Bethenny Frankel Sips Tipsy Girl Wine At Sonja Morgan’s Pop-Up Shop After Heated Booze Battle Over ‘Cheater Brand’

Posted on Jan 14 2017 - 11:17am by BeachSpin

What a difference a year makes!

Bethenny Frankel was once spitting nails at her Real Housewives of New York co-star, Sonja Morgan — and now she is toasting to her success.

A year ago, the reality stars were sparring over boozy products with similar names — but now Bethenny has moved on, supporting her friend last Thursday, at a pop up Tipsy Girl launch. The Skinnygirl mogul was even spotted carrying a champagne flute of Tipsy Girl prosecco, as she cheered her reality pal at the opening of the New York City pop-up shop.

Bethenny was seen chatting with cast mate Luann de Lesseps — or rather, Mrs. Thomas D’Agostino. Luann married Tom on December 31st, but  Bethenny was not invited to the wedding. Luann took her Sonja-love to the next level — wearing a red jumpsuit from the woman of the hour’s  clothing line. The entire cast of the show attended to support Sonja, including cast newbie, Tinsley Mortimer. Ramona Singer and her  daughter Avery smiled for the cameras, the 22-year-old also rocking a Sonja original.

Fans of the reality hit will remember that Bethenny skewered Sonja for marketing under the Tipsy Girl moniker, verbally annihilating her on camera. She brought Sonja to tears — labeling her brand a “cheater,” and her friend a “fraud.” She even took steps to trademark the name “TipsyGirl,” but Sonja’s business partner, Peter Guimaraes, beat her to the punch. Bethenny snarked about Sonja’s projects, noting a string of failures — but it soon became obvious that in this case, she was wrong. Bethenny seems to have warmed up to the idea of a little friendly competition.

Filming for the ninth season of The Real Housewives of New York is underway.

    What a shame Bethanny didn’t choke on it.

    • RRRobin

      I keep hoping she did!

  • Marsbars09

    At first I thought, “What the f*ck is B*tchenny doing at Sonja’s wine tasting. Then when the article stated they were filming for season 9 it answered my question.
    Wasn’t there talk recent thread which stated the producers were scraping for story lines for RHNY. The women don’t want to share their REAL lives nor do they seem to want to interact with each other. The lack of chemistry and all these contrived story lines are what is going to do this show in.

    • SME-ComeOnNagleen

      Hey Mars!
      I don’t blame the women in this franchise for not wanting to show their lives. Since bethennys return (and what seems like too much control given to her) this show feels more off than ever. Besides, who would want to be themselves knowing bethenny is going to eventually throw that back in their faces to keep the heat off that married boyfriend of hers?

      • Marsbars09

        And that’s exactly my point. If B*tchenny is the reason the women don’t want to share their REAL lives BRAVO needs to let her go. The show was doing fine without her.

        • MidwestMiddie

          The show could stand to lose quite a few of its ladies and survive or
          possibly soar to the top of the charts. Keeping on these same hags
          is BORING! With no changes made, I sincerely hope the show rockets
          to the bottom of Bravo’s pit. : )

          Happy Weekend, Mars!

          • Marsbars09

            Oh MM! What would we do without your perspective insight? 😉
            I hope you too have a wonderful weekend. It finally stopped raining in Southern California and the sun is out and it’s beautiful!

          • Wishmich

            Agreed. Ramona, Carole and Skeletor need to go. There won’t be a show for long with these cats on it.

        • SME-ComeOnNagleen

          Couldn’t agree more. You are absolutely right.

          • Marsbars09

            Thanks SME!

    • Hey Marsie — happy Saturday! 🙂

      • Marsbars09

        Happy Saturday to you too honey!

  • ohjeez

    Luann looks like she despises Beth in that photo. I don’t know how lu can ever look her in her ugly mug I couldn’t do it.

    • SME-ComeOnNagleen

      Right! If I were Lu, I wouldn’t give Bethenny the time of day.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        Why miss the opportunity to shove her murky yellow diamond in that hag’s face every chance she gets?!? LOL!!

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Jeez! I think B*tchenny is the catalyst of why the cast are hesitant of sharing their REAL lives on the show.

      • ohjeez

        Hi Mars yes why put your ;life on the line when the two stars beth and carole bring nothing to the table

      • Gibney13

        Agreed- if you show Bethenny the slightest vulnerability she will seize on it to use as a weapon.

