Bethenny Frankel’s Response To $100 Million Lawsuit

Posted by Katie F. on May 13th, 2011


Bethenny Frankel is being sued by her former managers for over $100 million in damages and a share of the $120 million sale of her Skinnygirl cocktail brand. Frankel is now speaking out to let everyone know she won’t back down in the face of the lawsuit.

“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.”

Bethenny also blamed her success for the legal trouble she is facing, claiming that people will do whatever they can to share the rewards.

“Unfortunately, one of the signs of success is being the subject of frivolous lawsuits, like this one.”

Frankel continued to release statements throughout the day, all asserting that those who are suing her don’t deserve anything she has earned. She also mentioned filing counterclaims against them. She’s made it clear that she won’t go down without a fight, so we’ll see what legal action is taken next.
