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


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.
