Bethenny Ever After

In case you were planning on enriching your life culturally, you can put those plans on hold! Bravo has released their upcoming schedule of new and returning drugs, television shows!

The most shocking on this list of programs is the inclusion of Millionaire Matchmaker, which apparently will be returning for its sixth, yes, SIXTH season of awful, offensive, stilted, garbage. There is apparently no shortage of professional extras willing to get berated by Patti Stanger or millionaires willing to pimp out their businesses. Bravo has yet to announce a premiere date but it’s slated to return this year.

Also returning: the strangely charming Pregnant In Heels, Million Dollar Listing, Bethenny Ever After on February 20 (but we already knew that) and Inside The Actor’s Studio on January 31, the Bravo show that refuses to die despite a million Housewives franchises. Of course, in case you’ve been busy living life Tabatha Takes Over started its fourth season on January 10th, with Tabatha taking over more than just salons, but every kind of business she can find.

Slated to premiere in the spring are the following shows with my very own synopsis! If no premiere date is listed that means the show will air sometime in the spring.

  • Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis (Premieres March 14) — Jeff ran out of houses to flip, so now he is taking Jenni and Zoila on the road to redecorate people’s homes and lives. Because when you think life coach, you think an anal-retentive control freak who has alienated almost all of his loved ones! (Just kidding Jeff, I love you!)
  • The Kandi Factory (premieres March 4) — Another housewife gets her own spin-off! This time around, Kandi Burruss will show us inside her songwriting empire as she mentors young artists. And she’ll probably talk about vibrators a lot.
  • The Ring Leader (premieres February 27) — You know what we need more of on tv? Shows about wedding planning! Here’s another one, following around wedding planner Kristin Banta.
  • Shah’s of Sunset – Yet another attempt at the Miami Social/that weird Dallas show about rich young people. Only this time, with Persian-Americans.
  • Love Broker — One matchmaker on Bravo isn’t enough, now there must be two! This time, the show will follow Lori Zaslow.
  • Million Dollar Listing New York – The same douches you’ve come to expect on Million Dollar Listing, but in New York this time.
  • Around The World In 80 Plates - If Top Chef and Amazing Race had a baby. Or, as the press release says, “12 chefs competing in a culinary race across 10 countries in 44 days.”
  • Kathy — The original Bravo-lebrity, Kathy Griffin gets her very own talk show as well as two comedy specials to premiere in the spring.
  • Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding –In my mind, this show would be titled, “Deleted Scenes from this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta” but apparently Bravo thinks you care enough about Kim Zolciak to watch her plan her wedding to football player Kroy Bierman.

TELL US: WHICH SHOW ARE YOU EXCITED TO SEE RETURN? WHAT NEW SHOW WILL YOU BE WATCHING? WHICH HOUSEWIFE DO YOU THINK ALSO DESERVES A SPIN-OFF? DO YOU AGREE THAT MILLIONAIRE MATCHMAKER SHOULD BE CANCELLED?

Ready or not, we are just weeks from the Bethenny Ever After season 3 premiere!

Bravo  has just released the full season 3 trailer which can be summed up in three words — tears, tears and more tears. In what appears to be a very emotional season (also the longest one yet), Bethenny Frankel is living life in the fast lane and struggles to juggle her many roles which includes wife, mother and mogul.

The trailer also includes scenes from Bethenny’s ‘lost at sea’ saga as well as dramatic fights with hubby Jason Hoppy. You can watch the new BEA trailer below!

Bethenny Ever After returns to Bravo on Feb. 20.

Moving on to Bethenny’s nemesis Real Housewives Of New York alum Jill Zarin: She recently spoke to Celebrity Baby Scoop (disclosure: I used to freelance for them) about Bethenny and the least anticipated jewelry line of our time, her new collection, GLITTERINGS. Curiously, it is not inspired by the cult classic Mariah Carey film Glitter, but by the thousands of dollars of jewelry her husband Bobby Zarin has purchased for her, specifically the massive ring he just bought her from the Elizabeth Taylor estate:

“For the first collection, I drew inspiration from Elizabeth Taylor’s jewelry. My husband is so incredibly supportive in everything I do and when Elizabeth was selling her jewelry, I bought all the catalogues and went and saw it. My husband wanted to buy me a piece to inspire me,” says Jill.

