Courtney Stodden appeared on Bethenny Frankel's talk show today – and she confessed, "I don't read or write." On the heels of this shocking admission, Bethenny proceeded to grill Jessica Rabbit Courtney about a future in porn.
Bethenny asked Courtney about her next step, adding, "A lot of people go from controversial to a porn career." Courtney shot down any talk about porn. "I really want to focus on me," she shared. "I've learned that I need to be 19. I need to do what regular girls do."
Bethenny quipped, "You don't look like a regular girl," to which Courtney said, "Maybe don't judge a book by its cover." Touché.
Andy Cohen better watch out because Bethenny's talk show is starting to feel like a daytime version of Watch What Happens Live! The Real Housewives have been a staple on Bethenny's special guest list lately and shows no sign of slowing down.
Kandi and Kenya have been promoting the show together lately, so Bethenny asked if they were paired together for a reason. Kandi shared, "we can be friendly together and Kenya can't be friendly with everyone on our show, so they put her with me."
Bethenny tells Kenya that she's polarizing (and that she can relate), "You're polarizing: people love you or they hate you, not unlike myself". Kenya explains, "I am extremely emotional, I'm reactionary and I'm just real. so I have natural reactions. If someone sets me off I can be a firecracker but only when I'm lit."
Another day, another diss aimed at Bethenny Frankel's talk show. Maybe it's time for Reality Tea to create a new category just for bethenny bashing!
Bethenny's talk show debuted in September and has yet to find an audience. It's falling way behind competitors like Queen Latifah, Wendy Williams, and Steve Harvey. Color me not shocked! I don't watch any of their shows, but I have a hunch their guests are a lot more interesting and likable than the likes of Farrah Abraham and Kate Gosselin.
Today's diss suggested that audience members have been complaining aboutBethenny's standoffish personality. "She's cold and only walks in when she has to tape and walks out," claimed an inside source. "We're told some guests have even emailed complaints to the producers."
As we just reported, Farrah Abrahamappeared on Bethenny Frankel's talk show today, and now the former Teen Mom star is boohoo-ing about how she was treated. Despite my brain's screams – "Too much ego and desperation on one stage!" – I watched the segment.
Those ventures includeFarrah's porn movie and upcoming line of sex toys, of course, and Bethenny was less than impressed. "If you want to be a business person, I don't think that should be your business," she said. "From what I understand, you're known as being the Teen Mom; the word mom is in your title with people. I think that we might not want to buy sex toys from the Teen Mom."
When asked why she felt the need to clean up her toddler's eyebrows, Farrah said, "After that whole situation in the media, I actually got a lot of fan mail from girls who were younger, who did have unibrows, and they only wished that their moms would have helped them."
A second audience member jumped in, saying, "My head is going to pop off, I swear!" HAHAHA! Join the club! Welcome to the perplexing – but sometimes extremely amusing – reality that is Farrah Abraham, my friend.
Bethenny's shrill scream was heard around the world, I'm sure. "Oh my god," she added. "Please kill me now. I just want to die. I really do."
On the tape, Bethenny talked baby talk to her dog, made fun of her driver, and talked up her career. "I've cooked for Mariska Hargitay, the Hiltons, Brooke Hogan, Alicia Silverstone, models," she shared. "Basically I'm a natural foods chef, and in Hollywood, health sells."
Bethenny declared the clip painful to watch, asking Andy, "That's why I made it on the show?" Andy said, despite his initial reservations about Bethenny's past experience with reality TV on Martha Stewart: The Apprentice, he thought she was really funny. And now we're stuck with her the rest is history.
Kate Gosselin appeared on Bethenny Frankel's talk show today. Bethenny asked Kate point blank how she spent her Jon & Kate Plus 8 earnings. Kate turned the conversation around – poor little divorced me – and said a few things about co-parenting that Bethenny really needs to apply to her own life.
First – the money! Where did it all go? Bethenny pointed out that Kate made a ton of money during Jon & Kate Plus 8's wildly successful run. Typical Kate hemmed and hawed a bit but ultimately agreed and said it was a blessing.
Bethenny continued, "You said publicly you kind of need to support your kids. You need money to support your kids. So I think people want to know where the money went, where the money is."
Kate answered, "The majority of what we made, I personally took and put into a college fund for the kids because they will go to college. So I use coupons and we don't wear top brands. Those things, to me, really aren't overly important, but college, school, and the house where they live is important.
Bethenny quizzed Kathy about her motivation behind joining the show.
Bethenny: How are you finding a balance with the fact that your entire family is on television and it turned out so differently. You probably thought it was a fun thing when you started and now you are in this web.
Kathy: Well that's what is hard because you don't know what's going to come up and you don't know what everybody else is thinking but at the end of the day my husband and I decided that we are going to do this. Our foundation has always been solid and what happens in our home and behind our doors when we close the door that is going to remain solid. Everything else, is secondary.
