Bethenny Frankel has reached out to two of her former Real Housewives of New York cast mates to appear on her daytime talk show, but RadarOnline reports Jill Zarin and Alex McCord both turned her down. A booker for Bethenny’s show reached out to Alex and Jill to “explore the possibility of Jill and Alex appearing as part of a reunion from the Real Housewives of New York City Season 1 or 2,” an insider tells the site.
“Bethenny is feeling pressure from network executives because ratings from her talk show have been less than stellar. Both ladies turned down the invitation to appear on the talk show,” the source reveals. “She didn’t want to invite Jill and Alex to come on, but she really needs a ratings boost, and thought having them come on would generate a ton of publicity.”
“Bethenny was stunned that they both said no, she really thought they would agree to come on the show. Bethenny’s bosses suggested she call Jill and Alex personally, but she absolutely refused,” the source said.
