Bethenny Frankel is arguably the most successful woman to come out of Bravo‘s Real Housewives franchise. The Big Apple native first rose to fame as the runner-up on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart in 2005. A few years later, Frankel appeared on The Real Housewives of New York City, spending eight seasons on the show since its 2008 premiere. The TV personality quickly became a fan favorite who was unafraid to confront drama with her cast members. Frankel inspired several spinoffs shows on Bravo and elsewhere: Bethenny Ever After (2010-12), Bethenny & Fredrik (2018), Bethenny (2013-14), and The Big Shot with Bethenny (2021).

After the success of her 2009 book, Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting, the entrepreneur began what would become her incredibly successful lifestyle brand, Skinnygirl, which has produced several books, an exercise DVD, jeans, apparel, a cocktail line and a full offering of diet-friendly foods, like candy, popcorn, and salad dressings.
