Bethenny Frankel, a self-described "health foodie" and Fox host met former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin at the Four Seasons Hotel in West Lake Village, California last week and treated her to some Skinnygirl Cocktails. Frankel, who specializes in healthy lifestyles, parenting, and giving back to the community, is the founder of the Skinnygirl brand. Todd Palin was being taped for Stars Earn Stripes last week, which could be why Gov. Palin was in California. According to US Magazine Weekly, Frankel was "taping a segment for 102.7's KIIS FM's On Air with Ryan Seacrest." Six people had won the station's contest to meet Frankel.

Frankel did not want to let this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity slip. "Sometimes you have to intervene in your own life. You have to say, 'I'm stopping down. I'm going to be 45 minutes late to see the baby," she said in her video.
She approached Gov. Palin who was poolside. The former Alaska Governor knew who Frankel was, and the two discussed their marriages, motherhood and "things women talk about" for over a half hour. Frankel described the experience as "surreal" in her video. She could not believe it was really happening. "They looked like old girlfriends catching up, relaxing and hanging out," a witness told US Magazine Weekly.
