Bethenny Frankel Promotes Skinny Cocktails Book with REALLY Skinny Photo

Bethenny Frankel may be taking this whole Skinnygirl thing a bit too seriously.

The reality star, who is headed back to The Real Housewives of New York City, made headlines this week when she posed for a Twitter photo in promotion of her new Skinnygirl Cocktails book.

“Today my newest book #SkinnygirlCocktails is available wherever books are sold!! Go pick up yours today,” she wrote as a caption to the following photo.

But followers weren’t focused on the book in Bethenny’s hands.

Rather, they couldn’t stop staring at the lack of bulk around her wait.

One follower told Frankel to “eat something” and questioned if she was “having a nervous breakdown.”

This prompted the 43-year-old to respond to the criticism of the image on the Elvis Duran and the Z100 Morning Show earlier today.

“The way that my body was, it made me look like I was a skeleton and it became this whole Internet thing yesterday, that I’m anorexic and all this crazy stuff,” Bethenny said.

Will she be more careful in the future regarding what kind of photos she publishes online? Maybe, but…

“If I start filtering myself and being so careful walking on eggshells with everything I say or post, I won’t even be me or be on this radio show or on that television show, or as successful as I am,” she said. “So this is who I am, and sometimes you make mistakes!”

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan looks healthier these days than she used to at the height of her … whatever that phase was.

Frankel made similar waves in July when she ran a picture on Instagram of herself in her four-year old daughter’s pajamas.

For understandable reasons, many were concerned how an adult could actually pull off such a feat.

“I didn’t think people were going to start being anorexic because I put my daughter’s clothes on,” she said at the time. “I just thought it was a ridiculous joke. I peed in a champagne bucket at my own wedding. The bar is very low, so why is that such a big deal?”

Shailene Woodley ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ Actress Is All Smiles In NYC

Shailene Woodley Steps Out In NYCNow here is one A-lister who manages to keep a pretty low profile! After starring in ‘Divergent’ and ‘The Fault in Our Stars,’ Shailene Woodley became one of Hollywood’s biggest actresses, but we don’t see much of her if she isn’t promoting a project. Paparazzi caught up with her as she was leaving her hotel in NYC yesterday. She’s a brunette again! RELATED: Shailene Woodley goes blonde: love it or hate it?

It was recently announced that ‘Insurgent,’ the sequel to ‘Divergent,’ will be in 3D. I’m still surprised ‘Divergent’ itself wasn’t in 3D! Despite that, the movie still grossed nearly $300 million worldwide. Imagine how much ‘Insurgent’ will make with the higher 3D ticket prices.

I’m curious to see how ‘Allegiant’ will do. Many people I know absolutely HATED the ending. I think the people who disliked it were the romance fans. They want their happily ever after, and when they don’t get it, they’re seriously ticked. The teens I know who are fans of the books cried at the ending but didn’t hate it like the adults I know who read it :).

I’ve got the trilogy in my TBR pile. Can’t wait to get a quiet weekend to curl up with some books…

Jennifer Lawrence New Trailer For ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1′

hunger games mockingjay part 1 trailerHere’s a NEW trailer for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1‘! We see all three of the stars: Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and even Josh Hutchinson. In this trailer, Katniss learns Peeta is alive even as she takes up arms with the rebels. RELATED: Watch Katniss return to District 12.

Something tells me the ‘Mockingjay’ movies are going to deviate the most from the book compared to ‘The Hunger Games’ and ‘Catching Fire.’ It makes sense. The books are all told from Katniss’s perspective. The movies have allowed us to see more than just what Katniss sees for both of the earlier adaptations, and it looks like this will continue to be the case for ‘Mockingjay.’ So much happens in ‘Mockingjay’ that I suspect it necessitated considerable deviation. I bet we’re going to see Peeta in captivity in the Capitol, for example. Can Not WAIT. Check it out!

Chicago Fire Season 3 Episode 5 Recap: What the Truck?

Dawson received a promotion on Chicago Fire Season 3 Episode 5.

But you know what they say about getting what you wish for, right? There are consequences into diving so quickly into something.

It took Herrmann until the conclusion of the hour to allow Dawson to see some of her mistakes, while also realizing the tough position that she has placed herself in due to selecting a rather unorthodox way to get a new position in the Firehouse.

For the most part, the episode felt like a number of non-connected storylines, though one of the most extreme shockers took place when Casey made a bold move to protect his sister from someone he viewed as a destructive husband.

He threatened him about his finances, taking a stand in honor of his sibling.

This arc left viewers hanging a bit, as we’d have to imagine a major showdown is on tap for next Wednesday night.

Then there was the big mess at Molly’s.

