Kris Jenner & Bethenny Frankel fighting over talk show guests ‘it’s getting ugly’

Kris Jenner is promoting her upcoming talk show, and she’s really hustling because she needs to prove that she isn’t just earning her living off the backs of her daughters. Kris needs to show that she can be successful in her own right, and she has some stiff competition, particularly Bethenny Frankel. Bethenny had a trial run of her talk show last summer, and she’s set to return in September. Kris’ talk show premieres July 15 for her summer trial run, and I’m hoping that’s all we’ll see of it. Bethenny of course feels the same way, and things are getting so competitive between the two shows that they’re fighting over guests:

Insiders say that behind the scenes, the gloves are off. “They’re fighting over guests,” says an industry insider. “It’s getting ugly…

“Bethenny’s PR team won’t let it’s clients on Kris’ show, and Kris’ team won’t let its people on Bethenny’s show,” said the sourec. That will really limit their options…

“They’re already trying to lock in big stars for all of the fall movies and album launches,” says a second insider. “Tensions are running high.”

[From In Touch, print edition, July 8, 2013]

You know who I would like to see trump both of these fools in the ratings? Established talk show hostess Wendy Williams. I love how Wendy dishes the dirt, talks smack, and gets her guests to really open up about the trashy things we want to know. Kris and Bethenny are both trying to squeeze extra life out of their careers while Wendy is just a natural, in my opinion. I think Kris’ show will go the way of Sharon Osbourne’s namesake talkshow, remember that? Sharon can be part of a panel but she can’t carry her own show.

In other news about Kris, during a recent appearance on Access Hollywood she admitted that her husband Bruce Jenner isn’t living with her. This is a tidbit her daughter Khloe dropped in a recent interview. Bruce is staying in their Malibu home, but Kris tried to front like he still returns to their main house at night.

Also, she wouldn’t say whether Kim and Kanye are staying at their family home with their newborn, Nori/North. Kris just said that Kim and Kanye are at a “private residence.” US Weekly’s print edition claimed that Kim, Kanye and little North West are camped out in the Kardashian mansion while their home in Bel Air is under renovation.

Did you see the recent photos and video of Kanye out with Kris? He looks more miserable than he did with Kim. Can you imagine having Kris Kardashian as your mother in-law and actually having to live with her? Maybe that happened for a few days and then Kanye threw some money at the problem and rented a “private residence” asap to get away from PMK and the jeering cameras.

Kris Jennifer is shown looking orange at the Daytime Emmy Awards on 6-16-13. Bethenny Frankel is shown at the same event. Credit:

    They’re both just awful. May they crash and burn together.

    • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

      It would be fun to see them duking it out in the wrestling rink – throw in Kate Gosselin and Goopy as well. The prize would be a brazillian wax from Giselle.

    • Cece says:

      Agree – can’t imagine anyone with any self-respect or any degree of celebrity showing up on either show. To me, it would be a sure sign that that person’s career is OVER.

    • Jessie says:

      I think the three worst women on TV are Bethenny Frankel, Kris Jenner and the gone from the spotlight Kate Gosselin. One down, two to go. I saw Bethenny’s trial show and she was so far from being a good talk show host it almost hurt to watch. Bethenny will flop. I think the only reason she keeps talking about her divorce in the press EVERY week is otherwise she would have been forgotten by now.

      • YES says:

        Yes they are the three worst women on this planet. Notice how they can’t seem to have good relationships with men? Bethenny treated Jason like crap. Same can be said for Kris and Bruce. Both Bruce and Jason can do so much better. Then there was Kate and Jon. These women are so mean spirited.

    • patti says:

      who wants to watch either one of them ? please go away….far away. i can’t stand either one of them.

  2. Becks says:

    PMK is starting to look like tan mom! Yikes.

  3. Jenn says:

    Ugh, both these women need to fade in to oblivion.

  4. grabbyhands says:

    Ahh, the spectacle of two bottom feeders duking it out….

  5. Gia says:

    Good. I hope they fight to the death and they both lose.

  6. LahdidahBaby says:

    I propose a fight to the death.

