Bethenny Frankel got a big break as a cast member on The Real Housewives of New York City. Frankel's father is famous thoroughbred race...

With a failed talk show under her belt, SkinnyGirl Bethenny Frankel will NOT be returning to The Real Housewives of New York City.

The experience, she says, was like "Vietnam War flashbacks." 

You know, the one where 58,209 Americans lost their lives? Yeah. That's what she says being on RHONY was like.

During the same interview wherein Bethenny admitted that she failed as a talk show host, she admitted that part of the reason for the show's failure was that she felt stifled on the air.

"I like to be free," she said. "I don't plan on what I'm going to say."

Judging the Vietnam War comment, that's a pretty accurate statement there Bethenny.

Bethenny Frankel has been dealt a few difficult cards in the past year or so.

She is going through a tough divorce from Jason Hoppy and her talk show just got canceled.

But the former Bravo star returned to the network that made her famous last night and told Andy Cohen that she's doing just fine, thanks.

"I am dating, and I am happy," Frankel said on Watch What Happens Live. "I'm good. I feel a little liberation, a little bit of freedom, just a little bit of not feeling so bad."

"It's been a really, really hard time."

Everyone poses in Playboy for a different reason.

Some get pressured into it by their mother (hello, Kim Kardashian), some are banging the owner (hi, Holly Madison) and some don't exactly have the talent to do much else (no offense, Denise Richards).

But the following nine stars are yet to bare their full birthdays suit for the men's magazine - and we think it's time they do so!

Because we wanna see their goods? In some cases. But in others, we sincerely think that stripping down will be good for their careers and/or their self-esteem.

So for our sake and for their sake, here's a look at some actresses, models and reality stars who should have Hugh Hefner on speed dial:

9 Stars Who Should Bare It All in Playboy
Jennifer Love Hewitt looks pretty good here, don't get us wrong. But she has no major role lined up and could give her career a major boost by just baring it all.

Jennifer Love Hewitt

1. Jennifer Love Hewitt

Jennifer Love Hewitt looks pretty good here, don't get us wrong. But she has no major role lined up and could give her career a major boost by just baring it all.


Kourtney Kardashian

2. Kourtney Kardashian

Let's face it, Kourtney Kardashian is the best looking sister. She could leap frog Kim with a Playboy spread.


Kate Upton

3. Kate Upton

Simply put, it would be the best-selling issue in Playboy history. How could Kate Upton turn that down?


Bethenny Frankel

4. Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny Frankel is all about being a strong independent woman. So what better way to prove you still have it at age 43?


Clare Crawley

5. Clare Crawley

SPOILER ALERT: Clare Crawley does not win Juan Pablo's heart on the Bachelor. She has to remain relevant somehow, doesn't she?


Demi Moore

6. Demi Moore

Oh yeah, Ashton?!? You wanna marry a young hottie? Don't forget what you're leaving behind!


Ashley Greene

7. Ashley Greene

Her career has stalled since The Twiligh Saga concluded. This would get back on (naked!) track.


Tatiana Neves

8. Tatiana Neves

See The Girl Who Banged Justin Bieber Naked? Yeah. We have a feeling that will move some copies.


Tricia Helfer

9. Tricia Helfer

Tricia Helfer has tried to jumpstart her career many times since Battlestar Galactica ended. She should just get naked.

Pssst, Bethenny Frankel: you may wanna think about investing in longer skirts.

For the second time in the past few months, the former Real Housewives of New York cast member flashed a talk show audience and gave the Internet plenty to buzz over as the result of a major wardrobe malfunction.

The first incident took place last March, as Frankel was doing push-ups on the set of Anderson.

The second one went down on Wednesday when Frankel was getting sexy dance lessons from Cheryl Burke.

As you can see, everything started out just fine...

... but not look after this basic hip shake, things turn a turn for the X-rated.

Bethenny Frankel may be jobless, yet she remains jovial.

The former reality star's talk show was canceled last week, but Bethenny took to her official website yesterday and posted a long entry that explained why this is actually a good thing.

Frankel says she's "relieved" the gabfest is over because she's a "free spirit" who felt a "bit diluted, filtered and somewhat constricted" by the format.

Bethenny Frankel now has something in common with Kris Jenner.

No, she did not help produce the Kim Kardashian sex tape.

Instead, the former reality star's talk show has been canceled, with word coming down today Telepictures Productions.

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt say their hit series The Hills was fake, which is old news by now, but they say it was worse than you even know.

The gruesome twosome visited Bethenny this week to set the record straight, with Spencer Pratt claiming he went along with the scripts for the money.

"On our show we knew the stakes. The bonuses if the ratings went up. No one forced us, but you want to be like, 'What can I do to get the ratings up?'"

"Our executive producer of The Hills wanted to have a Gossip Girl. He was not competing against reality shows, he wanted Gossip Girl, Sex in the City."

"He wanted an Emmy," Heidi Montag quipped. "Sorry, we didn't get it."

The couple says certain memorable scenes were totally faked, including when Montag told Pratt she might be pregnant, and he kicked her out of his car.

It's almost as though E!’s latest reality show #RichKids of Beverly Hills was designed to generate negative attention, and this week, Bethenny Frankel obliged.

The show, which features five kids born into insane wealth parading around the titular L.A. suburb, made its debut on Sunday and Monday to major buzz.

That buzz was not what you'd call positive, by and large, for obvious reasons, and when the five cast members stopped by Bethenny, they heard about it.

While the Rich Kids of Beverly Hills did get some support (“We can’t hate you because you were born rich”), it’s clear this show rubs most folks the wrong way.

On Bethenny, it was revealed that star Jonny Drubel thought the average household income was $100K and that the average toilet paper roll was $10.

When he tried to defend himself saying he'd have no way of knowing that fact, Frankel replied “but you wipe your ass!” and the floodgates opened.
