Bethenny Frankel: Skinny Girl

I would imagine it's something like being allergic to trees or grasses.  You can be allergic to some but not all of them, and they test for the types.  I also think it's probably easier to say that you're allergic to fish with fins even if there's 1 type you could eat, rather than go through the whole list every time the subject comes up.  I mean, I'm one of those people who developed allergies later in life and as a result am allergic to roughly everything in the world.  The scratch test was a lot of fun, and I reacted to all of it, except, I think, 1 tree.  For the life of me, I can't remember what that tree was, and it doesn't seem super important when my eyes are swollen and tearing up and I'm trying to explain that I'm allergic to everything that grows, so I usually just couch it as "I'm allergic to all trees, all grasses, all molds, dogs, cats, and even cockroaches"  

This is exactly what I do if I’m at a restaurant. I ask if the dish I’m interested in has any nuts. If they say yes—peanuts, or macadamias, or almonds, I will then say that those are OK and order. It’s easier to start out broad—otherwise I have to give the three “asterisks” before I even order and that gets tedious.

Sea bass? On an airline menu? Hahahahaha!

I’ve had it before on a South American route- it was actually pretty good.

You can literally chose your dish when you check in the day before. No need to wait or wonder.

On most airlines now, you can log in up to 30 days before departure & as little as 24 hours before takeoff to reserve your meal in the premium cabins. It’s not like she had no way of knowing what was being served.

Which might explain why she (or her assistant) called the airline ahead to let them know about her medical situation?

That she says was ignored?

I mean, I get that there's a portion of folks here who believed she wasn't hospitalized recently and or is lying about the severity of her hospitalization and or is lying about calling ahead or that the airline served fish at all or that this occurred at all, or is lying about how her allergy has changed over time and isn't really now prone to an anaphylactic, but based on how airlines often respond (or rather lack to respond) to allergen issues and based on the science of allergies (like Bethenny or not, science says, and anecdotal  accounts back up the reality that allergies can change over time) none of this sounds insane or implausible.

In fact the only thing I found hinky about the whole story is that fish was being served at all, and apparently thats more common on overseas airlines. Otherwise, take Bethenny's name out, and this story occurs pretty constantly with airlines.

Maybe she’s only allergic when she needs attention.

I'm not saying that she's lying - at all- I believe that she has an allergy and I believe she made the call.  But with all the available ways to know what you're going to be served ahead of time, and considering the severity of her allergy, I would have thought she would have noticed when she checked in, asked when she boarded and then if they were still serving fish, gotten herself off the plane prior to take off.   No problem with her raising hell over it, but I feel like she willingly put herself in the situation when she had so many avenues to discover what was being served and remove herself.

I don’t care if her allergy is real or fake, but I really am not in for umpteen seasons of RH of Bethenny on her death bed of fish fumes.   I do think in my opinion that she is paranoid of death due to Dennis’ untimely death.   Compounded with her previous neuroses, it tracks.  

Now, how does Ms. B continue on with her worldly jet setting life with her terminal issues?  Stay tuned...!!!! 🚫🐟

I agree. A season of watching Bethenny sit around, moping, taking sick-bed selfies a la RHOBH Yolanda, and making her poor driver listen to and clean up after her illness, isn’t my idea of fun.

Heheh I think she's had a health scare and is now equating everything to it when the ahem, obvious change in vision issue is likely that she's getting older.

Much like Lemon Lyme thought ALL of her symptoms were from Lyme disease and not Lyme disease, the side effects of her many arcane treaments, and MENOPAUSE.

Thanks for that article, interesting that it mentions the airborne danger as due to "For instance, allergic persons who are exquisitely sensitive to fish or shellfish can react to tiny aerosolized proteins that float in the air when seafood is being fried, steamed or boiled. There may be an increased risk of this in seafood restaurants where large quantities are being prepared and served piping hot." (article language in quotes).  Interesting that the problem seems to be during food preparation, and on the plane the food would be heated up while covered and in a sealed microwave.  So I'm not sure how much airborne danger there really is for fish.

I agree with others that allergies can get worse over time (my allergy to dogs certainly has!), and perhaps that's what's happening with B, though I fall on the suspicious side of anything she says.  I'm also surprised no one else from the plane has apparently commented on the situation, since I doubt B was whispering her concerns while on the plane.  That too makes me suspicious of the story.

If she or her assistant called once or multiple times, my guess is the airline thought they dealt with the concern by having a special "non-fish" alternate meal for her (like they used to do veggie or Kosher meals in steerage).  I'm not familiar with the joys of flying first class, but don't they have at least 2 meal options?

She went on this flight right after the poor boy died in Brooklyn who was also a severe asthmatic. His family was frying salt cod in oil in the apartment. He was having a bad asthma attack- they had an at home nebulizer. Frying oil carries everywhere in the air and they haven't determined if it was an allergic reaction that killed the boy. Bethenny's allergic reaction in Boston was from drinking a fish based broth. Based on the Insta-sleuth above, it seems she ingests fish, and we have seen her around fish all the time at sushi restaurants/trips - where she first met Jules 2 seasons ago. She never worries about cross contamination of touching items that may have fish on it. She seems to be lax about her allergy precautions until she's not.

I was just going to crack wise that she should get herself a nice RV. But you don’t want a driver behind the wheel of a 45-foot rig distracted by bloody pillows, so, there goes that idea.

Is it possible to pin this permanently: "Carole is NOT worth anything near $50 million."

