bethenny: calling all my girls

Wednesday, September 4, 2013

Guys, I get pitched by PR professionals to write about this or that here on the plum on a regular basis. Many stories don't fit with my blog, some definitely do, but never, NEVER, have I received an email pitch that upon opening it caused me to:

1. Gasp.
2. Scream "OMG" so loudly that my colleagues in the surrounding offices had to make sure I was okay.
3. Jump out of my chair.

Getting invited to attend the Calling All My Girls Tour stop in Cleveland with the one and only Bethenny Frankel did all of the above.

Bethenny's new TV show, bethenny, premiers Monday, September 9! To help spread the word, she went on a cross-country tour, hosted meet and greets with her fans and generally just continued to be awesome by throwing a swanky party. 

Here in Cleveland, bethenny will air weekdays at 3pm on NBC affiliate WKYC, check out when it's on in your area here. As fan of Bethenny's from the very begining you can best believe I'm setting my DVR for the 9/9 premiere.

The #callingallmygirls party, hosted at MOCA Cleveland, was spectacular. The event planners and producers threw a seamlessly fun and entertaining shindig that this PR gal appreciated - everything was on point. 

My hot date for the evening, and Bethenny's #1 fan, Steph rockin' the blogger badge + Me enjoying the Skinnygirl Moscato + Allison and I + our buddy Tommy Riles working the audience

Bethenny! Social media! Photos!

Oh ya know, just hanging out with Bethenny Frankel... and yes, she is as tiny and beautiful in person as you'd expect.

By the end of the party my face hurt from smiling due to the copious amounts of fun that was had and when I was handed a sweet bethenny Swag bag on my way out my smile got even bigger.

All of this bethenny Swag could be yours!

The fine folks at Bethenny TV hooked me up with not one, but two fabulous gift bags - one for me, one for you!

  1. I admire that she is such an awesome business woman! Building an empire one step at a time.

  2. Following BOTH accounts already!

  3. Tweeted! @LH2007 Gimmie all the @Bethenny Swag in prep for @bethennytv's Sept. 9 premiere, @clevelandsaplum! #callingallmygirls

  4. I like Bethenny for her openness & honesty. She doesn't hide anything & isn't afraid to let people know that she is a human who makes mistakes.

  5. I would definitely ask her about how she started her business! I'll be honest, I didn't know much about Bethenny until I heard all about her coming to CLE & she sounds like a truly inspiring lady!

  6. I admire Bethenny for having the balls to break through the glass ceiling!

  7. I'm so super jealous you got to go to this!! I heart bethanny! I already follow bethanny on fb, but if I had one question to ask her I'd ask I'd ask her how she keeps it all together! She found love so late in life and that was inspiring, and I'm super sad that it's coming apart, but she still seems to be able to keep it moving!

  8. I'm seriously obsessed with my Bethenny shirt, it's so damn comfortable.

  9. I admire Bethenny's tell-it-like-it-is attitude!

  10. Thursday tweet!

    PS There is no @BethennyTV anymore :-(
