Former “Real Housewives of New York” star Bethenny Frankel is helping out the crisis in Texas and sending aid to those in need, while Senator Ted Cruz decided to leave his state for a tropical vacation.
The reality star/businesswoman/podcast host/mother announced her company B Strong is in the process of getting things to Texas for those affected by the power outages. Bethenny, who has provided aid during Hurricane Irma & Marie, Hurricane Dorian, the Puerto Rico earthquakes, and recently helped those affected by Covid, told her followers her team
Bethenny wrote, ‘Given the current humanitarian crisis in Texas, #BStrong is loading trucks of aid to distribute to those ravaged by power outages, sub-zero temperatures, lack of and contaminated water, death, and homelessness.”
She explained, “#BStrong and @globalempowermentmission have distributed more than $80 million in crisis relief and PPE worldwide, in 3 years. We operate without bureaucratic red tape, no drama & no waiting. ?% goes directly to the effort, as always.”
The business mogul said, “Our warehouse is loaded with aid to help those who so desperately need us. YOU have literally been the heroes in all of these disaster relief efforts, digging deep when it’s hardest to do so. #thisisacrisis within a crisis. Swipe to see photos of our tireless warriors sorting and loading aid in our warehouse. Click the link in my bio or go to Bethenny.com/bstrong to donate now.”
Bethenny is out here doing work for Texans while their own Senator, Ted Cruz, decided to leave the state during the crisis and head to Cancun with his family. The fact that the Senator decided to leave Texas as hundreds of thousands are without power has left a bad taste in people’s mouths.
Padma Lakshmi tweet, “Millions of his constituents are without power and water in freezing temps, and @tedcruz is literally hopping a plane to spring break in Cancun. You can’t make this shit up.”

Writer Roxane Gay wrote, “Shout out to Ted Cruz for so generously making his next opponent’s campaign ad. You love to see it.”
“YO @CANADA TAKE BACK TED CRUZ AND SEND A REFURBISHED ROB FORD OR SOME SHIT WELL TAKE ANYTHING,” joked another.
“I realize everything in politics is memory-holed within a few hours, but it’s not gonna be too hard to remember That Time Ted Cruz Flew To Cancun While His Constituents Froze In The Dark,” said another person furious with Ted’s vacay.
