EXCLUSIVE: Bethenny Livid Queen Latifah's Talk Show Has Better Ratings Than Hers!

Bethenny Frankel & Queen Latifah

Things aren’t looking good for the future of Bethenny Frankel’s talk show — especially if you’re comparing it to Queen Latifah’s! When both shows premiered last month, Queen Latifah scored a 1.4 Nielsen rating, while the former Real Housewife only nabbed 0.9.

“Bethenny is livid about Queen Latifah beating her,” a source reveals to Star. “She can’t believe this is happening. She’s holding crisis talks in order to figure out what Latifah has that she doesn’t.”

The biggest problem for the SkinnyGirl mogul, though, is that Latifah was unexpected competition. In fact, she actually assumed it was Kris Jenner who was her biggest competition, but her show got cancelled after a trial run this summer. “She had no idea that Queen Latifah would be the one to crush her,” the insider admitted.
