    We’re really sinking to the bottom fast if there are human beings that actually will watch this garbage.

  • Ryan

    I’m glad. This woman is made for TV and from the clips I’ve seen of her talk show it’s seems to be really great.

  • Stephen judson

    Her show along with Wendy William’s mesh well over here in NY.

  • MBmomof3

    Bethany + talk show = puke. Who thought this would be a good idea?

  • NJTaurian

    I’ve been hearing good things about Bethenny…I may have to forego The View for a couple of days and check it out!

  • Ryan

    @MBmomof3 Ellen DeGeneres

  • RHONJd

    Great for Bethenny. I surely hope the show gets a full pick up. I live in Florida, and have to watch the episodes online because it doesn’t air in Florida :( But Great job Beth! I remember her start on RHONY. She has come a long way. She is the true definition of a fighter!

  • Dontryl Alexander

    that show is… BORING!

  • TV Gord

    Of course it will do well. It’s all a part of the trashification of our culture. Her segment on sex toys today was very illuminating.

  • MBmomof3

    I know Ellen D is the producer. I like Ellen and as talk shows go, Ellen’s is pretty good, but she has talent. Do we really need more no-talent gabbers polluting our airways. Enough with the talk shows.

  • Sam

    Bethenny and Wendy seem to be a good match for each other for one to lead into the other. Actually, Bethenny will do well as a lead in for Wendy since she’s already beating her out the gate even though Wendy likely has the better time slots for now.

  • Kate

    Im so mad that the show does not play here in Chicago. UGHHH

  • Margie

    I find her voice extremely annoying…did not like show

  • Roberta

    She is so annoying, and desperate. That nagging loud voice should be muted. The people who don’t get this show in their area are lucky, per chance they might channel surf and hear this moron’s irritating voice.

  • Dallas

    WTF? Seriously?

  • Madeline

    Bethenney’s voice is just too much for me. She is non stop and interrupts her guests. You would think that she was the most tortured person in the world. Let’s send her to Bosnia to see the results of real tortured children. I really congratulate her on her success. She worked really hard for it but I really can’t stand her moaning and complaining any more about her life.

  • someone

    It sucks that my mom is going to drag me along to watch this show live

  • Chrisann D

    MBMom, Hey. I have not seen one second of any of the Housewives of wherever…I agree not the least bit interested in TRASH Tv. Give me scripted drama or comedy anyday. You will have to let me know how the Loving Llandiew trip goes. So excited for you!

  • MBmomof3

    Hi Chrisann, Im enjoying the Dallas reboot. Love hearing that themesong!

  • Chrisann D

    Hi MBMom, Shoot I forgot about Dallas. I saw….I think it was Jay Leno had Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and forget Sue Ellens real name on his show. or maybe it was David Letterman. I will have to program it in the DVR so I can catch it next time. GH was good today but it has been good every day lately. I wonder if they are really going to build the Llandview set. Hope so.
