This new mom to baby Bryn cashed in on her idea! Good for her!

This new mom means business! Reality queen Bethenny Frankel, 40, one of the original stars of The Real Housewives of New York City, has sold her “Skinnygirl” line of low-calorie cocktails to a major corporation, Fortune Brands Incorporated. Congratulations!

Although Bethenny quit Housewives (many thought because she was so sick of dealing with fellow housewife Kelly Bensimon) she went on to star in her very own shows on Bravo, Bethenny Getting Married?, and now Bethenny Ever After, currently airing on the cable network. Bethenny (she’s no dummy!) used the shows as a platform to showcase her “Skinnygirl Margaritas,” which are ready-to-drink out of the bottle (no mixing) and only 100 calories.
