This story has been circulating all weekend, but some new details have come to light. But, let’s take it from the top for anyone who needs to catch up. Queer Eye star Bobby Berk is calling out a Real Housewives of New York cast member for bad behavior.
He accuses the woman of stealing from him before he became a reality star himself. He doesn’t name the New York Housewife who did him wrong, but he did share a lot of details that help narrow down the possibilities.
But, that’s kind of the point though, isn’t it? We haven’t learned a single thing about Elyse, yet here she is at events with zero introduction and zero backstory. All we know is that she’s listed as “Ramona’s Friend” when she pops up. That seems rather ironic now though. With a friend like Ramona, who needs enemies?
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.
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.
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 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 membersJill Zarin and BethennyFrankel.
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.
Bethenny Frankel has left the building, or has she? The former cast member chose to exit the Real Housewives of New York City in August 2019. She later said that the show is uninspiring, while cast member Luann de Lesseps believes the air is now more breathable without such a large presence as Bethenny. While Bethenny was known to be a fan favorite, she also caused polarizing opinions – some loved her and followed her loyally, while others did not have the highest opinions of her.
Bethenny and Luann have had a chaotic past. Bethenny has previously stated that Luann sleeps with everybody, and also called her a “sicko” during former seasons. Afterward, when Luann was arrested and then went to rehab due to her drinking, Bethenny began a crusade to be by Luann’s side. Luann has admitted that Bethenny was a great support for her. Currently, it seems as though there is a battle of the egos and the friction has resumed again.
