Yes, our favorite Bravo girl, Bethenny Frankel and her hubby were lost at sea this past weekend. What was supposed to be a relaxing boat trip to Block Island turned into a scary experience for this Skinnygirl. Keep reading to find out what Bethenny had to say about the traumatic sailing experience.
Bethenny and her hubby, Jason Hoppy, were enjoying a sailing trip this past weekend when a huge wave turned the trip into a nightmare. The sailboat was headed to Nantucket, MA from Block Island when the GPS malfunctioned leaving the ten passengers concerned for their safety. Bethenny said the over twenty hour experience was “very scary and absolutely traumatic. “ The captain had to call the Coast Guard for assistance with navigation, but everyone on board made it back to land safely.
The crew of Bravo was actually on the sailboat, filming for Bethenny’s new series. I’m sure this will make for some great TV! Can you picture Bethenny, who is quite the control freak, trying to stay calm during this situation? Of course, Bethenny’s main concern was for her little girl, Bryn, who was not on the boat. Bethenny told E! News, “She’s going to wonder where Mommy is and gosh, if something were to happen to me, what would happen to her. I was having horrendous thoughts.”
I’m sure Bethenny will need to take a break from sailing for awhile, to recover from this experience. I wonder if they had enough Skinnygirl margaritas on board to last them for the 20 hour trip?
