Bethenny Frankel and Sonja Morgan are battling over booze.
In November, Morgan unveiled plans for a liquor linecalled Tipsy Girl. Frankel, the mogul behind Skinnygirl, filed to trademark “Tipsygirl,” presumably viewing the moniker as too close to her brand’s. But Frankel’s action has been suspended by the US Patent and Trademark Office.
A rep for Frankel told us, “Bethenny owns 100 percent of the Skinnygirl brand, and this feeble attempt to trade on her brand reputation is laughable.”
Frankel tweeted Tuesday: “Every day I get a call from @PageSix I think I need to get an office over there to save them time.” She added — we assume referring to her “Real Housewives” castmates, not us — “#thesehosaintloyal.”
