In mid-September, Bravo star Bethenny Frankel claimed that she had been on board a boat off the coast of Massachusetts when a wave hit the boat, knocking out its GPS system and putting herself and those on board in serious, life-threatening danger.
Frankel even went on Ellen to talk about the incident (above.)
Now, a reporter at JewishJournal.com is claiming the whole story is a lie.
The reporter says she interviewed Tim Russell, the man called upon to give Bethenny's boat a tow when it needed help. Russell said when he arrived the boat and its GPS system were functioning fine. Writes the reporter:
- "The Coast Guard confirmed the GPS was working and the boat was not in distress, so they suggested they call a tow company as there was no need for them to assist. ... When Tim got there, he saw that the boat was fine. ... They did not need a tow as the boat was fine. ... It was faked for her reality show. None of it was real and everyone was fine."
Who do you believe?
Bethenny was filming the third season of her Bravo show.
