Many people doubted that Luann de Lesseps could make a cabaret show work, but she’s had way more success with that than anyone has ever imagined. Sure, she’s not the best singer, but she knows that, and she really doesn’t care. She just loves having control of the microphone.
Now, the Real Housewives of New York OG wants to brush up on her dance moves. She wants to join the Dancing With the Stars cast for a super sweet reason that actually isn’t rooted in the cabaret… well, not completely.
Since quitting Real Housewives of New York in 2019, Bethenny Frankel has launched a podcast and is casting for a new reality show.
But Bethenny has a fun new hobby–dissing other celebrities. First, the RHONY alum took aim at Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s hit song “WAP.” The song is raunchy, and Bethenny wasn’t happy with the song’s content.
Apparently, Tyra Banks didn’t want Real Housewives on Dancing With the Stars anymore. Reportedly, she “made it clear that she didn’t want any more ‘Housewives’ in her ballroom… Tyra has never been a fan of the ‘Housewives,’ but the real reason she doesn’t want them on her show is that Bethenny Frankel, NeNe Leakes and Teresa Giudice do not make headlines anymore.”
Considering that this website has many headlines about Bethenny, NeNe, and Teresa, we know that’s not the case. Well, Bethenny caught wind of these reported comments and clapped back on Twitter.
Pretty much all I remember about America’s Next Top Model is that Shandi Sullivan had sex with someone who wasn’t her boyfriend in a hot tub night one. I can’t seem to remember important dates or facts but this is somehow burned in my memory bank. The real point, however, is that I didn’t watch ANTM. That reason was Tyra Banks.
In the early years of ANTM she also had a talk show, Tyra. It was focused on “women’s issues” and often featured women from ANTM. That way, Tyra could make Tyra all about herself. Now, for whatever reason, she’s hosting Dancing With the Stars and banning any and all Housewives.
Holla! I will admit that I loved Heather Thomson when she joined Real Housewives of New York during Season 5. She was smart and quick to call anyone out on their bullsh*t. I loved seeing her friendship with fellow RHONY newbie Carole Radziwell blossom.
Viewers may recall watching Heather try to help co-star Sonja Morgan launch her toaster oven line. And who can forget Heather refusing to invite Ramona Singer to the cast trip to London? But after three seasons, Heather was tired of the fake drama and exited the series.
Did Tiger King drop on Netflix a lifetime ago? Maybe it’s just that time is no longer a thing in 2020. Still, I will be forever grateful to the makers of Tiger King for delivering twisted entertainment guaranteed to make anyone forget about reality for a while. I know I’m not the only one. Even Hollywood is extending this crazy train with a movie version starring Nicolas Cage.
It also looks like the stars of the real Tiger King will be making more headlines too. For instance, I did not feed my husband to the tigers for money Carol Baskin was just cast on Dancing with the Stars. Then there’s creep-show Jeff Lowe’s reality show. As for the Tiger King himself? Well Joe Exotic is hoping for a pardon from our President, but that’s only if he doesn’t die in the next to 2-3 months.
A lot of people would be better off not being on reality TV. Jana Kramer is one of them. For the readers scratching their heads, Jana was a top 4 finalist on Season 23 of Dancing with the Stars. She also ruined the later seasons of One Tree Hill by playing an annoying character desperate to ruin Brook Davis’ relationship with Julien. Today, she co-hosts the podcast, “Whine Down,” with cheating husband, Michael Caussin. She’s also a country singer, so triple threat!
Jana tends to over-share on social media. In theory, this should make her a fantastic Housewife. Michael, an ex-NFL player, is Jana’s third husband. In addition to the podcast, they share two young children. The couple married in 2015 and separated in 2016 because of Michael’s “massive sex addition.” They renewed their vows in 2017. But a minute later Jana was airing their dirty laundry on the podcast and blaming hot nannies for breaking up marriages. Obviously, the best way for Jana and Michael to slow down this rollercoaster is to audition for a Bravo reality show.
