Bethenny Frankel's Talk Show Has Been Canceled

Bethenny Frankel is going to have to find a new way to try and make money and to stay famous. That is what she really wants. The show will stay on the air until May and will probably end up featuring guests that no one else wants. It actually stayed on the air a little longer than I thought it would but she was doomed because she just couldn't get the name guests and wasn't liked by her staff or her bosses. Oh, or the vast majority of the viewing public which is kind of a necessity if you want people to choose your show among all the alternatives.

That woman is awful. I dont like to bad mouth people for the most part, but trust me on this one!

I don't know how she got a show in the first place.

sandybrook said...

She still has skinny girl to fall back on. She just wont be seen much in public or on Tv.

It's tough to be a talk show host. My mom tried and it just all went to hell, even with Kay stopping by with N.
It's not an easy gig.

I recognize Ellen.

Mari (from her other mail acct.) said...

The two girls I know who really liked her, back on HWNYC and then on her shows progressively liked her less with each TV show. By the time the talk show came about they had moved to active dislike, so I have to blame Bethenny herself. If you have a popular image, for goodness sake maintain the fake image.

Seven of Eleven said...

I loved that clip from when Kanye visited Kris's show and he was hugging her and smiling. He looked like he was holding a large fart. Kris was giggling and teary-eyed with adoration.

TalksTooMuch said...

She is still the housewife that has done the best from those shows; got a spunky personality. And an adorable little girl

dishy said...

she's a cunt

Every morning I go by where they film her show, and the line has been getting shorter and shorter everytime.

AKM said...

I watched once or twice, but she was just so smug and unlikable that I couldn't continue. Funny, I liked some of her SkinnyGirl products, I enjoyed most of her books (mostly for the recipes; her own "way of eating" sounds slightly disordered to me), and I even liked her way back when on RHONY, but her story has just become tiresome (said à la Dieter from Sprockets). It's what Mari said...she's just gradually become insufferable.

Nina Roux said...

I like her. She's an opinionated, strong self made woman and people love to hate those. Yes she has a big personality/mouth but I appreciate those things in a woman. She's a risk taker and a good role model for business women. I get if she's not your cup of tea, but I seriously don't understand the HATE. Why wish her ill?

SueRH said...

Boooooooooooo! I like the show and I like Bethenny.

Lord Disick said...

My visit to Kris' show was probably the best one. Everyone learned a lot about LD that day including myself.

Susan said...

I don't understand how so many people get a chance at a talk show. It seems like it is so hard to do a successful one. Does Bethenny have any appeal at all?

I think Rachael Ray and Wendy Williams are two stellar talk show hosts. I don't always love them or agree with them, but they have the personality and the charisma to pull it off. It seems like such a hard job. And when Wendy Williams' wig travels around the world, I die. This Bethenny broad is like bitchy burnt stale toast.

Anna Belle said...

Sad thing is of the Housewives she was the one I liked the most-outside of that element you saw what a b*tch she is

JoElla said...

The only time I watched this, was when I forgot to change the channel after General Hospital.

It was a harmless show, not that great, not that bad.. just there.

The only thing worse could be the crap my local ABC replaces it with.

What do you mean, Ellen isn't a big enough name?? GOOD RIDDANCE. Listening to that Noo Yawk accent is enough to drive you to drink. *shudder*

Bruce Jenner said...

Hi Scott!

Sasha said...

I swear I recently read it was picked up for one more year?!? I watch occasionally and I think she has gotten better. She doesn't talk over her guests as much and listens more.

Tom said...

Next on Bravo: Bethenny Getting Cancelled.

rajahcat said...

she had a show?????

haha just kidding

Danica said...

Finally! I flipped by one day and saw a big cake celebrating her 100th episode and I thought for sure we were doomed to have her on our tv's even longer.

Paint Chips said...

Finally.

Hey, 888, let your hubby know there's a sale on Miller Light at the local 7-11! Cut the guy some slack on V-Day, living with a Klanswoman can't be easy.

JELUS H8R H8N HARD said...

Thanks Seven but you think he didn't know I was a racist anti-Semite when he married me? There are a lot more of us out there than you think :D

Seven of Eleven said...

I know, Pennsatucky, I know.

Susan
Talk shows are outrageously cheap to produce, even cheaper than other reality shows. It is relatively easy to get a shot at one. Then they need a relatively small but niche audience to justify continuing, ad dollars-wise. The daytime housewife audience is hugely influential in household spend. Blah blah blah, magic: that's how you get so many talk shows.It also accounts for Man Vs Food.

bellaluna said...

Thank all the gods for small favors!

Susan said...

Alita - thanks for your explanation. Figured it was about the almighty dollar.

audrey said...

She talks too fast. It is hard to listen to something like that for too long.

Susannah Leigh Murray said...

Her show is actually pretty good though. Especially if you enjoy reality tv stars as guests ... Which I do

*looks around with a look of guilt*

Stepforded said...

Oh bugger!

I don't like her, but what I did like (and for those who've heard me say this before, skip over) - was the little segments she had at the end of most show.

One time, she had this clever eyebrow technician who taught everyone how to shape their eyebrows properly; another time, she had a very talented make-up artist on who showed some fresh techniques for 2014; and then there was the time there was a lady on who showed how to cram more into your suitcase through clever packing.

I agree she spoke too fast ... she also lacked the natural charm that most good talk show hosts have - in her defence, she was probablyfoc using on listening to the producer talking in her ear, which can be really hard to do at the same time as looking interested in what your guests are saying, but still ...

Stepforded said...

*probably focusing

Alita said...

Pleasure, Susan - happy to share my meagre knowledge ;)

I think it's interesting to remember that any tv show (excepting those on non commercial networks) have one single motivation, which is to make revenue by being able to sell the ad space. That's it - doesn't matter what the network, producer, often even the writer says, it's about making a good show that gets popular so they can sell more ad space at higher rates.

Money money money ... :)

Don't knock Man v. Food. Adam is my hero!

Alita said...

Lol @ Cee Kay - it's important to have role models ;)

CDAN Reader said...

The audience on Bethenney's show never looked happy like they do on others

PotPourri said...

She's beautiful, but repulsive when she opens her mouth! she thinks she's such a star.

Henriette said...

I'm surprised it lasted this long.
