Bethenny Frankel enjoys hotel bathroom Jacuzzi orgasms and likes sex in the morning rather than at night because it's hard for her to sleep afterward.

So learned viewers of Monday's premiere episode of "Bethenny," the former "Real Housewives of New York" cast member's new talk show, which airs at 11 a.m. weekdays on Fox 29.

"It's what women talk about. If it's over the top, then I'm over the top. That's what I talk about with my girlfriends," Frankel told us yesterday at the Bala Cynwyd offices of 95.7 BEN-FM, where she appeared on Marilyn Russell's morning show after co-anchoring a portion of Fox 29's "Good Day Philadelphia" with Mike Jerrick.

Frankel, who parlayed her "Real Housewives" popularity into two Bravo reality shows — "Bethenny Getting Married" and "Bethenny Ever After" — says she's not sure if those shows will continue since her primary focus now is on the talk show.

Strangely, Frankel claims that she never watched "Oprah" or any other female-hosted daytime talk shows. For someone who hasn't been inspired by any other hosts, however, she seems to just know what she wants. "This show is uniquely me. I wouldn't know what any other show hasdone, 'cause I haven't watched them," Frankel said.

Known for her Skinnygirl cocktails and wines and cookbooks, Frankel says she plans to incorporate cooking into her talk show but not to rely on those segments. Meanwhile, the former personal chef says Philadelphia is a great food town. On Monday, she dined at Talula's Garden on Washington Square and fondly recalled a meal at Route 6 her last time in town.
