Reality TV veteran and talk show host Bethenny Frankel is coming to QVC.
Frankel, who recently announced that she and her husband were getting a divorce, is scheduled to appear on QVC Jan. 12 to offer a special configuration of products from her Skinnygirl Daily line, the home shopping network said Wednesday.
We had never heard of this nutrition line, although we have a bottle of Frankel’s Skinnygirl margaritas in our fridge.
“Designed to make health and wellness more accessible and easy for women on-the-go, the Skinnygirl Daily Cleanse and Restore Kit with Snack Bars (QVC Item #A232801) is a collection of the line’s most popular products,” the press release said.
And there was a canned statement from Frankel, as well.
“I developed Skinnygirl Daily in order to cater to women who lead a busy lifestyle and may not always have the time to make the healthiest choice,” Frankel said. “I’m thrilled to be sharing these products with QVC viewers, offering them the convenience they need in order to maintain a healthy and balanced life.”
The QVC Skinnygirl Daily configuration will include the Skinnygirl Daily 30-Day Supply of Cleanse and Restore, packaged in a wooden box containing recipes, all four flavors of On-The-Go Bars and a Skinnygirl Daily exclusive “Guide to a Healthier You.”
Retailing elsewhere for $118, the package will be available to QVC viewers for about $75. That’s a lot of smackers!
“Skinnygirl Daily Cleanse and Restore is a gentle, once-a-day cleanse that contains a probiotic blend and enzymes that helps to provide balance,” QVC said.
So in other words, does it keep you regular? We could use some of that (sorry, we know, TMI).
Skinnygirl On-The-Go Bars are available in four “delectable” flavors: Banana Oatmeal Dark Chocolate; Dark Chocolate Multi-Grain Pretzel; Coco-Nut with Peanut Butter; and Greek Yogurt Blueberry Crisp.
These bars are 180 calories each, kosher and all, except for the Dark Chocolate Multi-Grain Pretzel, are formulated gluten-free.
One of our astute readers noted that a line of shapewear created by Frankel is sold by QVC, and didn’t do too well in the review department.
