Bethenny Frankel: Skinny Girl

Recommended Posts

Quote

She is also gearing up for the release of her show The Big Shot with Bethenny.

It's funny that Disney+ ALSO has a show of that name about a washed-up college basketball coach disgraced after a tantrum at a big game who ends up as a coach that a girls' high school.  That show just dropped. John Stamos plays the coach.

Three guesses as to which will be a more successful venture...

For these reasons, Bethenny just might move to Boston.  What will happen with Bryn will be interesting.  Does she need Jason’s permission?  I don’t know how that works.  Do they have fifty fifty?

Jason may very well have retained the right to determine where Bethenny lives with Brynn. She blamed him for forcing her talk show to be located in NYC because he wouldn't allow Brynn to move to LA.  

I can't see Bethenny living in Boston.  I lived in the North End and Back Bay and I can say that Bethenny doesn't have that Boston vibe.  It's more low-key than her big, fast-talking, loud persona.  It's a bit more reserved, a LOT more intellectual and more New England than New York.

Well, she's right about being a clown and the g*d d*mned circus 😄

This is a Devil Wears Prada remix in episode format. Except Bethenny is no Miranda Priestly.

I don’t subscribe to HBO Max and can’t imagine doing so for this, but I will definitely read all your comments and snark.

The trailer was 90% Bethenny of course.

I can tell you which one my son and I started watching last night.  😂.  Mama can’t say no to some Stamos.  
 

Man she looks thin in those clips.  I know she is, but it’s always jarring to see the skin and bones.

Bethenny should have taken a page from LVP and Kim Z's shows. Have it set at the Skinnygirl offices, with her babysitting a bunch of pretty but vapid bed-hopping group of employees, all while carrying a (Skinnygirl branded) red solo cup.

Hence me saying she should have taken a page from her book lol

I mean, I don’t expect her to, but some Bravo formulas seem to work better than others if you want to last longer than 3 seasons.

Bethenny Frankel Is Back on TV Because ‘I Know What People Want to See’

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/23/arts/television/bethenny-frankel-the-big-shot.html

What do we get wrong? What don’t we see?

What people probably don’t realize or believe is I am the most private person that I know, which is the craziest irony. I’m private about moments and experiences. I’m more of a homebody than anybody that I know, short of someone being agoraphobic. I do not leave my house and I do not put on hair and makeup unless I’m being paid to.

Not even her parts are private.

If she knew what people wanted to see, her talk show would still be on the air.

From the woman who runs around naked in front of camera crews and does a spread eagle to state

The loft has been on the market almost a month, no contract yet. I guess not surprising considering the asking price and the current state of the housing market in Manhattan. Obviously Ryan Serhant knows what he's doing better than anyone, but to go from $4.2M to $6.9M (renovation notwithstanding), and listing during the pandemic, it seems like a high ask.

Greenwich is also still an active listing, no contract yet @ $3.375.

It was mildly interesting to me that Frankel used a Bravo connected realtor to list this property, considering that we've been led to believe that her incestual relationship with Bravo/Andy Cohen was bruised by the way she terminated her latest stint with the show.  I get that he is supposedly very good, but there are dozens if not hundreds of very good realtors in greater NYC. 

Bravo, she just can't quit you.

Note - I would imagine there are affiliations and/or ulterior motives related to these lists, but not for nuttin', I haven't seen Ryan Serhant's name yet.

Totally, and I think going with Serhant was specifically intended as a massive FU to Fredrik.

ETA: Depending on how long it remains on the market and how far down they have to go in price, we'll see who has the last high kick.

She just keeps getting better and better.

From US Magazine:

"This is such an authentic need for me. So why would I not capture this as a great show? I lucked out that this is a pandemic and a time where people are really struggling for employment opportunities,” the businesswoman says in the latest issue of Us Weekly.

https://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/bethenny-frankel-promises-nothing-is-off-limits-in-new-show/

Her show should be boycotted just for that comment alone.

It's all about Bethanny, all the time, to the point it's really unwatchable.

Since I'm on this all-day walk down memory lane:

I love how she says she's not really into double platforms and the gray suede is her one moment of that. And then a minute later she pulls a huge patent Mary Jane double platform out of a box 😆

Here she is pointing at her E.T. toe, in double platforms. With Kyle.

E.T. phone home

ETA: I'm pretty sure those are The Container Store shoe boxes. They are amazing, I buy them by the case and use them to organize everything.

Okay I’m bored out of my mind tonight and I was gardening all day and can barely move, so I’m hate watching The Big Shot.  I’m just shortly into episode 1 and now this makes sense:

“Bethenny Frankel Buys $2.1 Million Greenwich Estate In CT, See Pics Of Inside The RHONY Alum’s Beautiful New Home”

This is the flip house she is currently selling.  It is also where episode 1 of the show is being filmed.  It’s where all the initial contestants are congregating.  I couldn’t understand why she bought this home and was doing a flip. Now I know.  The only other thing I can say so far is that she is looking really rough.  She turning 50 in this episode and I would say her face looks 60.

Why does this famewhore keep saying that she's private? She tells everyone everything and is constantly on social media. Her latest overshare involves how she got engaged. No one needs to know that.

I haven't watched the show yet (don't know if I want to), but from Variety's review and the comments here and in other articles, it sounds like it is an HR nightmare!!  Sounds like more of Bethenny's vitriol and verbal abuse, blanketed under "humor". 

Who would actually want to work in that type of toxic environment?  

There are some slight parallels here between Bethenny and Scott Rudin - who was so verbally abusive to employees/assistants, etc.  Bethenny may want to watch herself and her comments - it wouldn't surprise me if we see a lawsuit filed against her in the future by former employee(s).

"Their divorce, which Frankel calls "the hardest experience of my life," wasn't finalized until March 2021."

"While news of her engagement became public in March, Bernon actually popped the question more than a month before that. "It felt like a strange thing to announce," Frankel says. 

Maybe it felt strange because - call me crazy! - you once again became engaged to marry a man...while still married to another man?

On her new show she claims that she knows nothing about social media and that social media is her Achilles' Heel.  Giiiiiiiiiiiirl you are on social media more than anyone.

I forget what the actual quote was, but she said something very close to "I can be loud, inappropriate, and abrasive" but the person who works for her cannot.  Recipe for disaster much?

Bravo aired RHof NY Season One today - and they aired Three recently. Both with Bethenny.

Three being Beth's last in round one, Kelly B, Scary Island, Jill good bye, et al.....

I'd like to re-visit Season Two. 

Question for anybody: whatever happened to Beth's relationship with Jason #1 (bald Jason). He seemed like a nice guy. Yes, divorced with couple of kids. I recall at the time, Jason had some employer problems due to his appearance on the RHof NY show ? Didn't he get legal on them because they fired him ?

But what broke the Bethenny/Jason #1 relationship up ?

As I recall she was putting the heat on him to move in together and get married and he wasn’t taking the heat. Especially after he got canned for his association with the show. 

I think the apartment she went to look at with Jill was for Jason 1.0 and his children to live in, not for Jason 1.0 and Bethenny. I’m pretty sure that was a filming setup. 

ETA: I think I’m going to have to Peacock season 2 tonight 🍎
