SOS! Reality TV star Bethenny Frankel and her husband, Jason Hoppy, were lost at sea after a sailing trip went incredibly wrong. Bethenny and Jason, along with a Bravo film crew, were aboard a sailing vessel headed towards Nantucket, Massachusetts. The boat was struck by a huge, rogue wave, causing the GPS system on the boat to malfunction.
There were about 10 people on the boat, stuck in the middle of the deep sea with no land or anybody nearby.
What was supposed to be a 7-8 hour trip, turned into a scary 20 hour ordeal. Luckily the Coast Guard was finally able to rescue them.
Bethenny and Jason luckily decided not to bring along their one-year-old daughter, Bryn Hoppy. Bethenny said, “The captain had never, in 30 years, called the Coast Guard … I was thinking, Oh, my God, Bryn! I’m not going to be there at six o’clock in the morning when she wakes up and she’s going to wonder where Mommy is and gosh, if something were to happen to me, what would happen to her. I was having horrendous thoughts…It was very scary. It was traumatic. Absolutely traumatic.”
Mrs. Frankel was recently named as the top-earning celebrity mother, even more than huge celebrities such as Angelina Jolie and Gisele Bundchen.Her Skinny Girl brand reportedly made $55 million in earnings between May 2010 and May 2011. Cha-Ching!
