Here’s the latest shelter scuttlebutt on the new season of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” which starts Feb. 17 on Bravo: The show will be back in the Hamptons.
Star reports that chef Bethenny Frankel will stay with Jill Zarin at her summer home on the East End. Zarin says her house is in the Sag Harbor–Water Mill area. It’s the same home featured in the first season of the hit show.
Public records show that Ramona Singer and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps also have places on the East End — Singer in Southampton and de Lesseps in Bridgehampton. Alex McCord and husband, Simon van Kempen, tell Newsday that they rented a house in East Hampton over Memorial Day weekend and another in Southampton for the July 4 weekend. Other weekends, they stayed with friends in Water Mill, they say.
And where does new cast member Kelly Killoren Bensimon likes to hang her tennis racket when she’s out East? In East Hampton, where, she tells Newsday, she owns a house she built.
