Bethenny Frankel‘s talk show is getting nowhere fast, despite being helmed by talk show master Ellen Degeneres. The show, Bethenny, which is produced by Ellen’s company, continues to suck in terms of ratings and she’s floundering around during each show in attempts to generate enough oomph to draw in viewers. According to recent reports, Bethenny has resorted to asking her friends to ask celebrities if they want to come on her show!
“She’s resorted to having her friends ask celebrities that they know come on the show lately,” a source for Radar says. “And once the guests show up they find out that everything is manufactured. All shows have a ‘pre-interview’ for guests where they talk about what Bethenny is going to say to them and then how they should respond. It’s basically a dry run for the show, but the guests say the pre-interview is totally fake. Bethenny has apparently started ambushing guests trying to start fights.”
Seems like there’s some major disaster up ahead for this show if she and the producers don’t find away to save this sinking ship. Another point of contention between her and the producers rests in the fact that she won’t stop bringing up the topics of sex! Once in a while is fine, but she apparently thinks that this will draw in major views — but so far her sexy-time chats haven’t been overwhelmingly popular.
What about you? Do you enjoy Bethenny? Or do you think this show should get the big ol’ axe? I’m kind of just like: Why did she get a talk show in the first place?
