Celebrity Speaker Bethenny Frankel’s knack for healthy foods started off as a hobby to now elevate her to national prominence as a celebrated natural food chef. Bethenny is the creator of Skinnygirl, and The New York Times bestselling author of Naturally Thin, The Skinnygirl Dish, and A Place of Yes.
She is a graduate of the National Gourmet Institute for Health & Culinary Arts and is focused on sharing her knowledge and passion for healthy living. Bethenny is a regular in publications such as The New York Times, Forbes and Glamour and has a monthly column in Health Magazine. A highly sought after guest on news and entertainment TV shows, she brings her expertise and candid funny one liners to many different segments.
Bethenny Frankel first made her TV debut when she was runner up on NBC’s The Apprentice: Martha Stewart. After an audience of network executives saw her bubbly personality and desire for helping people, Bravo put her on their hit series The Real Housewives of New York for three seasons.
It was announced in October 2014, that Bethenny would return to The Real Housewives of New York for their seventh season, after being absent for three seasons prior. Bethenny was the star of the series which led to her getting a spin-off series, Bethenny Getting Married? which premiered with the highest ratings ever in Bravo’s history. This hit show led to another successful series called Bethenny Ever After…
Her first book, Naturally Thin: Unleash Your Skinnygirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting stayed on the bestselling list for 18 consecutive weeks. Bethenny’s second book, The Skinnygirl Dish: EasyRecipes for Your Naturally Thin Life was released in time for all the New Year resolutions and featured delicious recipes and easy lifestyle tweaks.
The latest thing on Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl mind was Skinnygirl Margarita’s—a premixed alcoholic beverage with clear tequila, lime juice, and a splash of citrus liqueur. These drinks were a hit in households across the country and in 2011 Skinnygirl Cocktails was acquired by Beam Global, with Bethenny Frankel as the brand collaborator, developer, and marketer.
Her company, Skinnygirl Cocktails, is one of the fastest growing spirits brands in the world. Skinnygirl Sangria launched in June 2011 and on September 26, 2011 she announced her newest flavor, White Cranberry Cosmo. Since then, Skinnygirl has further expanded into a global lifestyle brand, ranging in categories such as food/drink, supplements, cookware, shapewear and even apparel.
Skinnygirl is just one example of her incredible entrepreneurial success, however she further displayed her business sense appearing as a guest shark on the hit TV series Shark Tank. Most recently, Frankel has since stepped down from “The Real Housewives of New York City” to focus on her further entrepreneurial projects, but also with a larger goal in mind.
Frankel’s philanthropy efforts are most admirable, being the founder of BStrong, which is a disaster relief organization. Being very successful in raising money, the foundation has helped respond to disasters in Texas, Mexico, Puerto Rico and more. BStrong additionally aimed to provide supplies to hospitals across the US in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, as they raised money to help provide equipment such as masks, goggles, sheets and gowns.
Most recently, Bethenny hosted her own reality TV show called The Big Shot with Bethenny. The show had contestants in competition against each other with the winner being named second-in-command of Bethenny’s brand Skinnygirl. While being focused on her business ventures, Bethenny is also a loving mother to her daughter Bryn, who just turned 11 years old.
Bethenny Frankel will continue to amaze herself in her latest endeavors and is on a mission to democratize healthy living, to help make information available to everyone she can reach. She is available for speaking engagements, autograph signings, and hosting.
