On the surface, Kim Kardashian and Bethenny Frankel may seem like they have nothing in common.

But like Ray J giving it to the former on video, you have to go deeper.

Neither of these celebrities contributes anything of substance to society; both have dark hair, large breasts and a penchant for nudity. Kim has appeared in Playboy and Frankel is going nude for PETA.

The two reality stars also share taste in fashion, as proven below. Compare their looks and vote in our poll:

Q: What do you get when you mix Kourtney Kardashian with Khloe Kardashian?

A: Bethenny Frankel.

The Real Housewives of New York City star confirmed her engagement to Jason Hoppy late last week, but sources reveal another piece of news regarding this couple: they're expecting a baby!

An insider told Perez Hilton that Frankel has learned from watching the publicity garnered by Kourtney for her pregnancy and Khloe for her marriage and combined the best of both worlds:

"Bethenny premeditated all of this! She got pregnant and got engaged all for her own show."

That's absolutely shocking... NOT!

Meanwhile, Frankel's castmates are happy for her and Hoppy. Said Jill Zarin:

"I only wish her the best," while Alex McCord added:

"I second Jill - we're all very happy for her."

** UPDATE: Frankel seems to shoot down this rumor with the following, mocking Tweet:

BF Twitter

** UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: Frankel has now admitted that she IS, indeed, knocked up. Congrats!

After weeks of dragging out the rumors in order to create headlines speculation, Bethenny Frankel has confirmed the worst kept secret on reality TV:

She's engaged to Jason Hoppy!

"He liked it so much he put a ring on it!" the entrepreneur, channeling her inner Beyonce told E! News.

Hoppy proposed in Frankel's apartment, presenting her with an 8-carat ring. No wonder she said yes! The pair has been dating since December 2008.

"It feels great, because I'm with the right person," said Frankel. "He's may be regretting it because it's been beyond a week and he's in panic mode – no, we're enjoying it."

The other major Real Housewives of New York City news this week was that Sonja Morgan and Jennifer Gilbert are joining the cast.

She's starred on The Real Housewives of New York City for two seasons, is signed up for a third, and will likely receive her own spin-off series.

But while it may seem as though Bethenny Frankel bows at the altar of reality TV, the socialite claims it's actually the other way around.

"I'm not really revolving my life around reality TV; reality TV is revolving its life around me," she told E! News, referencing the constant arguing on the aformentioned Bravo series:

"It's like high school. In high school, you had time to argue and that was your whole life: the drama, the mean girls and the cool girls and all that. I don't have the time for the girl trouble right now... catfighting is not what I can really spend my time doing."

Especially because she loves cats. And all animals. So much so, Frankel is set to go naked for PETA.

As for new Housewives Sonja Morgan and Jennifer Gilbert, Bethenny could only say the following about the former:

"We have a mutual friend, and I remember meeting her. So bring it on. I'm excited for new women if that's the case."

While the world awaits the Bethenny Frankel nude PETA campaign, the Real Housewives of New York City star assures fans they won't need to wait much longer see her star in her very own program.

"The spinoff news is totally true," Frankel told Us Weekly, while also shooting down talk that Sonja Morgan would replace her on the Bravo series:

"Me being replaced after five episodes is totally false. I haven't started doing the spinoff show. I have started doing Housewives."

But what about Morgan, who does look to be coming aboard the series?

"If you do the math, they replaced someone on Atlanta, and on Orange County, they only have two of the originals. But I don't know anything that you don’t know. I would imagine that you don't have to be Angela Lansbury to figure out that eventually they may replace one of us."

To our readers under the age of 75: Angela Lansbury is best known for her role as an author/detective on the former drama Murder, She Wrote.

As for Frankel's reality show, "it will be just about my entire life," the socialite says, adding that boyfriend Jason Hoppy may be involved.

"If I know Bravo and if they know me, I just think it will be the truth, which is the balance between career and relationships and all things in between. If he is part of my life, he will be part of the show."

In related news: anyone that watches this program is in serious, serious need of a life.

This much we know for certain: Bethenny Frankel is getting her own reality show.

When the Real Housewife of New York City exits her current series is another matter entirely.

According to Life & Style, there's already a deal in place that will replace Frankel with fellow socialite Sonja Morgan. While the former will still be around, the latter is rumored to make her first appearance around episode five of the season.

