What the heck is going on with Bethenny Frankel? The former Real Housewives has scored some major cash with her “Skinnygirl Margarita” brand. Launched 18 months ago with booze veteran David Kanbar, while she was still co-starring in The Real Housewives of New York City, has scored some major moola with husband, Jason Hoppy.
Today, it was announced Bethenny Frankel a cool Scorpio girl, was paid $120 million from Beam Global. They were so impressed by her sales growth, they had to get a piece of our Bravo girl. In fact, it’s a spirits industry record for a brand founded by a single celebrity — for Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl spirits brand. We are so proud of our girl.
Reality TV mag reports: “Could they have developed this cocktail on their own? Absolutely. The recipe is not the hard part. They paid for the marketing,” spirits writer and consultant Jack Robertiello told The Reporter, noting Frankel signed a multi-year agreement to remain closely involved with the brand despite the sale.
“No one knows the brand better than Bethenny, and we don’t want to break something we just bought,” Beam Global executive Pryce Greenow told The Reporter. “Plus, she gives us access to consumer feedback with just one tweet that would take us three months of focus groups to compile.” In addition, Beam Global views Skinnygirl — which it plans to expand to other drinks, including a white sangria — as a key entry into a large, new sub-category of convenient, low-calorie cocktails targeted at health-conscious women.
Astrologically, Bethenny Frankel born under the sign of Scorpio, has hit the cosmic jackpot. She is a force to be reckowned with, combined with her pratical Moon in Capricorn, she understands business. Now that she has more money then God, will Bethenny finally be able to enjoy her life with her husband Jason Hoppy and adorable daughter Bryn? What other astrology predictions do we have for her?
In late 2012, Saturn will hit Scorpio and will collide with Bethenny’s star sign. This will force her to slow down, most likely she will quit her Bravo reality show in 2013, and possibly have another baby. Astrochicks predicts during this period, she may have issues with her mom that will need to be addressed. Pandora’s Box will be opened and Bethenny Frankel will need to deal with the emotional aftermath. Of course with Jason Hoppy by her side, she can overcome any personal problem with her supportive husband. Wishing her the best. I wonder if she will finally buy a monster mansion in Malibu? Stay tuned.
Real Housewives of New York, wow what a season. The girls had another round of cat fights, with Kelly Bensimon on one side and the other housewives on the other. I think the problem is Kelly Bensimon can dish it out but she just can’t take it.
In all fairness, Bethenny Frankel a Scorpio girl, can be hard to handle and Ramona is a SUPER drama queen. The only semi-normal housewives are Sonja, Alex, and Countess Luann. Who will Bravo invite back next year? According to rumors, interviews, and anything else Astrochicks could get their hot little hands on, I think both Bethenny and Kelly will NOT return next year.
Jill Zarin who’s now the odd girl out, Bravo’s going to need to invite two new housewives to throw under the bus. Although watching the Real Houswives of New York is fun, unfortunately some fans take it a little too far and have started sending threatening mail to Jill Zarin. Not cool and scary.
Zarin addressed the “threatening mail” in a Saturday post to her Facebook account. “We are being harassed and threatened by a family from Chicago and Alabama. We have contacted authorities. I will block anyone who is linked to them per postal service law enforcement until they finish investigation,” she wrote. “This is a serious crime and all evidence has been handed over. If you are involved in anyway… I suggest you stop. Enough is enough. It is NOT funny or a joke.” Hopefully they will catch the nut bags that are bothering her family.
In the end, Astrochicks found the Reunion show to be quite amusing. The girls constantly contradict themselves, with Countess Luann and Sonja Morgan probably being the most honest about who they really are. Up next is Real Housewives of Washington DC and Atlanta. Let the games begin.
The Bravo premiere of Bethenny Frankel’s new reality show last week, was the highest debuting program in Bravo history. Everything the Scorpio Real Housewife touches seems to turn to gold. Has Bethenny’s success made Kelly Benismon crazy jealous, to the point of her becoming obsessed?
I’m sure on Kelly’s part, our stubborn Taurus girl thought she was the prettiest and smartest on the show. After all, she’s a former model and posed in Playboy. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I definitely think Bethenny Frankel’s Scorpio humor has given her a leg up on the rest of the girls. What does Bethenny think about her battle with Kelly?
She says, “I really feel badly that she’s trying to claw her way out of it with this ‘bullying’ thing. I honestly don’t think this is the right place for her to be on television. I think she can’t resist being on the show, but it’s really not healthy for her. Frankly, if I’m not on the show again, that will make it better for her because me being on the show again is certainly not good for her health. But I’ve never seen anything like it — and I really did grow up in a crazy town. I mean, it gives her a lot of attention, but I would never want that kind of attention. I don’t think it’s healthy.”
