Bethenny Frankel is in hot water once again for making controversial remarks, but this time it has nothing to do with her Real Housewives of New York crowd. This, is much more serious!
Frankel, the founder of Skinny Girl Vodka, was the keynote speaker at Rent The Runway’s Project Entrepreneur intensive. Tapped to give her insight into the business world, many women signed up to hear Bethenny’s advice. But one woman, Mary Pryor, was shocked to hear that Frankel’s advice included using sex to get ahead and telling Black women that White men needed to be the face of their organizations.
In an article for Huffington Post, Pryor expressed her initial feeling during the woman’s entrepreneurial summit.
“I was stunned when Frankel implied that women should have sex with men in exchange for capital. I was offended when she expressed some kind of kinship with black women because she’s ‘loud.’ And I was taken aback when she advised those of us in the room to get business advice to hire a white man as the face of our companies.”
Mary also offered a tweet-by-tweet account of her experience at the event. One that, despite Bethenny’s offensive comments, seem to celebrate diversity among business woman. Click through the gallery to read all of Mary’s tweets and Frankel’s response. It’s worth noting that Bethenny denies the whole account.
Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy
Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.
If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage. So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.
Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.
“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”
“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”
To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.
“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”
