Us Weekly is reporting that Bethenny Frankel auditioned for a Michael Bay movie. A source told Us, “Bethenny secretly read for a role in Miami, Florida, and she did a good job. Although she has no formal training, she has obviously gained a lot of experience working with cameras and she was totally comfortable with what she had to read. He didn’t know who she was but wanted her to read. When she went in, the casting directors were freaking out because it ended up being Bethenny Frankel. The casting guy realized it when Bethenny came to the office. They sent her an email after and said how great she was, she doesn’t know when she’ll find out if she gets the part, but the audition was fabulous.”
Ha! I love that Michael Bay didn’t know who she was. Has he been living under a rock? I know that not everyone watches Bravo, but how did he even agree to the audition if he didn’t know who she was?
I love the shift–in every reality star’s career there is a point where they think they can act. I’m surprised it took Bethenny this long to try to go there. I’m just waiting for someone to write the film, “When Reality Stars Try To Act.”
I’ll say this…At least she’s not trying to go into politics…if she were, she’d propose therapy once a day, and we’d all be required to brand ourselves by law.
