Bethenny Frenkel is out… Wendy Williams has sluggish sales… Justin & Hailey Bieber’s “Save the Date”… Jamie Foxx now living with Sela Vave… and Liam Hemsworth files for divorce from Miley Cyrus
Bethenny Frenkel is giving back her apple and leaving again. She announced on her Instagram yesterday that she won’t be back for season 12 of “The Real Housewives of New York City.” She was one of the original cast back in 2008, which is when Bethenny was in her late 30s and living in a tiny apartment. She wrote, “I was broke, single, had no family and no idea what the future held.” As it turns out, her future held MILLIONS, thanks to her Skinnygirl empire. Bethenny left the show in 2010 but came back in 2015. Fans have watched her go through marriage, an ugly divorce, the ongoing custody battle, the loss of friendships, her dog, and a man she might have married, Dennis Shields. He died of an accidental prescription overdose last August. Since then, Bethenny has found love with a film producer and real estate executive named Paul Bernon who lives in Boston. She even bought a townhouse there. But Bethenny says just because she’s leaving the show, we haven’t seen the last of her. She’s got her philanthropy work with her B Strong charity and a production partnership with Mark Burnett! Bethenny says she will be “producing and starring in shows which represent a shift in the conversation for women.”
Wendy Williams is supposed to be on her “For the Record…Umm Hmm!” tour, but she keeps canceling. Her upcoming shows in Cleveland, Philadelphia, Detroit and Atlanta have all been canceled. The venues are all posting the same announcement that said, in part, “…The same excitement, intensity and headlines that fueled the Wendy Williams and Friends presents ‘For the Record Umm Hummm!’ Comedy Tour has also fueled the cancellation of the scheduled show. Unfortunately, the goal and purpose of the tour has been sidelined by the headlines…. It is our utmost goal to return to the marketplace in the future.” But it sounds like that’s not happening anytime soon because ticket holders are being told they can get their money back. Even though her Sept. 21st show in St. Petersburg is still posted, don’t be surprised if they pull the plug on that any minute now. They can blame it on the headlines all they want, but sources say the tickets just aren’t selling.
They’re going to try this again! For the FOURTH time, Justin and Hailey Bieber have sent out “Save the Date” cards. TMZ has a picture of one, if you want to see it. It’s got comic book art featuring their faces and in the conversation bubble it says, “September 30th 2019 South Carolina.” Last week, Justin and Hailey were spotted in Palmetto Bluff. TMZ says Justin has been there before on tour, but Hailey’s family may also be familiar with it. SC beaches are HUGE for people vacationing from NYC. Celebrity wedding and party planner Mindy Weiss is handling all the details.
Page Six is reporting that Sela Vave has moved in with Jamie Foxx. He basically confirmed that with his Instagram Stories rant, which Sela turned around and posted on her Instagram feed. Jamie insists he’s just helping a young artist launch her music career, saying he did the same thing with Ed Sheehan, who once slept on his couch for 6 weeks, and Nick Cannon, who slept at Jamie’s house when he was only 13. Jamie said it’s no different with Sela, and he’s simply taking her under his wing and going her the opportunity. Are they dating? Who knows. He’s 51 and she’s either 19 or 21, depending on who you want to believe.
Brody Jenner turned 36 yesterday, so his estranged wife Kaitlynn Carter and her new girlfriend Miley Cyrus sent him a weed bouquet. The card attached even gave Miley top billing! That same day, Liam Hemsworth filed for divorce. He’s citing irreconcilable differences — you think?? Their official date of separation is to be determined. Liam and Miley had a prenup, so it should be a fairly clean break. The only sticking point could be how they divide their pets.
