It's been a rough few weeks for former Bethenny Ever After star Bethenny Frankel. Not only is her divorce from Jason Hoppy becoming more and more contentious, there are rumors that things aren't peachy keen with the upcoming season of her daytime talk show.
Page Six is reporting that there is some major discord surrounding the talk show which is helmed by the reality star turned mogul…and Bethenny's attitude is to blame. Sources close to the show tell the site that Bethenny is "very particular and difficult," and it's already turning off some of her employees.

The show, which is now in pre-production for the upcoming season, is having some major issues. Insiders say that Marilyn, the executive assistant, has already quit after just a few weeks of working with Bethenny. Why? The speculation is that poor Marilyn couldn't put up with her boss' demands.
One source shares, “Marilyn quit after less than a month because Bethenny was so mean to her. Marilyn has a lot of experience working with celebrities and complained she had ‘never been treated this badly.’"
The show insider continues, “They have been interviewing other assistants, who had to sign nondisclosure agreements and were told not to talk to Bethenny unless she talks to them first. They have interviewed more than 40 people, but she doesn’t like anybody.”
Of course, Bethenny's camp is spinning Marilyn's departure differently. While a Bethenny source confirms that the assistant "didn't work out," he or she adds, “They are testing out assistants. It is a very particular job with a lot involved, managing Bethenny’s TV and business interests. But there is absolutely no division between Bethenny and the staff on the show. For many of them it is a dream job. There’s lots of energy and excitement.” And fear, apparently!
The new season of Bethenny's talk show premieres on September 9th. I need to set my DVR…or…
