Bethenny Frankel: It Feels Like Something Great Is Happening

Posted: Updated:

Here's something you never knew about Bethenny Frankel:  When she was 13, she competed in the Miss New York pageant.  (And at Good Day LA we have the photos to prove it.)

"Oh, my God," Bethenny semi-protested when Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone showed the photos on air.  "I did one pageant one time."  When Steve commented that she had lots of hair, Bethenny said, "It's short hair, but there's a lot.  And a lot of braces, too."   So when exactly was this?  "Well, I'm 42 now and I was 13, so do the math."

Get out your calculators.

Fun Facts about Bethenny:

  • Worked as a production assistant on "Saved by the Bell"
  • Attended the National Gourmet Institute for Healthy and Culinary Arts
  • Was a contestant on the show "The Apprentice: Martha Stewart"
  • Selected in 2008 to appear on the reality series "The Real Housewives of New York City"
  • Starred in her own reality series: "Bethenny Getting Married?" and "Bethenny Ever After"
  • Appeared on "Skating with the Stars"
  • The creator behind the popular Skinnygirl cocktails
  • Sold her line to Fortune Brands' Beam Global for a reported $100 million
  • Posed nude for a PETA billboard
