Bethenny Frankel continues to expand her empire!  The Real Housewives of New York star has conquered cooking, reality TV, book writing, cocktailing and dieting and now she’s going to tackle producing!  Bethenny announced this week that she has launched a new production company, B Real Productions, and is already hard at work making deals. 

She’s already working with Leftfield entertainment on unscripted series Closet Porn and Cocktail Porn in addition to Food Porn which premieres tonight.

Bethenny shared in a statement, “I’m excited to be launching B Real Productions and producing creative and innovative content with Brent, Adam and the rest of the Leftfield team.  In addition to my time in front of the camera, I am enjoying being behind-the-scenes developing bold, disruptive and real programming.”

Leftfield said of the Skinnygirl mogul, “Bethenny’s super-human drive, innate sense of what can gain traction in the marketplace and in the media, and her amazing entrepreneurial spirit make her a true complement and fit for Leftfield. She’s a total original and we’re eager to join forces to launch into Bethenny’s ‘porn’-oriented food, fashion and lifestyle worlds, and beyond.”

Viewers will follow Michael as he travels across the US to meet today’s tastemakers – the everyday people behind the delicious online posts – and discover what made the meal so distinctive and worthy to share online. The series will also go beyond just the photo, as Michael will meet with the chefs and restaurants responsible for creating the dishes to find out what’s in them and why they are insanely popular.
