Why there was ever a doubting question mark on Bethenny Getting Married? is up for debate, though one might blame those pesky, undermining Real Housewives castmates. One of the great hilarities of the show was watching Frankel — youngest, skinniest, arguably prettiest, her career advancing by the minute — bullied mercilessly by women who were forced to renew vows, restock closets and redecorate to garner equal camera time. Informed breezily by Ramona Singer that best friend Jill Zarin only liked her because she liked to root for the “underdog,” Frankel incredulously told the cameras, “I hadn’t realized I was this deformed, undateable human being.” When Frankel was chosen for the cover of Social Life magazine, former model Countess LuAnn de Lesseps’ well-placed dart — “Are they going to airbrush you?” — hit home. Visibly rattled, Frankel tried vainly to pry an apology out of this blithe Cruella over an excruciating lunch. The ingenue couldn’t see garden-variety jealousy when it smacked her with her own rising star. But viewers (and savvy producers) could.
Less than two weeks ago on Bravo television, The Real Housewives of New York City took a risky ride on a couple of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). In a scene that lasted for less than 45 seconds, the characters managed to misuse the vehicles in numerous ways. They—and worse, their children—were at a greater risk of injury and potentially death because they lacked helmets, rode tandem and allowed children to drive and ride two abreast as passengers behind the driver.
From 2004 through 2008, there was an estimated annual average of 864 ATV-related deaths in the United States and 141,080 emergency-room-treated injuries. This five-year period consisted of an annual average of 142 reported deaths of children under the age of sixteen. Of those injured in that time period, 40,420 were under the age of sixteen. For this reason, we recommend against the use of ATVs by children as either drivers or passengers.

The Musings of a Fashion Outsider
I tried. I really, really tried. Everyone just went on and on about the damn Project Runway and Tim Gunn’s beautiful mug was everywhere this season. I watched Season 8, even when it hurt, and I am now prepared to admit that I just don’t get it. Tim Gunn I get. It is easy to see why he is so beloved. Had there been way more Tim Gunn, perhaps I would get it more. I enjoyed Mondo and Andy and April but Gretchen was insufferable and totally undeserving of the win. I swear, Tim Gunn, I truly tried to make it work.
But wait just a damn minute, you say. Who are you to judge whether Gretchen deserves to win if you’re an outsider? What the hell do you know from jeggings? Isn’t your favorite fabric Thinsulate? You probably can’t even tell the difference between Isaak Mizrahi and Michael Kors. Fair enough. You, dear reader, are obviously discriminating so let me just go ahead and answer these questions for you before we go any farther. Read the rest of this entry »
