Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny Frankel is opening up about her boob job ordeal in a new interview with Life & Style magazine.

In the mag’s latest issue, the Bethenny Ever After star admits she got breast implants but says she had them removed a few years ago. Bethenny states that back in 2005, she was feeling unhappy with her natural 34C. She thought her breasts were way too saggy and approached a plastic surgeon to get a lift.

The plastic surgeon however wouldn’t perform the procedure she wanted. “He told me there would be big lollipop scars if I got a lift,” Bethenny, 40, tells Life & Style. “Being single at the time, I wasn’t comfortable with the idea. He told me he could instead put in a small implant that would give me a lift — not as much as a real lift would but at least a little bit of a lift. So I did it.”

Bethenny says she wasn’t happy with the implants. “I was a D-cup,” Bethenny remembers. “They were still saggy — only now they were bigger! They were saggy and gigantic.”

“I was so uncomfortable. I looked like a stripper,” continues Bethenny. “I don’t think your breasts should be the first thing people notice when you enter a room.”

Bethenny adds that after joining the cast of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York City in 2008, she was finally able to afford having the implants taken out.

“The minute I had the money, I was like, ‘Let’s do it,’” says Bethenny adding that she quickly booked an appointment with a surgeon, had the implants removed and went back to her normal size.

“Now I feel comfortable,” says Bethenny. “I feel proportional — and I don’t have saggy boobs anymore. It’s the best feeling ever.” Bethenny adds that her hubby Jason Hoppy is happy with her natural size. “He likes me in a bathing suit and in lingerie — and when I’m naked,” smiles Bethenny.

Interesting comments by Bethenny though her recent photos stemming from 2009 to 2011 still show what appears to be breast implants but we’ll let you be the judge of that with more photos below. Our guess is she might have gotten smaller implants as the above photo of Bethenny in a white bikini from 2009 looks like more than just a lift.

Following the drama filled “breakdown” episode last week, a new episode of Bethenny Ever After airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

On the 7th episode this season titled “The Mile High Club,” Bethenny anticipates her debut on “Skating With the Stars,” yet she feels like she’s on thin ice. Her schedule is hectic, Thanksgiving is approaching and she’ll be away from baby Bryn for the first time when she visits the Skinny Girl bottling plant. Also tonight, Bethenny will be forced to deal with some comments made about her by her estranged mom. A preview clip is below -

In other Bethenny Frankel news, some good news as her latest book A Place of Yes is currently #5 on the New York Time’s Best-Seller list for Hardcover Advice and Misc. This makes the third time Bethenny has made the list. Bethenny continues to ride high as Bravo recently announced her show has been picked up for a third season and a report came out last week stating she has received her own talk show.

And speaking of a place of yes, Bethenny has received criticism from many fans of her show this season for doing the exact opposite aka coming from a place of no by saying no to Jason’s parents, no to Jason, etc. And following last week’s episode in which she appeared ungrateful after receiving some surprise presents at her birthday party, which led to an odd breakdown, more fans continue to turn against her, bringing us to the question below.

Meanwhile, following the debut of Bravo’s new show Pregnant In Heels in which Rosie Pope, a maternity concierge caters to the affluent, Jill Zarin had a critique of her own. “Watching Preg in Heels. Is she deaf or have speech impediment? I can’t understand her. Does anyone else notice that? Or is it just me?” tweeted a renewed Jill. And when a fan accused her of being mean, she responded, “I was not trying to be mean. She is star of her own show and I can’t understand all her words. Asking if am only one who noticed.”

According to a new report, Bethenny Frankel has her own talk show in the works!

The RumorFix is reporting that Bethenny, star of Bravo’s Bethenny Ever After, has just signed a deal with Telepictures, the same production company behind The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Tyra, and Lopez Tonight.

Bethenny’s show is said to be currently in development; and just two months ago, Bethenny told Popeater why she wanted a talk show.

“I would like a daytime talk show because my conversation with my fans right now is through social networking, and my TV show communicates what I’m doing, but it isn’t really a dialogue or a conversation,” Bethenny told Popeater back in February. “Most of my business wishes come true,” she added.

If this news is true, it might explain why Bravo was so eager to renew Bethenny Ever After for a third season despite the decline in the show’s ratings.

A new episode of Bethenny Ever After airs tonight at 10/9c on Bravo.

On the 6th episode this season titled “Feeing From 40,” it’s a Hoppy birthday for Bethenny—or is it? As her 40th-birthday bash draws near, Bethenny falls victim to blues and blahs, and Jason plans surprises aplenty. On edge, Bethenny distracts herself by practicing for her stint on “Skating With the Stars.” A preview clip is below.

