Bethenny Frankel Introduces Daughter to the World

by at . Comments

Let's just get this part over with:

In an ideal world, we'd never see a photo of Bethenny Frankel's daughter. This reality star would resist the urge to profit off her newborn, turning down offers to pose with her for national publications because that's just exploitive and wrong.

Bob and Brooke

That important point made, let's also face it: daughter Bryn Casey Hoppy is so gosh darn cute!

Frankel shows off the tyke in the latest issue of People, telling the magazine about her 30 hours in labor, eventual c-section and how Bryn "came out like a doll. It was amazing."

Bethenny says she and husband Jason Hoppy named their child after the latter's brother Bryan, who died in a car accident 19 years ago. When they told Jason's parents about it, “Jason’s mom was hysterical, crying. They couldn’t believe we kept it secret.”

Frankel describes Bryn as a "good baby" and adds:

“We’re so thankful and lucky to have a healthy baby. This is the new me now.”

It just wouldn't be Bethenny if she didn't conclude with a note about herself, would it?

How sad that so many of you think you have the answers about Bethanny or any of the women on Housewives of New York. If you don't know them personally and closely...you don't know them. You are getting a minute (pronounced my-nute)piece of their lives. They are all out to get all that they can get as many people are...Personally I love Bethanny's dry sharp humor. I admit mine is a lot like it. Can't take the heat...get out of the kitchen.

BETHANNY WAS NOT HOMELESS, JILL LET HER STAY IN THE HAMPTOM'S FOR A FEW WEEKS 2 YEARS AGO. SHE HAS LIVED IN THE SAME APARTMENT FOR YEARS, SHE IS MOVING WITH HER NEW HUSBAND TO A LARGER APARTMENT.
JILL IS THE ONE THAT TOLD BETHANNY SHE WAS TOXIC AND THEY WERE DONE. EVERY EVENT SHE WAS AT AND JILL CAME, SHE LEFT THE ROOM,
SAYING SHE COULD NOT STAND TO LOOK AT HER. BETHANNY HAS ALWAYS STATED FROM DAY ONE, THE SHOW WAS A PLATFORM FOR HER BUSINESS. SHE DID NOT MARRY A RICH OLD MAN, LIKE MOST OF HER CASTMATES, SHE MADE HER MONEY ON HER OWN, SHE WORKED VERY HARD TO GET WHAT SHE HAS. SHE WANTED TO FIND AND MAN AND HAVE A CHILD. ALL OF HER DREAMS HAVE COME THRU. GOOD LUCK WITH HUSBAND, BABY, BUSINESSES AND YOUR NEW SHOW. BETHANNY YOU GIVE WOMEN HOPE THAT THEY CAN HAVE IT ALL....

I hope that Bethanny spares her daughter the tongue lashing she gives to literally everyone around her, except Jason. Her verbally abusive habits don't nec. change just because she is a mother - in fact, what she brings to motherhood is herself - her personality - her way of dealing with others. Not good for a little girl growing up. And Bethanny needs to be nice to Jason, since the only other person who would take her in is Jill, and Bethanny made it clear that once she doesn't need you, you're out. Friends don't stick around only to be used - Ramonoa is right, B. doesn't have real friends because she doesn't know how to be a real friend, again, except Jason.

"Jason’s mom was hysterical, crying" probably because her son married that lantern-jawed psychopath and then procreated with her. I would be hysterical too.

Good for Chefenny! I'm surprised she didn't sell pictures of her father's wake to People too.

@Georgia, I'm actually not one bit angry and bitter. As you have said, "People are allowed to express their opinions", and I'm just saying you are one twisted indivudual who obviously love seeing the worst of people. You see her as "cold, classless,[with] mean sarcastic humor." while being cold classless and sarcastic yourself. I just find that hilarious. And for disclosure, I don't work in entertainment industry, I work in investments, have nothing to do with Bethennhy. Just live in NYC, and love watching the show. All I wanted to do is point out that you probably are not aware, that people around you probably look at your every move and words as cunning, calculative and strategic, as you look at the world and someone like Bethenny. I'm sure you look at the world that way, because you are that way. It's just the way this world works. What goes around comes around. Just Say'in. and How's that Georgia?

@ Georgia, And one more thing. I majored in finance in b-school, and "strategic" thinking is a must for anyone going into business. I'm glad Bethenny is thinking "stretegically", unlike millions who goes into business with ignorant mindset and calls for bankruptcy few years later. Again, I always feel ignorance makes people insecure and scarcasm is just a mask for exactly that. Just as you focus on only the negatives views on people, I'm sure everyone will look at you the same way. You put out what you receive.

Actually she did not pose for Playboy. In fact she actually stated the reason that she would never pose for Playboy is because it would do NOTHING for her career, she looks at Playboy like a desperate attemt to save a career (obviouly she's talking about Kelly) so do your research please!!!

it is just sad to see people slamming her for posing with her baby, very desperate excuse to hate on ANYONE...it really says alot about how bitter some people are....pick another reason to hate her other than that, or even her contributions to an animal rights organization (even if is run by crazy fanatics)...she is a reality show star...her whole life is on the table, for everyone to see, as are all the other "stars" you have referred to, the maternal lives and their infant's lives will be a part of their shows...this is their choice & it is paying and providing for their new families very handsomely...it is very doubtful that these babies would object to their parents making money for them and their future!! The crazy attacks constant use of "expoitation" as an excuse to hate on "reality stars" is just silly....you dont want them to be stars....stop reporting about them as such...

@frank. point well taken. was not aware of these facts, but I would wonder if everyone who shares/shared the cause of PETA knows/knew of these facts and actions when they participate. I donate money to good cause even if I know there are frauds out there, you only lose if you let evil intents deter goodwill. But definitely must be vigile in trusting organizations/people with your good intentions.
