The Reviews Are In! <i>Bethenny Getting Married?</i> Rocks

So says the New York Times.


The New York Times has given Bethenny Getting Married? a rave review today, albeit in the muted tone appropriate to the Gray Lady. Here's what TV criticGina Bellafantehad to say:

When “The Real Housewives of New York City” is running in continual loop at the Smithsonian, they will see that Ms. Frankel was a mouth, a friend, an enemy, a baker, a chef, an almost-brand — an ambulatory energy drink of a woman. They will know that her feud with the deranged nudnik Kelly Bensimon put her on the side of right and good. They will convene at the Society for the Study of Reality Television With Fewer Than 10 Million Viewers and say, “Thank you, Bravo, for giving Bethenny a spinoff.”

Here's some other reviews:

We all knew Bethenny Frankel did get married and had a baby girl, but that doesn't make the Real Housewives of New York City's most intentionally funny vixen's road to the altar any less entertaining.


I've always thought Bethenny could sustain her own show without the other nutjob NYC Housewives.... A-.

--Entertainment Weekly

As her large, shining eyes drink in an a reality-arranged world of meetings (she hires an assistant) and tête-a-têtes with [fiance Jason] Hoppy, she's quick, articulate, and instinctively ironic.
