Lady A Day 042: Bethenny Frankel

Consummate New Yorker.  Natural foods chef.  Reality television star.  Reigning Queen of Snark.  Bethenny Frankel. I have quite the love/hate relationship with reality television, but try as I might I cannot give up The Real Housewives of NYC, and Bethenny Frankel is the reason.  Even in this season of batshit crazy, completely mortifying behavior from the entire cast, I cling to Bethenny’s scenes like they’re a lifeboat in the shitstorm.  She has the perfect one-liner for every conversation and she can always be counted on to take it there.  I admit I miss her back-and-forth dialogue with Jill Zarin, but her blossoming relationship with fellow housewife Alex presents so many opportunities for the funny.  Bethenny effortlessly shoots a perfectly-timed zinger and poor Alex never seems to know what hit her.

Alex: My husband is texting me about whether he should wear dark or light-colored boots.
Bethenny: Tell him he’s in the midst of a deep homosexual panic.

From her shotgun wedding and unplanned motherhood, to her PETA-posing and Skinny Girl empire-building, to her twitter obsession with her dog Cookie, Bethenny’s life seems both insane and totally grounded. Her personality is larger-than-life, but she still deals with the nitty-gritty of family and friendships and self-doubt like anybody else. I heart Bethenny Frankel all the way from her manicured toes to her big fake boobies to her ridiculous sunhats.
