Bethenny Frankel Has Quit Reality TV
Bethenny Frankel has announced there will be no more Bethenny Ever After as she does not want her daughter to grow up onscreen.
Anyway Bethenny does not need to work as she sold her Skinnygirl Margarita for $120 million (that figure may be exaggerated) anyway it was for a lot of money.
Bethenny spotted the opportunity that reality TV can give you earlier then most as was very canny about making it work for her. She started her career on a Martha Stewart reality show where she came runner up. Bethenny was a cook with a healthy bent. Then she turned it into a catering business, including some low calorie muffins, which she did when she was on the Real Housewives of New York.
Her slightly neurotic but vulnerable persona made her popular with fans and she was given her own reality show, Bethenny’s Getting Married.
She then developed the Skinnygirl Margarita, a low calorie drink, whilst she was on the show and promoted it madly, and then a company brought the drink concept from her for squillion of dollars.
The drink range has Skinnygirl Cosmopolitan as well. They have just been released in Australia.
Now for the sake of reality TV research I have tried both drinks. The margarita is good, in fact, for a pre-mixed drink it is really good, however the cosmo had no flavour at all it was just a sweet mess. I had to add more alcohol to it to give it some taste at all.
Anyhow don’t rule out seeing Bethenny again on our screens as she may work with Bravo again in the future. (Source: Socialite Life)
