Bethenny Frankel’s knack for making healthy food taste delicious elevated her to national prominence as a celebrated natural food chef. She’s the creator of the sought-after “Skinnygirl Margarita,” the best-selling author of Naturally Thin and The Skinnygirl Dish and a spokesperson for Pepperidge Farm.
Bethenny attended the National Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts and has a monthly column in Health Magazine and is a Contributing Lifestyle Editor for the US, UK and Australian editions of OK! Magazine. What we’re trying to say is…she’s in demand!
We were first introduced to Bethenny’s wit and wisdom watching her as the first runner-up on NBC’s The Apprentice: Martha Stewart. This experience led to her time on Bravo’s hit series The Real Housewives of New York for three seasons. She even scored her own a spin-off series, Bethenny Getting Married? It premiered with the highest ratings in Bravo history. Excellent!
Naturally Thin: Unleash Your Skinnygirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting remained on the New York Times bestseller list for an astonishing for 18 straight weeks. Her book, The Skinnygirl Dish: Easy Recipes for Your Naturally Thin Life was released just in time to support “new year, new me” resolutions with delicious, practical, effective recipes and lifestyle tweaks.
Bethanny launched the “Skinnygirl Margarita,” a bottled, pre-mixed beverage that drastically reduces the calories of the traditional cocktail. Households across the country have made Skinnygirl Margaritas their “it drink.” Pass the salt, please!
Bethanny currently resides in New York City with her husband, daughter and dog, Cookie. She’s on a mission to democratize healthy living through her appearances, books, columns and blogs. We’re just glad she found time to fit Skating with the Stars into her busy, busy schedule!
