Bethenny's 2009 Book Sale numbers

So BETHENNY made the following TWEET this past week to settle this once & for all.: (copied from BETHENNY'S TWITTER timeline;

My publisher just told me we're on 14th printing of "naturally thin."Between that& "skinnygirl dish"we have almost half a million in print!
(edited to add) Thanks to someone who checked-out the info. that I posted, who let me know, I need to make a CORRECTION! The 114,000 figure for BETHENN'YS book sales is from JULY of LAST YEAR! Copied here are two of BETHENNY's books that made PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY, 2009 list of best selling book. The two books each earned in the 100,000+ category, which means that she sold over a hundred, but less than 250,000 copies of EACH book.
In my post below, is a *more recent PW story which updates one of the books from *about a month ago at 114,000 copies. *see correction please.
If she sold, (minimum), 200,000 copies in 2009, and TERESA'S book only printed 150,000 copies in its first run, with a second printing not out yet, AND copies from the first 150,000 of TERESA'S SKINNY ITALIAN are still available for sale, well I think that proves that what ROB said  was completely incorrect.
TERESA TWEETED something about AMAZON having copies in stock, so if they ever were on back-order, AMAZON was able to purchase more of the 150,000 original 1st printing.
