Bethenny Frankel is one busy housewife. She's pregnant, about to walk down the aisle and is returning to The Real Housewives of New York City for its third season. On top of that, she's also getting her own show entitled Bethenny's Getting Married? on Bravo. As expected, the new reality series will document the Real Housewives star as she juggles her career with her wedding and pregnancy. 

Last summer, Frankel reportedly got engaged to boyfriend Jason Hoppy, whom she began dating in December 2008.  But what was supposedly good news allegedly turned out to be a big PR stunt. At the time, a rep for Frankel did not respond for comment though many news outlets continued to report on the "fake engagement." According to People, Frankel and Hoppy got engaged last October 8, following an 11-month courtship.

The couple plans to marry before the baby's birth but has not announced a wedding date yet.

This really shouldn't come as a surprise to Frankel's fans. She's been rumored to star on another Bravo series since last year though nothing was made official until now. At the time the rumors broke, it also wasn't clear what kind of show she'd be working on, whether it was a variety series, a cooking show or a docu-drama.

According to Frankel, the new series will not affect her participation in The Real Housewives of New York City's upcoming third season which she's been rumored to leave. The new season, which also features LuAnn de Lesseps, Kelly Bensimon, Alex McCord, Ramona Singer and Jill Zarin, as well as newcomers Sonja Morgan and Jennifer Gilbert, is expected to premiere on March 4 on Bravo.
