Dearest Bethenny and Ellen,
I was just watching the show and thinking how I should write Bethenny a letter (something I have never done...written a letter to someone famous) when I saw that if she has inspired us we could get on the website here and tell you.
I have not only grown to love Bethenny over the many years of watching her on tv, but have been truly inspired. Inspired to take more risks, to strive to believe in love, to seek counseling and not be ashamed of it, and to believe I am a strong woman.
My parents divorced during my high school years, and my father was and still is so awful to my mother and I. I felt I was unworthy of love and would never find it. I did fall in love and married my best friend, and last month we welcomed our first baby into this crazy world. Bethenny has taught me that my past doesn't define me and that I am worthy of love.
She has to be one of the strongest women, and I am so thankful for all her honesty and genuineness she has shared with the world. Many prayers for her continued strength and her to come to see that she has FAR from disappointed any of us.
