The NYC “Housewives” Aren’t Interested In The Countess’s Classless Crap

From the looks of this video and one more after the jump, “The Real Housewives of New York City” aren’t taking any crap from Countess LuAnn de Lesseps. They’re finally comfortable in front of the cameras and aren’t seeking approval anymore, so they—Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer specifically—are finally telling the C(o)untess what…

Reality TV Star Couples Living Happily Ever After

Awww. It looks like two Bravo reality TV show stars have gotten together—and they didn’t even need the help of “The Millionaire Matchmaker.” Kelly Bensimon of “The Real Housewives of New York City” and recently divorced Sam Talbot of “Top Chef” sure look like they are dating. Although this couple is denying rumors of a…

Girl Talk: I Was Kelly Bensimon’s Personal Assistant

Why Did The Real Housewives Of NYC Cancel Their Event?

A couple weeks ago, I got invited to an “amazing cocktail party shopping event”: “How To Dress to Land A Millionaire.” Ridiculous, right? But when I saw who was on the guest panel — Alex McCord and Ramona Singer from “The Real Housewives of New York City,” I knew I had to go. I eve…

Let’s Go Shopping And Talk Nonsense With Kelly Bensimon!

So basically, Kelly Bensimon went on a shopping trip with The Daily Beast for stuff she already owns. (Gold $370 Gryphon shorts? Wore them to a Kim Kardashian party! “Sexy rocker chick” miniskirt from Intermix? It’s already packed for this weekend’s trip to Miami! An “Alaia meets Pocahontas” belt? Just snapped it up!) Seriously, every…

The Really Rich Housewives Of New York City Want More Money

There’s drama, drama, drama over the next season of “The Real Housewives of New York City.” While Kelly Bensimon, the newbie housewife-that-everyone-loves-to-hate, is officially on board, the original cast members––Bethany Frankel, Alex McCord, Ramona Singer, and Jill Zarin (there was no mention of LuAnn de Lesseps)––are rumored to be stalling on signing their contracts for…

“The Real Housewives Of New York City”: Financial Lessons From Jill Zarin

This week on the “Real Housewives of New York City,” the BBC interviewed our very own Jill Zarin about the state of the economy. It seemed like a set up, like having the Countess talk to inner city kids about self esteem. After Jill asked the BBC folks how she looked (during a radio interview),…

The C(o)untess Is Forced To Eat Humble Pie

In today’s New York Times Style section, there’s a profile of LuAnn de Lesseps, the soon-to-be-former C(o)untess and star of “The Real Housewives Of New York City.” You see, she’s got a book, Class With the Countess, to promote, despite havoc in her personal life that makes the timing oh-so-awkward. A few weeks ago, new…

Ode To The Real Housewives Of NYC

After the amazing brouhaha between Kelly and Bethenny on last week’s episode of “The Real Housewives of New York,” this week’s episode was a downright snooze fest. Watching rich, middle-aged white people play tennis is about as exciting as watching the paint dry in Jill’s new Liberace-inspired apartment, and with Ramona’s new “cool…

Five Things To Know About Kelly Killoren Bensimon (Before You Decide To Hate Her)

So the bitch factor has been turned WAY up with the addition of socialite and “fabulousity-crowd” lover Kelly Killoren Bensimon on “The Real Housewives of New York City.” Thanks to last night’s episode, we already know annoying/insecure Bethenny hates her guts, but the mannish model/equestrian managed to make the rest of the “Housewives”…

Quickies!: The Recession Hits “The Real Housewives Of New York City”

Alex McCord of “The Real Housewives of New York City” was just laid off from her visual merchandising gig at Victoria’s Secret. Now she and Simon will have to curtail their extravagant shopping sprees and off-season trips to St. Bart’s. Oh no! And what about their $200,000 brownstone renovation?!

The Real Housewives Of NYC: LuAnn Is The Most Rotten Apple Of All

Given the drama of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and the deer-in-headlights-spectacle of “Orange County,” the NYC version is the most tepid and ho-hum of Bravo’s franchise. That’s not to say, however, that some of their cast members aren’t as heinous. While I kind of respect damaged and opinionated Bethenny, adore blabbermouth Jill, and find…

Quickies!: A 13-Year-Old Baby Daddy & Anna Nicole Gets Remembered In Opera

This is slightly disturbing. While most 13-year-old boys are thinking about sports and video games, this one is thinking of how to care for his child. Because he’s a father! Also, he looks like he’s eight. [Parentdish]
To celebrate the second season of “The Real Housewives of New York,” Sephora is giving away freebies.

Face Off: The Real Housewives Of Atlanta, Orange County & New York City

Sadly, the first season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” will come to an end after the reunion episode this Tuesday. These women were by far the most entertaining of the Bravo “Real Housewives” franchise because they didn’t keep up appearances for the camera, but let the true drama fly. I’m the only loser at…
