Friend of The Real Housewives of New York, Barbara Kavovit, is renting out her Hamptons home for the summer. Barbara is a real estate developer and she is renting out her home for $130,000 for the entire summer. Barbara recently responded to the reports that she owes $2.4 million on the property to Deutsche Bank and is facing foreclosure. Barbara told Page Six, “Part of being an entrepreneur means that business and life can sometimes take unexpected turns. In 2015, I filed for personal bankruptcy protection which has been discharged, and am currently in settlement discussions with Deutsche Bank, with every expectation this will be concluded soon.”
For a cool $130,000 you can stay on the property for the rest of July, all of August, and through Labor Day.
Barbara is good friends with Luann de Lesseps, an OG of the RHONY. Barbara was a newbie this season, and appeared as a friend of the wives. Many have been wondering if she will return next season as a friend, as a Real Housewife, or not return at all.
There was a hot mic moment where she said that her friend Luann can’t sing. Luann recently addressed it and said, “I was really stunned and, you know, once again she got caught on the mic, and believe me, she threw me a whole new clambake for that. She’s still trying to make up. Lobsters everywhere! She’s made some comments on social media also that she didn’t mean it because Barbara’s actually been to eight of my shows and she loves my show.”
Barbara claimed that her comment was taken out of context. Luann said, “She says it got taken out of context. I don’t know how that could have been taken out of context. I don’t claim to be Adele. But I am an entertainer, I love to sing for my friends, I love to host, and I love to tell jokes. That’s what my cabaret show is. It’s all about entertaining and hosting my guests, and it’s a lot of fun and sexy and entertaining.”
It seems that Luann and Barbara are working on their friendship. Many are speculating that Barbara is coming back. OG of the RHONY, Ramona Singer, is not onboard for that to happen. She recently stated that she didn’t think Barbara really gelled with the rest of the cast. Perhaps this will be a storyline next season?
