Are RHONY Producers Upset With Bethenny Frankel's Performance?

A few months ago, Bravo officially announced that Bethenny Frankel was returning to The Real Housewives of New York City in hopes to rescue the series after ratings declined last season. The cast is currently busy filming Season 7 but according to a new report, producers are not happy with Bethenny's performance.

RadarOnline is reporting that producers aren’t happy with her performance so far, since she’s been playing nice and using it as a platform to rehab her tarnished image.

Producers aren’t happy because “Bethenny is insisting on featuring her Skinnygirl products at every opportunity. The requests from Bethenny have crew members concerned the upcoming season will be one big promo for all things Bethenny.”

In just one instance, cameras filmed Frankel’s 44th birthday party at Gilded Lily, and “Bethenny made certain the bar was stocked with all of her Skinny Girl alcohol,” the source said. “It just feels tacky and cheap.”

All that would be fine if she delivered the fireworks she’d been known for on previous seasons, but the source said that hasn’t panned out.

“As far as bringing the drama to spice things up, Bethenny is proving to be a downer in that department too,” said the source.” She is trying to be the mother hen, and providing support to LuAnn de Lesseps as she begins dating after her breakup with Jacques.”

“There is simmering tension with Kristin Taekman, but Bethenny is very hesitant to get into heated fights with her on camera,” the source revealed.

“Producers brought Bethenny back to spice things up, and she is acting like some sort of advice guru,” the source explained. “It’s obvious to everyone that Bethenny is only using the show to rehab her public image which took a huge hit after her divorce proceedings from estranged husband, Jason Hoppy began.”
