Bethenny Frankel Has a New TV Project... and It Involves Someone Unexpected
The RHONY alum is joining forces with a familiar face for her next series.
The B is back. This week, it was confirmed that Bethenny Frankel is set to return to the small screen alongside Shark Tank’s Kevin O’Leary on the all-new season of CNBC’s Money Court. The upcoming season of Money Court, which is “focused on financial feuds,” per a press release, will premiere in early 2023.
The press release also notes that together “they weigh in on and resolve a wide range of business disputes and chart a path forward. On the docket this season, Kevin and Bethenny settle money issues and dilemmas that every small and expanding business faces... Together they’ll carefully consider all sides of a case, examine all relevant evidence, and ultimately deliver financial justice!”
The Real Housewives of New York City alum opened up about the gig in a statement: “This has been my best television experience to date. The range in reviewing small businesses where everything is on the line to the riskiest hundred-million-dollar conflicts, the stakes couldn’t be higher. Kevin and I have entirely complementary skill sets, experience, and expertise. This makes these verdicts so comprehensive and effective. We really are saving small and large businesses alike. Our sum is greater than its parts. There is nothing like this on television, and America needs a show that exhibits how to resolve business conflict in a creative, tactical, strategic, and methodical manner. I was blown away by this production, by CNBC’s dedication to providing real solutions for business owners, and by Kevin’s knowledge and desire to collaborate for the greater good. This is the space I was born to be in.”
She also commented on working with Kevin in a similar post on Instagram.
Bethenny’s time on RHONY definitely highlighted the business side of her life and her evolution as an entrepreneur, and her entrepreneurial side was also featured on Bethenny & Fredrik, which aired on Bravo in 2018.
Fans will recall that Bethenny and Kevin have crossed paths before, thanks to Shark Tank. In the vintage BravoTV.com video below, Bethenny opened up about her 2017 Shark Tank gig.

RHONY is streaming on Peacock and available on the Bravo app.
