Bethenny Frankel Does an Entire Show With No Makeup On -- Is She Nuts? (VIDEO)

OMG 9

carmen electra & bethenny frankel

Whoa! She always seemed fairly down-to-earth beneath her reality TV exterior, but I'm still in shock over the fact that Bethenny Frankel did a makeup-free show. She literally came out without a dab of concealer, blush, eye shadow, mascara, foundation, lipstick, nada -- and she did it with confidence and pride.

Bethenny's aim in ditching the cosmetics for a day was to give women a real picture of what she looks like on a daily basis when she's not all dolled up for TV. And you gotta love her for it. As much as we tell ourselves that celebrities have teams of makeup artists and hairstylists making them look their best, it's still tough not to get envious of how perfect they usually look.

And Bethenny didn't do it alone as far as facing the cameras without anything hiding her skin. Carmen Electra joined her in her little venture, though she did cheat a bit with a few swipes of mascara and a coat of lip gloss. (Can you blame her?)

Check out this video clip to see the makeup-free gals in action.

 

Soooo, this is definitely applause-worthy and they are both so brave and inspirational, but man -- I wouldn't have the balls to put myself out there like that. Maybe I'm just really insecure, or vain, or self-centred, or whatever -- but the thought of going on national television without the slightest hint of makeup on seriously makes me nauseous.

Heck, even heading out to the bus stop in the morning without wearing it is nerve-wracking to me. I'll usually hide behind sunglasses or under a hat if I haven't had time to apply my "face" yet.

And I know that sounds so lame and ridiculous and it's something I probably need to get over one of these days -- but I'm really just not sure where to begin.

Huh. I might be going out on a limb here, but maybe if someone challenged me to go for it on a TV show, I'd muster up the courage to give it a shot. (But only if I could wear a thin layer of tinted moisturizer.)

Would you go on TV without makeup on?

This is so annoying.. Great no makeup!! Why are the fake boobs still in there?!?!?


Please, taking off all that makeup wont help her raitings. She wants to be all natural and proud of who she is and what she looks like. Lets stop the botox and take the DDs out and then she can try this again...

Why do you title your posts like this? In the article you pretend to be supportive but the title sounds shaming and degrading of women. I hate you.

She's a pretty woman regardless, but... are you telling me that Carmen was not wearing false eyelashes? Well, whatever. Bethenny looked fine.

Carmen cheated. Kudos to Bethenny.