Naturally, the conversation turned to whether or not she missed being on RHONY, the show that brought her wonderful, shrieking presence into our lives and hearts. Jill’s feelings about this seem to change with every interview, occasionally being angry and claiming the show will fail without her, and other times, she seems to look back on it bittersweetly.

This time around, she says she’ll miss the “team” she had with… Kelly Bensimon (huh?): “It’s just the timing and the place, and without Kelly [Bensimon]… we were just such a great team. We had a lot of fun together. I always look forward and I never look back. It was sort of like in high school, they force you to you graduate even if you don’t want to leave. I was forced to graduate, and it turned out to be a blessing.”

When asked if there was a feud with her true former teammate Bethenny, Jill responded in the negative, saying: “There’s no feud. Absolutely no feud. None whatsoever,” and even answering “Absolutely” to a question on moving forward with Bethenny. Do you think anyone has told Bethenny she’s moving forward on a friendship with Jill?

On the skinnygirl side, the media blitz leading to the February premiere of the third (and allegedly final) season of her reality show, Bethenny Ever After has begun! This time around, Bethenny is giving weight-loss tips for all you New Year’s Resolutions holders out there. If your idea of working out is walking to the grocery store, here’s a good tip for you from a recent appearance on Good Morning America:

“I belong to a gym and a yoga class and never go. Do your workout when you have time where you are. I do yoga in my room when Brynn goes down for a nap. Sometimes it’s 30 minutes, sometimes it’s 40 or 50 minutes. I’d rather get 30 minutes in than not go to a class. Do it consistently. Commit to it in your house. People think because I’m in good shape that I must go to the gym all the time. But I don’t have the time. I make it work at home.”

No, Bethenny, we feel you are in good shape because you are a millionaire with access to personal trainers and chefs and because being thin is kinda in your job description. Nothing wrong with that, but doing a yoga video 30 minutes a day isn’t going to make you look like Bethenny. It will just make you a bit happier and healthier.

If you are interested, Jill will be showing off her wares on HSN on Valentine’s Day.

Oh Bethenny Frankel, your hour long product promotion otherwise known as Bethenny Ever After is soon to return to us and I would say I’ve missed you but you’ve hardly been out of the spotlight for a moment this year!

The most notorious Housewife to ever grace the screens of Bravo; known as much for her wit, meltdowns and domesticity as she is for her cocktails and everything else Skinnygirl — including her endlessly dwindling waistline — spoke during the Bravo press tour panel (covered by E!) about appearing on reality TV, Russell Armstrong‘s suicide and how the drama on Housewives came to a fever pitch.

When asked if the network that made her famous had crossed the line in choosing to air Russell’s storyline after his tragic passing, Bethenny did not speak about the allegations of abuse surrounding him but admits that things have definitely changed since she initially signed onto Real Housewives of New York. She believes the shows are now attracting “more dramatic women” all angling to “be more dramatic than the next.” I totally agree with Bethenny on that one and it was a thoughtful way to dodge the question on whether or not she sees Taylor Armstrong‘s storyline as credible.

“When I came on the show, it was called Manhattan Moms. Real Housewives wasn’t even a franchise. There was one city,” Bethenny says of the early days. “We were all very new to it and we didn’t even know what it was. It was very fresh.”

“Now, people who sign on to do reality shows, they have a preconceived notion. They’ve seen it already and some people probably show a more dramatic side of their lives and are more dramatic because they want to up the ante. Certainly on Bravo the shows are real. It’s really happening.”

Luckily, the drama on-screen has prepared her for the drama in her personal life as she faced a plethora of scandals and allegations in 2011, along with some incredible successes and much happiness. “I’d say I’m definitely a survivor because of [my background],” Bethenny shares.

While she concedes that the negative media attention has been “challenging,” she doesn’t feel the need to explain herself! “There was a period when I felt that I really had to react and explain and that period has passed. A lot of that gets addressed on the show.”

In season three of her semi-popular reality show, viewers will continue to see Bethenny confronting many challenging aspects of her life. “This season is about working through it, whether it’s in your relationship or in your business,” she reveals.

“The minute that I sold part of my business, it was like someone was waiting at my door to hit me with a baseball bat in the back of the head. I do tend to thrive when I need to survive, when I’m up against adversity.”

