The rack has been lifted. So who knew that my breasts and figure would be the root of so much discussion. Let me clear a few things up: my breasts have been lifted. Back in high school, I was a d and even then they were saggy. I lost weight over time and eventually they were a saggier C. A few years ago I had them lifted and they are what they are now.
As for exercise, I wishfully do yoga 2 to 3 times a week. I used to be a spinaholic a stepaholic and a gymaholic and my body probably remembers (muscle menory) so what I do now is enough.
Truthfully, diet is 90 percent of the struggle which is why I wrote my book Naturally Thin. I'm older, thinner and more fit and I have unlocked the secret.
Sorry to disappoint, but that's the only surgery I've had. The nose, cheekbones and all of the other things commented upon are real for better or for worse.
When I read the article in The Post, I couldn't believe that they gave our minutia and nonsense such a bold headline. People must be very bored. Jill has never met a battle she doesn't like. Jill will always fine a way to justify a dramatic argument and gossip. To know her is to know she loves gossip and to love her.
Bethenny, You are my favorite cast member! I love your intelligence, insight, independence...everything! Keep it up pretty lady!
Bethenny, you are by far the most down to earth and relatable housewife. Not to mention Strong, confident and beautiful. You are such an inspiration and I love that you've built a career doing something you love. It's only a matter of time before you have the family you deserve.
I love how NYC tells it like it is and gets it out in the open. They say their piece, and move on. Unlike OC who do the slow burn, afraid to be real.
You are my favorite housewives! I am a little disappointed that your blog is so short, since you are now the professional "housewife blogger". But this is only the beginning. Although I hope you are not going to go off onto some kind of weight issue this year- from your "Skinny girl picture" comment. I love that you tried to teach Jill some of your "I said it and i own it" attitude! Keep it up!
Bethenny: you are for sure my favorite on the show...your impersonations of everyone = priceless! I have one question for you: how did you get that teeny tiny flat stomach? I know you probably have the one up on healthy delicious cooking because you are a chef, but what is your exercise routine? Will you be publishing a "skinny girl" cook/ drink book? Your margarita? delish!
I don't find your sarcasm as amusing as some people do. I think your words are often flip and unkind. What kind of pet name do you have for yourself. How about "the housewife who never was." I think that describes the lifestyle of you and your boyfriend perfectly. Truth hurts doesn't it?
Your blog is rather thin in content. What's the matter? How could you have little to say about the Alex and Simon show? They really are talentless, obsequious, judgmental boars that suck the interest level out of the show.
Bethenny, YOU are fabulous! I can always count on you to cut through the bull and say what we're all thinking!.... You're the new Carrie Bradshaw! :)
Bethenny, I wish I was you. You have the best of both worlds. Stay true to your friends and yourself. Call them as you see them. You make me laugh. Thanks
You are my favorite on the show. I love your spit fire personality. Are you going to come out with cookbooks anytime soon and a book with your "skinny girl" cocktail recipes?
You are a classic beauty! When I see you, "Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy-Onassis" always enter my mind. However,please do not lose any more weight. I was shocked to see you on the NYC premiere show. You are still fabulous, but there is such a thing as being too thin. The pool scene with you and Jill clearly showed that you have lost a significant amount of weight. I wish you much happiness and I can't wait for your book to be distributed.
Betthany, Love your insights and mimicry. When someone isn't "real" with you, you turn around and are "real" with them. Not a small gift. In the first season, you shared about having some childhood issues. But, having issues and being up front about them is alot better than hiding behind some ridiculous facade. I think you have tried to help Alex and Simon alot. Also, Ramona...or is it Rameena? I don't agree with some comments made inferring that you and Jill are "mean girls". You are both big enough to admit that there is good and bad in everybody. Keep it up.
I love your humor. You're never fake which is really cool. I really admire Kelly from what I've seen in the first episode but if she really did say that she's socially higher than you and you two don't speak then all bets are off, I have your back! Love you short of creepy!
Beth, Girlfriend, I just love your "no u dien't". I love your style and spice for free flowing life and its treasure with all it hilarious mishaps. You are stunning and don't you forget it, babe. I would watch this show if you were the only one on here. You need your own. You and Jill would be a nice twist. Your the best! Hope you find a man that does you an inch of justice. Your on the right track with yourself. I so want to be you when I get my mess together. You inspire me... Accept this complement. God bless you dear!
I don't usually comment...but have to admit I was one the anti housewives saying snide comments about the entire cast... with that said Bethany..you rule! Funny Funny Funny and smart. Love your cut to chase wit that is funny yet speaks volumes of truth... You remind me of my friends...Also...your not fooling anybody ...there is a HUGE heart under that smok'n bod.... Your wit and fairness of hw you teat everyone put "the countess" to shame or should I say "sham"...ha ha
Bethenny, Oh my goodness!!! You make me laugh so friggin hard!! You are my Fav, and Jill, of course!! I am so excited to watch this season! I love how you keep it real with everyone and just tell it like it is! My husband Danny and I are both in the Army, and he is on his 3rd tour in Iraq right now, and this show (as lame as this sounds!) definitely helps pass the time!! LOL Oh and I am loving the nicknames!!
