Bethenny Surprised By Hostility In Divorce

Bethenny Frankel Lunches With Friends In NYC

Earlier this week we found out the judge had ordered a parenting evaluation in the divorce of Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy, since each one wants sole custody of their daughter, Bryn. Now Bethenny is opening up to People about her divorce battle, admitting things are getting pretty hostile.

“I really did think it would be amicable. I absolutely did. I wrote that entire statement [announcing the split, when Bethenny said she and Jason would "amicably parent" Bryn] myself. And every single word, I believed to be true.

“Someone said to me recently, ‘We see what we want to see.’ And I guess, at the time, that’s what I did.”

Seriously, Bethenny? She’s the one who filed the divorce papers first with a list of demands that surely ticked off Jason. What in the world was Bethenny seeing? Well, at least it sounds like she’s determined to turn this into a learning experience.

“The truth of the matter is, you go with your gut at the time. Whatever I’m going through now, I’m certain that I’ll learn something from it. When the clouds pass, I will figure out what the silver lining was.”

Bryn is a pretty remarkable silver lining!

Holly’s Body After Baby

The Animal Foundation's 10th Annual Best In Show Event

Whoa, mama! Did Holly Madison really give birth less than two months ago? You would never know she welcomed baby Aurora just last March! Holly was looking slim and trim at The Animal Foundation’s 10th Annual Best In Show event.

As you can see, Holly has her waistline back. She may have covered up somewhat with these adorable pooches, but there are plenty of pictures of Holly without the dogs. She is looking amazing.



Kardashian Family Vacation In Greece Minus KANYE WEST

The Kardashians Vacation In Greece

Pictures of Kim Kardashian’s bare baby bump popped up on the internet when she stepped out in a bikini in Greece, but she kept herself covered up while out on a yacht. Kim is enjoying a Kardashian family vacation. The entire clan reportedly is there except for Khloe’s husband, Lamar Odom, and Kanye West. Lamar has a  good reason for not being there: he’s playing in the NBA playoffs. Kanye… well, who knows why he’s not there?

Kim looks like she’s having a good time with her nephew, Mason. Khloe, Kris Jenner, Kendall, Brody, and Kylie all seem to be enjoying hanging out on the yacht, too. Then again, who wouldn’t enjoy it? This looks like a fabulous vacation. Great way to kick off the summer (even if we still have another month or so of spring)! I bet they planned this trip early to be sure Kim could still travel.

Bethenny Furious Over Parent Evaluation

Bethenny Frankel & Bryn Stop For Ice Cream In The Park

Bethenny Frankel took advantage of an afternoon with her daughter, Bryn, to just hang out. The mother-daughter duo enjoyed some ice cream in the park. This may have been a quiet moment for Bethenny, but her divorce from Jason Hoppy is heating up. Each one wants sole custody of Bryn, leaving the judge with quite a decision. A source dished to Radar Online:

“A parenting evaluation has been ordered by the court to try and settle their custody issues. Bethenny is furious that her parenting style and methods are going to be questioned. Bryn is her whole life, and she doesn’t want anyone to assess her mothering skills.

“She does not want a complete stranger to come into her home and pass judgment on the way she nurtures Bryn. Bethenny has trouble trusting people she doesn’t know, and this is not making her happy.

“Bethenny isn’t going to give up her fight for full custody and neither is Jason. They’re both very stubborn and the court is going to have to make the ruling for them.”

I’m not sure any parent wants to participate in a parenting evaluation, but honestly, what did Bethenny expect? There’s no clear reason to give one parent sole custody over the other, so the judge doesn’t really have a choice. It’s too bad Bethenny and Jason can’t just work out an agreement like mature adults.

Kanye’s Career Plans For Kim

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Step Out In NYC

The rumors continue regarding Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. Radar Online reports Kanye wants Kim to quit reality TV, and although he himself has appeared on ‘Keeping Up With the Karadshians’ before, those appearances are OVER. Kanye’s team reportedly has told him appearing on reality TV is bad for his brand (which wouldn’t be surprising). Here’s what a source claims:

“Kanye did appear on the show several times before he and Kim hooked up but that was because he was trying to get with her. Now that he has her, Kanye wants nothing to do with the reality shows. He most likely won’t appear at all in the upcoming season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Kanye won’t even let Kim talk to him on the phone while cameras are rolling. Kanye wants to maintain his private life.

“Kanye thinks the reality shows are a waste of time, and contribute nothing. He wants Kim to focus on her fashion designs, and maybe pursue an acting career. But he wants her to quit the reality shows.”

This actually wouldn’t surprise me if it was true. I have to wonder, however: why in the world would Kanye get so involved with Kim if he didn’t want to get involved with reality TV? That’s her CAREER. It doesn’t make sense, unless Kanye was solely focused on what he wanted.  And what about the rest of the Kardashians? I have to ask:




Reunited In New York City

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Shopping In NYC

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are spending some time together in New York City. Kim flew in from LA for promotional work for the Kardashian reality tv shows. Kanye must have flown in from Paris, where he’s working on his new album. I bet it’s nice for them to see each other again!

Although there’s been some buzz about Kanye spending most of the pregnancy away from Kim, stories are now coming out that Kanye has spent $100,000 for private jets so he could fly from Paris to LA for Kim’s doctor’s appointments, as well as to fly Kim out to visit him. Now he’s also said to be planning to quit working for six months after the baby comes. All these stories make one message clear: No One had better imply Kanye is an absentee dad. I, for one, am just curious to see how Kim’s going to manage her reality TV commitments while keeping the baby off camera.



Pampering Herself Post- Divorce Settlement

Semi-Exclusive... Pregnant Kim Kardashian Gets Her Nails Done

Kim Kardashian had reason to celebrate yesterday. She finally got the divorce she wanted from Kris Humphries. There was no apology, but who knows, he may not have demanded one. Kim treated herself to a mani-pedi yesterday afternoon.

Now the rumors are picking up that Kim and baby daddy Kanye West aren’t on great terms. Radar Online is keeping count. In the 111 days (ending yesterday, April 19), Kim and Kanye have been apart for 85 days and together for only 26. Kanye is said to be hard at work on an album in Paris. He reportedly wants Kim to join him there and give birth in Paris, but she’s said to be reluctant to leave her reality TV empire in the United States. The next Kardashian drama is already brewing…
