Despite the show's knack for causing drama between the women, Alex McCord and Bethenny were pretty much friendly to each other on the show — and we're glad to see that's continuing outside of it as well.
Alex wishes her the best in everything, not commenting much further on the Whole Foods scandal going on.
Simon Van Kempen did have something to say though, but it also seems to give Bethenny the benefit of the doubt:
"For me, there's truth in advertising. If you're upfront about it, there wouldn't be scandal. I don't think she was hiding anything at all, [but] once she sold it off, she lost a little control."
It's nice of him to think it's not her doing, and we don't think it is either, BUT we don't think they changed the formula at all and she had a hand in the marketing regardless of selling it off (and by that we mean creating a brand that's based on it's own "healthiness," which is why she was able to sell it off at all), so as devil's advocate here… it's very possible she was a little in the know before this went down — but just probably couldn't do anything about it because she didn't have the control anymore!
She wasn't the one trying to sell it to Whole Foods, ya know?
At the very end though, this doesn't mean that the hooch isn't delicious OR healthier than other drinks! A lot of things aren't sold in Whole Foods, but if you advertise healthiness, it shouldn't be too hard to land a spot.
