A chat with our favorite Real Housewife of New York

 

 

It took a while, but I finally managed to wrangle an interview out of Bethenny Frankel, the smartest and least neurotic of "The Real Housewives of New York."

The hold up? An exercise DVD, planning a wedding, honeymooning, labor, a baby girl

But she finally had to come out and talk. There's a new show to promote, "Bethenny Getting Married?" and baby needs new shoes!

Read my (email) chat with Ms. Frankel here

What to Watch on Thursday: Chris Rock and Adam Sandler join Kimmel

So You Think You Can Dance (9pm, Fox) - The top ten dancers are introduced.  

Real Housewives of New York City (9pm, Bravo) - Part one of a two part reunion show. Only watch this if you enjoy seeing grown women scream at each other. 

Bethenny Getting Married (10pm, Bravo) - Bethenny Frankel, the most reasonable New York housewife gets her own show. Adrienne says it's a welcome break from the craziness.

"Bethenny Getting Married?": A break from the craziness

With her sharp wit and common sense observations, Bethenny Frankel is an obvious choice to break out of "The Real Housewives of New York" and get her own reality show.

And "Bethenny Getting Married?" (Bravo, 10 tonight) comes at the
right time. RHONY has been kind of painful to watch this season, with Jill and Bethenny falling out and Kelly falling apart.

"Bethenny Getting Married?" is a nice reprieve; the drama here is of the normal type.
