Bethenny Frankel knows how to hustle. There’s no doubt about that. She’s also been afforded plenty of opportunities to demonstrate that hustle across a host of platforms – reality television specifically. She got her start on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart in 2005, and came in second place. While she has admitted in interviews that she thinks Martha Stewart was not a fan of hers, she definitely impressed producer Mark Burnett. Shortly thereafter, Bethenny was cast on a little show we know called Real Housewives of New York City, and well the rest is history!
In her time on RHONY, Bethenny went from single, to married, to divorced mom, and author, all while building an immensely successful brand. She was able to make her ideas a reality, leverage her name and status from the series and build SkinnyGirl into a brand. The brand was executed so well that she sold the company to Fortune Brands Beam Global in 2011 for an estimated 120 million dollars. Her story is part of why fans admire her and she definitely has bragging rights.
Southern Charm star Craig Conover has often been considered to be the ne’er-do-well of the show. His co-stars have frequently admonished him for his inability to finish what he starts. Co-stars Shep Rose and Whitney Sudler-Smith criticized him for not taking the bar exam in a timely manner. And matriarch Patricia Altschul told Craig they would have to put their pillow collaboration on hold when he failed to deliver designs to her in a timely manner.
Lately, however, it seems Craig has finally gained focus. This season, we have watched Craig take his pillow business more seriously. He even hired an assistant to help with his business venture. Craig also announced earlier this year that he was starting to sell merchandise online. And now, Craig is selling his pillows in an actual store.
VH1 is bringing back a lot of your favorite reality shows for even more seasons of craziness. Not only that, but Ricky Martin is set to have his own show as well. There are no specifics on the premise, but Ricky is in good company with the other famous people who took their lives to reality TV on the network.
Hopefully there will be more info about Ricky’s new show at some point soon.

Most of the time when people who are already well known as celebrities try to star in a reality series or talk show, it does not work out. I’m not really sure why since these are people who already have a following, but it might be because the public is just used to seeing celebs doing what originally made them famous. Nevertheless, I’m pretty optimistic about Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg coming together for their own reality show.

Well, well – Martha Stewart is giving no f–ks for Christmas. The domestic diva recently got into a tiff with Luann de Lesseps. Maybe Bethenny Frankel is right – Martha should join Real Housewives Of New York.
Martha and Luann were socializing at a party thrown by Qatari Ambassador to the US Mohammed Jaham Al Kuwari, who was engaged in a lovely chat with Luann, and even invited the ex-Countess to visit his country. Next season’s cast trip?
