Jill Zarin A source claims the first Hermes Birkin bag the former Real Housewife of New York carried around on the reality show was actually a knock off purchased off of eBay.
However, now that she's raking in the dough, Bethenny's loosened the purse strings and buys only the highest quality fakes from a bag lady who personally comes to her home.
By highest quality we're talking about $750-$1500 per bag.
This makes absolutely zero sense.
