Bethenny Frankel: We All Have to Hit Bottom to Get Somewhere

Bethenny explains why she reacted the way she did to the nutcracker. 

By Bethenny Frankel
Dorinda Saves Christmas!

Well, we survived the Berkshires...barely. I’m glad we were able to have some laughs at the end of the night and start fresh the next day.
I absolutely love the holidays and was so excited that “Santa” came through for my daughter this Christmas with that incredible Nutcracker. This is the year when kids in her class begin saying that there is no Santa and the parents are the ones hiding the gifts, so I wanted to go out of my way to find something special. I mean that concept is ludicrous after all. Can you imagine parents hiding gifts? It’s, frankly, preposterous.
My daughter and I saw this nutcracker in the Hamptons and within five minutes, it was sold. Thus began the quest. I mean her nickname is “peanut.”
I am grateful to Dorinda for connecting me with that lovely gentleman Michael via group text. He was incredible. He hunted the piece down in Worcester, MA, and I purchased it immediately. He drove four hours to pick it up and deliver it to me personally. He saved Christmas, which is why I was so excited and focused my attention on him. Feel free to ask @Mikeharrisonart any questions about the origin of that nutcracker.
I am sorry that I couldn’t make it to the blood drive, but none of us could give blood, so I figured cash cards was the best way for me to contribute.

You Don't Support Other Women

That phone conversation was very negative, upsetting, and certainly not constructive, but life goes on.

These Are Serious Charges

As far as Luann, I am truly sorry for her having to experience that, get to that low point, and have to see herself that way in this episode. However, that helped with her incredible comeback. We all have to hit bottom to get somewhere. I’m sure she is also sorry to the Palm Beach Police Department for the entire spectacle.
