The RumorFix is reporting that Bethenny, star of Bravo’sBethenny Ever After, has just signed a deal with Telepictures, the same production company behind The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Tyra, and Lopez Tonight.
Bethenny’s show is said to be currently in development; and just two months ago, Bethenny told Popeater why she wanted a talk show.
“I would like a daytime talk show because my conversation with my fans right now is through social networking, and my TV show communicates what I’m doing, but it isn’t really a dialogue or a conversation,” Bethenny told Popeater back in February. “Most of my business wishes come true,” she added.
If this news is true, it might explain why Bravo was so eager to renewBethenny Ever After for a third season despite the decline in the show’s ratings.

Bravo reality star Bethenny Frankel is probably used to being questioned about her weight by now, after all she did receive some criticism for dropping her baby weight too quickly a year ago. However it is her most recent appearance at a Bravo event this week that is now causing a bit of a stir.
Less than a day after we posted photos of Bethenny, 40, attending Bravo’s Upfront party, a ton of the post comments seem to be about her startlingly thin appearance. While Bethenny has appeared skinner in recent months, her latest appearance seems to be her thinnest yet. Below are some of the comments posted by our readers, most of whom are her fans –
“She does look a bit too skinny, but she is a busy woman.” – Real Moe
“Love Bethenny, and hope she reads this because she is looking seriously anorexic, and it is not at all attractive. She doesn’t look fresh and healthy. She’s looking worn and old. Skinny girl needs to strive for healthy girl.” – Michelle
“Bethenny is one of my favorites…yet she does like too thin…wonder if she is burning the candle at both ends.” – Jada Murray
“Bethenny looks really thin. Almost anorexic. Hope she’s taking care of herself, she’s a mommy now.” – Kari
“Bethenny is way, way, way too thin.” – MamaG
“I love Bethenny but….she is way too thin!” – Jackie
Those are just a few. Bethenny, who has penned best selling books about weight loss, has always been open about her past weight struggles. In fact, she revealed to UsWeekly back in February that she was once obsessed with dieting.
“I spent my entire life being obsessed with dieting,” she said. “Bingeing and then fasting or starving. Forbidding everything. That’s how I used to be: up and down 5 pounds every single day, to the extremes. My metabolism was totally wrecked.”
As stated in some of the above comments, Bethenny does have a busy career and is currently on a book tour in addition to being a mom. Here’s to hoping all is well with Bethenny. Below are some more photos of Bethenny before and after.

Their offenses? They were both arrested for DUIs in 2010 on separate occasions. A spokeswoman for the Florida State Attorney’s Office tells E! News that the younger Patton, Marysol — a Miami-based publicist, was arrested in January 2010 on suspicion of drunken driving.
Marysol ultimately struck a deal with prosecutors, which had her pleading no contest to a lesser charge of reckless driving to avoid jail time. She was fined $1,000 plus $581 in court costs.
As for Mama Patton, who might or might not have had many injectables to the face, she was busted for her DUI last October. E! states the 76-year-old’s arrest details are scarce, as the case ended up being dismissed on Dec. 6 when her arresting officer failed to show up to court to testify.
Oh yeah, the Real Housewives of Miami premieres February 22 on Bravo at 10/9c.
A day after the shocking report by the Hollywood Reporter (a very reputable media outlet) revealed the Kardashian clan earned an astonishing $65 million in 2010, we now have more details on just how the Keeping Up With The Kardashians family earned that amount.
We reported yesterday that Kim charges as much as $25,000 to tweet about a product or company, while commanding a personal appearance fee of $100,000 to $250,000 per event, and demanding up to $1 million internationally. Below are more detailed earnings of the Kardashians -
- The family splits a six-figure paycheck per E! episode. However, while the show might provide a steady paycheck, it serves a larger purpose of being a marketing platform for their endorsements and best-selling products, which include book, fragrance and clothing lines. Example, “Kourtney & Khloé Take Miami,” focused on the opening of a Florida outpost of their clothing store, Dash.
- Kim is rumored to have signed a seven-figure deal with a Las Vegas club owner for a handful of 2011 appearances. (Kris will not confirm.) “Kim sells,” a nightlife source says. Kim, who now has over 6 million followers on twitter tells THR, “I have a blog that has 40 million hits a month.”
- Kourtney sold her 2009 pregnancy news to Life & Style magazine for a cool $300,000! The deal included multiple stories: the pregnancy announcement, sex of the baby, birth announcement, first baby photos and body-after-baby reveal. (Life & Style declined comment.)
- Khloé and husband Lamar Odom scored close to $300,000 from OK! magazine for their wedding photos. Kris had everything from the Lehr & Black custom invitations to Khloé’s 9-carat engagement ring “donated” for the wedding, promising the vendors massive product promotion that would come from the media circus surrounding the wedding. In the event that an item wasn’t gifted, E!, it is believed, picked up the tab (E! declined comment).
- Certain paparazzi agencies have agreements with the family to stage photos, sell them and split the profits. Example – Kourtney and Scott Disick recently earned $7,500 for an afternoon laying poolside in Cancun.
- The Kardashian Kard, a prepaid credit card the sisters launched in November, gave them $3 for every card activated or sold, 25 percent of fees, a $75,000 advance on royalties and a $37,000 signing bonus. However, Kris quietly terminated the agreement when then-Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal complained the card had hidden predatory fees. The card’s issuer is now suing the family for $75 million.
To round up the interview with THR, Momager/PimpKris Jennerreveals the family has no plans of slowing down. “My fantasy is to have ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians,‘ season 26,” Kris, 55, tells THR. “Who knew it would be this profitable? I should have had more kids.“
And believe it or not, Kris reveals she worries about overexposing the family. “We definitely worry about overexposure. We never want to get to a place where people are thinking, ‘Enough is enough.’ ” We take it Kris does not read “the blogs”
So teens, the moral of this story is to stay in school, and with hard work, you too can build a $65 million fortune. Oh, who are we kidding? Feel free to purchase a camcorder, find yourself a D-list singer and have at it! We kid, we kid… we think. Though we do have to wonder if going public with a story like this is good PR for the family, which has started to receive major backlash and criticism from the public in recent weeks.

