Bethenny Frankel Stans and haters were both caught off guard when she announced her departure from Real Housewives of New York– mere hours before shooting Season 12 began. Ramona Singer even claimed that she and the RHONY women had no idea Bethenny quit until the news hit the media.
Now, there are already reports
about Bethenny’s replacement about a new cast member.
Remember when it was all “about Tom?” I kind of miss that. Because these days, it’s all about Bethenny Frankel. First, to the shock of fans and, apparently, cast mates, she announced her departure from the Real Housewives of New York.
Then, she broke Twitter with her announcement that she “is the only one that is actually married,” causing endless speculation that she secretly married her current boyfriend, Paul Bernon. She also tagged all of her castmates in her announcement. Reminder: all of her castmates are single and desperate not to be single. Well, all except Dorinda Medly, She wouldn’t marry boyfriend John Mahdessian and for all the free dry cleaning and Christmas décor in the world.
Ramona Singer has given Bethenny Frankel lots of flack for “not supporting other women” and I wouldn’t blame her for feeling that way (again) if her recent comments are true. Ramona claimed that Bethenny never told any of the Real Housewives of New York cast members that she quit the show.
Apparently, the RHONY ladies found out just like the rest of us did: through the press. To make matters worse, Ramona posted a video on her Instagram Story strongly hinting that she was about to film for the new season last night. So did the cameras capture the ladies’ reaction to Bethenny’s departure? I wonder if they will show that footage when Season 12 airs. Probably not, but I would love to see it. That or the group text with Bethenny excluded full of Housewives bitching about getting blindsided while bragging that they do not “need” B.
Just because we’ve done this before, it doesn’t mean that it is easy. In case you missed it, Bethenny Frankel left Real Housewives of New York. Again. She announced the news yesterday and I don’t know about you, but, for me the term “blindsided” wasn’t enough to define my shock.
She just came off of a such a solid season. RHONY had such a great cast of women who party, argue, and make up, in the most perfect cycle. Where does the show go from here!? Bethenny’s absence came completely out of nowhere and I am so embarrassed to admit that I am still processing it.
Wow, Bethenny, wow. This is truly the end of an era. Bethenny Frankel is done with Real Housewives of New York. Who saw this coming? After a rough Season 10 feuding with Carole Radziwill, Bethenny had a great follow up with Season 11.
At the very least, she ended things on a high note, on good terms with almost everyone. She’s even in a stable relationship with Paul Bernon, who does not want to be on this show, so this does make some sense. Still, it really does feel so sudden. Who’s going to reveal Luann de Lesseps’ private secrets? Who is going to put Ramona Singer in her place?
Season 11 of the Real Housewives of New York was dominated by Luann de Lesseps. If Luann wasn’t center stage, her co-stars were gossiping about her behind her back. Luann’s arrogance, cabaret obsession and sobriety were all called into question during the season. Luann was usually denying, deflecting and oblivious to the concerns of her co-stars like Bethenny Frankel, Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan.
Luann’s road to sobriety has been bumpy, to say the least. An embarrassing arrest in Palm Beach in late 2017, two stints in rehab and probation violations have resulted in Luann’s sobriety becoming tabloid fodder. Luann admitted earlier this year that she had fallen off the wagon and was given additional probation restrictions. Some co-stars like Ramona Singer have accused Luann of continuing to drink, which she obviously did not appreciate.
We are back with Instagram Roundup! This time we are trying it out on a monthly basis with a look back of the most interesting photos from this past month.
Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder shared engagement photos with new fiancé Beau Clark. The two them along with other cast members went to Vegas for Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s legal marriage ceremony. Yes, in case you weren’t aware, it wasn’t legal the first time they tied the knot, so they had to do it again.
Because, of course, she does! The Singer Stinger strikes again, y’all! Since Real Housewives of New York’s conception, Ramona has been the gift that keeps on giving. If you like your gifts wrapped in paper recycled from childhood trauma. This is a woman who has no filter and no f*cks to give, perfect for reality television. Ramona floats on a cloud of pinot grigio and muddled thoughts with a mouth that often gets her into trouble. That said, she is the OG of this particular franchise and prides herself on being
Season 11 saw Ramona with many opinions, as usual. Ramona has always been wide open, even when sharing thoughts about her co-stars. We know how she feels about LuAnn de Lesseps’ drinking. Viewers also got a little hint about Ramona’s feelings on Bethenny Frankel’s ex-boyfriend. She also blessed fans by providing her perception of Barbara Kavovit’s role on the show. To put it mildly, she might not care what you think, but Ramona definitely cares what she thinks. Since she’s not in the business of making other people happy, now Ramona wants another friend of hers to join the RHONY cast. Sit down and strap in because the Ramonacoaster is about to take another ride.
