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.
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.
That Heather Dubrow from Real Housewives of Orange County is one busy, busy, busy little bee! Don't believe me? Fear not, she's going to tell you herself! The reality star, mom, wife (I know it's in the show title, but we all know that actual "wives" on these franchises are few and far between!), and former Malibu Country actress (sorry, I couldn't resist!) has a lot on her plate these days.
Even though her season has finished filming, Heather is trying to juggle car pools, hosting gigs, and acting roles…not to mention she and husband Terry are building a new home. It's a rough life for those Dubrows!
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.
Bethenny vented, "Bloggers who have no idea what they are talking about are writing that I have a new boyfriend named Botox, who has really botched me up. Folks I am here every day, 57th and 11th where the pink awning is, as long as they'll let me do a show I'm here, if you want to come here, you can ask."
