Bethenny Frankel shared the severity of her food allergy with the world when she revealed that she fell unconscious and was rushed to the ER as a result of eating soup with traces of fish; she nearly died. Shortly after, she faced more danger when she boarded a flight where the the on-board meal was seafood, and the mere exposure could have killed her.
Now, The Real Housewives of New York City business mogul is revealing new dietary concerns — in the just kind of colorful language that you might expect from her.
"Just when you thought it couldn’t get sexier," Bethenny shared with 1.6 million Twitter followers on March 8. "I was diagnosed today with 'leaky gut syndrome' and a wheat allergy. Could there be a more vile title? That I wouldn’t have put on my dating profile. Ok tweeps, hit me with the info."
At least Bethenny's own brand of humor softens the mood of the discussion concerning what can be very serious — even potentially deadly — dietary issues.
And, relievingly, Dr. Oz recently shared some encouraging news for Bethenny and others in her position.