Might some be turned off by this whole food truck business, which involved Boden telling the Molly’s gang this week to clear out from the premises? Perhaps.

But we see nothing wrong with adding some humor to a series that often centers on life and death situations. This is a welcome reprieve.

What did everyone else think of the episode? What does the future hold for Dawson? Did Casey make the right call as far as his sister is concerned?

Visit TV Fanatic to watch Chicago Fire online and sound off now!

Brad Pitt Being Named A Dame Didn’t Help Angelina Jolie’s Status At Home

"Fury" - Closing Night Gala: 58th BFI London Film FestivalHere’s Brad Pitt at the closing night gala screening of ‘Fury’ for the 58th BFI London Film Festival. Isn’t he looking good in his suit? He had a great weekend: ‘Fury’ was #1 at the box office in the United States this past weekend! RELATED: Brad Pitt and Jimmy Fallon breakdance on ‘The Tonight Show.’

At the festival Brad chatted with reporters about meeting Queen Elizabeth when she named Angelina Jolie an Honorary Dame of the British Empire.

It was just a pleasure and certainly one for the books. [It was] a wonderful afternoon for our family, a great honor for Angie and something we won’t forget.”

So has Dame Angelina become The Boss at home?

Aaah, no,” Pitt told Us, laughing. “We have our own pecking order at home!”

Geez: what does somebody have to do to get some respect? LOL I’m just kidding: I’m sure Angelina’s happy with the status quo with the family.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 11 Episode 3 Recap: Fight Night

What was in the water at Grey-Sloan Memorial this week?!?

It’s seemed as if no one was in a good mood on Grey’s Anatomy Season 11 Episode 3, with fights breaking out left, right and in the middle. To wit…

Owen guilt-tripped Callie into enlisting Veterans Rehab Hospital patients as subjects in her robotic limb study. Seemed like a nice, generous idea, right?

Yes… until Owen promised results when he shouldn’t have so and ordered Callie to “fix” a wounded warrior whose severely amputated leg made him ineligible for the procedure.

Fortunately, Jackson came up with a solution that permitted Callie to come through for the soldier after all.

There was a major back-and-forth between Callie and Owen in the hallway, but the former eventually forgave Callie the latter when he confessed that he was scared… without something good happening, he feared he might once more become as dark as he was before he met Cristina.

Told “we are not peers” by the stern Dr. Herman, Arizona was falling very far behind in her fellowship. She then got excited at what she mistakenly believed to be Callie’s suggestion that they wait to have kids, which led to a blowout between the couple.

“Say it,” Callie shouted. “You don’t want a baby.”

Meredith interrupted Alex in the shower (giving props to his “spectaculr junk”) and recruited her new Person to help her investigate Maggie.

Meanwhile, Maggie – unaware that Richard is her dad – continued to confide in him. Following his quick removal of a tree branch from an impaled patient, he seemed ready to blurt out the truth.

Later on, Alex pulled a Willow Rosenberg that revealed to Meredith the truth: she and Maggie are, for certain, sisters. Mer brought this fact to Richard, who said he’s only known for a week, though he wishes he had known for the last 30 years.

Richard also revealed this to Maggie, who called him a “coward” in response.

April was caught in the middle of a sibling rivalry, with Derek now staying in Seattle and therefore acting as “king of the hospital” in Amelia’s eyes.

The female Sheperd said she had no plans to give up her turf any time soon, while the male version said Meredith backed him into a corner when it came to the D.C. job by refusing to move with him. He then went off on his wife about how he never would have stuck around if he knew she would just be getting drunk with Alex all the time.

Finally, the board voted to take Miranda instead of Alex.

This hour was not lacking for tension, was it? Go watch Grey’s Anatomy online to relive all the fights and get your first look here at Grey’s Anatomy Season 11 Episode 4:

Dennis Rader, BTK Serial Killer, Writing Book to "Pay My Debt" to Victims’ Families

Dennis Rader, a serial killer responsible for 10 grisly murders over three decades, is putting together a book about his crimes … to pay his debt to the families.

The Wichita, Kansas, product says he’s cooperating with an author to recount his story in an effort to make things right. Or at least come as close as he can.

Dennis Rader Mug Shot

Rader, nicknamed BTK (“bind, torture, kill”) recently sent a four-page, handwritten letter to the Wichita Eagle, “From the Desk of Dennis L. Rader.”

“I can never replace their love ones, my deeds too ‘dark’ to understand; the book or movies etc. is the only way to help them,” the 69-year-old writes.

Rader, who’s currently serving 10 life sentences, is working with Katherine Ramsland, a professor of forensic psychology at DeSales University in Pennsylvania.

