Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Bethenny & Fredrik is a reality series about two friends creating a real estate partnership. There's lots of over-the-top arguments (including many bleeped curse words), and endless discussions about making money. There's the occasional crude reference, too. Social drinking (wine, sake, etc.) is sometimes visible.
Is It Any Good?
This conventional reality series relies on all the expected conflicts the Bravo unscripted franchise is known for: friendship fraught with fights. While Bethenny Frankel brings a more frugal, common-sense approach to the business, Fredrik Eklund showcases his flair for selling high-market properties. As a result, the interactions between them range from humorous to tense.
As with any flipping series, it's always fun to see the finished project. But the bickering between the two gets tiresome, as do the endless trials and tribulations that come with figuring out how to run a business together. It's fine if you like this sort of thing, but Bethenny & Fredrik doesn't offer anything new or exciting to make it worth tuning into if you're not.
Did we miss something on diversity?
