Bethenny Frankel is considering filing a counter suit against her former manager, *Douchebag* Doug Wald.

Big fat lawsuit: Bethenny Frankel sued for $100 million over Skinnygirl Margarita deal

The way *Bethenny Frankel* tells it, the $100 million lawsuit filed against her by a former manager is much ado about nothing.

*Douchebag* Doug Wald, the co-president of Raw, where Frankel was once a client, has alleged he’s entitled to a share of the profits the reality star made from selling her *Skinnygirl Cocktails* line shortly after she fired him.

“Unfortunately, one of the signs of success is being the subject of frivolous lawsuits, like this one,” Frankel told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. “This is simply someone with his hand out, who did nothing to earn it, and I am not going to be bullied.” *You tell it, girlfriend* ๐Ÿ˜€

The former *”Real Housewives of New York”* cast member, *New York Times Best selling author of “A Place of Yes” and STAR/Executive Producer of Bethenny Ever After* reportedly raked in a whopping $120 million for the sale. Wald is seeking a 10% cut in addition to $100 million in punitive damages.

But Wald may end up actually owing Frankel money if she proceeds with a lawsuit of her own.

“We are exploring all of our options,” she told THR, “including filing counter claims against these people.”

Frankel further told People that despite this hiccup, life remains “good,” particularly because her family โ€“ husband Jason Hoppy and 1-year-old daughter Bryn โ€“ are doing well.

“But let’s be clear, I am a strong woman, and I am not afraid and won’t back down when I’m bullied by something with zero merit,” she told the magazine. “Success is earned by hard work, not taking advantage of others.”

*And, That’s Why I Love you Bethenny!* ๐Ÿ™‚

FYI: MY Thoughts Are Marked with the *Star* ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow! Here I sit, waiting for *MY Favorite Reality Star* Bethenny Frankel, to walk across the stage, and Do “One” of the things, she does best, Talk. ๐Ÿ™‚

Songs are playing, before Our New York State of Mind, Skinny Girl Margarita Loving, Getting Married, What?, NOW, Real Housewife, Baby Having/Loving & Living Life Happily, Ever After, *Phewww*… Appears.

“I Got a Feeling, Tonights Gonna Be a Good Night”, Begins playing, and ignites the Packed out House. Blasting in the tone to set the scene, and Start the night…”Tonights gonna be a good night!”

*C’mon girlfriend, Grandmas butt is getting Numb*
Bethenny, Ever After *FINALLY* Enters the Room, From the Back of the House. It’s just like Her, to Come in for all her fans on the back rows to get pics . *Im so friggin Excited*
Waving & smiling, Bethenny enters the stage, and Moves into Our World…”ALL is Good.”

*Let’s Go!!! This “Grandma” is Ready for Her “Skinnygirl Night Out”* ๐Ÿ™‚

Bethenny looks great. She’s Petite, slendor & looks very healthy (For all that thought she didn’t, SHE DOES ๐Ÿ™‚
She’s wearing Jeans, Sexy-Red Corset Top, trimmed in Black, and short Jacket. She tells us, Her top Is an Omage to Kim Zolciak, then lifts her Boobs Up, Cause Hers aren’t Mellons, ala..Kim’s.
She’s wearing her “Trademark” Black Stilettos, and is proud to say, she found on sale @Bloomingdales (I think) for $79.95 (Never pays full price for anything ๐Ÿ™‚ *Even more of a reason for ME to Love Her* ๐Ÿ™‚
(*Ask her, Who Shoes made by..I forget, Hey I can’t remember EVERY Detail*:)

On this Friday night, March 11th, 2011…It is the Day after the Horriffic tragedy in Japan. Bethenny shares her heartfelt feelings, and encourages us all, to do whatever we can to help. Whether it be Donations, or keeping everyone affected, in our thoughts, and prayers. (*Very fitting, Needful, and Touching Moment*)

She begins with a sip of her Skinny Girl Margarita, that’s been placed on a “Bar Style table”, includes a vase of red roses & babys breath, A bottle of her popular *Can’t keep on Shelves* Skinny Girl Margarita, her #1 Best selling books (*Which she Never picks up, for self promotion*) and, a glass of water. *she never touched* ๐Ÿ™‚

After much of her amazing, wit & humor is unleashed, She tells us of the setup for the night, then Digs her Stilletos in deep.

