I have been taping Bethenny since it came out. I love the show, I have to admit that I do speed through some of the show sometimes just due to I am not interested in the topic. But I have to say Bethenny is such a class act. I so admire her. I just downloaded her book Naturally Thin. I could only dream to have a body like hers.
