Bethenny Frankel‘s talk show is going about as well as Kris Jenner‘s. Each had their own big name guest that they got by pulling strings. Kris got Kanye, by begging Kim
and/or threatening her life, and Bethenny got Justin Bieber by using Ellen DeGeneres. But then things started to go downhill. Here’s apparently what’s going on with Bethenny and Ellen, via The Stir:
Apparently, Bethenny’s new daytime show is doing, in a word, dismally. Ratings are so bad that Ellen DeGeneres, the talk show queen who gave Bethenny her show, has asked to have her name as removed from the show’s credits because she’s “embarrassed.” [...]
During Bethenny’s trial run, Ellen was able to pull some strings and, by the grace of God, get Justin Bieber on the show. But since her show has been picked up, Ellen and her booking agent, who reportedly promised to hook Bethenny up, haven’t been able to get a single big-name celeb on the show. The supposed reason? No one wants to make an appearance on a show hosted by a former Housewife. Ellen’s people evidently have tried to get Sandra Bullock, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Miley Cyrus on the show, but all refused to make an appearance based on that very reason.
I love Bethenny’s “Skinnygirl” alcohols but other than that, she does nothing for me. She’s just kind of there, hovering with her gigantic sleepy smile.
Whose show would you rather watch: Kris’ or Bethenny’s?
