Bethenny Frankel launched her Skinnygirl Jeans line at Macy’s Herald Square, her first public appearance since the sudden death of boyfriend Dennis Shields in August.
She opened up to “Extra’s” AJ Calloway about the loss. “It’s definitely been a different kind of summer. I am thinking about Dennis today. He would have been so happy about this launch. He was the most excited when I was working and successful.”
She continued, “He was a cheerleader, so he would have been counting the numbers and looking on the website and asking how many pairs of jeans and jean jackets we sold… he is definitely with me here tonight.”
Frankel’s line is already a success. “I’m excited. This really is kind of iconic, Macy’s Herald Square – I’ve arrived... I never wanted to be a sellout, but I guess today we are selling out.” She explained, “They are jeans for everybody, all ages shapes sizes, races.”
