Brad Boles isn't pulling any punches on what went on with those Housewives last night. From the class of the Royal wedding fashion, to the crass of some of those RHONYC, we've got our favorite Queen, Brad Boles, aka Jill Zarin's gay husband dishing the dirt. –S.H.Does anybody really need to see a pathetic middle-aged women pull her broken laments out of a Hermes box?!Cindy Barshop didn't win any favors by asking Sonja Morgan downtown for lunch at Ciprinani's only to let vanity get in the way! What was Sonja's comment about her driver boy taking her downtown where she won't go even for her best friend, "Nose Bleed”! She made it clear she won't go to Quogue, in the Hamptons, as well. Sonja is all about Southampton.What's wrong with this picture?Kelly Killoren Bensimon avoids conflict like the plague but ends up between Cindy and Sonja at Countess Luanne's little get together when it becomes clear that if it wasn't for the filming, these women would never be in the same room!

The Real Housewives of New York City- Season 4, Episode 1 Review

Brad Boles shares his opinion on what happened last night with those attention-seeking eal Housewives of New York. Well, it seems the girls haven't changed much since that last time we saw them!Ramona Singer was so rude and downright mean when interviewing people for an assistant's position. Of course, I would not expect anything less from her. The only thing that's changed with Ramona is that she finally got someone to do her makeup, but that hair…. come on, Ramona this is not an episode of Ally McBeal.Next up, Jill and Kelly hanging out on Jill's bed that I designed! It seems Bethany issues still hit a deep nerve in Jill. Now, I do know from an insider's point that the sword cut both ways. They both landed on their feet, so move on ladies and stop using it for ratings! Sonja Morgan is so not interesting to me. Do we really want to see Sonja panting like a Bit*h in heat over her date? In my opinion, it appears that he doesn't want you, he wants the limelight.The omnipresent Luanne at Orsay and her sexy man Jacques truly have a connection that you can feel two tables away! Luanne, why I ask would you choose for your big reconnect with the audience in Season 4 to have dinner with a classless act in a dress that can't speak French in a French restaurant really?!

Fashion Week Survival Tips and Gossip from Last Big Hamptons Weekend from Brad Boles

A farewell to a big summer! A clambake, a game of chicken and a full disco party and season four of Bravo’s hit show “The Real Housewives of New York City”There’s not a chance you could get better then Labor Day in the Hamptons. The weekend started with a glorious sunset clambake at the divine ocean-front home of my very own Lauren Arpel and fifteen perfect summer friends. I was in a panic as to how to make a bonfire on the beach though. But, have no fear, I called my metrosexual friend Rob Seigel and sure enough you straight guys are good for something. He showed up with wood and his Boy Scout skills to light up the sky. We enjoyed everything from lobster to fresh corn and s’mores. originalAll the pretty ladies… The next night I was invited to a very chic dinner in Amaganset. I can’t mention the name of one of guests, a supermodel, but you all know her. After she bounced back from a huge scandal, she’s had more fashion campaigns then in her previous incarnation. The evening ended up rather bare: all naked in the pool playing chicken. Needless to say her body is still flawless. I then went to a fabulous birthday party for Emma Snowden Jones, my new love, which may prove to be a problem in Season 4 of “The Real Housewives of New York City”…just kidding Jill! Jill Zarin will always be my love and one of Bravo’s number one housewives. Happy birthday Emma! Here’s to a great Autumn filled with champagne and a new, perfectly dressed Red Carpet Goddess.On Sunday I attended a great Hamptons disco party in an all white modern house in Bridgehampton where I’m doing the interiors. It turned out to be a great way to test the flow of furniture placement with over a hundred guests, a DJ, two stations, as well as a full sushi bar! That’s the way to roll. And how was your weekend?Fashion Week Survival Tips…As you know, we are enjoying Fashion Week here in New York. Sharon Haver and I will be covering all the backstage beauty and celebrity gossip as well as the spring makeup and fashion trends that her feet can handle! You’ll also get fab fashion week reports from contributors Alix Kivlin, and Andrea Perini & Naveed Hussain of VagabondNYC…. you’re not gonna want miss all of this and we won’t let you!
