Back in April, we were impressed at the news that former “Real Housewives of New York City” cast member Bethenny Frankel had sold her Skinnygirl line of beverages and foods for a staggering $120 million.
But, according to the Securities and Exchange Commission, the actual sale price was nowhere near that nine-digit figure. Instead, the SEC reports that Beam Global bought Skinnygirl for a much more reasonable (though still impressive) $8.1 million.
Frankel herself, notes omg!, never went on record as saying that the company sold for $120 million. But, neither did she disabuse us of that apparently erroneous number.
