Rachel Zoe Puzzled By Bethenny Frankel Diss

Bethenny Frankel of the Real Housewives of New York City took to her Twitter page earlier this week to slam stylist and fellow Bravo reality star Rachel Zoe.

OK! Magazine caught up with Rachel, star of The Rachel Zoe Project, to ask her about it, she explained that she has no idea where the bad blood came from. “It was out of left field,” she told OK!

Bethenny’s Twitter comments included slams such as –

“Wondering if I’m the only one who can’t get over the self-important nonsense that is Rachel Zoe.”

“If I stick on a lampshade with a moo moo and a pair of bananas hoop earrings, rz may just D I E. What a bunch of BS!”

Rachel is however ready to put this all behind her, saying – “It’s so boring and uninteresting… I don’t find it fascinating at all. And, it was literally out of left field… I’m over it. I’m totally over it.”

This isn’t the first time Bethenny has slammed someone seemingly unprovoked, she did the same to her NY Housewives costar Jill Zarin just weeks ago.

Bethenny Frankel Poses Nude, Dishes On Housewives Series

Real Housewives of New York City Star, Bethenny Frankel, is making a statement by posing nude in the latest PETA “I’d rather go naked than wear fur” ad campaign. TV Guide Magazine was present at the racy photo shoot on a Manhattan rooftop.

In the new interview with TV Guide Magazine, Bethenny speaks out about posing nude for PETA, her new bestseller, love life and dishes out on the Real housewives series.

Below are excerpts from this interview-

You’re brave! How does it feel to take it all off?
Oh, I’m really excited. I think it’s a really amazing cause. It’s very simple to say to people, “You get to make a choice, and you can choose not to wear fur. It’s such a frivolous thing to do, and I used to do it. I wasn’t a crazy fur-wearer, certainly—I couldn’t afford it and I’m not that outlandish—but it really is so superfluous.

How’d you get involved with PETA, anyway?
I’m a huge animal lover, so it’s been a very organic process. I’m not on the top of any soapbox, but I think this is just a really interesting thing, and they came to me. They [noticed] that I’d gotten a lot of exposure lately—pun intended, because that’s nothing like the exposure I’m getting today. I guess they trust that I’ll be able to carry the message.

Do you have any pets of your own?
I have a dog, Cookie—she’s a lhasa mix, a mutt.

Your book, Naturally Thin, has been a big hit. Does that mean that people are constantly checking out what you’re eating?
Yes! I had a bowl of pasta, and it showed up on blogs. But my entire mantra is that there’s no food that’s forbidden; taste everything, eat nothing. And people have been watching me eat a lot more lately because for 52 weeks, I’m doing a food crawl for my Twitter followers. Last Monday was the lobster roll crawl, this week it’s a gelato crawl, next week it’s a French fry call. I’m going to be at McDonald’s!

What’s your take on the current season of your sister show, the Real Housewives of Atlanta?
I call it the Real Housewivez [sic] of the Hood. They’re all very much into, “Are you a gangster, are you a hood”…asking [questions] about whether you came from money or didn’t come from money. I don’t think anybody’s confusing them from being in the Great Gatsby…and who cares anyway? I think on the first season, they all wanted to prove how wealthy they are, and how they have a staff and stylists. There are two events a year in Atlanta—I don’t know why they need stylists, assistants and hair people. And this season, I think they’re trying to go backwards a little and be like, “This is where I came from.” They’re having a financial identity crisis.

Is that your favorite of the other Housewives franchises?
Atlanta’s my favorite…my show included.

‘Real Housewives of New York City’ Begin Filming 3rd Season

Bravo began filming the 3rd season of The Real Housewives of New York City on Monday despite the widely publized contract issues.

Life&Style magazine reports, “There were contract issues, but Aug. 31 was always the start date, with or without a contract,” says an insider.

Their insider also insists their salaries was not an issue, “The ladies wanted more money, and they’re getting it.” The insider continues, “Bravo was happy to up their pay since the show makes more money now. The Housewives just had an issue with some of the wording in the contract.”

According to Life&Style, Bethenny Frankel is still in talks with Bravo to get her own reality show, and might be leaving the NY Housewives after this season.

We also reported some nasty comments Bethenny recently made about castmate, Jill Zarin, so this 3rd season will definitely have some drama.

NY Housewives’ Bethenny Frankel Disses Jill Zarin!

There have been rumors that BFFs Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel were on the outs, and Bethenny now seems to be confirming these rumors with her recent comments.

Bethenny had some harsh words for her Real Housewives of New York City castmate, calling her recent actions “utterly embarrassing.” Those recent actions include Jill’s public outings with the likes of Jon Gosselin and Michael Lohan.

“Why would Jill be hanging with Jon Gosselin and Michael Lohan?” she asked of Jill’s escapades with the D-List dads in Southampton. “That was like an episode of ‘The Surreal Life.’ It is utterly embarrassing. I mean, honestly, Urkel should have come – and if Gary Coleman showed up, it would have been perfect.”

Bethenny doesn’t stop there. As she stirred up drinks she created in honor of celebs, she snapped “No!” when asked if she created a drink for former BFF Jill, “Jill doesn’t get a drink,” said Bethenny.

This isn’t too surprising as the pair have not been photographed together in recent months. I have also heard stories about Jill becoming too big for her britches. Some are saying she has become a total diva, and a nightmare to be around. I ready a story about her pulling the “Do you know who I am” outburst while she was waiting to get served at a restaurant. She seems to truly consider herself a celebrity, and wants to be famous at all cost.

This new drift should make for an interesting new season of The Real Housewives of New York.

Bethenny Frankel Denies Reality Show Plus Not Engaged?

