40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards - ArrivalsBETHENNY Frankel was in dire financial straits before being cast on The Real Housewives of New York City.

According to RadarOnline, Frankel — who’s widely recognized as the most successful of all the Housewives, with best-selling books, her Skinnygirl drink empire that she sold for $100 million, and a new talk show — was on the brink of financial ruin just before she started filming.

“Bethenny was so stressed out before she was on The Real Housewives of New York City.” a source close to her revealed.

“She had done that reality show with Martha Stewart and had her Bethenny Bakes but she had nothing else lined up and she was panicked.

“Bethenny said she only had $8,000 to her name and she had to take the job on the show.

“Bethenny was in the same boat as Teresa or anyone else a few years ago so she shouldn’t be calling out the other housewives. She’s being a hypocrite and forgetting where she came from.”
