All hail Queen of the Skinnygirl empire Bethenny Frankel and King of NY Real Estate Fredrik Eklund as they join forces to make an unbeatable property-slinging team on Bravo’s Bethenny & Fredrik. Both entrepreneurs have had royal success with their own Bravo shows (Bethenny on The Real Housewives of New York and Fredrik on Million Dollar Listing) where their corky and unabashed personalities stole hearts across the nation.
Bethenny is best known for her cocktail-company-turned-lifestyle empire, Skinnygirl. She recently expanded her brand to include a fashion line and a rumored dating app. Possibly inspired by Fredrik’s ventures into High Kick Wine and his flirt with the spirits industry, Bethenny decided to take on the upscale world of Manhattan real estate.
In true Bethenny-fashion, she dove into the new show head-first, teamed up with the best, and put her business savvy to her latest passion. She’s paired her intuitive eye for design with Fredrik’s expertise as the number one broker in the nation to become a powerhouse team, flipping multimillion-dollar luxury listings–and getting themselves into hilarious situations in the making.
On each episode of the show, Bethenny and Fredrik are either buying, renovating, or selling Manhattan real estate. “Bredrik” (if you will) are longtime friends but have drastically different business styles. While Fredrik is all high-end glamour, Bethenny’s more stay on budget. They both have made large monetary investments in each property they flip and every listing is an opportunity to gain or lose millions. Their polarized approaches—amplified by their big and contrasting personalities—are a recipe for some challenging projects and lots of laughs.
While navigating the new terrain of mixing business and friendship on the show, they will also be juggling their personal lives. With Fredrik’s new babies and Bethenny’s intriguing dating life, how will they manage to fit in another business endeavor?
In Bethenny’s words, “We’re insane masochists that love to laugh.”
This hilarious duo is tag-teaming the podium as well. They are now serving up keynote addresses with the same charm and wit you’ll find on their show. Apparently, after the first season, they aren’t tired of each other yet. They want to bring their charisma to entrepreneurs, real estate brokers, sales agents, and anyone who wants a good laugh and some business wisdom.
