Bethenny Frankel on 'Regis and Kelly': 'Real Housewives' was like a 'pyramid scam'

Bethenny Frankel helped "Live with Regis and Kelly" celebrate the first day of Season 23 in syndication on Monday, Sept. 6. Last week, Bethenny officially announced that she's not returning for Season 4 and when Regis Philbin asked her if she misses the housewives, she simply replied, "I don't." "I feel like it was a pyramid scam," Bethenny says. "And you're lucky to get out at the top and I don't want to go back in the bottom and get stuck in the middle." Regis, who doesn't believe reality shows are real at all, asked the former housewife just how much of the Bravo series is faked. To Read More Click Here .

Having Sex With Food on 'Bethenny Getting Married' (VIDEO)

Wow. Being pregnant apparently makes you kind of hungry. This current season of 'Bethenny Getting Married' is over. But on the latest episode (Thu., 10PM ET on Bravo) we get some "behind the scenes" footage. And through that, we learn just how passionate a very pregnant Bethenny Franklel can be about food. Beth eats some fancy doughnuts while hanging out with event planner Shawn. And here are a few things that she says while eating dessert: 1) "Kill yourself. Kill ... yourself." (By the way, it makes no sense that she says this, but whatever.) 2) "It's like sex." (That is -- eating doughnuts is apparently like having sex. Okay then, Bethenny.) 3) "If I were you, I would stick my penis right in the middle." (This being Beth's expression of pleasure at eating doughnuts, and her recommendation to Shawn at what he should maybe do the doughnuts.) ... All right, then. So; just to briefly recap. Beth was really hungry. And she was being a bit crazy, but we'll chalk that up to the whole pregnancy thing. Source & Video

'Chelsea Lately': Bethenny Frankel Talks Controversy Over Rapid Baby-Weight Loss (VIDEO)

Magazine editors, new moms, nutritionists, doctors, Bethenny Frankel fans/haters -- they've all given their two cents on Bethenny's rapid weight loss following the birth of her daughter Bryn. She told 'Us Weekly' she lost 29 of her 35 pounds of baby weight in the first three weeks, and the firestorm of controversy grew from there. On 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!), Frankel discussed the issue and was relieved (and perhaps surprised) to find Chelsea Handler understood her argument. "I lost probably most of it by the time I left the hospital," said Frankel. "C-section -- you're there for six days and you don't eat for three of them. And then I probably had like 10 pounds left, and it came off." Handler commented, "I remember Kate Hudson, when she got pregnant, she turned into like an Oompa-Loopma --" "Because she probably hadn't eaten for 10 years," interjected Frankel. "Yeah, and you're like, well obviously this is not natural for you to be this thin if this is what happens when you get pregnant -- you look like a maniac," said Handler. "That's the whole point!" agreed Frankel. Source & Video

Sex-Starved Jason and Bethenny Are Going Crazy (VIDEO)

On 'Bethenny Getting Married' (Thu., 10PM ET on BRAVO), it's been five weeks since Bethenny Frankel gave birth, and her husband Jason Hoppy is going crazy. "I just wasn't aware that the deprivation of sex would send Jason into a complete tailspin," says Bethenny. "You cannot have sex for six weeks after you give birth. Doctors orders." But weeks of abstaining could be affecting Bethenny too, as she becomes practically delirious. She turns the word "Montauk" -- on the eastern tip of Long Island -- into a sexual joke and becomes hysterical with laughter. Jason is not amused. Source & Video

'Bethenny Getting Married?' preview: Bethenny Frankel goes bridezilla

So far, we may not have seen the worst of Bethenny Frankel on "Bethenny Getting Married?," but the shotgun wedding is fast-approaching and it seems as if she's going full-on bridezilla on us. Relatively speaking, Bethenny has kept her anxiety about the fast-approaching wedding at a reasonable level up until now. In the preview clip above, though, Bethenny's control freak is joining the party. Her wedding planner isn't helping matters, but it's his job to keep the train on the tracks. But after Bethenny saw his choices for the location (with visions of a Four Seasons Hotel wedding on her mind), she may have lost all trust in his taste level. At any rate, she's not giving up the reigns to him anytime soon. "Bethenny Getting Married" airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. EST on Bravo. Source & Preview
