Bethenny Frankel’s Estranged Mother Speaks Out

October 07, 2011 12:37 PM by Megan Thompson

Bethenny Frankel’s estranged mom is speaking out about the Bravo star’s marriage.  Is she giving some loving motherly advice?  Hardly! Keep reading to find out what Bethenny’s mother is saying.

If you have watched Bethenny on her reality shows, you know she views herself as an orphan.  She doesn’t have fond childhood memories of her mother or her father.  On her last season of The Real Housewives Of New York we saw Bethenny rush to her dying father’s bedside to try to make peace.  No one from Bethenny’s immediate family was there for her when she got married or had her daughter, Bryn.

So what is her mother saying about her famous daughter now?  In an interview with Star Magazine Bernadette lashes out about Bethenny’s marriage to Jason and actually takes credit for the Skinnygirl margarita concept!  Yep, that’s right!  As for Bernadette’s take on Jason, she told Star Magazine, “Right now, he is a good father, but soon she won’t need him and she will dump him.”  She even went onto say that Jason is just too weak for Bethenny. 

Bethenny’s mother must have been outraged (jealous) to learn that her daughter was number three on the Forbes’ list of Hollywood’s Highest -Earning Women.  Mommy dearest is even claiming that Bethenny stole the Skinnygirl concept from her saying, “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. But [Bethenny] would never give anyone credit, it goes against her narcissistic point of view.”

Wow! No matter how you feel towards your mother, that has to hurt!  Bethenny has not commented on her mother’s remarks.  Maybe now that she has a family with Jason and Bryn, she just wants to forget about the past.

    Yikes! Bethenny’s mom sure is a parasite. I don’t know how she can comment on anything about Bethenny’s life when, by her own admission, she’s only spoken to her twice in 10 years. Has she even met her husband? How can she comment? Oh yeah, the tabloids pay for stories, and as long as they pay her for stores, she’ll keep making them up.

    Every time this woman speaks to the tabloids she makes it more clear why Bethenny doesn’t have anything to do with her.
