HEATHER THOMSON (on No RHONY Reunion, Unaired Carole Radziwill Phone Call, Bethenny Frankel as Producer & Future of RHONY) - I I
BEHIND THE VELVET ROPE
Holla! Heather Thomson Steps Behind The Rope. She’s back! Checking in from her home in The Berkshires, Heather is here to break down her time this past season on The Real Housewives of New York City which ended way too soon. Heather breaks down all that went wrong that fateful weekend in The Hamptons at Ramona Singer’s and shares an update on her “relationship” with all of the current RHONY cast members. Heather also breaks down the apology she read on WWHL, chats about the RHONY cast member who had a strange reaction to her WWHL appearance, explains the real reasons she decided to stop filming and walk away, and divulges the phone call she had in the car ride back to NYC with a past RHONY cast member immediately after! OMG, we know! Speaking of this season just past, Heather helps us break down exactly why the ratings have dramatically dropped so significantly, the fall from grace Leah has had among the viewers, the claims that these are a “bunch of co-workers, not friends”, Jill Zarin’s statement that the ratings decrease is due to the lack of men / husbands, which past cast members should be brought back and just what would Heather do if she were a producer in charge of increasing the ratings for the next season. After all, her and Bethenny Frankel do know it all. We also chat about the fact that, in an unprecedented move, the reunion was cancelled and whether now, after this past season’s experience, she would ever go back. Heather is much more than just an ex-RHONY cast member. In fact she is busy AF with her thriving “In My Heart” Podcast and new company “Beyond Fresh” - always the entrepreneur - a superfood wellness brand which is rapidly changing the way we think about nutrition and healthy living! From Yummy Tummy to Beyond Fresh!! Thanks Mama for stopping by again. Always a pleasure!@iamheathert@behindvelvetrope@davidyontefBonus Episodes Available at - https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetropeBrought to you by CANVA - https://www.canva.com/affiliates/VELVETROPE (Free 45 Day Extended Trial )Brought to you by BETTER HELP - https://www.betterhelp.com/velvetrope (10% Off First Month - Use Code "velvet rope")Merch Available at - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/behind-the-velvet-rope?ref_id=13198 Learn more about your ad choices.

KEVIN O'LEARY (on Shark Tank, Being "Mr. Wonderful", Bethenny Frankel, Biz Advice & JLO)!
BEHIND THE VELVET ROPE
Kevin O’Leary steps Behind The Rope. Shark Tank’s Mr. Wonderful! Let us start at the beginning. Kevin talks about how he initially became involved with Reality TV SuperGuru Mark Burnett and how Shark Tank found its way into our lives all those years ago. Kevin talks about being the King of Mean, Shark Tank’s Simon Cowell, or, in other words, just brutally honest about the potential entrepreneurs’ likelihood of success. Of course we pay homage to Mr. Wonderful’s epic catch phrases about being crushed like cockroaches, taken out behind the barn and shot, your dead to me (a personal fav) and of course, how all roads lead back to Mr. Wonderful! On a more serious note, we chat the biggest deal in Shark Tank History - it was Kevin’s, his best and worst deal based on ROI, the ones that got away and if there are ever any products in the tank that go on to success of massive proportions that he just doesn't understand. Tipsy Elves, Scrub Daddy, Squatty Potty - we are looking at you. Of course we also discuss Mr. Wonderful’s colleagues on Shark Tank - Barbara Corcoran, Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, and Damon John as well as guest judges Alex Rodriguez and last, but certainly not least, our very own Skinny Girl Mogul, Ms. Bethenny Frankel. We break down many of the analytics behind the scenes like how many deals don’t close once filming is over, who makes the most deals, and who does Kevin lose most deals to. While we have one of the most brilliant business minds with us, we discussed what qualities make for a good entrepreneur, what is the biggest misconception amongst entrepreneurs, the 24/7 work ethic required, the biggest mistakes most business owners make and just how important is the person versus the product. We discuss the one thing Mr. Wonderful loves the most. M-O-N-E-Y - what it stands for, why he loves it so much, and why are most people shy about saying, “ I love Money”!!! We sure do! Finally, we break down what being a public figure is like - red carpets, celeb run ins, people running down the street screaming “Mr. Wonderful” and what an amazing byproduct that is all from a little show which has turned into an international global blockbuster of a sensation, Shark Tank!!!