Bethenny Frankel is open and outspoken, but you’ve probably never seen her like this! Earlier today Bethenny sat down with iVillage Chief Correspondent Kelly Wallace and talked about her push-up incident and why she’s happy she took her husband’s advice.
Regarding her wardrobe malfunction on Anderson Cooper:
“I just had no idea that doing a push-up would turn into such a YouTube and web phenomenon, I mean this is crazy, I am so happy that I had underwear that were nice because I have had these sort of nude colored, they call it commando panties that are just kind of, just boring, they are not that interesting. And my husband hates them and he was like you need to get interesting, sexy panties, so last week I bought colorful panties. And I happened to by the grace of God be wearing the same colored panties as my shoes. I mean the odds of that are the odds of my dress flying over my head doing push-ups actually.”
What did her husband have to say?
“He said can you imagine those other, the nude colored panties being on TV… The problem is that this is such a misrepresentation of me because it makes me look like someone who matches my panties to my shoes. “
“I love that I am being made to be this fancy, you know fashionista when it comes to the undergarments and I’m not but I’ll take it… “
“I don’t know. I just think it’s funny. It’s ridiculous. It’s just something that would only happen to me. That’s the one thing that everyone who knows me says.”
How did it happen in the first place?
“He was talking about things that I’ve been known to do and I have been known to do a push-up in a tight cocktail dress at a party. And when he said, do you want to, do you want to go, instead of like just kneeling down and doing it which seemed awkward, I kind of went from up to down, there was like a momentum there and it flew… So instead, I was like boom… And I was like, ‘Oh yeah.”
At least she has a nice butt:
“I appreciate it but anybody would be a little taken aback. I mean, wear nice panties. I always will. I did today… (About her previous panties?) Well they were nice, they weren’t bad, they just weren’t interesting and now I’m wearing colorful cute panties.”
