Bethenny is proud for claiming she doesn’t give a f*ck and not caring what anyone thinks of her. Despite her tough exterior, she does admire some select people and will take their advice when it’s given.
In a recent interview, Bethenny talks about her admiration for Ellen DeGeneres and how she took her advice seriously when it was bestowed on her. If you recall, Ellen was the one who gave Bethenny a shot with her ill fated talk show and gave her some words of wisdom on how to deal with the critics.
Bethenny revealed that Ellen told the tough talking New Yorker to “just be herself.” While this is usually great advice (and has done wonders for the warm and hilariuos Ellen) this advice didn’t fare so well for Bethenny. Bethenny is pretty cold and darts from topic to topic, which isn’t the best quality if you’re a talk show host.
Bethenny also revealed that Ellen gave her some deeper advice saying “You will keep repeating the same mistakes until you actually learn the lesson.” Ok Professor Ellen – that’s some pretty good advice and I’m going to need to write that one down!
Ellen also told Bethenny to “not get caught up in how much people love you and also don’t get sucked down by how much people hate you.” Personally I don’t think the B cares what people think of her so I don’t think that would be an issue.
I love Ellen and her show always has a postive vibe. Bethenny’s show didn’t get off the ground as she didn’t have a connection witht the audience and overall she’s made for reality TV and not hosting a talk show.
