'Real Housewives' Tipsy Girl Battles Rage Between Bethenny And Sonja

Amy Feinstein

It's hard to know whether Bethenny Frankel of Skinnygirl fame feels more offended or just annoyed by Real Housewives cast mate Sonja Morgan's latest project, Tipsy Girl, but it looks like Morgan got Frankel's attention, and now Morgan should figure that Frankel will take her down, and allow this project to go the way of the toaster oven.

According to the Inquisitr,Frankel just sees Morgan and her Prosecco brand Tipsy Girl as another attempt for Morgan to grasp at something she believes will bring her attention, and perhaps an income (not to mention something for her "interns" to do). When Frankel caught wind of Morgan's latest project, she promptly blocked her in business by trademarking several of the names around the words "tipsy" and "tipsy girl" which would make it harder for Morgan to rip off Frankel's business name, and prevent anyone from thinking that Tipsy Girl Prosecco has anything to do with Frankel's Skinnygirl brand.

"The Tipsy Girl scandal is kind of great, because it markets Skinnygirl cocktails and the success of my brand while there's no threat, because there is no Tipsy Girl product. It's kind of like a lay-up for me."

Frankel says that this is the way that Morgan operates, but her businesses never come to fruition. She claims that Morgan is not a serious business person.

"It's a personal insult and I don't want anything to do with you."

"You inspire me, you mentor me. I look up to you. If I could have anything like you, I would love that."

Do you think that Bethenny Frankel is right to be annoyed about the Skinnygirl/Tipsy Girl conflict?
