Bethenny Frankel Says $150 Eye Cream Is Absurd, Launches Her Own Skincare Line

After making major bank getting calorie counters wasted, former Real Housewives of New York cast-mate Bethenny Frankel is mining thinspiration again via a full skin and body care line. The reality star, who reportedly sold her diet-conscious Skinnygirl Margarita brand for over $100 million, is hoping to cash in with both Skinnygirl Face & Body Solutions and Skinnygirl Mommy, set to land on Walmart's shelves in Novemeber, with 30 offerings that include Shimmer Plumping Lip Gloss, Gradual Tanning Body Shimmer, and shower gels, lotions, and scrubs that promise to smell like the Margaritas that made her rich. “A $150 eye cream is ridiculous and absurd," Bethenny tells WWD , which is probably why nothing in the collection will cost more than $15. “Skin care can be confusing and I want to be straightforward." With the same Bethenny-type chick on the packaging, we're guessing the message is, put this on your face, lose weight. Preferably while drinking a marg and watching Bravo.
