Despite the lawsuits, controversies and negative media attention from the last year, reality mogul Bethenny Frankel has been named to The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment 2011: Power 100 list. Bethenny landed at spot number 100, but hey it’s better than nothing, right?
“Not too long ago, I didn’t have anything at all,” Bethenny recounts to THR. “It’s been abrupt: fame, marriage, baby, success.” As her reality show wraps filming for its third season, Bethenny has no plans of slowing down
– she has gag orders to issue and fake dramas to reproduce, y’all! Perhaps the skinnygirl should slow it down as she recently claimed she is so busy she forgets to eat!
“I have a couple things on the fire, probably three or four, including a few project possibilities with Bravo. We’ve been great partners,” she reveals, adding that her first novel Skinny Dipping will be in stores in May 2012.
Despite her talk show not getting picked up, Bethenny is not daunted as she has other development deals in process and even hints that she may make her life story into a movie! “I’ve been approached,” she shares, “but you have to make the right choices. I’m not going to force anything.” Oh sweet lemonaide, that is just too much!
Moving on, the Bethenny Ever After star will stop at nothing to indoctrinate the public with Skinnygirl and force upon us a new product pretty much every day. We’ve been shape weared, and cleansed inside out, and boozed up, and skin cared and snackbar-ed, and now dressed.
For those of you who are tired of the Bravo Home Shopping Network (a.k.a. all of their shows), I have some unfortunate news: Skinnygirl now produces “loungewear.” Oh,
yuck yay! Bethenny announced the addition of the newest products on her website. The collection of Skinnygirl garments features yoga pants, a tank and a t-shirt — all emblazoned with her logo, of course! Bethenny advertised that the collection is “perfect to workout in, run errands in, or simply relax in.”
Cafemom reviewed the products and wonders just what kind of woman wants pants with Skinnygirl on the thigh? Their assessment: “Bethenny’s made some awesome products in her day, but this line of clothes misses the mark big time. Because the last thing I want people reading on my clothes is Skinnygirl. I feel like it’s just begging for judgment.”
“Maybe she [Bethenny] wants her clothes to shame us into living the Skinnygirl life,” the reviewer wonders. “But I want my clothes to make me feel good, not guilty, don’t you?” Perhaps the reviewer is biased, but she has a point. If I want clothes that make me feel guilty, I’ll put on my pre-baby leather pants. A photo of the Skinnygirl Loungewear collection is below.
