Bethenny & Season 3, More Housewives Dish August 4, 2009


Bethenny Frankel is someone that I used to be able to handle but I don’t love her anymore.  The biggest reason why is all the blogging she’s done about the other casts/seasons — I’ve tried reading a couple but she comes off as judgmental, harsh, and most of all, bitter.  Some of those things are what caused audiences to love her in the first place, but I’m the first to say that sometimes too much of a good thing is just that: too much.  My hubs was trying to tell me the other day that he read some article that her new pseudo-boyfriend is some type of fraud and isn’t actually an investor or in real estate or whatever it is that this guy supposedly does.  I don’t care enough to Google him, and that’s saying something because 20 minutes ago I tried to Google a Colorado Wildlife commercial to figure out what type of weird bird was featured in it.

So not only are Jeana, Vicki, Tamra, Lynne, and Gretchen back for a fifth season of the Real Housewives of Orange County, but they’re added another blonde bimbette to their sorority.  This one’s name is Alexis Bellino.  She’s a gorgeous mom of 3 with an entrepeneur husband.  I hope for her sake that she gets along better with Tamra and Vicki than Gretchen and Lynne did last season.  They didn’t fare so well…


Real Housewives Contract Negotations July 8, 2009

Update on Real Housewives of New York is that Kelly Bensimon will return and she was actually the first to sign her contract.  She apparently knows that the city of NY as a whole hates her guts and wants to change her image by being on the show. 


The only two women holding out are Ramona and Jill, both for more money.  They see themselves as the “stars” of NYC.  I agree on one count.  I’ve had too much of buggy-eyed Ramona already and think she’s generally an atrocious human.  She’s catty, nasty, negative, and so full of herself it’s unbelievable.  Jill, on the other hand, IS the star of the show and I wouldn’t want to watch it without her on it.  I also could handle no more Bethenny.  After all the malicious things she said about the other casts, specifically NJ while blogging about it, I’m so over her.  She’s another one that clearly thinks too highly of herself. 


The real big news here is that because Jill and Ramona refuse to sign, Bravo has put out a casting call for 2 new women to take their place.  I assume they’re bluffing, but who really knows?  They should get viewer opinion before asking these women back rather than looking at ratings alone.  There’s no reason Kelly should have been asked back except that they did it for the drama she creates.  Well, guess what, Bravo?  You’re making a mockery of your franchise.  I think you need the staple cast members who are a calming influence, like Deshawn Snow was in Atlanta (she got axed after one season because they told her she was too boring).  And if I were you, I’d completely re-cast for Orange County.  I’ve had enough of them too.

It isn’t for sure yet!  A lot was revealed in US Weekly’s latest issue, which featured Dina, Teresa and Danielle on the cover.  Here’s some highlights:

The return is here!  Bravo officially announced the premiere date for July 30th (as I promised you in a post just last week!)

Read more about it through People:

Ahhh, I can’t wait!  They could very well be my very favorite cast EVER.  Orange County has moved to the bottom of my list.

Outside of those shit bucket shows Miami Social and NYC Prep (which I do not intend to watch in case you can’t tell) two of my absolute favey faves are returning veeeery soon!


Look out for The Real Housewives of Atlanta to possibly pop up July 30th (not confirmed by Bravo just yet but the timing coincides with the end of The Fashion Show).

Also, Flipping Out should be back on August 17th, when Kathy Griffin’s show wraps up — also happens to be right around the time that traitorous Project Runway airs on Lifetime!

Can’t wait!  Me loves the Bravo.

kd092_11425_rd_My_Pretty_FlowerI want to take a moment to respond to your multiple comments, all of which I loved and appreciated.  I had to stop watching I’m a Celebrity… because of Speidi.  They frightened me.  Either they are really good actors or Spencer is truly the worst human being on Earth.  If that is what he looks like trying to be a “good Christian” like Heidi says, then I’m terrified to see what he looks like when he’s trying to behave badly.  And the comment about how she “cannot not have sex with him for that long”?  Vomit in my mouth is not even strong enough of a statement.
