In the never-ending crusade traditional publishing is waging against real writers, New York City “housewife” Bethenny Frankel has scored a book deal. Another non-fiction work of bullshit about proper etiquette or how to mix lame cocktails, right? Nope. This time it’s a novel. Yes, Frankel is joining the ranks of the Kardashians and Snooki as yet another “author” of fiction. Meanwhile, the cultural IQ of America’s readership continues to plummet as a result of the publishing industry’s greed. God help us all. The people in charge certainly aren’t going to.