Can't wait to see the dish! Your show is one of my all time favorites. I mention it in my book which is called Social Climbers. You can read about it at www.socialclimbers.net
I will be tuning in tonight! Love love love, great escapism. Have a great day.
Bethany, You have to be my favorite too. Your humor is clever, spot-on, and classically your own! You are the glue that holds it together. You look fabulous, you keep it real, and it would be great to see and the new girl hang together. I am also looking forward to reading your book! I hope Alex does justice to the 'skinny girl margarita' logo!
Bethany, you're my favorite too! So witty and a lot of common sense! Loves it!!!! Sonja Port Orange,FL Come visit us!!!!
Bethenny- Hold your head up high. You are a kind and frank person. I am like you in that my father left @ 4. You are accomplished and dignified. I am a children's author and have done so much like you since my father left. I appreciate your willingness to be yourself...I so relate to the nonsense that reoccurs in your life around your father - as mine had NOTHING to do with my success in Sam's, QVC , Borders and Barnes & Noble! You have all the strength in your own victories... I see them and everyone else does. Rejoice in that... you are my favorite! Hope to meet you soon...Mazel. Michelle Bain
You are my favorite on this show. it is very ironic considering we have the same name as well. I also pretty much raised myself so I prefer to be alone as opposed to being in a relationship. I am a vegetarian cook and firmly believe that your diet is definitely the most important when staying fit. I worked really hard to lose a lot of weight, and now I keep it down by maintaining my diet. I just hope to be as successful and driven as you.
Bethenny- Just watched the show for the first time with my mom tonight. You are incredibly witty which I am sure you already aware of it. The show was highly entertaining at least for the parts in which you were in. You seem to be the one person from what I gather from my mom and the one episode I have seen with any common sense or reason. Jill seems to get it for the most part however her overwhelming need to gossip doesn't set her too high above most of the other women. However my question is how can you possibly bare to be even relatively entertained by hanging out with any of the other women. And when you do how do they like you when you are blatantly making fun of them aka discountess... Do they not then realize how incredibly ridiculous they are? I suppose I have to give you more props being able to stand them because I for one could not deal with someone constantly asking to referred to as the Countess. Newsflash Countess of WHAT? clearly the pizza man is not going to know.
Hi Bethenny, you're definitely my favorite NY housewife and very hilarious! But hon, gain a little weight back. I always worry when women get that skinny :o(
Bethanny, You are the epitome of what makes this show. You are so hilarious, honest, sincere, and so lovable. I love love this show of DHW because of you. Love your personality. You're awesome. Lets go get drinks and hang out. Holy inappropriateness! Lol
She is hilarious and her comments on Ramonas article was priceless. She is the wittiest of the ladies for sure, how are you still single??
I just love Bethenny, she is so funny. I love her one liners and it just comes naturally. She is without a doubt my favorite housewife.
Bethany I think you are fabulous!! I look forward to watching you each week! You and Jill are my favorite housewives!!
You look fab! Have you been working out? Your abs look amazing in the bikini you were wearing in Jill's pool. You're gorg!
I am really touched by your openness, and genuineness. You have so many strengths -- your humor, intelligence, skills. It was hard to see your pain. I feel like Jill's mother (and you are lucky to have friends like this), it's time to let go of your yearning for love from a father who can't give it. It's time to start seeing, emotionally, that it is HIS issue, and is not a reflection of you. You deserve to be loved, and you are not a mess, but you have to start by loving you.
I hope this does not sound like uninvited advice . . . it's just a reaction to your tears. I think you are terrific.
In my own life, it took me a while in therapy to actually figure out my mother didnt love me -- or that I didnt feel loved by her -- and that none of us kids did. I made peace with it. I won't lie -- the scars are healed and still there at times of stress.
You remind me of some of my good friends (I went to NYU) (clinical psych) -- a lot of life, a basically good person. I truly hope you find a loving, nurturing mate, and recover from that childhood haunted feeling of being unloved or unlovable.
Good luck, and with a lot of warmth.
Bethenny, LOVE you!! I have to get your book.. because how in the world do you stay so skinny and do what you do for a living?! I don't think you eat..! but you look great. Can't wait to see the rest of the season, started off with a bang so far! Love the "discountess" comment.
Bethany, you are an absolute riot! I nearly wet myself watching you imitate Jill.Keep the laughter coming!
