Bethenny Frankel: Skinny Girl

What would kill her celebrity status is if we ALL stopped talking about her on any SM platform

I think that there's a difference between celebrity and notoriety: 

I've been following the Teen Mom2 boards for years, even though I haven't watched an episode since 2005.  I follow the saga of Jenelle Evans.  She had the celebrity (dubious as it might be) that came with being a long-time "star of a long-running MTV series.  Then, she married a loser who (among other awful things) shot her dog, and lost her place on the show.

Now, she has notoriety - her thread is still the longest and she remains the most talked-about cast member.  But her life is tanking without any income.  No products want to be associated with her.

I can see Bethanny sliding into that notoriety category if she can't work out a gig that keeps her relevant enough to sell shows and/or products.

Fortunately for Bethenny, even on her worst days, doesn't hold a candle next to the dumpster fire that is Jenelle. Bethenny, at least, has some redeeming qualities in her philanthropy (regardless of motivation), and her love for her daughter (though dysfuntional in it's own way, does not put Brynn in physical danger), but they do share a certain desperation.

Both seem to be blowing through their money in unsuccessful attempts to find new lucrative opportunities. Beth has more and better connections and a lot more money to play with, tho, apparently, only slightly more success recently. It will be interesting to see where they both end up. 

On a side note, are Brynn and Jace the same age? 10?

Was her big announcement her skinny girl vitamin supplement line selling at Walgreens? There is one for hair, skin and nails, collagen, and something to spice up your sex life!? If I had someone to have sex with I might try it, but since I don’t-I won’t. 😃

is she a doctor now? Pharmacist? Scientist? I am waiting for their actual benefits to be debunked in 5....4....3....2.....1!

She is hinting that her BIG ANNOUNCEMENT is regarding several TEEVEE shows she is producing that (surprisingly!) will be BETHCENTRIC. Apparently in partnership with Mark Burnett. Just another way to throw away that Skinnygirl money. She is very determined to make Bethenny Happen, I'll give her that. Guess she doesn't learn from past experience. Bethenny just doesn't happen because, well, too much Bethenny. She just cannot come to terms with this. People do not want to see Bethenny being Bethenny. The outcome is CANCELLATION. Maybe she should come back to RHNY for a third time because that's where her fans are.

The Skinnygirl supplement line is older news. She has a tendency to not take her own advice that she gave to Heather. She is all over the place with her brand. She will whore her brand name out to any product that comes knocking at her door, hoping that it will work out. SHE FUCKS EVERYTHING! She fucks shapewear, she fucks deli meat, she fucks jeans, she fucks supplements, she fucks blenders, she will even fuck kids products under the name Brynnygirl.

When her latest project/s tanks ( and there is no doubt of this) she will return to RHNY, and have yet another sobbing breakdown, another blame game, another fake therapist consultation. No matter that anyone else has problems, or challenges in life. If it's not about Bethenny, it's of no concern.

This outfit makes me want to do anything but shop skinnygirl.  I had jeans with embellishments like that when I was a teen in the 80s and that shirt looks like something I could buy at target after 10 washings.

I think I’m missing something with the monogrammed coasters. They just have the letter ‘B’ on them, right? Not her full monogram, just the ‘B’? Like anyone can get at Bed Bath & Beyond?

To my eyes, it’s only a step up from the people who use a mug with their initial on it (I was gifted one by a boss last year, LOL).

Yah, that’s the least of me gripes with Bethany.  I have my monogram and initials all over my house, and my apparel and my sons apparel / belongings.  I put my shit on EVERYTHING.  It’s actually a rite of passage in a sense.  I got my son his first Coach product with his monogram as a baptism gift.  EVERYTHING we own has our monogram or first initial on it.

Yeah, but also everything with her Insta is like that and she looks better than she has in years. Maybe she gained a few pounds so she doesn't look as hollow, or a new facelift or an old one settled. She looks healthier.

Thank goodness for those hashtags otherwise I wouldn't know where to find real love. Or happiness.

A) This may be the most Alexis Bellino thing I've ever seen from the east coast 2) Who the hell is keeping those chairs & appliances streak and fingerprint-free? If it's a housekeeper, Bethenny isn't paying them enough. If it's Bethenny, we can expect that tell-all from Bryn any day now.

I've seen multiple people besides myself predict that Bethenny's upcoming projects would be retreads of other shows, not only ones that she's been on, but everything remotely successful on reality tv. My Bethenny Frankel's The Recruit was what I thought her version of The Apprentice would be. She's not nearly the innovator she thinks she is.

