Bethenny and Fredrik is a reality TV series on the Bravo network. The show follows reality TV icons Bethenny Frankel and Fredrik Eklund as they join forces to become real estate partners. The show follows the two successful business moguls as they purchase and renovate high-end properties in the New York area. Both Bethenny and Fredrik are at the top of their game in their respective fields, but can they make a business partnership (and a reality TV show) work?
This series is somewhat unique in the Bravo universe, as it is actually a spinoff from two shows. Bethenny Frankel is one of the original cast members on The Real Housewives of New York City. In addition, she founded the Skinnygirl line of cocktails and lifestyle brands. With two superstars in one show, it initially seemed that Bravo had another hit on its hands. However, most of the episodes are nothing more than uncomfortable conversations, bickering, and unhealthy competition.
Fredrik Eklund is one of the original members of Million Dollar Listing New York. Year after year, Fredrik ranks as one of the top real estate brokers in New York City.
Following is a list of the primary cast members for the show:
- Bethenny Frankel
- Fredrik Eklund
