When Bethenny Frankel hopped onto television screens as a member of the first cast of "Real Housewives of New York City" in 2008, nobody could have imagined that she’d inevitably become a household name.
The 38-year-old mogul built the Skinnygirl empire, which now includes health snacks from her Skinnygirl Daily and an entire cocktail collection, which boasts more than just margaritas.
What’s more? She’s snagged herself her own daytime talk show, which hits screens this Fall.
Frankel has lived most of her adult life in the public eye, but the brunette bombshell shared a couple little known fun facts about her personal life at a recent event in New York City. Check them out!
Fun Fact #1: She’s a bit of a shoe fanatic! “I do have a lot of shoes (more than 100, her assistant says) and I do wear heels a lot. I try to look kinda cute when I leave the house. But having a child and pushing that stroller – you feel like an idiot!”
Fun Fact # 2: Frankel says she’s tried almost every crazy fad diet under the sun, including the Atkins Diet and several cleanses, which she explains didn’t sit well with her. “I think these crazy diets are stupid. If you want cake on Tuesday morning, you should have cake. But then have a salad for lunch. Your diet is your bank account.”
Fun Fact #3: The hot mom says her daughter, Bryn, who will be 3 next month, eats off the regular menu when they eat out. “I don’t let Bryn eat off the kid’s menu. It’s all chicken fingers and macaroni and cheese.”
Fun Fact #4: “I don’t work out that often, maybe two or three times a week, but I try to be consistent about it. Women are very extreme and obsessive about working out and eating. I think you should do what you can, when you can.”
Fun Fact #5: When she does have time to take classes, the petite powerhouse says she doesn’t mind trying new workouts like a stiletto boot camp. “I love that it feels sexy and it was fun. I think it’s good for women to feel good about themselves, feel sexy, try something different, laugh a little bit. And it feels kinda slutty – in a good way!”
Fun Fact #6: Frankel thinks some of the hottest bodies in Hollywood belong to women who have killer curves. “Someone like Sofia Vergara, who is so voluptuous. I think it’s wonderful that there are these nice juicy bodies that are in right now. I feel like that’s what a women looks like.”
