Welp, this is awkward. Bethenny Frankel's got a book in the works called Skinnygirl Solutions, which is supposed to be a modern girl's guide to balancing life, work, and relationships. You know, just your average tome from a reality star about having it all. But now that she's getting a divorce, um, parts of the book have to be rewritten.
Apparently, Bethenny's gotta now go back and revise the sections about "sexing up your relationship" and "making time for relationships, family, and yourself."
Talk about adding insult to injury. When going through a split, most people can take solace in their work since, generally, their career is separate from their love life, but it's just not the case with Bethenny.
Since she made her marriage part of her career -- there's no Bethenny Getting Married? nor Bethenny Ever After without Jason Hoppy -- she's now forced to confront the failure of her relationship on all fronts. Her talk show, her books, her Skinnygirl line -- it's all tied to Jason in one way or another. Not being able to find respite anywhere from your painful divorce has got to be extremely trying.
And literally having to edit the parts of your book where you give advice about how to manage a husband and a career ... oof. It's reliving your failure all over again. Could you imagine re-reading and re-writing your own advice? It'd be like, remember that time I thought I had it all, and now I don't? Good times.
The book's supposed to hit the market in August, but who knows if it'll be delayed due to the rewrites. I wonder if they'll have to change the title. Skinnygirl Irresolution? Skinnygirl Disillusion? Ouch.
Do you think Bethenny should release the book?
