Hell hath no fury like a housewife scorned! A celebrity “Twight” (Twitter fight) broke out last week after a few words were exchanged during the 6th Annual Made in NY Awards event at Gracie Mansion in New York City. Each year this awards show honors individuals and organizations who have made significant contributions to New York City’s entertainment industry, and this night was definitely “entertaining” to say the least.
CelebrityMagnet Tom Murro made his rounds at Made in NY where he ran into the executive of Bravo programming and TV personality Andy Cohen. The two posed for a picture and started to chat about Murro’s best friend and partner-in-crime Kim Granatell, also known as Kim G on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, who couldn’t attend the event since she was at a jewelry show in Las Vegas.
“He was acting like my friend Kim G didn’t exist,” said Murro. “So I started talking about her blog on my site and all the parties we go to, and he says, ‘Kim G who? Is there really a market for Kim G?’” CelebrityMagnet defended his friend explaining she does in fact have a strong fan following. One thing we have learned from real housewives is that there will always be real drama. “I told Kim about my conversation with Andy,” said Murro. “I think I might have started something.”
A fight did actually ensue, or at least harsh words were exchanged, through Twitter at least. Kim G sent out these Tweets after her conversation with Murro: “Andy, stop being a flaming A…hole!!!” “There r birdies all around. Is there really a market for ….????” “Glad to be in Vegas dripping in “Real Diamonds” and not with Tom Murro @ Made iin NY Event with that DB A.C. JO,” “Can everyone understand initials??? Keep guessing!!” “Hey Tom get burnt by any flames tonight? Flying home with my jewels, having sweet dreams and not about u know who. Goodnight!” “if the “flaming” guilty shoe fits, then WEAR it!!!” Andy Cohen responded, “@Kimgranatell I know you of all ppl have a better sense of humor than that kim g!” Can you say #BravoBrawl?
Although this social media fight occurred, everyone else at the actual event enjoyed themselves. Murro had a great time with Mayor Bloomberg, Matt Damon, and John Leguizamo, even though the press was not too happy with him that he pulled Bloomberg into a photo with him. They don’t call him the CelebrityMagnet for nothing!
Speaking of a night of housewives, Murro spent time with The Real Housewives of New York. Jill Zarin seemed to want to chat it up about Kim G as well; seems Kim G was a hot topic of the night. Zarin asked if Kim G took a private plane, or as she says PP, to Vegas. “I said no, she flies first class and would rather spend the 40k on jewelry,” said Murro.
Besides the intense Twitter battle that went down between two Bravo buddies, the night was an overall success. As for Cohen and Kim G, guess we will have to “Watch What Happens Live.”
