Bethenny Frankel Defends Her Racist Rant Against Kmart Workers

Published

on

Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel just might have opened herself a bag of cats. Earlier this week Bethenny took to her twitter account to express her frustrations after returning home from an unpleasant experience at Kmart.

Bethenny revealed that she had gone to K-Mart in order to find a pair of winter shoes for her daughter Bryn. Frankel was clearly unimpressed with the employees at Kmart as she revealed in her twitter rant that while their was 2 registers open, with five employees in total, the two she had approached could not speak a word of English.

Bethenny continues to spark controversy in her twitter rant when she mistakenly thought that the spanish word for shoes… was spats. Maybe with ear muffs on Zapatos could sound like spats?

Fans of the RHONY star were clearly outraged by Frankel’s rant, and even went as far as to call the Skinny Girl Empress racist. However Bethenny is sticking by her rant, and even explained earlier today that their is no excuse for an employee at a retailer to not be able to communicate with the customer.

Bethenny continued that it had nothing to do with race. However in an obvious effort to do damage control Bethenny explained that it was heart breaking for her earlier today when she saw an elderly man limping with his groceries… and she of course helped him out.

    Bethany is always right even when she’s wrong simply because she’s Bethenny.

    I’ve supported Bethenny again and again. On other sites (Are there any?? *wink*), in discussions, wherever. I’ve seen her called “Bones,” “Barfenny,” and all manner of inappropriate names by (undoubtedly jealous) haters related to her svelte figure. I *LOVE* her brash, no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners, “I have no time for this crap!” attitude that shows female viewers that we don’t have to be the docile little Antebellum lambs that The Countess is always trying to make it seem like we should be.

    Annnnd…then this.

    I’m going to skip over the whole, “Wait…Bethenny shops at K-MART?!” schtick, because I actually think that’s a really good way to not waste money on shoes and clothes that little kids are just going to outgrow in 2.5 seconds, anyway. You know what they say, “You don’t stay rich by spending money,” and all, so K-Mart isn’t a big shocker.

    What nauseates me is that I’m about to quote Paul Ryan, the Republican Speaker of the House: to say someone’s heritage/nationality precludes them from doing their job “is the textbook definition of racism.”

    If we can say it of Donald Trump, Bethenny Frankel does NOT get a pass, I’m afraid. Sorry Skinny Girl.

    (I still love your bottled Piña Colada, though! *sigh* I’ll just have to mix it with my briny, briny tears of betrayal next time…)

    If she were really biased against Latins, why would she send Bryn to learn Spanish when she was 3 yrs old? #rhony #bethenny

Bethenny Frankel Opens Up About Her Current Status With Luann De Lesseps And Jill Zarin

Bethenny Frankel Opens Up About Her Current Status With Luann De Lesseps And Jill Zarin

Bethenny Frankel is one of the OG cast members of The Real Housewives of New York City. She recently opened up about two cast mates who were also originally on the show – Luann De Lesseps and Jill Zarin. Her friendships with the two ladies have been up and down over the years. However; since Luann De Lesseps went to rehab and Jill Zarin lost her husband Bobby Zarin to cancer – she has been getting closer to the two. This has fueled a lot of conversation in the media.

Bethenny stopped by Watch What Happens Live and, of course, was asked about Luann and Jill. She commented, “Luann is great. I mean Luann is actually, you know I can’t say I’m surprised, because Luann, we’ve talked about this, is the most resilient, strong, woman I’ve ever met, maybe. She hit the wall going 90, and the way you handle something when something bad happens, is really character building. It shows a lot about a person. She’s taking care of herself, she’s taking it seriously. She’s not delusional about where she is and she’s sort of on a path. She’s in a good place.” She added, “I mean, she’s very honest about exactly where she is and what happened. And about what her goals are. We spent time in a spa, and I’m honestly impressed.”

Bethenny also addressed her relationship with Jill Zarin, which people have been discussing since Bobby’s funeral. They had that special moment at the funeral and have been in touch a lot ever since. That has sparked people making assumptions that the two are bestfriends again. Then people thought Bethenny didn’t truly want to be BFF again, based on some of her interviews. However; Bethenny opened up about it on WWHL and said, “I went over to her house, I took my daughter out of school early to kind of just explain to her what sitting shiva was and a little bit about death and how you kind of support someone. We went over to her house. No one was there except Jill and Ally. I was actually there before Jill got back, she was going to the bank. She was probably going to the bank to cash all Bobby’s checks he left her. She was coming right back, and I surprised her. We had a nice conversation. She said to me, the first thing when she walked in, she said, ‘I begged Bobby to fix it. Fix it with Bethenny. Call her Fix it.’ And Bobby, who never said no to her, said, ‘No Jill. You have to figure it out yourself. You have to learn the lesson because you were wrong.’ So it was amazing that she kind of said that to me.”

She summed it up, “We had a really nice conversation. It was nice to hangout with Ally. It was nice for Bryn to meet Jill. It was all really nice and I knew it was making her feel really good in a difficult time. So it felt really, just positive.”

I think it’s really compassionate of Bethenny to be supportive of both Luann and Jill. She has had good times with these women, but there have also been feisty feuds. Bethenny could easily throw all of this in Luann’s face, and gloat, but she doesn’t. You don’t judge people when they are down and going through a hard time. The way people deal with tough situations is what truly defines them. I’m hoping that Bethenny and Jill will head towards that super close friendship they once had. I loved when they were besties in the earlier seasons. I definitely think it will take time, but it is totally possible.

See Bethenny open up in this clip!

Are you surprised Bethenny is being supportive of Luann and Jill?

Luann de Lesseps Hires Sober Team

As we reported, RHONY star Luann de Lesseps got out of rehab last week after her highly-publicized arrest for allegedly hitting a police officer in a drunken meltdown. Luann is now seeking a new team of sober employees to work for her, including a new personal assistant in order to try to stay sober.

But according to a new report, the former Countess’ diva behavior is still in tact. One applicant told RadarOnline he declined the position after he witnessed behavior he claimed was “unprofessional.”

“She was just ridiculous. For example, she would have her other assistant contact me to let me know that Luann would be calling us shortly. But she would never call,” the insider alleged.

Do you believe this report? I have to say, I’ve spoken with Luann and she’s always been lovely.

Are Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel Friends Again?

Real Housewives stars Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin have one of the most notorious friendships/feuds in the entire franchise. After Jill’s beloved husband Bobby lost his battle with cancer, we saw Jill and Bethenny reunite at the funeral with some emotional photos. So are they friends again?

Zarin took to Instagram to share the following photos and messages to Frankel. “I’m sitting around going thru photos and put together a collage of @bethennyfrankel with my family. Bobby gave me the best 1 liners and a few come to mind. “1 more that’s it!” and “here’s to those who wish us well and those who don’t can go $&@! Themselves!” Please share your favorite 1 liners below. Miss B…thanks for the memories tonight.”

As we reported, the funeral was filmed for RHONY season ten, so there’s definitely a possibility viewers will finally get to see these two reunite.