The Hillsalum Kristin Cavallarifinally comes clean on what we all suspected, which is that the MTV hit show was indeed very scripted.
In a bombshell interview with Fancast, Kristin, 24, not only admits that the Hills was fake, but she also sheds some light on how the producers of the show manipulated the cast and story lines. Kristin even admits that the producers’ manipulations started during her high school Laguna Beach days. She also gives her honest opinion on Lauren Conrad’saxed reality show.
Now that it’s over, can you reveal how much of the final season of “The Hills” was scripted?
Almost all of it. I think I can say that by now. I guess no one can get mad at me anymore.
You were not always portrayed in the most positive light on “The Hills.” You were supposedly partying too hard and using drugs. Are you concerned that damaged your reputation?
They told me they weren’t going to do any of that stuff. Basically, all that was to get ratings. I was on the cover of UsWeekly saying I need to go to rehab and that my parents wanted me to go to rehab. Both of my parents were like, “Oh, really? Why don’t they call me.” It said that I wasn’t showering. It was so unbelievable. It came and went because obviously I didn’t have a problem whatsoever. But that really pissed me off because MTV did that and there was one producer in particular who was behind all that. So that was really, really hard actually. That was one of the hardest things I ever had to go through. I’m so over it by now. But everything else, I was a willing participant. I didn’t hang out with those people. I had all my friends that were never filmed. It was work three days a week. We’d go to work, do three scenes a day, change, do another scene, and then you leave and you have your other life, your private life.
What do you think about Lauren Conrad’s new reality show being shelved for being too high brow or dull for MTV?
I didn’t know that was the reason why. I think right now MTV has “Jersey Shore” and “Skins” which are very controversial. Lauren’s a very nice girl. She’s very sweet, but that’s not always entertaining.
It seems like almost everyone who was on “Laguna Beach” had the course of their life altered. You, L.C. and Lo are reality stars. Some others have unfortunately struggled with substance abuse problems. Do you think it was, on the whole, worth it for all you to grow up in front of America?
I don’t regret anything I’ve done. It’s been hard. I was fifteen years old when “Laguna Beach” came in. I think it was really unfair how they messed with our lives like that. We were so young. We didn’t know exactly what they were doing. Watching the show really broke my heart. [When] the first episode of “Laguna Beach” [aired], I locked myself in the bathroom and was crying for hours because I was so upset about how they were portraying me. But that’s why going into “The Hills,” I knew exactly what I was getting into. I wasn’t going to let them mess with me. That’s why I went into it saying, “Whatever you guys want me to do, I’ll do. Don’t mess with me. I’ll be a participant.” They’re very shady with you. And that’s what they did when we were doing “Laguna Beach” and we were so young to be doing that. So it’s just how my life has gone. It’s the path that I’ve chosen. It’s all been worth it.
Can you give me an example of the producers being shady?
The first season of “The Hills” they had Justin and I dating on the show. Justin wouldn’t want to come film sometimes because he didn’t think that I really liked him. So the producers would have me text him, “No Justin, I really want you to come.” But I was game for it. Stephen [Coletti] was my boyfriend on “Laguna Beach.” They would be, like [to him], “We just want to get you coming up to Lauren’s house, but we’re not going to make it seem like you guys are dating.” They’d have him bring her flowers. All that stuff.
And today, Kristin is currently guest starring on ABC’s hit comedy “The Middle” (Wednesday, 8/7c) and also venturing into producing reality shows.
