What a difference a year makes!
Bethenny Frankel was once spitting nails at her Real Housewives of New York co-star, Sonja Morgan — and now she is toasting to her success.
A year ago, the reality stars were sparring over boozy products with similar names — but now Bethenny has moved on, supporting her friend last Thursday, at a pop up Tipsy Girl launch. The Skinnygirl mogul was even spotted carrying a champagne flute of Tipsy Girl prosecco, as she cheered her reality pal at the opening of the New York City pop-up shop.

Bethenny was seen chatting with cast mate Luann de Lesseps — or rather, Mrs. Thomas D’Agostino. Luann married Tom on December 31st, but Bethenny was not invited to the wedding. Luann took her Sonja-love to the next level — wearing a red jumpsuit from the woman of the hour’s clothing line. The entire cast of the show attended to support Sonja, including cast newbie, Tinsley Mortimer. Ramona Singer and her daughter Avery smiled for the cameras, the 22-year-old also rocking a Sonja original.

Fans of the reality hit will remember that Bethenny skewered Sonja for marketing under the Tipsy Girl moniker, verbally annihilating her on camera. She brought Sonja to tears — labeling her brand a “cheater,” and her friend a “fraud.” She even took steps to trademark the name “TipsyGirl,” but Sonja’s business partner, Peter Guimaraes, beat her to the punch. Bethenny snarked about Sonja’s projects, noting a string of failures — but it soon became obvious that in this case, she was wrong. Bethenny seems to have warmed up to the idea of a little friendly competition.
Filming for the ninth season of The Real Housewives of New York is underway.
