Before I get to last night's fashion tornado, let us pause to reflect on the TV goodness that awaits us tonight after the sun sets over our oil-stained earth.
We have part 1 of the RHNYC reunion airing at 9 EST, followed by the premiere of Bethenny Getting Married? at 10, and then I'm live in the Clubhouse with Bethenny. I was pretty psyched when I saw the cover of today's NY Times Arts section to see a big photo of Bethenny next to a rave review for her show. This writer "gets" her, her show, and the appeal of the Housewives....
Some backstory about BGM?: We started talking to Bethenny about her own show last summer, and when we picked it up we thought it would be a docuseries following her dating life and career. Little did we know things with Jason would heat up to the point of an engagement, and that she would get pregnant. So the storyline of the show was fully dictated by her imminent wedding and birth, and it creates a dramatic timeline over nine weeks. She is funny, hard, and vulnerable all at once, and watching the show you understand exactly why she and Jason are so deeply in love. They are fun to watch. I think you'll love this show!
In other big news, we are making the RHNYC Reunion THREE WHOPPING PARTS and Watch What Happens Live is hopping over to Mondays starting next week. So Part 2 of the reunion will air Monday night at 9 EST before RHNJ, and then I will be live in the Clubhouse with Ramona and Dina. Next Thursday at 9 EST, it's Part 3 followed by a brand new episode of Bethenny and then I am live in the Clubhouse to say goodbye (for now) to Thursdays with the first lady of Bravo, Kathy Griffin. I am beyond the beyond about KG joining me in the clubhouse.
I am also very psyched that we're leaving very little of the reunion on the edit room floor. This was as compelling a show as we've done and (you) the audience is as engaged as ever, so we want to deliver it all.
