Season after season we hear complaints from the RHONY that they have to go to all of Bethenny’s promotions for SkinnyGirl on the show but she never supports them in their endeavors. This season for example, you may not have heard but Carole ran a marathon. And Bethenny was too busy to be bothered to stand out in the rain for an hour to watch her friend walk down the street. Instead, since it was her birthday, she was out of town.
And then last night apparently Ramona had an event for her skincare line. Ramona’s been a bitch to Bethenny all season, so one would think that would be enough reason not to attend. But as it turns out, Ramona doesn’t have a skincare line. Just like Nene doesn’t have a clothing store. Ramona is “the face” of a skincare line. She’s paid to advertise the product. Just like that time when she “owned a sports bar” or all the other pretend businesses she had.
I for one am thrilled that Bethenny is tired of pretending like these housewives fake businesses is the same thing as actually running a business. If you have a cosmetics business you would be at the factory, in an office working on tax information for the tax attorney, filing copyrights, hiring employees. You would be WORKING.
The only issue I have with Bethenny’s stance is if she is just going to call out Ramona or is she going to admit that Sonja’s Target overstock that she sells on her site is not a “fashion line.” These fake storylines need to stop and we need to know what is really going on in their lives. As they say on RHOP about Karen, if we don’t know what is going on, how can we support (or mock) them.
What do you think about Bethenny calling out Ramona?
