New York Daily News: Bethenny Frankel’s lost-at-sea story has a bit of bilge in it, says the sailor who escorted her boat back to port.
Capt. Tim Russell, who skippers TowboatUS Nantucket tells us that he, not the U.S. Coast Guard, was responsible for delivering the reality TV star back to terra firma – and he’s angry that he got no credit and no tip from the multimillionaire for his services.
Frankel has gotten quite a bit of media mileage since she told E! that she and her husband Jason Hoppy were “lost at sea” for 20 hours after the sailboat on which they, her therapist and a camera crew from her Bravo show, “Bethenny Ever After,” lost its GPS after being hit by a “big wave” en route from Block Island to Nantucket over the weekend.
