Bethenny Frankel is calling the shots! In her latest list-of-rules the cast of The Real Housewives of New York must follow, no one is allowed to speak while filming about her never-ending and very-bitter divorce from Jason Hoppy.
“Contractually, no one is allowed to mention her divorce.” And in addition to that rule, “No one can speak about her daughter, Bryn, or Jason, either.” However, Bravo has said it’s “completely not true,” An insider told Radar Online.
The insider is also claiming that it’s Bethenny who is demanding that Carole Radziwill be kept on the show for Season 9 even though no one cares about her cougar relationship with the much younger vegan chef, Adam.
“Bethenny needs an ally on the cast, so it’s important for her to keep Carole around,” the insider explained. “Producers don’t want Carole for season 9, but Bethenny will get her way. She always does.”
But everyone knows Carole is tight with Andy Cohen and most likely he doesn’t want gal-pal Carole to go either. In the meantime, producers are said to be “furious” with Bethenny who has been refusing to film with Sonja Morgan, but their hands are tied since Bethenny appears to have more power than they do.
Carole has served in the role of Bethenny‘s BFF this season. In her Bravo blog last week, Radziwill, gushed that Bethenny has surpassed friendship and moved in the adopted family realm.
“We have family and we have framily. Bethenny and I are framily, and I couldn’t be more proud of her if I were her real sister…we skipped all that childhood dysfunction and landed right where we are now: “Hey, you’ve done something interesting with your life. So have I.” Carole wrote in her blog. She continues, “We share the same values, work ethic, and shoe size. Let’s be friends.”
For now, Bravo is putting all their eggs into the Luann de Lessep’s
rushed engagement basket to RHONY ladies’ man Thomas D’Agostino — which is just fine with viewers who are tired of Bethenny’s diva behavior.
