I finally got to see the show.
I give Bethenny a lot of credit for coming as far as she has.
The show is styled after Ellen's, it seems. Very similar beginning to the show - she dances just like Ellen does at the beginning.
For me, though, the similarities to Ellen then end.
I don't find Bethenny engaging at all as a talk show host.
I've seen Denise Richards on the WWHL show with Andy Cohen and he is so warm and engaging that it spreads to Denise who, herself, comes across as pretty shy. Bethenny, IMO, didn't set her at ease at all and I found the segment, and the show, very painful to watch and turned it off.