She insists it won’t sensationalize Rader’s horrific crimes but is “a serious effort that will have some benefit for people who study this kind of crime.”

Ramsland was picked, in fact, by a group of Rader’s victims’ families, who won his media rights in 2005 in a bid to prevent him from profiting from his crimes.

O.J. Simpson, famously, attempted to do just that and lost a judgment that ultimately granted Ronald Goldman’s family the rights to his book If I Did It.

“Their position is that they want [the book] to be done and over with, so they can put the matter behind them,” the group’s attorney, James Thompson, says.

O.J. Simpson

O.J. Simpson was arrested for the murder of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman, leading to the trial of the century in 1994-95.

Rader says the book will offer insight into the workings of serial killers’ brains.

“People like me need to be understood, so the criminal professional field can better understand the criminal mind. That would be my way of helping debt to society.”

Rader’s daughter Kerri made headlines last week for criticizing Stephen King, whose latest movie, The Good Marriage, is loosely based on the BTK case.

It’s King, not Rader, who is “exploiting my father’s 10 victims and their families,” she said of the work, in which a wife has no idea her husband is a serial killer.

Rader, who claims to be a fan of King’s books, insists his wife and family had no idea about his secret life as a murderer until the day he was exposed.

Criminal Minds Season 10 Episode 2 Recap: What a Nightmare

Viewers were introduced to Kate Callahan on Criminal Minds Season 10 Episode 1, a premiere that spent a lot of time on the addition of Jennifer Love Hewitt to the show’s cast.

But Criminal Minds Season 10 Episode 2 honed in on a veteran member of the BAU squad, Garcia was clearly having a tough time dealing with the fact that she shot Greg Bailer… even though he was trying to kill her and Spencer in the hospital and all.

She’s been having recurring nightmares about the incident.

In order to move on, Garcia wanted to actually visit the man and clear her conscious, though Morgan tells her to write him a letter instead.

She responds that she’s tried writing him in prison, but it hasn’t helped. She needs the in-person sit-down. Morgan doesn’t approve in any way, however, saying Bailer is a killer and doesn’t deserve any of her energy.

But, come on. Did you really think this would stop Garcia?

She ends up taking some personal time to try to wrap head around what happened, causing concern for Reid. He asks Morgan about it and he responds by telling him about the guilt Garcia is dealing with over the shooting.

He then gets personal himself and admits that he felt the same way after his first shooting. Until he realized that the victim was not a good person.

Garcia, of course, does end up seeing Greg, who is on death row and who has 10 hours to live. None of his friends or family members have shown up and he doesn’t want to be alone for the lethal injection. Would Garcia attend the event?

She agrees and Greg’s final words are “thank you,” giving Garcia the closure she needs and bringing to an end one seriously emotional episode.

Give Criminal Minds props for going above the norms of a procedural here. We rarely see the after-effects of a shooting play out in such a manner and it helped this episode stand out from most of the dramatic fare on CBS. Well done.

You can watch Criminal Minds online via TV Fanatic if you need to catch up on anything you may have missed.

Person of Interest Season 4 Episode 3 Recap: Fun with Fusco!

Things lightened up a bit on Person of Interest Season 4 Episode 3.

No, this series won’t ever be mistaken for The Big Bang Theory, but “Wingman” gave us a look at Reese figuring out how to work the police system… Fusco out on the dating scene… and The Machine learing how to give Finch a lot of money and guns while not sounding Samaritan’s alarms.

This wasn’t an hour grounded in heavy mythology. Instead, it featured various members of the team actually getting some fun stuff to do.

There was Finch having to pretend that he was a legendary, tough-as-nails mercenary, actually uttering the awesome line:” I only have two modes: calm and furious.”

There was Reese being forced to use his Machine-inspired detective skills instead of simply shooting criminals in the kneecap in the middle of a crowd.

And there was Fusco going toe-to-toe with a “social liaison” attempting to give him an image makeover. Read that sentence again and try not to laugh.

In the end, Reese’s captain (portrayed by Monique Gabriela Curnen) was satisfied about the closed case. Finch was content that The Machine provided for him while also sweeping up the criminals in the wake of his mission. And Fusco was happy because… he went on a date!

On top of all these developments, we witnessed Root back in action as well, although only for a short, kneecapping moment.

It’s also worth noting Captain Moreno’s quote about believing all the mobsters with shot legs could have been Reese’s handiwork. Overall, this was a strong hour in which nearly everything and everyone converged on the police precinct following one wild and crazy day.

Was it a different Person of Interest tone than usual? Yes. But change isn’t always a bad thing, is it?

If you missed Season 4 Episode 3, head over to TV Fanatic now and watch Person of Interest online.
