Bethenny Frankel: I'm The R-rated Oprah

We here at Hollyscoop have been watching Bethenny Frankel’s new talk show, “Bethenny,” and we have to admit, it's got us talking.

[For those of you who have real jobs, let me tell you a bit about working in entertainment news. In the office, the TV is always on. Always. If the cable goes out, pallid writers start screaming at the set like it’s the closing bell of the stock exchange and millions are on the line…]

Of the show, Frankel just made a pretty seriously bold claim to In Touch, “I’m the R-rated Oprah!”

The statement is half right.

We’ve been threatening to make a drinking game out of every time the Skinnygirl Cocktails mogul/former reality TV star mentions vibrators, masturbation or bra sizes.

The problem therein would be that we would all be totally trashed before the first commercial break and all of you would be deprived of any celebrity news that goes down after 2:15 PM.

Clearly not an option.

Frankel, proud of what In Touch is calling an “unfiltered personality” claims to be “talking about what my friends are talking about every day. We aren’t talking about politics — we’re talking about dating, marriage and what men think.”

She’s right, I guess, but sort of wrong. I mean, do any of us have friendships based solely on a one-hour daily conversation about getting busy? Assuming you aren’t Carrie Bradshaw or one of her three close friends, you have to branch out at some point.

“Someone says they don’t have enough of it, and someone else says it’s boring. But the bottom line is, I’m just like many of the married women in America who watch my show. Sometimes we just want to spice it up a little bit.”

Love her or hate her, Oprah’s show ran a gamut of topics and elicited a wide range of emotions throughout each episode. And that’s what made her last for so long.

Take note Bethenny, everyone gets bored of a one trick pony, no matter how good they claim to be at having sex.
