Bethenny Frankel Exploiting Divorce Rumors For Talk Show Ratings


Bethenny Frankel has decided that she is not going to talk about the divorce rumors that are so loud that people almost can't hear themselves think. Well, she has decided she is not going to talk about them for the next six weeks. When will she talk about them? On her new talk show which airs beginning in about six weeks. At that point she will talk about them. What kind of person exploits their potential divorce for ratings? She does not owe me or you or anyone an explanation about her divorce or potential divorce. It is her business. But, it does seem real skeezy to not talk about it except when she is getting paid for it. But, hey this is Bethenny we are talking about here.

I like both Bethenny and Jason, but neither are innocent. He likes to start shit with her, and she doesn't know when to back down.

at what point was it not made clear Bethanny will do anything and use anyone to stay famous and get fat paychecks?

Just yesterday, I read that she sold her former company Skinny Girl for a cool $125 million. I usually don't keep up with much reality tv so I had no idea. How rich do some people have to get before they feel they can 'afford' to start acting a bit classy? smh

She doesn't look good in this photo. Oh, I have an idea. Instead of exposing all of her personal life events for cash, she could try auditioning for actual roles in scripted shows like NeNe has.

So, where might she start? Well, based on her face in this photo, Once Upon a Time could probably cast her as a troll or some other type of creature. And she could also appear on Grimm without them having to go heavy on the makeup.

Stop exploiting your personal life, Bethenny. Do it for your child.

At some point Enty you may need to ask yourself a very important question---do any of my regular readers really give a fuck what this fame whore does? If the answer is a resounding NO then move on and stop posting about this annoying creature.

Jason is probably starting shit w her due to the fact that he's living a lie (hiding his gaiety).

annabella said...

I cannot stomach any of these 'reality' stars. just attention whores who will, literally, do anything to get in the spotlight.

God DAMN is that woman ugly!

I have a different take. She didn't start those rumors (did she?) and therefore why should Kneepads or anyone else get the readership bonanza? Since she has a talk show coming up, why shouldn't she take advantage of it?

I don't know why I like these two together but I do--still, I think they are completely and totally dysfunctional. He is way overattached to the parents, she operates on the premise that the best defense is a good offense. I agree that he starts stuff with her. Plus, what guy his age doesn't know what he wants to do with his life? (Don't answer that) That little girl is very sweet and clearly loved by both. Hope they hang together and work out their issus--I give her props for trying; him, not so much. It's not like he didn't know who she was.

What kind of person? The kind that's about a month into taping her show, and low and behold Jason, who is keeping a low profile, is actually in town with the baby and they are all living together....and happily. Could be an act, bug in person it seems pretty real.

She's been trying to get famous for a long long long time. It's not going to end until everyone else decides to stop caring and giving her the publicity and attention she so desperately desires. Her personality is incredibly abrasive. At some point you need to just chill and she is never like that I don't think. Speaking as a snark queen myself, I would have slit my wrists by now if I was a 10th of the crazy aggressive she is on a hourly basis.

Here are some interesting articles about Frankel. It seems she has problems with the truth:http://www.jewishjournal.com/keepingitreal/item/the_backpedalling_of_bethenny_frankel_20120326/

Also, she used her miscarriage as a publicity stunt.

I think her show starts the second week of June, not 6 weeks--I think it starts June 11. I wonder if she gets Ellen's slot during the summer vacation time? If so that's really a good place for her.

I now believe this whole thing is just fodder to get people talking about her tv shows. I think Jason is part of it and he's on the payroll to keep her in the press.

I don't understand why anyone cares about this woman. She's pretty scary-looking, too. Yikes.

I agree with everything you said. Ya know....this is my problem with the viewing public. We take jabs at people like The KarTRASHians for havjng a scripted, errrr FAKE, reality show. Yet her is Frankel and Hoppy showing the good, the bad, and the ugly and people STILL talk shit. Despite how you like or dislike her, this is probably the most authentic reality show that has ever aired. I do believe her motivations were to gain fame, start up her business, and the regular attention whoring reasons. But I also think ahe thought it was possible to do all of that with her balls to the wall, letting it all hang out and showing these reality stars what a REALITY show is really like. I commend her for that.

Unknown, thanks for speaking up for all of us. It's so much easier not to have to have an opinion of our own.

Angel, since when does wealth have anything to do with class? :)

Unknown said...

I don't get it enty what is your beef with her? If I had a talk show coming out for a 6 week test and all people were talking about was my impending divorce, hell yes I would wait to talk about it on my show...what I am going to go on Pierce Morgan and let him have the ratings? It is a smart decisions, espcially if it is a non issue. People have been having them divorced since they got married...I mean did Oprah go on other shows to talk about her shit? Nope. All Oprah..She seems pretty smart and savvy to have made all that money and now get a talk show with Ellen. Ellen is no dummy I think she knows a good thing when she sees it. Fuck get off her labia.

liteNOTSObrite said...

Amen!

Putaforkinme said...

Her square face bugs me.

califblondy said...

Still like her, still like him, still like them, and hope like hell they keep it together.

BUT, if she pulls a Kim K. and it's all a big sham, she's dead to me, dead I tell ya.

Casual Observer said...

She makes no bones about the fact that she is ambitious, and I admire her for that.

She is pushy and aggressive and he is passive aggressive and they butts heads a lot, but I still like them. And Bryn is adorable.

I feel like I "get" her.

angel said...

lol Mooshki, well there you go :)

You're easily impressed if you can honestly classify anything about this vapid woman's existence as commendable. Instead of treating narcissism as the Type II personality disorder that it is, people have enabled an industry to develop and enrich these walking, talking disease-states. That is all.

Eat a fat dick. "the"....you're a hateful weirdo.
