Hello Frankel fans. Tonight Bethenny did her best to fling aside the haters and focus on the positive -- like how positively babyish her voice sounds when she's trying to talk to Bryn. Let's recap shall we?
Bethenny Frankel: Gossip Writer
Bethenny caught a lot of flack from the bloggers this week. The interwebs were disputing her payday from Forbes, while a certain tugboat captain is saying that the gang wasn't lost at sea at all. I think it goes without saying that I can't fathom Dr. Amador ever faking a major nautical disaster, but there, I said it. In the midst of discussing how she should defend herself with Jason and Julie (and again later in the episode when she chats with Julie and Jackie), Bethenny throws a couple of fictitious celeb scenarios out that made me chortle greatly: One, Bethenny is having Hugh Grant's baby (particularly because the Countess herself just revealed she has a mondo crush and has maybe once smooched the man) and two, Julie is having Brad Pitt's baby (because like that guy needs any more babies). Anyway, moving on.
After an especially touching Dr. Amador session, Bethenny takes to the Today show, and shuts down all the rumors. You know it's a serious interview because Matt Lauer has on his glasses, and it seems to button up all the rumors nicely.
Dwayne and Bethenny's Shopping Montage
Bethenny discusses the situation with Dwayne, and he resolves to be a vault for her gangster business abilities. He also contradicts that those two are just driving back and forth to Barney's all day. Dwayne knows that people can throw her under the bus "quick, fast, and hurry," and the two ponder the process of loving to hate someone. This only brought me back to the signature Sonyae track "Love It or Hate It," which I had to say aloud to you guys in hopes of finally getting it out of my head. Sorry if now you're just stuck with it.
I liked it better when you were one of the haters on The Real Housewives of New York City. It seemed more real. The "hate" word is thrown around a lot on your show now, as you say you hate your mom. Learn to forgive her as she definitely has a mental illness, and with that comes the limits of the inability to form intimate relationships. She was unable to be the mom you wanted and needed. Now you can be that for your daughter. But please take it down a few notches. We get it. You can learn a lot from Jason.
I don't know you but what I see is a good mom, good wife a good person, your such a hard worker everything you have was not just given to you, you worked very hard, I'm so glad to see a woman make it keep it up don't stop your going to the top bethenny, may GOD bless you and your family. Don't listen to the haters they are just jealous and trying to keep you down.
Andy Cohen needs to start a new game in honor of Bethenny Ever After. Whilst watching the show, one needs to sip a cocktail whenever "B" says the word "I".... talk about a drunk fest!
I thought it was so cute at Ellen how people just picked Bryn up like family....so cute. I will say Bethenny needs a little meat on her bones to hold little Bryn on her hip, she kept sliding down. I agree with Bethenny's shrink and wonder why she has to continue to keep creating businesses and work. Stay home and spend time with your daughter and husband. Bryn will be grown up in a flash. She has enough money.
Is it just me or did anyone else catch what Bethenny said to her shrink regarding how she felt when her mother was getting pummelled by her father? She stated that she did nothing and didn't even feel sad for her mother!! What kind of person is that? She was a little girl at the time that didn't want to come to her mother's rescue. All of you producers, etc. need to check yourself in elevating this type of person to fame. Ellen -- I love you and always have -- but SAVE YOURSELF and don't sponsor a talk show with Bethenney. It will fail. She definitely has a chip missing!
Hello Bet, After reading the delusional, media-consumed posters above, I must respond and tell you, that having that same mother somewhere in my periphery, I leave her there with no guilt or "hate". You are a strong woman, you have let us watch you LIVE your life out loud via THIS particular channel, but you kept your head above water the entire time, standing in your truth and refusing people that just plain LIE about you, your business, marriage, whatever, you survived. Leave the "REALITY" world, as we both know it is NOT reality, and enjoy the rest of your blessed and deserved life. You are a beacon to women everywhere, whether they realize it through their own insecurities or not, you are someone that can make women stand up once again and TRULY feel powerful.
Thank you BRAVO for posting this.....or is it too honest for you?!?!
Bethenny its great that we all give you great advice, well some do. We live through you and your family and friends. I've always been told I worry to much just like you,it's hard to change that, so why do it keep on being who you are and everything will be alright. Pace yourself we will always be your followers through thick and thin.
Hey martihere4theparti, Bethenny said she hated her mother after reading lies she had been paid to say in a rag mag. I have watched every episode and all the HW shows and I don't find Bethenny to be hateful at all, just truthful and the truth hurts sometimes. Give her some slack, I have a mother just like that, no matter what I do, it's not good enough. Unless, I am in her life and she is making me miserable, she is not happy. Screw her, and screw Beth's mom too. Life is too short.
