Is Bethenny Frankel the Reincarnation of Xena, Warrior Princess?

Ok, I know this is far-fetched (and it is just for fun so please don’t take it too seriously) but I have a rather wild imagination, and you have to admit that like Xena, Bethenny takes no prisoners.  The idea hatched the other night while I was watching Real Housewives of New York City.

They have many things in common, I will list them so you will see my reasoning;

  1. Xena uses brains more than weapons, in fact it is an early lesson for Gabrielle at the beginning of the series.  Bethenny is all about brains, she uses her brains to fight every battle and she usually wins, just like Xena.
  2. Xena’s preferred weapon is her Chakram, Bethenny is her mouth (not in a bad way. Really, I love to listen to her talk her opponents down, it is one of the intriguing traits of Bethenny.)  How can those weapons have anything in common? Well they both can be set to either hurt or kill, they are both a great warning to all enemies (people fear both and try to stay away from them, unless they are a foolish Warlords or Warlord types.)
  3. They are both all about empowerment of women.  They both believe that women can do anything and should help each other, not tear each other apart.
  4. They both work toward the greater good, though in different worlds and styles, they both have helped in their own ways.
  5. They have become very successful in their goals, through hard work and brain power.  They are both great a strategy and they really look at things analytically so that they can help and advise others.
  6. Finally, they are both striking to look at, they both have their own style and they use it to reach the goals, as an entry point to get in, then overpower the enemy with their brains.

So you see it was not that far-fetched, you just have to look at it from the right angle.


Bonding Through Bethenny


To be honest my Mom has never heard of Bethenny Frankel. She does not watch reality tv and will not, ever. She knows what Real Housewives of New York is but has never seen it. But my Mom does like talk shows especially when children are the topic and there is a lot of fun involved.

I have been watching Bethenny’s talk show and my Mom just started to watch it with me so we would be together. Bethenny as you know speaks really fast and that was a bit of hump for my Mom to get over. But slowly she started to get it and we have been enjoying the show together.

Today’s show was something my Mom really liked. It was so funny and a bit out of control with the audience. She found it amusing but the part that touched her was when the guest, Olympic Gold Medal Winner, Gabby Douglas came on the show to help three young girls who love gymnastics with the new tablet so they could watch it anytime they wanted to. Then to top if off Bethenny ended up paying for a year of classes for the three young girls.

My Mom who loves kids teared up and said that this is the best show Bethenny has done yet.

Thank you Bethenny,
