NEW YORK, NY – 27, 2010 – It’s all about brides and babies on Bravo’s newest docu-series “Bethenny Getting Married?” featuring “Real Housewife of New York City” star Bethenny Frankel as she prepares for two of life’s biggest milestones – a wedding and a baby – simultaneously. Watch as Bethenny’s life goes into over-drive as she prepares for motherhood and becoming a real “Real Housewife” when she weds fiancé Jason Hoppy, all while juggling her burgeoning career as an author and natural foods chef. “Bethenny Getting Married?” premieres Thursday, June 10 at 10PM ET/PT.
As one of the breakout characters of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” Bethenny has shared her life with millions, and now in her own docu-series, fans will get an even closer look into everything Bethenny. Viewers will follow the outspoken New Yorker as she juggles her happy love life, plans for a wedding and prepares for baby, all while managing her insanely busy career. Somewhere in her hectic schedule she finds time to write two books on healthy living that were both included on the New York Times Best Sellers List – Naturally Thin: Unleash Your Skinny girl & Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting and The Skinnygirl Dish: Easy Recipes for Your Naturally Thin Life – and continues to manage her line of “Skinnygirl” cocktails. Helping Bethenny balance her life are ever-patient and loving fiancé Jason Hoppy, tireless assistant Julie, dedicated intern Max and beloved dog Cookie.
Meet the cast:
Bethenny Frankel – This always-on-the-go workaholic manages her successful line of Skinnygirl Margaritas, two books on the New York Times Best Sellers list, and a career as a natural foods chef with a jam packed social calendar. But Bethenny finally found time for what’s most important – falling in love and starting a family. Now as she adds moving into a new apartment and preparing for her wedding and a baby to the mix – how will she juggle it all?
Jason Hoppy – The Manhattan businessman who finally swept Bethenny off her feet, helps to keep her grounded and calm when all things Bethenny move at warp speed. He enjoys golf, working out, playing basketball and experiencing all that New York has to offer with Bethenny and her beloved dog Cookie.
Julie Plake – Bethenny’s hard-working, dedicated assistant helps keep her personal and business life in tact. After meeting Bethenny at an event in the Hamptons, she took on the task of organizing Bethenny’s incredibly busy and never boring schedule, all while trying to find the time to balance her own life. When she’s not managing Bethenny’s jam-packed calendar, she loves both watching and playing sports and cooking.
Max Meisel – This sports junkie came on board as Bethenny’s intern to help manage the crazy workload. Often the butt of Bethenny’s jokes, Max’s thick skin and ability to roll with the punches has enabled him to transition from football jock to “Skinnygirl” connoisseur without breaking a sweat. When he’s not dropping off Bethenny’s dresses at the tailor or diving into lengthy conversations about his passion for “cougars,” he spends his time playing sports and writing screenplays.
The series is produced by Shed Media U.S. for Bravo. Jennifer O’Connell, Matt Anderson and Nick Emmerson serve as executive producers.
