Early life

Frankel is the only child of Robert J. Frankel, a horse trainer, and Bernadette Birk, an interior designer.[3][4] Her father was Jewish and her mother was a Roman Catholic of Welsh descent, who converted to Judaism when the couple married.[5][6][7] Her father left her mother when Frankel was four years old. When she was five, her mother married another horse trainer, John Parisella.[3] Frankel describes her childhood as difficult.[3] Her biological father stopped supporting the family and her mother, Frankel says, "was always drinking" and often argued violently with her stepfather.[3]

Frankel said she moved many times and attended multiple schools before going to boarding school. Frankel graduated in 1988 from the Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida[8] where she lived on campus. She attended the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City,[1] and New York University.[3]


Bethenny worked as a production assistant on the set of Saved by the Bell.[9]

In 2005, Frankel was a contestant on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart, a reality competition series, and was one of two finalists.[10][11] In 2008, Frankel was selected for the reality TV series The Real Housewives of New York City.[12] In June 2010, Frankel starred in the Bravo reality TV show Bethenny Getting Married?, which documented her engagement and marriage to Jason Hoppy, and the birth of their daughter. At the time of its premiere, the series was the highest rated of any series in Bravo's history.[13][14] In September 2010, Frankel announced that for personal reasons she would not be returning to The Real Housewives of New York City for its fourth season.[15] However, following months of speculation, it was confirmed on October 20, 2014 that Bethenny would return to the cast for the seventh season of the show as a main housewife after three seasons absent.[16][17]


In March 2009, Frankel's book, Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting, was published and The SkinnyGirl Dish: Easy Recipes for Your Naturally Thin Life, was published in December. She created an exercise DVD, Body by Bethenny, in spring 2010 and an audio book, The Skinnygirl Rules, which summarized her two prior books.[18] In 2011, Frankel published, A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out of Life and in December 2012, published the novel Skinnydipping.[19][20]

Frankel created the Skinnygirl cocktail[21] company in April 2011 and later sold the company to Fortune Brands' Beam Global (now a part of Suntory) for an estimated $100 million.[22][23]

In May 2017, Bethenny celebrated the Midwest launch of Skinnygirl Market Fresh Deli. It is a line of pre-packaged lunch meat that is free from preservatives and certified[24] by the American Heart Association for containing lower levels of sodium and fat.[25] Skinnygirl Market Fresh Deli is also a supporter of Bethenny's program, B-Strong: Find Your Yes, which is a division of Dress for Success. The program provides a "multi-layered support system, resources and financial assistance for women coping with crisis situations."[25]

Discussion of Frankel as a host for a talk show were initiated in 2011[26] and revived in 2012.[27][28] The Bethenny show premiered on September 9, 2013[29] and was canceled on February 14, 2014, airing repeats until the end of the television season.[30]


Her B Strong program for women and their families in crisis works with the national disaster relief charity Delivering Good to provide people affected by the hurricanes of 2017 with gift cards, bank cards and critical supplies. Bethenny and her team helped people who survived natural disasters in Puerto Rico, Houston, Mexico City.[citation needed]

Frankel posed nude for a PETA billboard in September 2009.[31]

Personal life

Frankel married entertainment industry executive Peter Sussman in 1996 and divorced him in 1997.[1][32] She married pharmaceutical sales executive Jason Hoppy in March 2010, and gave birth to a daughter, Bryn, in May of the same year.[33][34] Frankel separated from Hoppy in December 2012[35] and filed for divorce in January 2013.[36] A custody agreement was finalized in June 2014, but property division negotiations were still ongoing.[37] The divorce was finalized in July 2016, nearly four years after the couple separated.[38] In December 2017, she sued for full custody of their seven year-old daughter.[39]

Frankel's boyfriend Dennis Shields was found dead at Trump Tower on August 10, 2018.[40]

Federal Crop Insurance: Background and Issues
Federal Crop Insurance: Background and Issues
In preparation for the next farm bill, the 112th Congress will likely continue reviewing the effectiveness and operations of the federal crop insurance program as part of the farm safety net. In 2010, the House Committee on Agriculture sought input from farmers and others on the program, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) revised its agreement with the crop insurance industry to deliver crop insurance to farmers following a rapid rise in government costs of the program. This report provides a primer on the federal crop insurance program.The federal crop insurance program began in 1938 when Congress authorized the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation. The current program, which is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Risk Management Agency (RMA), provides producers with risk management tools to address crop yield and/or revenue losses on their farms. In purchasing a policy, a producer growing an insurable crop selects a level of coverage and pays a portion of the premium—or none of it in the case of catastrophic coverage—which increases as the level of coverage rises. The federal government pays the rest of the premium (averaging about 60% of the total). Insurance policies are sold and completely serviced through 16 approved private insurance companies. The insurance companies’ losses are reinsured by USDA, and their administrative and operating costs are reimbursed by the federal government.In 2010, federal crop insurance policies covered 255 million acres. Major crops are covered in most counties where they are grown. Four crops—corn, cotton, soybeans, and wheat—accounted for three-quarters of total acres enrolled in crop insurance. Most crop insurance policies are either yield-based or revenue-based. For yield-based policies, a producer can receive an indemnity if there is a yield loss relative to the farmer’s “normal” (historical) yield. Revenue-based policies protect against crop revenue loss resulting from declines in yield, price, or both. Other insurance products protect against losses in whole farm revenue (rather than just for an individual crop) or gross margins for livestock enterprises.Government costs for crop insurance have increased substantially in recent years. After ranging between $2.1 and $3.6 billion during FY2000-FY2006, costs rose to $7.3 billion in FY2009 as higher policy premiums from rising crop prices drove up premium subsidies to farmers and expense reimbursements (which are based on total premiums) to private insurance companies. In FY2010, total costs declined to $3.7 billion following a decline in crop prices. Reimbursements and risk-sharing between USDA and private insurance companies are spelled out in a Standard Reinsurance Agreement (SRA), which plays a large role in determining program costs. In 2010, USDA renegotiated the SRA for the 2011 reinsurance year (which began July 1, 2010) to save money and make adjustments to improve program delivery.Over the next 10 years, federal spending on crop insurance is projected to outpace spending on traditional commodity programs by about one-third, which might capture the attention of budget cutters looking for potential sources of savings. Insurance companies, farm groups, and some members of Congress are concerned that additional reductions in federal support will negatively impact the financial health of the crop insurance industry and possibly jeopardize the delivery of crop insurance. A main concern for most is saving federal dollars without adversely affecting farmer participation, policy coverage, or industry interest in selling and servicing crop insurance products to farmers. From a farm policy standpoint, policymakers and observers alike remain concerned about how the crop insurance program interacts with farm commodity programs and whether together they provide a cost-effective means for helping farmers deal with business risk.

God Went Fishing
God Went Fishing
God Went Fishing tells the remarkable story of Sigmund, a handsome and kind young man who led an idyllic life until learning the woman he thought to be his mother had stolen him from the hospital where she’d just given birth, leaving her real child behind. This satirical novel follows Sigmund’s adventures and catastrophes as he searches for his true identity. While enjoying this cross between Candide and “Family Guy,” readers see that a life filled with death, despair, and deceit can be fun. Perhaps the real reason Adam and Eve left the Garden of Eden was because it was boring. God Went Fishing is often offensive, sometimes poignant, occasionally edifying—and always funny. Readers will long remember the characters Sigmund encounters during his quest. What more can one ask from any work of fiction than to make you think and make you laugh? God Went Fishing accomplishes both.
