Bethenny Frankel is a media whore. I really don’t think there is anything wrong with that. There are a lot of people who want to be in the entertainment industry. I used to dabble in it in my late teens and early twenties. I couldn’t handle all of the waiting around and pancake makeup. It was fun to experience but certainly not something I would have considered as a career. If I were forced to be in the industry, I’d want to be a casting director. Mostly because bad casting can really irritate me. But Bethenny has been trying to get and stay in front of cameras for decades. And even now that she is a mother, and very rich, she can’t seem to shake the bug.
So Bethenny Frankel is returning to RHONY.
“I’m genuinely excited, with a side of slightly nervous, for my return to The Real Housewives of New York City,” she said in a statement. “Bravo has always been the place on television where I have the freedom to be unfiltered, honest and inappropriate, with an audience who has been with me from the beginning. I can’t wait to see what this next chapter brings for all of us. Watch what happens!”
Andy Cohen is also thrilled with her return. “Bethenny is one of the most popular Housewives in the history of the franchise, and I couldn’t be more excited she is coming home to Bravo!,” he says.
Well, well, well, it seems Bethenny Frankel changed her tune and decided to come to a fair agreement with Jason Hoppy over custody of their four year old daughter, Bryn. Here is what happened. Last Wednesday, Bethenny went to court and testified that Jason was a horrible person and called him “white trash” and it was very, very, ugly. There was a lot of media coverage and a lot of public backlash. TV talk show hosts and social media were all questioning why neither parent had the records sealed to keep Bryn from being able to later read about the horrible things Bethenny said about the father of her child. New York based Internet media have been constantly referring to Bethenny as a “failed talk show host” rather than a successful business woman. Bethenny was presented in a very negative way.

Now that Bethenny has finished her talk show, it seems she finally has time to begin the formal divorce proceedings. According to the New York Daily News, yesterday was the first day of testimony and Bethenny took the stand. She wasted no time in going all in on her soon to be ex-husband Jason Hoppy. Bethenny testified that she wrote Jason a letter telling him that she wanted a divorce and that once he read it he She said her life became “brutal, horrendous, and excruciating.” Um, who writes a letter to the husband that you live with asking for a divorce rather than just talking to him face to face?
Bethenny cried on the stand as she recounted numerous mistreatments by Jason during the separation. Bethenny testified that Jason told her, “If you don’t want to be with me and you’re ending this marriage, I want nothing to do with you ever again. I’m going to destroy you. You’re already losing fans. I’m going to ruin you.” Continue reading
