Aug 3, 2012 >> G&F IN TOWN: We catch up with media mogul Bethenny Frankel
Bethenny Frankel is no stranger when it comes to major attention. With over four national TV shows under her belt, a booming business and Bryn, her bundle of pure joy, she’s a pro at working the crowd and still managing to stand straight on her sky high pink heels. G&F contributing writer Annie Del Walsh bellied up to the velvet rope on the red carpet of Michigan Avenue magazine’s event with the mag’s summer issue cover girl. Here’s what the mile-a-minute, do-it-all personality had to say.
Q: You’re a successful entrepreneur, author, mother, wife, and now TV host. What advice would you give for those starting their professional careers?
A: Don’t be too hard on yourself. Where you imagine yourself in 15 years may not be what you expected or it may. You just never know where your experiences with take you: when I was in my 20’s, I took a bar-tending class and now I have my own liquor line.
Q: What 3 products are always in your purse?
A: Skinnygirl Daily Cleanse packet, floss harp, Evian mister and lip gloss.
Q: That’s four! But we’ll let it slide.
Q: We love your style. Who do you dress for? Men, women, media, or yourself?
A: I dress for myself and also for the event. But it really depends on the event. I went to a studio 54 party and I dressed in that style.
Q: When we told our readers that we were interviewing you, they all brought up Bryn. What is her favorite store to shop with Mommy at?
A: She’s happy anywhere! She likes Target and Walmart and she’s only 2. Now she loves the supermarket because she has her own push cart.