In other news, Bethenny Frankel’s mother is once again speaking out against her following the most recent episode of BEA and the release of Bethenny’s latest book A Place of Yes, in which Bethenny opens up about her childhood issues.

“I didn’t feel like a victim as a child, and I don’t feel like one now,” Bethenny, 40, writes. But “I never felt very safe, and I never felt like I could trust that someone else was in control of the situation.”

In separate interviews, both Bethenny and her mother Bernadette Parisella Birk spoke to the HollywoodLife. “I shouldn’t have been in Vegas at 13,” Bethenny explains. “I shouldn’t have been in nightclubs at 13.”

Bernadette however insists Bethenny isn’t telling the truth about her past. “She was NOT in any nightclubs at 13, unless she was crawling out her bedroom window at night,” Bernadette tells the HollywoodLife. “But yes, we took her to Vegas with us because we were not going to leave her with a babysitter,” adds Bernadette. “We took her all over the world, she wasn’t out of my sight ever.”

Bethenny admits to the site that not all of her childhood was bad. “My childhood was not terrible,” admits Bethenny. “I had a lot of happiness — or at least a lot of fun times. I did a lot of interesting things’ — but not necessarily at an age that would have been appropriate.”

Bethenny reveals that she has no intention of reconciling with her mom for the time being. “My life is kind of the way I want it right now,” says Bethenny going on to add that her intent is not to hurt her mother with the things she wrote in her book.

But Bernadette says she isn’t buying it. “If she didn’t want me to read the parts about me in the book then why would she publish it?” Bernadette wonders. “My comment is the same as it was — I consider her to be demented and beyond help,” Bernadette says. “Reconciliation is not up to her at all. She would never want to repair anything because then all of her lies would come out.” Wowzers. A picture of Bernadette is below.

Bravo reality star Bethenny Frankel is probably used to being questioned about her weight by now, after all she did receive some criticism for dropping her baby weight too quickly a year ago. However it is her most recent appearance at a Bravo event this week that is now causing a bit of a stir.

Less than a day after we posted photos of Bethenny, 40, attending Bravo’s Upfront party, a ton of the post comments seem to be about her startlingly thin appearance. While Bethenny has appeared skinner in recent months, her latest appearance seems to be her thinnest yet. Below are some of the comments posted by our readers, most of whom are her fans -

  • “She does look a bit too skinny, but she is a busy woman.” – Real Moe
  • “Love Bethenny, and hope she reads this because she is looking seriously anorexic, and it is not at all attractive. She doesn’t look fresh and healthy. She’s looking worn and old. Skinny girl needs to strive for healthy girl.” – Michelle
  • “Bethenny is one of my favorites…yet she does like too thin…wonder if she is burning the candle at both ends.” – Jada Murray
  • “Bethenny looks really thin. Almost anorexic. Hope she’s taking care of herself, she’s a mommy now.” – Kari
  • “Bethenny is way, way, way too thin.” – MamaG
  • “I love Bethenny but….she is way too thin!” – Jackie

Those are just a few. Bethenny, who has penned best selling books about weight loss, has always been open about her past weight struggles. In fact, she revealed to UsWeekly back in February that she was once obsessed with dieting.

“I spent my entire life being obsessed with dieting,” she said. “Bingeing and then fasting or starving. Forbidding everything. That’s how I used to be: up and down 5 pounds every single day, to the extremes. My metabolism was totally wrecked.”

As stated in some of the above comments, Bethenny does have a busy career and is currently on a book tour in addition to being a mom. Here’s to hoping all is well with Bethenny. Below are some more photos of Bethenny before and after.

It was a very busy day for Bravo yesterday as the network not only announced new and returning shows, but also hosted a total of 3 different upfront parties in 3 different cities!

And of course the housewives came out to party alongside plenty of other Bravolebrities. Above is a photo of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast at the Los Angeles party. Also at the LA party was the entire cast of the Real Housewives of BH including Kim Richards.

Joining the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast at the Chicago party was none other than Bethenny Frankel, who tweeted that there was a clear division amongst the cast members but more on that below.

At the New York party were the Real Housewives of NJ and the Real Housewives of NYC. Casts of other Bravo shows such as Top Chef, Million Dollar Listing, Million Matchmaker & more were also in attendance. It is a photo overload below!

Meanwhile, earlier in the day, Bravo officially announced the RHOA and the RHOBH will be returning for another season. Not exactly surprising as the first had the highest ratings in housewives history while the later has already began filming. The big surprise however was the early renewal of Bethenny Ever After as while the ratings are still good, it has declined over 20% from its debut season.

