Bethenny Frankel’s no-nonsense demeanor definitely makes her the real-est of the Real Housewives of New York.Ã‚Â But now she’s trying to drop her trademark ‘tude, and even got a coach to help her! In an effort to make her syndicated “advice-based” talk show more sell-able, Bethenny has hired a mentor to essentially teach her to be nice. On air, at least.
The reality star recently shot the pilot for an “advice-based” show, but the reactions have been mostly negative so far. Producers think it’s her brash New York manner that rubbed test audiences the wrong way. Ã¢â‚¬Å“She came off as too aggressive,Ã¢â‚¬Â a source told the New York Post. So now they’re calling in outside help to smooth out the tough-talking Manhattanite’sÃ‚Â rough edges. The coach would offer her advice like “speaking more slowly,” and “being nicer,” the source continues.
We’d definitely like to watch the de-bitchification process in action. In fact, we’d like to watch that way more than we’d like to watch her talk show. First she gets lost at sea, and now she’d a modern day My Fair Lady? Once again, Bethenny Frankel’s real life proves to be much more interesting than any reality show could ever hope to be. Maybe a network could combine these two concepts and leave her and a niceness coach stranded on a deserted island. Forever.
