Do you really want to know how you look in those pants? You need to shop with a sharp-tongued, but well-meaning girlfriend like Bethenny Frankel of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of New York City." The multi-tasking non-housewife Housewife (single, no kids, health foodie, drink designer, entrepreneur, author) hits the Twin Cities next week and there are a couple of opportunities to see her, and, oh yes - shop with her (momentary pause to appreciate what a weird world this is). Frankel will headline the "Shop Like a Socialite" event from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 16 at Corset Boutique in Hopkins. Tickets are $50 and include a $10 store gift card and a free copy of Frankel's best selling book, "Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting." Bonus: everything in the store will be 30 to 75 percent off. Order tickets here.
On Wednesday, June 17 at 6 p.m., catch Frankel at the Mall of America Rotunda where she will sign copies of her book.
