The friendship between Real Housewives of New York stars Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel was unexpected, and quite interesting. It was a lovefest back in 2016, with Bethenny declaring that she would exit RHONY before she would break-up with Carole. Bethenny missed the mark with that prediction.
During Season 10, their friendship imploded, leaving both women bitter. The RHONY reunion was a nail-biter, with both Carole and Bethenny fighting over who slammed who on the show. In one memorable moment, Carole screamed at host Andy Cohen, “Shut up, Andy. You’re so full of sh*t!” Later, Carole claimed that Andy was Team Bethenny during the ladies’ disputes.
The news of Bethenny Frankel and Paul Bernon’s engagement broke almost simultaneously with the first Season 13 trailer of the Real Housewives of New York. It didn’t exactly seem like a coincidence, with the cast thinking that B was being petty with the timing. However, she hasn’t acknowledged the big news, until now.
Her engagement news came simultaneously with reports that her 8-year divorce from hell with Jason Hoppy is finally over. And finally, the SkinnyGirl mogul is free to move on and didn’t waste any time.
If you are a die-hard fan of the Real Housewives of New York, you got whiplash from all of the news surrounding the cast this week. Tinsley Mortimer and Scott Kluth called off their engagement, and she might be eyeing a RHONY return. The Season 13 trailer dropped. And after 8 years, Bethenny Frankel finalized her divorce from Jason Hoppy and is engaged to Paul Bernon.
While it could be a coincidence, it was fishy that B’s engagement news broke almost simultaneously with the trailer dropping. Bethenny’s divorce has been so public, why wouldn’t she want the official end to be the same way? Plus, if she is engaged to Paul, she knows that’s the kind of happily ever after news that breaks headlines. So it seems like she was riding the RHONY news wave, and some of her former castmates think so too.
Tinsley Mortimer departed from the Real Housewives of New York to chase her fairytale
delusions fantasies with Scott Kluth in Chicago. And it was going well — they were engaged and had puppies that they treated more like children. And then, the fantasy fell apart when the two called off their engagement earlier this month.
The RHONY It-Girl left EVERYTHING to be with the Coupon King — her home, her friends and her job. And now it seems like it was all for nothing and she was apparently “blindsided” by the split. Meanwhile, Scott claims they’ve been over for months and Tins wasn’t getting the memo. Honestly, I could see both sides, but Tinsley did pull out some receipts from Valentine’s Day that signal they were an item quite recently.
Despite not being on the air, the Real Housewives of New York is dominating headlines this week. The Season 13 trailer just dropped, featuring the show’s newest (and first Black) housewife Eboni K. Williams. Bethenny Frankel is finally divorced from her ex-
demon husband Jason Hoppy and engaged to her boo Paul Bernon. And Scott Kluth and Tinsley Mortimer broke up, and won’t stop telling their different versions of the story to the press.
And apparently, Tins and her friends aren’t going to back down with the Scott bashing. They’re sticking to the story that he “blindsided” her with the breakup and ran to the tabloids immediately after, while he claims they’ve been off for months. But now, Team Tinsley has more proof.
Real Housewives of New York alum Bethenny Frankel hasn’t had it easy when it comes to relationships. On the show, we’ve seen Jason Hoppy put her through the wringer with a nasty divorce. And she was hit hard by the unexpected death of her on-and-off boyfriend Dennis Shields.
After her RHONY days were over, the SkinnyGirl founder seemingly found love with a new boo Paul Bernon, despite a breakup or two thrown in between. Now, B is officially moving into a new chapter in her life. It could mean wedding bells are on the horizon.
In October 2020, the news broke that Bethenny Frankel and Paul Bernon split up after two years together. Other than that update, there didn’t seem to be much more to it. There were no rumblings of drama or scandal of any kind.
She even insisted, “not everything has to end badly.” Well, apparently, the romance didn’t actually “end” after all. Or if it did, it wasn’t over for long.
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.
