Biography Print Bio

Natural foods chef, best-selling author, reality TV star, self-made businesswoman, and mom, Bethenny Frankel first came to national attention with her wit, wisdom, and humor when she was named first runner-up on NBC’s The Apprentice: Martha Stewart. Her success on the series led her to Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City for three seasons, as well as two spin-off series on the network, Bethenny Getting Married? and Bethenny Ever After… After a three-season hiatus, she made her highly anticipated return for season seven of The Real Housewives of New York City.

Bethenny is the creator of the low calorie cocktail brand Skinnygirl Cocktails and partnered with Beam Suntory in 2011. The cocktail portfolio now includes over 20 products including wines, flavored vodkas, and delicious ready-to-drink cocktails. Frankel is a brand collaborator, developer, and marketer for Skinnygirl Cocktails. As the owner of Skinnygirl, Bethenny has created a thriving lifestyle brand featuring products offering women practical solutions to everyday problems. Some of the many Skinnygirl products include “Sparklers” non-alcoholic beverages, microwave popcorn, snacks, hummus, dips, nutrition bars, salad dressings, liquid sweeteners and water enhancers, shapewear, and appliances. In 2013, Frankel brought her distinct voice and candid point of view to daytime television on Bethenny, her nationally syndicated daytime talk program, and she has been named one of the “Top 100 Most Powerful Celebrities” by Forbes magazine.

She is the four-time best-selling author of Skinnydipping, A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out Of Life, Naturally Thin: Unleash Your Skinnygirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting, and The Skinnygirl™ Dish: Easy Recipes for Your Naturally Thin Life.
