Bethenny Frankel has grown increasingly angry with Ellen DeGeneres , for not helping to get A-list celebrities to appear on her fledgling chat fest, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

DeGeneres produces Frankel’s freshman talk show, Bethenny, and the first time host “is absolutely peeved that she has been unable to get a big name celebrity to come on. Frankel was told numerous times by DeGeneres before the show premiered that she would absolutely help her in getting all of the big names in show business,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.

“During Bethenny’s trial run, DeGeneres pulled some strings and got Justin Bieber to come on. DeGeneres’ former booker is now working for Bethenny but he’s been unable to get Sandra Bullock, Gwyneth Paltrow or Miley Cyrus. The big name celebrities don’t want to go on a talk show hosted by a former Bravo housewife. It’s causing major drama behind the scenes of Frankel’s show, which is struggling in the ratings.”

During the ladies respective premiere week, guests on Ellen included, Leah Remini , Simon Cowell and Celine Dion. Frankel’s premiere week guests were Nick Cannon, Flo Rida & Kelly Osbourne .

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes was coerced to appear on Bethenny’s talk show, after appearing on Ellen’s.

Leakes was told in no uncertain terms, “If NeNe wanted to go on Ellen [in the future,] she had to agree to appear on Bethenny,” an insider previously told us.

Since Bethenny has been unable to score any major celebrities, she “has been forced to focus on more lifestyle and cooking segments.

By comparison, Queen Latifah who also has a new talker, has already interviewed John Travolta and Will Smith.

“DeGeneres never promised to turn over her Rolodex of celebrity friends but it was always understood that she would give Frankel the foundation and support to get the show off the ground, the rest is on her,” the source adds.
