In the interview, Bethenny explains she enjoys doing a reality show, but having dueling reality shows Skating With The Stars and Bethenny Ever After was a bit too much: “I foolishly took on another show, Skating with the Stars, at the same time (as Bethenny Ever After). To take on two shows, a new baby, a new marriage, the negotiation to sell my company took a lot out of me.”
Bethenny who is dedicated to famewhoring her fans generally doesn’t mind the cameras in her face, as she discloses why she never requests any private moments away from the glaring lens of Andy Cohen: “I don’t do that because it would compromise the integrity of the show. Sadly, most reality shows aren’t real at all. I feel a responsibility to be truthful.” We’ve noticed, Miss ‘I can’t go to the bathroom without a boom mic’!
This is also why she feels it’s important to make her therapy sessions part of her show: “Therapy itself is difficult to do to begin with, but not difficult to have filmed because you forget the camera is there. If I can help other women understand a little better about themselves by seeing me go through therapy, that’s the most enlightening thing about the show. I run to the therapist. It’s valuable, I certainly need it, I’m proud of it.”
In other Bethenny news –it’s all about one-year-old daughter, Bryn and like mother, like daughter it seems Bryn has a lot to say! In a recent interview with SheKnows, Bethenny gives us the skinny on Bryn’s new loquaciousness: “Yeah, she’s talking. She says mama, balloon, wow, and her newest word ‘ma-na-na-na,’ which means banana.”
And speaking of food, Bethenny who describes her daughter as a “mama’s girl” also disclosed that the two bond over food – which Bryn loves and Bethenny tolerates a couple bites at a time: “She eats everything and since that’s one of my passions, I find it fun.” Apparently Bryn has quite the diverse culinary repertoire: “Her favorite food is Mediterranean. She eats grape leaves, artichoke pesto, mango cilantro salsa, baba ganoush. Just this week she had Indian food and Thai food.” Here’s hoping Bryn won’t be on the Skinnygirl diet anytime soon! Although, I am counting the days until Bethenny releases some sort of baby food cookbook.
Also, next for Bethenny and hubby Jason Hoppy aka Team Frankel is, of course, Skinnygirl Baby No. 2! “We’re preparing, I want another girl,” says Bethenny. Does that mean season three of Bethenny Ever After will feature the same thing as season one of Bethenny Getting Married a new pregnancy and preparation for the upcoming Hoppy?
