Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy are both coming to Bravo's Millionaire Matchmaker ... if the show's mostly ineffectual host, Patti Stanger, has her way.

Bethenny Frankel in Bed

Stanger, the Millionaire Matchmaker herself, is a believer in second chances at love. One would think, since actual matches on her show are rare.

What she's an even bigger believer in is ratings, and as a result, she's looking to sign up the divorced duo for her upcoming celebrity-only season!

According to a source close to both stars, Frankel's beau has reason to worry:

“Patti is a big fan of Bethenny’s and even though Bethenny currently has a boyfriend, Patti thinks she could tremendously benefit from coming on the show."

“Patti would find the most eligible bachelors, and carefully screen each one.”

We recently learned that Sonja Morgan made over $400,000 for the most recent season of The Real Housewives of New York City. That may sound like a lot of money, but based on the video below, it's not hard to see why Morgan is broke.

Her booze budget must be through the roof!

That's Sonja outside of a club in Manhattan, and we think it's safe to say she's had a few.

The clip really has to be seen to be believed, as Sonja exhibits classic "white girl wasted" behavior including declaring one dude is her boyfriend seconds before making out with another guy.

But we guess that's okay, because as Sonja tells the camera repeatedly, she loves "everybody!" It would be even funnier if Sonja wasn't bankrupt 50-year-old with a kid at home, but hey - everybody's got a cut loose some time, right?

Having already fired Aviva Drescher, The Real Housewives of New York City has demoted Ramona Singer to recurring status for the upcoming seventh season.

Ramona is Full-On Nuts

Singer, 57, has been a main cast member since the show's 2008 debut.

Her demotion follows a similar situation handed to former core cast member LuAnn de Lesseps, who became a recurring "friend" during the sixth season.

In Ramona's case, it's even more surprising as she's regarded has one of the chief reasons anyone would watch The Real Housewives of New York City.

Or so you might think ... but the network doesn't. "Bravo is casting the show around Heather Thomson and Kristen Taekman and Carole Radziwill," an insider said.

"[When] Ramona carried the show, that is why ratings plummeted, they think."

Aviva Drescher has been fired from The Real Housewives of New York City after two seasons on the Bravo series, according to multiple reports.

The New York Post mentioned Aviva's departure in an article also stating that Helena Christensen is joining the cast for its upcoming season.

Drescher, 45, an author, amputee and married mother of four, will be best remembered for her leg-throwing incident on the sixth season finale:

The shocking Aviva Drescher leg throwing incident occurred after co-stars accused her of lying and faking her illnesses to beg out of several cast trips.

"The only thing fake about me," Drescher snapped, yanking off her prosthetic leg, "is this!" She slammed the limb on the table, then flung it across a restaurant.

Rumors that Bravo executives wanted Aviva Drescher fired had been flying well before this incident, so that wasn't necessarily the root cause. 

If anything, it brought quite a bit of buzz to the beleaguered show.

It was a rough season for The Real Housewives of New York City.

The once-popular Bravo reality series has suffered through steadily declining ratings, and there's been a variety of conflicting rumors with regard to what producers plan to do about it.

First we heard that Andy Cohen and company were prepared to fire everyone except for Ramona Singer. Then just last week, word got out that the entire Housewives of New York cast would be returning after all.

Now it seems that (as is usually the case) the truth is somewhere in between the two extremes. Producers plan to fire at least one of the ladies (probably Aviva Drescher), and have their sights set on outspoken model Helena Christensen to replace her.

Just weeks away from her marriage imploding, The Real Housewives of New York City star Ramona Singer is coming to Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker.

Not only that, she's requested that she be matched with much younger men!

You Da Ramona

“After carefully considering an offer personally from Patti Stanger, Ramona agreed to appear on Millionaire Matchmaker,” an insider tells Radar.

“She hasn’t been set up on a blind date in 25 years, and is very nervous, but excited. Viewers are going to see a different side of Ramona now."

Having been humiliated by husband Mario cheating on her, even after she caught him once and she tried to make their marriage work, it is ON now.

Think she's doing this to make Mario and plaything Kasey Dexter jealous?

You bet your ass she is. "Ramona is doing it to make Mario jealous," the insider says, "and instructed Patti to get young hot guys for her to choose from!”

The Real Housewives of New York City cast may not be in for a good housecleaning after all, according to a new report that indicates ALL of the stars will return.

Real Housewives of New York City Season Season 6 Cast

“The cast members aren’t fired,” a source close to the Bravo production tells Radar. “There’s zero fact to it. Every year they say people will be fired."

"They’ll put that out there in the news because they always need new girls.”

Of course, Radar's one of the most notorious celebrity gossip outlets when it comes to the Real Housewives "hot stove" season, guessing who's in and who's out.

The bottom line? All cast members are on one-year deals, so it's easy to speculate on impending moves. They are, by definition, on the chopping block every year.

At the same time, most of them love the money and fame and come back.

Recent reports that Ramona Singer could be the only one left standing after Season 6 were premature, in other words. As of now, no one has been fired.

“Cast mates do not get fired without anyone knowing,” added the source.

The Real Housewives of New York City star Ramona Singer is opening up about her divorce and her husband Mario’s cheating in a new blog post for Bravo.

Ramona and Mario Singer

After filing for divorce late last year, only to reconcile, Ramona left Mario Singer for good after he stepped out with Kasey Dexter again this summer.

“Having your husband betray you is the worst feeling in the world, and I wish it on no one,” the reality star writes, addressing Mario's cheating with Kasey.

Singer can't help but note the irony of shutting down Andy Cohen's attempts to ask about her marriage during her show's recent reunion taping.

“How ironic that last week during the [RHONYC] Reunion Part 2, I was protecting my husband and not being polite to Andy [Cohen]," Ramona writes.

"Just the week before, I kicked Mario out. It came out in the press a day later.”

After Mario’s first reported affair and subsequent reconciliation with his wife, their relationship never went back to what it used to be, Singer laments.

The Real Housewives of New York City cast member Ramona Singer believes that her estranged husband's mistress is stalking her and obsessed with her.

She was so concerned, the reality star even called 911 over this.

Ramona is Full-On Nuts

Ramona, who was spurned and humiliated by Mario Singer when he went public with Kasey Dexter last weekend, called 911 on the latter Wednesday afternoon.

Claiming the woman had followed her to a restaurant, Ramona asked for police assistance, and the NYPD responded to the scene. The resolution?

Nothing. Cops found that the woman in question was eating lunch with a man and had no connection to either Ramona or Mario Singer, or Kasey Dexter.

Might be time for a tropical vacation somewhere, Ramona.

Ramona Singer is feeling humiliated by husband Mario Singer stepping out with Kasey Dexter right after she announced their divorce on Twitter, sources say.

Not only that, the reality star just rented a Hamptons cottage for the entire month of August, only to watch him canoodling with his mistress all over the place.

He's ruining her vacation, in other words. The horror.

  • Ramona Singer on Bravo
  • Mario Singer and Kasey Dexter

Out in the open, Mario Singer was over his 32-year-old plaything at the Women’s Health Party Under the Stars in Bridgehampton on Saturday night.

"Mario was grabbing her butt, and the two were making out in front of everyone. It was very awkward," says a source familiar with Ramona Singer's divorce.

“Ramona is completely humiliated, embarrassed [and] taking this really badly. She really tried to make it [the marriage] work. She doesn't know what to do with her life."

“Mario is staying with a good friend, who also has a much younger girlfriend. Ramona thought she would be able to relax and get away from all of the drama."

Mario has now made that impossible, however.
