Bethenny's shrill scream was heard around the world, I'm sure. "Oh my god," she added. "Please kill me now. I just want to die. I really do."
On the tape, Bethenny talked baby talk to her dog, made fun of her driver, and talked up her career. "I've cooked for Mariska Hargitay, the Hiltons, Brooke Hogan, Alicia Silverstone, models," she shared. "Basically I'm a natural foods chef, and in Hollywood, health sells."
Bethenny declared the clip painful to watch, asking Andy, "That's why I made it on the show?" Andy said, despite his initial reservations about Bethenny's past experience with reality TV on Martha Stewart: The Apprentice, he thought she was really funny. And now we're stuck with her the rest is history.
Bethenny believed the show would catapult her out of the reality television genre and give her the opportunity to connect one-on-one with her fans. Unfortunately "fans" aren't tuning in. And she's being slaughtered in the ratings by Queen Latifah, who surprisingly turned out to be her biggest talk show rival.
"Bethenny is livid about Queen Latifah beating her – she can't believe this is happening," a source told Star Magazine (print edition). Indeed Bethenny's ratings have been slipping. Bethenny's show is averaging a .9 Nielsen rating while Queen Latifah is nabbing a healthy 1.4.
Well now, this is just really depressing. Bethenny Frankel's new strategy of being an open book on her talk show (we need ratings, people!) is making me sad. Not just any kind of blue, but My Best Friend's Wedding type down.
On a recent episode of bethenny, the former reality star revealed what pretty much everyone who ever watched Bethenny Ever After already knew. Jason Hoppy wasn't the love of Bethenny's wife, and she knew that full well before walking down the aisle at their wedding.
Our favorite reality TV stars can't get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite pictures from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
One show Bethenny has been avoiding is her former television home, Real Housewives of New York. But not for lack of trying! According to "sources" Bethenny reached out to former BFF-turned nemesis Jill Zarin to beg her to appear as a guest. She also approached reportedly broke former housewife Alex McCord and dangled a financial incentive in front of her nose.
So did the ladies take her up on it? Not. A. Chance! “The show called Alex’s publicist and told them about their grand plan, but said that all they could offer her was $400 — which is less than the SAG minimum,” a source informed Radar Online. Bethenny is a girl who loves a bargain!
