Bethenny Frankel is this Real Housewives of NYC what Kenya is to Atlanta - the Queen B of the circle. It's an easy crown to carry around, seeing that you are dealing with a group of outspoken and fairly rich women, who certainly didn't get to the top by being timid. But, like Nene, Frankel is loved for her ability to dominate the group dyanamics with her big personality. Here's everything else you probably didn't know about the businesswoman.
SHE'S BEEN MARRIED TWICE
Her highly publicised marriage to Jason Hoppy was as splashed out across tabloids as much as the consequent divorce. While Bethenny has spoken about how exhausting the divorce has been, she's done this before. In 1996, Frankel was married to a certain Peter Sussman. The marriage didn't last too long.
SHE WAS ON MARTHA STEWART'S REALITY SHOW
Bethenny has made quite the name for herself on the reality show, but her knack for reality television goes way back. Before this gig, she took part on Martha Stewart's short-lived The Apprentice spin-off. In fact, she was a runner up on the show.
SHE'S AN NYU ALUMNI!
She graduated with a Degree in Psychology and Communications at the University of New York. So that's how she became so well spoken!
Catch Bethenny Frankel on the Real Housewives of New York City, Mondays to Thursday at 18:00.
