SKINNYDIPPING By Bethenny Frankel

See if you won this book by checking HERE .



Bethenny Frankel’s debut fiction, which came out the beginning of May is called Skinnydipping, where she bares all – the story of Faith Bridgestone, who heads to LA with dreams of making it big. In this story there’s a reality TV show involved and one has to wonder how much of the real stuff does Bethenny put in Skinnydipping

If you loved Real Housewives, Skinny margaritas and cocktails, and Bethenny in general, you’ve got to check out Skinnydipping! It’s a total roman a clef of her own life, from her early days to making it big – and you know she’s spilling a few secrets along the way!

Faith Brightstone is an aspiring actress just out of college, who moves to LA determined to have it all—a job on the most popular TV show, a beach house in Malibu, and a gorgeous producer boyfriend. But when reality hits, she finds herself with a gig as a glorified servant, a role that has more to do with T&A than acting, and a dead-end relationship. Finally, Faith decides she’s had enough of La La Land and moves back to New York with just a suitcase and her dog Muffin.

Five years later, Faith has finally found her groove as an entrepreneur and manages to land a spot on a new reality TV show hosted by her idol —the legendary businesswoman and domestic goddess Sybil Hunter. Diving into the bizarre world of reality TV, Faith’s loud mouth and tell-it-like-it-is style immediately get her in trouble with her fellow contestants— the delusional socialite; the boozy lifestyle coach; the moody headband designer; and her closest friend, the ambitious housewife who eventually betrays her. Even Sybil is not what she appears.


As the show comes to a dramatic close, Faith discovers that the man of her dreams may have just walked in to her life. Will she choose fame or love? Or can she have it all?


You can watch Bethenny talk about her book, and her new talk show -- which I’ve checked out and it’s really good -- here on The Today Show:

But hot tub and swimming pool are both a yes.

I used to skinny dip all the time. I would wait until it was dark and go out to our pool and jump in. There was nothing better than swimming around in the dark in all my glory. lol I loved the way it felt.

Sadly, my fiance, now my husband took objection to it because he was afraid the neighbors would see so I no longer do.
