Bethenny Frankel: I'm an entrepreneur

Bethenny Frankel considers herself to be a jack-of-all-trades.

The 41-year-old reality star turned business mogul, famous for her Skinnygirl brand, is preparing to release her first novel Skinnydipping next month.

Bethenny, who auditioned for a movie in March, has her finger in a lot of pies and is open to all opportunities.

"Everyone asks, are you the next this, are you the next that," Bethenny told the Associated Press.

"I'm the next Bethenny! I don't ever look at what anyone else is doing."

Bethenny is elated by how much attention her book is receiving and is hoping to create a franchise.

"I've been approached for the book to be a film and a television series," Bethenny explained. "My gut says it really is a film; maybe later it could be a TV series. It has the arc, the story, the characters to be a film."

Should Bethenny produce a movie on her own life, she knows exactly who to cast to play the starring role.

"When I thought about the lead character, I thought about people like Mila Kunis," Bethenny said. "Expect the unexpected. I think that Mila Kunis would be perfect."

Skinnydipping will hit shelves May 1.
