Bethenny Frankel was thrilled when she got her talk show because she could have conversations for women and talk about the things that women want to talk about. And because she has plenty of experiences, she has been dishing out some details about her personal relationships, including her divorce from Jason Hoppy. But her ratings are supposedly suffering and she wants to get more celebrities onto the show. According to a new Radar Online report published on Oct. 9, Bethenny Frankel is now being told that she needs to stop talking about herself and her divorce in order to boost ratings.
Frankel’s ratings may not be as good as some expected. She fell behind Ellen DeGeneres, Dr. Oz and even Rachael Ray and Steve Wilkos - Jerry Springer’s former bodyguard. “Ellen wants Bethenny to stop yakking about the divorce because there is a public perception that she’s to blame for the split,” a source has revealed. “Jason is very sympathetic figure — a doting dad — and quite frankly, many of Bethenny’s viewers and fans don’t understand why she dumped him. Whenever Bethenny opines about how hard the divorce has been on her and bemoans that Jason wasn’t the love of her life, viewers turn the channel.”
Of course, Jason was labeled the perfect husband, and many have been disappointed over the divorce. One has to wonder if she feels that she can’t exactly be herself without talking about the struggles she is going through. Do you think she will stop talking about Jason?
