Bethenny Frankel’stalk show ‘test run’ has come to end…for now. In a new video she bids farewell to her audience, but is hopeful that the show WILL return full time. The show garnered decent ratings, especially considering it was only airing in a few select markets, and the audience seemed to connect with her no-filter style of talk. See below the jump for her tearful “goodbye for now” speech.
If Bethenny’s show does get the green light, she and Jason Hoppy will be making the move to L.A., she tells the new print issue of People. She also opened up about the roller coaster ride her marriage has been on for the last year or so.

Below you’ll find the select few reality TV stars who ventured out and about this past week! As much as our pseudo-celebs love their pictures taken, they didn’t manage to get in front of cameras over the past seven days! But we did manage to capture: Heidi Klum, Mauricio Umansky, Kendra Wilkinson, Chris Harrison,Andy Cohen, and more!
But just wait until Saturday’s Twitter post – the celebs may not have been able to find the photographers this week, but they managed to take matters into their own hands with a slew of their own pictures on Twitter!
Lisa reveals that she and her husband decided to get a gastric-sleeve surgery together together to improve their health, and after ten weeks, Lisa has lost an astonishing fifty pounds. Her husband has lost thirty-six pounds in the two weeks after his surgery. Of course. Weight loss is always easier for the dudes, right?
Well, well… it seems our Bethenny Frankel has done made herself a talk show star! Rumors have been circulating that Bethenny’s show will be locked in for the Fox 2013 nationally syndicated fall line-up. Which would mean all y’all can tune in to the “R-rated Oprah,” a legend in her own mind.
However a rep for Fox told the Hollywood Reporter that fans shouldn’t jump to conclusions just yet! “A decision has not yet been made,” a Fox TV spokesperson announced on Friday. Execs are waiting until the full six-week test run completes before making a decision on the direction of Bethenny’s show longterm. But things are looking good for Bethenny. Very good.
Bethenny has had the most successful summer test run this year and is the most successful test since Wendy Williams in 2008. And Bethenny’s numbers are even higher than Wendy’s were back in the day.
We all know that Bethenny Frankel is anything but shy and demure, but she’s certainly ramping up her game on her new talk show. Calling herself the “R-rated Oprah,” Bethenny is dishing on topics that would make Christian Grey blush…well maybe that’s a bit of a stretch. But guess what? Bethenny isn’t blushing either. On her web site Bethenny.com, she explains why her racy topics aren’t worthy of embarrassment.
Bethenny says, “I’ll make the occasional…more than the occasional inappropriate joke, but when we are really talking about something, whether it’s sex toys, or bras, or butts, we are being serious because women really want to know about this.”
The talk show host hopes to make her show a forum for what everyday women want to discuss…and as we all know, women like the down and dirty details when it comes to the bedroom.
“The reason the topics don’t make me blush is because we aren’t making a joke out of it,” continues Bethenny. To that I say, bring it on! The raunchier the better, right?

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF BETHENNY’S SHOW? TOO RACY OR JUST RIGHT?
Bravo switched up this season of the Real Housewives of New York, firing half of the cast. An insider close to the series thinks that perhaps those changes could continue if fans aren’t on board with the newest additions to the show. While an insider close to the NYDailyNews.com reveals that, for now, the franchise is seemingly safe, it reminds viewers that the cast is “constantly evolving.” The source continues, saying that the show itself is “a formula.” Perhaps Aviva Drescher should step up her game!
A Bravo source claims “it is much too early to even think about next season,” while touting that the network is “thrilled with the cast, and this Monday’s episode is high drama.”
