Bethenny Frankel split from her husband about one month ago so she’s been single roughly 30 days, and she has a daughter who she’s managed to keep alive for the past two years. Apparently that’s enough to make Bethenny qualified to write a book about being a single parent. Kind of like how I’m qualified to perform minor surgeries out my home because I took an anatomy class and have a mid-priced set of kitchen knives. From Radar:
Hoping to make lemonade out of lemons, SkinnyGirl mogul Bethenny Frankel is writing a new book about her life as a single mom, as she begins divorce proceedings against Jason Hoppy…
“Bethenny has been writing and documenting her feelings in the beginning stages of the divorce,” a source close to the situation tells us. “The book will explore the struggles and compromises all single mom face. It will deal with the delicate balancing act that is being a single mom, and the guilt she feels because her daughter Bryn will now come from a broken home, something she never wanted for her little girl.”
I fail to see how an anorexic,New York socialite could possibly identify with the day-today struggles of your average working,single mother,especially since the only valid advice Bethenny has ever given is how to make a margarita that tastes like cat piss (Low in calories, high in ammonia!) I guess that’s the marketing department’s problem.
