There’s already been some drama behind the scenes on Bethenny Frankel’s new daytime chat show, months before it starts.
Sources tell us the former “Real Housewife” is “very particular and difficult,” and her behavior has upset some staffers at the Ellen DeGeneres-produced show, which is headed into pre-production.
We’re told that Frankel’s executive assistant, named Marilyn, quit after just a few weeks, saying she couldn’t work with the Skinnygirl mogul.
“Marilyn quit after less than a month because Bethenny was so mean to her,” a source said. “Marilyn has a lot of experience working with celebrities and complained she had ‘never been treated this badly.’
“They have been interviewing other assistants, who had to sign nondisclosure agreements and were told not to talk to Bethenny unless she talks to them first. They have interviewed more than 40 people, but she doesn’t like anybody.”
While a source close to Frankel confirmed that things with the assistant “didn’t work out,” she insisted there’s complete harmony between Bethenny and her team. “They are testing out assistants. It is a very particular job with a lot involved, managing Bethenny’s TV and business interests. But there is absolutely no division between Bethenny and the staff on the show. For many of them it is a dream job. There’s lots of energy and excitement.”
HOUSTON, Texas—Houston’s bathrooms, showers, and dressing facilities will now be open to all, regardless of gender, gender identity, gender expression, or other predilection of gender behavior. By an 11-6 vote of the Houston City Council, Mayor Annise Parker achieved this as the crowning jewel of her tenure as mayor.
Mayor Parker, Houston’s first openly gay mayor, said passing this ordinance was not the most important thing she has done in office, according to an article in the Fairfield Citizen, but it is the “most personally meaningful thing I will ever do as mayor.”
Houston Council Member, At Large Position 3, Michael Kubosh took exception to this. Kubosh told KPRC TV, “It’s going to criminalize people that have been found in violation in the ordinance and the fine could be between $500 to $5,000.”
By day, New York City Police Sgt Ralph Sarchie arrested criminals, by in his off-time the veteran cop was moonlighting as a cross-wielding exorcist.
Sarchie’s accounts as a real-life demonologist in New York detailed in his 2001 book served as basis for the new horror film Deliver Us From Evil, out in theatres July 2.
The film starring Eric Bana as Sgt Sarchie already has been described as likely the scariest horror flick of the year.
She is already one of the world’s top models.
And Candice Swanepeol’s sex symbol status was solidified further after she topped Maxim’s Hot 100 list of the world’s most beautiful women.
The Victoria’s Secret model showcased exactly how she beat off competition from the likes of Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis as she put her amazing bikini body on display in a sultry snap
Black Beach Week used to get all the glory: Every Memorial Day weekend, 300,000 black people gathered in Miami Beach to get their freak on. And also create a tsunami of violence, robbery, shootings, carjackings, vandalism, mayhem, noise and trash.
But this year, many party-goers complained that Black Beach Week — only reporters call it “Urban Beach Week” — just wasn’t as much fun any more: Too many cops, tactical vehicles, helicopters, lights, towers, cameras, suspicion. Not enough chaos.
Not to worry: The rest of the country picked up the slack. Black mob violence over the holiday weekend was reported in more than a dozen cities around the country. Some fatal
FRIDAY NIGHT at THE MOON DRIVE IN – GAMERA VS GAOS
EPA says don’t worry, utilities aren’t building new coal power plants anyway because new gas plants are cheaper. But if the rule simply ratifies where the market is going, it won’t reduce emissions. What then is the point?
The CCS rule is the first part of a 1-2 punch. The real targets of EPA and its allies are existing fossil fuel power plants, which produce 40% of U.S. CO2 emissions.
