On an upcoming episode of ,  Season 3, we see her looking at an article on her Blackberry, and exclaim that someone else is claiming credit for inventing the  Skinny Girl Margarita.

Who might that be?  None other than her mother,    She sold her story to Star Magazine. This was the same week was named the third highest paid female entertainer by Forbes Magazine.

From Star Magazine

Super candid reality star and entrepreneur Bethenny Frankel has been married to Jason Hoppy for a year and a half, but according to her estranged mother in a recent interview she’s headed for divorce. Not only that, Bernadette Birk says the Skinnygirl Margarita concept was actually her idea. Really?

Bernadette told Star Magazine in an exclusive interview, “Right now, he is a good father, but soon she won’t need him and she will dump him.” She added, “Her husband seems like a really nice guy, but it won’t last. He is really too weak for her.”

When it comes to her daughter’s booming business as well, Bernadette didn’t mince words. The Skinnygirl Margarita mix help launch the bestselling author onto the third spot on Forbes’ list of Hollywood’s Highest-Earning Women with an income of $55 million — not too shabby!

The estranged mom explained the concept was actually her idea. “When she was young, her godmother, Eleanor Mogavero, would come and visit, and her drink of choice was a margarita. She was overweight, so I’d make her really low-fat ones. But [Bethenny] would never give anyone credit, it goes against her narcissistic point of view.”

Apparently she’s only spoken to her daughter twice in the past ten years. “She sells everything because money and power is No. 1 for her, and there is never enough. She only puts herself around people who can do something for her. It is amazing how she turned out just like her father.”

This is not the first time Birk has slammed Bethenny publicly. No doubt this stems from the E! True Hollywood Story interview of Bethenny, also.  This relationship seems damaged beyond repair.

    Bitter much Mommie Dearest?!


    Bethenny’s mother lives in my good friend’s building. She said she is a nice person but drinks ALOT. Maybe the skinny girl was her idea ;)!


    Horrible statement! Horrible mother! Even if everything she alleges is true, be proud of your daughter and everything she has accomplished through her own hard work. The hard part is not the idea, but realizing its potential, the demand for the product, marketing it successfully and being able to turn that idea into a profitable business. Bernadette should be ashamed of herself for saying such mean and spiteful comments. Gracious she is not. Bethenny’s success is of her own making.


    If she did come up with the idea, this is a horrible way of going about saying the shit. Mommy is a dummy. I dont think Bethenny is a saint though. I give it to her for being a smart business woman even though I dont watch or buy her shit. lol. Good luck with that mommy.


    children copy lots of stuff from parents good and bad..beth’s mom should have come up with the skinny girl idea..give beth credit for putting this idea to work..big deal about jason being too weak for beth..99% of men are too wimpy for her..her 1st boyfriend on rhony season 1 the bald rich guy was a super tweek..


    Wow…glad you reposted! LOL…her mom looks like a frikken corpse!


    I suspect Jason is not weak at all…..he is quiet and he is fairly savvy in front of the cameras. If you listen to Bethenny she even agrees that Jason is not a wimp and that he just is strong but more on the reserved/silent side. Either way, Bethenny will either make her marriage work or not… is up to them both. I hope they survive fame….many don’t.


      I agree with you, MG. I think Jason is to tougher than us viewers give him credit for. I love Bethenny, but lets face it – she is very loud and in your face, so I people assume she mows over him. I may be wrong but I think he is the strong, quiet type. I really hope they make their marriage work – they are very cute together. On another note – that mother of hers – what a desperate bitch!


    I thought Margaritas were fat free?


    Bethenny and Jason have their issues as every single married couple on the face of the earth do! She has repeatedly said that he is the strong, silent type. I have no doubt he can hold his own with her. Opposites do attract and in many ways, they seem to complement each other very well.

    I hope they can work with each other’s differences and be happy together for a long, long time. They each have adjustments to make but they seem committed to doing so. That doesn’t mean it is necessarily going to be easy!

    As for her mother, I do wish she’d shut up and stop embarrassing herself. Everytime she speaks she does nothing but confirm how right Bethenny is to feel the way she does about her.


    Bethany is a fake! I agree with everything her mother said. I have never believed she is a “chef”…..she never cooks, she orders special foods in, what a liar.

    She is trashy, rude to Jason’s parents, rude to Jason and will end up alone, divorced and Jason will get the baby. She doesn’t need a baby. She looks like an old woman, trying to be thin for the cameras.


      obviously her mother is bitter, jealous & venumous. So sad. A real mother would wish her well & be happy for her success regardless of their relationship.
