Why are these regarded as insights and reflections? First, Bethenny may have been in the LA area in 2001 during the strike that actually pushed reality tv to the forefront, not the one in 1988 - but pretty much any actor, writer or executive was spouting this while it was happening almost 20 years ago. Second, anyone who claims to be involved in charity work and jokes about their assistants can have several seats.
Third, picking up a camera? Easy. Creating great content? Not so much. There are a few chefs right now providing worthwhile videos, but our world is changing. Quit trying to market to it for a minute and trust that you don't know everything.
"I WAS forced, Andy. Thank you so much." I rewatched that reunion recently and KKB's narcissistic denial still kills me.
This. Bethenny ordered the drink by name then clearly explained the recipe more than once during the first season at Phillipe, where she knew the owner or had some kind of arrangement. Like, who does that unless they're marketing the item? Or am I supposed to sit at a random restaurant and order a Chicktini ('It's dry gin, prosecco and raspberry puree with crushed spiced beer nuts around the rim to bring out the juniper') and expect them to complement my invention?
Slightly o/t when Denise Richards orders a casamigos on RHBH I lose my damn mind. It's obvi she has some kind of deal with them or Bravo wouldn't keep airing her repeated requests for it.
If Bethenny offered the first bottled mixed drink she must have time travelled back to my high school graduation to get me drunk. That crap has been around forever.
Although I hated the sg cosmo and thought the margarita was only tolerable with a hit of seltzer, I thought the brand would have more staying power in individual bottles/cans. The price point was kind of high considering one could buy a drinkable vodka or tequila for a dollar or two more. Granted I know nothing about shelf stability or packaging and I'm sure Bethenny wanted to think of sg as a sophisticated product, but it really seemed like it was a better fit for the cider-hard tea audience.
