Bethenny Frankel on Skating with the Stars
Fair to say that Bethenny Frankel's seen her share of drama, so no surprise that she can see it coming from a mile away. Last night, hours before judge Johnny Weir took a jab at her on Skating with the Stars, the Bethenny Getting Married? leading lady tweeted: "I LOVE my outfit... judges hate me so I may as well look good;)"

When B hit the ice, she defied gravity with a move called a "death spiral," all while dancing, smiling, and trying to look completely natural. But despite her best efforts and killer outfit, the judges weren't pleased. Dick Button and Laurie Ann Gibson gave their share of mixed reviews, but Johnny Weir came out swinging. He told Bethenny: "To me, it's very clear you don't care what we think. And I don't really care to watch you perform anymore, because you aren't listening to our critiques."

Ouch. Weir's statement might have been inspired by B's persistent smile, even as judges are doling out some serious critical damage. Post-performance, Bethenny took to Twitter to tell her fans her thought process through all of this. "You guys are the best," she tweeted. "I LOVED our performance and had the best time.I gave it my ALL.I hope I made u guys proud"

And today, Bethenny is back on the rink, recovering from what must have been a stressful night. She told fans, "Up and at em again to skate for next week.TIRED.just had a dark choc cupcake w choc frosting for breakfast.NEEDED it.that's when u indulge!"

Johnny Wier was a complete hag on Monday night. It was so unprofessional for him to say those thiings and then to allow his feelings to control his judging was even worse. Hope he isn't with Rachel Zoe and has gone to his "friend" Brad's new business. Won't be watching Rachel if Johnny is on it!

Not sure why my first comment wasn't posted by Bravo here, but I'm trying yet again. Johnny is clearly jealous of Bethanny and would no doubt love to be her. That reminds me of someone else - are you there, JZ? She posted encouragement to Johnny on her twitter account - then deleted it. But she obviously is behind some of his comments. Neither of them could ever come close to accomplishing what Bethanny has - if they lived another hundred years, they couldn't gather all the love that Bethanny has from the public. How sad to live your life trying to best someone else.

Bethenney, you are so wonderful! Smart, beautiful, and driven. Talk about pearls before swine, that show is too long, the "hosts" are bush league, and the judges -- OMG -- crabby Laurie Ann; nasty, inexplicably mean JW (except to the Olympic skater he's got an obvious crush on); and Dick Button, a great skater and commentator of the past, whose mental faculties are going bye-bye before our eyes! Where is he hook, the hook, when you need it! Bethenny and Rebecca are doing great, and I'll bet they'll be very happy when this thing is over next week!!

Bethenny should have asked Johnny Weir why "Stars on Ice" didn't hire him if he's such a great "important" figure skater with all this "knowledge"? OUCH indeed!

Bethenny Frankel showed more class and professionalism than Johnny Wierdo ever will, including on the ice. His obvious, personal disdain for Bethenny from the very first episode, made it impossible to be an impartial judge. Don't quit your day job Johnny Wierdo, if you even have one these days. I don't see this SWTS lasting longer than a nanosecond.

Bethenny you absolutely did your fans proud!

Bethenny Frankel showed more class and professionalism that Johnny Weirdo will ever show, including on the ice. His obvious, personal disdain for Bethenny over-rode any chance at him being an impartial judge. Don't quit your day job, if you do have one these days Johnny, I don't see SWTS lasting longer than a nanosecond.
