Kelly Bensimon And Bethenny Frankel In Talks To Return To RH-NY

I'm not sure how they will pay for it, but if it does happen then Miami will be gone for sure and it wouldn't shock me to see OC take a one year break. There is a lot of buzz right now about Kelly Bensimon and Bethenny Frankel returning to Real Housewives. They are mortal enemies which guarantee ratings and the franchise needs a big boost in some city to keep waning interest flagging. New York almost didn't even get aired this time around but the producers want to keep it because it is currently the least expensive to shoot. That would change. Kelly and Bethenny are asking about quadruple what a regular Housewife would get paid. There is talk they would only have to actually hang out together a few times and those of course would be what you would end up seeing because they both know what their roles would be. It is an interesting idea but would Bethenny take a step back? Kelly thinks she has a million other things going on but has jumped into the deep end with the conversation. Kelly might be back on board even if Bethenny doesn't come back, but Kelly wouldn't be able to get as much money per episode.

Poor Jill Zarin. She'd return for free.

Kelly-----YES PLEASE!
Bethany-----No thanks
Together===ABSOLUTELY!
Did you know Jill Zarin is good friends with Dina Lohan?

Only if they'd send them both back to Scary Island. And keep them there.

These "real housewives" make me stabby.

Carol Radziwill told Andy Cohen about the rumors of Jill and Bethenny being asked to return (no mention of Kelly) on "Watch What Happens Live" last night. She said Aviva claimed Carol and Heather would be fired and Jill and Bethenny would take their places. The look on Andy's face was priceless. I don't think it's gonna happen. I do miss Krazy Kelly, though.

((Salivating))

witwritergirl said...

Would totally watch because Kelly is a hot bag o'crazy!

Eros said...

I would watch rhony again if they brought them both back. Now if they bring one back, hells no. They aren't interesting alone, only when they're together. Miami hws are boring. They should get rid of that franchise. Oc is boring too now. So underwhelmed by all the hws shows as of late.

Derek Harvey said...

Remember when Jill made a surprise visit to scary island?
"HELLLLOOOOOOOWWWWW everyone!!!!"
Bethany started crying and Ramonas eyes were gonna pop out her head lmao

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

SURRRRPrrrise! Aren't you happy to see me??!!

Anna Belle said...

These shows are just all a massive joke-none of these "housewives" are nearly a rich as they claim, they are just all b*tches married to con-artist

Courtney said...

I like the new cast on RHONY - it's one of my favorite cities. It's already better than BH was all season long

Derek Harvey said...

k--lolll
I cant believe Ramona got drunk with Aviva! This will NOT end well...

VIPblonde said...

@Courtney Agreed!

car54 said...

I don't think this will happen.

crila16 said...

No Bethany...don't do it. You've come a long way.

New Life and Attitude said...

Oh that would be a hot mess that I would love to see again.

alisontheoriginal said...

See - I thought yesterday's blind about the gay bf was about her! I was right! j/k I don't know if I was right. :(

sandybrook said...

I got the blind right yesterday y'all!! And I thought I was j/k!
*takes a bow, takes a seat*

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

D-- maybe we should take up a fund to buy some Skweez? Surely that would cheer her up.

Fabric fabric fabric!

AKM said...

I'd watch again if they brought them both back, but ONLY both. Jill and Alex can come back, too.

@Derek and Kristin: "A gift bag? A GIFT BAG?! Why would she GIVE me a GIFT BAG?! I mean, that's so creepy! (sobs)"

califblondy said...

OMG, Jill is going to have Bobby kill Andy if this is true. I might watch again if these ladies came back. I just got bored with all of them. Same stuff over and over.

Looziana Magnolia said...

I saw that last night too. I figured if the rumor is coming from Aviva, I'd take it with a grain of salt. And it seems like Andy pretty much denied it.

Persiaa said...

I would love to see crazy Aviva and crazy Kelly get into it. I like Bethany, but she would throw the balance off.
