    Bethenny Frankel's Mom Refutes 'Toxic' Childhood Claims | PopEater.com

    I guess her mom is saying not everything Bethenny says is true. She's a professor of design in NYC. Saw a pic and she looks a little like Scary Betty Davis.

    In the People article the reporters spoke with both Bethenny's mom and ex-stepfather. In general her mom denied Bethenny's statements about the mom and the stepfather denied the statements about him, but her mom confirmed most of the statements about the ex-stepfather and he confirmed most of the statements about the mom. They both claim though that the violence (i.e. the statements that concerned them both) wasn't the way Bethenny described it. While there is always the element of there's one persons side of the story, there is the other person's side of the story, and the truth is generally in between, it is pretty typical for someone who was abusive to deny it.

    The one I can think of is Bachelorette's Trista and Ryan.

    I don't have a problem with them letting Bravo film the wedding, or even parts of the honeymoon, since they did have days of privacy. I do wish someone would have panned away when they jumped in the pool nekkid ... lol

    Yeah, but they never really had a reality show together.

    Yeah, beyond this far, I can see being on a reality show causing problems for a couple.

    I would think that it would be more traumatic for a child growing up in this environment - it can scar the bejesus out of you.

    I always thought you couldn't get past it (trauma) if you didn't talk about it. She does quite a bit of talking about it. I remember her bringing up her dad waaaay back maybe in her first episode.

    That's true... but it's not like if you talkandtalkandtalk about it it'll magically go away you know? It's like, you can't make a cake without sugar, but sugar by itself won't give you a cake.

    If you notice though, she doesn't do as much talking about it directly to other people. She'll say things to a camera, but a camera's not going to give you any feedback. I don't think anyone on the show knows the full story. She just says stuff like her childhood was terrible, she raised herself, etc. Never going into details, never exploring it, just stating the awfulness. That's not theraputic, that's dwelling.

    Dwelling is a good word for it. I hope she gets real therapy because the fake TV therapy doesn't seem to be helping.
