Bethenny Braves Weir's Withering Critique
Things get chilly 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!"
