Unless you’ve never seen Bravo (in which case, WHAT do you talk to your friends about?), you know who Bethenny Frankel is. The quick-witted, driven, hilariously funny woman who worked her ass off to turn Skinnygirl into an empire.
To steal a phrase from Wendy Williams, Bethenny is my “friend in my head.” I’ve been following her career from Martha Stewart’s The Apprentice, to RHONY to Bethenny, Getting Married? and Bethenny, Ever After and even watched that horrifyingly bad Skating With The Stars because she was on it.
During the seemingly endless lull between seasons, I kept lamenting that there wasn’t enough Bethenny in my daily life. Well, that ends September 9th with the debut of bethenny, her weekday talk show. I.CAN.NOT.WAIT!!
The clip below is one of the many reasons I’m a Bethenny fan. She’s fearless, letting people to see her in her natural state and experimenting with beauty, not knowing how it will turn out. Is her hair perfect in the end? No, but it’s also not some contrived segment where, in the end, her hair looks red carpet ready in a way we can never recreate. It’s real, it’s honest, it’s Bethenny. Her site is filled with gems like this.
Even better news, she’s coming to Cleveland, August 26th, as part of her Calling All My Girls Tour. She’s hitting nine cities leading up to the premiere, hosting exclusive fan events in each one. You have to tune in to your local affiliate to get tickets so head on over to Bethenny.com for all the details.
I really hope I get to meet her. Even though August 26th is the boyfriend’s birthday, he told me I should go (if I get a ticket) because he knows how much I adore Bethenny. Is he the best, or what??
