This story has been circulating all weekend, but some new details have come to light. But, let’s take it from the top for anyone who needs to catch up. Queer Eye star Bobby Berk is calling out a Real Housewives of New York cast member for bad behavior.
He accuses the woman of stealing from him before he became a reality star himself. He doesn’t name the New York Housewife who did him wrong, but he did share a lot of details that help narrow down the possibilities.
Us Weekly reported that Bobby shared this story during a recent appearance on The Jenny McCarthy Show. Before getting into the specifics, he remarked, “Celebrities can be a pain in the ass sometimes. A lot of times there can be some that expect everything for free.”
Then he shared, “I had a New York Housewife come into my store years ago in New York, and [she] was like, ‘Oh, I’m buying this new place.’ Turns out, of course, she wasn’t buying it. She didn’t even own the last one she had on the show that she said she owned.” So far, this applies to more than one NY Housewife.
Bobby continued, “She’s like, ‘I want you to come in and design it all. I’m gonna put you on the show.’ And I wasn’t on TV yet. I still kind of liked the Housewives, so I was like, ‘Oh, OK, but just so you know, I’m not doing it for free. I don’t need to do it for free. I don’t necessarily know if the Housewives is really the exposure I want anyways, so I’ll do it for you at cost.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, OK, that works.’” Of course, that’s not actually how it went down.
This part helps narrow down the field a bit. Bobby revealed, “Then her husband calls and her husband’s like, ‘No, you just really need to do this for free,’ and tried to bully me into doing it for free.” Whose husbands have we seen on the show? Start thinking, Reality Tea community.

Bobby decided not to do the project, but the story wasn’t over. He shared, “She came into my store the next week when I wasn’t there and told my staff that I had said she could take anything out of the store that she wanted to design her house for the shoot and here was her credit card and ‘If I don’t bring anything back, if I like something, you can just charge the credit card.’” SKETCHY.
His employees didn’t know that Bobby decided not to work with her, so they just gave her what she wanted. Then, when they ran the credit card, it got declined.

Bobby recalled she “came in here and literally stole from my store.” And in response, this Housewife told him, “You know what? Then let’s go to court. This’ll be good TV. It’s easier for us just to have our lawyer deal with it than it would be to actually pay you.”

“Oh @AvivaDrescher, UR such a con-artist. Guess I’m not the only one you F’ed over. So pathetic!,” he tweeted on September 2014. He also tweeted in April 2014, “@CaroleRadziwill I agree with you! Reid is a total crook! #RHONY.”
So, most likely it’s Aviva. But, Ramona Singer also had a husband on this show. So did Jill Zarin. Maybe it’s Alex McCord. How’s that for a throwback reference? We all know much Simon Van Kempen liked to get involved, especially with fashion and home decor decisions. By the time Bethenny Frankel had a husband, her credit card would never get declined.
