Viewers aren’t buying that Bethenny Frankel is a fun-loving girl… Petition started asking Jay Z to cancel his partnership with Barney’s… Kylie is being accused of throwing a tantrum at a Beverly Hills hotel… Rihanna has burned everything Chris Brown ever gave her… and Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have been separated for months
Bethenny Frankel thought she could fool viewers into thinking she’s this fun-loving girl we all want to hang out with, but no. The viewers aren’t buying in and it’s showing in the ratings. And sources say that the audience showing up for the show isn’t too happy with Bethenny, either, claiming she only interacts with them when the cameras are rolling. She walks into the studio to tape and then walks right back out. And Bethenny’s no friendlier to her guests. A source says some of them have even emailed complaints to the show’s producers. The staff isn’t any happier. This source says she never interacts with them and isn’t around for production or planning meetings. However, the show scrounged up another source who says the audience feedback is “overwhelming positive on a daily basis” and that there’s not a single aspect of the show that Bethenny doesn’t approve.
Someone’s started a petition on Change.org asking Jay Z to cancel his partnership with Barney’s after two black shoppers filed lawsuits claiming they were racially profiled and accused of being thieves. The first lawsuit was filed by 19-year-old Trayon Christian, who was arrested and questioned by NYPD after he bought a $350 belt in Barney’s. The second lawsuit was filed by 21-year-old Kayla Phillips, who claims police stopped her after she bought a $2500 purse. Jay Z has a Christmas collection at Barneys he’s called “A New York Holiday.” So far, he has made no comment on the controversy.
On the heels of Scott Disick taking 17-year-old Kendall and 16-year-old Kylie Jenner to a 21-and-up club, Kylie is being accused of throwing a tantrum at a Beverly Hills hotel for refusing to serve her alcohol. According to “People,” Kylie was at the hotel with some friends, including her boyfriend Jaden Smith, when she ordered bottle service. The hotel refused, which caused Kylie to go into full-on “Do you know who I am?” mode. She proceeded to pitch a fit and then left in a huff, saying the hotel wasn’t worth her time and that it was “lame.”
According to “Now” magazine, Rihanna has burned everything Chris Brown ever gave her because of this line he cut on DJ Khaled’s single, “I’m Still.” The line was cut from the track, but now the unreleased verse has popped up online. In his rhyme, Chris raps about sharing his girl with his “homies” and about how everyone in the music industry has been with his “b****.” Rihanna took that personally and decided she’s SO done with Chris that she burned every letter and gift he ever gave her.
Even though people have been whispering that their marriage was in trouble for a while, now their reps have confirmed it. After being together for six years and three years of marriage, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have been separated for the past few months. They released a statement saying they still “love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family.” They have a 2-year-old son, Flynn.
