Bethenny Frankel's divorce is affecting her professional career?

Bethenny Frankel was once a big reality show hit when she was filming “The Real Housewives of New York” and her spin-off, “Bethenny Ever After.” She was a hit because fans got to see her balance a successful career and her planning her wedding to Jason Hoppy. However, people feel betrayed because she hasn't dished many details about her personal life after filing for divorce. According to a new Radar Online report published on May 30, Bethenny Frankel's career could be suffering a little due to her personal life.

In addition, her talk show has been cancelled and it won't be continuing after the summer break. Instead, she has been working on new Skinnygirl products, including a new snack that will be hitting the shelves in the fall. She has also been writing a children's book, “Cookie Meets Peanut,” a book inspired by her dog, Cookie, and her daughter Bryn, who she calls her peanut.

However, this weekend, she was scheduled to do a book signing in Manhattan, but she apparently bailed because there weren't enough people there. “At 2:15 p.m., there were four people in line for Bethenny,” an insider revealed to the New York Post. “Representatives for her publisher were sent out around the expo to recruit people to come to her stand. Through sheer hard work they managed to get some people over. After blaming others for the poor turnout, Bethenny left the show early.”

She was supposed to start at 2 p.m., but there were only four people in line at that time. In addition, she was supposed to stick around until 3 p.m., but she left much earlier than that because of the small turnout of fans. “She left — there really weren’t that many people who showed up,” the source said. “I don’t think she stayed past 2:30.” In other words, people who wanted to come by between 2:30 and 3 p.m. to get a copy signed could not get one done.

As for Bethenny's excuse, she wanted to pick up her daughter from school. Her team claimed that at least 100 people showed up and that she left earlier to go get Bryn from school. Even with 100 people showing up, it is far from the amount of people who would have shown up a couple of years ago. It is also possible that her divorce is giving her a bad image, as viewers loved Jason Hoppy.

Do you think that her fame and her success is running out?
