Bethenny Frankel Juggles Two Babies – Work and Bryn!

She may be seriously considering expanding her family, but for now Bethenny Frankel is busy with two babies — 15-month-old daughter Bryn Casey and her ever-growing Skinnygirl empire.

“[Skinnygirl] Sangria is like my second child,” Frankel, 40, told PEOPLE during the New York City launch party on Wednesday. “This is my work baby [and Bryn], that’s my real baby.”

Happily following in Frankel’s footsteps, Bryn is already showing a flair for fashion.

“She likes to play with my shoes and play with my jewelry,” the proud mama laughs. “She puts the jewelry on, the bracelets up her arm.”

But in between baby and her work commitments, Frankel still finds plenty of time to keep her relationship with husband Jason Hoppy exciting.

“Lingerie always does the trick,” she reveals, adding Hoppy is “happy” with whatever his wife wears. “It can be 15 sizes too big and it could be brown and he’ll still love it. It’s like what I say to Bryn, ‘You get what you get and you don’t get upset.'”

Are her Skinnygirl drinks actually good? I don’t drink and I’ve always wondered what all the fuss was about. Anyway…love the show! Glad she’s embraced motherhood!

Love her daughters name, and she looks great in this pic. @Mellie, I’ve only tried the margarita and it was pretty good. I’m not normally a fan of original flavored margaritas. Added a splash of cranberry juice & it was great.

Melli they’re nothing to write home about…its just the word skinny. To me it lacks flavor. I rather just have a higher calorie and tastier margarita.

Who is she??????

“you get what you get and you don’t get upset”? great mothering for a 15 month old. She’s spent so much time on TV crying about her own childhood, you’d think she’d TRY to be a decent mother.

She is juggling marriage, business and motherhood and doing a fabulous job. A truly devoted wife and mother like many other women.

Catherine in Tulsa: Your comment is downright idiotic and plain stupid-shame on you.

Did my comment disappear into the twilight zone?

“You get what you get and you don’t get upset” is a kind of cutesy phrase that lots of parents and daycares for kids use. I know a bunch of little kids that say it themselves and laugh… Bethenny most likely does not mean it in a heartless way!!!

@ Anonymous- my kids learned it @ daycare as “you get what you get & you don’t throw a fit” lol!!! 🙂

mellie,
I like both of them a lot. The sangria drink is my preference. I had the sangria for the first time Saturday. They sell out like crazy where I live, have great taste and are low cal! The bottle sells for around $12-$13, which is a great deal. I am very happy!

I am so happy for Bethanny, she was my fave NYC Housewife and the show hasn’t been the same without her, she added some much needed humor. She seems like a good mom, and I think it’s great that she is juggling all of that, she seems to be handling it well so more power to her.

Her margarita drink tastes like a watered down version of a regular margarita. I didn’t like it. I wish we could see more pictures of Bryn! She’s so cute!
