Jenny McCarthy To Join 'RHONY'? Actress Says Many Of The Show's
Jenny McCarthy is thinking about joining the cast of "The Real Housewives of New York City," and she has one Skinnygirl to thank for the idea.

During her radio show on Tuesday, McCarthy revealed that Bethenny Frankel has been trying to persuade her to go on the Bravo reality show. Frankel emailed McCarthy, and during her radio show, McCarthy explained, "She said, 'Hi Jenny,' and I thought, 'Oh my God that's so weird, I'm watching the housewives of New York right now."

McCarthy explained that Frankel, who has never reached out to her before, asked her if she wanted to join the franchise.

'Real Housewives Of New York City' Season 7, Episode 19: THE FIN
“I don’t think there’s any other way to begin a new life than to have a big party,” says Ramona.

Before the big night, Ramona and Sonja hang out at Sonja’s house and Ramona tells her how proud she is of her fashion coup. Sonja asks her about the fight she had with Bethenny. Ramona confesses she told a piece of gossip to Heather about Bethenny’s first marriage and she realizes she should not have done that. Heather told Bethenny and that started the fight at the show. Ramona feels she's always under attack by the other “girls.” Now that they are both free, (Sonja from her debt and Ramona fr...

'Real Housewives Of New York City' Season 7 Episode 18: Model Be
The clothes make the housewife.

Sonja's fashion show, where she introduces her new line to the sartorial world, is imminent. Models need to be chosen to strut the catwalk, and she enlists the help of Bethenny and Heather. So, of course, an argument ensues over which girls to pick, due to the one-upmanship about whom is the smartest, most successful businesswoman in the room.

Once again, someone challenges (as in asks a question of) Sonja’s branding team. Like Bethenny before her many episodes ago, Heather asks the marketing people where they see the brand in department stores, vis-à-vis...

'Real Housewives Of New York City' Season 7 Episode 17 ‘Carole’s
“Life doesn’t work out the way you plan it.”

So says Carole, who has arrived in London with Dorinda as her travel companion. Carole goes to the soon-to-be gutted church that has her husband Anthony’s ashes, and meets the priest to get the urn. She is in good spirits and speaks very eloquently about Anthony, then breaks down when says she wishes she had “one more day” with her husband. The priest tells her that having the urn returned to her is a great opportunity to be with him again.

It has been fifteen years since Carole has held the urn, and is impressed with how beautiful it is; even...

Real Housewives Of New York City Season 7 Episode 16: 'London Ca
Every now and then, a reality show actually gets real. This is one of those times, with a very poignant episode that has Carole embarking on a trip to England -- with castmate and fellow widow, Dorinda by her side -- to retrieve her husband Anthony's ashes from the church where the urn has been housed for the past fifteen years, because it is being torn down.

Carole was married for five years to JFK Jr.'s cousin and best friend, Anthony Radziwill. Carole eventually became best friends with John Jr.'s wife, Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy.

Carole and Anthony met as journalists at ABC News. She c...

'Real Housewives Of New York City' Season 7 Episode 15 Recap: 'D
“Be cool. Don't be all, like, uncool,” commands the Countess.

What led up to this royal directive?

The Turks and Caicos vacay is coming to an end. We pick up where we left off at the “to curse or not to curse” dinner where Dorinda starts to have a meltdown and Heather takes her to a different part of the hotel so they can have a private talk -- because after all, they're both Berkshire girls.

Sonja tells Luann the discussion, which got out of hand, is all her fault because she started the “It's not countess-like to curse,” ball rolling. Luann denies, denies, denies.

Ramona trails Dori...

'RHONY' Continue Their 'Turks And Caicos' Vacation

7/8/2015 9:34am EDT
Are there no friends of Bill W. on these islands? I think all these ladies -- not just Sonja -- need a meeting and to take at least 12-steps down the beach.

We pick up where we left off last week with Bethenny telling off Ramona. "It's Ramona's world, we just pay rent." She says she doesn't know where her soon-to-be divorced friend's entitlement comes from. "She comes from nothing," said Bethenny. "If she'd grown up with money and servants I would understand why she thinks everyone should do her bidding, but she didn't, so I don't get it." After ranting while chopping ingredients for the m...

Real Housewives of New York City Season 7 Episode 13: 'Crazy Time In Turks And Caicos'

7/1/2015 8:27am EDT
"She's just so much work," says Carole to roommate Heather about Sonja aka Lady Morgan.

This thought is seconded independently by Bethenny and Ramona at the pool."She's her own worst enemy," says the blonde of her longtime pal.

