This comment is for Bethenny frankel of the rhony. After watching you cry about not having a home for you and your daughter, i was sickened. Do you realizewhat you said. You were telling your realtor that you couldnt stay at your tribeca home, or the soho home, because it was getting renovated, and you couldn’t stay at your hampton mansion because that was for vacationing, and then you started crying because you only stayed at hotel penthouses and you just dont have a home to live in. Im going to call you lady, cause im a Christian, but, lady you made me sickened when you said that. Do you know how many people just in New York alone who really cry at night because the live in a cardboard box and dont have a dollar to their name and only dream of havinga bed at night and dream they could have your problem! Hey lady, Bethenny, or whoever the hell your pretending to be just to get a paycheck, you can watch your rhony show by yourself because i will never watch it again. Not after your desperate plea for a home…sickening biotch..unbelievable. and i hope the lord taketh as fast as he giveth …you don’t deserve it lady…


First and foremost, as a Christian I am deeply offended that you use my religion to elevate your status and value. Furthermore, bashing someone because their issues happen to be a problem you wished you would have. Envy, greed. and hate are sins as a Christian you’re suppose to avoid. But you use each one as a way to slander someone else. You have no idea what Bethenny Frankel has had to overcome in life to be where she is today. She earned the money she has. each & EVERY penny. She knows what its like to struggle, just like others have. She was fortunate to be blessed with a brilliant idea, that she implemented and pursued with unrelenting focus & determination. Her daughter was her driving force. She wanted her to have the life she didn’t (she grew up very poor). Bethenny never knew what real love was until she had her little girl. Her father abandoned her and her mother was a narcissist, who hated her daughter. Berated her any chance she got growing up. Even now this day she still is a horrifically evil human being. Her weak ex husband could not stand her success. He verbally, mentally & emotionally abused her all because of his own insecurities. Bethenny still struggles with relationships of all kinds due to a very painful childhood and then some. Yet here you are passing judgment on her because her problems are different than yours. Everyone makes their own path in life. Some are stronger than others, some just give up. But no matter your circumstance, you have no right to judge this person strictly on Your own insecurities and jealousy. You need to take a good hard look at your own life and if you really are a Christian. You really need to make a better effort in regards to anger, hate and judgment, and get right with God as they say.
