Real Housewives of New York City‘s Bethenny Frankel weighs in on food, fat, and her new book The Skinnygirl Dish.

Which area has the best food: New York, New Jersey, Atlanta, or Orange County?
New York has the best food in the world. Hands down. Maybe France or Italy beats it.

Congratulations on your pregnancy. Complete the following sentence: ”My baby is going to come out craving…”
Oranges. It’s the most consistent thing [I’m eating].

You can only use one cookbook for the rest of your life. Which is it?
It would have to be the biggest one, because I want to have the most recipes. I love the Barefoot Contessa, but her books are small. So maybe The Joy of Cooking.

What diet book is best used as a coaster?
Probably one of the first Atkins books, telling you to eat, like, 19 pieces of bacon and eggs to be skinny.
