Bethenny Frankel kicked off her career as a talk show host by rambling on about her marriage, slamming the media for divorce rumors she clearly planted herself.

Depressingly, however, the results have been encouraging, as ratings for Bethenny were strong after one week on the air.

But Wendy Williams, who has somehow filmed over 500 episodes of her talk show, told Celebuzz that her new rival better be careful with what she says on air.

"She should keep her private life private," Williams warned, lest she "hurt her loved ones."

In February, Bethenny Frankel admitted that she suffered a miscarriage at some point in 2011.

Now, in the latest issue of Glamour, the talk show host and former reality star is opening up even more about that personal tragedy.

"I felt seven months pregnant even though I was six weeks along," Frankel tells the magazine, explaining that a doctor told her she was "high risk" and that she was often bleeding and nauseous during the pregnancy.

Bethenny says she then blamed herself for the loss of the fetus.

"We met the doctor in his office, and I launched into it. 'Is it because I’m busy? My lifestyle? Is this my fault?' I asked. He replied 'You’re 41. You had bleeding. There’s nothing you could have done.'"

Frankel added that she was due to have a girl and "fell to pieces" when she heard that news, referring to her two-year old daughter and saying:

"I was picturing Bryn with a little sister. Two little girls in rain boots."

In a ridiculously contrived set-up that would make even Kim Kardashian blush, Bethenny Frankel has shot down talk of a divorce from Jason Hoppy.

The reality star does so in a just-released clip from her talk show, which debuts on June 11 and which features the former reality star sitting around with guests Kevin Nealon, D.L. Hughley and Mike Catherwood (Note to Kevin Nealon, D.L. Hughley and Mike Catherwood: Fire your agents.).

Out of nowhere, and totally unexpected/unrehearsed, Catherwood addresses Bethenny and asks her about chatter that she and Hoppy are over.

With divorce and infidelity rumors flying around Bethenny Frankel, the reality star was asked on Twitter yesterday about her marriage to Jason Hoppy. Her PR-trained response?

"We're going to talk about everything on my show! June 11 on Fox Broadcasting."

She's good, people. The talk show will be produced by Ellen DeGeneres, though Frankel said on a Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance this week that "it's going to be very different than her show... she keeps it pretty clean. I have a mouth for nighttime."

Continuing to tease a program that is bound to be canceled in a matter of weeks, Frankel added:

"It will be interesting doing daytime and just riding the line. I'm going to cross the line. Let's see how far we can go with this thing."

Watch below for part two of Bethenny's interview with Kimmel.

They survived a fake adventure at sea. But can Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy survive rumors of the former's infidelity?

The latest issue of Star Magazine claims these reality stars are headed for an "imminent divorce" and Bethenny's cheating heart/crotch is the reason why. She has gotten really close with Skinnygirl business partner Matt Hesse... if you know what we mean!

An onlooker tells the tabloid that Frankel and Hesse shared a meal at Phillipe Chow's in NYC a few months ago and:

“They walked through the restaurant with his chest pressed up against her back, and she leaned back and he whispered in her ear. Then, they went up the stairs to a private dining area together, literally with their arms wrapped around each other.”

Hoppy is allegedly aware of this relationship and, the insider claims, will "call Bethenny out on her infidelity and name Matt in the papers" once he files for divorce.

This isn't the first time a tabloid has reported problems between the couple, who share a cute daughter named Bryn.

In March, sources said Hoppy stormed out of the pair's apartment and had checked in to a hotel.

Bethenny Frankel has admitted in the past that her marriage isn't perfect. (Poor Jason Hoppy and his cobweb-filled penis!)

But now In Touch Weekly is reporting the relationship is in serious trouble, with Hoppy recently storming out of the pair's New York City residence and checking in to the Cosmopolitan Hotel.

“The fighting has gotten worse,” an insider says of the reality TV-based couple, citing Frankel's obsession with her looks and her fame as a cause of the contention. “Her energy has been nervous and neurotic. He can’t take it anymore, so he’s been doing everything on his own.”

Hoppy is just telling friends he's living elsewhere temporarily, however, and referencing renovation on the tandem's $5 million apartment as the reason why.

Bethenny and Jason have a 23-month old daughter named Brynn.

You've gotta give Bethenny Frankel props for being a good sport.

The reality star, entrepreneur and possible future actress appeared on Anderson this week and was challenged by the host to a push-up contest after he said he heard that was Bethenny's frequent go-to move at parties.

The two then jumped down into position... only for Frankel's dress to ride up and for half the audience to get an unexpected few of her bare buttocks. Pretty funny stuff, and handled very well by Bethenny who stammered with excuses for a bit and then finally just asked:

How did it look?

She's already conquered the worlds of liquor and reality television. So, clearly, only one obstacle remains for Bethenny Frankel:

Hollywood!

According to an Us Weekly source, the former Real Housewife actually auditioned for Pain and Gain on February 27, an upcoming Michael Bay filmthat stars Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Ed Harris.

"Bethenny secretly read for a role in Miami, Florida, and she did a good job," an insider claims. "Although she has no formal training, she has obviously gained a lot of experience working with cameras and she was totally comfortable with what she had to read."

Bay was not present for the audition, but a second mole tells the tabloid it went very well.

"They sent her an email after and said how great she was. She doesn't know when she'll find out if she gets the part, but the audition was fabulous."

This really shouldn't come as a surprise. Frankel acted for years like everything she was saying and doing on screen was not scripted by Bravo.

The new season of Bethenny Ever After premieres tonight on Bravo and, in promotion of the event, the show's star appeared this morning on The Today Show.

And she opened up about an extremely personal topic: her recent miscarriage.

"That was a very emotional experience," Bethenny Frankel said of the tragedy that took the life of her eight-week old fetus. "Until you become a woman, you don't know the things that come with it."

Bethenny Frankel and Bryn

Might Bethenny and husband Jason Hoppy have another child, a sibling for daughter Bryn, who was born in May 2010?

"The window is closing, and it's something I'm dealing with," Frankel simply replied.

The interview was not all melancholy, however, as Bethenny also addressed the concept of Hoppy's cobweb-filled penis. Watch the exchange in its entirety below.

There may be a lot of action ahead on the new season of Bethenny Ever After  - which premieres February 20 on Bravo - but none of it will take place between the sheets.

So says the star herself in the latest issue of Life & Style, telling the tabloid her marriage is "not perfect."

Note to Bethenny: When it bed, put down the phone and pick up your husband's... nevermind.

"Jason and I are just settling into what married life really is, without the excitement of a wedding and the baby," Frankel says. "We come from totally different backgrounds, and we're going through it. I'm in therapy. I've always been good at business, but I've always struggled with relationships."

Case in point: on the premiere, viewers will listen as Frankel explains that "intimacy" between the couple is "challenging," giving us an image we now can't erase from our minds: "Jason's penis has cobwebs on it."

Enjoy quips such as this while you can, fans: the third season of Bethenny Ever After will be this show's swan song.
