Bethenny Frankel is back! The straight-talking Bravolebrity returns to television with her eponymous new chat show on Monday, Sept. 9, and true to form, she's doling out unfiltered advice on everything from food and fitness to, of course, sex.
So what can fans expect when she unleashes her opinions in the first few episodes? Highlights that Bethenny has revealed so far include the moment she downs a kale cocktail (she declares it "the worst thing I ever tasted in my entire life!"), plus a heated debate over the quality of strip-club food. When a guest suggests the steak and shrimp are usually pretty good, the former Real Housewives of New York star is quick to quip, "You get the surf and the turf, if you get what I mean."
Bethenny—who at one point admits she's doing Kegel exercises while she's taping—also goes for laughs when she collapses atop some of her audience members after trying out the Kangoo Jumps bouncy exercise-shoe craze.
She even goes without makeup to share her personal tips for dealing with PMS: "You have to have hideous panties," Bethenny insists. "You shouldn’t be hooking up with anyone during that time because you feel disgusting."
With her difficult divorce from Jason Hoppy and custody battle over their daughter Bryn still going on, the former Bethenny Ever After star has been using her talk show to distract herself from the drama of her personal life. "We’re shooting two shows a day, three days a week," she told Life & Style this summer. "I’m really going hard-core."
Do you think Bethenny will make a good talk show host? Let us know in the comments.
