We all know Bethenny had a tough childhood and now a rough exterior (most likely because of her past.) Although the show scraped the surface of her relationship between her and her mother, we really haven’t seen how ugly their relationship actually is!
On RHONY, we saw her mother’s friend say that she never really wanted kids (wow – what a great thing to say to her daughter!) and if you think that seems rough – wait until you hear what mommy dearest is saying now!
Bethenny’s mother (Bernadette Birk, who if you want to google looks like a terrifying version of Bethenny) spoke out in the press about her daughter and the upcoming trailer for RHONY. The trailer reveals that Bethenny will be going through some unspecified “woman’s health issue” and her cold mother isn’t the least bit concerned for her daughters well being.
In Touch spoke with Bernadette who shockingly claimed:
“Bethenny is a publicity-mad drama queen. When she has a hangnail, she acts like her finger is falling off.”
“Bethenny went into the hospital for an overnight medical procedure, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was for a tummy tuck! I mean, there are no hereditary medical problems in our family, so I really can’t imagine what kind of issue she’s having.”
“As far as her living will — I’m getting one made, too, and Bethenny won’t be a part of it, nor will her daughter [Bryn, 5].”
“She’s a miserable daughter, and if we never speak again, it’ll be too soon.”
No matter what you think of Bethenny – no daughter deserves to have a mother that would say such cruel things to the press and even include her innocent granddaughter! I honestly don’t have words for her statements!
Bernadette also seems to be making the media rounds as she also spoke with Radar Online earlier revealing similar sentiments and sharing that she hasn’t spoken with Bethenny in 12 years.
Among the gems from that interview include her dismissing the health situation saying it’s probably no big deal along with: “I don’t really know anything about her life and I don’t want to.”
Wow – when it comes to Bethenny vs. her mother I am definitely team Bethenny!
What are your thoughts on her mother speaking out to the gossip sites? Are you shocked at her statements??