The original analysis, which is reprinted all over the internet with an unbelievable amount of carelessness, fundamentally fails to consider that all of the Radziwill lands, castles, and property were seized by the Polish communist government and repurposed as schools, hospitals, government offices, and military buildings during World War II. Furthermore, Carole's father-in-law famously died $30 million in debt and had nothing to pass along to his children. Carole's mother-in-law is a famously self-absorbed spendthrift who had a bit of a drinking problem. Any money Anthony and Tina, Anthony's sister, inherited from Jackie O was because she knew how Lee was. Jackie started saving money when Anthony was young to pay for his schooling because Lee certainly hadn't and didn't save that money. Jackie left him $500K.

All of this is to say, Carole has refuted this $50 million claim many times over. Her apartment is paid for and is worth about $3.5 million. I figure with cash, savings, stocks, bonds, and other random other property and whatnot that she's worth between $5 - $6 million total. Not bad, but not $50 million.

Twenty-five million for Bethenny sounds about right. It seems a bit low, but not by much.

Beverly Hills has always been the big confounder. There were and are some seriously rich people in that cast. Viewers had no clue who Lisa Vanderpump was, but it was clear that she was quite wealthy and wanted to promote her restaurants. Kyle and Mauricio were fairly well off; it seemed equally likely that they were on to promote Mauricio's real estate career or restart Kyle's acting career. And before we realized that Kelsey was using the show as a mechanism to kick Camille to the curb, everyone was perplexed why she was on the show. Adrienne and tha Maloofs were worth more than a billion dollars of real money, not bullshit housewife money. Beverly Hills has had some fraudsters, but they've also had Yolanda, Joyce, and Carlton and David Gebbia who had some change.

Many allergies get worse. I don't think she made herself sick enough to stay on the hospital more than a day with her last scare. You have to be pretty bad to be let to stay in a hospital multiple days. You can be sure if I we're in her situation on the plane, I would have asked to get off too. I think anyone's life is more valuable than anyone's inconvenience.

Bethenny is now on a crusade to stop fish from being served on flights.

I get it. It’s serious. But notice how she didn’t care until it was about her? She doesn’t seem to care about people who suffer from other Big-8 allergy... nope, it’s just all about Bethenny. She even claims that peanuts are NOT airborne—which is garbage, because a) I know for a fact they are, and b) my tree nut allergy is airborne too.

I'm so not arguing her interest in the cause of allergies is motivated by self interest but....

Point me to the crusading parents demanding schools be peanut free who *don't have* peanut allergy kids.

Do we pointedly ask parents with peanut allergy kids why didn't they give a shit before? I mean, do we do that? Demand someone explain why they were a callous uncaring asshole when the problem didn't affect them directly? I mean, do not get me wrong, I'd love to see some crusading parent be pointedly asked "isn't this a thing you didn't care about until your child was directly affected and until then if it was someone else's kid, you couldn't care less if everyone smeared peanut butter on everything at school?"

Self interest is a great motivator. If Betheny wants to crusade on behalf of allergy sufferers, honestly, who is she hurting here?

* For the record, I had always been told peanut allergies were not airborne and it wasn't Bethenny Frankel who told me that, it was articles like this one

https://mkfa.info/blog/peanuts-on-planes-the-myth-of-airborne-allergens

Now personally, I am always respectful of nut free zones - my church for example went nut free on behalf of someone's unnamed child - but there's a lot of scientific studies, and not just Bethenny Frankel, who believe peanut allergies aren't airborne

Aside from the fact that I do know people who care about this who aren’t personally affected.... she certainly shouldn’t be making FALSE and/or uninformed statements about other life-threatening allergies to make her own sound more desperate. That COULD hurt people. There’s enough misunderstanding about allergy—we don’t need Bethenny adding her own misguided ideas to the pile. 

ETA: She’s not much of an advocate if she ignores dozens of people who try to correct her about the severity of other allergies.

What the heck is going on here? I thought she had the allergic reaction at a restaurant? It was actually at her boyfriends. He gave her miso soup in a to go cup? He left the room? Came back and managed to get a Benadryl down her throat? How do you get a Benadryl down the throat of an unconscious person?

It's really not that hard. She's prone to anxiety to begin with and while people are suggesting she is lying, by all reports she was hospitalized due to an allergic reaction that occurred *in a restaurant*. Now she's feeling anxiety over the idea of what happens if she's eating alone and there's no one there to call 911. 

My suggestion would be for her to get some therepy. It's called post traumatic stress, and it happens. At last check, we all have to cluck and nod sympathetically because Luann "not alcoholism" drinking problem is due to the stress she feels from a car accident that occurred about 20 years ago where no one was seriously hurt, so I'm not sure why it's inconceivable Bethenny might have some issues. An emergency hospitalization IS stressful. I personally think the wiser move isn't to throw herself at the issue but I don't find it implausible that this event might trigger some anxiety, especially when coupled with her age and awareness of her own pending lack of immortality.

 I didn't see any skepticism from Dr. Oz or the audience.  He was his usual overly-earnest self, intensely focusing his attention on his guest in an attempt to create the illusion that what they are saying is actually interesting. To the extent the audience members shown had any reaction at all, they looked like they were mildly bored to me. 

Dr. Oz pointing out that miso soup doesn't usually have fish in it didn't seem like an expression of doubt about Bethenny's story in my opinion. I think he was just playing at being a journalist, emphasizing the unexpected twist in the series of events that lead to all the drama.  He doubtlessly knew all the details of her story before she ever walked out on stage ... I'm sure he didn't invite her to appear so he could expose her as a fish allergy fraudster, lol.  That kind of thing is Dr. Phil's schtick, not Dr. Oz's.
