It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost ten years since Bethenny Frankel made her TV debut. While The Real Housewives of New York jumpstarted her fame, the natural food chef actually first appeared as a contestant on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart back in 2005. Bethenny has since gone on to mastermind a cocktail empire and land two Bravo spin-offs. It doesn’t stop there as Bethenny is now the proud owner of her very own talkshow!
