Some changes, some things the same on "Real Housewives of New York"

Season four of "The Real Housewives of New York City" (Bravo, 10 tonight) brings real change. Bethenny, now helming her own delightful show, is gone, and so is her wit and level-headedness.

That doesn't mean the new season is a snore. Nope there's plenty of drama. And even more crazy. A quick rundown, after a two-episode screening:

LuAnn: Though no longer a countess, she still walks around like she's royalty and the epitome of class, although most would agree that acting haughty is pretty tacky. Add being two-faced and passive-aggressive to that list. She has a new boyfriend. Naturally, he's French.

What to Watch on Thursday: "Real Housewives of New York" caps the crazy

100 Questions (8:30pm, NBC) - Charlotte dates a man who becomes obsessed with her, going so far as to get a tattoo of her face on his chest (is she dating Kasey?!), and her friends help her come up with a lie to end the relationship.

Real Housewives of New York (9pm, Bravo) - The third and final installment in this series of New York reunion shows may not have the Jill-Bethenny reconciliation we all kinda want, but it will have plenty of crazy (right). So grab your jelly beans and gummy bears and settle in for some satchels of reality television gold.

Deadliest Catch: Scariest Moments at Sea (9pm, Discovery) - Perilous moments experienced by crab, lobster, and sword fishermen in this look at three dangerous U.S. fisheries. 

The Ultimate Merger (9pm, TV One) - Who wants to date Omarosa? Twelve lucky suitors (all chosen by Donald Trump) line up in this competition dating show for their chance at the infamous shrinking violet.

Royal Pains (10pm, USA) - A movie star, played by wrestler Big Show, collapses and learns that what is ailing him is the same thing that has made him famous. I'm guessing it involves his pituitary glands. Also, Eddie (Henry Winkler) announces that he's staying in the Hamptons.

"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.

'Real Housewives' Kelly now accused of theft

Kelly Bensimon is quickly turning into one Housewife you do not want to cross.

First she was arrested for assault, and now she is being accused of stealing the jewelry designs she shamelessly hawked on this week's Real Housewives of New York episode (not to mention theĀ  criminally catty "This is you, this is me" exchange with Bethenny a couple weeks ago).

Apparently that owl design Kelly was so proud of (see necklace in photo) was actually designed by Celeste Greenberg, who worked with Kelly at Elle Accessories. Greenberg is suing Kelly over the stolen property.

What I'm wondering is when will they please arrest Kelly for jogging in the middle of traffic on Fifth Avenue. I mean, even if that's allowed, who would actually do that??

'Real Housewife' arrested for assault

As much as we love to tease the scrappy Atlanta ladies and all their screamed threats, wig-snatching, and restraining orders, it's actually a Real Housewife of New York who has chalked up the first arrest.

Kelly Killoren Bensimon, a NY Post society columnist and the newest member of Bravo's RHoNY reality show, was arrested last week for assaulting her boyfriend. The New York Daily News reports that 40-year-old Bensimon punched 30-year-old Nicholas Stefanov in the face, causing lacerations under his eye.
