Back in August, Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny Frankel shocked us all when she announced that she was leaving the show ahead of Season 12. Why Bethenny? Why?
She is in a happy relationship with Paul Bernon, who is very private and probably doesn’t want to add appearing on a reality show to his resume. There is some hope for the future, since Bethenny left the show before and then later triumphantly returned.
How have you been enjoying the first weeks of the Real Housewives of Dallas? The ladies have been serving up a little drama so far and are already in the middle of a cast trip to Mexico. To be honest, I could have watched the last couple of episodes just for the incredible cliff-side setting of Kary Brittingham’s family vacation home. That, and D’Andra Simmon’s epic drunk scenes last week that give reigning Housewife champs Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan and Brandi Glanville a run for their money!
One of the continuing themes of the show last season was the ongoing strife in the long-standing friendship between LeeAnne Locken and D’Andra. The two hit a jarring speed bump when D’Andra alleged that LeeAnne’s relationship with fiancé and now husband Rich Emberlin was not what it seemed. And in her confessionals last season, D’Andra made accusations of Rich being unfaithful to LeeAnne. Shockingly, that made the usually calm, cool and collected LeeAnne a little hot under her 12,000 ways-to-wear-it L’Infinity dress. Now, LeeAnne is speaking out about the situation.
When it comes to real estate, the Real Housewives have given fans a vast array of both gorgeous McMansions.
Recently, Andy Cohen threw some subtle shade about Housewives who rent their real estate. He also opened up about which ‘Wives’ homes are his personal favorites.
Erika Jayne is one of the most enigmatic stars of the Real Housewives franchise. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills glam diva is amongst the most private–OK–maybe the most private of the Housewives. Getting real emotion, feelings or depth out of the sometimes volatile Erika is about as easy as getting a straight answer from your cable company.
One thing Erika is very open about, however, is her love of performing. Before becoming a Housewife, Ms. Jayne racked up eight number 1 hits on the US Dance Club Charts. Which is quite a feat, no matter how you look at it. Now, Erika is gearing up for a career accomplishment that might even eclipse her dance club success.
Do we really expect anyone on a Bravo show to get along? No sir! Real Housewives of New York might be down one protagonist, but that doesn’t mean everyone will magically stop arguing. Gone are the days where viewers expect to see lavish homes and luxurious vacations, not spoiled by errant fighting and drunken spats. Fortunately Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer have already been spotted having words at an anti-bullying event. Now new cast member Leah McSweeney is supposedly cutting her teeth in the East Coast Fight Club.
Luann de Lesseps recently headlined a benefit called STOMP Out Bullying, so naturally a shouting match occurred. We already know Dorinda and Tinsley had a blowout during the soirée, regardless of the inappropriate environment. Now with reports saying Leah was involved in the melee as well, Luann admits she has also had a run in with the new kid on the block.
Real Housewives of New York star Dorinda Medley has made some big changes in her life. Dorinda changed her living arrangement and moved to a new three-bedroom pad in Manhattan. The new apartment has plenty of room for all of Dorinda’s holiday decorations. I love that Dorinda is a holiday decoration hoarder!
Long-time boyfriend John Mahdessian had visions of moving in with Dorinda in her new place. But Dorinda didn’t invite him. Can he at least get a drawer? After all, John is the dry cleaner to the rich and famous. His family’s dry-cleaning business, Madame Paulette, is well-known for their ability to clean couture clothing. Dorinda should have shouted out the name of John’s business when she
heckled gave a shout-out to “Jovani” during Luann’s cabaret debut.
Since her arrest in December 2017, Luann de Lesseps’ life has been action-packed. The Real Housewives of New York star’s very public meltdown triggered a series of events that changed her life in ways she could not have imagined. Following her arrest for charges ranging from disorderly intoxication to battery on an officer, she headed straight to rehab. For many people, accepting a plea deal and quietly serving out the terms of their sentence would have been the end of it.
Not for cabaret star Luann! Since her intial brush with the law, Luann has admitted to continuing to use alcohol, has been to a second stint in rehab, was charged with violating her probation and was sued by her children for alleged trust fund shenanigans. Luann has finally completed the terms of her probation, but continues to waffle on her future sobriety. Now, Luann is questioning whether or not she should have been arrested at all, even claiming she was bullied during her arrest.
Real Housewives of New York’s Luann De Lesseps has had a busy couple of years on the legal front. And that is before she became a cabaret
super star. On December 24, 2017 Luann was arrested in Palm Beach on several charges, including disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence, and battery on a police officer. The RHONY star went to rehab, but it wouldn’t be the only time.
A lawsuit brought against Luann by her children and ex-husband supposedly caused Luann to begin drinking again. In July of 2018, Luann returned to rehab, with the support of RHONY bestie-at-that-time Bethenny Frankel. In fact, Bethenny was part of the intervention that urged her to seek help.
