During the Television Critics Associated Conference in Pasadena this week, the Bravo Network unveiled plans to feature Real Housewives of New York City socialite Bethenny Frankel in her own spinoff reality series, Bethenny Getting Married? The unscripted docu-soap is expected to chronicle the pregnant foodie as she plans her upcoming nups to financier fiance Jason Hoppy — and Bethenny hopes to finance her dream wedding on someone else’s dime.
Pulling a page from the Book of Star Jones, Bethenny is said to be on the hunt for sponsors to fork over cash and products for her big day. The celebutante is hoping her wedding will be the biggest “sponsored” bash to hit the Big Apple since Star married Al Reynolds in 2004.
“Bethenny has been talking to vendors all over New York about getting them to ‘sponsor’ her wedding,” says a snitch. “She wants everything and anything, and she isn’t shy….”
So far, no one’s biting.