Bethenny Frankel made an appearance on Bravo’s new talk show – “Watch What Happens” last night as the call in guest. Bethenny denied rumors of getting her own reality show, as previously reported. When asked if she was leaving The Real Housewives of New York, she answered – “Of course I’m coming back! If you guys invite me back, I’ll be back.”

More importantly, and I’m not sure if anyone else caught this, but Bethenny referred to her supposed fiance, Jason Hoppy, as her boyfriend. When asked about the party planner incident, she said, “As my boyfriend said, the wheels came off.”

Does this mean Bethenny is not engaged after all? or did she just make an error when speaking?

It seems very unlikely that she would mistakenly refer to her fiance as her boyfriend. Come to think of it, Bethenny has never publicly confirmed being engaged. Her rep was the one who told news outlets that Jason and Bethenny would be “definitely getting married.”

So what do we have here? Bethenny is not getting her own reality show as reported, and is likely not engaged as well.

Bethenny Frankel Getting Her Own Reality Show!

The NYPost is reporting that Bethenny Frankel will be getting her own reality show on Bravo. The big shocker however is they are also reporting this means Bethenny will no longer be on The Real Housewives of New York City. Yikes! Will the show still be worth watching without her?

According to the Post, her show will be titled “Skinny & The City.” A source said, “The show will follow her planning her wedding to [fiancé] Jason Hoppy.” Her rep confirmed a while ago that the two would be getting married.

Life & Style also reports Frankel is penning a second book about “romance, money and friends” inspired by her feud a with co-star Kelly Bensimon. Bravo had “no comment.” A picture of Bethenny and Jason below –

Kelly Bensimon on The Real Housewives: ‘The Bar Is So High’

Kelly Bensimon was able to take some time away from Kelly world to talk to People in a new interview about the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New York.

As we reported earlier, Kelly has signed on for the 3rd season, but she is uncertain as to which other housewives will be returning. “I am coming back,” says Kelly. “But I actually don’t know who else is coming back. They don’t really tell me.”

Kelly is however uncertain is the new season will be able to match the drama of the other housewives’ franchises. “We start shooting in two weeks,” she said. “And it’s going to be interesting now because the bar is so high. When Gretchen [Rossi from The Real Housewives of Orange County] is getting a motorcycle at a party and Teresa [Giudice from The Real Housewives of New Jersey] is throwing over the table, what’s going to happen?”

She goes on to talk about The New Jersey Housewives – When I met Danielle, she said, ‘Thank you so much for being supportive of me. She was just really excited and flattered that I supported her. Unless you do something wrong to me, I will give you a chance.”

And what about Caroline Manzo? She’s “the all-time mama bear,” Kelly said. “And actually, she was really sweet and really nice.”

Kelly has also gotten close with some of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, “I was going down to Atlanta to open a hotel, so I called NeNe [Leakes],” Bensimon said. “I took out NeNe and Lisa [Wu Hartwell] and we had so much fun. They’re crazy, fun and spirited. They’re awesome girls.”

Real NJ Housewife Teresa Is Preparing For Baby #4

Energetic Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Giudice is expecting baby #4 in September. Teresa opens up to OK magazine about her pregnancy.

“I eat everything,” she tells OK with young daughter Gia at her side. “I don’t watch what I eat – I’m not one of those ‘oh I have to watch my figure.’ I just make the baby happy. Whatever the baby wants, I eat it. No cravings.” Teresa says she has had to satisfy her alcohol cravings with food.

She goes on to say she is not interested in knowing the sex of the baby. “Whatever God wants – as long as it’s a healthy baby.” Gia adds, “It’s the fourth child and you want it to be a surprise – you should let it be a surprise.”

Big sisters Gia, Gabriella and Milania are anxious to meet the new addition to the family. Teresa also adds that hubby, Juicy Joe, is a great dad.

Lessons she will like to pass on to the kids- value family and be a well-rounded good person because you have to look at yourself in the mirror daily.

Will Real Housewife Of NYC Jill Zarin Return For A Third Season?

NJHousewife_wenn25002

Rumors have been circulating that Jill Zarin may not return to The Real Housewives of New York City because Bravo has refused to meet her demands.

In an interview with Radaronline, Jill insists that she will be returning even though she has yet to sign the contract. In addition, she confirmed Kelly Bensimon was one of the first housewives to sign the contract for season 3. However, she failed to confirm if other cast mates had signed their contracts.

Even though Bravo released a statement saying they are looking for new cast members, Jill insists all the cast mates will be returning. “The ink isn’t dry yet, but I can tell you that we’re all set on returning,” she said. “Bravo released a statement saying they were looking for new cast members and I think people read into that. I think the show was giving some of the original cast members a chance to deal with their personal lives.”

She also refutes rumors saying she was getting paid about $30,000 an episode, but nevertheless she says she is not involved in reality television because of the money.

Countess-LuAnn-de-Lessepsprincess-kemeria-abajobir-abajifar-count-alex-de-lesseps

The NYPost reported yesterday that Count Alex De Lesseps was attempting to reconcile with LuAnn. The reason being he had broken up with his Ethopian girlfriend, Princess Abajobir. The Count is however denying the story today, saying he and the princess ended things amicably, and that he does not intend to reconcile with LuAnn. The full post is below –

COUNT Alex de Lesseps takes issue with the source who told us “so bluntly” that he “got rid” of his Ethiopian girlfriend, Princess Abajobir. In an e-mail, he asserts, “We separated amicably and will remain friends, just as our children will.” The count also threw cold water on the idea he and Countess LuAnn might reconcile: “I am not trying to get back with the count ess in any way, as your spies suggested. We will re main friends and take care of our children.” The count, who rented a villa in babe-rich St. Tropez for the sum mer, might not be lonely for long.
