Bethenny Frankel gears up for talk show, sparks pregnancy rumors
The season 3 finale of Bethenny Frankel's show "Bethenny Ever After" aired on May 28 and while the big reveal at the end of the episode featured Frankel telling her staff about moving to Los Angeles for her six-week trial run of her talk show, there were hints that she and husband Jason Hoppy were prepared to expand their family.
Frankel scored a deal for a six-week summer trial run for a talk show, which films in Los Angeles. The show launches in six markets on several Fox affiliates on June 11.
"I'm about to embark on an incredible and memorable journey. I am fortunate enough to have my own talk show -- a place where I can talk to women every day about EVERYTHING, all the things that we talk to each other about in private over cocktails," Frankel wrote on her Bravo blog on May 25. "This is it! This isn't your mother's talk show. The queen of TMI is coming to daytime. I can't wait to take the next step with you."
Frankel was spotted out with husband Hoppy and her daughter Bryn in Malibu, California, over the Memorial Day weekend wearing a clingy maxi dress. Although the photos, which can be seen on Celebuzz, sparked rumors that Frankel is pregnant, the website quotes a source close to the reality star who denies Frankel is expecting baby No. 2.
The 41-year-old was in fact pregnant earlier this year, but in February, Frankel said on the "Today" show that she suffered a miscarriage after eight weeks.
The third season of "Bethenny Ever After" also highlighted some tough times for Frankel and Hoppy as rumors of divorce appear in the press.
For her part, Frankel has kept quiet about divorce rumors but when a Twitter follower asked her on May 23, Frankel reTweeted and responded, "We're going to talk about EVERYTHING on my show! June 11 on @foxbroadcasting. "
Frankel married Hoppy in 2010 and gave birth to their daughter Bryn in May 2010. The couple's wedding and Frankel's pregnancy was documented on the show "Bethenny Getting Married?"
The reality star recently expanded her Skinnygirl empire to include a shape wear line called Skinnygirl Solutions. The line has tanks, shorts and bodysuits under the $50 mark, which feature retro shapes and lace prints that don't need to be completely hidden.
