Bethenny Frankel’s executive assistant quit talk show, claimed Bethenny was ‘so mean’

Bethenny Talk Show Drama
Bethenny Frankel is gearing up for her talk show’s national premiere this September. Before that point, the team is scrambling to find a new executive assistant for the former Real Housewives star, whose first assistant quit just weeks into her tenure.

“Marilyn quit after less than a month because Bethenny was so mean to her,” a source told The New York Post of Bethenny’s first assistant. “Marilyn has a lot of experience working with celebrities and complained she had ‘never been treated this badly.'”

If that split was anywhere near as contentious as Bethenny’s on-going divorce, then we can only imagine how difficult it will be to find someone else to step into the situation…

The source added replacing the executive assistant has been a challenge.

“They have been interviewing other assistants, who had to sign nondisclosure agreements and were told not to talk to Bethenny unless she talks to them first. They have interviewed more than 40 people, but she doesn’t like anybody.”

Another source close to the show confirmed things didn’t work out between Bethenny and her first assistant, but claimed there is no behind-the-scenes drama.

“But there is absolutely no division between Bethenny and the staff on the show. For many of them it is a dream job. There’s lots of energy and excitement.”

As viewers of Bethenny Ever After may remember, her devoted assistant during the Skinny Girl boom eventually became too frazzled by her Bethenny’s demands. It’s also clear to those following Bethenny and Jason Hoppy’s divorce proceedings that Bethenny is very particular about her expectations. Then again, Bethenny’s tenacious attitude has helped her gain so much success through the years when others would have settled for less.

Do you think Bethenny is too demanding?