Then the two frenemies start talking about Mario, and Ramona breaks down crying hysterically. "I want to fix this so badly." In a touching moment, Bethenny holds her and cries for her. (Or is B thinking of her own marriage and crying for that?)

The next morning at breakfast, the ladies get a visitor who will conduct a private yoga class for them. Sonja and Dor...

Real Housewives Of New York City
"Shut the f#%k up!" Wow, that Bethenny sure knows how to take command of a room.

Before she does that though, we return to where we left off last week: at the launch party for Luann's fashion line.

Sonja asked Heather what she missed by not attending the pre-party: "Ramona ripped Kristen a new one." Always keepin' it classy.

Bethenny confronts Kristen and tells her that she has a sourpuss face and always looks like she's coming for her. They actually talk it out -- in a really loud way -- and actually sort of make up.

Sonja assesses Luann's clothing line, saying it's for the masses not ...

'Real Housewives Of New York City' Season 7 Episode 11: 'Bethenny Vs 'Dumb' Blonde Kristen'

6/17/2015 8:53am EDT
Blondes vs brunettes. How cliche. How New York Housewives.

Bethenny invites Ramona, Dorinda and Sonja to a cupcake decorating party. Ramona shows up with her Ramona Wine so they can set buzzed as they frost and sprinkle the desserts.

Since Sonja is about to settle her 7 million dollar judgement, she invites the ladies to vacay on the Turks and Caicos Islands. (You'd think she'd need to start saving her money, no?)

Kristen meets Luann at a designer shoe store for a little shopping and gossip. They discuss AOA and don't think a sports bar is very Ramona. Then they discuss Bethenny and how...

'Real Housewives Of New York City' Season 7 Episode 10: 'Skinny Girl VS Yummie Tummie'

6/10/2015 8:21am EDT
Heather and Bethenny
"Have a meatball." That was Heather's straw that broke Bethenny's back last week in the Berkshires, prompting the two of them to scream across the table at each other.

And so this week, we pick up where we left off with the Skinny Girl and Yummie Tummie yelling at one another. Heather is a fixer and genuinely wants to help Bethenny, who is not in the market for a new mother.

After Bethenny breaks down, she calms down and decides to hug it out with Heather. "I'm over myself," she says, much to my agreement -- I'm over her, too. "I don't want attention. I'm holding on by a thread," adds B...

'Real Housewives Of New York' City Recap: Berserk In The Berkshires

6/3/2015 8:51am EDT
Let Dorinda’s Berkshire Birthday Bash begin.

The ladies show up at Dorinda's upstate home to celebrate her for the weekend (husbands will follow). If you recall from last week, Bethenny can't attend because it's her weekend with Bryn. No one is sure whether or not Sonja is coming.

Everyone is in awe of Dorinda's palatial home that her late husband bought her. Ramona has asked her AOA business partner, Pete, to be her guest, but needs advice about whether it’s a date or not. The consensus is that indeed it is a date.

Ramona takes Kristen aside and tells her about the evening that was host...

'RHONY' Dishes Out The Drama With Champagne And Caviar

5/27/2015 8:50am EDT
Now that we have finally finished celebrating Ramona’s never-ending birthday, we get to commemorate Dorinda’s.

The two friends go for drinks and talk about the party weekend Dorinda is throwing for herself at her home in the Berkshires. Because no story can’t be topped by Ramona, she shares that Mario has been contacting her. Now that he and Avery have made up, he wants Ramona and his family back, but she did not elaborate past that.

Carole is running for the board of her building. Anyone who knows about the process knows that basically you throw your hat in the ring, write up a summary o...

'RHONY': Bethenny’s Drama Trumps Others

5/20/2015 8:37am EDT
There’s housewife drama, and then there’s Bethenny drama. Bethenny wins. We all know her story from her first go round on the show, then from her two spin-offs, and of course, from her talk show: no relationship with her horse trainer father; and being estranged from her mother, who had a number of men, one was a stepfather, John, who Bethenny remembers fondly albeit the fact that he used to physically abuse her mother. After twenty-five years she is going to reunite with him. But first, there’s a party to go to.

Ramona, or shall we call her She Of The Never-ending Birthday, is still celeb...

'RHONY': ‘Sonja Craps Out In Atlantic City’

5/13/2015 9:50am EDT
sonja and bethenny
It's Ramona's birthday weekend in Atlantic City (or as Dorinda calls it, “Atlantic Titty” – home of big hair, bad shoes and short skirts.) Let's roll the dice and see what happens.

What would a trip with the housewives be if it didn’t start off with a fight -- a screaming, deafening, talk-over-each-other knock down drag out.

