Bethenny Frankel Is Considering Second Baby

SHE LOOKS SCARY AS FUCK.
The RH Syndication Deal Causing Problems and Alex/Simon talk Season Four of NYC
As reported earlier , NBC Universal sold the "Real Housewives" franchise to local stations. However, it appears the Real Housewives themselves where aced out of the deal. According to informed sources, they will not receive any "residuals". This was the reason Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak refused to talk about anything at the "Real Housewives of Atlanta season 2 reunion. Now there are rumblings from some of the others.
Will Alex McCord – and her uber-metrosexual husband Simon – return to The Real Housewives? We’ve heard rumblings that they won’t come back to the New York edition since April. (Note: those stories were allegedly put out there by arch-enemy Jill Zarin)
And now there’s chatter that money – and Bravo’s alleged stinginess with reimbursing their Housewives for baiting viewers with intense drama - might be a factor in such a decision.
“Bravo hasn’t decided yet whether season four is coming back,” Simon told Crushable at a GLAAD rooftop party and benefit last night. “It probably will and if we’re invited back, we’ll probably go back. Maybe.”
“We’ll see,” said Alex.
Alex, looking sleek in a turquoise dress, said she wasn’t sure that she would return to the show if BFF Bethenny Frankel dropped out.
“I don’t know,” she told Crushable. “I mean Bethenny’s a friend. We’re both crazy busy ,so we hardly ever see each other. But we were together this weekend. And she and I are good.”
A Bravo representative did not immediately return a request for comment on reports the Housewives are not happy with their paychecks.
Meanwhile, Alex and Simon mingled and partied on the roof of New York’s 230 Fifth nightclub, alongside Bethenny, Johnny Weir, Jill Zarin’s interior designer and various drag queens from RuPaul’s Drag U series on Logo.
“It’s important to support organizations like GLAAD or marriage equality or anyone that’s working for the LGTB community,” Alex said. Because the thing is, ’til it’s no longer an issue, you have to keep talking about it.”
Given the popularity of Housewives among the gay community, would Alex and Simon consider themselves gay icons?
“I would never consider myself an icon – be it gay or anything else!” quoth Simon.
To that, Alex responded: “I would never consider myself a gay icon either. Although, I’ve been surrounded by gay men since I was about 13. So whether it was my cousins or my friends in high school or my friends in college, you know, it just is what it is.”

DANIELLE HITS NEW LOW IN INTERNET WAR WITH ASHLEY
It seems Danielle Staub continues to hit new lows, even after the release of the self-leaked sex tape that came out earlier this year.
The Crushable blog is reporting that Danielle encouraged some crazed fan of the show on twitter, after he made some disturbing remarks about Ashley Holmes.
Twitter user @PriinceEdwiin tweeted the following to Danielle: “ItsMyBDAYToday And I Want @_ashleyholmes 2 kill herself & videotape so I can sit back, relax, & share the popcorn w/ @DanielleStaub.”
Danielle then tweeted back: “HAPPY BIRTHDAY boo!!!! May Every wish come true!!”
And despite the public outcry, Danielle has yet to take down the status. The story even makes this week’s issue of Life&Style with a “source” close to Ashley’s mom Jacqueline Laurita telling the mag, “No matter what happened between Danielle and Ashley, Danielle is the adult,” says the insider. “She’s a mother. What if someone said something like that about her kids? How would she react then?”
This makes me 10% more excited about DC... maybe it gets better as it gets going...
