There’s no doubt that Bethenny Frankel has made the most out of the Real Housewives of New York platform. However, she doesn’t want to be associated with the show that helped make her a household name.
During her recent interview with Tamron Hall, B wouldn’t even utter the words “Real Housewives of New York.” Instead she referred to it as “the show that I was previously on” which is some shade on its own, but she had even more to say than that.
The 2016 presidential election was central to Carole Radziwill’s storyline on Real Housewives of New York season 9.
She hosted a victory party for Hillary Clinton, which she planned before finding out the election results. Carole’s tagline even played into that election loss, with her quipping, “In the politics of friendship, I win the popular vote.”
Welcome back to the inaugural Park City Fashion Week — bringing high fashion for the very first time to Utah! After seeing the set-up in last week’s episode, I’m starting to wonder if this fashion show was specifically put on for The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. I mean, Whitney Rose is walking in the show. Meredith Marks is showcasing her jewelry line. And the runway is so short that the front row is essentially just Heather Gay, Jen Shah, Mary Cosby and a few other people. Not to mention the entire thing seems to culminate in Brooks Marks debuting his eponymous “fashion line” of name-branded athleisure wear. (And after seeing the show, I’m using that term loosely.)
The best part of the fashion show is that many elements are giving me vintage RHONY vibes. Watching Jen‘s icy stare as Mary tries to small talk her way through being seated directly next to her nemesis is the purest recreation of Bethenny Frankel and Kelly Bensimon doing the exact same thing more than a decade ago at New York Fashion Week. (And if you don’t know who’s who in this comparison, go back and watch Season 3 in the Big Apple STAT.)
Well damn, if this isn’t the pot calling the kettle black. I guess Bethenny Frankel has taken some time off from saving the world and decided to go in on one of her colleagues. I thought she was supposed to be busy with all of these new and amazing career opportunities but maybe she’s having a little holiday break.
Since bailing on Real Housewives of New York, Bethenney pops up now and again. Unfortunately she’s usually taking time out of her hectic schedule to slam someone else. Most recently it was Andy Cohen, who she said “rewards bad behavior“, which is hypocrisy at it’s finest. Until now, that is. Bethenney is currently speaking out about plastic surgery and blasting Ramona Singer. That’s right darlings, Bethenney is coming for someone who changed their face.
Eboni K. Williams will join Real Housewives of New York. Eboni, who is a television host and attorney, is the first Black New York Housewife.
“I’m excited to join this legendary franchise as the first Black housewife. Can’t wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn’t been seen before,” Eboni stated. Eboni has already confirmed that the issue of race will be addressed on the show.
Carole Radziwill hasn’t stopped talking about Real Housewives of New York since she left. After her exit, Carole used every play in the petty ex- handbook to keep the attention. She has spontaneously accused her former co-stars of doing hard drugs while filming. She went after Andy Cohen for taking Bethenny Frankel’s side during their friendship feud. And since we all remember that she had the most unnecessary grudge with Tinsley Mortimer, let’s not forget how she flamed her publicly too.
I don’t really get why Carole is still trying to get into the RHONY mix, but I’m here for all the details. And like a cat to a couch from the 60’s, she just. won’t. quit.
Life was much more simple when Real Housewives of New York debuted its first season. Bethenny Frankel was living in a less-than-stellar apartment with a bald man named Jason, trying to make a Skinnygirl logo with a Comic Sans font with help from Alex McCord.
She got chastised by Luann de Lesseps for introducing her as “Luann” instead of “Countess de Lesseps.” It was the good ole days in many respects. But, obviously, that era didn’t last forever. Bethenny became a multi-millionaire and superstar businesswoman/philanthropist. And, apparently, she became a lot less funny, at least according to Gizelle Bryant from Real Housewives of Potomac.