*Nothing, NOTHING is OFF Limits, and She tells us so*

Questions start popping out of the audience, before girlfriend can even get a swig of her SG-Margie, Bethenny doesn’t mind. She answers every question. *girlfriend Rocks this chit*

*Bethenny, Bravo & the NY Housewives*

(More Questions) The juiciest one was, “What did Bravo think of her NOT returning to Real housewives of New York?” She laid it out, Said, Bravo was VERY UPSET with her for NOT RETURNING *I could tell from the look on her face when she said it. *Bravo Was pissed* *Good for you B, Showed em what your made of, Amazeballs ๐Ÿ™‚ You go with your Bad Azz Self*
She adds that She & Jason Both felt it was as if she wasn’t being “True to Herself” if She continued in RHONY, It was…Just Not Her “Reality”..

*Jill Zarin..Ugh*

Jill Zarin, is Still a Sore spot for Bethenny, she was asked “If she had to choose who she hated most, between Kelly & Jill, which one would it be?” After pondering for a minute, She says, She would have to say Jill, because Kelly is truly crazy, and she DOES Mean CRAZY (As in, She truly believes that Kelly has some ?? “Mental Issues”) *Who the eff Doesn’t think that?*

Jill has been mean to her not only publicly, through the media, but in a personal, private way as well. *Ouch.. Didn’t think Jill could be MORE hateful, NO.. Wait.. Yes, I Did*
Bethenny does add, She truly doesn’t have hate for her, Kelly or anyone for that matter. “Its just not in me to hate” she says. *God Bless you girlfriend, you’re skins thicker than mine, but I dig where you’re coming from* #NOH8 ๐Ÿ™‚

*Bethenny Ever After*

She Enjoys, Bethenny Ever After, Schedule isn’t that Bad, its Having ALL the people (Up to 16) in their tiny apartment off & on, That drives her Nuts.. *Would crack me too, I feel you girl*
As She says, “It is, What it is.” But, Strict Schedules are made & yes, its Insane, but Wouldn’t change her life now, for anything. Part of that Scheduling includes,

*Mondays, Mommy & Bryn*

MONDAYS, and Mondays are ALWAYS, Mommy, and Bryn Day. They go out to lunch, or just do whatever they feel like doing on their Day ๐Ÿ™‚ *I Love that part ๐Ÿ™‚ Our Bethenny, Has definitely been STUNG HARD by the Mommy Bee & it Glows*

“A Place of Yes – 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out of Life”

Bethennys New Book “A Place of Yes” is due for Release on March 22nd, 2011. She says, “You all saw me burn the first book in the BBQ, Right? Says she felt that So many things happened in her life, after writing it that there was no way she could let it be “A Place of Yes”. She had grown so much emotionally, physically while pregnant with Bryn & got married. She had so much more to put in the book, to get it to “A Place of Yes”, And Now its there. She Wrote the Dedication In “A Place of Yes” to Her FANS, read it to us. Very touching, brought tears to my eyes. It’s evident how Much Her Fans truly mean to Her. She Read it, from her heart, and with a sense of pride & happiness that she had dedicated it to her fans. ๐Ÿ™‚

She talked about, a lot of the chapters titles & I’ve gotta say, I can’t wait to read it, It Sounds Awesome. *of course, you knew that’s what I’d say* *its true* ๐Ÿ™‚

