Bethenny Frankel surprised her husband Jason Hoppy with a brand new Mac laptop on Monday's episode of Bethenny Ever After as his new working computer, should he decide to join her in her business, SkinnyGirl. During the conversation, Bethenny's tone came across as 'if you want to work for me, here is a computer. If not, it is going to a new employee.' In other words, the computer wasn't for Jason personally, but more to the next worker for her business, whether it is Jason or someone new.
One fan wrote to Bethenny about her tone of voice, essentially attacking her for asking for the computer back if Jason rejected her offer. "Did @Bethenny really ask for her mac book BACK from her husband!!? Run Jason Run! This chic is loony!!! #awfulwife," the fan wrote to the business mogul.
But Bethenny Frankel didn't take the message so seriously. She didn't think she was an awful wife to telling Jason that if he wanted to join the business, there would be a computer waiting for him. "Simmer," Bethenny wrote back to the fan. "Of course I gave Jason the MacBook. Use it for work or watch porn on it. It ain't that serious." And it isn't that big of a deal. She is trying to make Jason feel welcome for her business without spoiling him with Apple products. Just because she is rich doesn't mean she has to buy her husband into the company.
Do you think the fan overreacted or do you think Bethenny's tone of voice was rude?
