Bethenny Frankel What Are Her Two Biggest Mistakes?

Bethenny Frankel Spotted Out In NYCHere’s Bethenny Frankel, out and about with her daughter Bryn (you can see some pics of Bryn in the gallery after the break). Can you believe she’s returning to ‘Real Housewives of New York’? It must feel like coming full circle. Given all she’s done between her first time on the show and her return, though, there’s no question she’s coming back in a different place! RELATED: Bethenny Frankel is returning to RHONY, but Bryn may not be returning with her, if Jason Hoppy has his way.

I mean, when Bethenny started RHONY, she was single. She got married, had a child, started her Skinnygirl empire, had her own spin-off show, and even tried her hand at being a talk-show host. Yet her return to the show feels like a new start. Bethenny explained:

[Returning to RHONY] just feels fresh and new, which is kind of representative of where I am in my personal life, which feels fresh and new.”

She also shared what she felt had been her two biggest mistakes in her life so far.

“Not going with my gut in my personal life versus my professional life” and “not being able to be really honest about seeing the big picture and the road ahead….with myself.”

I think a lot of people struggle with those issues! Are you looking forward to Bethenny’s return to ‘Real Housewives of New York’?

Lisa Rinna: Makeup-Free on Instagram!

Lisa Rinna is the latest celebrity to go makeup-free on Instagram.

The latest member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast went online yesterday and posted a a revealing, all-natural selfie, doing so as part of UNICEF’s #wakeupcall campaign, which lends support and awareness to children displaced by the civil war in Syria

Lisa Rinna, No Makeup

“I woke up like this’ #UNICEF #WakeUpCall,” the actress wrote as a caption.

Countless stars, from Demi Lovato to Bethenny Frankel to Kim Kardashian, have posted make-free selfies online over the years.

But others participating in this specific movement include Cindy Crawford (who posted a barefaced pictured to Instagram on Monday) and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who got in on the same act last week.

Veteran models Supermodels Naomi Campbell and Elle Macpherson have also contributed to the social media-fueled awareness effort.

We applaud each and every one of them and we look forward to seeing what sort of craziness Rinna will bring next season to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Kim Kardashian


Kim Kardashian’s doesn’t lie about the fact that makeup MAKES her who she is. She’s shared more than one tutorial about how to get her signature look using highlighting products to contour her face.

Taylor Swift Album on Pace to Set 2014 Sales Record

This just in: people really like Taylor Swift.

As if the gushing reviews for her new album didn’t make that clear enough, consider the early sales figures:

It is already on pace, after barely one day of release, to move 1,000,000 copies in a week.

Taylor Swift Performs in Hollywood

This would make “1989” just the 19th record to EVER sell one million copies in seven days since Nielsen SoundScan started tracking sales in 1991.

It would also make the album the first in 2014 to do so, while making Swift the first singer to have three separate million-selling weeks.

In 2010, “Speak Now” moved 1.05 million copies and “Red” then sold 1.21 million two years later.

If “1989” crossed the one million plateau, Swift will notch the biggest sales week for an album since… her very own “Red” in 2012.

So clearly Swift being absolutely EVERYwhere these days – from closing down Hollywood Boulevard to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live… to appearing on The Voice last night – hasn’t made folks sick and/or tired of Taylor Swift.

Quite the opposite, in fact. It’s merely helped proved one very simply fact:

This is Taylor Swift’s universe. The rest of us are merely existing within it.

Bethenny Frankel Jason Hoppy Doesn’t Want Bryn on ‘RHONY’

Bethenny Frankel Out And About In NYCIt’s been confirmed: Bethenny Frankel is returning to her reality TV roots for the upcoming season of ‘Real Housewives of New York.’ However, her daughter Bryn may not be returning with her. Jason Hoppy reportedly is heading to court to ask a judge to prohibit Bryn from appearing on the show. RELATED: Bethenny Frankel scolded by judge for wearing her daughter’s pajamas.

A source told Radar Online:

Jason isn’t thrilled with it because he knows Bethenny is going to get in numerous jabs about the divorce.”

Another source said:

It’s just not healthy for Bryn to be on TV at a time when her parents are getting divorced. Bethenny signed up for the show, their daughter didn’t.”

Bethenny’s lawyers reportedly will point out that this is something of a double standard on Jason’s part.

Jason had no problem with Bryn being on Bethenny’s Bravo spin-off show when they were happily married. Bethenny wouldn’t have Bryn be with her during every single shoot for Real Housewives of New York, but she is adamant that the judge allow her to be on the show.”

I can see Bethenny’s attorneys point, but I’m not sure if it will matter. Typically both custodial parents have to sign off on a minor appearing on a show: that’s how Jon Gosselin was able to shut down ‘Kate Plus 8.’ He’s against it now, but he reportedly waived his right to say if they could appear on TV or not in return for not having to pay child support. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be any ‘Kate Plus 8′ specials. Really, though, Bethenny is interesting all on her own :).

