Before she was one of the Real Housewives of New York City, Bethenny Frankel was just another aspiring actress trying to make a name for herself in a wildly competitive industry.
In a sense, we guess she was successful, as Frankel is a household name and a one-woman industry these days.
Unfortunately, one of the decisions she made early on in her climb to the top has come back to haunt her in an embarrassing way.
It seems that way back in 1994, Frankel starred in a low-budget film called Hollywood Hills, 90028.
Yes, as it’s title indicated the flick was a shameless attempt to cash in on the popularity of 90210.
Needless to say, few were fooled into taking the bait.
So why are we talking about this forgotten cinematic gem 22 years after it was foisted upon an apathetic public?
Well, the film happens to feature a Bethenny sex scene that just today found it’s way onto the Interwebs.
Based on the one and only review on the movie’s IMDB page, softcore porn is not Bethenny’s strong suit:
“The sex scene on the water bed [made] me sea sick just watching it, I thought the guy [starring opposite her] was going to either puke or at least suffocate!” writes the displeased critic (who might be the only person who ever watched the film in its entirety).
Frankel’s ex-husband, Jason Hoppy, spoke to Page Six about his initial reaction to the scene.
“I didn’t know anything about this until after we were married,” Hoppy said.
“Saw it and turned 10 shades of Skinnygirl red.”
The past few weeks have seen one PR nightmare after another for the Housewife-turned-booze-tycoon.
First, there were reports of Frankel feuding with Andy Cohen, who just happens to hold the fate of her career in his hands.
Shortly thereafter, Frankel was fired from Sirius XM, where she’d previously hosted a radio show, after reports that she threw a drunken tantrum at a corporate event reached her bosses.
One year after the release of 90028, Frankel starred in Wish Me Luck, a film that’s apparently about “a genie sent to junior college to turn a nerd into a man.”
So yeah, we think it’s safe to say there’s at least one more Bethenny sex scene out there somewhere.
