Girls Night Out: With Bethenny Frankel

I should have known we were in for a wild night when Bethenny walked on stage shaking what can only be described as, "what her Mama gave her." It was a night filled with laughter, profanity, booty shakin' and liquor. What more could a girl ask for? As she took her seat at the small, romantic "table-for-one" on stage, she sipped her Skinnygirl and shameless announced, "No two nights are ever the same and I might get a little shitfaced." Bethenny, you're my kinda gal. Can we hurry up and be mom-friends?

Let's cut straight to the point. She's exactly like how she is on her show- but better. And funnier.  And did I mention skinnier? Because hot damn, Bethenny looks good. Let's just say I'll be downloading her books onto my Kindle today and hoping and praying for legs as skinny as hers. I'm pretty sure she mentioned how drinking Skinnygirl margs equals skinny legs, right? Right? Right?!

In all seriousness, homegirl can talk and bullshit with the best of 'em. She talked about everything from being $50,000 dollars in debt when she first started filming the very first season of the Real Housewives of New York to how she survived Kelly Bensimon on "Scary Island." She had many of us nodding in full agreement when she said, "It's such a frustrating feeling when you know someone is crazy and no one else does!" Bethenny, sista, you're preaching to the choir.

When asked about her future with the Housewives and what prompted her decision not to return to the show, she let us know that she was "tired of being rewarded for bad behavior" and that Bravo is all about, "the money and the drama." Amen, girlfriend. Amen.

She talked about her new line of shapewear, the three books she's written including this month's new release, "A Place Of Yes," which if you've been following along was the book she burned in the barbecue at the end of last season's Bethenny Getting Married as well as her relationship with hottie husband Jason and darling baby Bryn, who unfortunately, did not make the surprise cameo I was hoping for. Sads.

She dished gossip, talked about the future of Bethenny Ever After and of course, about a sibling for Bryn. At the end of the show, she opened the floor for a little Q&A session with the audience. Women and liquor? You can only imagine what ensued.  

At one point, a woman approached the microphone and asked, "So, Bethenny. We have to know. What's your favorite position?" And well, Bethenny being Bethenny, she answered. Let's just say it's the same as mine. Wink.

Despite sitting amongst an audience of nearly one thousand, Bethenny managed to make the night seem not only intimate, but as if we were just hanging at a club with some of our closest girlfriends double-fisting Skinnygirl margs. She's that real and she's that down to earth.

So, what can we expect from this season of Bethenny Ever After? All I can say is, in her words, not mine, "It gets gnarly..."

Don't forget to tune into Bravo tonight at 10pm to catch up with one of my new "besties." If you're on Twitter, you know I'll be tweeting through the show @LvdMoreThnCrrts.

Oh, hey! There I am! Were you wondering what I looked like? I know, it's been a while since you've seen my face on this blog. Well, wonder no more Loyals! Of course I couldn't miss the opportunity to pose with the Skinnygirl bug! Obsessed much?

Happy Monday, readers!
