For those of you who have been waiting with bated breath for Bethenny Frankel’s triumphant television return, the wait is over.
Although details haven’t been fully announced yet, it’s safe to say that Bethenny’s talk show got the pick up. The pick up happened after Bethenny was tested over the summer for 6 weeks in major markets. The network wanted to test these select markets to see how well the show would perform amongst an audience. It’s said that the show’s ratings were solid, or at least solid enough for a pick up.
During Frankel’s appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show, Ellen told her audience about the Real Housewives of New York star, “We are not going to give a lot of details, because we can’t, but it is safe to say she will be on television soon. The television show will be back on the air.”
On her appearance on Ellen, Frankel raved about her supporter saying, “This lady gave me a talk show,” after sipping on her own Skinny Girl tangerine vodka, toasting with Ellen to good fortune. Degeneres is said to be executive producing the talk show along with Warner Bros. Telepictures.
With the backing of talk show host queen Ellen, it seems as though Bethenny is practically untouchable. Frankel has been a force to be reckoned with so far, with being a fan favorite on Real Housewives and having a successful Skinny girl cocktail line. It’s safe to say that everything she touches turns to pure gold, including her new daytime talk show, which saw Frankel and her boisterous on-air antics.
