When Bethenny Frankel returned to The Real Housewives of New York City this season, it was without Jill Zarin, her former friend with whom she fell out on national TV before both left the show.
Frankel, 44, discussed their season 3 feud recently for RHONY's 100th episode special.
"Jill liked to control the process. She had like a big plan that she was going to take me down, you know? And it backfired in her face," she told Andy Cohen."Whoa, this is one cunning bitch."
Grey's Anatomy turned into Sophie's Choice tonight, and it was not fun. Not fun at all.
It all started when a woman birthed a set of twins who turned out to have tumors on their livers. Karev needs two livers in order to save the two babies, but only the dad is a match. Which means Karev has to choose which baby lives and which dies. See? Alex's choice.
SEX. Everyone's doing it! It's the hot new craze sweeping Middleton University, hipper than jukeboxes and hula hoops and whatever drugs kids are doing in college these days. Everybody's talking about "sex," and it's even managed to rule the conversation at the offices of Keating & Associates. Now, HTGAWM has always been a risqué show, but the season's third episode was a blush-inducing, highly combustive swirl of penises and vaginae that made season 1 look like The Wiggles.
Sibcest! Orgasms! Annalise picking out sexy dresses! Sex was on everyone's minds this week, and not just because of the case-of-the-week's client in peril: a holistic sex worker who founded her own sex party-throwing clinic, only to be put on trial when one of her clients has a heart attack mid-coitus. She's on trial for murder by vagina, as Annalise puts it, and it's quickly discovered that she actually did kill her client. But Annalise pins it on the dead man's jealous wife and gets Tanya (played by The Fosters' Sherri Saum) off. Tanya, of course, is horrified; Annalise is pretty chill with it.
Overall, this week's episode looked a whole lot like last week's: Liv and Fitz are frozen between giving up and giving in, Mellie is in pain but trying to spin it into professional growth, Abby is frazzled, and Quinn, Huck, and Jake are half-goofing off, half-working back at OPA.
But despite a lack of external change so far, some our fair characters are undergoing quite a bit of internal growth – they're learning to make decisions and stick to them, to go after what they really want, and to try saying "yes" to things (looks like Shonda Rhimes may have used her own Year of Yes as inspiration … Wait, was last week's conclusion just a really subtle book plug?).
Things seem to be looking up for Kim Richards.
"She's doing really well – she's doing really well right now," her younger sister Kyle told PEOPLE Thursday night at the Global Lyme Alliance inaugural gala in New York, where their Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costar Yolanda Foster was honored for her advocacy work.
Kim, 51, has had a difficult year. Once sober, the former child star was arrested in April and then charged for trespassing, resisting an officer and battery on a police officer. Having struggled with substance abuse, she checked into rehab shortly after the arrest.
