Whether or not Kelly Bensimon is crazy seemed to be the main subject of last night’s catfight-tastic episode of the “The Real Housewives of New York City.” All the women — well, except for Jill and LuAnn — got trapped together hopping around the Virgin Islands, landing at some crazy castle resort, where either something in the food, the water, or the weather — OK, maybe it was the company — made Kelly go coo-coo. Or did it? Keep reading »
Last night, I missed “The Real Housewives Of New York City”
because it was The Frisky’s night to bowl in the New York All Media Bowling League (I rolled my highest score ever, FYI), but I did make it home in time to see this hot mess, above. The Countess, LuAnn de Lesseps, performing her still-unfinished track, “Chic, C’est La Vie,” which she describes as “spoken word over a Saint-Tropez beat.” Ah-mazingness. Keep reading »
I loved the first two seasons of “The Real Housewives of New York City.” While the ladies’ beefs in seasons past were petty, this year’s feuds are more, “Really—you have more than three words to say about this microscopic thing?” The most disappointing part for me is Bethenny and Jill. In the past two seasons, they were best of friends and my two favorite characters on the show because they were at least 10 degrees less crazy than the rest of the women.

Instead, they’re avoiding each other, creating a ton of tension, and showing outrageous levels of self-absorption in the process.
But their feud reached a fever pitch this weekend, when Bethenny had her baby. Keep reading »
Oh, the song of the summer has arrived! Throw out your “Tardy for the Party” cassettes, girls. Countess LuAnn is ready to rock the mic! LuAnn De Lesseps’ first single has been leaked, and, well, it’s rich. Just take a listen, why don’t you? Keep reading »
You know how Kelly Bensimon of “The Real Housewives of New York City” claims to be a writer? Well, until I peeped this video I assumed she attended swanky events, greeted her hosts, and afterward pulled a little blurb out of her behind for a niche magazine or website. Boy, was I wrong. I, like Kelly, know the pain of rejection when you’re hitting the pavement trying to report a story. But I often had to interview more nefarious subjects than those expressing their own street style. Catch the rest of the episode tomorrow night at 10 p.m. on Bravo, and don’t forget to hit up the Talk Bubble while you watch. Keep reading »
