First off – yes, we know we’re going to woman hell for mocking a fellow lady on her wedding day. But we.just.can’t.help.it. Bethenny Frankel, she of the Skinnys and the Housewives, married Jason Hoppy at the Four Seasons this weekend. Congrats are in order, obviously, but only after call her out for looking totally insane (with happiness, probs) on her wedding day. Maybe once we see her decked out in her dress sans hair curlers we’ll change our tune. But judging from what we’ve seen of Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen‘s outfits, we’re guessing her big day had a theme: crazy.

The same day Bethenny Frankel tied the knot, Alex McCord of “The Real Housewives of New York” posted this snapshot of her and hubby Simon van Kempen to Facebook, asking her fans, “Any ideas where we are headed?” We’re assuming their “rowdy” (according to fellow Housewives) tots, Francois and Johan were left off the invite.
Hey, wait a second. If you strip away the drama and the crazy, Kelly Bensimon is actually…sexy!? Could this be possible? The – what is she exactly – MILTLABNF (Mom I’d like to look at but not f*ck) was spotted hanging out poolside in Miami, and is insanely ripped in the abs department (or is just genetically advanced). It’s easy to forgot the looniness she lays down on The Real Housewives of NYC when blinded by her good looks. If Ramona looked this fierce without any clothes on, would it be easy to ignore her insanity too? (God, we hope not.)

Much to our delight, “The Real Housewives of NYC” premiered last night on Bravo, and some of the “stars” threw a party at La Pomme in Manhattan to celebrate. The snarky, pregnant, and sole independent-thinking housewife Bethenny Frankel skipped the shindig to hang out with Andy Cohen for the aftershow, but Ramona Singer, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, Jill Zarin, and Kelly Bensimon got glammed up for the bash. Which housewife looked the hottest? [Photos: Getty Images]
It’s okay if you don’t know who Kelly Bensimon is. In fact, you’re probably better off just admiring her from afar, where she’s still sexy, svelte and sweet on the eye. As anyone who’s suffered through the drama she throws down on The Real Housewives of New York can tell you, up close she’s as annoying as stepping in a giant puddle of slush in the middle of Times Square (yes, we did this today).
The Kellster is in Miami this weekend and crashing at the Fountainebleau Hotel, where she’s throwing a party tonight for her uh, fans? Friends? (Does she have either?) You can also catch her on the cover of this month’s Playboy magazine, or walking the beaches of Miami in this cute string bikini right now. [Photo: Splash News Online]
We may not love New York anymore, after learning that “Real Housewives” producers are thinking of dropping wacky wannabee richies Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen from the show. Their reasons are, as Rahm Emmanuel would say, “f*cking retarded.” According to an inside source, viewers don’t “connect” with the pair. Says the spy, “All of the other women’s story lines have interwoven, yet Alex and Simon have kept theirs separate. It isn’t nearly as interesting as the other Housewives’.”
Who the eff is the insider, Ally Zarin? We connect plenty with Alex and Simon. Why just this summer we were cavorting on St. Barths in the off-season, wondering how we could waste thousands of dollars, when we remembered Alex and Simon’s insane shopping spree on the island and followed their debt-inducing lead! And this past weekend we bought a $2 million dilapidated Brooklyn brownstone and made the decision not to renovate it, thanks to Alex and Simon’s inspirational design aesthetic. Sure, the source accuses Simon of being diva-ish and claims he wants to be an euqal part of the show even though he’s not quite a Housewife, but where else would we have gotten the courage to wear a Speedo year-round, if not for Sir van Kempen?
Maybe it would be easier for Bravo to understand our passion in French, the language we’re forcing our children to learn: Nous aimons Simon et Alex! Le Bravo serait stupide pour se débarasser de eux. En outre, le Français est une langue prétentieuse!
Take that, Bravo! [Photo: GettyImages]
Kelly Bensimon, former model, reality star, and socialite couldn’t find anything better to wear, so she grabbed her fuzzy bathmat and used it as a jacket. At least when she gets home to her beautiful hardwood floors, she can take that thing off and warm her little feet on her fuzzy rug jacket. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Bethenny Frankel appeared to be busting out as the breakout star after it was revealed she would be getting her own reality show, “The Skinny and the City,” and would be leaving the other Real Housewives of New York in the dust. Not so fast, says registered dietitian and author of The F Factor Diet, Tanya Zuckerbrot, who runs popular weight loss website www.skinnyandthecity.com.
“While I am obviously surprised by this news, I have always felt imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. That being said, we are taking the protection of our brand and trademark extremely seriously,” Tanya says.
That’s not the only problem she has. Bethenny’s engagement to Jason Hoppy may be going up in flames, or rather, a source says it never existed! “The engagement is fake,” a source claims. [Source: FoxNews.com; Photo: Getty Images]
Jon Gosselin loves to keep us on our toes. Last week he was in St. Tropez with “fiancee” Hailey Glassman and Christian Audigier, this week he’s living it up in the Hamptons with Michael Lohan, tabloid reporter Kate Major, and real housewife Jill Zarin. If Gosselin is still bent on “doing what’s best for his kids,” we have to question the logic of being in the company of any Lohan.
Michael Lohan hosted his guests for the weekend and somehow found the time between waxing his Iroc and punching things to tell People that his guests “[are] getting along very well.” Gosselin and Major, who works for Star, have been spending loads of time together over the past week and have even been rumored to be dating (as in, Star is reporting they are dating – this is just getting gross). And here we thought Mady was the most dramatic Gosselin. [Photo: GettyImages]
Bethenny Frankel is waving goodbye to her “Real Housewives of New York” gig and saying hello to her own show. “The show will follow her planning her wedding to fiance Jason Hoppy,” a source said. Her new show will reportedly be called “Skinny & The City.” Bethenny flaunted her “skinny” frame while playing around in the Montauk Yacht Club this weekend. Check out the photos of the super fit reality star lounging in her bikini. [Source: NYPost, Photo: Splash News Online]