  • SME-ComeOnNagleen

    Ramona looks great

    • MidwestMiddie

      I think Ramona look awful. She is still wearing those skinny hair extensions.
      UGH!

      • Wishmich

        I agree and her face looks puffy. Too much botox or booze or something, but it’s not a good look.

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    I suppose imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but hell no. Bethenny is a bigger person than I, because I would have iced that plagiarizing bish out!

    • Trippinhhard

      Bethanny don’t own the name Skinny, there were other product name skinny before the CryptKeeper came along.. She’s one unhappy person.. Her mother told the truth on her ADD boney ass.. I never bought her poor girl games..

      • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

        Yes, but they were neither friends, cast mates, or mentors. Big difference. It would be like Brandi opening a new restaurant/bar called “Madam” right next to “Sur”.

        • SME-ComeOnNagleen

          I believe bethenny did know the guy behind skinny cow and actually had a meeting with him regarding her business before it became a anything.

        • Trippinhhard

          Cryptkeeper has NEVER been no ones friend, she used who she could to get what she needed and dropped them like Stank shit.

    • What you talkin’ bout Wilson? LOL! Sonja did not copy anything. She simply partnered with a company that has a similar name.

  • Trippinhhard

    I happy for Sonja and I hope she does well in her new business enterprise.. Good luck Sonja and you’re looking quiet healthy and looking good sober..

  • So glad Sonja is finally getting the camera-time and respect she deserves. Bethenny was disgusting last season and sucked the joy out of the show. I thinking that on the upcoming season we’ll see less Skinny Girl crap after all the complaints viewers voiced.

    • Marsbars09

      I wish we wouldn’t see B*tchenny at all.

  • Karoline

    Avery and the lady behind her are wearing the same dress.

    • Sunflower

      The dresses are from Sonja Morgan’Stanley Fashion Line.
      I guess they are “supporting” her by buying her collections.

  • Sunflower

    Sonja lost some weight.
    I don’t know if it is good or bad… she looks different!
    That brown outfit she has on doesn’t do her any favors either.
    I would love to see her pop-up store!
    CONGRATS to Sonja!!

  • Sunflower

    LuAnn D’Agostino looks fantastic!!
    I don’t see Bethenny… I only see LuAnn!

    • SME-ComeOnNagleen

      Lol. She disappeared behind that champagne flute

      • Sunflower

        LOL..
        “TIPSY GIRL” swallowed the B. up!

  • Athena Panagakos

    “Word on the street” is that Beth is going to try to be human next season. I’m betting against her. She will NEVER be able to pull that off, in my opinion.

    • ohjeez

      that is for sure the plan and she will stick to it i think she loves playing and manipulating the media and narratives. she likes to see what she can get away with

    • Marsbars09

      Agreed. B*tch is such a monster of a woman.

      • RRRobin

        I cannot watch the show as long as her evil skanky azz is supported by bravo.

  • Glooba!

    Anyone wanna bet that BRAVOnny will make some snarky comment about the wine, in her confessional when this segment airs?
    I can just hear her now: “I mean, you know… It was… okay, I guess?”

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Glooba! You know B*tchenny is Ms. Negativity. :/

  • Trippinhhard

    OT: Did anyone watch Married to Medicine last night.. I keep forgetting it comes on, on Friday nights, because that’s my ID Discovery murder night..

    • Marsbars09

      I saw some of it.

      • Trippinhhard

        Was it good and worth watching..

        • the underground train

          I haven’t seen it yet. Bravo will rerun it Monday morning. I’ll see by then if I don’t watch it on Demand.

          • Trippinhhard

            Okay thank you

          • Disgruntled Pickle

            Ah ha! Didn’t know everyone was over here too! *waves* 0/

          • the underground train

            🙋Hey pickles! Yeah I like coming here too. Less traffic so it can be easier to carry on a discussion without filtering through a lot of comments.

          • Disgruntled Pickle

            Good to know! Glad I found ya! xox

        • Marsbars09

          I guess. I’m not really into M2M, but the scenes I found interesting: Lisa’s husband was supposed to go to Hawaii, but I think due to his “work demands”, he couldn’t make it. And I’m sure you know what I’m alluding to. Lisa was very hurt and disappointed.
          Jackie is still trying to reason with her husband about demands on her career. Her husband is really upset that she finds more excuses/reasons to work than schedule time to spend with him.

