Bethenny Frankel's Skinnygirl Marijuana Will Spark Competition From the Other 'Housewives'
After announcing her return to The Real Housewives of New York in October, Bethenny Frankel has wasted no time getting back to what housewives do best aside from creating drama, and that is hawking products like crazy. US Weekly reports that Frankel plans to launch a line of marijuana. The reality star will sell her product in Alaska, Colorado, Washington and Oregon, the four states that have legalized recreational marijuana use. According to a source, what will set Frankel's marijuana apart from the rest is that it will be created using a "specially engineered strain of pot designed to not give you the munchies."
Well, she definitely deserves an A-plus for ingenuity. Given the success of Frankel's Skinnygirl empire, combined with the number of celebrities who love pot, she probably won't have any trouble with sales. Another thing we can expect from this is for the other housewives to jump on board and debut some more crazy products of their own. Whether they want to admit it or not, Frankel was the first of the Housewives to effectively use her reality fame to establish her brand, and one by one, several of them have followed suit, some more successfully than others.
Here are 4 Real Housewives who will be the most likely to follow in Frankel's footsteps by debuting another outrageous product.
Glanville often says and does things that the other Beverly Hills housewives deem extremely gauche. She has an unapologetic potty mouth, and she threw wine in Eileen Davidson's face. Plus, there's her tendency to flaunt her celebrity conquests, so I could totally see her founding her own speed dating company. She'd be the CEO but that wouldn't stop her from randomly showing up at events to partake in some speed dating herself.
Considering the flak she receives from her choice of wigs, I'm surprised this hasn't already been done, but since Leakes refuses to be outdone by any of her fellow housewives and likely won't be able to stomach all the attention Frankel will get from Skinnygirl Marijuana, I foresee her expanding her business ventures to include a line of wigs. The catch is that they will only come in one shade called "Blinding Blonde."
If anyone thinks Giudice is allowing her time behind bars to interrupt her cash flow, think again. She was basically the first housewife to bite Frankel's style by coming up with her own cookbook, Skinny Italian. Once she gets wind of the Skinnygirl Marijuana, she'll quickly plot another product to accompany her cookbooks and wines. Perhaps she'll invent an original subtle-tasting wine sauce named Fabuloso. Oops, that's already taken, but she's guaranteed to incorporate the prefix "Fabu" in the name.
Considering her wacky, high-strung personality, Singer could probably benefit from the use of Frankel's newest product. Instead, she'll probably try to steal a bit of her cast member's thunder by creating her own collection of pot that, instead of inducing the munchies, will cause anyone who indulges to develop extreme turtle paranoia and crave endless glasses of Ramona Pinot Grigio.
