Bernadette Birk is at it again. Although he's been estranged from Bethenny Frankel for quite some time, Birk continues to weigh in on her famous daughter's life choices in the tabloids. The latest: she tells Star magazine (via Radar Online) that Frankel is headed for divorce from Jason Hoppy and that the entrepreneur's "Skinnygirl" brand was her idea.

"Right now, he is a good father, but soon she won't need him and she will dump him," says Birk, referring to Frankel's husband of more than one year and father of her baby girl, Bryn. "Her husband seems like a really nice guy, but it won't last. He is really too weak for her."

Mommy Dearest is also taking credit for Frankel's money-making Skinnygirl Margarita mix. "When she was young, her godmother, Eleanor Mogavero, would come and visit, and her drink of choice was a margarita. She was overweight, so I'd make her really low-fat ones," she recalls. "But (Bethenny) would never give anyone credit, it goes against her narcissistic point of view."

Bitter, table for one? If Birk ever wants to see her grandaughter, perhaps she should quit dragging her own child's name through the mud. Frankel's not the only one who needs an attitude adjustment.
