Bethenny Frankel‘s daytime talk show continues to slip in the ratings, and RadarOnline.com has learned the former Real Housewives of New York City star’s show has dropped to number 14 — out of just 18.
According to the rating numbers ending the week of Oct. 13, Bethenny is holding steady at number 2 in terms of talk show newcomers (behind Queen Latifah), but in overall household rankings she’s only bringing slightly more viewers than Arsenio, The Test and Trisha which are tied for number 16, andThe Better Show.
Bethenny showed no changes in their viewership from the week before — neither losing nor gaining viewers — and this will likely spell trouble for the struggling talk show.
But Frankel blames a poor showing during her first season on a lack of A-list guests — which DeGeneres promised her.
“[Frankel] 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 told Radar.
“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.”
In fact, Frankel couldn’t even get her old Bravo co-stars to appear on her show!
Do you think DeGeneres’ appearance on Frankel’s show that aired Oct. 16 will give her the boost she needs in ratings? Sound off in comments below…