          • Trippinhhard

            Darren is full of excuses, I feel for Lisa because she’s a beautiful woman.. I remember him being Ebony or Essence as a single doctor looking for love..
            Jackie have dud what a lot of working women do, she feels empty because she didn’t have kids early in her career.. Then after cancer twice, I think her husband said he didn’t want her trying, because the cancer can come back..
            Now she’s upset because her time has passed and he didn’t want to adopt a child at all.. She throws all her being in a job and who in the hell thinks one day a week, will make a marriage work.. She has to learn to cut off work and spend some quality time with Curtis. All working mother experience the same choices, but somehow we make it works…It was a struggle for me, but I had my mother my husband and my brothers help me.. It’s the truth advsome times I traveled with my twins.. It was hard but we made it work and my granny helped also.. But I loved being a wife and mother, because I wasn’t suppose to be able to have children, but you make it work.. My brothers was a great help, because my sister would tell you in a minute, I’m not taking care of NO ONE child..
            When they got to be 6-8 then she would have fun and teach them thing their fathers didn’t do.. They loved her, but baby my sister was a royal bitch and that’s just who she was from little..lol

  • T Loves Martinis

    Lulu is making that ‘really bitch’ face to that witch skeletor, love it.

  • Bryan

    After all that fuss, that emaciated moron is now sucking it up and poor Dirty House Morgan, what was suppose to be some sleek eatery is now a sad and pathetic “Pop Up Shop”

    • Unknown User

      the pop up store is for her clothing line which is now sold in stores like Macys. The restaurant is for tipsy girl wine which did open but in Connecticut in July 2017

      • Bryan

        Toots you are late to this party everyone went home!

  • Sandra Oh

    Hell has indeed frozen over lol

  • Sugar in my tank

    The cameras must be rolling. Bethenasty doesn’t even own Skinny Girl alcohol any longer. Yawn, next..

  • MonaLucy

    Sonja deserves every bit if success that comes her way. She has tirelessly worked, as a single mother, to brand herself. Congrats to her. Barfany Frankelstein doesn’t want anyone to succeed but herself.

    • Marsbars09

      Hey Mona! This is the first time I’ve “seen” you on this site. So glad you can join us. I hope all is well for you.

      • MonaLucy

        My Mars!!!!! All is good. Hope all is well with you too my friend. Happy New Year!

  • TartLemon

    I can see why Bethenny would be less mean and vengeful. The divorce/custody/financials are settled. Her business is successful. She has a LOT less stress. Before, Bethenny was constantly wound up and in attack mode. I still don’t care one iota for LuAnn and hope she doesn’t subject me to having to hear how elegant and sexy she seems so intent on convincing everyone of. Anyone who actually is elegant and sexy does not need to say so.

    • Marsbars09

      B*tchenny’s off screen life should not have impacted her on screen life. Her co-worker’s did not deserve her abuse just because she was going through hell in her own life. If B*tchenny couldn’t co-exist with the ladies in healthy way she should have never re-joined the show.

      • TartLemon

        Huh? This is REALITY tv and you think their real life should not affect their screen life? I don’t get it.

        • Marsbars09

          Sorry, that didn’t come out right. B*tchenny’s rage may have been real, but the reasons behind it weren’t revealed. All we knew was that B*tchenny was “p*ssed” at Sonja for trying to ride the coattails of SG, she was “disturbed” about Jules eating disorder, and she was obsessed with Lu’s sex life. All of that was apparently a smokescreen or deflection of the REAL life hell you described in your comment.
          I don’t know if you are aware, but I think there was a recent thread on this site regarding how the producers are having a very hard time coming up with story lines for the ladies because they are hesitant to share their REAL lives on the show. I think you can thank B*tchenny for that.
          I hope my explanation makes sense to you.

  • Vogue

    Its funny that Bethenny is not only acting like know it all and every thing that comes out of her mouth is insulting and judgemental. In addition to all the nonsense she says, her voice sounds like a nails on a board😂😂 I mean if there is a god,he probably thought let’s give that idiot some annoying voice so she may shut her mouth up, not counting on she may make her business talking shit about others and lecturing them. Luann looks like she just wanna escape and shut her up😂😂😂

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    As if anyone needs Beth’s stamp of approval.
    Bethnasty couldn’t stop it so she has no choice but to act like she is supportive. Besides, she is never one to miss out on a chance to appear on camera.

  • tsc

    Even though I live in NYC, if the RHONY delayed airing for two years, I would not miss it. I would miss Dorinda and Sonja and that is it.
