HughE Dillon One-Shot: Bethenny Frankel at Xfinity Live

The reality star makes a Philly appearance, and her new talk show debuts.

Bethenny Frankel made an appearance at Xfinity Live yesterday for a happy-hour party and Q&A session hosted by Fox 29’s Mike Jerrick and Karen Hepp and 95.7 BEN-FM’s Marilyn Russell to the delight of hundreds of fans who showed up to see her. The former Real Housewives of New York star and Skinnygirl margarita mogul kicked off her own daytime talk show yesterday, Bethenny, which can be seen weekdays at 11 a.m. on Fox 29.  She’ll get a six-week test run in six markets during the summer. But I have to warn you: It would have been better to have scheduled the show at 11 p.m. if the racy chit-chatter that went on yesterday is any indication. She told me that “Fox just wanted me to be myself, and that’s what you’re going to see.” The first day’s topics included penis size. She asked guest D.L. Hughley if black men have larger penises than white men; she also discussed masturbation with an audience member, and how you can use sour cream to cure razor burn in your armpits. Check out today to see which Philly restaurants are Bethenny’s favorites, and which cheesesteak place she’s going to try next. Last night, she dined at Talula’s Garden on Washington Square and said it was the best restaurant she had ever been to.