"It was just signed yesterday," an insider told the tabloid. "It's not pretty between Bethenny and the other cast members in the episodes that they've already taped... the show is going to explode this season!"

Rising Reality Star

Frankel, however, insists she isn't going anywhere. She Tweeted this week:

the rumors about me not being on housewives are false. you're stuck with me!!! I repeat:I'm on housewives for season 3!!

As usual, and as Bravo of course wants us to, we'll need to tune in and find out.

She's thin, she's spoiled, she's self-centered... and she'll soon be naked for the world to see.

The rumors of Bethenny Frankel nude billboards hitting cities across America are about to become a reality, as the Real Housewives of New York City star posed for PETA this week.

TV Guide Magazine was on hand for the shoot and spoke to the overly exposed D-lister afterwards. Here are excerpts from their interview:

On posing nude: That part doesn’t bother me that much... it’s like, everybody has a body, everyone’s naked... I’m not a supermodel - no one’s expecting me to be stunning.... It’s all good. I’ve always had a thick skin. I think it’s a light-hearted, fun thing for a great cause.

On involvement with PETA: I’m a huge animal lover, so it’s been a very organic process. I’m not on the top of any soapbox, but I think this is just a really interesting thing, and they came to me... They trust that I’ll be able to carry the message.

On fellow Real Housewives of New York City: I keep in touch with Jill, and I’ve touched base with LuAnn because [of her separation], just to be like, “How you doing?” I’ve kept in touch with Ramona the same way. I don’t keep in touch with Alex and Simon - I don’t particularly care for them. We’re not all best friends by any stretch of the imagination.

In other naked reality star news, Kim Zolciak went topless for the NOH8 campaign this week. Between her and Frankel's bare breasts, the unfair treatment of gays and animals will end any day now!

We never thought we'd say this, but props must be given to Bethenny Frankel.

The attention-seeking D-lister doesn't mere star on a reality show (The Real Housewives of New York City), she blogs about another reality show (The Real Housewives of Atlanta) for E! News.

In her most recent entry, Frankel comments on the ridiculous fact that Michael Lohan was involved in a restaurant scene with Kim Zolciak. She wrote:

Michael Lohan is a termite whose own daughter won't associate with him. He has leeched onto Jill Zarin and Jon Gosselin and now has moved to Atlanta. What an embarrassment. I cried when [Nene Leakes] said for him to get his ass back to Malibu. Unfortunately, he probably can't afford Malibu. His last name might as well be Ho-han. That man is a press ho, and coming from me, that's a pretty big statement.

Game. Set. Match, Bethenny Frankel!

Expect Lohan to reply with a biblical passage any moment now...

  • Lohan, Michael
  • Fired Up Frankel

For a woman obsessed with fame, Bethenny Frankel has chosen an unusual publication in which to confirm her impending marriage.

The Real Housewives of New York City star graces the cover of this month's Engagement 101 - yes, that's actually a magazine - and goes into detail about Jason Hoppy, her presumed fiance.

“He’s kind, modest and a good person who can handle my success and my crazy lifestyle,” she says in the feature article. “Plus, he’s tall and good looking.”

That's all well and good - but is Frankel actually engaged to Hoppy? Reports claim this is all just a PR stunt. However...

“It’s not fake,” says Engagement 101 editor-in-chief Severine Ferrari. “Bethenny is a genuine person and she’s seriously committed to Jason. A wedding is definitely in the works.”

In the article, Frankel states she's seeking a “six carat oval” engagement ring. Well, sure. If anyone deserves that size rock, she does.

So much for her own reality show.

Following rumors that she had signed a deal to star in a series titled Skinny and the City, only to then be threatened with a lawsuit for copyright infringement, Bethenny Frankel is going back to the show that made her (unfortunately) famous.

She'll be a cast member on season three of The Real Housewives of New York City.

“I’m definitely going to do the Housewives this season,” Frankel told People over the weekend. “It’s been great... I love it. I understand we start filming [season 3] in September.”

Frankel pretty much shot down talk of a spin-off series, choosing instead to shill for her SkinnyGirl Margarita beverage.

“The drink has 96 calories per serving, so it’s less calories than wine," she said. "The tequila already comes in the bottle and it costs $12.99. It’s being sold in restaurants as well as liquor stores."

As for her supposed engagement to Jason Hoppy? It looks like sources can make things up in order to garner publicity for their clients be wrong.

“You don’t see any ring,” Bethenny said.
