Why I Will Never Be Famous

A Grace Full Life

The next three Friday’s will be a trilogy of posts about a trip my friend Jen won to New York City to visit the Bethenny Frankel show, which is now no longer a show. If you’ve never heard of her just know that she began her career as a reality star on the Real Housewives of New York City and now is the creator of the SkinnyGirl brand. 
I have anxiety and I talk about it freely now on this blog and in my life but at this time, I wasn’t really talking about it openly.

The list is long and mighty.
As to why I will never be famous.
For one, I don’t like high heels.
Or sushi.
And I definitely don’t own a Vespa.

But I got an email last Friday afternoon and in a nutshell, the public relations person from Bethenny…

  1. I’m a big Bethenny fan; always have been.
    SHITSNACKS totally needs a comeback because I’m digging the shitsnacks.
    Did I use the phrase correctly? Oh, who cares, right?

    Do we all have social anxiety? A little? Because reading this, I too was nervous about our cocktail party with Bethenny. I’m not usually an anxious person, but this worried me. I too might end up with my underwear on the outside, which worked for Madonna, so why not us?

    Well, I don’t know how this story ends, so I’m looking forward to it.

    1. Shitsnacks really works for any occasion, doesn’t it?

      I didn’t realize how many people had social anxiety until mental illness became less of a stigma. I also didn’t realize how much less of a stigma it became within just the last seven years until after reblogging this post! Wow. ❤️

  2. I’m an introvert. I can pass as an extrovert but for the most part would prefer not to meet any famous people. I don’t remember there being a Bethenny Frankel show, but in the same situation as you were in I’d feel the same social anxiety. Whatever became of her, anyway? And who’s Jen?

    1. Lmao you’re making me laugh so hard right now.

      I guess I should have introduced her since I really haven’t mentioned her much as of late. She’s a blogging friend I met years ago.

      Social anxiety is so real but I didn’t know it had a name back then. There needs to be a social anxiety blog meet up but then no one would show up. 😂

  3. WHAT?? How fun. I never wear makeup and I totally get the ‘how can I get away from all THIS?’ feeling.

    So excited to read about your New York adventure.

    I HATE clothing that threatens to reveal my unmentionable. I once went to a wedding and brought black shoes with a chunky heel but midway thru the wedding I realized the shoes were really meant to be paired with pants, not a black dress. What can I say? I had a couple little kids at that point. No teenage girls to guide me. I did NOT get out much.

    1. Omg, always looking for an excuse. Always. 😂

      Today I had a doctor appointment in the city and thought it might be fun to wear makeup since I hadn’t worn any since, I don’t know, May? I don’t even have eyeliner or mascara or lipstick any more. 😂
