ABOUT SKINNYGIRL
From a natural foods chef to best-selling author, reality TV star to self-made businesswoman and mom, Bethenny Frankel’s wit, wisdom and humor first came to national attention when she was named first runner-up on NBC’s “The Apprentice: Martha Stewart.”  Network executives saw a personality they couldn’t ignore, and her connection to the audience, so they put her center stage on Bravo’s hit series “The Real Housewives of New York” for three seasons. She emerged as the star of the series, with a huge network of fans, which led Bravo to create a spin-off series, “Bethenny Getting Married?” that premiered with the highest ratings ever in Bravo history and continued with “Bethenny Ever After…”
which aired for two seasons.

She is the four-time bestselling author of Skinnydipping, A Place of Yes, Naturally Thin, and The Skinnygirl™ Dish. She is the creator of the Skinnygirl™ brand--which extends to cocktails, fitness, and health and focuses on practical solutions for women--and in 2013 she took the stage as the host of her syndicated daytime talkshow, "bethenny". She has been named one of the Top 100 Most Powerful Celebrities by Forbes magazine, featured in both Health magazine and Glamour.  She is a graduate of the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts. Bethenny lives in New York with her daughter, Bryn, and dog, Cookie. Visit www.bethenny.com
