Pregnant Bethenny Frankel: Taping ‘Housewives’ Without Booze ‘Like Being In The Desert Without Water

The biggest challenge of Bethenny Frankel’s pregnancy? Gaining weight? Nope, she has it covered with a new diet book she’s writing about healthy pregnancy (damn those skinny pregnant girls who look like they stuffed a basketball into their skinny jeans). No, the Real Housewives of New York star found staying sober to be the toughest part. And why are we surprised.

Shooting this season without alcohol was a real achievement. It was
like being in the desert without water,” Frankel, 39, quipped to

The expecting reality TV star misses her “Skinny Girl” martinis the most she said.

“But now I have all these delusions that I will continue my sobriety forever.” Delusions. Yes…

Frankel, pictured in NYC showing off her baby bump on Feb. 19, also said she’s quickly planning her shotgun marriage to businessman Jason Hoppy which she said will take place very soon.

It’ll be “not huge crazy, but not teeny tiny,” Frankel. “It’ll fit my personality to a tee.” Which means there will be lots and lots of booze!
