In a recent interview, she attributes her success, in part, to the sage advice of wildly popular talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. Some might recall that Bethenny visited Ellen on her talk show back in the day when Bethenny Ever After was filming and then helped Bethenny get her own talk show off the ground. At the time, Bethenny’s own (now failed) talk show was poised to go live, and the advice Ellen gave her then was, as I recall, to “just be herself.” Unfortunately, this advice didn’t work out so well for Bethenny in the end.
Our favorite reality TV stars, like Shannon Beador, Tamera Mowry, and Kyle Richards, love to show off their adorable kids and family photos on social media. It’s so tough to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the sweetest photos from the past few weeks.
Last month Apollo Nida began an 8 year prison stint and Phaedra Parks is finally breaking her silence in an exclusive sit-down with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. Phaedra will reveal all about how her world came crumbling down!
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star says that she was in the dark about Apollo’s life of crime due to her busy schedule. “I really didn’t [have any idea]… ” Phaedra sighed. “I work, I just got my fifth college degree. I’m pretty much an overachiever. I have two very small children,” Phaedra tells Ellen in an interview to air today.
“So, I didn’t have any idea this was going on until he called me and he said ‘I’ve been arrested and I’m having this problem, but it’s not true,'” Phaedra says.

Bethenny Frankel is upping the ante as far as guests on her talk show goes. She's graduated from her recent parade of Bravolebrities to the one woman who we have to thank for putting her on the air–Ellen DeGeneres. "Thank" may not be the word you would use, but as far as I'm concerned, Ellen can do no wrong. And who knows, maybe this is just another lesson in random acts of kindness courtesy of Ellen.
When Ellen appeared via satellite (is that what they still call it?) on bethenny yesterday, Bethenny introduced her by saying, "I am so excited and honored to tell you who my first guest is today. It's a woman who I trust, who I admire, who I love, who I respect. She's the most talented women on the planet in my book and she's the reason that I have a show today. I am so grateful to her, for this opportunity. Please welcome my friend and mentor Ellen DeGeneres."
My friends and I like to play a game we call Lifetime Movie. No, we're not planning on rocking back and forth in a shower crying about a relationship gone sour; instead, we try to figure out which star would play us in a movie about our life. It's fun, and I recommend it to anyone who's bored!
In the movie of my life, I'd hope that Ellen DeGeneres could take time out of her busy schedule to play me, but I'd understand if she had other obligations. However, I'm happy to learn that my friends and I aren't the only ones who like to think of our lives as a watch-worthy show. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville also likes to imagine her life played out on the screen.
Just because Anderson Cooper's daytime talk show is ending doesn't mean that the show's executive producer will be out of a job. That's good news, right? Really though, the million dollar question is: who would you rather work for–Anderson or Bethenny Frankel? Hmmm. Tough call!
As the old saying goes, when one door closes, another door opens, and such is the case for Anderson Live producer Terrance Noonan. As Anderson's two season stint draws to a close, the Bethenny Ever After star is poised to take his fans…and his producer! At least Telepictures is keeping it in the production family, so to speak!
Did any of you check out the Neenster withEllen DeGeneresyesterday? Girlfriend is all over the place these days! That's right, the one-lining, sitcom/reality star/"Close your legs to married men, WIG!"NeNe Leakeswas on Ellen to talk about her shows The New Normal and Real Housewives of Atlanta…and of course her recent engagement to ex-husband Gregg Leakes.
While she was there, the former stripper got a little taste of her own medicine as an engagement present from Ellen. Wow, NeNe has certainly be surrounded by the exotic dancers this week, hasn't she? Wasn't she just hosting the opening of West Hollywood's Cake Factory Strip Club?
Stop the presses and pour me a Skinnygirl margarita! On second thought, don't…I prefer my cocktails to taste good and go straight to my hips.
I have some wonderful news that will excite the masses. Whether you're a diehard Bethenneedy fan, a Bethennybody-else-but-her hater, or a passive and neutral Frankel, my dear, I don't give a damn, you are going to like what I have to say! Well, that third group probably couldn't care less, but the others–oh, the others!–will be thrilled! P.S. I'm working on a trademark for my newly coined phrases, so use at your own risk. TM, Ms. Frankel, TM! 😉
Anyhoo, can you guess who this post is about? Anyone? Real Housewives of New York veteran and purveyor of Hoppylicious spin-offs and diet liquor concoctions Bethenny Frankel made an announcement earlier Monday on her website. The post was aptly titled "My Big Announcement." You have to give her credit, Bethenny always has been a straight shooter!