And with the new season airing next month Bravo has just released the first preview, which features a clip of lost at sea-gate as well as showcasing some of the struggles Bethenny and husband Jason Hoppy face in their second year of marriage as they juggle parenthood with finding time for each other. You can view the video below!

DO YOU AGREE WITH BETHENNY’S STATEMENTS ABOUT THE SHOWS ATTRACTING MORE DRAMATIC WOMEN WHO COME WITH AN AGENDA? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE SECOND SEASON OF BETHENNY EVER AFTER?

CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON TO SEE THE PREVIEW!


Hi RT readers! Introducing our newest writer Maria Diaz to you all today! Some of you might be familiar with Maria as she has been blogging about Bravo shows for a while now. You will be able to read more about Maria tomorrow when we publish her bio! Please give her a great RT welcome! Thanks – RT :)

Our long national nightmare may be coming to an end; Us Weekly reports this weekend that Bethenny Ever After, former housewife and current Skinnygirl mogul Bethenny Frankels hit reality show, will be coming to an end after its third season premieres on February 20.

Before you put your monogrammed tinfoil hats on and blame this on Jill Zarin, do not fear: the source tells Us Weekly that this was a decision Bethenny came to on her own, wanting to end the show on a “high note” and instead she “is going to concentrate on her many business ventures.”

“The door is open for other projects with Bravo,” the source adds. “But as far as Bethenny Ever After goes, she feels that ending the show on a high note and ending it after this season would be best for her family. She doesn’t want her [20-month-old] daughter [Bryn] to grow up on TV.”

This was a year of almost endless bad press for Bethenny, who for a while seemed virtually untouchable, as viewers watched her go from the sad singleton begging her detached boyfriend to move in with her on Real Housewives of New York City’s first season, to happily married, with a baby and a fat bank account after she successfully sold her line of Skinnygirl cocktails to Jim Beam for a highly disputed amount of money. However, then came some lawsuits, an accusation that she faked being lost at sea for her reality show and lastly her talk show got dropped.

In any case, if there’s one thing Bethenny is good at it’s spinning just about anything in her favor (it’s why they pay her the big bucks!) and she did just that at this weekend’s Television Critics Association press junket (this is when the networks roll out previews of all the new shows, along with forcing the actors and other stars to talk to an army of members of the media).

She says all the stories are just making her stronger and it’s a testament to just how popular she is, telling E! Online: “I’m also a little bit flattered because it means I must’ve really made something out of myself, because there are that many that that want to tear me down. A lot of people want to tear me down, and if I were them, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for that to happen.”

Bethenny also spoke out about her former BFF Jill Zarin. When asked if she had any advice for the now fired Jill, she stated, “Jill Zarin is definitely a survivor. She is definitely well-to-do and I don’t think she’s worried about finding a job.”

Bethenny doesn’t end there going on to give Jill a not so subtle diss. “She was on the show for years, and in many of the cities people are only on for one or two seasons,” Bethenny explains. “It just happens that they make it a little fresher. I’m sure she’ll find exactly what she’s looking for. It probably just stings a little bit. It’s a little bit difficult. She has her own way of dealing with it. I’m sure it’s difficult for her a little bit to watch what’s going on with me. Maybe if I were in her position, that’d be difficult for me, too. She handles it the way she knows how.”

As for what we can expect on the third and reportedly final season of her reality show, Bethenny states we will get to see some marital issues between her and hubby Jason Hoppy. Though she says her marriage has “amazing ups,” it also has struggles: “I just turned 41, and I unintentionally crammed everything in,” said Bethenny. “I got pregnant, I got married, I sold part of my business, and now we’re settling into what married life really is.”

Bethenny notes that she’s still “in therapy,” and despite problems between Jason and herself, she did not request that the cameras be turned off. “We’re going there,” she added.

Regarding her future on Bravo, they are naturally tight-lipped about whether or not the third season of BEA will be her last (I’d like to suggest a follow-up entitled Everybody Hates Bethenny, where she will just deal with all her haters) and the network tells Us Weekly that: “They haven’t even finished shooting this season so no decision has been made about another one yet.”

Whatever the decision is, love her or hate her, no doubt folks will be watching Bethenny, whether to laugh, cry or just speculate on how much plastic surgery she’s truly had done.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON BETHENNY CHOOSING TO END HER SHOW? SMART? ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT SEASON 3? THOUGHTS ON HER COMMENTS ABOUT JILL & HER MARRIAGE?


