A true entrepreneur, to further build Skinnygirl Cocktails, Bethenny partnered with Beam Suntory in 2011 to grow the portfolio to include wines, flavored vodkas, and ready-to-drink cocktails. Since the launch of Skinnygirl Cocktails, she has expanded the Skinnygirl brand into a global lifestyle empire, featuring products for women that offer practical and stylish solutions to everyday problems. With the arrival of the Skinnygirl Jeanswear collection, fully embracing the Skinnygirl mission of female empowerment, we can all proudly display our inner Skinnygirl. Some of the many other Skinnygirl products include non-alcoholic beverages, microwave popcorn, candy, salad dressings, coffee, tea, liquid sweeteners, water enhancers, and shapewear.


Bethenny started her own TV production company, B Real Productions, producing two seasons of FYI’s “Food Porn,” and is a creator, producer and star of Bravo’s new real estate show, “Bethenny and Fredrik.”


She is the five-time New York Times bestselling author of  Skinnydipping, A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out Of Life; Naturally Thin: Unleash Your Skinnygirl; Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting, The Skinnygirl™ Dish: Easy Recipes for Your Naturally Thin Life, and I Suck At Relationships So You Don’t Have To. She has also authored Skinnygirl Solutions: Simple Ideas, Extraordinary Results, the children's book, Cookie Meets Peanut, and the cocktail book, Skinnygirl Cocktails.


Not fulfilled with 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 will provide real time emergency assistance to women who face crises on their road to success. Additionally, Bethenny established “B Strong / Delivering Good” in partnership with the highly respected 501C3, Delivering Good, as well as “B Strong Global Better,” collecting aid and donations from across the country to help women 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. Bethenny helped coordinate the chartering of about 54+ private planes to help deliver aid and relief to those hit hardest by the disaster. Raising approximately $1.1 million in cash cards, and collecting approximately $40-50 million worth of disaster relief to distribute, this has been called one of the largest privately run humanitarian efforts in US history.
