That answer is a very strong maybe! The Bethenny Ever Afterstar was photographed above this week on Tuesday as she went for a stroll with daughter Bryn and husband Jason Hoppy in NYC.
It is however the appearance of what looks to be a baby bump that is catching the eyes of some, including us. The very skinny Bethenny, 40, appears to have some extra curves around the tummy area.
If she is pregnant, this would not come as a surprise as she has been very vocal about her desire to have a second baby. Earlier this year, she revealed that if she were to have a second child, it would be sooner than later due to her age. “I would love to have a second child, and it’s not something I have time to wait for,” she told Redbook magazine in their January issue. “You really experience your biological clock if you’re my age.”
“We throw caution to the wind and use the withdrawal method now,” added Bethenny. “If we got pregnant again, we’d be happy.”
So is she or isn’t she? Only time will tell. In the mean time, we’ll let you be the judge with more photos below of Bethenny with Bryn and Jason!

As for what to expect on the show this season, Bethenny will be dealing with marriage, motherhood, career, in laws, religion and turning 40.
Meanwhile, Bethenny has spent the last couple of weeks doing the press rounds to promote her show but it’s her most recent comments via a conference call with reporters that is now raising a few eyebrows. Could this season of BEA mark the end of her run on reality television? We’ll let you be the judge.
“Will I be doing this forever? No,” said Bethenny of her reality-show career. “Without getting into the details of my relationship with Bravo, I have a commitment. It’s not like you get to be, like, ‘I want to do one season, and then, you know, you’ve spent all this money on advertising and crew and all of that and we’re done.’ And there are many things I do love about it. I think it’s a great message for women. I have developed a strong relationship with my fans.”
Bethenny also promises an honest look into her life. “If Jason and I in general have had the same argument six times over about marriage or money or life or in-laws or something, at some point, I want to let the cameras catch that because I just hate when you watch these shows and, you know, someone’s, like, broken up with their boyfriend and you see them laying there in full makeup pretending that they’re sad,” she said. “I just want it to be real and if we’re going to do this at all and we’re going to portray our relationship, I want people to get the whole picture.” Take that Kim Kardashian!
Bethenny Ever After debuts tonight on Bravo at 10/9c. A preview clip is below.
And finally, Bethenny, 40, and hubby Jason Hoppy, 39, hit a Miami Beach in Florida over the weekend and beach photos of the couple are also below!

Another milestone for Bravo’s biggest Housewives’ success story as Bethenny Frankel graces the January cover of Redbook magazine. Who shot the cover you asked? None other than Gilles Bensimon, ex-husband of Bethenny’s former costar Kelly Bensimon.
UsWeekly published excerpts from Bethenny’s interview with the mag, in which she admits her past bad habits. “I used to get drunk and binge on everything in the deli, and then do a juice fast or starve, then do it all over again,” the 40-year-old Bethenny Getting Married star shares.
And when it comes to staying in shape during and after her pregnancy with 6-month old daughter Bryn Hoppy, Bethenny reveals she was determined to not overeat “out of emotion.” She explains, “Most people treat pregnancy like the big binge, and then they can’t take the excess weight off so they go on a crash diet.”
So is baby #2 in the works for Bethenny? “I would love to have a second child, and it’s not something I have time to wait for,” she says. “You really experience your biological clock if you’re my age.”
With the second season of her Bravo spin-off show (now titled Bethenny Ever After) in the works, Bethenny is glad her Real Housewives of NYC days are long behind her.
“I’m completely done with women being rewarded for bad behavior,” she says of her former castmates. “I don’t bite the hand that feeds me, and I’m very grateful to Bravo, but thank God I got out of that alive. It was fun the first season. Then it got not fun, and then it got scary and unhealthy and disgusting.”
In other Bethenny news, her mom Bernadette Birkis once again slamming her in the press. In a new interview with the HollywoodLife, Bernadette accuses Bethenny of purposely doing badly on Skating With The Stars. “Bethenny has always had an agenda,” Bernadette says adding that Bethenny has been skating almost all of her life. “She couldn’t be that clumsy if she tried! And this is a person that lived on skates as a child.”
Bethenny is one of the three reality stars gracing January’s cover of Redbook ((on newsstands December 21). The other two reality stars are Top Chef’s Padma Lakshmi and Biggest Loser’s Alison Sweeney. More photos of Bethenny in the mag below, including a photo with baby Bryn.

