Bethenny Frankel Fires Back! Explains Ramona Dress Saga and Kelly Returning

Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer

Last week’s episode of “The Real Housewives of New York” doubled as an infomercial for Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl products and ruckus about dueling brunches plus a (stolen?) dress. Bethenny took to her Bravo blog to share her side of the dress debacle and reflect on the episode.

“It was so nice to welcome you into my new home in the Hamptons. Home really is where the heart is. I love having a place to celebrate family and friends during the summer. The city is great, but there is nothing like a backyard and a place to just decompress. And, as I controversially explained, I haven’t had that stability in Manhattan (for reasons I cannot disclose) and have longed for consistency and a real home.”

I am already tired of the discussion about the things she can’t discuss, but I am glad that she has stopped with the “woe is homeless me” shtick. The old Bethenny was this way too – as I remember her. I am deeply bothered by her pretense that she isn’t a wildly privileged person. Happy, and thankful, Bethenny is far more tolerable. It is a beautiful home and she worked hard to earn it.  I’m sure the renovations will make it even lovelier.

“It is nice to see Luann and Ramona connecting again. They have more in common than we realized. We are all original Housewives, in this crazy ride from the beginning, and the evolution of their relationship will be something to watch.”

As much as I frequently enjoy Sonja and have liked other new ‘Housewives’ in the past, I have to admit that I am a sucker for seeing Ramona, Luann, and Bethenny together again. When the show started, Bethenny was the single woman trying to hock her products wherever she could, wondering if she would ever find her true love. Ramona and Luann were happily married to the, then, loves of their lives. Now they’re all out together for a single ladies celebration. None are single under optimal circumstances, but it’s nice that they all have each other… sorta’.

“I don’t really want to touch the Mario stuff. They’ve been married for a quarter of a century, and I’m sure a lot has transpired to get them to this place. I believe it will get better between them, eventually, and I have a tremendous amount of compassion and empathy for what Ramona is dealing with. She is nothing if not strong.”

I am impressed with Bethenny’s maturity and compassion.

“The Luann/Kelly scene was ultimately a nonevent. Basically, what you saw is what you got. I felt a little bit blindsided, but I ultimately have no issue with Kelly or any other current or former Housewife. Life has been so unexpected the past few years that those rifts from the past are really inconsequential.”

Wow, in print, Bethenny is an amazing woman. Something is lost in translation, for me at least, when she is confronting her fellow housewives.  If she spoke to them the way she writes about them, she would be my fave #RHONY!  She continues the statement with:

“I find them hilarious and certainly entertaining. I called out Luann, and what I respected most is that she copped. We had a great time. I put my past week with Ramona behind us, and we kept it moving.”

Bethenny addresses the much gossip about stolen borrowed dress she loaned Ramona that was never returned,

“As for the Ramona dress story, there is more to it, and we will get there as the season goes on. But there is one correction. Ramona was not wearing the said dress. It was hanging in my dressing room and is coincidentally the dress I wore when Heather was on my show.”

Help me out All About the Tea readers, was the Ramona/Sonja comment a true compliment or complete shade? Do we believe that the Luann moment with Kelly is now a thing of the past or is a grudge being nursed ready to unleash later? Time will tell.

I’m an exasperated soap fan who keeps hanging on – waiting for the daytime I once loved to return to its former glory! Hey, it doesn’t hurt to have a dream. I learned to love soaps thanks to my wonderful mother and grandmother. I’ll always have fond memories of daytime, most especially of ‘Another World’, my first stoap love. The ever great, but sadly defunct, daytime shows like Ryan’s Hope, Search for Tomorrow, The Doctors, Loving, and many others keep a special place in my heart, as well. ♦ Norrth Cafe's BlogTwitterFacebook

  • whose gonna do my hair!

    Bethenny is hard on my ears: She tires me out and I have to leave the TV and take a drink or a breather! She’s exhausting IMHO

    Bethenny thinks too highly of herself. I can tell she thinks she’s better/above the current ladies.

    my phone rang, and so shockingly, it was my boyfriend who has not called me for past 4 years now, and made an apology for the heart break, and told me that he is ready to be my back bone till the rest of his life with me. DR HENRY released him up to know how much i loved and wanted him. And opened his eyes to picture how love much we have share together. As I`m writing this testimony right now I`m the most happiest girl on earth and me and my boyfriend is living a happy life and our love is now stronger than how it were even before our break up. So that`s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to DR HENRY for the excessive work that he has done for me.
