(Newser) Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny Frankel announced her engagement over the weekend—but failed to mention she’s also pregnant. It will be the first child for the 38-year-old reality star, who is also—coincidentally?—getting her own spin-off show. A source close to Frankel tells Perez Hilton more than just her biological clock compelled Frankel to get pregnant: “Bethenny premeditated all of this! She got pregnant and got engaged all for her own show.” Sigh.
