Bethenny Frankel may be one of the richest reality stars of all time, but unfortunately, she isn't quite considered an A-List celebrity, despite having her own line of cocktails and her own talk show, which was proven recently.
"For a club like Tao that gets A-list celebrities, Bethenny just isn’t a big enough celeb to let in if she’s not on the list," a source close to the club's owner revealed. "If you let anyone in put people inside in jeopardy. The security guards were just doing their job, they don’t make call at door, they are just their for the protection of the guests who are on the list."
When it comes to nightclubs, it's hard for anyone to get in. Unless it's Jay-Z or Mark Wahlberg or someone of that magnitude, they aren't going to have any luck. Even B-listers, as Bethenny would likely be considered, aren't getting their chance to mingle with the city's hottest talent.
That being said, getting turned away had to be humiliating for Bethenny. She may not be a top celebrity, but if she went as far as to go to the club, she had to have assumed that she would have been let in. So, being turned away was surely a blow to her ego, which likely doesn't go along well with her show's lackluster ratings and the reports surrounding them.
Perhaps next time Bethenny opts for a night out on the town, she will call ahead and get her name added to whatever list she needs to be involved with to get in on all the exclusive action.
