When I got the call that I was invited to go to the Calling All My Girls event with Bethenny Frankel there may have been screams, multiple times of saying “Shut Up!” and “Dying” and possibly tears. The thing is, Bethenny is one of the few women that I admire. She’s the type of girl you want to have a Skinnygirl Margarita with, ask for advice and gossip with.
Her Calling All My Girls tour did exactly that. Bethenny chatted with us (us being 150ish Cleveland ladies who all admire Bethenny), took pictures, played games, brought in some Cleveland bachelors for us to hang out with, served up her fantastic drinks and shared more about her upcoming talk show. And it’s not a typical talk show….she’ll be hanging out (you know, from NYC), giving advice, making you laugh and talking about all the things we wanna hear about (home, health, family, career, relationships, style, sex). And her little theme song “Calling All My Girls” may still be stuck in my head.
Bethenny doesn’t just have a new TV show coming out (which will be on WKYC starting Sept. 9th at 3pm – get your DVRs set!). She also has a new book which was just recently released, Skinnygirl Solutions. Think of it as your “how-to” guide: how to stay organized, how to achieve balance, how to clean and even how to stay in healthy relationships.
We all had the opportunity to meet Bethenny and chat it up with her and needless to say, I spent days thinking of what I would say. I’m not kidding when I say she’s my “life idol”. I want to be friends with her yes, but I also seriously admire her. This woman has been through a lot but she keeps going, putting her daughter first and building the Skinnygirl empire.
My Bethenny story isn’t over yet….Stay tuned for more….from NYC!
