It’s official: after just one season, Bethenny Frankel’s day time talk show has been cancelled due to low ratings and, as some outlets are revealing, an inability to connect with her audience.
“Bethenny,” executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres, officially debuted in September after a trial run last spring. But ratings for Frankel’s show — with around 1 million viewers a day — lagged behind her talk show competitors Steve Harvey, Wendy Williams and Queen Latifah.”
Telepictures, the brains behind Frankel, said in a statement, “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.”
Frankel also commented on her job loss saying, “I had a blast doing this show with Telepictures. 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.”
Looks like the former “Real Housewives of New York” star, 45, will have plenty of time to focus on her family and line of Skinnygirl beverages. – ruthie hawkins[email protected]
