For the Love of All That is Holy...


...Bethenney Frankel is pregnant.

I love Bethenney. Really, I do.

But this is not right.

1. She is engaged to a man named Hoppy. This is as unacceptable as the adult woman I know who only dates men who go by animal names (and some named after card suits).

2. She was forced to talk about it because there was "online buzz". Jesus Christ. You aren't 10 years old. You don't have to give in to peer pressure.

3. I think she is an eating disorder waiting to happen. Per People magazine: "I'm hungry in a way that is not negotiable." Uh oh. Look's like SGM was right...there may just be a line of SkinnyBaby baby food on the way.

Oy.

She does get bonus points though for telling E!: "He liked it so much he put a ring on it!"

Elizabeth Marie said...

I really like her. I like skinny margaritas or whatever...straight booze, but she's getting a lil crazyyyy...

carrie1 said...

Totally agree with all of thee above! =)

oh brother. You know, I used to like her a lot but then after Real Housewives of NY and a blog she wrote about I believe the Jersey group, she just came off as being so cocky. Ever since then it just kind of ruined her for me.

Samma said...

She is going to have trouble drinking those skinny girl cocktails now!

Cee said...

I love her too and I am happy that she finally got a man and a baby because she has been whining about that since the first season but I don't get why she needed to come out about the pregnancy now because of pressure. Just say no.

Sonja said...

I love Bethenny! & She didn't look pregnant at all on Saturday!

I'm happy for her however I think being pg may be a bad thing for her? lol I completely agree with everythhing you said!

Summer @ B is for Brown said...

oy vey. another freaking celebrity over 40 pregnant and not married? dude, i am so old fashioned. sorry. what the hell? whatever, maybe she is not 40 yet. blah.

Carol said...

Yeah I agree, this is so weird!! My first thought was that coming out with the news was for publicity, with the new season coming up and everything.

Whitney said...

I was thinking the exact same thing about the "peer pressure." Hello! It's NOT the 7th grade!

brit @ landlocked bride said...

Bahaha. I was actually thinking shot gun wedding. I mean, afterall, she did just announce her engagement like last week...

Emma said...

I'll take any excuse to travel! Xo

Annie said...

Kristin said...

She cracks my arse up. Hope she's ready to give up her skinny 'ritas!

skinnyrunner.com said...

i can't like her bc of her weird face shape. that's mature, right?

Hailey {HRH} said...

i totally agree with you. i seriously had those exact thoughts. really - you didnt HAVE to come out. no one was holding a gun to your head. and HOPPY? what kind of name is that?

happy_wife said...

I thought she was engaged to that Jason guy she used to date? What do I know? Let's just hope she doesn't indulge in a little self inflicted morning sickness to make sure the baby weight doesn't creep on.

Glad you had fun in NYC!

HoustonGurly said...

Love it!

It Is Everlasting said...

Oh wow, I hadn't heard about the baby yet, just the engagement. I do love her "he put a ring on it!" comment - classic.

I love your blog and thanks so much for your sweet comment on my race re-cap. It was an awesome day and now thanks to all of my sweet blog friends I have a big smile on my face remembering how great it was!

amy kelinda said...

HOPPY?!?!?!?!? That is all I can even say right now.

...

Really, HOPPY?!

mamagooch said...

HOPPY. I have no words.

Brown Eyed Girl said...

I just saw this yesterday! Crazy. I will admit that I'm pretty pumped to see this lady put a little baby fat on her body! She's tiny!! It's just not right!

Melissa said...

She totally needs to eat a sandwich, but she is my favorite NYC housewife by far. Are you going to watch her new show?

Llama said...

SOMEONE feed her she is too cute to waste away!

SGM said...

I'm with Brown Eyed Girl--can't wait to see her pork up!

Thanks for the mention, sweet Sarah.

Ams said...

She needs a little meat on that body!
And really... Hoppy?!

Midtown Girl said...

#3 Kills me! I follow her on Twitter (not sure why, although her little riff with R. Zoe was funny to read) and she always tweet about food.

I'm serious almost every single tweet...

"lobster rolls in Montauk" chilly chesse dogs & waffle fries in a pub..etc.

Then I read on Page 6 one day, one of those "we hear" posts saying "which housewife takes laxatives on a daily basis"....hmmm?
