The Daily Dish The Real Housewives of New York City

Instagram King the Fat Jewish: Why I Love the Housewives

Exclusive: the social media sensation also reveals his hilarious tagline.

By Jordan Upmalis

We knew he was a internet phenomenon, but who knew he was such a Housewives fanatic? The Daily Dish caught up with The Fat Jewish (a.k.a. Josh Ostrovsky) recently and learned all about his guilty pleasure.

It should be no surprise that the native New Yorker's favorite franchise is RHONY—though the reason may surprise you. "I'm a RHONY lifer, since the carpet king of New York Bobby Zarin was all up in the mix," he reveals.

Another reason? Former Housewife Kelly Bensimon is a close friend…kind of. "Funny enough, Kelly Bensimon used to think that I was someone else; which is insane because I look like an overgrown freak baby with a vertical ponytail," he says. "[She] would come up to me at parties all the time and be like, 'I haven't seen you since Miami! How is Jeff? I miss us so much!' And I would obviously play along and be, 'Jeff is the worst!' And she'd be like, 'Right?!' This went on for like, two years. She's a treasure."

Though it's unlikely he'll have his shot at becoming an actual Housewife, he's prepared if the call ever comes—with his tagline ready. "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels. Except for pizza. And nachos. And burrata. And everything. And gravy. Have you every drank gravy? It's f***ing delicious."

While he's got a Housewives connection, he's also buddying up with other Bravolebs. Just last month he was spotted with Shahs of Sunset star MJ, who described him as "Sweet, kind and gracious."
