We expect fake breasts from The Real Housewives of New York City.
But fake fiances?!?
According to a source close to Bethenny Frankel, the reality TV star isn't actually engaged to Jason Hoppy. Simply put:
"The engagement is fake," an insider told Fox News, implying that Frankel's rep started this rumor in order to generate buzz for his client's reality show.
But that development is also in question, as Bethenny is on the verge of getting sued.
Life has not been a beach for Bethenny Frankel this week.
Reportedly, Frankel was set to anchor a series titled The Skinny and the City. However, Tanya Zuckerbrot, - a registered dietitian and author of The F Factor Diet - runs the weight loss website www.skinnyandthecity.com. She takes issue with Frankel's use of her trademarked name.
“I have always felt imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. That being said, we are taking the protection of our brand and trademark extremely seriously,” Zuckerbrot said.
Wow. Who would have thought that Frankel lacked any original ideas and unique talents? Oh. Right. Everybody.