  7. Kiddo says:

    “It’s getting ugly”

    I beg to differ. With the two subjects in mind, I’d say it began ugly.

  8. Dawn says:

    Great! Here’s hoping they both crash and burn. Neither one of them has a lick of talent and don’t deserve the attention they get for being scripted reality people. In other news I guess Kris finally admits that she and Bruce live apart and if Bruce has an ounce of his male genes left he will leave her and take his underage daughters with him. The KrapTrashian/Jenner family is sick and that Bethany person…is just horrible and mean. I blame OJ, Ryan Secreast, Ray-J and Bravo for these two horrible people having any fame what-so-ever.

  9. Shelley says:

    These two women repulse me …aaargh!!

  10. Jane Q. Doe says:

    I happily third (or whatever) the fight to the death scenario. Get these nasty women off my radar.
    I’m still bitter about Bonnie Hunt’s talk show being canceled…

    • Holly says:

      OMG Jane Doe (aka, kindred spirit!), I am still bitter about BH’s show cancellation and was literally just thinking about it yesterday! I’ve never had a talk show go off the air and still miss it regularly year after year. I wish Letterman would have Bonnie on to ask her what she thinks of the two pariahs getting shows!! Plus, I still want to know what was up with the couch she had to return because of the awful chemicals (she had contacted the company and they were going to get back to her-right before the show ended). Damn, I miss her interviews and spoofs…!

      Oh, and Bethenny: take a good look at your future (PMK). Even if Bethenny doesn’t whore her kid out, they seem cut from the same cloth.

      • lisa says:

        lol i was just thinking about that !

        i love BH

      • Jane Q. Doe says:

        Y’all warm my heart! Around my house, we call her “The Wonderful Bonnie Hunt”. Her show was such a delightful oasis from all the trashy crap that’s on TV. I was just checking her Twitter today (her mama Alice has one too), and she’s just as genuine and sweet as ever, still doing fundraising for the cancer center she promoted on the show. Bonnie’s got that quick, sharp (but never mean) wit I just adore and often try to fake. LOL

        Oh the couch! That’s right – I wonder what that crazy chemical was???

  11. DanaG says:

    There can’t be too much choice I can’t imagine any self respecting A lister wanting to go on either show. I bet Kris has her kids on and that really will show she is nothing without her pimped out girls. I don’t think Kris can carry a show she likes talking about herself too much. bethany is just awful I’m surprised her show is still on. I wonder if Kris has managed to get Kanye to go on her show? He looks so thrilled to be with her. LOL

  12. Talie says:

    Wendy is the absolute best. She could do a whole show with her just talking about Hot Topics.

  13. lisa2 says:

    What happened to Kris’ nose?

    I think(sadly either way actually) that Bethenny will be more likely to get bigger named guest than Kris. Bethenny is backed by Ellen, so she has that as a pull. Ellen has had her on her show many times. Right now Kris has the lure of Kim and info about her as a selling point. I’m really over the Talk Show thing. It is getting a bit crazy. Ricki Lake’s show got cancelled. And there are perhaps 4 or 5 new shows coming. Not really interested in any of them. Besides I’m not their audience. I work during the day so I’m not home to watch.

    • Bbb1975 says:

      I want to know about her nose also.
      I think Kris’ show will debut big because of the baby pics. Then crash and burn…. Fingers crossed!
      I am home during the day and won’t watch.

    • UsedToBeLulu says:

      IKR? It looks like it is sinking into a hole. Could be her septum is damaged. I won’t speculate how THAT happened.

  14. ladybert62 says:

    Why does Jenner’s nose look so weird in that picture? Is it just the photo or is something wrong with it? It looks very crooked.

    • Poink517 says:

      No, that is actually how it always looks. I’m guessing it’s poor plastic surgery.

    • MW says:

      I saw her on TV ages ago, talking about some type of surgery she had had. Maybe her neck? she was explaining what she had told the doc she wanted done, and specifically she told him not to touch her nose. I wondered why not, at the time. Now that I look at it, it looks like maybe she has had bad surgery, the Dr. salvaged it barely, and said if she touches it again it will not be fixable. I don’t know that for a fact, but it sure looks like it.

