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.”
We give Bethenny Frankel a lot of crap for a multitude of things, but we give credit where credit is due = the woman is fearless and she doesn’t take herself too seriously.
Bethenny’snew talk show has been making a few headlines over it’s saucy topics – mostly sex – and she’s making no excuses for it. The former Housewife says she’s like Oprah, only dirtier. She tells In Touch magazine, “I’m the R-rated Oprah!”
Bethennysays she is just like every other woman out there and wants to keep the conversation real. “I’m talking about what my friends are talking about every day. We aren’t talking about politics — we’re talking about dating, marriage and what men think.”
She shares why she’s been focusing on sex as the topic of many of the first episodes of her show, which is finishing it’s third week on the air. “Someone says they don’t have enough of it, and someone else says it’s boring. But the bottom line is, I’m just like many of the married women in America who watch my show. Sometimes we just want to spice it up a little bit.”
Skinnygirl and Bethenny Ever After star Bethenny Frankel once again finds herself involved in a lawsuit over her multi (multi, multi!) million dollar baby. Although she sold her Skinnygirl Cocktail line to Jim Beam for a few bucks, Starcasm.com reports that she was recently deposed in a class action suit regarding the brand. The suit alleges that the drinks are made with rotgut tequila instead of the 100% blue agave tequila that the label boasts. Okay, sure.
