Bookgate? Ghostwriter details on ‘Real Housewives of New York’ spoiler

The fans of “The Real Housewives of New York” won’t be seeing any books flying on Tuesday night’s episode of the reality show, but a few dirty little secrets will be out of the book shelf. It appears that some viewers didn’t know these ladies couldn’t write a letter, let alone a book, and hired a ghostwriter. Why is that important? Well, it causes a major issue as offering up another writer for a book is obviously not what everyone does. According to Hidden Remote on Tuesday, this divides causes major friction on the show.

"Take a xanax calm down only a few more hours till #RHONY episode 2!! Tonight 9pm bravotv #bookgate,” tweeted Kristen Taekman from her official Twitter account.

The term “#bookgate” is going to be trending on social media on Tuesday night as people find out that not all the ladies have actually written their own books. Instead it seems that others have stepped in to correct English, write chapters of manuscripts and more. This explosive news has the women being judged and who is called out might really surprise everyone.

While “The Real Housewives of New York” has seen a modest interest to the show (compared to the other shows in the franchise) there isn’t any doubt the details of who is actually writing books and who hired it out and slapped their name on it will bring a few readers. However, we have to ask is “#bookgate” the best hashtag for the drama? Shouldn’t it be something like “#authorgate”?

“The Real Housewives of New York” episode “Give Up the Ghostwriter” airs at 9 p.m. ET.
