Bethenny Frankel has never been shy about the fact that her childhood was less than warm and fuzzy… and now her mother makes it pretty clear why. Bethenny’s estranged mom, Bernadette Birk, is putting her daughter on blast in a big way.
First of all, she tells Star that Bethenny’s Skinnygirl Margarita idea was stolen from her, but that Bethenny isn’t the type to give anyone else credit. “It goes against her narcissistic point of view.”
She also alleges that Bethenny’s relationship with Jason Hoppy is on the rocks. “He is really too weak for her,” says Birk. “She only puts herself around people who can do something for her. It’s amazing how she turned out just like her father.”
That said, Birk admits that she’s only spoken to her daughter twice in the last ten years. So you’d imagine she knows a whole lot about her relationship with her husband.