Not announced yesterday? The Real Housewives of DC which is reported to have been canceled. The only two housewives franchises missing from the Bravo parties? The RHODC and the RHMIA.

A new episode of Bethenny Ever After airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

On the new episode titled “Ice Castles and Hassles,” Bethenny is on edge about her approaching 40th birthday. Meanwhile, she receives an invitation to appear on “Skating With the Stars.” A preview clip is below.

And in an interview with Extra, Bethenny Frankel reveals why she had a breakdown over her 40th birthday. “It’s a low grade breakdown. A mild, mild breakdown,” Bethenny confessed. “It wasn’t that I was turning 40, I just didn’t want to have a big party to celebrate. It’s not like I am one of those people that are like ‘yeah it’s your birthday.’ It’s not exactly me, so I reluctantly had a party and then broke down in the bathroom.”

In other Bethenny news, her former BFF and Real Housewives of NYC costar Jill Zarin continues to speak out against her. In a new interview with UsWeekly, Jill states the upcoming fourth season (premiering April 7) is her “favorite,” adding that Bethenny never really fit in with the NYC group.

“Living through it was the most enjoyable season,” said Jill. “I don’t think Bethenny ever really fit into the group.” Jill added, “She’s found herself on her own show — her own island. She self-admittedly doesn’t like people [besides her husband Jason Hoppy and daughter Bryn, 10 months.].” Yikes.

Meanwhile, Bethenny continues to make the press rounds to promote her latest book, “A Place of Yes.” While talking to the HollywoodLife, Bethenny revealed she always knew she would get her own reality show and used the NYC Housewives as an opportunity. “It was definitely something I knew was going to happen. I could see it,” said Bethenny adding that she tried to separate herself from the pack. “I separated in a sense that Season One — everybody was being frivolous. I was just trying to build a career and I was already working on all the projects.”

“Bravo is very much a network that is known for and relishes big drama, diamonds, glam, money and luxury,” Bethenny said. “I was not that. I had no money, I lived in 700 square-foot apartment. I had no idea what was going on in my life emotionally or career-wise. I separated in the sense that I wasn’t going to pretend I was somebody I wasn’t. I had to separate from the pack and be truthful.”

And while Bethenny makes it clear she has no regrets in doing Housewives, she does state that she doesn’t “miss a minute of it.” She then appeared to take a swipe at Bravo Housewives stating that in Bethenny Ever After, “no one is doing anything violent or outlandish for television.” She added, “I just love the natural way about this show because it’s true.”

UPDATE – The HollyWood Reporter reported in April that Bethenny Frankel sold her Skinnygirl cocktail line to Fortune Brands’ Beam Global for $120 million! You can read more about that by clicking here.

According to a new report, Bethenny Frankel is not happy with the way she is being portrayed on her Bravo reality show Bethenny Ever After.

See, just four episodes into the season, some fans of the show as well as critics feel Bethenny is the villain of her own show, citing the treatment of her in-laws to being too hard on hubby Jason Hoppy.

And now the RumorFix is reporting that Bethenny is well aware of the backlash and feels she is being portrayed as “mean” on the show. She is reportedly now demanding producers re-edit episodes of her show to portray her in a better light.

Sources reveal that Bethenny is upset that some blogs are calling her out on her alleged bad behavior. The Jewish Journal referred to her as being “mean, selfish, and narcissistic.”

It seems Bethenny is not only the star of her show but also the executive producer though she hadn’t really exercised any control until now. “Bethenny is making producers re-cut all the shows to make her nicer — even the shows that have already aired. You will notice the rerun is different,” says the source.

In other Bethenny news, she continues to enjoy a reign of success as she just sold her “Skinnygirl” spirits brand to Fortune Brand’s Beam Global Spirits & Wine unit for an undisclosed amount

“Partnering with Fortune Brands and Beam Global was the right move at this time,” said Bethenny in a statement to CNN. “I created a new category that needs their muscle and distribution to take this concept worldwide in the immediate future.”

Bethenny appeared on GMA this morning, during which she stated the brand simply got too big for her to handle and that she will still be involved in the development process of the Skinnygirl brand.

Bethenny’s new book, “A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out of Life” also hits the shelves today.

According to Bethenny, “a place of yes” doesn’t always mean being positive or agreeing with others. “It means that you go for what you know you can have in your gut,” she told GMA. “I’m not a yes-man by any stretch of the imagination. Right now…I say ‘no’ to a lot more than I used to because that’s saying yes to myself.”
