Check your thermometers because Hell has frozen over. Fans have spoken about a concept like this for years, imagining their favorite sharks all swimming in the same pond. The Bravo gods listened and filming has commenced on what is sure to be more drama than Turks & Caicos ever asked for. You will definitely see Ramona Singer, throwin’ bows like it’s Black Friday to get the best room. Luann de Lesseps will join Ramona on the adventure, and be on high alert to avoid any rogue bushes lurking in her path.
Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga went wheels up. This will probably be the last time Melissa is considered an All-Star in any respect, so thank you Jesus! Kyle Richards grabbed her Zohar and 19 caftans to make the trip, she will be joined by Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey upon landing. Sounds fun, right? Well, the streets are saying there will be a “surprise 8th guest” to make it a nice, even number. Just when you thought it was safe to go back to outdoor pedicures in a tropical environment… HIIIIIIIIIIIII!
Everyone is going through it and Brandi Glanville is no exception. Last time we saw Brandi, it seemed like she had been called in by Bravo to amp up the drama on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As usual, Brandi answered the call and presumably gave the producers exactly what they asked for. Denise Richards was a walking match and Brandi lit the fire that ultimately lead to a season of drama and Denise’s departure.
After ostensibly doing what she was told, it seems Brandi won’t make appearances on Season 11. You would think after having to bring someone in from the outside to pull a main storyline out of nowhere, she would have at least gotten a gift basket. But the world works in mysterious ways and like the rest of us, Brandi needs to get paid. So what’s a girl to do when the well is running dry and Bravo keeps sending her to voicemail? Real estate, baby.
It’s undeniable that Bethenny Frankel is one of the biggest success stories to come out of the Real Housewives of New York, or any city for that matter. She started off the show peddling her SkinnyGirl products in grocery stores and now she’s a boss businesswoman doing a million things at once.
You have to give credit where credit is due — Bravo definitely has some responsibility in “making” B who she is today. The show gave her a platform. She commanded that platform in an intelligent way, but it was truly her RHONY performance that made her such a hit. From screaming at Kelly Bensimon at Scary Island to fighting with Ramona Singer on the Brooklyn Bridge, B’s iconic housewives scenes definitely didn’t hurt her various businesses.
There’s no doubt that Kelly Bensimon was reality TV gold. However, no one has ever praised Kelly for her insights. Reading the room and behaving in accordance are not strengths of the former Real Housewives of New York cast member.
Just like many other people, Kelly posted on social media in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. However, it was mostly about Kelly, which it always seems to be with Kelly. It’s Kelly’s world and we’re all just living in it, or so she thinks.
Over the years, the ladies of Real Housewives of New York have grown up a lot. Sonja Morgan went from being the ex-wife of JP Morgan Chase bank guy to an International Fashion Lifestyle Brand. Luann de Lesseps went from The Countess to Cabaret star. Ramona Singer went from being an out-of-touch narcissist to an out-of-touch, narcissistic real estate agent. In just 12 seasons!
While we have witnessed countless ups and downs, one thing remains – these women will always share Harry Dubin. Harry is like the Slade Smiley of New York City. He was once married to Aviva Drescher. Since they divorced, he and Sonja have had an on and off thing for years. During this time, Harry and Luann have also hooked up. Most recently, Harry and Ramona were spotted making out. It’s a picture you can’t unsee. Oh, and he’s also been linked to Kelly Bensimon. Put simply, Harry is a pig RHONY staple.
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.)
Now that Dorinda Medley is gone from Real Housewives of New York, fans already want to know who’s replacing her. Well, that and they want to know if anyone else got fired.
Apparently, a possible addition to the cast is someone who is very familiar with scandal, Rachel Uchitel, one of the many women who was a mistress to Tiger Woods. What a claim to fame.
Real Housewives of New York OG Bethenny Frankel has a thriving business and she’s using her platform to help with important causes. In contrast, RHONY alum Kelly Bensimon is still talking trash about Bethenny a decade later.
Longtime fans will never forget when Kelly told Bethenny “I’m up here and you’re down here.” That seems like it would be a moment that she regrets at this point. However, that’s not the case. She fully stands by that comment and she’s doubling down on it. She’s also claiming that she legitimized RHONY, which is far from true.
