ABC is airing two back-to-back Shark Tank episodes on November 5. The first features guest shark Bethenny Frankel, the straight-shooting star of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City, and founder and CEO of Skinnygirl. Frankel launched her low-in-calories, ready-to-drink cocktail company in 2011 after the success of her New York Times bestselling books including her first, Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting (2009). In 2011, Frankel’s Skinnygirl brand was sold to Fortune Brands Beam Global (now a company of Suntory) for an estimated $100 million. In other words, Bethenny Frankel has been just killing it with branding and marketing for a decade, and now she’s a Shark.
The Skinnygirl brand has expanded its product line to include everything from salad dressing and truffles to popcorn and lunch meat. Find out where Skinnygirl products are sold near you by using the product locator on the website. Many Skinnygirl products are on sale on Amazon, too. Shark Tank airs Sundays at 9pm on ABC.
