Bethenny Frankel is traveling in New Zealand for a whirlwind press tour, and she's recording all her adventures on Instagram Stories. One of The Real Housewives of New York City pal's first snaps showed her saluting fans with a jolly, "Hello Auckland, how are you?" But — bust out the Skinnygirl popcorn! — things took a quick and dramatic turn after that.
Here's the situation: Bethenny left one of her bags at the airport, and retrieving it proved to be just a slight hassle. From the back of a cab, the cocktail mogul shared her frustrating late-night plight with fans.
"Of course I left my bag at my airport because I bought so much, I forgot I had another bag. So now it's one in the morning here, [and I'm] eating a bag of chips, and going back to the airport. Living the glamorous life," she quipped.
And, things got a little more hairy from there. "No big deal, just driving around Auckland, [dealing with] street closures, at 1:30 in the morning, I have to be up in six hours to do 75 television shows... f---," Bethenny said. She added: "This driver just told me in 10 years he's never had every single street closed going to Auckland airport so I am evidently really bad luck."
When she finally arrived at baggage claim, things didn't look up much. The deserted area had an ominous look. "I'm walking alone in the middle of f---ing New Zealand and I feel like I'm going to get kidnapped," Bethenny said. "This is the middle of the night, this is a f---ing nightmare."
But in the end, it seems the RHONY pal was able to get her bag back. And by the next morning, she looked no worse for the wear.
Thank goodness things are finally looking up Down Under!
