LOS ANGELES, May 13, 2013 /CNW/ - CTV announced today from the L.A.
Screenings that it has acquired BETHENNY, a new, nationally syndicated daytime talk show hosted by TV
personality, four-time New York Times best-selling author, and founder of the Skinnygirl empire, Bethenny
Frankel (@Bethenny). Frankel brings her uniquely honest and playful perspective to daytime
television, real, and unfiltered, five days a week.

"Bethenny has an incredibly diverse and loyal fan base, and is an
inspiring brand herself," said Phil King, President, CTV Programming
and Sports. "Her biting one-liners and sassy advice will be a fun
addition to CTV's #1 daytime lineup."
"Hosting a talk show last summer and connecting with women every day
made me realize that I have found my true passion," said Frankel. "I am
so excited for the Fall launch and the show coming to Canada. My
heartfelt thanks go out to my dedicated fans who tuned in and helped
make this great opportunity happen."
Encouraging her audience to love and accept themselves while taking
risks to make an impact on their own lives, as well as their family,
their friends and on their communities, Bethenny orchestrates it all
while maintaining a sense of humor, candidness and distinctive voice
and point of view — always coming from a place of YES. The show will cover the topics that women care about most; from love and
relationships to celebrities and pop culture and to beauty and fitness,
all through Bethenny's own relatable personal and professional life
experiences. From fun and spontaneous celebrity interviews to
informative takeaways on health and relationship issues, BETHENNY is quickly becoming the go-to destination for women every day to learn,
laugh, feel inspired and be transformed and ultimately, in Bethenny's
words, "always go for it."

New York City. Bethenny Frankel, Ellen DeGeneres (THE ELLEN DEGENERES
