Bethenny Frankel shows love for cooked goose in Westerly

It looks like another celebrity is hitting the Rhode Island restaurant scene.

Television personality Bethenny Frankel stopped by The Cooked Goose in Westerly on Sunday and gave the “Mom and Pop” spot a rave review on her TikTok.

Frankel isn’t known for his restaurant reviews, so this can only mean one thing.

The cooked goose is so good.

Who is Bethany Frankel?

Bethenny Frankel is a television personality, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and author, best known as an original cast member of the Bravo reality television series The Real Housewives of New York City.

Self-described as an “accidental influencer,” Frankel has amassed a devoted following. You may recognize her from the Housewives franchise or The student: Martha Stewart, but this New Yorker also has a passion for philanthropy.

What is Bethany Frankel doing in Rhode Island?

Frankel was previously engaged to Boston businessman Paul Bernon, but the couple split two months ago, so a getaway with the couple is out of the question.

It was announced on Tuesday that Frankel would make her television film debut in the upcoming Lifetime TV thriller Danger in the dorm with a premiere date of June 16.

Did production responsibilities bring her to the Ocean State?

Westerly is a quiet, secluded seaside town. It’s entirely possible that this celebrity was looking for some R&R and a good meal and found both thanks to Cooked Goose.
