‘Bethenny’ Cancelled


Another talk show bites the dust. Bethenny Frankel’s self-titled talk show is getting the axe. 

Telepictures made the decision to cancel the Bethenny Ever After star’s chatfest before it reached its second season. Frankel said in a released statement,

My entire staff worked so hard and made everyday so much fun. I am thankful for the experience and for all my fans who tuned in every day.”


Telepictures stated,

We are incredibly proud of the creativity, passion and professionalism Bethenny and her staff brought to daytime each and every day and look forward to finishing out the season with more great original episodes. While we are disappointed not to be able to bring the series back for a second season, we remain convinced that Bethenny has a unique voice and that she will continue to be successful in the future

    From what I saw, I didn’t like it. And her rudeness bothered me at times. Telling a member of the audience to “sit your ass down” is unacceptable. I won’t miss this show. But I don’t wish unemployment on anyone regardless of how I feel about them. So I hope things work out for her.

    Good riddance. Tiffany Frankel and Kris Kadingdong no longer have talk shows. Now if CBS would cancel those five yentas on THE TALK and NBC get rid of the ‘Candy Ass Gifford and Eileen Hoda’ hour of the TODAY SHOW. Daytime TV should be restored to its former glory when soaps and game shows ruled.

    I am now lost on the definition of housewife. I thought housewives are suppose to be married and stays home and takes care of her children. What is Bravo’s definition of a housewife????????? Anyone????

    Yet another disposable talk show is cancelled. Boo hoo. I never cared for this lady anyway (or any of those housewives) and there’s no way I can watch anything she or any of them do.

    Most talk shows these days are disposable. I miss the days when they had real talk show hosts like Oprah, Donahue, hell even Sally Jesse Raphael!

    @missmuffett41….Totally agree. I have always wondered why these women are “housewives”. Most aren’t stay at home, some aren’t married.

    @rabbit on the moon….don’t feel bad for Bethenny being unemployed. She could never work another day in her life and be quite fine. She has made millions off her talk show, Bravo show and most from her dreadful Skinny Girl food line.

    She was to be the white version of Wendy Williams. It was obvious when she had Amorosa appear on her show. They did the same thing in season one of The Wendy Williams Show. I love WW but there are days when her show is terribly boring.

    The show may have worked if they attracted Katie Couric watchers. If they had revamped and made the show more of an advice, cooking, crealty tv celebrity seat downs it may have worked. I am sick of the same TV producer’s creating similar talk shows on all the channels.

    I will be thrilled when The Real returns. It is a bit hood but it relates to a younger fun female demographic.

    Bethany was not given the chance to form her own identity.

    Better a talk show than another soap. To the person above who mentioned Wendy Williams:
    I used to like Wendy. But then she became a judge mental hypocrite. When Wendy called Madonna “Old”, all I could do was laugh, Wendy is 50 yo herself.

    [quote=Yoryla]Sally Jessy Raphael was GOOD! I liked that show.

    Also I really liked Ricki Lake the first time around.[/quote]

    Sally has a show coming on Logo you may love.

    I know Omarosa is somewhere drinking a mint julep laughing her head off. She told that woman her show wouldn’t last a year. The only reason Wendy Williams has lasted is because of her hot topics. When Wendy first came out, she was so funny and likable. Now she barely talks about folks like she use to and she is getting to high and mighty. First couple of seasons, she kissed Kim K behind and had the girls on her show and she use to hate on Paris. Now she kisses Paris behind and hates on Kim K. I liked Wendy better when she had the gum wall in the back, the fly problems and her wig head Shakeitha.

    To me, Ellen DeGeneres is usually synonymous with class, so I was surprised when she produced this classless show. Hopefully, now that it’s cancelled, Bethenny will fade from memory and we can forget Ellen’s momentary lapse in judgment.

    Omarosa was also a fool.

    Bethenny made 55 million dollars last year according to Forbes.

    I don’t like Bethenny at all. But that other one is a complete idiot.

    I’m sure she clutched herself when she read that.

    I used to see that brand a lot at my former retail job. I never knew it was hers though.

    [quote=missmuffett41]Gawd!!! I thought the Tyra Banks show was bad. But Bethenny took awfulness and stupidity to a whole new level.[/quote]

    Tyra had her moments. But for the most part, she came off as pretentious because her show covered groundbreaking topics (which Oprah already did a decade earlier). On top of that, Tyra is a hypocrite. She would bring female porn stars/webcam models on her show just so she and her audience can look down on these women because of their career paths and treat them like victims who are being objectified. But in a later episode, she interviews a male escort with the biggest forehead I’ve ever seen. And all of a sudden, being a sex worker is embraced and even celebrated because it’s a guy doing it.

    Bravo’s definition seems to be that it’s a shrill, rich woman with an almost pathological desire to be on TV.
