Bethenny Frankel and Fredrik Eklund crack each other up!

The Skinnygirl mogul opened up to PEOPLE about her upcoming reality home design show, Bethenny & Fredrik, on Thursday at the premiere of Febreze’s Super Bowl Ad in New York City with Nick Cannon.

The Bravo show stars Frankel alongside her BFF and real estate entrepreneur Fredrik Eklund, and Frankel admitted that the side of Eklund that viewers will see on Bethenny & Fredrik is a little different than what they’re used to.

“He’s very different on the show,” Frankel said of the Million Dollar Listing New York star. “His other show is more formatted and so he’s very polished and together. On this show, he’s a complete clown, which, initially, I think he was a bit uncomfortable with . . . so he just had to fall in, which he totally did, and I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard in my life.”

The new reality show, premiering February 6, features the Real Housewives star and real estate broker together scouting, buying, and designing multimillion-dollars homes. While the pair puts in some hard work on the show, Frankel also dished that side-splitting laughter is just as prevalent as real estate.

“It’s Will & Grace with real estate as a backdrop,” Frankel told PEOPLE. “It is raucous, Dumb & Dumber, slapstick comedy that we all really need. It’s a palate cleanser, it’s just hilarious, it’s pee-your-pants funny.”

Bethenny & Fredrik premieres on Feb. 6 at 10 p.m. on Bravo.