Despite the lawsuits, controversies and negative media attention from the last year, reality mogul Bethenny Frankel has been named to The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment 2011: Power 100 list. Bethenny landed at spot number 100, but hey it’s better than nothing, right?

“Not too long ago, I didn’t have anything at all,” Bethenny recounts to THR. “It’s been abrupt: fame, marriage, baby, success.” As her reality show wraps filming for its third season, Bethenny has no plans of slowing down – she has gag orders to issue and fake dramas to reproduce, y’all! Perhaps the skinnygirl should slow it down as she recently claimed she is so busy she forgets to eat!

“I have a couple things on the fire, probably three or four, including a few project possibilities with Bravo. We’ve been great partners,” she reveals, adding that her first novel Skinny Dipping will be in stores in May 2012.

Despite her talk show not getting picked up, Bethenny is not daunted as she has other development deals in process and even hints that she may make her life story into a movie! “I’ve been approached,” she shares, “but you have to make the right choices. I’m not going to force anything.” Oh sweet lemonaide, that is just too much!

Moving on, the Bethenny Ever After star will stop at nothing to indoctrinate the public with Skinnygirl and force upon us a new product pretty much every day. We’ve been shape weared, and cleansed inside out, and boozed up, and skin cared and snackbar-ed, and now dressed.

For those of you who are tired of the Bravo Home Shopping Network (a.k.a. all of their shows), I have some unfortunate news: Skinnygirl now produces “loungewear.” Oh, yuck yay! Bethenny announced the addition of the newest products on her website. The collection of Skinnygirl garments features yoga pants, a tank and a t-shirt — all emblazoned with her logo, of course! Bethenny advertised that the collection is “perfect to workout in, run errands in, or simply relax in.”

Cafemom reviewed the products and wonders just what kind of woman wants pants with Skinnygirl on the thigh? Their assessment: “Bethenny’s made some awesome products in her day, but this line of clothes misses the mark big time. Because the last thing I want people reading on my clothes is Skinnygirl. I feel like it’s just begging for judgment.”

“Maybe she [Bethenny] wants her clothes to shame us into living the Skinnygirl life,” the reviewer wonders. “But I want my clothes to make me feel good, not guilty, don’t you?” Perhaps the reviewer is biased, but she has a point. If I want clothes that make me feel guilty, I’ll put on my pre-baby leather pants. A photo of the Skinnygirl Loungewear collection is below.

ARE YOU IMPRESSED WITH BETHENNY’S LATEST ACHIEVEMENT? WOULD YOU PURCHASE SKINNYGIRL LOUNGE WEAR? WOULD YOU WATCH A MOVIE ABOUT BETHENNY’S LIFE?


Bethenny Frankel has built a franchise and identity on being the Skinnygirl, but now that the reality star’s life is in turmoil she’s become the TOO Skinnygirl! In today’s not so surprising news the media is questioning Bethenny’s behavior yet again — this time for her gaunt appearance!

Bethenny has always been on the teeny side causing fans to wonder about her weight and lifestyle choices for years — particularly because of some controversial statements regarding losing and maintaining weight in her book Naturally Thin.

Life & Style is reporting that the itty-bitty former Housewife has insiders “concerned” about Bethenny over-doing it, despite claims that she doesn’t do anything “extreme”, and preaches “everything in moderation.” Reality Tea has reported that Bethenny’s weight has dropped severely in recent years.

According to the mag all the upheaval surrounding the brand and image she has worked so hard to cultivate is taking a toll on Bethenny, who an observer notes looked “very thin” at a recent appearance. “Her arms were particularly tiny and frail. She looked almost sickly.” Another eyewitness confirms: “Bethenny is scary skinny in person. She looks emaciated and ill.”

An insider speculates that with Bethenny losing control of her “world” she is taking it out on her diet and has become “obsessive” about portion size and has taken to eating snacks, like small bags of pretzels, instead of a meal or she claims she forgot to eat. “Because I’m so busy, I’m not always hungry,” she confessed to the mag. Bethenny has made no secret of her struggles with her weight, telling anyone who would listen that her mother, Bernadette Birk, sent her to weight-loss camp as a child and that her classmates called her a “whale.”