Heather is livid. The plan was for all the wives (except for Luann and Carole, who are traveling on their own) to meet at 10:30am at Sonja’s house where a stretch SUV would take them to New Jersey.

When Heather, Dorinda and Kristen arrive, Sonja is not ready. Instead...

'RHONY' Recap: Mind Your Business

5/6/2015 9:39am EDT
One's too young and the other's too fat and flirtatious; these are the men who beg the question: With all the men in NYC, this is the best alleged wealthy socialites can do? It also brings me back to the real issue of why can't Bravo find actual real wives to be on this show?

Oh well, since this is what we've got to work with, here goes...

This week's episode is entitled "Mind Your Business" (which no one ever does) and bears resemblance to Noah's Ark, with all the wives getting together two-by-two.

Bethenny meets Sonja for lunch because she's heard so much crap about the blonde bombshel...

'RHONY': When Cougars Play

4/29/2015 9:02am EDT
It’s May/December romance time – at least for the New York City housewives. And may I say, “Good luck with that.”

They looked more like desperate housewives when they went out with their boy toys to Bethenny’s birthday party.

No big bash, just a few friends in a very lovely private room at a fancy restaurant. Sonja was escorted by Dominic, the puerile plaything she met, courtesy of The Countess, at the nightclub last week. He brought his other young friend for Luann. They both brought another 24-year-old friend. (They all looked as though they could have been friends of Luann's high schoo...

'RHONY' Duke It Out Over Brunch

4/22/2015 9:32am EDT
Only this bunch could turn a late breakfast into a Battle Royale.

Still hangin' at Luann's in the Hamptons, Heather, Kristen and Carole get a text from Ramona about brunch in town, but they are already expected by Bethenny who is making brunch for them at her home.

Luann -- Ms. Manners -- advises that they should all go to both in an effort to keep the peace. Carole doesn't want to go to either. She wants to stay behind and go on a boat ride with Adam, Luann's personal chef, with whom there is a mutual flirtation.

But no. She and everyone from Team Luann go to Bethenny's. Ramona & Co. (D...

'RHONYC' Brings The Crazy To The Hamptons

4/15/2015 10:32am EDT
The New York housewives bring the crazy out to Long Island's East End.

Ramona and Dorinda head to Ramona's East Hampton spread. Meanwhile, Heather and Carole are on the way to Sag Harbor to Luann's new house. First though, they make a pitstop at Lu's old place where The Countess is selling off her possessions, which is bittersweet.

Dorinda and Ramona show up at the estate sale as well and Ramona tells The Countess she owes her a major apology. Luann agrees to forgive, but will never forget the vicious remarks Ramona made to her when she was going through her divorce from the Count.

That ...

'RHONY': The Skinny Girl Is Back

4/8/2015 8:30am EDT
“I’m not a housewife, but I am real.” The Skinny Girl and her big fat mouth rejoins Luann, Ramona, Carole, Heather, Sonja, Kristen and newbie Dorinda, who have all made a career out of pretending they are New York Socialites. (As a native New Yorker, I know Manhattan upper crust when I see them; this bunch ain’t it.) For the record: only two of the eight cast members are married. (This is an issue across the entire franchise. Time to change the "housewife" name or get people who actually are, no?)

We’re first reunited with Bethenny when she pulls up in front of the famed Essex House hotel ...

Bethenny Frankel Confirms Split From Boyfriend Michael Cerussi:
Bethenny Frankel is single again after splitting from businessman boyfriend Michael "Mac" Cerussi III.

"I wish that my dating life was as colorful and exciting as it's written about, but right now I'm kind of at a standstill," the Real Housewives of New York City star revealed on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live during an interview with host Andy Cohen.

The couple reportedly weren't that serious and split weeks ago, according to E! news, and the financier also wasn't very fond of being in the spotlight thanks to Bethenny's fame.

Ramona Singer's husband Mario was recently photographed dining with his mistress, Kasey Dexter. The couple, known for appearing on "The Real Housewives of New York," hit a rough patch in the spring after Mario was caught cheating; however, they got back together in March.

Apparently, he is back to his womanizing ways. A source told In Touch: "She threw Mario out in late July because she discovered he was back with his mistress."

The magazine has an exclusive photo of Mario and Kasey sitting close and comfortably together at Anassa Taverna in New York City. The week prior, the pair was spo...

When the current baktun of the Mayan calendar comes to a close on December 21, 2012, many prophecies say the world will end.

Mind you, this prophecy comes from a race of people who couldn't predict their own civilization's end, so how credible are they in predicting the end of the world in our time?
