Worshiping Bethenny Frankel

I whisper the confession to only my most open-minded friends:

"I don't get Bethenny Frankel."

My confusion certainly seems like the exception, rather than the rule. I have friends who loyally purchase Frankel's products and squeal upon finding a marathon of her reality TV show.

And now, there's this article -- one woman's claim that Frankel "shows that having it all is possible."


When judged against the "Housewives" crew, Frankel is a certainly a role model. That's not saying much.

Yes, she demonstrates a certain honesty on her reality show, all while merging personal and professional success.

But aside from her celebrity appeal, does she translate to the average woman's life? I don't know.

What do you think?
