It seems like Bethenny Frankel’s new talk show is turning into a verbal boxing ring for women to lash out at some seriously outrageous “celebrity” behavior. Ok, she has some great guests on there that actually make us feel like we’re getting something out of listening to the gossip, but some of her guests should have known better before agreeing to take the couch.
We all know former Teen Mom “star,” Farrah Abrahams – if you don’t, you’re lucky – however, she has built quite the reputation for herself with being 100 percent open about all the work she’s had done (breast implants, lip injection, botox etc) to her body, and for her far less than famous sex tape, she has now gone on the record talking about how she tweezes her daughters eyebrows due to her unibrow… is anyone else speechless?
It always bothered me because I thought her daughter was always one of the cutest babies on the show, but she had the most annoying and unappealing mother. Either way, Farrah went on Bethenny’s talk show and the audience really went at her – check out the following dialogue…
It all began when Bethenny opened the floor up to her audience and one younger audience member needed to confront Farrah on her daughter’s eye brow tweezing,
Audience Member: When you say people tell you to wax and pluck your daughter’s eyebrows, but you genuinely think she’s beautiful, why’d you do it?
Then Farrah went back at her… with some words,
Farrah: I actually got a lot of fan mail from girls – who were younger – who did have unibrows and they only wished that their moms would have helped them.
Then another audience member jumped in – obviously an experienced, older mother…
Audience Member: My head’s going to pop off – I swear. That is crazy. You’re making a little girl believe that without you plucking her eyebrows, she won’t have pretty pictures? She’s four! She’s beautiful!
Then, Farrah said some things and you could just hear everyone’s mind explode.
Farrah: Well, it’s not even pictures and it’s not that I’m telling my daughter she’s not beautiful… and to be honest with you, she was sleeping so, it’s like…
The older woman jumped in again,
Audience Member: Oh my God! So, that makes it better?
FINALLY, Bethenny jumped in and handled the situation with as much grace as possible…
Bethenny: You know, someone just said ‘so much for the no judgment zone, and I don’t invite people on here to beat them up, that’s not what this show is about – it’s really about having a conversation so we can all just kind of get to the next place. So, are you okay?
So, needless to say, Farrah could use some parenting tips. Her daughter is about four years old, so her skull hasn’t even fully expanded for her eyebrows to get a little breathing room in the middle. Doing this to her at a young age is just setting her up for the paranoia of not looking good enough – it should all be the child’s decision, regardless of how overbearing the parent is.
