Must be really fun to have someone just follow you around taking pictures all the live long day. What an ego.

Its as if she feels compelled to prove that she spends time with her kid, despite all her globe-hopping with the boyfriend du jour.

Has anyone seen Madonna: Truth or Dare? Warren Beatty says about Madonna "She doesn't want to live off-camera, much less talk. There's nothing to say off-camera. Why would you say something if it's off-camera? What point is there existing?" It's as true about Bethenny as it is about Madonna.

It's just so sad to me that someone would require as much attention to survive as they would food.

I can understand someone posting on Instagram "My Kid's graduation, My fantastic beach vacation, My Dad's 80th Birthday, Wow! I lost 30 pounds".

But hours and hours, minutes and minutes, seconds and seconds of Hey Look At "my dogs licking each other, me at the grocery store, a butterfly in my yard, animal feces on my property, watch me lip sync countless songs, hey I'm at a restaurant surrounded by fish, even though I'm allergic." 

Oh and this is my daughter who's face cannot be seen on SM, but her butt is fair game.

Bless her egocentric little heart.

I wonder what she would have done if she had lived back when there were no cameras or SM. 

Never mind. She would have died due to dehydration.

There’s a photo on Instagram of her wearing a blue strapless swimsuit with a BELT.

Yesterday she posted a video showing the salt that was stuck in her swim suit. Riveting.

She just makes it so very easy to poke fun at.

Honestly!! Season one Frankel would go to town on the stuff she posts today.

Salt? 

Did she post an update? Did she get the salt out? Why isn’t she live-streaming this? This is torture!

I notice she is reeling Paul into her videos more and more.  He is going to resent this later.  

Did anyone notice the cuff with diamond letters she displayed on an IG story?  I don't know if it was gifted or she bought it.  She tagged the store.  The diamonds said "Bryn loves Paul."  No, Bryn loves her daddy, not Paul. Don't confuse her even further.  She loved Dennis less than a year ago.

Children are able to love more than one person.  The best you can hope for in a divorce is that the people that come into their lives are people they love.  Loving Paul does nothing to her love for her father, which should and always be a totally different relationship.  No one should expect wither Bethenny nor Hoppy to become celibate hermits to protect Brynn.  In fact it could be argued that Brynn is best served by her parents having loving healthy relationships.

But this is what the insta world is like.  From Jessica Simpson getting death threats over her daughter having colored her hair to Chrissy Teigen getting reported to CPS because someone didn't like the looks of the swimming pool.

Bethenny's insta is rather tame compared to a lot of the celebrity or mommy accounts.  That's the social media world we live in.

Not defending Bethenny but the smiley face thing is common among a certain set of celebs who want to post pictures but don't want their kids identified (Kristen Bell/Dax Shepherd do it and so does Ryan Hansen, there are others but I can't think of them off the top of my head lol) so while I agree it is kinda creepy looking Bethenny isn't the only one doing it.

 I absolutely agree with you about Bethany and her daughter and the love she has for the father and the man in her life.  We all can love more than one person in different ways.

In most situations, I think it's great when a divorced parent finds love again - and slowly incorporates the kids. With Bethenny, it does have a little bit of FU to Jason because of the  social media flaunting - including Bryn in as one of Dennis' children in a fathers day post, a Bryn love Paul bracelet - I would believe it more if she kept that stuff private and intimate as she tries to rebuild a family. I personally find it obnoxious, but then again, I find most of social media in general obnoxious. I think more than anything, it just comes off like what Bethenny described her own childlike was like - her mother parading different men in and out of the picture. It's one thing if kids are older, but at Bryn's age, it just seems too much to introduce her to different men, like here's mommy's new boyfriend of the moment for you to love. Bethenny is so guarded in other ways, but she almost seems to be missing a filter when it comes to this. Just my personal opinion, obviously opinions vary.

That's just odd.  Now someone can tell me if I'm wrong, because I don't follow Instragam, but presumably B was wearing this cuff, bought/ordered from a store, and the bracelet had actual diamonds?

