Hi kids, hope you all had a nice weekend. We were juggling no less than 8 sporting events, a bat mitzvah and a birthday party, so now all I want to do is watch bad TV for two days and sip seltzer through a straw so I don’t have to move my head.
But I don’t want to let you down so please allow me a shameless plug post today. When I’m not blogging, I write freelance pieces for various websites. Last week, I reviewed Bethenny Frankel’s novel, “Skinnydipping” for the Associated Press. Now when you Google “skinnydipping,” my name comes up. Good or bad? Hmmmmm.
Regardless, you can read the review here.
I enjoy Bethenny’s reality show on Bravo and find her brand-building inspiring. She has listened to women and created products they want– from cocktails to cleanses. The haters (and there are many) say she is self-absorbed, vapid, and has not earned her success. I say she is devoted to her fans, always honest, and often very funny about her struggles. Just because someone has made a pile of money for being famous doesn’t mean they haven’t worked for it. She’s a natural entrepreneur and a marketing genius.
But novelist seemed like a stretch. Yet somehow, she pulls it off. If you like her, you’ll probably like the book. Take a look at the review and let me know in the comments what you think and whether you would consider reading it.