Who will be returning in next seasons “Real Housewives of New York” is still up in the air. No one has been asked back yet but rumor is Kelly Bensimon is out. Bethenny Frankel is uncertain if she really needs two shows. Plus, she said in a recent interview she will have Ramona and Alex make guest appearances on her new show. If Bethenny is definitely out, Bravo will need to find another acid tongue housewife to replace her. She’s too funny!
Bethenny Frankel dished the dirt this week on the “Real Housewives Reunion” show and on “Bethenny Getting Married.” Looking exhausted from all that cat fighting, she seems to be relieved to have her own show and not have to deal with Kelly Bensimon anymore. Will she return to Real Housewives of New York next season? Not if Kelly Bensimon’s on it.
What accomplishment Bethenny is most proud of is her baby girl, Bryn, with her sexy hubby Jason Hoppy. She says, “I couldn’t love anything more! Bryn is a gem, the sweetest baby, and the greatest gift of my life. I love every minute of it — dark circles and all. I bow to all the breast-feeding mothers! I can do a lot of things, but breast-feeding is one of the greatest challenges.”
Bryn, born on May 8th, is a little Taurus girl. Taurus babies are usually quiet and calm but definitely stubborn. I imagine this little girl will be able to wrap Mommy and Daddy around her little finger. Charming and affectionate, she will be super creative and Bethenny might have a little actress on her hands.
For the Real Housewives of New York, I will miss Bethenny Frankel’s commentary about the other housewives. If she didn’t have her own reality show, she should do stand up comedy. Bethenny a Scorpio, has quite a few one liners that could stop anyone dead in their tracks.
Wishing Jason, Bryn and her lots of happiness.
Real Housewives of New York went another round in their cocktail cat fight. In the Reunion show, the girls let it all hang out and continued the bitch fest with Kelly Bensimon and Bethenny Frankel. All looking super fab, they must have hit the plastic surgeons office for a little nip tuck or a botox shot.
Green with envy, Kelly Bensimon is so jealous of Bethenny Frankel and is relentless with her attacks. Of course, Kelly Bensimon tried flip the script and accuse the other four Real Housewives of bullying her. She’s taken it so seriously she even posted a “public service announcement” on You Tube. In the PSA she says, “Four against one is never okay,” she says, a curious smirk on her face. “Whether you’re a 4-year-old or a 10-year-old or a 40-year-old woman, being bullied or ganged up on is never okay.” Can you smell the PR desperation in the air? OMG! Give it up Kelly.
Lets face it, these girls don’t really like each other too much. They are forced to be on a show together and the battle of egos are bound to take center stage. They are each paid about $30k per episode, which equals to about $400k per year. Not too shabby.
Will Kelly Bensimon return next season? Lets hope not. A Taurus girl she’s definitely stubborn, she appears to be very insecure on the show. Or maybe she’s just one of those girls who gets along better with men versus women. Rumor is Bravo is not renewing her contract.
Bethenny Frankel a Scorpio girl will probably always clash with Kelly Bensimon. Either way, she’s the queen of Real Housewives with her own TV show, books, DVD’s, etc.
We wish them both the best.
Omarosa and Bethenny Frankel are like two birds of the same feather, they both never know when to shut up. Unfortunately for Bethenny, she may have said too much about Omarosa, on her recent appearance on the View. Whatever Bethenny said, it definitely pushed Omarosa’s buttons.
Omarosa, who threw a tizzy fit said the following, ” Today she (Bethenny) tried to act like her show was superior to my new show and her book was superior to my book or her career was superior, I was surprised that she went there with me!! She got her start or the Apprentice just like me. She is on a NBC show just like I was. She is making a living in the world of reality just like me.”
Of course, Omarosa on a roll, just kept on talking. She said, “I never once said a bad word about her or all of the rumors swirling around about Jason and his sexuality. EVERYONE knows he’s gay but we never said anything, because she was HAPPY.” Wow, Omarosa you sure are one nasty girl!
Omarosa an Aquarius, can be one ice princess. It appears that Omarosa thinks she’s smarter and prettier than Bethenny Frankel. Her comment about Bethenny’s husband Jason was uncalled for. It’s their marriage and what goes on behind closed doors is Bethenny and Jason’s business. The couple seem very much in love and just had a beautiful baby girl.
Bethenny Frankel a Scorpio, will definitely get the last word over Omarosa. You don’t want to cross this little sister. Don’t worry Bethenny, it sounds like Omarosa is just jealous and wished she was a Real Housewife or Getting Married. Team Bethenny all the way!
