Bethenny spoke out about the inaccurate story the Huffington Post reported about her lying about the sale of her brand, SkinnyGirl to The Hollywood Reporter saying:

I think we girls should all go celebrate Bethenny’s success by buying a bottle of SkinnyGirl and getting looped with our friends.

Go buy your SkinnyGirl. That’s how we can say “hats off to Bet
Incidentally, when I’m blogging I’m in beautiful, sunny California usually outside sitting on my chaise lounge and listening to the soothing sounds of a fountain. Rob, however, does look a little pasty and like he could use a little sun, so he probably is in a dark room on his computer. I think Bethenny probably got that one right.