That's just a FU to her child's father.  I seriously doubt her daughter went up to B one day and said, "let's spend lots of money ordering a diamond bracelet for Mommy to wear that says I love your current boyfriend."  Nope, her daughter might say, "mommy, I want to make bracelets that say I love Mommy and Daddy" for the them to each wear, but B wouldn't like that.

Never mind, once she breaks up with Paul, which is guaranteed to happen, what does she do with the cuff?  Recycle, hope the next guy is named Paul?

I agree with others who say a child can love more than one person, but we have zero idea what this child really thinks (as it should be, she's a child for crying out loud!).

I do follow her on insta and admit I missed this.  I did look at her photos and the insta stories saved in fashion and didn't see this.  There was a story last week of a bracelet that a vendor sent her as swag (so I doubt it was real diamonds) but didn't notice if it said that.  I'm just assuming it was there because someone said so.

I haven't seen the bangle since, but I did see it.     I don't know if it was real or fake diamonds, but I've seen these bracelets on other Instagrammers and in their case, its definitely real diamonds.  The style is pretty tacky, IMO, but its trendy right now. 

Dennis died last August 10th, and Bryn had an "engagement" ring from him.  I would see nothing wrong with a cute little wayside stand string bracelet from Paul to Bryn but I do think this bangle was inappropriate.  But it might have been gifted by a jeweler (in which case Bethenny should have returned it) or Bethenny might have bought it  for herself, who knows. 

I'll screenshot it if I ever see it again.   Its like the one below with the numbers in diamonds.

It's one thing for Bethenny to think that Bryn LOVES Paul, but to have a bracelet made saying it is a bit 12 year oldish.

Seriously? What the fuck? BRYN LOVES PAUL? Did she also carve it into a tree?

Then to post it is just, well, bizarre to say the least. 

She is whacked.

There is no evidence that this bracelet even exists.  The stack that is pictured is the one I’ve seen before.  The Hakuna Mata is something I remember seeing.  But I’ve not personally seen the Brynn Loves Paul so that’s still an unknown.  So it has not been posted as a picture.  It MAY have been posted in an insta story that disappears in 24 hours.  We do not know.  The first I’ve seen it mentioned is in this thread.  It has not popped up in her comments.  It’s a MAYBE at this point.

Well if there is any doubt about Bethenny's mothering skills, just check out her instastory right now. Again sexualizing her 9 year old daughter.  I suppose Bryn is allowed to express herself?

What a sicko. I guess the custody trial is over. If Jason had posted these videos of Bryn and her dirty dancing as Beth just did he would be toast.

I saw a child dancing like no ones watching.  Today I saw Bus Philipps youngest dancing.  Yesterday I saw Chrissy Tiegen’s daughter dancing.  I’m not seeing any sex just children dancing.

I think we should stop Bryn from expressing herself immediately.  We should shame her with sex.  After all she’s eight years old so she needs to start shutting down.  Dressing modestly.  If something happens it will be her fault for wearing a two piece bathing suit and laughing out loud.

Bryn can express herself. But her mom should probably let her express herself privately, not for the whole world to see. 

It's not just dancing. It's sexual. A nine year old. Posted publicly. 

Again, if this was Jason posting this, it would be a shit show.

I wouldn’t say a thing.  It would probably be a fun thing for Jason to involve himself in his child’s world.  It’s what eight year olds do.  And they post it publicly.  And I don’t see it as sexual at all.  And I’m not comfortable with all this talk about a child being too sexual. So peace out.

Post trial briefs are due on August 21st, so it's not over yet.

That's probably why the vids of Bryn keep appearing (and why Frankel isn't even trying to hide Bryn's face in the last set of stories).  Their custody agreement is to not show Bryn on social media - that was mentioned in court last month - so if Hoppy gets angry enough about that being ignored, and leaves an angry phone message or sends a nasty text, presumably Frankel can trot that out as proof she's being (as she put it) "tortured."