Additionally, Bethenny is desperate to regain the public’s positive image of her as the “rags to riches, little girl lost who made it big” and is apparently using her weight to gain acceptance from the media and fans.”Bethenny’s in a panic,” an insider reveals. “She’s being attacked left and right for not being real.”

Indeed, Bethenny’s fear of public rejection has left her so worried she’s hired help! “She’s so frantic to improve her image, she’ s hired image consultants to guide her through 2012.” Well, I say she needs it with all the nonsense she’s been embroiled in lately!

While insiders are claiming Bethenny’s life is falling apart the Bethenny Ever After star recently blogged about all she has to be thankful for. After imparting her advice for a healthy and simple holiday meal, Bethenny noted her appreciation for her amazingly patient husband Jason Hoppy, her daughter Bryn and dog Cookie.

“I’m most thankful for my family, and in particular my beautiful baby girl Bryn. She has changed my perspective on life. She has made me more grateful and aware, and has given me different purpose than I had before,” Bethenny wrote.

“I’m grateful for a loving and supportive husband who is a great father to Bryn and a good friend to me,” she added. “I’m especially grateful to Cookie who has been with me through the most difficult and influential stages of my life. She is woman’s best friend and I love her as much as a child.”

I’m glad Bethenny is recognizing all the people who put up with her cray-cray and still love her for the wack-a-doo she sometimes is! Hopefully 2012 will be a more positive year for Team Frankel or I’m predicting she may go the crash and burn route of the Kardashians with too many negatives and too many scandals overshadowing the positives! Best of luck Bethenny in getting things on track and remember: eat some holiday cookies!

THOUGHTS ON THE ARTICLE – DO YOU BELIEVE BETHENNY IS TOO THIN? IS SHE JUST REACTING TO STRESS OR DOES SHE HAVE A PROBLEM? DO YOU THINK 2012 WILL IMPROVE FOR BETHENNY OR ARE FANS TIRING OF HER CONSTANT DRAMA?

Bethenny Frankel’s dreams of breaking into the talk show market may officially be dashed.

The New York Post is reporting that after Bethenny’s talk show “failed to sell into syndication” it has been dropped by its producer Telepictures! “Several stations expressed interest, but there’s probably not room for Bethenny’s show this year,” a source close to Telepictures revealed. Warner Bros (which owns Telepictures) declined to comment on the state of Bethenny’s show.

Unfortunately Bethenny’s blunt, abrasive manner failed to attract the attention of major networks (despite receiving some help from a so-called “nice coach”) and was then overshadowed when several other celebrities with more cred, such as Katie Couric, Steve Harvey, and Anderson Cooper were snapped up for syndication.

As we previously reported, Bethenny was hoping her “advice-based” show would land a spot on NBC, the network that owns Bravo, but was bumped in favor of Survivor host Jeff Probst’s new show, which did well in test markets.

While the Bethenny Ever After star’s show was being test-marketed hoping to gain “traction” (or interest from networks) she found herself in the midst of a series of PR Blunders including a couple of Skinnygirl-related lawsuits and that whole lost-at-sea fiasco where she claimed she was forced to get a “gag order” against the captain of a rescue boat who disputed her version of events. These instances could have been explanations for Bethenny not getting the green-light from networks.

Yet all is not lost for Bethenny as she has supposedly received a few opportunities for other “TV types” now that the syndication deal is over. An insider is reporting she’s received offers from both cable stations and other networks.

Personally, I believe cable is a much better market for the over-the-top Bethenny who may not be able to taper her personality down enough for mainstream markets. I also believe she would do better in a panel-format show like The View.

Bethenny has not commented on the latest bad news – YET!

In other Bethenny news, Skinnygirl is now launching another product no one needs — Skinnygirl Face & Body. Bethenny Tweeted the exciting news: “Proud to announce: Skinnygirl Face & Body gift sets are @Walmart! A perfect holiday gift for Skinnygirls of all ages!”

Yes, just perfect! Named for her “famous” cocktails, fans can choose from a Sangria set or a Margarita set each of which contains a body wash, lotion and a body scrub. A picture is below. Oh, gee – I hope I get one for Christmas.

THOUGHTS ON BETHENNY’S LATEST TALK SHOW DILEMNA? DO YOU THINK SHE SHOULD ATTEMPT ANOTHER TV PROJECT OR SHOULD SHE STICK TO REALITY TV? WOULD YOU TRY HER NEW BODY CARE LINE?


