So Bethenny Frankel likes her clothes, you guys. A lot. When we interviewed her at New York Fashion Week, the Real Housewives star spoke about her wardrobe in the same awestruck tone that people speak about their children, significant other, or God. According to her, it’s been her primary motivator in life, and is the reason she’s done pretty much everything done, ever.
“My closet is a shrine to be prayed to,” she says. “I waited 40 and a half years for that closet. Everything I’ve ever done, ever cocktail I’ve ever swilled and hawked. Every piece of shape-wear I’ve ever sewn was all to get to the point where I have the closet that I now have.” Wow. What else can you say to that, really? But the outspoken Skinnygirl spokes-lady wasn’t done. “People are coming out of the closet? I want to go back in the closet!”
So there you have it: this lady devoted her life to clothes. But even more importantly, what couture would she rather die than wear? “I wouldn’t be caught dead in Aladdin pants, those Sinbad pants. I wouldn’t be caught dead in acid wash.” She also admits a weakness for a certain fashion no-no. “I am often caught dead in a camel toe. As much as I try to avoid it, and as much as I love a jumpsuit, camel toe is my best friend.” We’re going to take some time come to terms with the fact that we just typed that.
