Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Bethenny Frankel is SUCH a Hero

I haven’t really gotten into how much I LOVE me some Bethenny Frankel on here yet, but now’s the perfect time because homegirl is getting sued for a cool $100 million.

As you’ve probably heard by now, she recently sold her company, SkinnyGirl, for $120 million dollars. That’s a lot of money for just about any self-made business woman (or anyone,) but for a Real Housewife? Good luck trying to top that, Jill Zarin of Zarin Fabrics.

Now that she’s made bank, all the sneaky little rodents who helped her out along the way are crawling back out of their gutters to try and grab a piece of her fortune, and one ex-manager is coming after her for $100 million, saying that since he was the one who introduced her to the liquor reps she grew SkinnyGirl with, he’s responsible for her success.

Bethenny released a statement today, and in true baller-ass bitch fashion, she brought it. She said, “Life is good for me with all the things that are most important, namely family. But let’s be clear, I am a strong woman, and I am not afraid and won’t back down when I’m bullied by something with zero merit. Success is earned by hard work, not taking advantage of others. Unfortunately, one of the signs of success is being the subject of frivolous lawsuits, like this one. This is simply someone with his hand out, who did nothing to earn it, and I am not going to be bullied.”

Damn. She later added, “We are exploring all of our options, including filing counterclaims against these people.”

You GO, Bethenny. I couldn’t be happier for her, her adorable husband Jason or her baby if I tried. Can’t wait to see her shut down this cretin in court.

Matthew Perry’s Going Back to Rehab

This is pretty commendable: Actor Matthew Perry, who previously did three stints in rehab for alcohol abuse and prescription pill addiction, is going back to rehab but not because he relapsed, he just wants to continue his recovery process.

In a public statement, Matthew said, “I’m making plans to go away for a month to focus on my sobriety and to continue my life in recovery. Please enjoy making fun of me on the World Wide Web.”

Basically Matthew’s doing more than just the standard AA and NA treatments. He’s putting his money to good use and aggressively ensuring that he’s living his life sober. He also seems to have a pretty good handle on how the Internet reacts to the news of ANYONE going to rehab, even if they’re not some total fuck up.

Sorry I had to start the day with such positive news, I know that that’s probably not what you were hoping for. ;)

Love It or Leave It: Lady Gaga’s Tri-Colored Hair Don’t

All you skanks out there with two-toned hair should be rejoicing! Lady Gaga has finally out-skanked you with this new tri-colored hair do.

I actually don’t totally hate it. Sure, it’s more of the predictably weird (AKA not that weird at all) shit that we’ve come to expect from Gaga, but hey! Nicki Minaj does similar stuff with her hair, and y’all know how much I love that.

Are you digging on this new look or do you think that it’s just as tragic as her music (except “Born This Way,” which has totally grown on me!)
