remaining gaps in Bethenny’s legacy, though viewers probably miss the repetitive product placement they were subjected to for years, #skinnygirlbybravo.

While the ladies navigate brief periods of being sober, some have experienced life changes. Dorinda Medley has been struggling under the pressure of ending her relationship with longtime boyfriend, John Mahdessian. What’s more, she has found herself triggered by memories of late husband, Richard. One would think Dorinda’s tribe of girlfriends would lend support during her time of need, but according to Dorinda, that has not been the case. In fact, Dorinda feels one friend in particular has been especially insensitive. Gosh, I wonder who it could be?

#WeSayThanks To Reality Stars Giving Back During Coronavirus

Reality Tea is proud to announce that we’re collaborating with our fellow Evolve Media LLC websites for #WeSayThanks. This is campaign to thank and raise money for essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

#WeSayThanks coincides with Police Week, Public Works Week, and National Medical Services Week. We have also created a limited-edition T-shirt, with the promise to donate $5 from each sale to charities that support our essential workers and their families during this difficult time.

#WeSayThanks

We understand that the pandemic has affected everyone in some way or another. Charity should be about contributing what you are comfortable with and able to do. It is completely understood that not all of our readers are in the market for a philanthropic t-shirt. That is completely OK! Whether or not you purchase a shirt, we would love it if you joined our initiative by telling us who you are thankful for in the comments section of this article or on Twitter with the hashtag #WeSayThanks. A simple “thanks” goes a long way.

We would also like to thank some reality TV stars who have given back during the coronavirus pandemic. And, of course, we want to thank everyone who has given their time and money during this time, especially those who are not in the public eye. We appreciate you!

Elyse Slaine Real Housewives of New York RHONY

Elyse Slaine is a bit of a mystery on this season of Real Housewives of New York City. She just showed up one day with very little explanation as to who she is or what she is doing there.  She appears in almost every group scene with no mention as to who actually invited her. According to Elyse, that is because she was never meant to be on the show, she really did just show up one day to film with Ramona Singer. Production liked her and asked her to keep showing up. That explains why her introduction has been so awkward, but it still makes her come off as sort of creepy. She is mostly just there, silently staring in the background, kind of like some judgy Upper East Side Morticia Adams.

Anytime Elyse does speak, she talks very quietly and calmly, and almost always states the most rational opinion. It is as though she is doing her best to come across as the voice of reason. What she is really saying is, “Please do not think that I am crazy like these women, listen to how calm I am.” And she definitely seems like a smart, put-together woman. But just the fact that she has been friends with Ramona for years implies that there must be some cray cray going on behind her sleek facade. Now she is even claiming that she introduced OG cast members Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel.

This Week’s Schedule Of Throwback Bravo Episodes- Real Housewives Of DC, Timber Creek Lodge, & More

Sometimes, life is a matter of perspective. Instead of being “stuck” at home because of the pandemic, it might feel better to view the situation as being “safe” at home instead.

Of course, what’s going on the world right now should not be minimized, not by any means. Nevertheless, a lot of people with “non-essential” jobs are at home. Some are homeschooling their children. Others have turned their living rooms into an office. Most of the people who are reading this have been watching a lot of reality TV shows- in the background, while fulfilling responsibilities, of course. Well, Bravo knows that fans are looking for premium programming. And, no, I’m not trying to re-watch an episode of a show that I just watched last week.
