Talk show host Bethenny Frankel chats with MARIO LOPEZ, TV personality and host of “Extra,” on Tuesday, June 26th. Mario comments on Halle Berry’s $20K child support and on raising his own daughter not to be a “brat.” Plus, Mario does push-ups “bethenny”-style and the “Calling All My Girls” panel debates the word “vagina,” while Mario runs into a little trouble saying it aloud…
ON HALLE BERRY’S $20K CHILD SUPPORT AND RAISING HIS DAUGHTER TO APPRECIATE THE VALUE OF A DOLLAR:
Bethenny: Halle Berry was ordered to pay $20,000 a month to her daughter’s father….so people are kind of freaking out about that. And I want to know what you think about it?
Mario: People are freaking out because of the sum, but also because it’s a woman that’s paying it for a man. And most of the time the shoe is on the other foot. But, I know a lot of guys, who are like all right one for the guys. But, at the same time, even when it’s on the other foot. I’m like really how much money does it really take to… but I know thing whole, Bethenny, is it’s a lifestyle in which she’s accustomed to. She’s 4 years old. What is she accustomed to? Coloring?
Bethenny: But, I disagree. I think that if you have a baby. She’s probably got this big house with all these great things and the baby is going to come to her house and then is going to go over to Daddy’s house and he’s living in a studio apartment.
Mario: Keep it real…Let’s keep it real. She’ll have balance right there.
Bethenny: All right, ok.
Mario: She’ll keep it in perspective. Or else she’s going to raise a little brat. That’s the one thing. As a father, let me tell you something. The first thing I want to tell, aside from raising my daughter to treat people with respect and manners, and whathave you. I want her to really just appreciate the value of a dollar…I’m a former inner city kid, it’s like hey, most people don’t have it this good. I am so scared that I don’t want to raise a little brat…
