It’s not at all surprising that Bethenny Frankel won’t be rejoining the cast of The Real Housewives of New York City this season. With the premiere of her own spin-off, Bethenny Getting Married? directly following the Housewives season 3′s finale last June, the proverbial writing’s practically painted the walls a new shade.
But don’t think that a departure from the ensemble of catty women that popularized Frankel in homes across the country indicates a halt to her Bravo tenure. After watching the natural foods chef finalize book edits and plan a wedding while pregnant on Bethenny Getting Married?, the show returns for its second spin this month – albeit with a different title.
Premiering February 28th, Bethenny Ever After picks up largely where its predecessor left off:
“It’s about the texture of marriage and bringing together Venus and Mars, which is what my husband and I are,” Frankel notes. “We’re from two different planets.”
And since the planet Frankel seems to orbit more often than not is professional success, the show is likely to showcase the challenges inherent to juggling a newly found motherhood with a seemingly insatiable drive. This isn’t to suggest that The Apprentice: Martha Stewart runner-up turned Bravo darling has any complaints – or intentions of “slowing down” for that matter:
“I would like a daytime talk show because my conversation with my fans right now is through social networking, and my TV show [Bethenny Ever After] communicates what I’m doing, but it isn’t really a dialogue or a conversation,” she explains.
With the plethora of failed daytime talk shows under our pop-savvy belts, the verdict’s still out on whether or not this an idea worth pursuing – though there’s little doubt that the tenacious spitfire would have any trouble actually landing the gig: “Most of my business wishes come true,” she observes.
