Bethenny Getting Married? A Playlist Inspired by Bethenny Frankel
It’s time to don your most sexy party dress and invite that hot guy from the office because Bethenny is getting married! Ah, you gotta love a Manhattan wedding! But before we send our favourite TV BFF down the aisle, let’s toast the bride, and yummy mummy. To celebrate the start of her exciting new series AND life as a wife, and mother, here’s a playlist inspired by the woman of the hour, Bethenny Frankel!
Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) – Beyoncé
During the Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny’s relationship with Jason had more ups and downs than a fairground rollercoaster. Seriously, how patient and understanding could a girl be? Beyonce’s anthem to frustrated single gals everywhere takes that exasperation and turns it into something a little more flirty and danceable.
Best lyric: If you liked it you should have put a ring on it.
Marry You – Bruno Mars
Whew! Thank goodness Jason finally got on the same relationship page as our Bethenny! It’s always advisable not to cross a woman with a kitchen full of sharp knives! Bruno Mars offers a contemporary ditty on getting wed, hopefully for all the right reasons.
Best lyric: Cause it’s a beautiful night; we’re looking for something dumb to do. Hey baby, I think I wanna marry you.
Skinny Girl – Cordovan
Bethenny created the party gal’s ultimate guilt-free beverage: the Skinnygirl Margarita. This fully mixed, bottled elixir of tequila, lime juice, and citrus liqueur boasts only 100 calories. Yes, heaven does exist. Cordovan’s electronic tune features no lyrics, which is probably a good thing because we won’t be able to sing a single word after downing a few of these babies.
Best lyric: none - instrumental
Modern Love – David Bowie
Only a few years ago, getting hitched at the apex of your pregnancy was frowned upon. Hand it to Bethenny to shun convention and go all modern on us.
Best lyric: Modern love gets me to the church on time.
She’s Having a Baby – Dave Wakeling
Survey time! Who thinks this ‘80s tune from the singer of The Beat, and General Public should be the theme song for Bethenny’s new show? Says it all, really!
Best lyric: Mixed drinks and mixed emotions. Here at the start of a brand new life. All change, she’s having a baby as lovers turn to husband and wife.
Red Dress - Sugababes
During the 2010 Red Dress Collection at New York Fashion Week, hot mama Bethenny stalked the catwalk with her baby bump wrapped in a stunning Isabella Oliver creation. Taking the time to promote heart disease awareness in women, Bethenny proved she’s not only stylish but socially conscious as well. You go, girl!
Best lyric: Cooler than the red dress, ‘cos I’m cooler, ‘cos I’m cooler.
Empire State of Mind (Part II – Broken Down) – Alicia Keys
Bethenny is the quintessential New York woman. Born and bred in the shadows of Manhattan’s iconic skyscrapers, she’s proof that you can achieve your dreams—and then some—in the city that never sleeps.
Best lyric: Concrete jungle where dreams are made of. There’s nothing you can’t do. Now you’re in New York!
Apron Strings – Everything But the Girl
We’ve seen Bethenny mother her Lhasa pup, Cookie, through three seasons of Real Housewives. Now with her long-awaited baby on board, we’ll get to see the full motherload: lullabies, diapers and sleepless nights. Aw, bless!
Best lyric: Apron strings, cold and lonely for time brings, thoughts that only will be quiet when someone clings to my apron strings. And I’ll be perfect in my way. When you cry I will be there. I’ll sing to you and comb your hair. All your troubles I will share.
I Love New York – Madonna
Bethenny adores her hometown and it appears that this love is reciprocated. Not only did her Naturally Thin book top the New York Times Best Seller list, but she also graced Times Square in a huge billboard for PETA. Talk about taking over a city and making it yours!
Best lyric: Other cities always make me mad; other cities always make me sad. No other city ever made me glad. Except New York, I love New York.
“C” is for Cookie – Cookie Monster
Sure, Bethenny has a new baby to dote on, but we faithful fans of Ms. Frankel cannot forget her original munchkin, Cookie, the Lhasa mix. It’s kinda fitting that this chef’s fur-baby is named after a perennial culinary favourite.
Best lyric: C is for cookie, that’s good enough for me!
Recipe for Love – Harry Connick Jr.
Take one famous chef, add one long-awaited marriage, mix in a birth and you’ve definitely got the recipe for love—or at the very least, one sweet reality show!
Best lyric: It doesn’t need sugar ‘cause it’s already sweet. It doesn’t need an oven ‘cause it’s got a lot of heat. Just add a dash of kisses to make it all complete. And that’s the recipe for making love.