My question about the lastest installment of Bryn Lives Online 4 U! is why didn't Bethenny just leave it it at Bryn dancing with the dogs?  Genuine, adorable,  age appropriate, nothing private breeched; just a sweet moment. Why wasn't that good enough? Why the need for anything else?

Exactly, @hoodooznoodooz.

Between Frankel's live-in boyfriend Cerussi (a man credibly accused of raping a coed with his buddy)  Frankel's "fiance"  Dennis (still married even as he handed out rings to Bryn and her mother) and Paul (who - given Frankel's track record - may or may not be a bigamist freebasing undercover Russian oligarch working for the Kremlin) Bryn has been serially bonded with multiple male figures on multiple vacations, family outings, movie nights, and even school events. That's not slowly integrating a genuine life partner into your child's life, that's playing insta-family....until the man disappears: and the next new daddy-uncle enters the picture. 

The man Bryn needs to spend time with is her Dad, not Bethenny's endless parade of fucked-up fuckbuddies.

To answer the other poster, Bethenny was holding it, so I do not know who the bracelet was for or from.  I  think she thanked the vendor.

Her Instagram last night.

Sweet baby jeebus. So much WRONG.

I guess I don’t need to communicate my dislike of her “Talkin’ to my Doggeez!!” voice. Shut it, Frankel. Just. Shut. It.

In my opinion, her doggeez don’t actually like swimming in the effin pool. They immediately swim to the stairs to exit. But Frankel keeps placing them in the water.

I agree with Happy Camper. The dancing is not appropriate for SM. She is also dancing to a song in which a man is singing, I love your body, or something to that effect. Plus, whoever is holding the camera (cough, cough: the SkinnyGirl; have we mentioned how wonderfully Skinny this Girl is?) consistently zooms in slightly on Bryn’s tuchus and/or frames it so that the focus is her tuchus (I have noticed this previously as well).

Sorry for the redundancy, but even if Bryn told Frankel to post this, she is nine years old. Now it’s on the internet, and she will not appreciate her friends and classmates ridiculing her about this in a few years.

To me, this looks like Stephanie Gottlieb a jewelry designer created a bracelet for Bethenny with Brynn and Paul's names on it and sent it to her for free to get a mention in her instagram which is crazy common among "celebs" on insta. Bethenney then posted it and @ mentioned the designer which is why the designer sent it in the first place. That one looks to me like the "Mini Personalized Slider Bangle" which run about $5000 retail give or take for the amount of "charms" this one has. The designer is basically willing to eat her cost for making it in order for 2.1 million people to see the post and think "oh that's cute, maybe I should get one". Again, this is a  thing that happens on Instagram daily with people who have WAY less followers than B. I don't think there's any intended malice here. It's a savvy company knowing B will show the bracelet because it's got her daughter and boyfriend's names on it and is blingy.

I also think the bracelet was for Bethenny's true loves and not that Bryn loves Paul.  I wonder if the charms can be replaced?  If so, this company is a genius to send it to Bethenny because she can drop some coin to swap out the charms every time her next love comes along!

Hee, hee! to the name of this series and also the bolded!

Sadly, there is someone in my life who shares many of Frankel’s character flaws. His childhood was completely unstable. Birth mother abandoned the three children when he was about 2 years old. The authorities ripped him from the foster parents at approximately age 6. The stepmother finally cut her losses when he was about 10 (the father was an ulcohulic). Birth mother also rejected him as an adult.

I am no therapist, but I do believe, as a result of all this trauma, he is now a textbook narcissist. He has zero empathy.

He needs others to validate him constantly. 

He is neurotic and suffers from OCD.

And this astounds me: he has no sense of loyalty. He maligns EVERYone. His brother. His nephew. His “best” friend. 

He trusts no one.

How can self-proclaimed “intelligent” Frankel not realize how damaging this is to Bryn? Pulling the rug out from her again and again. Why subject her to so much heartbreak?

