Bethenny Frankel and other celebs who make the Energizer Bunny look lazy

Julie Sprankles is a freelance writer living in the storied city of Charleston, SC. When she isn't slinging sass for SheKnows, she enjoys watching campy SyFy creature features (Pirahnaconda, anyone?), trolling the internet for dance work...

For most of us, multitasking means something along the lines of balancing the checkbook while feeding our need for news (read: gossip) on the 'net. Certain celebrities, however, inexplicably manage to squeeze an unearthly amount of activity into a single day -- making us mere mortals feel... well, tired.

Bethenny Frankel. On Real Housewives of New York City, Frankel showed her grit by going toe-to-toe with botoxed behemoths and building the Skinnygirl brand empire. Today, the natural food chef's career is really cookin': Her Skinnygirl line includes cocktails, face and body products, body smoothers and shapers, nutritional items and workout videos. Oh, and she's written four self-help books. And has a brand-new daytime talk show. And has a husband and a baby. Damn, it's no wonder she stays so thin! Can we hate her yet?

Ryan Seacrest. Who could have guessed that four little words could catapult a man into a megawatt career in media? Since first uttering, "This is American Idol," Seacrest — for better or worse — has become a household name. (You can't escape him in the car, either, courtesy of On Air with Ryan Seacrest.) In addition to being a TV host and radio personality (and Julianne Hough's main squeeze), the chatty short stack is an Emmy award-winning TV producer. Yep, you can thank him for the Kardashian kraze.

Kelly Ripa. On LIVE! with Kelly (now sans Regis), Ripa effuses enough perkiness to power those heart-pumping paddles at hospitals. Somehow, with nary a bag under her pretty blue eyes, Ripa stars on the show, flits about in commercial endorsements, co-owns a production company and plays herself in appearances on sitcoms such as 30 Rock. Add in hunky hubs Mark Consuelos and the three adorable kiddos she juggles, and we're ready to strap her skinny a** down for a day.

Jennifer Lopez. This fly girl topped Forbes 2012 Celebrity 100, proving she's got the chops to contend with the biggest names in the business. Let me count the ways Jenny from the Block makes me feel like I need a caffeine stream straight to the vein... she sings, she dances, she acts, she hosts, she models, she moms (to twins, nonetheless), she amicably works with her ex and she's bedding a stud nearly half her age. Plus, her fashion line for Kohl's is actually pretty cute. PS: I wear her perfumes. There, I said it — guilty as charged.

Angelina Jolie. Can you imagine mornings around the breakfast table at the Jolie-Pitt chateau? First of all, they have six kids. Six kids. That alone makes breakfast a feat (and feast!) of epic proportions. Then, there's the matter of the daily agenda. Hmm, what to do... what to do. Well, let's see: Lately, the lush-lipped lady of the house has been holding rank as one of Hollywood's highest paid actresses, jet-setting to refugee camps to raise awareness, scripting, co-producing, directing and speaking on political panels. Whew.

Beyonce Knowles. Earlier this year, destiny brought Beyonce a child of her own, daughter Blue Ivy, thus adding mom to her blindingly bright list of achievements. The chart-topping singer shares diaper duty with hubby/rap mogul Jay-Z and somehow manages to shake out enough time for singing, songwriting (the girl literally has more Grammys than she can carry), record producing, acting, perfume launches, endorsement deals and the House of Dereon fashion line she started with her own mama. Kudos to you, B. Kudos to you.
