You probably heard about how late last month, after her appearance on Bethenny Frankel's talk show aired, Teen Mom-turned-porn star Farrah Abraham launched a verbal attack on the talk show host, and it was anything but pretty. It was also completely strange, because leading up to the airing of the show, Farrah seemed perfectly happy with her experience on Bethenny. But because Controversy is Farrah's new middle name, she turned on a dime, spewing about her experience on the show.
While Bethenny had no obligation to weigh in, she did address the brouhaha today when we got to catch up with her during a special Q&A after one of her tapings.
When asked by Wetpaint if she had spoken to Farrah since the taping of the show, Bethenny confirmed she had not, elaborating:
[I like to] have a conversation with someone that I think will show a different side [of them] or a different conversation, and reflect human behavior, but a lot of those people are controversial for a reason, and they like to be controversial. So the minute that they leave, they start leaking press items to make it live longer, because that's what their brand is, being controversial, and continuing to do that. Another type of guest isn't going to do that.
Bethenny then clarified that only certain celebs are obviously zeroed in on stirring things up:
It's really the people that are known for being controversial, there's a reason for it, and they leave, and they kind of plant seeds, so they will grow to make it 15 or 16 minutes. And it's okay. I get something out of it, I guess they get something out of it. It is what it is.
Love her cool, collected 'tude and obvious business savvy. Seriously, why shouldn't she feel that way? With an awesome new talk show and the super-successful Skinnygirl brand (shapewear, food, drinks, wine -- the works!), etc., Bethenny doesn't have the time or need to dwell on the drama that someone like Farrah is drumming up to keep her name in the news. Really, she has so much to be positive about and focus on that there's really no room for nonsense. And that's just one of the reasons she's worth paying attention to, while "people that are known for being controversial" are not.
What do you think about Bethenny's response to the Farrah controversy?
