In all honesty, that Tipsy Girl vs. Skinnygirl fight was painful to witness during the last Real Housewives of New York season. It was just a way bigger deal than I ever expected it to be and I still find it a little weird that Bethenny Frankel somehow felt threatened by Sonja Morgan’s business attempt. There is room for all of the Real Housewives to market their own liquor brands, so I don’t get how Bethenny could be upset with Sonja for trying to do the same. Sonja is trying to open a Tipsy Girl restaurant, which obviously did not work out, and now Bethenny is getting blamed?
That makes no sense to me. Yes, Bethenny is a super successful liquor mogul, but there is no way that she has that much power. Come on. As much as I love and root for Sonja, we all know that restaurant was never ever going to come to fruition. It just seems like Bethenny is a scapegoat to me.

According to Page Six, Sonja has been trying to open up a restaurant called Tipsy Girl (of course) and has stumbled upon a major road block since she failed to acquire a liquor license. Apparently, this has been going on for a while since the State Liquor Authority denied the liquor license back in February as well.
Apparently the board was put off by the request because “that [the] ‘Tipsy Girl’ brand was a plotline on the reality TV show the ‘Real House Wives of New York’ [sic], on which [Morgan] appears as a cast member and that the location was in fact intended to be a destination location that would be promoted through a buried plotline on the reality television show.” Not everyone wants to be associated with reality TV. That’s pretty understandable so I don’t get why Bethenny is the one getting blamed for this.
It seems like a far stretch to me. I really doubt that this was even on Bethenny’s radar, to be honest.
TELL US- DO YOU THINK BETHENNY HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH SONJA’S RESTAURANT FAILING TO GET A LIQUOR LICENSE?