  15. Nick says:

    As much as it pains me to say…Bethenny actually looks really good in both of those pictures. That camera angle takes away the Gollum look she is famous for.

    • Holly says:

      I was thinking the opposite but I think it’s because Naomi Watts was recently photo’d in that same dress and, of course, looked stunning. Bethenny should not invite the comparison imo!

    • patti says:

      Bethenny needs a hamburger & a shake! She’s an anorexic looking woman & she looks ill.

  16. marie says:

    I’ll save them the trouble, I won’t be watching either.

  17. Sam says:

    These two are fighting to destroy each other?

    How can we, the public, lose?

  18. Elisabeth says:

    two words ‘hunger games’

  19. Katie says:

    I am cracking up imagining these two fighting over bottom of the barrel guests. What’s the matter? Snooki and the Teen Mom girls requesting appearance fees?

    • Sue says:

      Kris will have Kim and the baby and then she is done. Bethenny will get a few housewives from Bravo and then she is done. “A” list people do not appear on “D” list shows.

  20. Dawned says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if both of these talk shows tanked. These women are just not relatable. Bethenny made a fortune because of free advertising on a reality TV show, and Kris’ wealth is because of endorsement deals the family would never have had without reality TV. Their fortunes were made without a lot of effort.

    Can someone tell me, did Bethenny win an Emmy? Say it ain’t so!

  21. DEB says:

    Both of them are already ugly, inside first and then outside. Hideous, in fact.

  22. Ruyana says:

    I have never ever watched a talk show. If I wanted to hear strangers talk, I could go to any restaurant, sit next to a crowded table and eavesdrop.

  23. Shelley says:

    Ummm. Who is PMK?

  24. GirlyGirl says:

    “getting ugly”

    with these two involved the fight starts at ‘ugly’ and will work it’s way up to ‘disgusting’

  25. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Okay, my first question is wtf did she do to her face in that first picture? That looks freaky. And she is way too old for that dress.

    I hope that show tanks faster than Kim and Kanye’s relationship.

    • @Virgilia says:

      I don’t know which one you are talking about when you say “wtf did she do to her face”? Kris’s nose is jacked up. Then there is Bethenny with the weird looking cheek fillers. And which one is too old for their dress? I am assuming you mean Bethenny because we can’t see Kris’s dress. Bethenny has the rolls of arm skin hanging out of the sleeveless dress. I am voting for a fight to the death for both.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I’m talking about PMK…the first picture with that strapless dress….scratch the “she’s too old part”…she’s too fake tanned for that dress….she looks horrible and try hard. I would be embarrassed if my mom was always trying to squeeze herself into skin tight dresses (even though she would look fabulous and I wouldn’t tell her any different), trying to look young. Bethany looks scary too. I don’t get how she’s so skinny, but her jaw is so wide.

  26. lisa says:

    the kind of D listers that will do either trainwreck will fo anything so i see no need to fight over guests

    UNLESS one of them, i guess PMK is asking people to do only one of them

  27. Madriani's Girl says:

    I would think being seen on the talk of show of either one of these women would be a career-ender for any celebrity.

    • @Madriani says:

      Yes! They will be fighting for the Bravo housewives, Pauly D, JWoww, Farrah the new porn star, dance moms, and ex bachelor and bachelorette’s.

  28. lisa says:

    if your arms are way browner than the rest of you – wear sleeves

  29. Kim says:

    Who in the world would watch either of these idiots shows?

    • @Kim says:

      The answer to your question is no one after the first couple of weeks. People will initially watch out of curiosity and then turn off. Both will fail. They are both polarizing women who are on the Kate Gosselin career path!!

  30. Mari says:

    Hmm. I’d love to see Bethenny interview Bruce while Kris interviews Bethenny’s ex. It’s already two train wrecks, why not strive for the sublime?

  31. LahdidahBaby says:

    Big news, things are getting ugly. EVERYTHING gets ugly with Bethenny. Everything.
