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, Bethenny made her highly anticipated return for season seven of “The Real Housewives of New York City” in 2015.
Bethenny is the creator of the low-calorie cocktail brand Skinnygirl Cocktails and partnered with Beam Suntory in 2011. The cocktail portfolio includes wines, flavored vodkas, and delicious ready-to-drink cocktails. Frankel is a brand collaborator, developer, and marketer for Skinnygirl Cocktails. As the founder and CEO 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 non-alcoholic beverages, microwave popcorn, candy, luncheon meats, salad dressings, coffee, tea, liquid sweeteners, 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.
