MORE Lies As Told By Bethenny Frankel! Skinnygirl NOT Sold For Tens Of Millions!

| Filed under: Legal MattersBethenny Frankel


Get Maury in here with his handy-dandy lie detector. We've had enough of these shenanigans now! This woman is spouting off falsehoods left and right … allegedly.

By now you've probably heard about all the drama surrounding Bethenny Frankel's Skinnygirl franchise. Well, the drama continues as it seems Bethenny LIED about how much $$$ she snagged up when she sold the franchise. She had told friends that the label went for a cool $120 million, but newly released financial statements from the company tell a very different story.

According to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission quarterly report form, Fortune Brands, Inc. actually acquired the business for no more than $8.1 million, a rather drastic difference in change! The company's website states:

"In March 2011, we acquired the Skinnygirl ready-to-drink cocktail business. The acquisition included inventory and identifiable intangible assets. In addition to goodwill, we recorded contingent consideration, which is based on the achievement of certain sales targets. In future periods, the Company may be required to record contingent consideration in an amount not in excess of approximately $25 million. Any change in the Company’s estimated liabilities for contingent consideration will impact operating income in future periods."

Well, well. That settles it then. Caught in another lie, B!

Or maybe the other $112 million is floating on that boat lost at sea!

You know, this is all going to make for one entertaining season of your Bravo show. You might be a liar, but you're going to make a killing from it! Clever girl!

  5. 5

    everyone that I meet who has tried it says it tastes disgusting and that they'll never buy it again- most poured it down the drain they said
    so I'm not even wasting my money to try it

  6. 6

    Anyone who knows anything knows that her little Margarita company would never sell for anything close to 120 mil.

  7. 7

    She never said that figure knucklehead!!! That was just the word on the street! She never SAID any number, therefore she never LIED!

  11. 11

    $8.1 million is a helluva lot of money to me, who gives a shit if the bitch lied

  12. 12

    Everything I read, she had no comment about how much money she sold for.
    I'd check facts first!

  13. 13

    Here is what kills me about this story.. BETHENNY NEVER ONCE confirmed or denied the amt she sold skinnygirl for. NEVER.. So its NOT her fault if someone else printed a number of 120 mil and it really was 8 million if that is the case too. The dickhead from News of the world started all this as well as that other fucktard from the Jewish paper. He cant stand Bethenny.

  16. 16

    And she is laughing all the way to the bank either way. SO WHO gives a shit.

  17. 17

    Only a moron would believe anything that comes out of this morons mouth. How can anyone want to look or drink or wear what this ugly skank is. Just look at the ugliness Yak yak

  18. 18

    one can lie by omittion so not that I care but I am sure her housewives find this quite amusing not to mention being on the cover of time for her great business venture tells me that time magazine doesn't look at any bank statements or contracts before putting someone's mug on their cover. 8.1 million..can't jennifer aniston make that in one movie although that would be overpaying her!!

  19. 19

    I cannot stand this loud mouth woman. She is the female version of Rosie O'Donnell!

  20. 20

    Perez, you're such an azz! I get it, you hate Bethenny, but love Jill & Kelly. I've seen all her interviews and she NEVER ONCE said she made 120 million, that was just speculation from the get-go. You're so full of shyt, I wish I could punch you in the face, followed by one hard blow to the neck. Go eat a vagina!

  21. 21

    Contingent consideration is profit share you dumb fuck. No where in this statement is purchase price mentioned. This clause means she share of revenues will be capped at 25M. That is different from purchase price, which again, IS NOT MENTIONED. She very well may did get paid 120M. Perez, go to business school, or kindergarten, or something you fat fucking fuck. This from the dumb fuck who can't hit spell check before he uploads his blog.

  22. yeez says – reply to this


    That basically says that if the business does well in the future, Bethenny will make additional money, above and beyond what she sold the business for, but not above $25 million. That doesn't list any sale price at all, and therefore, does not prove that she lied about anything…even if she came out and said she sold it for $120 million.

  23. 23

    Clearly this quote is from the commitments & contingencies section of the financial statements. Get your facts straight.

  24. 24

    i find it border line disturbing that you act like 8.1 mil is 1 dollar bill

  25. 25

    Who's more annoying, Kim KarTRASHian or Bethenny?

  26. 26

    She is so gross.. I tried watching her show but I just wanted her to shut up… constant whining, bitching, complaining.. it’s like nails on a chalkboard… cant stand hearing.. "i am a victim" for one more second.. puke….

  27. 27

    She's very intelligent - and tactical, but has always come across as very rational and reflected. If she lied, which is possible, there is no doubt that it wasn't random. That's for sure. Fake it to make it, as they say.

  28. 28

    Bethenny never said D I C K about the earnings of Skinnygirl, she was not allowed to quote the selling price. If "others" inflated the $$$ she of course stayed silent, who wouldn't, it's good for business! But she's not a LIAR, others lied for her!

  29. 29

    Perez just for once can you check the fact before you wrote something stupid???? Bethenny never mentioned anything about 120 million $. You are the one Perez!!!! She is too smart to even mention the number!!!! She just let people guessing including you Perez!!!! Even when her husband and her talking about it, they didn't mention the number. Trust me Perez, by dishing Bethenny's "Skinny Margarita", you help her selling that product. By now people will buy and try the product. Ha,ha,ha. Perez, if you hate Bethenny stop talking/ writing about her, because right now you are helping her promoting "Skinny Margarita" LOL. She will be laughing all the way to the bank!!!!!!
