In case you were wondering how something could be low-cal, alcoholic and all-natural without tasting like rubbing alcohol, the answer isÃ¢â‚¬Â¦it can’t. Real Housewives Of New York vet Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl margaritas are off the shelves in Whole Foods, allegedly after the company found out the drinks contained the preservative sodium benzoate, “This product had been offered in about a dozen of Whole Foods Market’s 310 stores. After discovering that it contains a preservative that does not meet our quality standards, we have had to stop selling it,” their spokesperson told E! Online. Frankel fired back, “With all due respect to Whole Foods, we were in a dozen of their stores and have decided not to continue in these stores. They represent an infinitesimal fraction of our business. We are, in fact, the fastest growing spirits brand in the U.S. We were bound to piss someone off and everyone loves to try to tear down a success.” Dang girl, how many of those margs did you have before releasing a statement like that?
In addition to her thin-person booze kerfuffle, Bethenny Frankel defends Bravo over allegations that the network could bear any responsibility in RHoBH‘s Russell Armstrong’s suicide. “It’s preposterous to blame a TV show for someone’s suicide. When the show started filming, I’d heard he wasn’t so kind to his wife. But I know nothing about them,” Frankel told USA Today. Hoo boy. Controversy like this makes us want to stop by Whole Foods and pop open a fewÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.oh wait a minute. Nooooooooooo!
