It was a shock when “OG” Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel decided to ditch the show after Season 11. After the death of her on-and-off boyfriend Dennis Shields in 2018, a heartbroken Bethenny had found love again.
Her new love, Paul Bernon, literally saved her life during a scary allergic reaction. Bethenny’s new man is all about privacy, so her decision to leave RHONY might not have been difficult. Or else, Luann de Lessep’s relentless obsession with her cabaret show might have been a factor.
No one can ever accuse Bravo’s Andy Cohen of not dreaming big. He has his sights on nabbing a royally big name to join Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Andy already has one Housewife with a title. He has Countess Luann de Lesseps on Real Housewives of New York.
If Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub had made it down the aisle with her 21st fiancé, Olivier Maier, she would have received a title as well. Danielle would have been a Duchess if she had successfully
trapped wed Olivier, who is the Duke of Provence.
Yeah, she’s drinking (again), Luann! After a long and arduous couple of years, Luann de Lesseps admitted that she’s started drinking alcohol again following the completion of her probation in 2019, and I mean, is anyone surprised?
The Real Housewives of New York City star opened up about her decision to kick off 2020 by imbibing in a new interview on New Year’s Day.
Real Housewives of New York fans have watched Tinsley Mortimer and boyfriend Scott Kluth make up and break up
millions of multiple times. Tinsley just wants to be a wife and mother. RHONY viewers even watched Tinsley try on wedding dresses when she wasn’t even engaged. One issue that plagued the couple seemed to be distance. Scott works in Chicago, and Tinsley is based in New York.
Now Tinsley can wear the wedding gown of her dreams, because Scott popped the question. On November 24, Scott proposed on the steps of the Chicago Water Tower while Christmas carolers sang in the background.
Real Housewives of New York fans have had to accept that Season 12 is going to be very different than last season. Bethenny Frankel, one of the “OG” Housewives, left RHONY abruptly before filming for Season 12 began. But don’t worry, people. Luann de Lesseps isn’t singing sad songs about Bethenny leaving.
It turns out that Luann is pleased that Bethenny left, so that Bethenny would stop hogging all the attention. Of course she is! Now we can even more time devoted to cabaret and Luann’s glitzy life as a star of the stage.
When I heard that Bethenny Frankel was leaving the Real Housewives of New York, I was a little sad. Bethenny can be audacious, self-absorbed and always seems to be surrounded by chaos, but she was also a good fit for the show. She was often spot-on in her assessments of her castmates and wasn’t afraid to address issues like Luann de Lesseps’ cabaret obsession or Ramona Singer’s rudeness.
One of Bethenny’s most admirable traits is her business acumen. Within a few years of joining RHONY, Bethenny started her Skinny Girl brand and later sold off the cocktail division of her business, reportedly for big bucks. Last season, Bethenny admitted that her life was overwhelming her and that she was considering simplifying things by selling a part of her company. Over the summer, Bethenny announced she was leaving the show to focus on her daughter, philanthropy and a production partnership with Mark Burnett. And with a more recent announcement, Bethenny continues to focus on her Skinny Girl brand.
There has been a lot of buzz about the Real Housewives of New York since the end of last season. Bethenny Frankel’s announcement that she was leaving RHONY left fans wondering what would happen to the show. Part of the answer came in the form of Leah McSweeney joining the cast.
Recently, there has been even more chatter surrounding the New York ladies. Sonja Morgan was a BravoCon no-show the very same weekend she was allegedly kicked out of a Philadelphia gay bar for bad behavior. Tinsley Mortimer became engaged to on-again-off-again boyfriend Scott Kluth and took a break from filming. And now Luann de Lesseps is weighing in on what the new season will be like–and she is throwing a little shade at Bethenny in the process.
After three seasons of torturing us with her desire to get married and have a baby, Tinsley Mortimer is engaged to Scott Kluth. This is great news, right? Well, Scott lives in Chicago and Tinsley is a cast member on Real Housewives of New York. How is that gonna work? Is it going to work?
Tinsley skipped out on the annual RHONY cast vacation in Mexico to celebrate her engagement with Scott in Chicago. Wasn’t this technically a work trip? How could Tinsley just skip it? Was she filming scenes in Chicago? Is she just done with the show, as Luann de Lesseps said?
