Bethenny Frankel: “I Was Frustrated Beyond the Brink”

The Real Housewives of New York” star, Bethenny Frankel, is bringing the drama, clashing with most of the cast… at home and on vacation.  She took to her blog to further explain herself, and kicks off the fun by addressing the dragged on tussle with Kristen Taekman

“If Kristen had something she wanted to discuss with me or ask me, there is a way to do it. Starting with a negative tone certainly doesn’t motivate me to have a conversation. Kristen is a beautiful and fashionable girl who cares a lot about looking pretty, and no doubt she knows a lot more than I do about nail polish. I wish her all the luck and success in the world. I am no expert in anything. I just go by my personal experience and my gut.”

She shares her thoughts about mad scramble for bedrooms, upon the group’s arrival at the rental house, in Turks and Caicos.

“I was shocked and had forgotten how getting to a rental house is akin to the running of the bulls in Pamplona. Ramona felt that she and Sonja had some seniority or special privilege and that they deserved first choice of the rooms. It turned me off a little bit. We are all beyond grown women, and no one is more entitled than anyone else to a certain kind of room. None of us besides those two even cared; the principle really got to us.”

Bethenny moved on to her brief clash with Heather, and Heather’s testy  reaction to her business advice.

“There was a tiny moment with me talking to Heather about her brand. Perhaps this is to lay the groundwork for me being a know-it-all, but I think she has talent and is a great fashion designer. I was merely suggesting that she really focus on fitness, because there is a lot of opportunity there. She seemed to take offense to that. Everyone is a little sensitive and touchy.”

Bethenny hits the main point, addressing the scream-fest, shared between  she and Sonja.

“It really is me at this point, because I don’t need to insert myself into Sonja’s life. I’m just trying to be constructive, because she seems to have alienated the other women at this point.”

“I understand Sonja feeling very paranoid and not trusting of this group. I genuinely want the best for her and for her to succeed in all areas of life.”

“It is not my job to fix anyone, and I’m not Dr. Drew. I care about and genuinely like Sonja, and I was trying to break in and make some sense of the situation. I had no right to tell her or anyone to shut the f— up. I was frustrated beyond the brink. In watching this episode, I see how intense I can be. If you knew the half of what was going on with me personally, you might understand.”

Evidently, we are never going to be enlightened as to to what specifically is “going on” with Bethenny.  Still, someone needed to screech some sense into loopy Sonja. Bethenny is the only one with the guts and the stamina to take it on, so I say, you GO girl!
