Bethenny Frankel


An entrepreneur, TV personality, author, and philanthropist, Bethenny Frankel is a businesswoman ahead of the curve. Most recognized as a star on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New York City,” Bethenny created the Skinnygirl brand, now a lifestyle empire, which led her to being on the cover of Forbes Magazine. Bethenny is a five-time New York Times bestselling author and runs her own TV production company. Not fulfilled by business alone, Bethenny’s life’s experiences have inspired her to help other women in crisis find their own strength and resilience with the launch of B Strong, in partnership with Dress for Success. B Strong: Find Your Yes is a crisis intervention initiative that provides real time emergency assistance to women who face crises on their road to success. Additionally, Bethenny established “B Strong: Disaster Relief” in partnership with Delivering Good, collecting aid and donations from across the country to help individuals and their families affected by the recent natural disasters impacting Texas, Florida, California and the Caribbean. As a result of Bethenny’s efforts, B Strong has marshaled over 10 million pounds of aid to date that is destined primarily for Puerto Rico. Raising approximately $1.1 million in cash cards, and collecting between $40-50 million worth of disaster relief to distribute, this has been called one of the largest privately-run humanitarian efforts in US history.
