Reality star and lifestyle expert Bethenny Frankel is getting ready to hit the ground running for 2011. She’s currently filming the second season of her popular spin-off Bethenny’s Getting Married? which will air next year, and she’s got a self-help book, A Place Of Yes, to be released in March 2011.
Viewers fell in love with Bethenny on the first three seasons of Real Housewives of New York City and then followed her to Bethenny’s Getting Married? where she married husband Jason Hoppy and gave birth to a baby girl, Bryn, now 5 months old, on Mother’s Day of this year. Bethenny spoke to Parade about getting it all done, and putting her family first.
Bethenny says if her family can’t be accommodated, she won’t pursue a project:
I can’t work without my family being with me. I don’t want to go away for three days without the baby. We all travel together. My husband is very supportive, so on weekends, when he’s not working, he’ll come with me. Being with my family is my highest priority. I don’t do anything if I can’t take my family with me.”
Now that she’s married with a baby, she promises the name of the show will change, and that they’ve had “a lot of good ideas” about the name change. She promises next season, each episode will focus on “issues” that married couples face.
