Bethenny Frankel's talk show was canceled back in February, and the former Real Housewife claimed she was happy it was over, as she felt "diluted" and "constricted" by the daytime chat format.

Well, apparently she felt even more diluted and constricted by not getting a paycheck, because new reports indicate that Bethenny is in "serious talks" to join the long-running panel discussion show "The View."

"The View is looking for someone to spice up the show," a source tells VH1. "Someone with lots of opinions and a big personality and Bethenny is at the top of the list."

As an opinionated, highly vocal co-host with a reality TV background, Frankel would make an ideal replacement for former Survivor contestant Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Hasselbeck left The View last year for a gig at Fox News.

The ugliness has finally come to an end.

Following a VERY bitter custody battle between the estranged couple, Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy have settled their legal differences and will both be closely involved in daughter Bryn's life.

The case was settled today in court, though specifics are unavailable at this time.

Said Hoppy's lawyer, Bernard Clair, to People:

"My client is delighted that this custody battle has been resolved; that his co-parenting status has been acknowledged; that the parties' child will have the benefit of being raised by both parents; and most importantly, that his daughter will no longer be at the mercy of a high-profile courtroom battle."

Bethenny Frankel faces a bitter custody battle over her four-year-old daughter with ex-husband Jason Hoppy, who she says is out to destroy her.

The entrepreneur and former star of The Real Housewives of New York City wants primary custody of Bryn, while estranged husband Hoppy wants joint custody.

In court Wednesday, the already public breakup took an uglier turn, with Frankel recounting Hoppy's alleged words to her after she filed for divorce.

"He said, 'I'm going to destroy you. I'm going to have you and your publicist crying and crumbling in a corner.'" Frankel, 43, testified before breaking into tears.

"'Now you're going to see what I was like on the basketball court,'" "He said, 'You don't know what it's like to have a family, you'll never have a family. Let's go baby.' "

The two sides dispute who is the better parent, with Frankel and Hoppy accusing the other of an alleged thirst for fame and chronicling its adverse impact on Bryn.

"Bethenny Frankel's priority is Bethenny Frankel," Hoppy's lawyer Bernard Clair told the judge. "In pursuit of career success, she has used the child as a prop."

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:

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.

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...
