Bethenny Frankel has come to Bravo‘s rescue the same way Lacey Schwimmer came to Chaz Bono’s rescue yesterday. Bethenny said, “It’s preposterous to blame a TV show for someone’s suicide. When the show started filming, I’d heard he wasn’t so kind to his wife. But I know nothing about them. People sign very lengthy documents and they know what they’re getting into. Life is stressful. It’s unfair to blame a TV show for something personal, I believe that. I really do. If I go through something horrendous, there’s no discussion that Bravo had anything to do with that.”
Bethenny is absolutely right and just confirmed what a million people have been saying, but she just legitimized it being a Bravolebrity. I think it’s ridiculous that Russell’s family is blaming the TV show…I’m sure it was an added stress, but to blame The Housewives is just plain dumb.
