Bethenny Frankel wasn’t planning on being attacked on her birthday, but that’s exactly what happened. While filming The Real Housewives of New York, Frankel decided to spend her birthday going to Dorinda Medley’s bra party. And near the end of the party, Dorinda’s boyfriend, John, decided to show up. Sadly, he accused Frankel of stealing a business idea from his friend, who founded Skinny Cow. In addition, he accused her of being single because she can’t hold a relationship.
According to a new tweet, Bethenny Frankel is now setting the record straight and she reveals that her business is doing quite well, even though she was accused of stealing the name and possibly the inspiration behind Skinny Cow. On Twitter, Frankel was more than eager to reveal that her products are selling out everywhere, and that people can get her booze and snacks on Amazon.
“We receive so many product requests [at Skinnygirl] but know that what is sold out in stores is on Amazon,” Frankel revealed about her business on Twitter, adding later to a compliment, “Thank you. The wines are great. The brand is on fire & sells out. Handling.”
John started accusing Bethenny of stealing the name “Skinnygirl” from his friend, who launched “Skinny Cow.” Not only is Skinnygirl one name on all of her business products, but Skinny Cow was also sold to Nestle — hence making it a successful venture for John’s friend. It sounds like John just wanted to see what would hurt her, and then hurl accusations at her to see what would get her to react.
Before he showed up at the party, he told Dorinda Medley that he didn’t want any of the girls — especially Bethenny Frankel — trash talking him. And as soon as he said it, Dorinda quickly removed him from the speaker phone. Sadly, Bethenny heard what he said and she was ready to confront him when he arrived at the party.
In her blog for The Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny Frankel revealed that she was shocked and had no words for the accusations that were coming her way. It was clear to her that John just wanted to hurt her, as he brought up the Skinnygirl/Skinny Cow discussion almost immediately. Bethenny was quick with a response, and she clearly knew what she was talking about.
“I mean that was pure insanity. Need I explain it? I think it spoke for itself. I call ’em like I see ’em. I grew up in a crazy world, and let’s just say I get a sense about these things. I really am speechless. I feel badly for Dorinda or a multitude of reasons. I think what John said about Ramona was below the belt, and I think Jules made it crystal clear that I started it. But, to be clear, if what I said to Dorinda brought out that beast, then I am glad. It vindicated us for our sixth sense. Honestly, I have no words. Just trust me when I say it keeps getting better, and next week is challenging for me,” Bethenny Frankel revealed in her blog for The Real Housewives of New York.
Frankel gets to confront John about the bra party drama on Wednesday’s episode of the show. He goes to the Hamptons with Dorinda, and he gets a chance to apologize to her. Sadly, it sounds like he may be stuck in his stubborn ways.