You are a true gem. You've got the whole package: looks, personality, humor, confidence... you are looking for a man like you, but w/o the boobs! ;) I agree with other commentors, you & Jill are my favs. It was so touching to see you & her mom bond. As for the "Countess," last season I liked her a lot, this season? Meh. She seems a bit too full of herself and whats her hang up with having to be called "Countess." BFD. Get over it. What I like most about you is you say what you mean, and make no excuses for it. Let me slip into mom-mode for a sec, k? I hope you'll take this time, say 12 months to find a therapist you click with & be 100% honest with them. If you don't do it now, you'll be doing it when you're 50... it'll never get any easier. You're a doll! I love you & the show would be an absolute flop w/o you.
You are awesome! You are the only Housewife who is true and so down to earth! Your wit and sarcasm are one of a kind! You should write your own book - on humor!
And as I was skimming through the blogs - shouldn't LuAnne's say Countess LuAnne de Lesseps instead of just LuAnne? She should get over herself!
You & Jill are just the greatest inspiration of a true friendship! Also love when you call the OC wives out in your blog - they sure have that OC bitchiness down! There only needs to be on season and it should be NYC!!!
B. You are killing me with the 90s black slang. "Homie don't play dat?" *Groan* Stop watching In Living Color reruns and ask NeNe to help you upgrade to more current urban vernacular.
You are by far, the most "real"/intelligent, and hottest cast member of all of the members of All of the real housewife shows. You blow Nene and the rest away!! Nene's crude/mean, and instills fear in her "people" (friends, family, and fans) to get their support...Gretchen's the ultimate "fake" Barbie/gold digger, flirt and is like nails on a chalkboard and then, "cries" every time anyone questions her fake act/motives. I have to laugh at them and how they suck people/fans in with their extremely fake personalities/actions toward the rest of their cast members for attention. You just do your thing and say what you feel, but, not in a mean way.. with intelligence and honesty. You could have any man you want, but, you are very smart. You will find the right man for you without having to go out and stalk one/shake your butt in his face,, like Gretchen.. You have more than just beauty. You have a real personality and intelligence and honesty about you. You don't have to get surgery, fake hair, and act like a dimwit to get a man..
I love you! You have a great head on your shoulders and you are a fighter! Love seeing strong women and you are one of the strongest! Yes, you are dealing with some personal issues, but you know what, you're not alone! We all have our demons, and like you, we are doing what you can to get past them and make every day even more special than the one before! You are the reason I watch this show! Ok, so Jill too, but she can get on my last nerve!!! Thank you for being true to yourself, and showing us that it's ok to have a melt down, and not be afraid to face what scares the hell out of you! Jill's mom was an angel to you! I loved her!!! I hope to see her back on the show at some point! I want her to adopt me!!!
bethenny I must be a very wicked person becuse the alix and simon thing makes me embarrassd for them , I would hide under the other side of the world if I was them , but you and jill are so kind and still pull them in to your group , for me sorry no , some day they are going to inrajuce you to to your frinds . so be carefull I AM ENGLISH been in ny 15 years lets just say there are a lot of axs there and as a lady named silver porter would say old money would just not go there there DEARE. NO CLASS .
I just have to write and say you are HILARIOUS. Of all the "housewives" shows I think you really are the only woman who shows her true colors and I LOVE it. Your the type of girl people want to be friends with. I can't imagine what guy wouldn't want to date you. Keep up the great blogs and don't ever change! I love your personality!
What can I say, I'm hooked! I love the show and I think you are so damn funny! I hope Jill didn't get too up set about the impersonation of her, you made me laugh so hard that my sides hurt. I must say that you have to be a little crazy to put yourself out there like this. Dealing with a bunch of whinny, bitchy women doesn't sound like a lot of fun. But it is a lot of fun to watch! Hang in there!
you are absolutely hilarious! keep up the good work. You don't need a man to make you any better. those are just little details in life. Yes, when you catch a good one its fantastic but don't sweat it girl! Be who you are and no different. and from what i can see, you are beautiful, smart, sexy, HILARIOUS, and a great cook! so don't let it get to you honey! Your fabulous and by far my fav housewife!
i so appreciate your ability to say what you think in such a clever, humourous, not self-gratifying way. you amaze me with how you are able to live in a narcissistic over-the-top world and yet not pretend that you or your colleagues are better human beings just because of that. you are better, however, because of your ability and willingness to be straight with yourself -- not delusional, like others out there in the 'big world'.
you're hot, you rock, and us 'classy' haha midwesterners love you! thank you!
Honestly, you should have your own show. I am a NYer living in CA and I think the OC housewives are horrible. They are immature and lacking in class. I am proud to see you and Jill show the world how real friends treat each-other and how to behave with grace and dignity. Obviously, money does not buy any of these attributes. Or taste.
I just was eating butternut squash grits at home( delicious btw)...and watching tv and saw you on bravo...you are hysterical and so sexy.We would spend 10 hours a day peeing in our pants cracking each other up...I feel like the male version of you..I own a food distribution bus...small but cool..I deliver everything from fresh lox to fresh mozz....I grew up in Park Slope but am stuck in NJ...love dim sum..sushi...The Police..Billy Joel. I think we would really like each other...anyway..just a thought......Michael
