Casting Rumors for Real Housewives of New York and Other News by NoMoreDrama
Sheee’s baack. Just when we thought we were done with a certain red-head … Joke. I can’t even finish the sentence. But it is that time of year again when rumors are starting to swirl about who will or will not be back for Season 6 of the Real Housewives of New York. Ratings were lower than the last few seasons after a big cast shake up when four cast members were fired. Andy Cohen has stated publicly that ratings grew throughout the season, and he thought it was a success. Perhaps he was telling the truth because Reality Tea is reporting that the full Season Five cast will be back – pending salary negotiations. It seems the new girls only make $40,000 a year – so they shouldn’t be much of an issue. Ramona Singer and LuAnn de Lesseps are bringing in $400.000 each. There might be a little bit of negotiation with them if they want to return. Ramona is playing nice with the new girls right now. She tweeted a photo of this smiling threesome at her Hurricane Sandy fundraiser last week. According to the RealityTea article, producers are considering adding a few more ladies to the cast. Filming was supposed to start in January, but has been delayed to February while they work out the details. That means that the three ladies below got together without the cameras rolling.
Bethenny Frankel has announced a Separation from Jason Hoppy
Bethenny has told the associated press that the couple has separated after two and a half years of marriage.
“It brings me great sadness to say that Jason and I are separating. This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family,” Frankel said. “We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority. This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.”
On her twitter feed, Bethenny tweeted the following after the news broke: “I am heartbroken. I am sad. We will work through this as a family.”
Later in the evening she tweeted: “Thank you all so much. You give me so much love, and I am so grateful. It feels like your words could get someone through anything.”
The announcement comes after weeks of leaks that the couple’s marriage was in trouble. Reality TV viewers watched as this couple fell in love, got married, had a child, and went through their first few years of marriage.
Real Housewives of Atlanta “Fools of Engagement” by RamonaCoaster
They are still in Anguilla and Kenya is still saying she is Gone With the Wind fabulous as she pirouettes to bed. When everyone returns to talk to Porsha, she asks if they took out the trash. Porsha emphatically states that she is more mature than Kenya
Kenya talks to Walter and says Porsha is living off her grandfather’s fame and Kordell’s fame and laying on her back for it.
The next morning Nene is in Kandi and Todd’s room and fills Kandi in regarding the fight. Nene demonstrates Kenya’s twirling around and how she is 40 and fabulous. Nene then confronts Kandi about how she feels about her. Kandi expresses how she feels Nene hates on her and Nene feels the girls are against her. Kandi thought when she met Nene they would get along but it didn’t work out. They agree that they never connected. They now understand each other and everything is all good. Todd is happy for them and jokingly cries over their make up. Nene is happy for Kandi. She thinks Kandi and Todd are short in stature but happy together. Then Gregg comes in and does the 40 and fabulous twirl.
Kordell and Porsha talk about what happened the night before. (Kordell is smart to hide in his room when he heard voices raised). Kordell asks his wife how she approached the matter. Porsha says Kenya pushed her to the limit and how Kenya came out of nowhere and attacked her and called her the B-word. Kordell thinks things got ugly and they all need to start acting grown up. Porsha is emphatic that she didn’t start anything.
It is the last day on the island. Kenya is still talking about what Porsha accused her of and tried to defend how she flirts with other men. They all decide to leave the house to go horseback riding except for Todd who is working. Kenya wants to have a group meeting with the girls to apologize about losing her cool. She actually apologizes to Porsha and Porsha in her talking head complains about how she tries to direct the apology and calls her a raisin. Kenya brings out that Porsha did call her a tramp and that she is no ones tramp. Meanwhile the men are talking about the women and their issues. Nene has an issue with how Kenya apologizes. Peter goes back in the house to get them out on the buses and Peter comes back to the bus to report how the women kicked his ass. Nene thinks Porsha didn’t accept Kenya’s apology and Kenya didn’t make a real apology.
The bus takes them to the beach to have lunch on a platform on the water as the waves are coming in wetting their feet. Kenya gifts Cynthia a book that Vanessa Williams wrote with her mother entitled You Have No Idea. Kenya exclaims Cynthia didn’t know Vanessa was the first black Miss America as she hands her the book autographed by her good friend Vanessa Williams. We see a flashback when Kenya states Vanessa Williams was Miss America 12 years before her. Cynthia states it was a compliment but in her TH Kenya states it is not a compliment if you are ignorant. The waves are about to sweep them out to sea as their lunch arrives. Everyone watches Peter horse back ride. (I don’t think that horse smell goes well with lunch.) Gregg encourages Nene to go horse back riding. Cynthia confronts Kenya about the incident at the Bailey agency and how she disrespected everyone. Kenya tells her she would never break another girl’s spirit. Nene is being helped onto a horse. I thought she was going to fall over the other side. Nene says “she had ridden some horses in her life but they just didn’t have four legs, okay?” Nene gets off the horse and downs a drink.
Kenya defends herself with telling a story how when she was younger she wore a lot of inappropriate clothing when a judge pulled her aside and told her she was styling herself crazy. Kenya appreciated the constructive input. Kenya even says one of the girls with the coochie and bootie crack contacted her to tell her thank you. Cynthia tells Kenya that she needs to support and respect people and they go back and forth until Kenya falls down on the sand yelling. (It’s her version of putting her fingers in her ears and saying lalalalala!) They all start laughing and the serious moment was broken. Kenya in her TH thinks it is good that they had a mature conversation and they gave each other a chance.
Nene wants a couple minutes of zen and Nene starts conducting an workout. All I see is legs and booties in the air.
It is the last night and they all go out to dinner. They talk about how much a baby costs and Kenya doesn’t care about the cost, she just wants babies. Kenya mentions a conversation she and Walter had the other day about eloping and how Walter said “who knows what is going to happen in three days.” Peter raises his glass for a toast to all the couples. In his last toast to Kenya and Walter, he says he didn’t think they were a couple and how Walter has a lot of pressure because he has less than 12 hours to pop the question. Walter says they talked about it but he needs to go at his own pace. Porsha is laughing in her TH and states how could anyone propose to her seeing her behavior on the trip. Walter says he might propose at a basketball game. They all share stories about how they got engaged. Kenya asked the lawyer how did she let Apollo know when she was ready to get married. Everyone says she got to close her mouth and stop putting pressure on the man but Kenya feels she needs to know if marriage is where they are headed. Kenya is listening and wondering what the hell just happened so she leaves the table. Walter follows her and asks what is wrong. She mentions the conversation they had three days ago and he clarifies what he said and how he doesn’t want to be pressured into marriage. Kenya doesn’t like his tone and she gets up to leave.
Kenya is sitting by a lamppost. The lawyer gets up to go check up on her. Walter states what he said to Kenya to the table and Nene says that he was unclear. The lawyer tries to comfort Kenya as she is crying. Apollo comes and tells Kenya to be patient and they all walk back.
