Bethenny Frankel: Naturally Thin


I was heartbroken when the Real Housewives of Orange County ended. What would fill that void on Tuesday nights? Life as I knew it would end without my Bravo fix. Enter the Real Housewives of New York. I was hooked right away, connecting to Bethenny Frankel, her sarcasm and funny one-liners kept me watching week after week. I know tons of people feel the same way.

Bethenny is a natural foods chef who created the Skinny Girl Margarita, a line of healthy muffins called Bethenny Bakes and she wrote Naturally Thin - Unleash Your Skinnygirl™ and free Yourself From a Lifetime of Dieting. Millions of people are reading this book -its on the New York Times Best-Seller list!

Full of common sense ideas, tips and tricks, Naturally Thin outlines how to stay healthy in a way that's easy to follow. Always on the lookout for healthy meals to make, I look forward to cooking the recipes included in the book. Bethenny infuses Naturally Thin with her humor and down- to-earth personality which is probably why the book is selling like crazy. Everyone (except Kelly and you have to watch the show to get that reference) loves Bethenny! You can learn more about the fast growing Bethenny Frankel empire here.


Tell me what its like to be on television all across America every week? What, if any, are the downsides to being so recognizable?

It is wonderful to see so many people "get" me. People are inspired business-wise and losing weight, and I am making a difference. I love being recognized because people are receiving my message. The downside is not being able to go to starbucks in my pyjamas anymore (a new rule I break often).


Were you always interested in cooking and health? What made you decide to pursue Culinary School?

I am a health foodie. I love food and restaurants and dining and I am very concerned with health. Culinary school was meant to be a hobby while I was unfulfilled during an engagement to the wrong person.

What do you like to do in your free time besides those hilarious Jill Zarin imitations?

Truthfully, I like to sleep and do yoga, to test recipes and to love my dog cookie-nothing that cultural or fascinating. I do love to dance though. Hip hop music gets me going. I also love to snuggle.

If you could pass along one tip from your book to all of America, what would it be?

Your diet is a bank account. There are good investments and bad ones. If you have a good relationship with food, you can manage the checks and balances.

I want to learn more about Bethenny Bakes. How do you maintain freshness and flavor in the products when they are sold in stores?

The cookies have no eggs or dairy, so they last longer. The best bet is ordering them on http://www.bethenny.com/


You are a very successful woman. Was there a time when you thought about giving up on your goals? And what kept you on track?

There were many times when I thought getting married and being taken care of by a man was the only way that I could have a nice life, buy nice things, go on vacation and go out to dinner. However, every time I would be with that man, I couldn't sell out. I ultimately had no choice but to make it for myself which was very scary. Its different at 34/5 then for a 25 year old. You wonder how you will survive.


What keeps you humble in the face of so much success?

I know how hard it is to achieve your goals. I know where I came from and nothing was handed to me. I know that you do unto others as you'd have done to me. How could anyone be anything but humble? We are all immortal.

You have so many exciting things happening- including the launch of Skinny Girl Cocktails. What else can we expect from Bethenny Frankel?

I have 4 more books the first of which will launch in jan. There will be more tv for me, a line of skinnygirl candy (starting with stylish lollipops) and a whole skinnygirl brand of cooking utensils, activewear and everything a skinnygirl could want. This is just the beginning.

I just read the entire B Frankel article from top to bottom. One thing I didn't see in there is how much money you were paid by Frankel to write it. It's pretty much verbatum of what her other paid bloggers wrote. I don't care that you work for her but you really should reveal it first.