Brandi Glanville met her 23-year-old boyfriend in Amsterdam’s red light district

brandi

Brandi Glanville posted this ^^ photo on her Twitter a few weeks ago with the message “Awe! Missing Amsterdam.” Brandi and the RHOBH went on a cast trip (filmed, of course) to the Netherlands last month I think. And that’s where Brandi apparently met this guy in the photo. He’s 23 years old. And he’s Brandi’s new boyfriend.

There’s a cougar on the loose! In her column for Australia’s New Weekly magazine, Brandi Glanville admitted she’s dating a 23-year-old that she met during a recent trip to Amsterdam.

“So, I just got back from a little trip to Amsterdam with the other Housewives,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star wrote. “I can’t tell you anything about the trip except I have a boyfriend! I met a cute guy in the Red Light District! He’s very handsome and we’ve been Skyping. He’s 23, so it’s like having a third child. He’s so gorgeous, it’s stupid, but he’s going to come out here! He’s clearly from a well-to-do family. Like, he paid the bills, he opened doors. Hey, I make friends wherever I go. Anything to get away from the drama.”

[From Star Magazine]

This is something I’ve never really understood. I mean, I sort of get the cougar thing when a woman is in her 40s and the “cub” is maybe in his late 20s. But I don’t get wanting a guy in their late teens and early 20s. Most of those dudes are tools. It’s not their fault, it’s just that age. It’s bad enough to deal with those guys when you’re actually the same age, I can’t imagine wanting to do it when you’re in your 40s. Still, Brandi likes ‘em pretty and I doubt this is something super-serious.

Also – Brandi has been tweeting a lot about her father’s health problems lately. Apparently, LeAnn Rimes’ fans have been harassing Brandi via Twitter about her dad. Ugh. STOP IT.

Teresa Giudice Is Bravo Saving Christmas For The Giudices?

Teresa Giudice Cooks at Parx Casino in PennsylvaniaThis Christmas is going to be the last holiday Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice will get to spend together with their daughters as a family for a few years, at least. Teresa is scheduled to report to prison in early January, and as soon as she’s home, Joe will report for his sentence. Rumor has it Teresa and Joe have been at loggerheads about how this Christmas should be celebrated: she wants “couture” while he wants thrift store.” Well, Bravo may have saved the holiday for them. RELATED: Teresa Giudice begs judge for placement in Connecticut prison over West Virginia prison.

Bravo reportedly is offering Teresa $250K to film a ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ holiday special, according to Radar Online. A source claims:

Teresa had been very concerned about how she was going to pay for the extravagant gifts for their four daughters at Christmas. She didn’t want to cut back in buying any gifts for the girls, and with Bravo offering such a huge payday for a special makes her inclined to accept the offer.
“This could be a way for her to say goodbye to her fans ahead of beginning the 15-month prison sentence.”

Teresa reportedly wanted to go REALLY big this year, and that’s saying something, given what a typical Christmas with her is like.

Typically, Teresa would spend up to $10,000 on gifts for just the girls. From designer handbags, jewelry, one of a kind dolls, there isn’t anything that the girls asked for and didn’t get.”

Bravo is said to be eager to get this episode filmed, too.

[The special would] absolutely be taped as soon as possible. Teresa has been so erratic with her decisions recently that Bravo wants to get it locked down and done. It would feature Teresa shopping for gifts, possibly doing some charity work and family stories with the girls. Bravo would milk it for ratings and make it at least a two-night special.”

Erratic decision-making or not, something tells me Bravo has made Teresa an offer she can’t refuse ;).

Teresa Giudice Pre-Prison Christmas Special Coming to Bravo: She Got Paid HOW MUCH?!

Even though the delusional reality star is still fighting her sentence, there’s officially no getting around it: Teresa Giudice will serve 15 months in prison beginning on January 5.

Teresa Giudice on The Real Housewives

Though you’d think they’d have enough drama in their lives, sources say the Giudices are arguing about how to spend their last Christmas together before they’re separated for several years.

(Joe Giudice will begin his 41 month sentence after Teresa completes hers.)

We’re not sure if the felonious couple have agreed on how to spend the holidays yet, but one thing’s for sure – it will be a lucrative affair for the entire family.

Teresa and Bravo have reportedly reached a deal for a Giudice family Christmas special that will pay the Real Housewife $250,000, with bonus checks being handed out to the rest of the family.

“Teresa had been very concerned about how she was going to pay for the extravagant gifts for their four daughters at Christmas,” says a source close to the Giudices. “This could be a way for her to say goodbye to her fans ahead of the prison sentence.”

Right…we’re sure saying goodbye to her fans is Teresa’s real motivation here.

Teresa is already one of the highest-paid Real Housewives, with Bravo insiders claiming Giudice’s salary reached $700,000 a year in recent seasons. 

Between that income and the cash from her pre-prison interviews, Teresa has nearly paid off her court-ordered restitution before even beginning her sentence. Jeez, almost seems like she didn’t need to commit all that fraud in the first place, right?

