From Bethenny Frankel to Brandi Glanville, here are the stars and grads of Bravo's Real Housewives franchise who have jumped aboard the podcast train
Bethenny Frankel, The Real Housewives of New York
What's It Called? Just B with Bethenny Frankel
What's It About? The former Real Housewives star will be facilitating unfiltered conversations with other self-made moguls in business, lifestyle and beyond, with a focus on their unconventional journeys to success. Her guests include entrepreneur Mark Cuban, newly named Netflix CMO Bozoma Saint John, entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuck, UFC President Dana White, and Visa's North America Marketing VP Mary Anne Reilly.
"We are in a moment in time where people are afraid to express themselves and only present filtered or watered down versions of the truth," Frankel tweeted as part of a string of tweets she sent out during her podcast announcement on July 7, 2020.
"If this is what you're interested in, then this podcast is NOT for you."
Just B With Bethenny Frankel will launch in September 2020 and will be available on Apple, Spotify and other listening platforms.

The show finds Gunvalson not only dishing on all things Real Housewives, but also doling out tips about financial planning, retirement planning and insurance — something she knows a thing or two about, as the owner of Coto Insurance.
"It's exciting," Gunvalson told PEOPLE. "I do seminars all across the country speaking out about these topics. And every day, someone sends me a message asking me questions — so many, that I can't answer them all. So this allows me to magnify that conversation in a really powerful way."

Each week on Caviar Dreams on a Tuna Fish Budget, which launched in March 2020, Josephs and her co-host Lexi Barbuto sit down with trailblazers, leaders, disrupters and risk-takers to hear about their journey to success. "This is about the spirit of entrepreneurship," Josephs said in the premiere episode.

"Together, we have experienced a lot of life's up and downs, from marriage to divorce, financial struggles, kids and loved ones with cancer, legal disputes, public ridicule, false accusations, relational issues, parental issues, and lost loved ones, but through it all we have managed to survive and come out even stronger and more in love, all without ever even tying the knot," Rossi and Smiley said in a joint statement.

Along the way, King Edmonds says that the overwhelming feeling listeners will get is one of solidarity.
