Bloggers beware! Bethenny isn’t putting up with any nonsense — she’s ready to defend herself against harmful accusations.

On the April 2 episode of Bethenny Ever After, Bethenny Frankel has to deal with the aftermath of her Forbes magazine cover story when bloggers report that she lied about how much money she made from the sale of her Skinnygirl line of alcoholic beverages in her featured article. Bethenny decides to take the high rode and ignore the haters, but she knows that she has to stand up for herself and for the integrity of her brand.

In the end, Bethenny tries to set the record straight with Matt Lauer by explaining her side of the story and encourages her fans not to believe everything they read.  “I’m not typically a ‘no comment’ type of girl,” Bethenny tells Jason. Good for her for standing up for what she knows is right! Forbes then defended their article and the bloggers that were attacking Bethenny backed off.

Then it’s time for Bethenny to appear on Ellen DeGeneres‘s talk show (something she has done in the past) and she admits that Ellen is a huge role model that she looks up to more than any other television personalities. Ellen messes with Bethenny a bit backstage, telling her that she should speak properly to Bryn or else she is simply just teaching her “baby talk.” Bethenny takes the friendly jokes in stride, calling Ellen a “ball buster.”

Together they end the episode by clearing up a few more rumors that are out in the media. It must be so stressful for Bethenny to constantly have to clear her name!
