A Straight Shooter
Bethenny wants you to know the truth about the press and about her bidet.
I hope my blog isn't too blah. My furry baby Cookie is at the hospital for bleeding. This isn't good for her because she has always suffered from a low platelet count, which means that bleeding is very bad for doggies. I dread putting her back on the strong chemo type drugs. Anyway, I'm praying.
Now on a lighter note. . .about the show.
The press: what can I say about them? In this business they are a necessary evil. Would I be even remotely close to where I am without them? Absolutely not. Did I used to dream of anyone caring enough to take a picture of me and now dread the very same thing at times? Yes! The thing is that I, perhaps like you, was very naïve. I actually thought that if it was printed, then it had to be true. The sad fact is that it isn't necessarily true at all, and you need to be educated consumers and know what sources to trust.
Even within the category of gossip magazines, very select magazines check their sources legally. The rest just quote any source they can find and say "a source" or "a friend." If they don't name a name, it probably is just hearsay. Anyway, I don't care what the press thinks about me, but I do care what you think.
If my trust comes into question by you, then I take it seriously. I went through quite an intense press storm. I know more will come, and none of it really matters. I've never said anything about how much money I have and I don't think that is important, nor will it ever be. I've worked hard to be able to not have anxiety over meals or taxis or rent, and frankly that is good enough for me.
Who would have thought about the luxury of shopping for your very own brand new toilet? I've lived in so many apartments, and I was just glad if it flushed. Who even knows if it will make a difference. I still think I'll just hope it flushes. As far as a bidet, that's a bathroom accessory of a different sort. Let's just say being oh so fresh and so clean is exciting. For the record, I went for the "up the wazoo" one that shoots up. I'm a straight shooter. Why shouldn't I expect that from my bidet?
I love Nick. His writing is so much fun, and I just love helping him to be a little bit more confident. He has unleashed his Skinnygirl, and he is very happy.
Date nights are so important. They set you back on track, they take you away from mommyhood and business and the day to day. Jason and I have a lot of fun, and we honestly need to shake things off and let loose. That's what date night is all about!
Regarding the talk show with Ellen, this is a surreal dream. She is an inspiration. She has really been so positive and supportive and there couldn't be a human being that I would rather go into business with. She is a game changer. She has been on the bottom and made it to the top. She has done courageous things that have paved the way for other people, and in business, she is paving the way for me. We have a great time together and she has accepted and supported me as me. This is a gift that I cherish. Tune in this summer on FOX: the queen of too much information is coming to daytime!
