Check It Before You Wreck It
Bethenny on her magazine cover, her new book, and her blowout with Luann!
First of all, what kind of a narcissistic twit would say that people are envious of me? I just threw up in my mouth. Horror show.Well, guess what? I always tell the truth. Sometimes I just don't like how it sounds on-air. I'm sometimes envious and others are too. There it is.
Next, thanks to you guys and your purchases, Naturally Thin is already at 100 on Amazon. It's a recession-friendly price and it means so much to me that you supported me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I had a really fun time doing the Social Life shoot. I'm always cooking or stressing and admiring my wrinkles and black circles from no sleep, so this was a nice departure.
I really couldn't believe that anyone gave me a cover of anything. It was fun and sweet and exciting. No one is confusing me with a model anytime soon, so it was different for sure. The photographer Gino was spectacular and that Zang Toi dress was magical. Fun all around.
I was absolutely offended when LuAnn mentioned the retouching. Jill has never met a battle she didn't like and LuAnn loves to give a dig with a smile, whether it's about Ramona's Hamptons Classic outfit or Jill using lipstick at a table. I just found it unnecessary. I'm assuming that a magazine knows how to make this hag look good. I didn't need Luann's "protective" two cents. I don't recall her being on any covers.
I think LuAnn needs to check herself before she wrecks herself. Ramona tells it like it is and LuAnn tells it how she wants it to seem. Enough about that for now.
There is no reason to get in Ramona's way. I love when she gets lit. It's like someone jumping on one of my one-liners. Let people be who they are. LuAnn threw Ramona a dig and Ramona lashed out. The viewer will hate Ramona for it because LuAnn drives the getaway car. Ramona robs the bank. The only problem is that Victoria was there. That's where Ramona screwed up. Other than that, let her rip.
I never avoid anything I don't want to. I pick my battles. I was a rabid dog after LuAnn about the retouching, but there were undertones going on that I couldn't say on camera, and I really was never going to get Luann to give me the response that I wanted and knew to be true. I was filling space by repeating information.
As for me "not getting" the countess thing — "Darling," I get it. I just don't buy it.
The magazine launch party was fun. It's hard to believe, but I only like being the center of attention when it happens naturally or because I say something funny. Otherwise it can be uncomfortable. I'm so grateful and that was a great night for me, Jill, Bobby and Ramona, and they were really supportive and happy for me.
