I taped GMA this morning to cover Bethenny’s appearance and the first few minutes were terrifying. Apparently, seven states are burning to the ground, some idiot was arrested for a bomb plot in NYC, and we are all going to die of global warming this week (aka it’s summer) and a few other scary murderous stories. But what they have been promoting continuously is the Bethenny interview. It is scary to me that Bethenny Frankel having female troubles is the big reason that people keep watching all morning. And believe me, these folks understand their ratings and a housewife, brings the rating. ON A MORNING NEWS SHOW. It’s terrifying how dumbed down we all are.
So on to Bethenny’s reproductive organs…
It’s an exclusive y’all! Oh, shocker. It’s fibroids. Wait! Did we know that Bethenny had a miscarriage “a couple years ago”???? Whose baby was that? Now she seems to be saying that the reason she was such a bitch on this season is because of her fibroids. I may actually give her a pass on that. Anytime your female plumbing isn’t working at an optimal level, you really do have no patience for anything.
Bethenny says she was in the hospital for three day for the surgery and there was a six week recovery. Is that normal? I’m sure plenty of you have had the surgery. Do tell (about the recovery, we don’t need a lot of details here, the males tend to go pale and get lightheaded over such discussions). I mean I’ve known people with heart bypass surgeries that didn’t seem to have that long of a recovery.
And there is her product promotion.
Wait, she had the surgery on May 20th? Aren’t we just into January on the show? And May 20th was just four weeks ago. Should she still be recovering according to her six week plan? Oh wait, she drank a lot of green juices. Guess who sells green juices? Did you guess SkinnyGirl? Because that apparently cuts your recovery time in half!
She had the surgeon take photos of the fibroids they removed. I dare not check her Instagram. She lost weight from the surgery and “of course everyone has commented on that.”
Bethenny says she is happier than she has been in her entire life. She has had a difficult road in many ways, she is so blessed with her daughter and her career but she’s had a difficult road in other ways.
Bethenny says this is the best season ever and something we will never forget happens at the end of the season. Her official engagement announcement perhaps? She has been flashing a ring in SnapChat this week. Coincidentally, you can tune it to Bravo tonight to see Bethenny bleed out in the middle of a Home Goods store!
I’ve been thinking all along that her medical scare would make the Mexico trip not happen. This pretty much confirms it and Lara introduced the segment saying that her health scare “caused her to drop out of RHONY filming early this season.” So um, YAY for that. But I think what really happened is we get a lot of death bed scenes a la Yolanda Foster probably in one of her many white MAZEL robes.
