The Skinnygirl Margarita Lawsuit

Whole Foods has pulled all Skinnygirl Margarita products off its shelves and a class action lawsuit has been filed against the brand most associated with Bethenny (above photo)

As first reported by TMZ, Reneta Bonar claims she and millions of other consumers have been fooled by Beam Global Spirits for making "deceptive statements" on the bottle of Skinnygirl, specifically the label that reads "ALL NATURAL."

Boner says the preservative sodium benzoate is present in the drink and is suing to force Beam to "engage in a corrective advertising campaign." And of course she wants some money for all the damages this has caused.

Beam responds with: "In today's litigious society, nothing is surprising. The litigation filed in relation to the labeling of Skinnygirl Margarita is frivolous. We will defend our case vigorously, and we are fully confident we will prevail."
