Earlier this year, Bethenny Frankel claimed she has earned over $120 million since she debuted as a Real Housewife on Bravo.

Turns out, she may need every last dime of that fortune.

According to E! News, the reality star is being sued by her former management company, Raw Talent Inc., for non-payment of commission. The firm is asking for $12 million because Frankel "willfully and knowingly fleeced" it out of allegedly earned funds. It's also demanding $100 million in punitive damages.

In August of 2008, Bethenny went to Raw Talent for help developing and marketing her Skinnygirl cocktail line. The lawsuit alleges she agreed to pay the company a 10 percent commission from profits made off that line - but never shelled out anything after it was sold for nine figures.

No response to the suit yet from Frankel's side, whose life might not be so good if she's forced to pay up.

Bethenny Frankel is taking over the entertainment world.

Bravo has already renewed her reality show for a third season; earlier this week, we learned that the company behind Ellen and Lopez Tonight is developing a talk show for the former Real Housewife and now comes this:

For the second week in a row, Frankel has earned the number-five slot on The New York Times' Best-Seller list for a "A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out of Life." The self-help memoir is billed as "empowering journey" on Amazon.

Champagne, a dog and a daughter. Life is good for Bethenny Frankel.

Bethenny's life has been a struggle, as the star is happy to blab about to all media outlets.

She has overcome an eating disorder and an abusive childhood, although her mom claims the latter is a lie. Still, there's no debating the success she's somehow found ever since stepping out on her own. Seriously, how adorable is that baby girl?!?

She struggled with her weight. She says her childhood was defined by alcohol, violence and eating disorders. She brought cameras into her therapy sessions.

As a result of the latter decision, Bravo viewers watched Bethenny Frankel break down on Sunday night, crying about her upbringing and the "f-cking crazy" experiences she went through growing up.

"It didn't feel that crazy then," she said on the show. "It really didn't."

But Bethenny now understands how the past has shaped her present. Watch her open up about both in the clip below.

Bethenny Frankel is more than just a motivational speaker. She's also a best-selling author.

Seriously, both those facts are, astoundingly, true.

The reality star has announced plans for yet another memoir, this one sounding even more inspiring than her past efforts. This is what Frankel had to brag say about the upcoming book:

"It's called A Place Of Yes and it's about getting what you want out of your life. It's about my experiences and how I handled them, like how people told me my first book would fail and it was a NYT bestseller for five months."

It looks like Teresa Giudice isn't the only one trying to capitalize on the desperate ignorance of Bravo viewers who think a Real Housewives cast member can offer anything remotely useful.

Bethenny Frankel will soon embark on a speaking tour that is being billed as "an evening of sass and fabulous fun." For a price, of course.

Tickets for Frankel's event will cost up to $75, but can you really put a cost on hearing Bethenney Frankel "dish on life, work and her passion for living healthy?"

We hope you can, America. We really hope you can. Keep reading to find out when Frankel will be in your area.

She's the woman being Naturally Thin diet books, but Bethenny Frankel admits in the latest issue of Redbook that there was nothing natural about her past eating habits.

"I used to get drunk and binge on everything in the deli, and then do a juice fast or starve, then do it all over again," she says.

However, the reality star's 2009 pregnancy changed her focus for the better.

"Most people treat pregnancy like the big binge, and then they can't take the excess weight off so they go on a crash diet," she explained. "I didn't listen to anyone; I knew I was going to do it my way."

Bethenny Frankel may be a liar, but we'd all agree we wish nothing but the best for her daughter.

That's why we're so happy to hear from the reality star that Bryn Casey is doing well, despite being born prematurely.

Tiger and Charlie Woods

"I was worried," said Frankel to Life & Style of her child's birth weight, four pounds, 12 ounces. "I thought I'd bump her into something and it would be over."

Bryan is now five months old and weighs nearly 11 pounds.

"She's durable," Bethenny gushes. "She's not a teeny doll! She's really cute!"

You don't need to tell us that, B Frank. We have eyes - and we're so glad mother and daughter are happy and healthy.

Bethenny Frankel has described her childhood as marred by alcohol, violence and eating disorders. She's uses this background to garner sympathy from the public.

There's just one problem, according to the reality TV star's mother: most of it isn't true.

Beth Frankel

In an interview with Radar Online, Bernadette Birk says: "She did not come from a broken home  and her father did not leave her at four years old. I left her father when she was two years old and he did not support us with one penny, no alimony."

Birk admits to being "sick" over Bethenny's lies and adds:

Ashley Greene stars in Breaking Dawn, while Bethenny Frankel is up at dawn every morning to feed her baby daughter.

Okay. We give up. These two celebrities have very little in common, except for this: both walked the white carpet at last night's MTV Video Music Awards.

Greene looked unusually perturbed to be there, while Frankel posed with a big smile on her face, likely wondering: What the heck did I do to earn a spot on this guest list?!? Choose between the pair below:
