During the TCA 2011 Winter Press Tour going on this week, Bravo announced several premiere dates and series renewals on Thursday.

The biggest announcement however came in the form of the widely talked about 6th season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Bravo confirmed yesterday that it will be returning on Sunday, March 6 at 10pm.

Other big announcements included the return date of Bethenny Frankel’s show Bethenny Ever After (season 2), and the renewals of popular shows The Rachel Zoe Project (season 4), Millionaire Matchmaker (season 5) and Flipping Out (season 5). The recent season finale of Millionaire Matchmaker averaged 2.2 million viewers, the highest ratings ever in the show’s history, so the return is not a surprise.

Additionally, Bravo announced that casting is set to begin on the ninth season of Top Chef and that Top Chef Masters will return later this year for a third season with host Curtis Stone. Other shows renewed include Work of Art: The Next Great Artist. New shows coming this year include Platinum Hit with Kara DioGuardi which will debut this Summer and Rocco’s Dinner Party will air later this year. New series Million Dollar Decorators and Pregnant in Heels are both set to premiere in April.

A list of the shows announced with return dates below -

  • Million Dollar Listing – February 3 at 9 p.m
  • The Real Housewives of New York – February 15 at 10 p.m
  • Real Housewives of Orange County – March 6 at 10pm
  • Bethenny Ever After – February 28 at 10 p.m

Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen will also be moving to new nights, Tuesdays and Sundays, though no official date was announced for the move.

Bethenny Frankel is once again showing off her post baby bikini body!

The Bethenny Getting Married star was photographed in Los Angeles as she did a poolside photo shoot for a Canadian magazine. “You shouldn’t dread working out,” Bethenny, 40, told Redbook in a recent interview.

‘Exercise is like an old friend: You may not be able to see that friend all the time, but you’re not mad when you see them, you’re happy, and you get right back into it,” she added. More bikini photos of Bethenny below.

Moving right along to Phaedra Parks. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star recently showed off her home to Wetpaint in a new photo shoot. Phaedra reveals she has owned the five bedroom and five bathroom Atlanta estate for nine years. “My interior design is transitional,” she says. “My [home's] interior blends traditional and contemporary characteristics that are unified by color and design choices.”

Phaedra reveals she spends most of her time in her kitchen and master suite. “I am definitely a self-proclaimed Southern belle, as you can tell from my home,” says Phaedra, adding that she did not use a designer though she did consult with one. Phaedra also reveals her love for wallpaper, which is rather obvious from looking at her home photos.

It seems Real Housewives of New York City star Kelly Bensimon barely escaped an accident last night while driving through a blizzard.

As you all may know by now, the Northeast region is experiencing a pretty harsh blizzard with many government officials warning citizens to stay off the roads. It seems Kelly did not receive these warnings as she tweeted the following Monday morning – “During the blizzard, we spun out in my Mercedes on the LIE. I was petrified. It was like skating not driving. I need a #safe car.”

While “safe cars” are nice to have, we also believe a functioning brain and the ability to know to stay home during dangerous blizzards would also suffice. Kelly then added that the blizzard started during her drive home. “Most dangerous times to drive are when it starts to snow/ rain. We were driving home as the blizzard started.did a 360. so scarey.” Right.

Moving right along to Kelly’s former costar Bethenny Frankel. Apparently Bethenny lost some weight during her stint on the Skating With The Stars disaster as she is now looking to pack on some pounds.

“Eating enchiladas at “on the border”mex grill at 10am.need to gain weight.I look like magda from “something about mary,” tweeted Bethenny. Looks like Bethenny will have to go against her famous trademark – “Taste everything, eat nothing” for the time being.

It also seems Bethenny will continue to expand her ever growing empire. “I’m developing a healthy cleanse&purification daily system for you.JAN!” tweeted Bethenny when a fan asked about her thoughts on a good 3 day cleanse.

It’s over, it’s finally over! The finale of Skating With The Stars aired last night during which soap star Rebecca Budig was crowned the winner of the ABC show.

“I’m shocked, really I am!,” said Rebecca. “Bethenny and I were talking about it, really…I’m just shocked. I owe all of this to Fred, who is an unbelievable teacher. I’ve said it a hundred times…I owe it all to you.” Fred Palascak was Rebecca’s professional partner.

Rebecca’s win wasn’t exactly a shocker to others as she scored a perfect score of 60—30 for technical, 30 for artistic impression on her final skating dance — the only perfect score of the season.

