Bethenny had said in past interviews that she intended to marry fiance,Jason Hoppy, after giving birth, so why the sudden change? Well the NYPost is reporting Bethenny changed the date of her wedding to fit Bravo’s shooting schedule for her upcoming reality show – ‘Bethenny’s Getting Married?’
The Post reports Bethenny’s wedding will take place at the Four Seasons and the invitations which have been sent out stated the following - “This event will be videotaped and re corded for use in and in connection with the television pro gram tentatively entitled ‘Bethenny’s Get ting Married?’ By attending, you are consenting to the use of your name, voice and likeness in and in connection with ‘Bethenny’s Getting Married?’ and any other production, in any and all media now known or later devised, worldwide, in perpetuity, including in advertisements and promotions.”
Another “source” is however telling The Post Bethenny might have had another reason for pushing up her wedding date. “If she’s a heavily pregnant bride, she’ll get more attention. The other housewives are so grossed out by how fake she is, none will attend the wedding unless Bravo makes them,” says the insider. “She doesn’t even want the other wives at her wedding. She feels she’s a bigger star.”
Bethenny, 39, who is six months pregnant, was one of the celebrities to walk the runway at the Heart Truth Red Dress fashion show. “I had the best time,” said Bethenny after walking the runway. And as for her pregnancy, “I love it. I love pregnancy and the bump and the whole thing.”
So what about the question on everyone’s mind, which is what is the sex of her baby? Bethenny explained, “My fiancé (Jason Hoppy) doesn’t want to find out.” Not to worry as Bethenny’s whole pregnancy ordeal will be chronicled on her soon to come reality show – Bethenny’s Getting Married?
As for her volatile relationship with former BFF Jill Zarin, Bethenny doesn’t rule out a reconciliation saying: “I just don’t know what will happen between Jill and I.”
The 3rd season of The Real Housewives of NYC is set to premier March 4th.

“It feels great, because I’m with the right person,” says Bethenny. “He’s may be regretting it because it’s been beyond a week and he’s in panic mode – [but] no, we’re enjoying it.
Jason’s proposal caught Bethenny off guard. Bethenny returned home after shooting Housewives and promoting her Skinny Girl Magaritas to find over a hundred lit votive candles and rose petals across the hallway of her apartment. Jason dressed up Bethenny’s pooch Cookie in a pink bow. He then got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.
Bethenny’s ring is an 8-carat sparkler with a 6 ½-carat pear-shaped center stone flanked by two side stones from Manhattan jeweler Kristin Farrell.
Bethenny jokes, “I made him pick them up. This was the first thing we had to resolve.”
The couple who first met in December 2008 at the Tenjune nightclub have yet to set a wedding date.

The NYPost is reporting that Bethenny Frankel will be getting her own reality show on Bravo. The big shocker however is they are also reporting this means Bethenny will no longer be on The Real Housewives of New York City. Yikes! Will the show still be worth watching without her?
According to the Post, her show will be titled “Skinny & The City.” A source said, “The show will follow her planning her wedding to [fiancé] Jason Hoppy.” Her rep confirmed a while ago that the two would be getting married.
Life & Style also reports Frankel is penning a second book about “romance, money and friends” inspired by her feud a with co-star Kelly Bensimon. Bravo had “no comment.” A picture of Bethenny and Jason below -
