LOS ANGELES, May 13, 2013 /CNW/ - CTV announced today from the L.A. Screenings
that it has acquired BETHENNY, a new, nationally syndicated daytime talk show
hosted by TV personality, four-time New York Times best-selling author, and
founder of the Skinnygirl empire, Bethenny Frankel (@Bethenny). Frankel brings
her uniquely honest and playful perspective to daytime television, real, and
unfiltered, five days a week.

"Bethenny has an incredibly diverse and loyal fan base, and is an inspiring
brand herself," said Phil King, President, CTV Programming and Sports. "Her
biting one-liners and sassy advice will be a fun addition to CTV's #1 daytime
"Hosting a talk show last summer and connecting with women every day made me
realize that I have found my true passion," said Frankel. "I am so excited for
the Fall launch and the show coming to Canada. My heartfelt thanks go out to
my dedicated fans who tuned in and helped make this great opportunity happen."
Encouraging her audience to love and accept themselves while taking risks to
make an impact on their own lives, as well as their family, their friends and
on their communities, Bethenny orchestrates it all while maintaining a sense
of humor, candidness and distinctive voice and point of view — always coming
from a place of YES. The show will cover the topics that women care about
most; from love and relationships to celebrities and pop culture and to beauty
and fitness, all through Bethenny's own relatable personal and professional
life experiences. From fun and spontaneous celebrity interviews to informative
takeaways on health and relationship issues, BETHENNY is quickly becoming the
go-to destination for women every day to learn, laugh, feel inspired and be
transformed and ultimately, in Bethenny's words, "always go for it."
