Bethenny Frankel Shouldn't Be Writing a Single Parenting Book Already

Eye Roll 10

bethenny frankelBethenny Frankel is good at making money. The woman has become a bajillionaire off of margaritas for chrissake. But should there be a line when it comes to how she rakes in the cash? A point where she says, I dunno, this feels icky? I know it's none of my business how she chooses to earn a living, but I've gotta say: This new rumor I'm hearing about her penning a single parenting book already? Not feelin' it.

RadarOnline is reporting that the former Real Housewives of New York star is already in the midst of writing a book for single moms. A source tells the site: "Bethenny has been writing and documenting her feelings in the beginning stages of the divorce. It will deal with the delicate balancing act that is being a single mom, and the guilt she feels because her daughter Bryn will now come from a broken home, something she never wanted for her little girl."

Look. I feel incredibly bad that Bethenny and Jason are going through all of this. Really, I do. And my heart breaks for their ridiculously adorable daughter. And maybe a self-help book for single moms will be helpful for many women at some point? Maybe writing a self-help book will be cathartic for Bethenny? But: Too soon.

Right now, Bethenny is in the thick of a divorce. I don't think her emotions are fully processed yet, and she has a million and one things going on -- the legal stuff; moving; her talk show; her business. Why write a book now? Doesn't seem like the best use of her time.

Like I said, this is all coming from a "source" at a gossip site -- so, who knows if it's true? I really hope it's not, though. This just feels like a weird thing to do right now. If Bethenny really needs to write things out, there's always a good old-fashioned diary.

What do you think of Bethenny writing a single mom parenting book?

She tweeted this morning that this rumor about a book on single parenthood is totally false.

Why do you keep perpetuating this blatant lie Stir? Bethenny has already clarified twice now that she is not writing a book about divorce or being a single mother because she doesn't have that perspective yet. It would take you but one minute to check Bethenny's twitter and check her direct posts there but you rather keep this lie going.

Steph. Steph.

Her quote from twitter:  "To clear up 1 of many rumors from bottom feeder journalists: I'm not writing a book about being a single mom. I have no perspective yet."

Don't get me wrong, I love Bethenny. BUT, can she ever really have perspective of single motherhood? Nannies, drivers, assistants, Millions in the bank...her "perspective" is something I really wouldn't be interested in.

All I can say is Bethany goes to her shrink to get on the right track which did not work for her, she is so confused, and she is going to document her divorce, come on lets all get real....Bethank may make alot of money but giving ADVICE is NOT her FORTE in LIFE....PLEASE Stop the maddness.....

I love when people call themselves single parent. A single parent is parenting with NO father or NO mother in the all. He wants to be part of his daughters life she is a divorced parent not single.

I agree Steph-she doesn't have a clue. It's a slap on the face to a widow for example.

Jazaz I disagree. A single mother by definition is a mother who is single, regardless of her wealth or social status, regardless if the father is present in the child's life or not, now when that person remarries then they are not single anymore. The term applies perfectly to Bethenny who once her divorce is final will be a single mother and the same can be said about Jason, he also will be a single father regardless if he is receiving a lot of money for child support or if Bethenny sees the child every day.

Nope. Still disagree. Compare yourself to a widow.

  Even at the age of 70, there's always room to learn ( clears throat ) but not from her.
