In a supreme act of discipline, I sat through the June 10 premiere of “Bethenny Getting Married?,” Bravo’s spinoff from “The Real Housewives of New York City,” featuring pregnant/engaged participant Bethenny Frankel.
Proving that nothing is off-limits, Bethenny drags the camera along to her first meeting with a shrink (would anyone trust a shrink who would pretend to ignore three guys with boom mikes?), where she talks about her screwed-up family, as if that’s something new. Later, she throws a housewarming party, only Jason — who goes out of town on business — gets stranded by bad weather and can’t attend — even though a bunch of his friends are coming!
Despite her pre-party agitation, however, even Bethenny admits afterward that her fears were unfounded and that there was “no drama whatsoever.”
She’d make a pretty good critic, since that’s also an accurate description of the show.
