Did Bethenny Frankel Fake Being Lost at Sea for Her TV Show?

Bethenny FrankelBethenny Frankel has parlayed being a cast member of 'The Real Housewives of New York City' into a flourishing business empire and reality TV show franchise. Now, however, questions are being asked about how "real" her reality show is. Are some scenes faked for the cameras?

Last month Frankel said that she and husband Jason Hoppy were lost at sea off of the Massachusetts coastline for 20 hours: "It was traumatic. Absolutely traumatic."

Sounds scary, right? Well, maybe not. Frankel's rescuer Tim Russell says that she was never lost at sea, or in any danger, and that the whole thing was a phoney, staged for the benefit of the Bravo camera crew on board the boat with her.

Bethenny Frankel, 'Bethenny Ever After'During their Christmas celebration, Bethenny and Jason found a quiet moment together on 'Bethenny Ever After' (Mon., 10PM ET on Bravo). On a wagon ride that was almost away from the trappings of civilization -- except for that pesky highway blasting right by -- Jason got a little sentimental about their new lives together.

"Don't make me cry," Bethenny told him not once, but twice. Nevertheless, Jason would not be stopped and he made her cry anyway. But they were good tears.

"My family has not had a lot of happiness in a long time, and you've brought that happiness to us," he told her. Bethenny could do little more than echo his words in the moment.

Sex-Starved Jason and Bethenny Going Are Going CrazyOn 'Bethenny Getting Married' (Thu., 10PM ET on BRAVO), it's been five weeks since Bethenny Frankel gave birth, and her husband Jason Hoppy is going crazy.

"I just wasn't aware that the deprivation of sex would send Jason into a complete tailspin," says Bethenny. "You cannot have sex for six weeks after you give birth. Doctors orders."

But weeks of abstaining could be affecting Bethenny too, as she becomes practically delirious. She turns the word "Montauk" -- on the eastern tip of Long Island -- into a sexual joke and becomes hysterical with laughter. Jason is not amused.

Bethenny Frankel Has a Baby on 'Getting Married'Roughly 25 hours into labor, Bethenny Frankel says to husband Jason Hoppy, "I wanta know how high school girls give birth in the bathroom stall."

Hoppy can't imagine it either. Not much is happening in their hospital room, as evidenced by the home-video footage shown on 'Bethenny Getting Married' (Thu., 10PM ET on BRAVO). So at the 27-hour mark, the couple opts for a C-section.

Hoppy dons the "jumpsuit" he must wear during the surgery. "You're like a member of the pit crew!" says Frankel. Check out the video for the baby's name.

Bethenny Frankel Inflicts Her Own March Madness on Fiancé Jason (VIDEO)

Bethenny Inflicts March Madness on Fiancé JasonPlanning the wedding-day menu is the final straw for Bethenny Frankel. No, technically, seeing fiancé Jason Hoppy watch college basketball while she pores over wedding logistics is what drives her over the edge on 'Bethenny Getting Married' (hu., 10PM ET on BRAVO).

"Jason's knee deep in March Madness right now, horizontal on the couch, hand in the pretzel bowl," says Bethenny. "And I am ripping my hair out having a full-on internal nervous breakdown planning this damn wedding."

She asks Jason about beef tartar several times before he hears her correctly. "If you want to see March madness, you'll see a pregnant woman light her friggin' hair on fire and go crazy right now," says Bethenny. "You're not getting this. I'm seven months pregnant, and I'm planning this thing, and you have been MIA."

"You can't hang over my head all the things that you take on," says Jason. "That's your choice ... I don't want to lose what's important about this ... Are we getting married for us, or are we getting married for the production of this?"

Real Housewives' Bethenny Frankel is real pregnant

Bethenny_Frankel_skinny_girlBethenny Frankel has been busy making news. First, she was feuding with the other women on The Real Housewives of New York City. Then, she was replaced on Real Housewives by Sonja Morgan because Bethenny is getting her own Bravo show. Last week, she announced her engagement to Jason Hoppy. Today, Bethenny's confirmed that she's pregnant... and yes, Jason is the father.

Bethenny is two months along and claims she would have preferred keeping the baby news quiet until she'd gotten through her first trimester. It's understandable because it's her first baby and some people are superstitious about saying anything too soon.

Buh-bye Housewives! Bethenny scores her own show

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 16th 2009 1:29PM
bethenny_frankel_skinny_BravoThe way I see it, Bethenny Frankel was the star of The Real Housewives of New York City ... even though she wasn't a housewife. What was she doing on the show in the first place? Anyway, she was the most dynamic of the group and with her interests in fashion, food and partying, she had the most to offer viewers. The powers that be have seen what I did because Bethenny Frankel is getting her own Bravo show.

Starting this fall, Bethenny will be front and center in a new show called Skinny & the City. As you'd expect, she will not be coming back to The Real Housewives of New York City -- however, she might not be the only one out because rumor has it that the ladies have all been looking for a substantial pay raise.
