Bethenny Frankel is sticking around the reality the world of Reality TV.
The 46-year-old has joined forces with Million Dollar Listing New York’s Fredrik Eklund for a new series that will find the pair flipping houses.
Bethenny and Fredrik Property Project is the working title for the series, which will debut later this year. Something tells us that title will be changing because it’s awful.
It certainly sounds like Bravo is trying to capitalize on the success of HGTV’s Flip or Flop, but that show’s popularity exploded when series stars Christina and Tarek El Moussa confirmed their relationship was over.
Bethenny previously departed The Real Housewives of New York City to front Bethenny Ever After, but returned to the former when her show flatlined in the ratings.
There’s no word as of yet on what this means for her participation on RHONY, but there’s every reason to believe she’ll be back. The series took a nosedive in the drama department without her.
Whether she’s telling LuAnn de Lesseps that Tom D’Agostino is cheating on her, or throwing shade at the other housewives, she’s always been a delight to watch on TV.
That’s not to say the current season of the Bravo hit is good. In fact, the drama has been pretty much non-existent, but Tinsley Mortimer looks poised to send the drama into overdrive.
Bravo also confirmed renewals for every currently airing show in The Real Housewives franchise, Vanderpump Rules, Shahs of Sunset, Below Deck, Summer House, Flipping Out, Don’t Be Tardy, Married To Medicine and Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles.
Bravo knows that its audience loves trashy reality series, so all of the renewals were no-brainers.
