We've already seen what Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, Bethenny Frankel, Kelly Bensimon, Alex McCord, Ramona Singer and Jill Zarin can to bring to the table but sooner or later two new faces will be entering the scene, making The Real Housewives of New York City a little bit crowded but certainly more interesting. Sonja Morgan and Jennifer Gilbert are the ones coming on board this season, and since not much have been revealed about them, it makes me wonder if these two housewives resonate the same kind of social pedigree we often see in the women who join this show. Let's take a closer look, shall we? Sonja Morgan Bravo describes Sonja as "a fixture of New York City society, running in social circles that include European royalty and top-notch designers." Quite frankly, not much has been revealed about this 46-year-old single mother in the press release besides the fact that she likes to travel, has worked as a model, has managed several restaurants across the city, and enjoys doing charity work. Sounds like Sonja could be a pretty good stand-in for Bethenny if and when she decides to leave The Real Housewives of New York City. To Read More Click Here .
As the "he said, she said" feud takes shape on The Real Housewives of New York City, two teams have seemingly formed: LuAnn, Kelly and Jill's group, and Bethenny and Ramona's group, leaving Alex as the impartial cast member who's caught in the middle of all the mess. And if "Dueling Labor Day Parties" is any indication, we can expect more division among the ladies in the third episode entitled "Fall in Manhattan." It's New York Fashion Week on The Real Housewives of New York City and for the women of Manhattan, this event is considered the cream of the crop. LuAnn throws a party to celebrate the event however, Bethenny and Ramona are noticeably not present, though not surprisingly. This might as well be round 2 of the dueling parties!

Though the second episode of The Real Housewives of New York City's third season was pretty tame compared to the catfights of the previous seasons, it wasn't short on drama. In fact, there were so many verbal bashings that this episode alone was enough to fuel fire between cast members off-screen. The root of all the hostility this season, as far as I can remember, has to do with two things: Jill Zarin's beef with Bethenny Frankel for not being there for her over the summer and Mario Singer's "countless" comment at a party, which LuAnn overheard. Unfortunately, both scenarios didn't happen during filming of The Real Housewives of New York City, but at least viewers are now having a field day over all the tension it has caused among the women and the men on this show.

Now that we've seen some of the drama go down on the season opener of The Real Housewives of New York City, it's time to move forward to other matters such as Bethenny Frankel's newfound love. If you've been following updates about Bethenny, then you already know a thing or two about the new man in her life, Jason Hoppy. Earlier reports revealed that Bethenny and Jason first met at NYC nightclub Tenjune in 2008. Then it was reported that Bethenny is engaged to Jason and pregnant with her first child. Now, it's time to see Bethenny and Jason's relationship take off in the second episode entitled "Dueling Labor Day Parties." To Read More Click Here .
Everyone seems to be on Bethenny Frankel's case. LuAnn de Lesseps certainly has an issue with Bethenny's attitude when it comes to paying the bills while Jill Zarin is still offended by Bethenny's snarky "hobby" comment and the fact that Bethenny wasn't there for her at the time she needed her most. But despite being the easy target these days, Bethenny remains nonchalant about everything and manages to keep her head high. "I don't really get offended very easily," Bethenny Frankel wrote on her blog. "All the women on the show have very thick skin, and deep down, most of us aren't very close friends. We embarked on an extraordinary journey together, and discord is part of that journey. My best friends are those that I've had for decades. I've grown to respect many of the Housewives and grown apart from others. Don't hate the player. Hate the game." Compared to LuAnn's issues, Jill's beef with Bethenny appears to be more noteworthy. When Jill's husband was diagnosed with cancer, all her friends would call and visit her often to show their support except for Bethenny, whom she expected to be there for her the most. And Bethenny telling Jill to "get a hobby" didn't help at all. For Bethenny, though, she doesn't have the time to focus on such petty matters. She also thinks that it's just natural for Jill to pick fights. "Jill likes to battle. She can't help it...I make snarky comments and can't resist a one-liner, and she can't resist a battle. I have no time to get caught up in minutia," Bethenny wrote, adding that she was pregnant, working on Skinnygirl margarita, preparing for her spin-off and focusing on her love life during filming of The Real Housewives of New York City. "Petty nonsense was low on the totem pole. I am not at battle. I don't need or look for allies nor do I rally troops to build me up. I can deal with anyone, anywhere, anytime on my own." Source Here
The Real Housewives of New York City's third season opener alone left us with plenty to talk about, from the shifting of alliances to the petty issues that have been blown to proportions. Quite entertainingly was the feud between Ramona Singer and LuAnn de Lesseps, who both went a little too far by making such a big deal out of something so trivial. Ramona and LuAnn's argument evidently stemmed from LuAnn overhearing Ramona's husband Mario referring to the recently divorced Countess LuAnn as "Countless." It would have probably been hilarious to witness the whole thing but instead, we only saw LuAnn confronting Ramon about Mario's remark during last week's yacht party. I think the issue could have been resolved easily if LuAnn found humor in the situation instead of being overly insensitive about it while Ramona could have let go of the issue and not made the whole thing about her.

Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, one of the stars on The Real Housewives of New York City, is back in the dating circuit once again, less than a year after she and her husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps filed for divorce to dissolve their 16-year marriage. According to People, the reality TV starlet is now seeing French wine distributor Jacques Azoulay. "I feel very lucky," the Real Housewives star tells People of her new romance. "We met at a party for a friend of mine who is a singer. The first time I saw him, I was like, 'Wow!' He's a wow kind of guy. He's just lovely." Countess LuAnn and Jacques Azoulay have been spending time most recently in the City of Light, where she's met some of his relatives. "I just got back from Paris for Valentine's Day. We went to see the parts of Paris that Jacques grew up in ... it went very well. [His family are] very nice people, lovely people. In Paris, we had a walk at the Place de la Concorde ... we did a tour at 2am after dinner. It was amazing," de Lesseps recalls. "There was nobody on the streets of Paris and it was lit up like a scene from a movie. It was so beautiful." "I never thought I would be lucky enough to find somebody like that again in my life," adds the Countess, who is set to return for the third season of The Real Housewives of New York City in March. Countess LuAnn is the fourth wife of Count Alexandre, a descendant of Ferdinand de Lesseps of the Suez Canal family. The couple reportedly split due to the Count's extramarital affair with an Ethiopian woman in Geneva. Sadly and ironically, the Etiquette Queen received the news from the Count via email. Source Here