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online at TV Fanatic to see Teresa living high on the hog before it all came crashing down. 

Table Flipping Fiend


Teresa Giudice is not gonna take any crap. Her table-flipping reputation will precede her in prison, thanks to The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 1.

Teresa Giudice Begs Judge For Placement In Connecticut Facility Over West Virginia

The Book Expo 2012 In New YorkDid you hear the rumors that Teresa Giudice was talking with new attorneys about possibly appealing her sentence? She made a comment about how she thought her attorneys would “fight for me,” so it sounds like she thought they should have done more. Maybe she blames them for getting prison time over house arrest or probation. Well, Teresa has retained new legal counsel, and her attorney has already sent a letter to the judge in an attempt to get placed at the federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut, which is close to New Jersey, over the federal prison on West Virginia. RELATED: Teresa Giudice is recording videos for her daughters while Joe pleads guilty to another crime.

According to Radar Online, Teresa’s attorney has sent a letter to the judge.

During Ms. Giudice’s sentencing, the Court expressed its intent to have Ms. Giudice serve her sentence in a camp environment. The sentencing transcripts reflect that Your Honor mentioned ‘Danbury and West Virginia.’ We acknowledge that at the time of sentencing, defense counsel did not ask for a specific designation.
“However, upon review of the judgment of conviction, and in discussions with a Bureau of Prisons expert, the language of the judgment as written will likely result in Ms. Giudice being designated to Metropolitan Detention Facility Brooklyn, or Metropolitan Correctional Facility Manhattan…both of which are administrative facilities that house females,” the letter continues. “This was clearly not the intention of the court when inquiring as to Danbury or West Virginia as a designation.
“Ms. Giudice’s offense and her Bureau of Prison classification will qualify her to be designated to a camp, however, the language of the judgment must reflect the same. At this time we respectfully request the Court to amend Ms. Giduice’s JOC to state ‘the Court strongly recommends a non-administrative facility placement, specifically, the FCI Danbury Satellite Camp to facilitate visitation with her young children; or if Danbury is full, we would ask for an alternative camp, specifically Alderson in West Virginia, for Ms. Giudice to serve her sentence.’”

Teresa reportedly opted against filing an appeal of her sentence, since it would have been rejected immediately, given that one of the conditions of the plea deal was that she would accept whatever sentence would be handed down. However, even this letter feels unnecessary. The judge doesn’t decide where Teresa will be placed (that’s up to the prison administrators and is based on availability at the time she has to surrender), and the Danbury facility is transitioning to a men-only prison, so it’s unlikely she would be sent there. It looks like she’s going to the mountains of West Virginia.
I can understand Teresa doing this, though. She must feel so helpless. I can’t even imagine…

Bethenny Frankel’s mom trashes her: ‘nasty, snobby and very arrogant’

wenn21805705
There isn’t much that can make me feel sorry for Bethenny Frankel, but this interview her mom did with Radar Online comes close. Bethenny and her mom, Bernadette, have a contentious relationship and no longer speak to each other. After reading this interview, I understand why. Bethenny’s mom absolutely trashed her to Radar Online. She called her daughter “nasty,” “snobby” and “arrogant.” Bernadette also said she knew that Bethenny and her ex husband, Jason, wouldn’t last. It’s all incredibly bitter, especially considering that she’s talking about her own daughter. Bethenny detailed her mother’s alcoholism, neglect and abuse in her 2011 biography, A Place of Yes, and Bernadette hasn’t forgiven her. I doubt this woman would have a kind word to say about her daughter regardless. Here’s more:

“I tried to watch Bethenny’s show because I had a vested interest in it,” [Bernadette Birk] tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. “But after the first week I stopped because it was just terrible. I was bored.”

“The things she does and says on camera is not who she is,” says Birk.

Birk hasn’t seen her daughter in more than a decade and calls her a “liar” over the allegations made against her in Frankel’s 2011 self-help/autobiography, Place of Yes. But Birk tells Radar that her daughter “wasn’t always like this.”

“She started changing at age 16. She became very snobby and very arrogant. Especially towards me…

“She had sex with her first serious boyfriend while in high school at 16-years-old, and she cheated on him about a year later,” Birk tells Radar. “That is just how she is. She jumps from man to man.”

“I always said that Bethenny and Jason would divorce after two years,” she says, referring to Frankel’s recent divorce from ex-husband Jason Hoppy, 43, who she shares custody with of her 4-year-old daughter, Bryn.

“I just knew that as soon as that child was in day care he was gone. She was really nasty to him on the show.”

[From Radar Online]

Maybe Bethenny’s mom isn’t technically wrong, but who says that about their own daughter? I don’t blame Bethenny for not talking to her mom, this woman is toxic. All things considered, Bethenny has risen above everything that happened to her. It’s just sad to hear someone trash her daughter like this. You don’t do that to family.

Bethenny is returning to Real Housewives of New York for season 7, which premieres next year.
