FETING BETSEY: Anyone at Betsey Johnson’s 70th birthday party event Tuesday night wondering why all the cameras were around need wonder no more. Johnson confirmed that she and her daughter, Lulu, are in the midst of filming a reality show for Style Network, set to premiere in early spring 2013. Called “The Betsey and Lulu Show,” the cameras are following the mother-daughter duo through their colorful lives. “I don’t watch them, reality shows I mean, but I appreciate them,” said Johnson. “And it’s great to have the documentation of what’s going on for me so other people can share it.”

Johnson lamented it’s been a challenging time, what with the changes in her business over the past year, but with her typical enthusiasm she noted, “I’m very happy right now. This new situation is the icing on the cake for me.”
