I must admit that I was shocked when Bethenny Frankel announced that she was leaving Real Housewives of New York. I wasn’t the only one. According to co-star Ramona Singer, the RHONY cast learned the news from the press.
Then it was Bethenny’s turn to be surprised when Season 12 of Real Housewives of New York aired. The beginning of the episode featured all the New York Housewives reacting to Bethenny leaving the franchise. Ramona and Luann de Lesseps were thrilled because they would get more camera time.
Now Bethenny is focused on her next television project. She announced on Instagram that her new show is casting. “I have hesitated to post about this application process given this terrible crisis our nation is facing. Yet, I came to the realization that we will, at some point soon, need to return to a new normal, rebuild our lives, and to restore our faith in our society,” Bethenny said.
So, what is the show about? Bethenny stated, “THE BIG SHOT WITH BETHENNY (working title) is a show with an authentic genuine look into what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur through a non- traditional approach. With branding, marketing, sales, and creative projects, applicants will be working in a real-life business community learning what it takes to make it in our cutthroat world.”

How Bethenny will work with the contestants sounds really interesting (and really stressful.) “I will let people into the inner workings of my life, my business, and my philanthropy to show how to be successful and execute a vision, even when the odds are against me,” the Skinnygirl mogul wrote. “The participants and the audience will see how decisions get made and failures and successes happen every day.”
Bethenny is clearly ready for this new chapter. “I am looking to and for the future…I want to pay it forward and give someone the opportunity to carve their own path to success by truly taking them under my wing,” Bethenny explained. “I also want the audience to see how they can come from ‘A Place of Yes’ and make their business dreams come true once we enter the “new normal” in the coming months.”
