If you’re curious about the motivation behind Ellen DeGeneres’ on-air kiss-ass session with Bethenny Frankel, wonder no more! Ellen is the executive producer behind Bethenny’s new daytime talk show. In case you missed it, Bethenny has made the press rounds bashing her ex in a bid to save face a midst the breakdown of her ‘Bethenny Ever After’ enterprise. Though I understand the PR move, I’m generally opposed to a using the media for a vitriolic post-nuptial throw-down. Watch the trailer for her new show below.
Only Bethenny Frankel would disclose that it takes 18 months to desire sex again after childbirth, and only Chelsea Handler would take a sip of her guest’s drink, make a sour face, and insult it. Thank God they are giving Bethenny her own show. She deserves it. Watch below after the jump. Continue reading “Bethenny Frankel on Chelsea Lately — Best Guest Ever”
When Kim Kardashian responded to Jon Hamm’s comment calling her “stupid,” I thought, “Wow. She’s not as dumb as I thought.” In an interview with Elle UK Hamm said, “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f—ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.” In response, Kardashian said, “Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, ‘stupid,’ is in my opinion careless. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another.” To be fair, I never actually thought Kim Kardashian was stupid. She’s one of the only reality stars (aside from Bethenny Frankel) to launch a multi-million dollar empire, and you never see her showing her crotch while stepping out of a car (yes, my standards are low). And furthermore, we don’t seem to mind when our friends get their foot in the door because of connections, yet we point fingers at famous people who do the same. It’s not what gets your foot in the door — it’s what you do once you’re there that’s important.
Bethenny Frankel co-hosted ‘The View’ today, and the producers might want to consider giving her a permanent spot. She seemed to be the only normal person on the panel, often stating the obvious points that the other yentas consistently miss. Watch her very funny conversation with Laura Ingraham about the competition for baby tutors.