The runner-up was Bethenny Frankel, who surprised viewers by beating out Jonny Mosley on Monday night to make it into the finals. “Rebecca totally deserves it, she should be a real ice skater,” said Bethenny who also fared well on finale night, earning a total of 51 points for her dance.

Now that the show is officially over following a rather long 5 weeks, it is extremely unlikely the show will be returning for a second season. Why? Well, the ratings were simply a disaster. SWTS averaged about 4 million viewers per episode this season, a far cry from the 20 million viewers per episode it’s counterpart Dancing With The Stars averaged. In fact, the Monday night finale episode only brought in 3.37 million viewers.

In case you’re not aware by now, Bethenny Frankel is no longer a housewife on the Real Housewives of New York City.

Though Bravo wanted Bethenny, the clear fan favorite, to return for the show’s fourth season (currently being filmed), Bethenny decided she no longer wanted to do the show, instead opting to make guest appearances here and there a la Lisa Wu Hartwell on the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

According to a new report by Popeater, Bravo is now worried about what effect Bethenny’s absence will have on the show’s new season. “Bethenny is the biggest star the franchise has ever produced,” a Bravo insider reveals. “She not only connected with the most fans, but she also allowed the audience to laugh at how ridiculous the other ladies are. Without Bethenny making fun of the cast, the show just won’t be as much fun.”

Popeater adds that a main concern for Bravo is who will now call out Kelly Bensimon on her erratic/crazy/entertaining behavior. “Without Bethenny on the show, Kelly’s strange behavior is no longer funny, it’s just annoying,” adds the source.

Apparently Bravo became increasingly concerned after catching a glimpse of how the new season is going. Based on what they saw, they decided to ask Bethenny to return for more than the six appearances she is contractually obligated to make.

Bethenny, who is now gearing up for the second season of her Bravo spin off show, however doesn’t want to return for more appearances as she is ready to phase the NYC Housewives completely out of her life. Bethenny reportedly feels “physically sick” just thinking about having to return to the show, something she feels is a “toxic environment.”

A friend of Bethenny tells Popeater, “In her heart she wishes she could just move on.” The friend adds, “To tell the truth, she doesn’t even want to watch the new season let alone be forced to be part of it.” Ouch.

For the four remaining people still watching Skating With The Stars, this story is for you.

Despite receiving some very low scores, Bravo reality star Bethenny Frankel will be skating on the show’s finale next week.  No elimination took place on the show last night as one of the “stars” Brandon Mychal Smith had to quit the show due to an illness, following his second week of not being able to dance.

Moving on to the finals alongside Bethenny are Rebecca Budig who scored 53 last night and Jonny Moseley who scored 54. In comparison, Bethenny who called herself  “the Bristol Palin of the competition” scored 38.

But while SWTS continues to be a dud overall, the best part of the show might have been the words of exchange between Bethenny and skating star Johnny Weir.

Following her performance last night, judge Johnny first paid Bethenny some compliments before adding, “But to me it’s very clear you don’t care what we think and I don’t really care to watch you actually perform anymore cause you weren’t listening to our critiques.”  Johnny then added, “”Well, I mean, if she doesn’t care, we don’t care.”  Ouch. Bethenny had no reply while her partner Ethan simply stated “we’ll just get our scores then.”

Some fans of the show feel Johnny’s harsh criticism of Bethenny might stem from his friendship with Bethenny’s former costar Jill Zarin.  “I’m friends with Jill,” Johnny told Popeater a few weeks ago. “I see Jill all the time and adore her.”

And when it comes to Jill’s skating (it was reported a while back that SWTS first asked Jill to do the show before asking Bethenny – something the show denied), Johnny feels Jill is in good skating shape.  “She was like, ‘you know Johnny I can’t skate until I’m in shape’ and I was like Jill, you’re like five pounds, you can skate whenever you want,” said Johnny.

In other Bethenny news, an announcement was made on Monday stating that Bethenny will be doing some kind of a tour.

“Join Bethenny Frankel, Best-selling author and star of “The Real Housewives of New York” and “Bethenny Getting Married?” for an evening of sass and fabulous fun. America’s favorite “skinnygirl” will dish on life, her work, and her passion for living healthy and living well. Throw on your best pumps for a hilarious and unpredictable evening with Bethenny Frankel!”

The ticket prices range between $29.50 to $75 for VIP passes.
