Mother of Bethenny Frankel to Daughter: LIAR!

by at . Comments

Bethenny Frankel has described her childhood as marred by alcohol, violence and eating disorders. She's uses this background to garner sympathy from the public.

There's just one problem, according to the reality TV star's mother: most of it isn't true.

Beth Frankel

In an interview with Radar Online, Bernadette Birk says: "She did not come from a broken homeĀ  and her father did not leave her at four years old. I left her father when she was two years old and he did not support us with one penny, no alimony."

Birk admits to being "sick" over Bethenny's lies and adds:

"She went to visit her father for the first time at 15 years old. It was the same time she is now claiming she started drinking and doing drugs. I was never aware she was doing this. Even though she is bad mouthing her father she was always after his affection."

When was the last time Birk saw Frankel? 10 years ago, "when she borrowed my car and then demolished it and she left it in her boyfriend's lot and it got stripped. I called her to tell her and she started yelling at me and hung up... we have never spoken since."

This isn't the first time Bethenny's mom has called out her child for misleading fans. Is it possible to even take a side in this feud? Or can we consider them both losers?


she said she said who ever knows all i know is i like her her husband and new baby love yhe show..


I have to bring this up because it's bothering me! If she came from an alcoholic home and now she's making a fortune on that skinny margarita she is a HYPOCRITE! If her childhood was so bad from alcohol and drugs i think most normal people avoid stuff like that but she thrives on it. Her mom is probably telling the truth!! She is demented!! That's my opinion.


Just remember mothers, children remember things, even when they are very young... so when you do things around young children, always remember.... some of them will remember everything...they are just like a sponge, they soak up everything ....even the horrible things.... Own it Bitch.....!!!




Bethenny I believe you. And I think all the rest of you assholes that are putting her down,need to look in your closet. And Jill Zarin is the biggest media whore there is


The mother was not paid for the interview Get real Karen. Ive seen the mom on many talk shows like ET and she seems very honest and has worked hard all her life. She said she did the best she could for her ungrateful daughter, and this is the thanks she gets. She is getting nothing for her side of the story, so why should we all just believe Bethany. its obvious Bethany is a drama queen and loves the attention. Im glad her mom is speaking up. Its time Bethany stop trying to get sympathy and start telling some truth about herself.


Her mom is probably telling the truth. I saw Bethany in this B rated film years ago, and her acting was terrible. Lets face it, flying lady is correct. She hung on Jill Zarins coat tails adn same with Amarosa to get somewhere, and prob slept with all kinds of producers to get to the top. She is nowhwere near any top of anything. I agree, psych unit soon, she is sooooooo neurotic , I have to turn it off. Soon the hubby will get smart that he is just a baby sitter. I believe the mom, why would a mother lie about her child unless its true. Then we have Jill Zarin and Amarosa telling us the same about her. Sorry, I dont believe Frankel for one minute. A no talent nothing !


I agree with the last comment. Frankel is a real piece of work...She hung on the coatials of her freinds, and then drops them when she no longer needs them..Shes a real bitch! Shes also heading for the phych unit soon!!!!! When you make a deal with the devil you will pay!


Funny, cause Amarosa, reality celeb from Apprentice has said the same thing about Frankel. She says she knew Frankel, way back whwen she was a nobody and caught Frankel up in a lot of lies that later she proved lies. She said Frankel will do anything for attention, and would do anything to be a celeb.
Now she will not speak to Amarosa since she thinks her stuff dont stink. I think Frankel is deluded and has allowed it all to go to her head. Look what she did to her goood freind Jill I see a divorce very soon happening She treats people like they are nothing and who the hell is she ????? her drink stinks !!


whelp mummy dearest claims she knows nothing about the drug use, etc. if the story about her car is true, sounds drug fueled to me! bethanny has come a long way baby. yup being angry at ones absentee daddy, yet still seeking his approval is pretty classic, bethanny didn't invent that.
way to humble yourself and build a bridge back to your daughter lady. in my experience (am an ordained counselor) a child's beef isn't so much about the past, it's that the bizarre behavoir still continues. yes, the childhood was difficult, but the kindness and support NEVER kicks in. as beautifully demonstrated in this article.
