Bethenny Frankel suffered a Valentine's Day breakup when her daytime talk show, "Bethenny," was canceled after one season.

"We are incredibly proud of the creativity, passion, and professionalism Bethenny and her staff brought to daytime each and every day and look forward to finishing out the season with more great original episodes," Telepictures Productions said in a statement, according to Us Weekly. "While we are disappointed not to be able to bring the series back for a second season, we remain convinced that Bethenny has a unique voice and that she will continue to be successful in the future."

"Bethenny" debuted in September, after a 2012 summer test run. The show, which was executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres, will continue to air new episodes through May, according to E! Online. Her show drew just 1.1 million viewers on average, ahead of only "Arsenio" and "Trisha."

"I had a blast doing this show with Telepictures," Frankel said in her own statement. "My entire staff worked so hard and made every day so much fun. I am thankful for the experience and for all of my fans who tuned in every day."

The former "Real Housewives of New York" star has other ventures. She is the founder of Skinnygirl Cocktails and has authored four self-help books. She has also appeared on "The Apprentice: Martha Stewart" and was the subject of the TV shows "Bethenny Getting Married?" and "Bethenny Ever After."

Earlier this month, beverage company Beam reported that sales of Skinnygirl Cocktails, which they purchased from Frankel, had fallen 26 percent from last year. Frankel still owns a monetary stake in the product.
