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.

Jon Gosselin’s Reporter ‘Girlfriend’ Resigns Over Him

Things seem to be getting very serious between Jon Gosselin and his new reporter girlfriend of 5 days. UsWeekly is now reporting that Kate Major has quit her job as a Star magazine reporter due to a “conflict of interest between her reporting duties for the magazine and her relationship with Jon Gosselin.”

Jill Zarin is also continuing her self appointed duty of being the unofficial spokesperson for the couple saying, “I think it’s authentic… I think it’s fast. I think it happened very quickly.”

Jon has yet to publicly comment on this new relationship.

Meanwhile Jon’s other girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, spoke to People this morning saying she had no idea Jon was seeing another woman. “That’s news to me” says Hailey. She then got teary eye according to People and said, “I still love Jon and Jon loves me.”

I’m literally at a lost for words. Are we being punked?

Jon Gosselin Now Dating Tabloid Reporter Kate Major

The latest in Jon’s Gosselin’s mid life crisis is news that he is now dating Star Magazine reporter – Kate Major. Seriously, we couldn’t make these stories up even if we had the best soap writers on staff.

This is just 2 days after his 22 year old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, was publicly gushing about her new relationship with him.

“I didn’t mean it to happen, it just did,” Kate, 26, said Tuesday. “I went to do a story on Jon and ended up falling for him.” Kate was first photographed with Jon this Saturday at NYC restaurant, where according to an onlooker, she was described as ” flirting shamelessly with Jon.”

The “new couple” was also seen dining last night in the Hamptons with Michael Lohan (Lindsay Lohan’s father) and Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin, whom Jon reportedly asked “for media advice.”

Jill also confirms to People that Jon and Kate are now dating saying, “He didn’t seem smitten. They weren’t all over each other. But they’re definitely dating. It came up in conversation. She had her hands on him. But she’s young. This is a girl who is going to want to have babies. Does he really want to go out with another young girl and have kids?”

TELL US – What do you think of the latest saga in Jon Gosselin’s new life?

Love Is In The Air For Real Housewife of NYC – Kelly Bensimon

Uma Thurman’s ex boyfriend and New York City hotelier, André Balazs, has found a new love interest. André who dated Uma Thurman on and off for about 4 years was spotted with Real Housewives of NYC’s star, Kelly Bensimon.

Both Kelly and André were seen at the opening of the lounge hot spot wall at W South Beach. The following night, the pair were found cuddling at Andre’s hotel, The Raleigh. Later in the evening, the pair were once again seen holding hands while dancing, laughing and sharing drinks at the VIP lounge.

Bethenny Frankel Getting Her Own Reality Show!