In a new interview with the Wall Street Journal, Bravo reality star Bethenny Frankel openly admits that having a baby and getting married to Jason Hoppy has been good for her brands, which now includes two Bravo reality shows, a Skinnygirl Margarita mix, endorsement deals with Bluefly and British Airways, and several best-selling books.
“I’m not stupid,” Bethenny says. “This is about the husband and the baby.” According to the WSJ article, Bethenny can also add an endorsement for Pampers to her long list of endorsements as Procter & Gamble came calling following the birth of now 6-month old baby Bryn Hoppy.
Bethenny is even gearing up to add more to her brands as she is also working on some skin care products and a shapewear line. “It’s about allowing people into my fishbowl in order to be successful,” says Bethenny of her success on and off the TV screen.
“Our clients are very taken with her right now. Bethenny has entered into the mommy world and she hasn’t posed for Playboy,” says Amia French, a talent coordinator for Platinum Rye Entertainment, which helps corporations pair with celebrities. “Motherhood has only increased her value with us,” adds Geri Allen, a spokeswoman for Campbell Soup Co.’s Pepperidge Farm unit, which also has a promotional agreement with Bethenny.
Bethenny has without a doubt come a long way since her days on Martha Stewart’s The Apprentice back in 2005. She finished runner-up by the way. Since then, she has appeared on 3 seasons of Bravo’s the Real Housewives of New York City before ultimately getting her own spin-off show Bethenny Getting Married following the announcement of her engagement and pregnancy.
The WSJ article also mentions that season 2 of BGM will be returning in February. The new title? “Bethenny Ever After.”
Despite her success and growing number of business endeavors, Bethenny makes it clear there’s still something she would like to have. Her own talk show that is. “I want to have a dialogue with my fans, and right now the only dialogue I can have is in 140-characters,” she says, referring to her Twitter feed.
While everything Bethenny touches seems to turn to gold, her decision to appear on ABC’s Skating With The Stars might turn out to be her biggest failure yet. The ratings for the show came out yesterday and it can only be described as disastrous. Despite having a lead-in from the most popular show on TV at the moment, Skating With The Stars only managed 11.3 million viewers. A drastic drop from the 23.3 million viewers that tuned in for Dancing With The Starsjust moments before.
It gets even worse as only 6.91 million viewers tuned in for the last hour of the show’s premiere. There are now rumblings that ABC is currently in panic mode.

“Last season was scary and painful,” she tells the magazine about the reason she rejected Bravo’s offers to return for season 4, which is scheduled to begin filming on Sept. 20. “It took all of the joy out of it.”
This decision by Bethenny doesn’t exactly come as a shocker as she has another hit show on Bravo,Bethenny Getting Married, a show that doesn’t require her to try to decode the incoherent ramblings of NYC co-star Kelly Bensimon.
Bethenny, who welcomed daughter Bryn Hoppy in May with husband Jason Hoppy tells UsWeekly she doesn’t “see any reason to go back.”
Despite Bethenny quitting the show, viewers can still expect to see her when the 4th season of the NYC Housewives returns. Why? Well a Bravo insider tells UsWeekly that Bethenny is still contractually bound to make a few appearances on RHONY next season, though Bravo is still hoping that she’ll return full-time.
Could money have played a part in Bethenny’s decision? Hollyscoop reported just last week that Bethenny was in negotiations to return to the show. Either way, I can’t say I blame Bethenny. I’m not certain Bravo could pay me enough money to go on vacation with the nutty Kelly and mean girl Jill. I think this will definitely impact the show though. Bethenny not appearing on RHONY would be equivalent to Nene Leakes leaving the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Bethenny however makes it clear just how much she adores her baby girl Bryn Hoppy, who is now a healthier 9 1/2 pounds at three and a half months old.
“Bryn’s a big pink baby now,” said Bethenny to Parade while hosting a press conference for drugstore.com. “Bryn likes pink — it’s her new favorite color. She is really growing up, and it is making me upset.”
And when it comes to her favorite pastime with baby Bryn, Bethenny shares, “We sing for an hour every day. I sing to her, and Bryn sings back. We sing Rihanna, Pink, gangsta rap.”