Media wise or just in general? Bethenny and Fredrik had middling ratings, but Fredrik vowed to never work with her again. Her radio show didn't last long. Her talk show was canceled. She had to sell her Mercer Street apartment at a significant loss. She's had a ton of failed Skinnygirl products; it's good for her that she licenses Skinnygirl because those product failures would be significant if she was ponying up her own dollars.

Bethenny's programming isn't bringing anyone to HBO Max. We know because they just paid about half a billion for Friends. Greg Berlanti has a $400 million deal with Warner Bros. Berlanti has 21 shows across multiple platforms. Bethenny could surprise us, but the fact that her first project looks like Bethenny presents Bethenny Frankel's Approximation of the Apprentice does not fill me with confidence.

@HunterHunted  😉You definitely called this one correctly a month ago. 

The "Big Shot" comments on Reddit are, quite frankelly, scathing, and hilarious.  I can sum them all up in one simple word. NOPE. Twitter is luke warm.

Bethenny will sure show her arch nemesis Martha Stewart who's boss now!

I think that she pitched this to Bravo and they politely declined. She's gonna show them who's boss, too, at least for 8 episodes, then what? Will she finally figure it out?  Will she finally settle for a podcast series? Bethenny's Closet? Will we be Rollin' with Bethenny's Snomies? 

I suspect that "The Big Shot with (*STARRING*) Bethenny" will go down in history as "The Last Shot".

For those of you who enjoy the ponies... I just watched a beautifully filmed doc on Amazon Prime titled "Frankel the Superhorse":

https://www.amazon.com/Frankel-Superhorse-Greatest-Racehorse-Time/dp/B01JPHMB5A/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1F3WSBVDQN0BH&keywords=frankel&qid=1582233676&s=instant-video&sprefix=Frankel%2Cinstant-video%2C157&sr=1-1

The horse was named after Bethanny's father - owned by a Saudi bazillionaire, and trained by a "once great but down on his luck" British Aristocrat who hopes to make a comeback while battling cancer.  I loved it.

And it's also useful to appreciate the tragic backdrop for "poor B''s childhood in the wolf den (the film begins with, "This story unfolds in a rarified world"...).  🤣

I read that article. If anyone goes on that show (in front of the camera or behind the scenes) and then complains, that is on them because BF has shown what a vapid, selfish, abusive, mentally disturbed idiot she really, for reals!* is in that interview.  It was so flipping nonsensical! 

*she spends a lot of time using the word real in the article, like she is trying to convince herself of that reality. 

BF is a disturbed individual is what I came away with from that article.

Engaged in pathological procrastination,  sharing interesting(!) excerpts from the Reporter article seems, somehow, more urgent than the soul-deadening paperwork that I should be doing:

"I haven’t really had a person that I felt could live and breathe the brand, understand it, and speak as me, make decisions as me, write as me..."

So, in "a decade", you haven't found anyone who  is you understands your brand. Way to make your staff feel great.

"..So the lines are very blurred. And so you will have the opportunity to sit down with people at multi billion dollar companies and talk about brand strategy. But if my dog needs to walk, you’ll walk my dog. There’s nothing I ask anybody to do that I don’t do myself, even now..."

She's lacks any understanding of what a f'd up model that is for business. Only applicants raised in narcissistic family systems need apply...

 "...This is a lot of comedy. I’ve been on “The Apprentice,” and my friends when I came off were, like, “Why weren’t you funny?”  This is a lot more showing the personal side, and the warts..."

Oh, no.

"...A very successful, high, high multi-millions of dollars supplement business that’s at Walgreens.."

She's already beginning to sound like the Donald.  Maybe there's not enough oxygen in the penthouse suite.

The show summary says she’s searching for her next C Level executive. But in the interview she said the daily responsibilities would be sitting in on meetings and walking her dogs. Does she think the COO of Spanx takes notes for the CEO silently by their side at meetings, then drives to their home to walk Fido and Bowser and pick up the dog doo doo?

The Frankel on how her knockoff (cheater brand!) of The  Apprentice is totes different, because of her brand superiority:

" I’m starting on the show with a brand that’s elevated to a different level than he was, real estate notwithstanding."

...your "elevated to a different level"  brand includes selling real estate at a yooge loss and your daughter fondling your breasts to sell shapewear.  Holla!

