“Bethenny Getting Skinny”: W+G renames the Real Housewife’s new TV show

Tonight Bethenny Frankel, the Real—and really skinny—Housewife, debuts her own TV show. It’s called “Bethenny Getting Married,” but we’d like to propose “Bethenny Getting Skinny.” This season, the reality star, in addition to getting engaged, pregnant, married, and having the baby, she will also launch a vague-sounding natural food business.

We don’t know whether to laugh or cry. One the one hand, Bethenny Frankel is about as healthy as a Diet Coke. She claims to want to democratize healthy eating–a laudable goal–and then serves as the spokesperson for Pepperidge Farm’s Baked Naturals and launches Skinnygirl Margarita, a low-cal bottled cocktail. Ick. Who’d want to say cheers to that? There’s no mistaking her for a Slow Food advocate. But if ladies really do want to know how to eat at a Smith & Wollensky, Ms. Frankel is there to advise on “Healthy Eating at a Steakhouse.

The always entertaining YogaDork weighs in on Frankel’s devotion to yoga, while questioning her yoga IQ. What are your thoughts? Should we shut up and be happy that Frankel is encouraging people to think about what they eat, even if that includes packaged drink mixers. Or dare we hope for a better ambassador, a Jamie Oliver-type, to raise consciousness about healthy eating?
