Some celebrities have become famous based on a mix of luck and connections and other celebrities have had to work extremely hard to get where they are today. Bethenny Frankel is the latter. The ultra-successful entrepreneur and reality star of "Bethenny Ever After" and previously "The Real Housewives of NYC" has built her brand from the ground up going from not being able to pay her rent to being a multi-millionaire.
This week the always fabulous Bethenny released her first novel 'Skinnydipping,' a fictional novel about a girl, Faith Brightstone, whose life and experiences closely resemble the same events in Bethenny's life. Will the reality star start churning out novels as fast as she releases delicious low-cal drinks? We hope so!
Not everyone is happy for the reality star's mega success though.
Former "Real Housewives" co-star Jill Zarin was attacked via social media this past week when she tweeted, "I'm watching a TV show realizing how lucky and grateful I am to be married to Mr. Bobby Zarin, the love of my life, my biggest supporter" while Bethenny's reality show on Bravo! was airing an episode that showed a heated argument between Bethenny and her husband Jason Hoppy.
One Bethenny fan quickly shot back at Jill tweeting, "We aren't complete idiots! You were referring to [Bethenny]!"
Jill denied the accusations immediately by saying, "It's very sad you and some people always go to dark place. If I want to make a dig, I'll make a dig. I haven't in three years."
Hmm…do you think Jill was being sincere? We didn't think so. And neither did Bethenny. The brunette babe tweeted later about the Twitter war, "People are desperate."
So between Twitter battles, a new book, and a highly successful TV show what else is Bethenny up to? Let's take a look at her Twitter talk:
She gushed about her ever adorable daughter. "Bryn & I girl bonded so much this weekend. Like any other relationship sometimes it's even sweeter than ever! LOVE!"
Before Jessica Simpson gave birth and was facing being nearly two weeks over due Bethenny tweeted, "Stop the insanity! @JessicaSimpson is still preggers! @kourtneykardashian needs to step in & pull that baby out!"
On Monday night Bethenny said, "If you can believe it, we have another boat disaster tonight in Mexico. I'm not sea worthy." Should B stay out of the waters?
Will you be picking up Bethenny's new book to read on the beach this summer?