According to Frankel, she provides a training ground to rival an MBA, Petunia!

A couple of years ago,  she tweeted at Page Six that working for her was "an opportunity to rival a business school education". (Nothing says future economic Czar like picking up Biggy's turds.)

Guys, what's the tagline she uses to fire the wahprentices?

"So I had so many ideas for shows, and one of them was to find my successor. The show came out of the need". 

"So long story short, I wanted to find my successor, and I realized that that would be an interesting show".

She is so full of shit. She makes it sound like she is seeking a person to take over her business. There is no way that she would ever let go of any control. The basis of the show is already a lie. She just wants to show herself as the big boss lady delegating "tasks", while humiliating and belittling those poor saps. I can just hear her screeching at them for grabbing her boobs incorrectly.

Against Trump?

"I mean, not against? Because I’d like him to say something, and he probably will. Everyone thinks he’s going to mention it, because he was part of Mark Burnett too, and all that". 

Yes, Bethenny. Everyone. Every single one.

"I was possibly going back, but I just kept thinking: I discussed it with my boyfriend and my friends on beach walks".

"It’s taken me longer to order a pasta dish than just to decide this". 

So she needs a beach walk and discussion with her boyfriend to choose between the lasagna and the rigatoni with vodka sauce?

"I then have to do the show and my real career. So if we’re just showing me having lunches and on vacations, then I’ve got three jobs — because I’ve got to be a mother too".

Yet she has time to capture hours and hours and hours of that on her Instagram.

"And you can’t pay me enough to just have a hysterical meltdown crying right now".

Apparently having hysterical meltdowns and crying pays an astronomical amount.

"I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m starting on the show with a brand that’s elevated to a different level than he was, real estate notwithstanding".

Wow, Bethenny, wow! Nobody can believe you're saying this. LOL.

It hasn't occurred to her that it's likely to backfire.  I liked her in the first season when she was the witty David against the Goliath of New York Society - too crude to ever be accepted by the Old Guard, but smart and motivated enough to at least get some respect. But now that she has some dough, mocking what will essentially be a group of her fans will not be a good look.

Yes, Bethenny. Everyone. Every single one.

Seriously - I live out in the boondocks and everyone is talking about it:

Feed Store - everyone was talking about Bethanny: "She's a genius!"

Diner  - everyone was talking about Bethanny: "She's smarter than Trump!"

Target - everyone in the store was talking about Bethanny: "We need MORE Skinnygirl products to buy! We LOVE Bethanny!"  One guy made up a song about her, right in line!

(those poor abuse survivors  scapegoats contestants...)

OK, I’m a bit out of touch on the latest Bethenny happenings, but why the heck is she getting rid of her Hamptons & Soho joints?  Does she have other places in Manhattan & the Hamptons?

Supermarkets near me (in Manhattan) used to put Skinnygirl sparklers on sale ALL the time.  Now they is gone, gone, gone.  Hmmmm.

Er, just what was the exact amount Bravo was forking over to her that was so “astronomical”?

In the Variety article, she says her brand is bigger than Donald Trump's was during the Apprentice. All current politics, personal feelings on this presidency, and anything political about him these days, aside -- he clearly had a "brand" during those carefree Apprentice days. But Bethenny Frankel and Skinnygirl is bigger than the "Trump" brand was at the time - she's crazy.

from the Variety article:

Those weren’t Trump’s businesses. Trump at that time, I think, had a vodka, maybe a water and suits at Macy’s, if I’m correct. And that can show you that even the president can have brands that don’t succeed. But I’m going into the show with over 10 brands that are succeeding, from apparel, to popcorn, to salad dressing, to supplements — these are all real. So that’s why I think it’s a more authentic version of “The Apprentice,” because it’s really my business. And all these things are legitimate businesses being sold in Walmart and Walgreens and HSN. Real names, like Orville Redenbacher and Conagra. I’m putting my money where my mouth is. I mean, it literally is my real business. So I don’t need to bring in a random partner to make up a task. The tasks are in my life every day. So I think that’s a great distinction and also a little bit of a — you know, a little pinch. Which you guys would probably enjoy. I’m sure he won’t.

I mean, not against? Because I’d like him to say something, and he probably will. Everyone thinks he’s going to mention it, because he was part of Mark Burnett too, and all that. But you know, it’s not the same. His brand at that time was not where my brand is. Aside from real estate.
