After coming out the gate strong ratings-wise, viewership for Bethenny’s talk show is on the decline and inconsistent among the various test markets according to the Hollywood Reporter. Does that mean the show won’t get picked up for the fall? That remains to be seen, since even though the ratings are softening, they are still stiffer than that of her lead-in Wendy Williams. Though I suspect there’s some whitewash skewing in those numbers. Ever notice how the stations always run their annoying “weekly test” beep during Wendy. Coincidence or racially motivated disruption? You be the judge. Back to Bethenny.Apparently, Bethenny also had rats in her L.A. abode and cockroaches in her hotel room. Welcome to the A-List hunny.If you were curious how that major lawsuit between B and her former manager resolved, she recently settled the case. Despite her “mo’ money, mo’ problems” rhetoric over the last year, the case apparently had enough merit to withstand summary judgement. She threw some money at the problem and now this one has gone away. While she’ll probably choke writing the sizable check, she must be relieved that potentially expensive dispute is over. What is next for Bethenny? Are the rumors of another baby true? Will she and Jason make it? Will her talk show go nationwide? More specifically, is she still ascending or has she begun her descent? Just when she looks poised for a fall, she claws her way back to surer footing. Even if you hate her, you have to admit she’s a scrappy bitch.
