Bethenny Frankel's Skinnygirl Alcohol Sales DOWN!

Filed under: Business BlitzBethenny FrankelTY KUAlcohol

skinnygirl alcohol sales down 2013

In a world that's increasingly worried about its figure, we'd expect Bethenny Frankel's Skinnygirl brand alcohol to continue blowing up!

With fewer calories than the full-powered alternatives, it sounds like a fab deal, right?? Well, according to new research for end-of-the-year trends, the company that owns Skinnygirl said sales were down 29 percent!

Skinnygirl Cocktails now has 20 products including vodka, wines, wines and pre-mixed margaritas. It also has less alcohol than its full-caloried competition!

For instance, Skinnygirl wines are only 10 percent alcohol by volume! The standard is usually 12 to 15 percent standard. Their vodkas are only 30 percent alcohol instead of 40 percent.

Our guess is that it's because the booze is trying to be something that it's not — to become a 'diet' alcohol, SOMETHING has to change! That's unlike another major low-cal brand TY KU, which is an all natural low calorie saki.

What goes into Skinnygirl's recipes is pretty much a mystery, with Skinnygirl brand director Megan Frank giving very few details and just that:

Etsy Will No Longer Sell Products Made From Endangered Animals!

Filed under: Retail TherapyEndangeredFur

etsy will stop allowing sale of animal products

If you're looking to buy a brand new fur coat on Etsy, then you're out of luck!

For a long time, the popular online marketplace has been the perfect place for people to buy and sell homemade goods.

But the website recently announced they would no longer allow the sale of products made from endangered or threatened species of animals!

That means any product containing fur, ivory, teeth, or bones of any animal protected by the US Endangered Species Act is strictly prohibited! The site will also ban the sale of anything made from threatened animals, like gorillas, bears, and jaguars!

We DEFINITELY think this is a good move if it discourages people from hunting endangered species for a profit, but it will be interesting to see how it affects the site overall.

And don't worry, guys. You can still buy all of the Cabbage Patch Kids wigs you want! LOLz!

hostess twinkies walmart snack early debut

Walmart, while not our favorite company on the planet, is planning to go the best kind of rogue this weekend… and start selling Twinkies days before they are supposed to!

Hostess has said it has asked the retailer to wait until Monday, but Walmart just laughed and announced that the cakes were available at about 1,600 stores, and that about 3,000 of its 4,000 U.S. stores should have them by Sunday morning!

Leona Lewis Loves Animals So Much She'd Give Up HER CAREER For Them!

leona lewis animals career give up

Animals have a friend in Leona Lewis… who said she'd give up her ENTIRE career if that meant nobody would be allowed to test on animals ever again!

Part of us would be pumped if nobody did frivolous animal testing ever again, but part of us would be bummed not to have Leona Lewis's music! Such a catch 22!

Here's what she said about it all:
