Inside Bethenny Frankel and Sonja Morgan's Boozy Battle: Tipsy Girl Line 'Will Never Happen'


People.com:
This may be the last straw for Real Housewives of New York stars Bethenny Frankel and Sonja Morgan.

In light of recent litigation by Morgan's new liquor line Tipsy Girl against Frankel and her Skinnygirl brand, a source close to the situation tells PEOPLE that claims made by Morgan's business partner are exaggerated.

The source says that Peter Guimaraes' statements to Page Six that Frankel wants to prevent he and Morgan from moving forward with Tipsy Girl is merely an attempt to drum up publicity. 


Frankel, 45, believes the pair are attempting to "use [The Real Housewives of New York City] to have a fake story," the source says.

Page Six reported that Skinnygirl filed court documents to trademark "Tipsygirl," a move Guimaraes called "underhanded."

"[Frankel] is threatened by this Tipsy Girl brand, which is not a copycat nor competition for Skinnygirl," he wrote to the newspaper. "We are not advocating that you will lose weight with our product."

The source tells PEOPLE, however, that Frankel "doesn't care" about the line and is more concerned about Guimaraes and Morgan using her brand for media attention.
