Bethenny Frankel's not too keen on a reality show for Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston.

The Bethenny Getting Married? and former Real Housewives star doesn't think the politico offspring and her baby daddy add up to much.

"If it was her mom getting married or remarried it would be interesting," Frankel told me yesterday from New York City, where she was promoting's National Hammock Day benefiting CHILDHELP. "If it was Sarah was raising the baby, maybe. But what's the deal with the two of them?"

"I don't know what they are and I don't even know who they are," she added. "I don't get it. And it would be too awkward to watch them in something L.A. because they don't belong there."

As for Frankel's future in reality television, she's done with Housewives, but she wouldn't mind more Getting Married. Perhaps a season centered on having a second baby with hottie hubby Jason Hoppy? "I can't have that many more because I'm not a spring chicken," said the 39-year-old Frankel, who gave birth to daughter Bryn in May. "But my husband really wants to have another one. I think maybe subconsciously because his brother passed away and he's now an only child is part of the reason he's really desperate to have another."

And if not more reality television, there are other areas of the small screen she'd like to conquer. She said there are "conversations" going on about a cooking show. Cohosting a talk show, with someone like Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity, would also be nice, she said.

"I'd like to play off someone conservative, to play off someone with a different audience who has a different viewpoint," she said. "I've been on Hannity's show before. I bust on him and we have a good time."

But for now, besides baby Bryn and her hubby, the most important thing on Frankel's mind is her Skinny Girl Margarita business. "I can't keep it on the damn shelves," she said. "It's a big problem. I can't keep the supply up with the demand." Even so, she said, "We have a Skinny Girl Mojito coming out and Sangria and a Vodka Lemonade, too."

She's still surprised by her success—sort of. "I thought I was destined for something special, but I certainly didn't know it could be like this," she said. "It's very surreal."
