Bethenny Frankel got a bad Valentine's Day present as she learned that her daytime talk show has been cancelled. According to Hollywood Life on Feb. 14, the former "Real Housewives of New York" star informed her staff with a telephone call.
Frankel is currently traveling and couldn't let her staff know in person, but one source said that she was very emotional when letting everyone know that her show has been cancelled. She was described as "emotional" and "sounded teary" while saying the show was cancelled because she couldn't be edgy enough for her fans.
"Bethenny" tested in markets in the summer of 2012 before debuting nationwide in Fall 2013.
There will be two more months of shooting for the show before it finally leaves the air in May. Frankel said that, because the show has been cancelled, she doesn't need to hold back anymore and has "nothing to lose" for the next two months.
This comes at the time that Bravo has announced a "Real Housewives" awards show and will announce the first ever lifetime achievement award winner during the preview for this season's "Real Housewives of New York City" series. That makes it seem like Bethenny Frankel might be the first recipient of that award.
Frankel became a huge star on "Real Housewives of New York" and then became a hugely successful entrepreneur thanks to her Skinnygirl products. "Bethenny" has received consistent low ratings and poor critical reviews, which led to its cancellation.