Bethenny Frankel has been the subject of constant controversy as of late; it seems every other day she is embroiled in some sort of issue causing a media tail-spin! Needless to say — it’s been quite a year for diet drink maven and wannabe mogul.

Bethenny has made no secret of her desire to leave reality TV behind in the hopes of landing her own talk show. Recent reports stated Mama Frankel had shot a pilot for her own show, but was having trouble hooking a network even going so far as to hire a coach to soften the abrasive, no-nonsense style that made her famous in the reality world.

The Bethenny Ever After star’s dreams of being the next Oprah were apparently closer than we all thought, as The Hollywood Reporter is revealing NBC was jonesing to pick up some new talk show blood and Bethenny made a short list of contenders that included Survior host Jeff Probst and Ricki Lake (formerly of talks show’s pasts, currently of Dancing With The Stars).

The Hollywood Reporter describes that launching a talk show is a precarious situation for a network with all the competition from already established shows, thus they must carefully weigh who will gain the most traction with viewers nationwide. Basically, a show must stay in a holding tank and be demoed across a variety of markets before it is “cleared” in the “three-quarters of the country” needed to garner a launch. Once it gets a “launch” a network will back it and air the show.

“If NBC stations pass on her Warner Bros. Telepictures’ show, the former Real Housewife of New York could find it difficult to get the clearances she needs to launch despite support from Ellen DeGeneres,” THR explains of Bethenny’s predicament.

Well, unfortunately for Bethenny it seems NBC made the decision to go with Jeff’s show instead, while Ricki’s show is headed for the Tribune group of stations that helped launch Anderson Cooper’s now popular talk show. “This shuffle is probably bad news for Frankel who must now struggle to find enough carriage to make a launch likely,” the article alleges. Currently there is no expected launch for Bethenny’s show as she is still waiting to be picked up by major networks.

And there is more bad news for the reality star resulting from continued scrutiny over the contents of her “all natural” Skinnygirl Margarita! The New York Post is reporting an expanded lawsuit from former fans of the product, taking issue with the label’s assertion that the cocktail is concocted using “100 percent blue agave tequila.”

Christopher Rapcinsky and Erin Baker, currently taking action against the brand, have amended their $10M class action lawsuit for having “falsely claimed the drink was ‘all natural’ with ‘no preservatives’.”

Upon further investigation into the tequila used to produce the beverage the duo discovered it was actually “a lower quality and purity tequila by-product called mixto — essentially a mash of tequila and some unknown additives (rarely organic) which may comprise as much as 49 percent of the final mixed liquor.” Blech. All-natural, say what?

The duo’s lawyer, Tom Mullaney stated: “100 percent blue agave is not stuff people mix.” Additionally, he says comparing the mix to pure tequila is like “comparing Thunderbird wine to a fine Chianti. They’re both wine, but very different.” I’ll let you wine connoisseurs argue the veracity of his statement, as I’m an $8 a bottle kind of a girl.

The suit isn’t entirely blaming Bethenny (who is not named as a defendant) for the misconceptions, as it notes the discrepancies began occurring after Beam Global acquired the brand and the label changed at some point to say the drink was made “with premium Blue Agave Tequila,” removing the “’100 percent’ reference,” which the suit claims is “highly misleading.”

“Only time and pretrial discovery will tell what was really in the ‘tequila’ that went into the phony ‘all-natural’ margarita. What is certain is the fact that consumers would not have purchased Skinnygirl Margarita had they known it was manufactured with inferior mix to tequila,” the suit insists.

Beam Global is fighting back calling the suit “frivolous” and defending the label’s claims that the cocktail is made with premium tequila. “We will defend our case vigorously, and we are fully confident we will prevail,” the company’s rebuttal stated.

Bethenny’s reps have declined to comment on this latest attack on her product and she has not confronted the controversy via Twitter, opting instead to promote more products in the Skinnygirl line-up. Perhaps all the drama surrounding Bethenny might have something to do with networks passing on her talk show?

THOUGHTS ON BETHENNY’S LATEST DILEMNAS? ARE YOU SURPRISED HER TALK SHOW HAS NOT BEEN PICKED UP – WOULD YOU WATCH? THOUGHTS ON THE LAWSUIT: FRIVOLOUS OR WITH MERIT?
