The Real Housewives of New York City

Nothing gets me more addicted to tv than reality shows. The Real Housewives of New York City certainly got my vote as one of the most entertaining reality shows . Love them or hate them , the housewives certainly kept us entertained with their varied personalities.

My favourite on the show was Bethenny Frankel who has since had her own show , and has written a book. I loved her strong ” don’t mess with me ” attitude and this was evident when she took on Kelly on the show. Bethenny is now married to Jason Hoppy and the have a beautiful baby girl called Bryn. There is no stopping Bethenny as her  empire grows with new projects on the rise.

Some of my favourite pics of Bethenny :
