Last Wednesday night I had the pleasure of attending the Calling All My Girls Tour, hosted by Bethenny Frankel, to kick-off her talk show (which premieres September 9). A few weeks prior to that, I received an e-mail from Bethenny's social media specialist. She had somehow come across my blog and said that they loved it and thought that the Bethenny audience would as well. I'll admit I was a little skeptical because I assume that my mother is the only one who actually reads my blog. After a little google research, however, I realized that this was a legitimate event. I was so excited (I have been a Bethenny fan since her days on the Real Housewives of New York). I immediately returned the e-mail and was told that I would be on the VIP list for this exclusive event.
I could hardly wait for the big night. My friend Jen and I, who was my guest, exchanged several texts in the days leading up to the event in regards to wardrobe choices and what we were going to say when we got the chance to meet Bethenny. We could hardly contain our excitement as we sipped champagne and got ready for the event.
Union, a 3 story restaurant with an amazing rooftop. It was the perfect location. When we entered we were given wristbands and "blogger passes" along with a little card that allowed us to meet Bethenny when our phrase was called. Then, we were handed glasses of Skinny Girl Moscato and were ushered to the pink carpet.
Beautifully Nutty. We immediately clicked and spent most of the evening laughing with her.
Bethenny will air weekdays at 3pm on channel 9.