In other Bethenny news, the NYDailyNews is reporting today that during the Drugstore event, Bethenny took a swipe at her fellow Bravo housewife Danielle Staub.
Danielle, who has been fired from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, has told the press she is working on a solo reality show. It seems however that Bethenny, the only Bravo housewife to get her own solo spin off show on the network, is not willing to share that title, well at least not with Danielle.
“I’ll bet everything I hope to be that she will not have a spinoff on Bravo,” is what Bethenny is quoted as saying. Ouch.
It seems before becoming a popular and successful reality star, Bethenny Frankeltried her hand at becoming famous way back in the 90s. Celebslam has uncovered Bethenny’s brief stint in acting, as she was the lead actress in a low budget 1994 movie, titled Hollywood Hills 90028.
Hollywood Hills 90028 stars Bethenny Frankel as Laura, who moves to Hollywood Hills, CA, as the movie begins. She has no personal ties to anyone, but soon becomes obsessed with the nerdy Mike (David Kenneth). Mike is so thankful to have the interest of such an alluring woman that he never notices how intense her passion is — even when bad things start happening to people Mike knows.
Bethenny’s IMDB page also shows she starred in another low budget movie titled ‘Wish Me Luck‘ in 1995. The shocking part however is that the Bethenny Getting Married star went topless in the movie role. Censored pictures of a topless Bethenny in the movie are below.
In other news, Bethenny is making headlines after slamming supermodel Gisele Bundchen for the comments she made about breast feeding.
It all started a few weeks ago when the supermodel mom, 30, opined to Harper’s Bazaar UK mag that “there should be a worldwide law…that mothers should breast-feed their babies for six months.” Gisele received a lot of negative feedback from mothers and she eventually backed down, blogging on August 2, “Everyone has their own experience…I’m not here to judge.”
“It’s the most absurd thing I’ve ever heard,” retorts Bethenny of Gisele in the new Us Weekly. Adding that “breastfeeding is one of the most rewarding experiences, but it isn’t for everyone.”
When Jill is not busy inviting camera crews to go shopping with she and her daughter Allyson, she’s busy giving out interviews in an attempt to promote um ummm, oh who cares! She has herself to promote!
In her latest interview with RadarOnline, Jill shares that she has yet to meet cast-mate Bethenny Frankel’sbaby. “I’m not involved with her life anymore. I haven’t met the baby.” Jill also states she has yet to reconcile with Bethenny saying she called her after the reunion show taping. “I called and she didn’t call back. I do have a baby gift waiting for her when I do see her.”
And when it comes to her actions on the Bravo hit show, Jill is still distressed that people got to see her true colors. “Why did [the storyline with Bethenny] last nine episodes or whatever? It was only two or three weeks in real time when I was mad at Bethenny and then I wanted to make up and that was sort of extended for six months or something.”
When asked if she will be back for another season, Jill pretends says she has a lot of mixed feelings. “On the one hand I think it’s a great platform for my brand but also for my charities. But on the other hand, it really put my family through the ringer. Put me through the ringer.”
After a long and tough labor, Bethenny and Jason are joined at the hospital by Jason’s parents to welcome baby Bryn into the world. Like most new parents, when it’s finally time to take Bryn home the two have no idea what is in store for them; they can’t even get the baby out of the car seat without the baby nurse’s help!
Sleepless nights and new motherhood turn Bethenny’s world upside, but with her patient husband and loving in-law’s, it’s nothing she can’t handle. How will Bethenny and Jason survive the first couple of weeks as clueless and exhausted parents? And will they ever master getting Bryn out of her car seat? Find out this at 10/9c on Bravo.
In other Bethenny news, though she has made her mark by doing reality shows, it seems Bethenny is very against her daughter ever following in her footsteps. She calls the idea “traumatizing.”
When asked by PEOPLE what she would do if Bryn grows up and tells her she wants to be on a reality show? “I will kill somebody,” answered Bethenny jokingly. “Not her, but I will kill somebody.”
Bethenny then went on to add that it might depend on the kind of show it is. If it’s a show like BGM which she describes as allowing you to be “really, totally honest and be yourself.”
She however dismissed the idea all together hoping “by the time she grows up, there won’t be even be reality shows.” But isn’t Bryn kinda sorta already a reality star, you know, considering she is about to become a regular cast member on Bethenny’s Getting Married?
Below is a preview clip of tonight’s episode.
