Our good friend Tom Murro from Celebrity Magnet joined the some of the ladies from The Real Housewives Of New York City and Andy Cohen last night at the 6th annual Made In NY awards at Gracie Mansion. He shared with us some tales from the bash.
Murro told us that the Housewives were very sweet, which is always great to hear. The cast even posed with Mayor Michael Blomberg, and Murro got some shots with Matt Damon and John Leguizamo.

The topic of RHONJ‘s Kim Granatell came up. Jill Zarin and Murro chatted about Kim G., Zarin inquiring if the Jersey girl was married. It turns out Kim G. is happily divorced and has an amicable relationship with her ex-husband. When Murro mentioned that Kim G. was at a jewelry show in Las Vegas, Jill asked if she flew private. Nay, Kim G. buys herself a first-class ticket and saves the extra cash for baubles. Jill Zarin flies private, though. That Bahbby. He’s a nice gentleman AND he charters jets.
One person who didn’t feel much like talking about Jersey‘s fifth wheel? Cohen. The Bravo honcho doesn’t see the appeal of Kim G., which is probably why she’s not an official cast member. Word got back to Kim G. that Cohen asked if there was really a market for her, so she lashed out (several times) at the dear boy for his remark via Twitter:
“U meant what u said Andy! I am not “dumb” Theresa here. Hard to get things past me. Way way too smart!”
“Hey Tom, get burnt on any flames tonight? Flying home with my jewels, having sweet dreams” and not about u know who.”
“if the “flaming” guilty shoe fits, then WEAR it!!!”
“Can everyone understand initials??? Keep guessing!!”
“Glad to be in Vegas dripping in “Real Diamonds” and not with Tom Murro @ Made iin NY Event with that DB A.C. JO.
“Andy, stop being a flaming A…hole!!! There r birdies all around. Is there really a market for ….????”
To which Andy Cohen replied (only once): “@Kimgranatell I know you of all ppl have a better sense of humor than that kim g!”
