Back in her early days on Real Housewives of New York she was the single girl trying to be something she wasn't: rich! Of course, Bethenny Frankel wasn't alone. That's pretty much the Real Housewives franchise's M.O. – fake it til you make it!
In the wake of Teresa Giudice's massive fraud indictment, (for whom Bethenny has said she doesn't feel sorry), she is now complaining that Bravo intentionally hires personalities that are all flash and no cash and slams the franchise as being a bunch of broke wannabes. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you…
Bethenny says the ladies of Real Houswives are "all show and no go" and are more intent of flaunting faux wealth than actually amassing that money!
She is quick to point out that while the ladies aren't exactly broke, per se, they aren't representing their real lifestyles or incomes. "It's not what you think it is," Bethenny warns.
Bethenny Frankel made the most of her time in Miami this week. Yesterday Bethenny hit up the beach in her teeny red bikini and did some filming for her upcoming talk show premiere.
Bethenny was at the beach and giving away free trips! She Tweeted, "Calling all my girls! I have a free trip to ny & tix to my show!!!! Come find me at the beach!"
Earlier in the day she was signing copies of her new book "Skinnygirl Solutions". After her whirlwind trip to Miami, Bethenny headed back to NYC to be a guest on Good Morning America and share some tips from her new book. She also proved (sort of) that she does eat carbs by posting a pic of herself grabbing a bagel on the way to the studio.
Bethenny was in Coral Gables, Florida yesterday to attend a book signing for newly released "Skinnygirl Solutions: Your Straight-Up Guide To Home, Health, Family, Career, Style And Sex'. Fans stopped by Books And Books to pick up a copy of the book (which just released yesterday) and to meet the business mogul in person. Have you read any of Bethenny's book?
Bethenny has just a few weeks left until the big premiere of her talk show 'bethenny'. Are you planning to tune in and see how she does?
I've been wondering why Bethenny Frankel had crawled out of her Skinnygirl hole lately and started doing a lot of press. Then I remembered she has a new self-help book and a talk show to promote! Of course…
Since everyone wants to know about Bethenny's never-ending divorce to Jason Hoppy, she's doing what she does best and spilling her side of the story. I guess Jason was unsuccessful in securing that gag order…
"I'm going through a brutal, brutal time," Bethenny shares with ABC about her divorce and custody dispute. "I'm definitely bruised."
Oh Bethenny Frankel, if only… if only you hadn't staged that big ol' reality TV wedding and spinoff then maybe your very public divorce to Jason Hoppy wouldn't be so brutal!
With the couple battling in court over custody of their daughter Bryn and custody of their recently renovated apartment, Bethenny describes the divorce process as a daily struggle. "It's been hard," she admits to Life & Style. “It’s been difficult to stay sane.”
One may argue that Bethenny has never been sane – part of her charm? – but the divorce process is putting her closer to the brink than ever! To escape she's been vacationing (and possibly canoodling) with a billionaire and putting all her focus on her new talk show, Bethenny.
Page Six is reporting that there is some major discord surrounding the talk show which is helmed by the reality star turned mogul…and Bethenny's attitude is to blame. Sources close to the show tell the site that Bethenny is "very particular and difficult," and it's already turning off some of her employees.
I could be wrong, but I'm going to venture a guess that any celebrity couple who finds themselves facing divorce is just jinxing the situation if they claim to be "amicable." Case in point? Reality star Bethenny Frankel and Bethenny Ever After prop (and Bethenny's soon-to-be-ex-husband) Jason Hoppy.
Since the pair announced their uncontested and friendly split, the duo has been anything but. Friends of the pair are playing quite the game of he said/she said in the tabloids, and there doesn't seem to be an end in sight. Now, new court documents are apparently alleging even uglier undertones…but can we believe it?
