What happens when a Bravolebrity turned talk show host gets turned down at the door of hotspot TAO? Things get awkward. What happens when said talk show host then tries to strong arm the bouncer and limbo under the velvet rope to get into the nightclub anyway? The situation becomes cringe-worthy. What if TMZ paps catch it all on video? As you can imagine, it just becomes priceless.
Poor Bethenny Frankel was denied entrance at a party recently, and she didn't take too kindly to being shut out of the shindig. According to her peeps, she was on the list for a private party in New York City last week, but her name was inadvertently left off the guest list. What's a girl to do? Well, Bethenny tried to weasel her way in anyway. Did you expect anything less?
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.
Oh Bethenny Frankel, whatever are we going to do with you? After deciding Jason Hoppy wasn't the husband she wanted or needed, the former reality star turned talk show host says she's nowhere near ready to date again, although that conflicts with rumors that she's been seeing Warren Lichtenstein. I won't mention that just last month she let it slip that she's seeing someone. Oops! I guess I just did!
Bethenny admits that she has no desire to be part of a couple again. She blames her attitude towards a relationship on the fact that going through this divorce is much harder than she'd ever anticipated. She also manages to throw shade at her soon-to-be-ex-husband. It's like Groundhog's Day around here, isn't it?
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 Frankel is upping the ante as far as guests on her talk show goes. She's graduated from her recent parade of Bravolebrities to the one woman who we have to thank for putting her on the air–Ellen DeGeneres. "Thank" may not be the word you would use, but as far as I'm concerned, Ellen can do no wrong. And who knows, maybe this is just another lesson in random acts of kindness courtesy of Ellen.
When Ellen appeared via satellite (is that what they still call it?) on bethenny yesterday, Bethenny introduced her by saying, "I am so excited and honored to tell you who my first guest is today. It's a woman who I trust, who I admire, who I love, who I respect. She's the most talented women on the planet in my book and she's the reason that I have a show today. I am so grateful to her, for this opportunity. Please welcome my friend and mentor Ellen DeGeneres."
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.
