Ba-ba-ba bling! Diamonds are indeed a girl's best friend if you're Bethenny Frankel — expensive diamonds, too!
The "Real Housewives of New York" star took to Instagram on June 2 to show off a few new purchases.
"How'd we do?," she captioned a snap of her hands while showing off a several Cartier rings and bracelets that she purchased during a spending spree. The cost of her splurge: $38,000.
On one hand, the former Skinnygirl owner sports two of Cartier's famous Love rings in platinum and yellow gold, which reportedly retail for $3,650 and $1,650, respectively. She then gave those rings some company, purchasing two additional diamond bands. One, a platinum ring, is said to be priced at $4,500, and the other, a yellow gold band, costs $3,750.
On her other hand, she has a similarly expensive ring that tops out at $5,550. She also includes a diamond ring worth about $6,000 and a third ring featuring a platinum diamond band.
Then, of course, came her ritzy wrists, as she shows off two bracelets on her left hand, one of which is believed to ring in at $8,550.
With apologies to Robin Leach, this is the lifestyles of the rich and famous. And Bethenny can certainly afford it. In 2010, she sold her Skinnygirl cocktail brand to Fortune Brands' Beam Global for an estimated $100 million.
The reality star found herself on the defense recently, but it had nothing to do with her spending, but more her mouth.
In April, Bethenny was speaking at an event in New York and reportedly made offensive comments about women in business.
Tech entrepreneur Mary Pryor, who attended the event, took to Twitter and The Huffington Post to express her disappointment over Bethenny's alleged comments.
"I was one of the women who tried to stand up to reality TV star and Skinny Girl Vodka founder, Bethenny Frankel ... And was silenced," Mary wrote.
"I was stunned when Frankel implied that women should have sex with men in exchange for capital," Mary continued. "I was offended when she expressed some kind of kinship with black women because she's 'loud.' And I was taken aback when she advised those of us in the room to get business advice to hire a white man as the face of our companies."
Bethenny denied any of this took place and insists she was misinterpreted.
Bethenny said on Twitter, "The only problem is thag (sic) none of this happened. Never let the truth get in the way of trying to get attention."
She added, "Funny how in a room of hundreds of people & phones no one has me saying it. Don't speak unless ur educated on the topic."
