Bethenny Frankel brought her distinctive voice and candid point of view to daytime television this past summer on select FOX-owned and operated stations, including New York and Los Angeles. Bethenny," the show, embodies Bethenny the woman; it is real, honest, informative and most of all, entertaining. Her show covers all the areas that women care about; love and relationships, beauty and fitness, celebrity and pop culture. Bethenny, "the queen of too much information," is the honest, un-filtered girlfriend who tells it like it is. As a chef to best-selling author and reality TV star to self-made businesswoman and new mom, Frankel's wit, wisdom and humor first came to national attention when she was named first runner-up on NBC's "The Apprentice: Martha Stewart." Network executives saw a personality they couldn't ignore, and how she connected with audiences, so they put her center stage on Bravo's hit series "The Real Housewives of New York" for three seasons. She emerged as the star of the series, with a huge network of fans, which led Bravo to create a spin-off series, "Bethenny Getting Married?" that premiered with the highest ratings ever in Bravo history and continued with "Bethenny Ever After..." now in its third season. Recently, Frankel has checked novelist off her list with the release of her first novel, Skinnydipping, an instant New York Times Best-Seller, which chronicles the story of Faith Brightstone, an entrepreneur-turned-reality-TV-star who must choose between fame and love. Her first book Naturally Thin: Unleash Your Skinnygirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting debuted on The New York Times Best-Sellers list and remained on the list for an impressive 18 consecutive weeks. Frankel's second book, The Skinnygirl Dish: EasyRecipes for Your Naturally Thin Life was released just in time to support "new year, new you" resolutions with delicious, practical, effective recipes and lifestyle tweaks. The Skinnygirl Dish showcases Frankel's renowned "fix-ology," her ability to take calorie-rich foods and revamp them to create healthier versions without compromising flavor. In A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out Of Life, Frankel put her personal experiences into a framework of rules, to encourage readers to take action when "good enough" really isn't good enough. A Place of Yes spent 13 weeks on The New York Times Best-Sellers list. Her skill as a fixologist applies to cocktails, too. She launched the Skinnygirl Margarita and in March 2011, Skinnygirl Cocktails was acquired by the largest U.S.-based premium spirits company, Beam Inc. (NYSE:BEAM), where Bethenny continues to serve as the committed brand collaborator, developer and marketer. Skinnygirl Cocktails is currently one of the fastest growing spirits brands in the U.S. As the go-to expert for all things reality and lifestyle, Frankel wields her pen (and blackberry) like a sword, ensuring that her fans will get the unvarnished truth along with common sense, expertise and a healthy - always healthy - dose of humor. She is on a mission to democratize healthy living, making information available to everyone she can reach through her appearances, books, columns and blogs ... and now her daytime talk show."
