Reality Star Bethenny Frankel Revealed as Buyer of $4.2M Soho Loft

If you’ve been following the roller coaster that is reality television star Bethenny Frankel‘s life, you know that she started out as a single, struggling entrepreneur on “Real Housewives of New York City.” She then launched the Skinny Girl margarita, sold the brand to Jim Beam for a reported $120 million, got married and had a daughter, filed for divorced, and rejoined the Housewives. On the recent season of the show, she considers herself “the richest homeless person in Manhattan,” as her ex-husband stayed in their $5 million Tribeca apartment at 195 Hudson Street.

We think Frankel’s use of the word “homeless” is a little ridiculous considering she was splitting her time between lavish Hamptons rentals and high-end Manhattan hotels, but the Daily News has revealed that the Skinny Girl is actually the owner of apartment 2D at 22 Mercer Street in Soho. A nomad no more, Frankel is waiting to move into the gorgeous loft, which she bought about seven months ago for $4.2 million, until renovations are complete. But judging by the photos of the home, we can’t imagine there’d be that much to change.

The spacious sunken living room has 14-foot ceilings, double mahogany framed arched windows, and a large wood burning fireplace. The dining room is part of this main living space, and the open Bulthaup kitchen is directly adjacent. It features large floor-to-ceiling pantry space with frosted glass doors, a massive wine rack, and high-end appliances.

Throughout the 2,392-square-foot home are wide-plank walnut flooring, custom floor-to-ceiling closets, and modern light fixtures. The charming built-in desks in the hallway make great use of the otherwise wasted space, as does the cozy window seat.

There are two bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths in the unit. According to footage on the Real Housewives, Frankel is working with designer Aaron Kirsten on the apartment renovation.

    What a horrible layout! You have to walk down about 50 feet of hallway past both bedrooms, and then past the kitchen, just to get to the main living area?

    Why list her complete address? There are a lot of crazies out there!
