It has not been the easiest of times for Bethenny Frankel, between her ongoing bitter divorce battle and the recent cancelation of her talk show. But, Frankel says, she is now beginning to feel "a little liberation."
"I am dating, and I am happy," Frankel, 43, told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live Tuesday night. "I'm good. I feel a little liberation, a little bit of freedom, just a little bit of not feeling so bad. It's been a really, really hard time."
The second chapter in the ghostwriting fight between Carole Radziwill and Aviva Drescher on Tuesday's The Real Housewives of New York City was filled with choice words, while Sonja Morgan's new intern orientation manual needs a major rewrite.
After spreading the rumor that Radziwill had used a ghostwriter to pen her best-selling memoir, What Remains, the "bookgate" fight between the two escalated at Drescher's housewarming party.
"You're so pompous and so elitist," said Drescher, 43.
"I don't talk about your parenting, don't talk about my career," snapped Radziwill, 50.
Tony Dovolani has gotten to know partner NeNe Leakes quite well over the last few weeks during Dancing with the Stars rehearsals – and one thing he's learned quickly: she isn't one to tone down the energy.
"God forbid I'm having one of those tough days, she'll start dancing with me and rubbing on me. I immediate have a smile on my face," Dovolani, 40, told PEOPLE backstage right after Monday night's show, where he and the TV personality were declared safe to move on to next week's competition. "We hit it off right off the bat."
Expressing his gratitude to fans for voting them on for another week, Dovolani said it will give the dancing duo "the opportunity to show off NeNe's real side," adding, "Everybody's got this perception of NeNe. I've grown to really respect her and adore her. I think she's actually a big teddy bear. She treats me like gold. We really have a good time."
If Part 1 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion was filled with knockout moments, Part 2 was chock full of, well, tasty morsels (and chocolate always helps to ease the tension, right?).
Here are the best "Snickers" from Part 2:
Kyle Richards and Carlton Gebbia continued their high-voltage rivalry, which started this season with her comments over Gebbia being Wiccan and ended with Richards calling her anti-Semitic.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta was filled with surprises on Sunday – including a surreal surprise party in Mexico for Phaedra Parks featuring a piñata filled with condoms. But the biggest surprise of all was the husbands brawling for a change.
NeNe Leakes's husband, Gregg, let Cynthia Bailey's husband, Peter Thomas, know just how unhappy he was that Thomas had approached his wife after Kenya Moore's ill-fated masquerade ball.
"You stepped up in my wife's grill," Leakes told Thomas after Moore attempted to hold a re-do of the disastrous couples' night pajama party that ended in fisticuffs. "If you ever come up into my wife's face like that, there's going to be a showdown … you disrespected me … Don't walk up on my wife without me present."
Sure, Lady Gaga has had her fair share of major cameos (Beyoncé Knowles, anyone?), but this was one we've been dying to see: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The stars of the hit Bravo show make their music video debut in Gaga's new single "G.U.Y" and it doesn't disappoint.
This is one story that won't have a happy ending.
On Tuesday's The Real Housewives of New York City, "BookGate" erupted as Carole Radziwill and Aviva Drescher exchanged heated words about writing their memoirs.
What started off as an innocent lunch – with Drescher asking Radziwill to share some writing advice with her as she completed her first book – turned into a mystery when Drescher seemed to imply that Radziwill had used a ghostwriter to pen her own bestselling memoir, What Remains.
"Is she insinuating I hired a ghostwriter to write my first book?" Radziwill wondered as the uncomfortable lunch progressed. "That's awkward and awful."
Let's get ready to rumble!
The women came out fighting on part one of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion Monday night, and it didn't take long before the gloves came off.
Although we all know host Andy Cohen is saving the best (or worst) for last, here were the knockout moments from Round One:
And the drama continues!
With the first installment of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills's reunion episode airing Monday night, a season's worth of fighting is ending in ... well, more fighting.
In this exclusive look at the March 24 episode, Lisa Vanderpump and Kim Richards exchange some, um, choice words as the former admits, "Maybe I just don't get her." (Watch below.)
Snakes, bats and chanting shamans were just a few of the things in Mexico to spook The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Sunday, but the most frightening encounter of all may have happened when Phaedra Parks walked in on her husband talking intimately to Kenya Moore.
"I do not do snakes, I do not do snakes, I do not do snakes," NeNe Leakes hilariously chanted upon encountering an anaconda, while a hyperventilating Porsha Stewart said, "When you see a snake as big as a building, yeah, I'm scared."
When the snake was picked up and hauled away from them, Parks, 40, said she hoped they were taking it to Jimmy Choo.
