Bethenny Frankel Helps Hurricane Harvey Victims

 

As we reported, RHONY star Bethenny Frankel was doing what she could to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas through the B Strong Foundation in partnership with Dress for Success.

Now, Bethenny has gone to Houston to help the victims personally and do whatever she can to help.

“I realized this is the time to raise your hand and help,” Bethenny told PEOPLE.

“We’ve raised more than $300,000 in supplies and donations,” Bethenny, who arrived in Houston on Saturday, said.

“I just started calling contacts. Just, ‘Hi, who do you know? We need socks, we need underwear,’” says Frankel, who also also raised funds via her #ThisIsACrisis t-shirts. (100 percent of the proceeds go toward buying supplies.) “I found a tampon company [Lola Tampons)] that’s a start-up, and they’re giving away 30,000 personal care products. And one of my partners, Arizona Waters, is donating 60 cases of water. Beam [Global Spirits and Wine], another one of my partners, donated $10,000.”

“The Dress for Success building in Corpus Christi was completely underwater, so the first $20,000 dollars immediately went there,” Bethenny adds.

“Everybody I spoke to had water up to their waist and had nothing now but I kept hearing ‘God is good’ and ‘I’m lucky to be alive,’ ” Bethenny said of her visit to Houston. “I feel helpless and more helpful. I feel fortified by asking for money and bringing it directly to people who have nothing. It’s instant gratification. We saw people who have nothing when they walk in the door abut now they have something. We shared so many hugs and so many tears. They’ve inspired me.”

“Even seeing how grateful and positive they were made me realize what a great place it is to donate money because they are all paying it forward and inspiring other women,” Bethenny continues.  “This is the only time that I’ve ever felt that it was appropriate to say blessed.”

Bethenny adds that anything left over will be sent to Florida following Hurricane Irma.

“I hope this will help these women from feeling helpless,” she says.  “And any surplus goods will be sent to Florida for families affected by Hurricane Irma.”

We are praying for everyone that has been affected by the Hurricanes.

Is Gretchen Rossi Returning to RHOC?

 

An insider exclusively tells us that the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County will begin filming season thirteen next month, and while Lydia and Peggy will not return, a new reports suggests there is a possibility that Gretchen Rossi will.

Another insider claims to RadarOnline that Rossi is in deep negotiations to return next season. The site reports that Gretchen is requesting a salary like Vicki Gunvalson’s, which is $750K, and Bravo is actually considering paying her for the drama.

“Gretchen is willing to return, but producers know she will only sign if they offer the kind of money she can’t refuse,” a source told Radar, adding that she is looking for a salary like Tamra Judge or Vicki Gunvalson.

After Vicki and Tamra’s surprising reconciliation at the reunion, Bravo execs are considering bringing back Gretchen for drama. “Producers for RHOC know that they need someone who is going to bring the drama, and Gretchen will certainly do just that,” a network insider said.

“Gretchen will never, ever make up with Tamra. The two hate each other so much and it does not matter to Gretchen whether or not Vicki let it go because she will not,” the source claims. Yes, they do hate each other, but I don’t know if I believe that Gretchen would never make up with Tamra, sorry.

Exclusive Details: Look at RHOC Star Tamra Judge’s New Home

 

RHOC star Tamra Judge and her husband Eddie are in the process of buying a new home in Convenant Hills Gated Community, and we have a look inside their new place.

Tamra’s new house is beautiful and an insider exclusively tells us that she plans on “remodeling the entire interior” of her new home which “will take weeks.” The couple is not living in their new house yet. They are still “finalizing loose ends of the deal.”

The sale of Tamra’s house is still pending and the purchase price has not been revealed. The gated home’s last asking price was $1.689 million in August of this year. This will be Tamra and Eddie’s new home, as they are selling their Ladera Ranch property.
