She's brash and loud and skinny and quite the alcohol mogul.  Whether you're her biggest fan or she's the reality star you love to hate, everyone seems to have an opinion on Bethenny Frankel.

The former Real Housewives of New York star has made a name for herself with spin-offs, cocktails, and a daytime talk show.  She has a cult like following and an equally large number of people who can't stand to hear her voice.  However, you can't deny that her sharp wit and acidic tongue can be downright hilarious. 


Bethenny recently spoke with Huffington Post to answer some quick-fire questions.  While she dishes on healthy snacks, her holiday pet peeves, and what she's dying to ask Kim Kardashian.  Enjoy an excerpt below!

What's your No. 1 tip for smart snacking this time of year?

Find a 200 calorie great-investment snack. Something that has protein and fiber. That’s why almonds are a great snack. I have a great granola with dried fruit and almonds. So when you get to wherever you’re going, you start Thanksgiving dinner or go to a cocktail party, you’ve already had something. You’re spoiling your appetite, which is a good thing. You’re not so ravenous that you can’t make a smart decision.

What’s your biggest pet peeve when it comes to unnecessarily decadent holiday fare?

A lot of things bother me — the amount of butter people put in things when you could reduce it in half. You can make a low-fat egg nog. You could use multigrain bread instead of regular bread. There are so many great things you could do with sweet potatoes; you don’t have to have marshmallows and maple syrup on it. You could have a little bit of real maple syrup and a little bit of butter. People just pour it on, and they don’t really need to.

What's your guiltiest pleasure?

I think you should indulge during the holidays. No one ever got fat by having a couple bites of pumpkin pie or by having some stuffing. It’s just when people gorge and binge and feel guilty about it, and then the next day wake up thinking that they’re going to go on a diet. Diets don’t work. What works is allowing yourself in moderation.

If you were on death row, what would your last meal be?

Probably eggplant parmesan and pizza.

How did you get on death row?

I killed another housewife.

If you could ask Kim Kardashian any question, what would it be?

Do African-American men have larger penises than white men?

What shows are always on your DVR?

“Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Not many. Just random “Housewife” installments for a rainy day. I’ll DVR stuff for my kids once in a while.

What's your go-to excuse?

“Hold on, my daughter’s throwing up–let me call you right back.”

And there you have it.  I'm sure Kim appreciates that she's got some expertise in the area that Bethenny wants to learn more about!  Which housewife do you think Bethenny would off to end up on death row?  Jill Zarin, perhaps?
