Bethenny Frankel NY

Thoughts and recaps to the season and NYC reunion.

on Apr 23, 2008

As for the term socialite, its definition is: a socially prominent person. I find the whole discussion and term vulgar. There was a part on the show that was edited out where I gave my true opinion on the term socialite. As for the "real socialites" that have been vocal about their disdain for the show and the nerve for some of us to act like we are socialites: I have never acted like I'm anything, and anyone whose biggest aspiration is to be "socially prominent" is as pathetic as anyone trying to be.

If Alex and Simon had any interest in being socialites, this show may have changed their views. Alex and Simon have taken a lot of heat and it is upsetting. However, this is what you may be subjected to if you agree to open up your life to the world and agree to be on a reality show. I think they had very warm moments in the last episode, and I think that it is entirely clear that they deeply care for and love their children. I believe that if they had simply been open about the things they aspire to have, that they want to meet interesting people and "better their station in life", that people would respect that. It is very difficult to have cameras on you and trust the process and how you will be portrayed for the whole world to see. this process is definitely a learning experience.

Ramona walked out when Alex's photos were brought up. Were you surprised by her behavior?

I was absolutely not surprised at her walking out. Have you met Ramona?
