Bethenny Frankel’s Dating Tips For 2009

On the Real Housewives of NYC, my favorite Bethenny came up with some new dating tips after realizing that while Ramona’s were sound, but perhaps in a different era. On her blog, she wrote a lot but I thought it would be helpful to share this excerpt for you here.

1) No textual relationships.
Once you’ve launched a relationship, it’s fine, but tell a guy you’re not a textual person and they’ll finally call.

2) Think of your vagina as a vase.
Even if they do die, flowers should be sent when courting.

3) Spend weekends and holidays together.
If you’re not spending weekends and holidays together, he’s not your boyfriend.

4) Let the man be the man.
He chooses the restaurant, he absolutely should pick you up for a date and no matter how far out of his way, he must drop you off.

5) Easy on the booze.
Don’t get wasted on the first date, or your promiscuous side will come right out and you’ll end it before it begins.

6) It always ends up the way it starts.
Remember the first phone call, date, the way he treats you because things always come full circle and don’t waste time.

Check out her blog, it’s always a good read.

Kelly vs. Bethenny: Round 1

Watch this, it’s quite remarkable. Who do you think won this little battle between Kelly and Bethenny? Watch it at right around the 30 minute mark. 

I had some trouble posting the video, so click here to see it without compromise. 

Here are a few words that Bethenny has about the incident, published on her BravoTV blog

Kelly came onto the show thinking anyone actually gave a crap about her self-anointed fabulosity. Truthfully, none of us care about her superficial lifestyle, so I think my calling her out is something that caught her off guard. Truthfully, she never had anything against me. I had something against her. She is a complete phony and now she has been exposed and her small circle of New York supporters have now turned on her as well. The emperor has no clothes.

I may be harsh, abrupt and rough around the edges, but for God’s sake, I am real.

Kelly’s “journalistic” vocabulary consists of 2 words: foil and inappropriate. Maybe next week she’ll find some new words. I found it amusing that she told me I needed a “time out” and some parenting. I’ve gone 38 years with no parents, and if I decide to adopt some, Kelly isn’t on the candidate list. Jill and Bobby could be my adopted parents. Hell, I’ll adopt Silex before the Kellamity.

I will never be friends with someone inauthentic and disingenuous. I may be harsh, abrupt and rough around the edges, but for God’s sake, I am real. I don’t care how many “Datelineexclusive” sit down interviews you have with Jill Stuart – your saccharin- twirled-hair smile isn’t fooling me.

America’s. Next. Top. Model. Is…Flat On The Ground?

Oooh, Tyra – sounds like you might want to talk to those girls of yours! Apparently, there was some TROUBLE started outside the Manhattan audition of your next season of Top Model. If my memory serves me correctly, these are all of the short models that you were seeking right? So in watching the video, that could actually be double the number of girls that my eyes see since they’re so small. Perhaps someone actually yelled, “Hot dog stand” instead of “Bomb”, like others are reporting.

Anyway, watch the craziness below.

They’re getting ready for tonight’s big NYC celebration – and they take a quick pitstop for a call to Kathy’s mom and her box of wine. Excuse me, bottle of wine.

Madonna ‘Like a Prayer’ From Sticky and Sweet Tour ’08

Just stumbled across this great video shot in NYC at Madison Square Garden. Having seen it live, I can just say that it’s AMAZING.

Apparently, The Bible Doesn’t Like Anyone…

I just don’t get it anymore (well, that’s neither here nor there) – I mean, I don’t comprehend religious justifications about anything these days. 

Case In Point – Watch this video and tell me what you think

Be forewarned that it’s odd, extensively offensive, requires a semi long attention span, and displays some crazy people who for all you know could sit next to your cubicle on the daily.

Keep an eye out for the look on the face of the innocent bystander lady with a Dasani water bottle who has to cross through the mob about 5 1/2 mins into the protest mob display of aggression in NYC.  Classic!

The former NYC Mayor Ed Koch speaks about the current political race and his support for Barack Obama. I love how he reacts to the “don’t say that because she’s a woman” statement from the interviewer.
