Talk about having a ‘Throwback Thursday!’
Bethenny Frankel, OG star of The Real Housewives of New York, has come a long way since the premiere season – both in her professional and personal life. She was trying to launch her business in season one, and now her Skinny Girl brand is worth millions. She was struggling with relationships, and although she is not with anyone right now – she did get the baby she always wanted.
Yesterday Bethenny posted on her Instagram live story, clips of that horrifying episode where she made her boyfriend a nice dinner and wanted to talk about moving in together. He kept saying, ‘Let’s talk about it later.’ Queen B posted a video of the screen while that scene played, and you could hear her making shocked and horrified noises. She also said, “I haven’t watched this since then.” Perhaps she really doesn’t watch the show once it initially airs, or watch other seasons for that matter. Bethenny recently got heat about not knowing Dorit Kemsley has an accent, with people saying she was protecting and defending her bestie, Kyle Richards. Bethenny claimed on Watch What Happens Live that she honestly didn’t know, and that she doesn’t watch the other cities.
Also featured was her opening intro from the earlier days, which included her beloved dog, Cookie. Bethenny could be heard saying, “Aww Cookie.” She sadly lost her dug last Summer. Bethenny had her puppy when she didn’t have many people in her life. She even made a children’s book for her daughter and dog, titled, “Cookie Loves Peanut.” Also included was the clip of Ramona Singer out with friends, and they meet Tom, who would later go on to get married to Luann de Lesseps. Bethenny said, “And now we meet Tom.”
I think it’s great to see how far Bethenny Frankel has come in her endeavors since the earlier seasons. It’s inspirational! To go back and watch seasons from years ago is fun, because so much has always changed since then. I’m going to have to go back and re-watch all of the ladies at some point to see the full circle they make!
Check out this clip of Bethenny and Kelly Bensimon going at it during the earlier RHONY days!
