The Real Housewives of New York are back- and BOY does it look like this season will be full of drama!
As Popdust previously reported, Bethenny Frankel has returned to the show that made her a household name, along with Carole Radizwill, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Heather Thomson, Kristen Taekman, LuAnn de Lesseps and new cast member Dorinda Medley.
Bravo has kindly released a nice long trailer for the new season, and the reason it's so long is because SO MUCH stuff happens. Bethenny and Ramona are both going through very public and very ugly divorces, and the Skinnygirl mogul doesn't exactly hit it off with Heather.
Then there's Sonja just going full trashy, LuAnn sleeping with everyone, and Carole admitting to having sexy dreams about Bethenny. oh, and there's fighting. Lots and lots of fighting!
Watch the trailer and don't miss the Real Housewives of New York on Tuesday, April 7 at 9 pm on Bravo!
Using a Black dialect isn't a meme—it's cultural appropriation.
As Black Lives Matter protests have rightfully taken the world by storm over the past couple of months, we're long overdue for thorough evaluations of just how often aspects of Black heritage have been co-opted by white audiences.
It should be obvious that much of fashion and music as we know it today was invented by Black people. We (hopefully) all know by now that we can no longer accept Blackface and use of the n-word by non-Black people as the norm—and Internet users have tried "canceling" offenders in the public eye, with varying degrees of success.
Bethenny Frankel has confirmed her return to the Real Housewives Of New York!
As Popdust previously reported, Bravo was in negotiations with the former cast member in an effort to save the New York edition, which has suffered increasingly bad ratings since she left in 2010.
Although Bethenny previously gave the impression she would never return to the Housewives, she has since changed her tune (Jill Zarin not being there obviously made that decision easier!).
"I'm genuinely excited, with a side of slightly nervous, for my return to The Real Housewives of New York City," the 43-year-old told Us Weekly. "Bravo has always been the place on television where I have the freedom to be unfiltered, honest and inappropriate, with an audience who has been with me from the beginning. I can't wait to see what this next chapter brings for all of us. Watch what happens!"
It's yet to be confirmed which of the other New York Housewives will be returning but you can pretty much bank on Heather Thomson, LuAnn de Lesseps and Carole Radziwill being asked back.
"Bethenny is one of the most popular Housewives in the history of the franchise," said Andy Cohen, "and I couldn't be more excited she is coming home to Bravo!"
When Bethenny was last on the show in season four, she was pregnant and engaged. Since then she has had daughter Bryn and gone through a highly acrimonious divorce with ex-husband Jason Hoppy.
"I'm such a different person and in such a different place than when I was on first season," said Bethenny. "Slightly exciting, a little bit of anxiousness, but it feels fresh. It doesn't feel like [how] I felt going into the third season of the Housewives. There was just so much muck and I just didn't feel it was good energy."
The Skinnygirl mogul won't reveal if Bryn will be on the show, possibly because she just doesn't know yet. Jason would have to sign off on that and considering his behavior so far, it doesn't look likely.
"When I went onto Housewives when I was younger, I didn't have family, I didn't have a business, I didn't have partners. I think basically the important thing is how I'm just being honest about my perspective... Ironically, I'm never a Housewife when I'm a housewife!"
Welcome back Bethenny! PLEASE bring Alex McCord back with you!
