Project Runway Returns In August!

I have been enjoying Fashion Show and have felt that if PR didn’t come back soon, FS was definitely a worthy replacement. It has become clear that Lifetime had better get the show on the air soon or people just might have moved on.

Check out this timeline of troubles the show has faced and read the rest of the article for insights into season 6. 

Beginning in April 2008, the hit series became the disputed pawn in a trio of lawsuits between The Weinstein Company (which owns a majority stake in the show), NBC Universal (parent company to the series’ original network, Bravo), and Lifetime (which bought the rights for seasons 6 through 10).

The legal deadlock kept the fate of the entire series hanging in the balance for almost a year. ”By the end of production [of season 6],” says new exec producer Jon Murray, ”we started to joke around, like, ‘Are we going to have to show this to our friends and families in our living rooms?”’

Nope. Thanks to a resolution reached in April, “Runway” will soon be back in almost everyone’s living room. Season 6 premieres Aug. 20 on Lifetime, amid a blowout marketing campaign that is one of the biggest in the network’s 25-year history.

Bethenny Frankel’s Got The Best One Liners

If you saw this last week’s Real Housewives of NYC, you know that Bethenny is so funny with her sardonic sense of humor, just so sarcastic yet lovely. I think I want to be friends with her, although I think I would need to develop thick skin quickly. Anyway, watch the video after the jump of my favorite NYC Housewife. Continue reading

Bethenny Frankel’s Dating Tips For 2009

On the Real Housewives of NYC, my favorite Bethenny came up with some new dating tips after realizing that while Ramona’s were sound, but perhaps in a different era. On her blog, she wrote a lot but I thought it would be helpful to share this excerpt for you here.

1) No textual relationships.
Once you’ve launched a relationship, it’s fine, but tell a guy you’re not a textual person and they’ll finally call.

2) Think of your vagina as a vase.
Even if they do die, flowers should be sent when courting.

3) Spend weekends and holidays together.
If you’re not spending weekends and holidays together, he’s not your boyfriend.

4) Let the man be the man.
He chooses the restaurant, he absolutely should pick you up for a date and no matter how far out of his way, he must drop you off.

5) Easy on the booze.
Don’t get wasted on the first date, or your promiscuous side will come right out and you’ll end it before it begins.

6) It always ends up the way it starts.
Remember the first phone call, date, the way he treats you because things always come full circle and don’t waste time.

Check out her blog, it’s always a good read.

Kelly vs. Bethenny: Round 1

Watch this, it’s quite remarkable. Who do you think won this little battle between Kelly and Bethenny? Watch it at right around the 30 minute mark. 

I had some trouble posting the video, so click here to see it without compromise. 

Here are a few words that Bethenny has about the incident, published on her BravoTV blog

Kelly came onto the show thinking anyone actually gave a crap about her self-anointed fabulosity. Truthfully, none of us care about her superficial lifestyle, so I think my calling her out is something that caught her off guard. Truthfully, she never had anything against me. I had something against her. She is a complete phony and now she has been exposed and her small circle of New York supporters have now turned on her as well. The emperor has no clothes.

I may be harsh, abrupt and rough around the edges, but for God’s sake, I am real.

Kelly’s “journalistic” vocabulary consists of 2 words: foil and inappropriate. Maybe next week she’ll find some new words. I found it amusing that she told me I needed a “time out” and some parenting. I’ve gone 38 years with no parents, and if I decide to adopt some, Kelly isn’t on the candidate list. Jill and Bobby could be my adopted parents. Hell, I’ll adopt Silex before the Kellamity.

I will never be friends with someone inauthentic and disingenuous. I may be harsh, abrupt and rough around the edges, but for God’s sake, I am real. I don’t care how many “Datelineexclusive” sit down interviews you have with Jill Stuart – your saccharin- twirled-hair smile isn’t fooling me.

Real Housewives of OC: Tamra’s Morning Routine

Not too different from many people, except the house is much nicer and her “twins” are much rounder. But props to Tamra for keeping the nanny off camera.

NeNe Dishes on the OC Ladies

From her blog on Bravotv.com:

OK ladies, let’s get it onnnnnn! The claws came out last night. THE LIMO: All the trash talking about Gretchen behind her back just reminded me of Sheree and Kim. Too small to talk to someone face to face. Scared of a little competition. Needing to put someone else down to make yourself look better.

If there’s something you don’t like or wanna say about Gretchen, why not say it to her face and give her a chance to defend herself? It was really rude and unnecessary for Vicki to throw Donn under the bus in front of Jeana when they were discussing vacation plans. Vicki, you need to either tone it down a bit and appreciate your husband Donn or leave, because you could be blocking his happiness with someone else.

FYI: Let’s keep it real ladies. 

aviewofthec comment: She kind of talks about people a whole lot, does she not? Keep it real NeNe, keep it real indeed. (Yes, she claims to not have been evicted, it was all a misunderstanding, etc.)

Real Housewives of OC – Let The Drama Begin!

real-housewives-oc-vickiDoes anyone care about Vicki? Still, I guess it’s sad that her marriage seems to be wasting away and heck, maybe that’s why she’s so frigid. Chicken or the egg, which came first?

Watch it here.  Or watch the ladies at lunch here. I kind of like the new girl, Gretchen. Gold-digger or no?real-housewives-oc-gretchen

Kim’s Breakdown About Her Hair

Watch this: “Kim’s Breakdown – Videos – Bravo TV“, posted with vodpod

I’m not sure how to take this one, is she serious or is it a lie? She did or didn’t have cancer, or they thought she did but she didn’t “go that route”? 

I be confrused.
