Bethenny Frankel’s Divorce Tour continues to rage on at any venue with a camera. The most recent stop on the sanctimonious advice train was Tuesday night at an anniversary event for Stanton Social, a restaurant on the lower east side of NYC.
In case you have forgotten, Tuesday was when the earth briefly paused rotation and Mercury fell a bit deeper into retrograde over the news that Brad and Angelina had split up. So many actual celebrities and some housewives were asked their thoughts on the split.
Apparently, E! News an affiliate of NBCu which also owns Bravo was instructed by someone to go to the restaurant party and ask Bethenny and Jules Wainstein, who was also in attendance, their thoughts on the demise of Brangelina.
For whatever reason, Bethenny is really pushing her divorce story. I can only suppose that we will be seeing another book coming from her where she condescendingly counsels women everywhere on how to navigate divorce. What is it with this vile woman who sucks at relationships with her parents, her husband, her cast mates, and seemingly has no actual friends that are not paid employees writing a book on relationships? What idiot buys these books? It appears there are people willing to do it so the “How Not To Guide To Divorce” has got to be coming soon.
So some NBCu employee either asked about life after divorce because they were the last breathing human over age four not to have heard of the national tragedy, or Bethenny just randomly started spouting off about it.
“It feels really different,” Bethenny bemoaned to E!. “I had a tortuous experience and I finally realized I could help other women be strong and independent. Life feels much more balanced, much freer. Really, it was torment, so it feels much, much better. It could not feel worse. It could only get better.”
Yes, we’ve heard. You had the worst divorce in the world and it was all Jason’s fault. You were sweet as pie the whole time and he was just a horrible person. So, Praise be to JESUS, our long, arduous trials are over, y’all. Bethenny Frankel, the housewife most likely to be voted Most Likely To Abuse Her Female Castmates is going to help us all be strong and independent. Aren’t we just the luckiest morons alive to have this kind, generous woman extend a hand to us, the weak and dependent masses?
So E! asked both Jules and Bethenny for advice for Brangelina since they are both familiar with divorce “Keep your mouth shut. When you have young kids, privacy is really important.” Sound advice.
But Bethenny makes it all about Bethenny, “Any breakup is sad, especially when there are kids involved. I don’t give unsolicited advice and no one sucks at relationships more than I do, so I’m sure Brad and Angelina will be much better off than I was.”
What is funnier, that Bethenny claims she doesn’t give advice? Or that she took the moment to remind us one more time that her divorce was the worst out of anyone in the whole world. Even one where there are six children involved and the mother has filed for full custody?
Then yesterday, Page Six received an anonymous tip (lol) that Bethenny had to leave the restaurant where she was having dinner with Carole and Adam to rush home because there was a bomb threat in her building. Normally, I would not suggest running toward a building under a bomb threat, but in this case…
And the bomb threat as a false alarm.
Sigh… What is up with the soul sucking need for attention of any sort from some people?
P.S. I prematurely hit PUBLISH on this post before adding the most interesting part of the story. The Stanton Social restaurant served a huge tasting menu by multiple chefs. Of course neither Bethenny or Jules actually eat food, but I think Jules probably had no problem refraining from this menu item, “Chef Neill Howell’s Foie Gras Roulade with Onion Marmalade and Roasted Pistachios.” Is roasted pistachios the new clambake?
