Bethenny Frankel may be a SkinnyGirl, but she’s got a fat wallet. But how much money does the Real Housewives of New York City star exactly make? Click through to find out Bethenny’s net worth by the numbers!
After a hiatus from the Bravo series and the cancellation of her talk show, Bethenny returned to RHONY for the seventh season and makes a reported $40,000 per episode! Not bad for the National Gourmet Culinary Institute-trained chef.
While the reality show really put her on the map, Bethenny made most of her fortune with her business, SkinnyGirl. However, the real gold mine for Frankel was the sale of her Skinnygirl drink line for a reported $100 million to Fortune Brands’ Beam Global.
The mogul still has a business empire with lifestyle company, Bethenny Skinny Girl, with all sorts of branded products from food to appliances. And rumor has it, she may be investing in a special strain of cannabis that reportedly doesn’t give the munchies after being photographed leaving a medical marijuana dispensary in Colorado earlier this year.
RadarOnline published details from her divorce filings with ex Jason Hoppy, and in addition to a hefty savings account, Bethenny received a $4,011,726 gross salary according to her W2 forms in 2012.
Before the divorce got messy, Bethenny had been living in a $4.9m New York City condominium with her estranged husband and daughter, Bryn. But now, she purchased a 2-bedroom $4.2m NYC apartment for her and her 5-year-old with 2,392 square-foot and some luxurious amenities.
Her most recent venture was her seventh book, “I Suck At Relationships So You Don’t Have To,” published in April. The four-time New York Times best-selling author also penned several other lifestyle books, a children’s book and a self-help book.
