Business of Being a Housewife with Bethenny
Drama, drama, drama! That’s how I like my reality TV. It should come as no surprise that I just can’t get enough of the Real Housewives franchise, and when I was invited to attend an intimate Q&A session with Bethenny Frankel in Sydney; I was there with bells on!
Bethenny a reality star, entrepreneur, philanthropist and the list goes on, is currently down under promoting season 10 of the Real Housewives of New York City. From the moment Bethenny entered the room she had everyone’s focus and complete attention, so it’s no surprise she’s one of the most successful housewives in the franchise’s history. With several businesses, TV programmes and charities, it's impressive how she can have so many balls in the air at the one time. According to Bethenny, it’s all down to being ‘organised in all aspects of my life from my schedule, businesses and even my fridge’. Bethenny also went on to say her business success is down to using her strengths which include being direct and delegating. While she enjoys being busy, being organised allows her to use her time efficiently allowing her to spend more time with her daughter "time is more valuable then money" Frankel went on to say.
Listening to Bethenny speak it wasn’t like listening to a reality star but more of a business coach – she’s very inspiring and empowering. I must say I was expecting diva antics and there was none of that.
When asked about her relationships with women on the show, Frankel admits she’s close with the women; however, they’re not her best friends. Frankel goes on to say that being on a reality show means she may have to bring up personal conversations she's had with the women and doesn’t want to be placed in that situation.
So what should we expect in season 10 of the Real Housewives of New York? This season follows Bethanny’s incredibly busy life with her businesses and humanitarian efforts in Puerto Rico, while Luanne is picking up the pieces after her marriage with Tom fell apart. Meanwhile, Sonja is trying to get her life back on track after a summer away, only to find her feud with Tinsley is alive and well. That’s not the only feud as Dorinda is adamant in putting Sonja in her place, while Ramona’s tumultuous relationship with Bethenny continues, Ramona has also caught the decorating bug. In case you can’t tell, it’s going to be a cracker of a season.
The Real Housewives of New York City season 10 is now streaming on Hayu reality on demand.