*Cookie-DaBooBoo & Bryn’s Kitchen Chaos*

She was asked, if she had thought or planned to Write a Childrens Book, She says (Excitedly) YES, (Describes for Us)
Would have Caricatures of “Cookie/DaBooBoo & Bryn” titled (roughly) Cookie & Bryn in the Kitchen or DaBooBoo & Bryn’s Kitchen Adventures/Chaos. Can you imagine, she says.. Drawings of Cookie wth flour on paws, face, Nose & Same for Bryn (*LOVE THIS IDEA*) She’s kind of burn out on food books, serious or about herself. ๐Ÿ™‚

*Julies job title*
“Coordinator of Chaos – COC…”Cock”

(she said the word “Cock” always comes in somewhere…lol) B says, can you imagine.. “Ask my Coc, this or that” lmao..
*Everything Leads back to the Cock, She Says*…LOL:)
*Btw, Congrats Julie.. I think you’re an Awesome, COC ๐Ÿ˜€

*Max..Oh No You Didn’t* (Sorry! but..dude, You asked your Boss’ Husband, at Skinnygirl party for a condom?? (Had to throw that in, after watching last nights episode of #BEA) ..Max, got “Some”, Balls. Probably Little ones, but Dude!! *smh*)

*Max WAS fired*
She felt he wanted the job, because of the “Limelight” & She tells him, Hey..”This is My Business, I’m Running from This (Home) Office..”He (Max) didn’t take it Seriously” So, she Fired Him.. (*Good for Her, NO Slackers work for B*)

She “Loves” people who Show their “Passion/Priority/Discipline…”Gonna Do My Damn Best at My Job” type of people (In General) & Whom she Hires to work for Her.

*Skinnygirl Cocktails*

She Asked what we thought of “Different” Skinny Girl” Drinks (For New Ones She’s ADDING…Soon) All With the Name “Skinnygirl” *of course*
White sangria, Mojito, Sweet tea vodka (Crowd loved this, Hey..We’re Southerners) ๐Ÿ˜€ Lemonade and Pomopolitan (Pomegranite & Vodka)
Feedback from the crowd was, Nice ๐Ÿ˜‰
*I’m thirsty for the Sweet tea Vodka, Now* ๐Ÿ˜€

*Mommy & Bryn*

Talked about Her Relationship with Her Daughter & How Much She Loves Bryn, Being a Mommy, Watching Her Grow, and (As She Says) Growing Way too fast, as “WE” (Fans) all told her it would.. “She’s growing to fast” Pulls Up in Crib, says.. MamamamaMa… Crawls round everywhere.. She & Jason hit the “Baby Lottery” with her, Never a problem, Sweetest, Best Baby..Until few Weeks ago, Out of nowhere the #’s 666 Appeared on her forhead, for 2-3 days Was as if “Whole Other Child” then “Poof” Back to Sweet self ๐Ÿ™‚
Bryn goes to bed at 7pm til 7am.. *Dang, they did hit..the Baby Lottery* ๐Ÿ˜€

*My Thoughts*

*Bethenny, Was so comfortable, sitting on that stage, talking to & with all of Us (Fans), sipping her SkinnyGirl Margarita.. She Smiled & Laughed all Night.. Her Humor Was Spot on.. She’s in her Element & it shows.. Sharing Her Wisdom & Life adventures with Us all.. She says she Now has found that She “WAS Wrong” Who knew, she says, All these years I thought I was a “Guys girl”, Not many girl, friends in her life but has now realized she’s definitely a “Girls, Girl”..She’s More at ease with it, the hanging out & chit-chatting part of it.. *I Personally feel, its Due to her NOW Being a Mother. She Has more of a Bond with Us “Women”, than She Ever Imagined she would, or Could*.. (Could See the Look of Peace, Contentment & Happiness on Her Face, Now Knowing the Fullness, Fulfillment She Has from it..”SHE’S AT PEACE, HAPPY, COMFORTABLE…FINALLY, AT HOME, Within Herself.. Beautiful to See that Countenance on Her Face… “Its The LOOK of PEACE, JOY, LOVE & CONTENTMENT”*