@kevinolearytv@behindvelvetrope@davidyontefBONUS EPISODES Available at - https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetropeBrought to you by NUTRAFOL - https://www.nutrafol.com ($15 Off 1st Month’s Subscription + Free Shipping on Every Order - Use Code “VELVET”)Brought to you by APPLE LEISURE GROUP - https://www.applevacations.com/BTVR ($75 Off Your Stay at Live Aqua in Cancun or Punta Cana - Enter Promo Code “SAND75”)Brought to you by NOOM - http://www.noom.com/VELVET (Sign Up for Your Trial Today)Merch Available at - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/behind-the-velvet-rope?ref_id=13198See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

S1, Ep 7: Weighing the Pros & Cons of Bethenny Frankel with Jess Rothschild
Deep Dive with Jamie Stein
Jamie welcomes good friend and fellow podcaster Jess Rothschild, host of Hot Takes & Deep Dives, to explore her undying, unapologetic love for ultimate Housewives icon Bethenny Frankel. Together, they explore the highs and lows of all things Bethenny - why she will likely never reach the visionary heights of entrepreneurs like Martha Stewart or Oprah, why she remains obsessed with fame for fame’s sake, why Jason Hoppy was actually a “perfect” relationship for her on an unconscious level, the delirious ride of The Big Shot with Bethenny, and much, much more. This episode is very much a love letter to Housewives fandom, celebrating the ways in which we find ourselves drawn to certain Bravolebrities, warts and all, and how we can come to love and accept certain personalities completely on their own terms. Be sure to follow Jess at @jessxnyc and subscribe to her podcast Hot Takes & Deep Dives.
The Big Shot With Bethenny's Nicole Rosé Stillings (on Bethenny Frankel & BTS of "Big Shot")
BEHIND THE VELVET ROPE
The Big Shot with Bethenny’s Nicole Rose Stillings steps Behind The Rope. Unarguably, THE breakout star of “Big Shot”, Nicole is here to dish it all now that the season has come to an end! A self proclaimed, as seen on TV with Ms. Frankel, DJ, Influencer, and Podcaster, Nicole can now add, “Reality TV Star” to her moniker. Nicole chats about how her dreams of DJ’ing have come true in a big way having worked with not only the the likes of Diana Ross and Noah Cyrus, but there was also that one time she DJ’d and appeared on Summer House during one of their epic finale parties. Yup, we discuss what filming an episode of Summer House was like and just what did Nicole observe from her DJ booth about some of our fav Bravolebs - Kyle, Carl, Lindsay and the rest of the gang. Nicole chats about leaving her career as a triple threat behind to pursue a position as VP, of Operations, billed as “second in command” to the one and only Bethenny Frankel. Nicole has already turned our heads, and that of the B herself, by wearing a crop top on day one, crying after being berated by Bethenny, and, well many other incidents which we discuss in full. In true Nicole fashion she - does - not - hold back when discussing what Bethenny was really like off camera behind the scenes, how “involved" producers of The Big Shot were in storyline, and her edit as the resident “loud mouth”. She also discusses some of her, now standout moments with the world as we watched back each week. She discusses whether Bethenny is bothered by her because she sees herself in her. Let us not forget Bethenny was once called the resident “loud mouth” by our good friend Martha Stewart. Finally, she chats about the epic involvement of Biggy and Smallz and just what she will take away from this experience with Ms. Frankel in the freshman season of her "Big Shot".@nicolestillings@behindvelvetrope@davidyontefBonus Episodes Available at - https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetropeBrought to you by Better HELP https://www.betterhelp.com/velvetrope (10% Off First Month - Use Code "velvet rope") Merch Available at - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/behind-the-velvet-rope?ref_id=13198See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
