Bethenney Frankel Releases ‘SkinnyGirl Wine,’ World Gags

Bethenny Frankel once released a drink called SkinnyGirl Margarita. Aside from sounding disgusting, the beverage also had the potential to cause cancer.

But nothing stops Bethenny Frankel from forging ahead in her career, and so now, she’s released another alcoholic drink for aspiring real housewives — SkinnyGirl Wine. According to its website:

I’m not a wine connoisseur, but I do love a refreshing, great tasting glass of wine and that’s what I’ve created.  There is a selection of red, white and rosé varietals, made from California grown grapes, and each serving is only 100 calories—15% lower that most other brands.

You guys, this is really depressing. Drinking wine is supposed to be fun and relaxing, not a time to worry about  15-20 calories. It’s just sort of a miserable reflection of society when absolutely everything we do is based on how we want to look instead of how we want to feel — especially because wine developed with the sole purpose of being lower in calories is very likely completely fucking gross.

You know what I’d drink? Something called HappyGirl Wine, designed to be as delicious as possible (this particular brand name does not exist as far as I know, although most wines are designed to be delicious, not low-calorie). That reflects my preferred way of life. How about you?

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

      I guess “reduced calorie” sounded better than “reduced alcohol”?

      Also, who would buy wine from a label that sells things other than wine?

      There is such a thing as “HappyGirl” wine – the label is Beringer and it’s a California Rosé made from a White Zinfandel blend that has been scientifically engineered to maximize its appeal to the female palate (Seriously! I learned this during wine training.)

      Bartenders call it “Cougar Juice.” Pretty awesome, actually. Very sweet, if you like that.

      I would drink the Skinny Girl White Wine – nice and chilled while sitting by the pool – especially since it’s white wine that packs more calories (as opposed to red wine), but I love red wines too much to drink a “skinny” version…

      I have no interest in skinnygirl anything, I don’t want to look like a scarecrow. Bethenny looks scrawny not sexy.

      Please. Get over yourself. I would totally drink Skinnygirl wine. I can do it without being over skinny, and I can do it without being overchunky. And, most of all, I can do it without being overly full of myself. Yeah, wine can be beautifully complex, and sometimes it’s nice to splurge. But when you’re playing cards with other couples and the kids are crawling around under your feet and you’re wondering how you went through 3 bottles between 2 friends, that small calorie savings adds up.
