Bethenny Frankel of Bravo TV's "The Real Housewives of New York City" beat me to the Midway SuperTarget in St. Paul this afternoon. I even arrived 15 minutes early, but she was already in the check-out line buying Hanes boy shorts, makeup wipes and a SoBe drink. And, she made a pit-stop before our shopping date at Wal-Mart. (I'd tell you what she had to say about it, but that could jeapordize any future licensing agreements.) You can read all about our shopping escapades in the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Sunday, June 28, but I won't make "Housewives" fans wait for this dish: The much hyped Season 2 scene in which Kelly Bensimon told Bethenny "I'm up here and you're down here" was not at all staged, Bethenny insists. But even at the time it was happening, the ever-enterprising Bethenny said she knew it was like "manna from heaven." Indeed, "I'm Down Here" is the working title of Bethenny's third book. As for the next "Housewives" season, which begins filming in July, Bethenny isn't worried about coming up with good material. "I have a boyfriend," she said. "That's enough." She did pause twice to gush over baby clothes…
Bethenny left a little something behind at the Midway Target: she signed every copy of her book, "Naturally Thin."

How fun! Thanks for the dish. And how great that Bethenny left the Twin Cities having met one of our best assets, Ali Kaplan!
