Decked out in her signature black and red ensemble, Bethenny Frankel was spotted greeting fans and signing bottles of her Skinnygirl creations at the Philadelphia Flower Show on Saturday (March 10).
The 41-year-old multi-million dollar entrepreneur was all smiles at her event while having taken to her Twitter page to keep her followers in the know by writing, “The whole family is en route to philly for the Philadelphia Flower Show. @cookiedabooboo is excited!”
The event comes just after a recent interview with Moira Forbes of Forbes Woman in which Bethenny explained that her newfound wealth isn’t always easy.
After the recent sale of her Skinnygirl brand to Jim Beam for a reported $120 million dollars, the brunette funny girl said, “Money brings out a really vicious side in other people. It surprises me because you always think about people making money and it changing them, you never think about it changing everyone else.”
“Fame isn?t the thing that changed the people around me, but money is,” she added. “People look at you differently. People make up stories about you. People speculate about what you have and what you?ve done and really try and tear you down. I had no idea that would be the case. And I think it?s really despicable. It’s not like I sat at home and shook a money tree.”
Fortunately enough, it seems as though Miss Frankel is learning how to cope, as she dished, “I used to defend myself or say, ‘Oh my god, let me clarify this, now it’s become like roaches. You can’t kill every one.”
