Jump To Bethenny Frankel's Stats
If you're going to go nude for the camera, you might as well do it in a big way and for a good cause - so says Bethenny Frankel. Her multi-story billboard exposure in New York's Times square seemed to fit the bill perfectly as PETA's campaign against wearing fur and Frankel's continuing dalliances in front of the lime light.
Frankel is a chiseled veteran when it comes to cameras. Her television work includes being a contestant on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart and as a stalwart on The Real Housewives of New York City. She eventually broke away for a feature reality show called Bethenny Getting Married? (which she did) and another called Bethenny Ever After.
Bethenny brings substantial culinary skills to her appearances. A graduate of The Natural Gourmet Culinary Institute of New York, she has applied those lessons to dovetail into other enterprises beside a sly smile on her pretty frame. She started a company called BethennyBakes. In 2009, she founded another company called Skinny Girl Cocktails. Since then, she developed an entire brand behind the Skinny Girl moniker including books and videos and sold it for a substantial windfall to a large conglomerate.
Frankel currently has been developing a talk show in concert with the Ellen DeGeneres production company. Its scheduled launch has been planned for mid 2012. Whether or not the show develops into a long running platform has been questioned though.
Apparently Bethenny has a reputation for being a bit, um, prickly. Some of her former fans have begun to question her veracity and some of the truths of her early history. Rumors have begun to peculate that her recent marriage to John Hobby maybe closer to Jello than Granite.
