Bethenny Frankel: Skinny Girl

My goodness that's an ugly sweater.

True story: on this website, I used to see ads for comfortable, mom-friendly, yet still funky, hip, slightly edgy clothing with aesthetically pleasing color combinations. Then I clicked on the link for Frankel’s frumpy, Benjamin-Moore-paint-chip-inspired sweaters. Now I see ads for outfits a court jester might wear or something that we could mistake for a sports team uniform.

It really was a mistake to use that Skinnygirl name for everything Bethenny was trying to sell. It was fine for food, drinks, vitamins and supplements. Maybe for shapewear. But the other stuff...that's a branding mess. What's "skinny" about face cream, candles, hair products, sweaters, jackets, and shirts? From the moment she realized that she was going to start developing product lines where "skinny" made zero sense in the branding, she really should have come up with and developed an alternative brand like "SG by Bethenny," "B Real," or "BF by Bethenny" to stick all of those products in. Many people have said it before and I'm going to say it again that it was a mistake not to do that. That "Skinnygirl" name is just an albatross on those other products.

In the world of business, it seems BF is a one-hit-wonder.

How in the world did she end up on Shark Tank when, at the end of the day, her only really successful product has been Skinny Girl margaritas? I must be missing something.

She's amazing at PR - an umbrella under which I include her time on RHONY - but that seems to be it.   How in the world did she end up on Shark Tank when, at the end of the day, her only really successful product has been Skinny Girl margaritas. I must be missing something.

Because she is a loud mouth with a strong opinion on EVERYTHING.  I haven’t watched any of her episodes, do the others get along with her or does she just talk over and argue with them all since she is a know it all?  I like the other judges on there...

There is a rumor a very famous kid may be enrolling at the Pine Crest School, Bethenny’s alma mater. The article I read touted that it is extremely elite private school—poor Bethenny, such a disadvantaged childhood. See Webster’s Dictionary: W for  White Privilege.

I'm on rhony s8, first ever watch through the whole series. I disliked her earlier but when bethanny came back in s7, she was just spectacularly unbearable. Shes a vile bully. Shes not a straight talker. Shes hypocrital, mean spirited, shit stirrer, condescending, obnoxious and narcissistic. Imagine how she would go on the attack of someone behaved they way she did and says the stuff she does. I actually find her hard to watch through. At least there are some episodes where ramona stays quiet and can make you laugh.

I miss the chemistry of the s6 cast. I hate how she low key bullied kristen because she could. Heather would try to stand up. I hate how bethanny corrupted carole. Are carole, Heather and kristen still close?

The mistake is thinking Bethenny only had one successful product. She's had two. The first is Bethenny Frankel. The second is Skinnygirl margarita.

She can't flog her booze business because she sold it. The rest of the Skinnygirl business is like Acme Corporation in a Looney Tunes cartoon; they make EVERYTHING and none of it works or seems worthwhile. This means Bethenny has to go back to selling her original product--Bethenny. Bethenny has mostly negative opinions on everything because the only product that she thinks has a future and is worth a damn is herself.

Perhaps Frankel is so delusional, narcissistic and egomaniacal that she thinks she can brainwash/has brainwashed her fans into believing that Skinneee gurrRll is a synonym for a cool, superior-in-every-way Woman.

That's really interesting about Bryn and Pine Crest. I have an ex whose ex-wife went there. I don't know that it is *extremely elite - it's no Choate or Hotchkiss or even Lawrenceville where Tinsley went or Taft where Sonja's Q went. I think its probably solidly upper middle class. Actually now that I think of it, I'm not sure if Pine Crest is still boarding. It used to be. So does that mean Bethenny is moving to Florida?

It is another famous kid I don't want to name names I just found the article interesting because it went on and on about how elite the school is.....  newsbreaking because the child is pretty elite as well.

From her IG three days ago.   Strangely silent Bethenny when political events are happening.  Posted with a pic with a smirking smile.

I know I’ve been pretty close-mouthed lately. When I have something seemingly interesting to say, I suppose I’ll say something. Social media is a mixed bag for me… It’s really not in my natural comfort zone and sometimes I just want to check out and focus on living my life rather than documenting it and trying to choose how to share it here… I am, ironically, one of the most private, insular people you will ever meet. #thisisme

I think its a combination of things.  She doesn't want to make public the reunion with Paul and her trip to Miami during a pandemic.  (Many UK influencers were reamed for traveling to Dubai during worst days of covid).   And she'll never takes a stand on political events to prevent alienating many of her admirers.   Thank heavens she finds time to hawk HSN products, vitamins, sexual toys, jam, and salad dressing.

Word on the street is that Bethenny is coming out with a new Rose. Today on DeuxMoi it was reported that she was seen in Boston with her film crew at a restaurant called Mistral. Some sort of promo. Also of interest, she and Andy have unfollowed each other on instagram. Shortly after Bethenny was on Danny Pellegrino podcast, Andy was a guest on Danny's podcast. Noticed that Bethenny was bragging about Andy being a guest on her podcast but it has never aired. I suspect that Bethenny was mad about Andy appearing on Danny's podcast around the time that she was about to air her own podcast with Andy. Everyone was loving Andy's appearance on Danny's podcast. It was Iconic. Combination of Bethenny being a total Bitch on Danny's podcast and Andy being a hit with Danny, I suspect that they (Bethenny and Andy) had a falling out. We will never see Bethenny's podcast with Andy. They are done. Bridge Burned.

Also interesting that Bethenny and Andy have unfollowed each other on Instagam.

I’ve said it before; the minute Julie announced on camera she was leaving was the minute Jason knew the marriage was over. Julie was the only one who could keep Bethenny (relatively) in check. With Julie gone, there was no hope for anything even remotely resembling a sane existence.

This was referencing her podcast with Andy as guest which was recorded last summer. Bethenny talked about it in September when she announced her new upcoming podcast so it had already been recorded by then. Funny that she had not released this podcast until today, around six months later and she's making it seem like she recently recorded the podcast.

That's an old picture.

Well, I don’t pay a lot of attention to social media but the fact that Bethenny posted this on Instagram is suspect. When you burned all your bridges, what do you do? 
Your “shows” didn’t take off, maybe because of COVID, but seriously it wouldn’t have mattered- it would have failed. Any show Bethenny did where she was the focus hasn’t ended well. What would have been different now? Nothing because she’s still Bethenny.

Poor Byrnn - when you don’t deal with core issues, you repeat the cycle instead of breaking it. I really hope Brynn can break the cycle.

Yes Bethenny, you are JUST like Gisele. And have such strong ties to Boston too. She's such a poser.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CLANTk9jI95/

So the article talked about celebrities and Ramona and Bethenny were on there. 🤣 what has happened?

Bethenny comparing herself to Giselle, well, that’s just funny.

One difference, Giselle and Tom Brady have been married since 2009. Meanwhile, Bethenny has been in the middle of a divorce since 2012. This may or may not get resolved prior to Bryn turning 18.

Huh! I found the listing photos pretty easily. It's traditional but it looks very Bethenny already with lots of red accents. A lot of the 1945 charm has already been renovated out of it, and I'm sure she'll quickly take care of the rest with her (awful) aesthetic.

Greenwich is a beautiful town.   Her Hamptons house is pretty small and I suspect she's gotten sick of it being there almost full time since March.  I wonder if she plans to dump it.   I wouldn't see any reason to own both in Greenwich and the Hamptons.  I love her Hamptons house.   Greenwich schools are great too.  Maybe she's preplanning for Bryn's high school.

The woman proudly posting pics of herself fitting into a very young Brynn’s clothes and getting slapped down by a family court judge for doing so?
