Whitney Rose (On RHOSLC's Season One, The Explosive Reunion, & Season Two!) - Part II

Ep. 222

Whitney Rose steps back Behind The Rope (if you haven't heard Part I which aired yesterday, feel free to check it out). Hot off an epic 3 part reunion, Whitney is here to break down this freshman season of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. After a brief discussion of Whitney’s life prior to the show - yea we wanted to know more about the woman behind what ya all have seen on TV over the past few months - we get right into it. Whitney is more than happy to discuss, and does not hold back in discussing, her close friendships, mere acquaintances and not so close friendships with cast mates Mary Cosby, Jen Shah, Meredith Marks, Lisa Barlow and Heather Gay. We will let you figure out which is which. We delve deep into all the seasons dramas discussing which were necessary and valid and which Whitney would never like to speak of again. Speaking of drama, we break down the reunion, part by part, analyzing whether any closure was achieved or rather fresh wounds were opened. Now that Season Two has been green lit, Whitney discusses what she predicts will transpire amongst her cast mates, what she would like to see change, and what she plans to do differently. Spoiler Alert, we here Behind The Rope have already heard tidbits from Season Two filming which we, of course, do our best to get Whitney to comment on. Hey, we are good like that. Like we said, spoiler alert. You don’t wanna miss this one!

The Real Housewives of Miami's Ana Quincoces (Catching Up)!

With all this talk about a Real Housewives of Miami Reboot, today we share our chat from a few months ago with RHOM's Ana Quincoces. Ana fills us in on all that she has been up to since we last saw her on our TV screens on the classic Bravo Show, The Real Housewives of Miami.Born and raised in Miami, of Cuban descent, Ana is here to tell it all.Ana and David bond over both being recovering lawyers and having moved on to other great careers.In Ana’s case, she has been running a legit business, Skinny Latina. Started in 2013, it is a marinate and sauces business, to help making cooking easier and to help make anything taste good.With a name like Skinny Latina, we have to ask, has she heard from Bethenny Frankel or her Skinny Girl team?The answer is not what you would expect.We also discuss her appearance on the "Food Network Star" and how her fellow contestants felt she got special treatment for being a former “Housewife”.Speaking of Housewives, Ana discusses how she originally got cast, why she said yes to the opportunity and how the producers really felt about her.Ana tells us all about her cast mates Lea Black, Adriana de Moura, Alexia Echevarria, Marysol Patton, Lisa Hochstein, Karent Sierra and last, but certainly not least, Joanna Krupa and where her relationship with reach stands today.She explains what being on Watch What Happens Live was like and how her life changed as a result of being on the show.One career high was co-hosting The View - we discuss Barbara Walters, was the environment really as "toxic" as everyone says and what happened when two of her guests were RHONJ's very own Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita.Head on over to https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope to listen to the full episode out today!!@anaqooks@behindvelvetrope@davidyontef

Bethenny Ever After's "Coordinator of Chaos" - Julie Plake McMinn (Catching Up!)

Ep. 257
With all of this nostalgia floating around the BravoVerse these days, we couldn't think of a better Bravolebrity to have join us than "Fan Favorite" Julie Plake McMinn.You know Julie Plake, The “Coordinator of Chaos" from the Iconic Bravo shows “Bethenny Getting Married” and “Bethenny Ever After.”Checking in from her home in Pittsburgh, PA, with husband and 3 kids in tow, Julie takes us back to the beginning.She moved to New York City basically overnight on a whim when she got a job offer to work at a series of famed New York City magazines.It was at one of those magazines, Hamptons Magazine, that she met Bethenny Frankel, who was hired to cook a brunch at Julie's boss' house. Julie was sent to be Bethenny’s Sous-chef for the day. In typical Bethenny fashion, Julie was thrown right into the job never having been asked by Bethenny of her qualifications or experience in the kitchen.They bonded.After that brunch, Julie said to Bethenny, (1) you are going to be famous and (2) when you are, call me and I will come work for you.News flash. Bethenny did become famous. Very famous. Another news flash. Julie did end up working for her, as seen on Bethenny’s two blockbuster Bravo shows.Julie takes us on her journey of working for Bethenny during the start, rise and sale of the Skinny Girl Empire. She bestows us with the wisdom she learned from Master B herself, what a typical work day looked like, what it was like to film a hit Bravo TV show, the decision to ultimately leave the B, and what that conversation looked like. Julie was also there for the beginning of Bethenny’s relationship with Jason Hoppy, which we dissect.We chat with Julie about recent developments in Bethenny’s life -a hit Podcast, brand new apprentice style show “Big Shot With Bethenny” and engagement - Paul Bernon we are looking at you, as well as in her own life - new business “The Learning Match” which helps connects parents to the educators they need and ongoing "JPM Branding and Consulting” where she shares the wisdom she learned from the best business man, woman, anything we know, Bethenny Frankel, with the rest of the world!!! Sign us up! Thank you Julie for stopping by and entertaining our many never ending questions on all things B!!
