We give Bethenny Frankel a lot of crap for a multitude of things, but we give credit where credit is due = the woman is fearless and she doesn’t take herself too seriously.
Bethenny’snew talk show has been making a few headlines over it’s saucy topics – mostly sex – and she’s making no excuses for it. The former Housewife says she’s like Oprah, only dirtier. She tells In Touch magazine, “I’m the R-rated Oprah!”
Bethennysays she is just like every other woman out there and wants to keep the conversation real. “I’m talking about what my friends are talking about every day. We aren’t talking about politics — we’re talking about dating, marriage and what men think.”
She shares why she’s been focusing on sex as the topic of many of the first episodes of her show, which is finishing it’s third week on the air. “Someone says they don’t have enough of it, and someone else says it’s boring. But the bottom line is, I’m just like many of the married women in America who watch my show. Sometimes we just want to spice it up a little bit.”
Skinnygirl and Bethenny Ever After star Bethenny Frankel once again finds herself involved in a lawsuit over her multi (multi, multi!) million dollar baby. Although she sold her Skinnygirl Cocktail line to Jim Beam for a few bucks, Starcasm.com reports that she was recently deposed in a class action suit regarding the brand. The suit alleges that the drinks are made with rotgut tequila instead of the 100% blue agave tequila that the label boasts. Okay, sure.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Above is Kourtney Kardashian (who must be due any day now!), who shared: “Just showed @kenbakernow the new Dash LA store for @enews!”
If there’s one thing we know for certain, it’s that reality TV and BFF-hood don’t mix. Repeat: Do not come on a reality show with your BFFL and expect it to be buddy-buddy 4 eva. It seems the second the cameras start rolling and the editing kicks in – along with the drinks and the contracts stipulating drama, fights, and backstabbing, the individual interviews and the out-famewhoring and jealousy – these long-time friendships melt faster than an ice cube in a toaster.
Friendship divorces have come to dominate reality TV and sadly it was often those friendships that got us hooked on the show in the first place. When a friendship divorce happens, often it leaves the fans as divided as the main characters.
So here’s to the used-to-be friends and their friendship divorces. So sorry it didn’t work out – but sometimes one person’s loss is another’s gain! Big things can come from public relationship break-ups.
Reality Tea has compiled a list of some of our most memorable friendship divorces.
“I wish Jill [Zarin] the best. I wish Kelly the best,” Bethennytold the audience. “Honestly, it was an experience that I’ll never forget and the year with the first five of us is definitely very nostalgic.” A video of Bethenny discussing her time on RHONY is below.
Well, because Kelly is still apparently very concerned about Bethenny and because she really doesn’t have anything else going on wants to keep her name in the press, she is responding to Bethenny’s comment with some niceties of her own.
Speaking to the NY Daily News, Bethenny says that she is responsible for Aviva getting her new job! “I actually cast one of them,” she claims. “I cast Aviva. I’m the reason she’s on the show.”
Bethenny says she knows Aviva through a mutual friend. “She is from the upper East Side of Manhattan and was married to somebody that I know,” Bethenny shares. Please tell me Bethenny didn’t also sleep with Aviva’s ex-husband, Harry! “She just seemed like she’d be a good character. She seemed like she’d be part of some drama also on the show.”