OH, its more than that. Bethenny undoubtedly got paid for showing it and tagging the designer.   That's how IG works, nothing is free.  But no matter who created the words, Bethenny chose to show it to all the world.  

You think she isn't paid for putting that diamond encrusted Audemars Piguet right in front of the lens and tagging the brand and the jeweler every chance she gets?   The watch is not even her style.

OH, its more than that. Bethenny undoubtedly got paid for showing it and tagging the designer.   That's how IG works, nothing is free.  But no matter who created the words, Bethenny chose to show it to all the world.

Instagram requires the hashtag #ad if money was exchanged.  If you are just showing the fancy chocolate heart with the perfume you got from Kim K then no tag is required.

And they all follow the rules, right?  Just as Bethenny follows the rules on showing Bryn.   

This article is two years old but I  think is still relevant.

Okay, to be fair to this narcissistic, arrogant, hypocritical, egomaniacal drama queen, because even horrible people deserve objectivity once in a while, and for some bizarre reason, I am feeling magnanimous toward her at this moment (but I am going to tear into her in my next post), is it possible that this bracelet is announcing that Frankel’s true loves (today) are Bryn and Paul? 

I dunno. She’s hopeless.

That was the only inoffensive rationalization I could come up with too. The design of that I think would be best would have hearts (2?) at the beginnings and ends of their names, or perhaps all the way around, so it looks less like "Bryn loves Paul". I wonder if "Dennis" is on the other side? (unintentional pun, but I'm keeping it in).

Even if this is the case, it would be nicer to have 2 bracelets. One with just Bryn.

For Bryn's sake.

ETA: Cross posted with Sweetie!

I feel like Bethenny is savvy enough to know that what she posts is going to get a reaction, so she pushes the envelope on purpose. What that purpose is, I have no idea - it does feel more like it's trying to provoke Jason's anger and a reaction more than just merely showing fun moments with her daughter to her large following. 

I do think the bracelet is more Bethenny's "loves" than a statement on Bryn loving Paul. But totally agree those gems need to be swappable or it will probably be an obsolete piece of jewelry at some point!

Stephanie most likely enclosed two back-up alphabets, if she has even an inkling of Frankel’s MO.

I'd be surprised if Gottlieb didn't run the design by Frankel before making the piece (similar to what Gottlieb did with Sonja - when Sonja got jewelry for her daughter's graduation  she thanked Gottlieb for spending "personal time with her" to do the bracelet). Comping an expensive piece without knowing if the woman you're targeting for free publicity likes it seems a bit risky to me (even more so when that woman is in a bitter custody battle - one in which a major issue for one side is the child being bonded to new male figures too fast).

Could be @hoodooznoodooz - whatever the intent,  I think it's insensitive to show this piece anywhere near the anniversary of Shield's death.  I didn't much like the man, but supposedly, Bethenny did, and this makes him seem completely disposable (especially in light of how big a deal she made about the jewelry Dennis gave her  - wearing Dennis' engagement ring to custody court last year, talking about the ring he bought for Bryn, Frankel saying all season they were engaged, etc etc). With all that history, it seems "off" flashing a Bryn/Paul bracelet so close to the death day of a man she publicly mourned as if he were the love of her life, and she his devastated widow.

Bryn can express herself. But her mom should probably let her express herself privately, not for the whole world to see. 

It's not just dancing. It's sexual. A nine year old. Posted publicly. 

Again, if this was Jason posting this, it would be a shit show.

My daughter, who is 12 and can't wear tank tops to school because it shows her shoulders, commented about that, that maybe adults should stop sexualizing normal things. That it's sick.

Wearing a tank top and showing shoulders is far far from what Bethenny is posting on her instastories.

I don't Beth has an iota of revelation that what she is doing to her daughter is wrong.  She has no relationship with her family.  She hates Bryn's father.  Any so called friend or employee doesn't have the guts to tell her to check herself.  She has men walking through the door and suddenly leaving.  This is not good for her child.  Yes, she can have relationships with men but Beth goes in hard.  Too fast.  I feel sorry for Brynn.
