Six-Week Test Run Will See If Bethenny Frankel Can Go From Reality 'Housewife' to Daytime Queen
She's conquered Reality TV and the celebrity-backed spirits market, but can Bethenny Frankel handle Daytime? We're about to find out. On June 11, a six-week preview of Frankel's syndicated talk show Bethenny begins airing on six Fox-owned stations.
Bethenny's trial run is slated for Fox markets in Dallas (KDWF at 1 PM), Los Angeles (KTTV 2 PM), Minneapolis (KMSP 10 AM), New York (WNYW 11 AM), Philadelphia, (11 AM) and Phoenix (KSAZ 11 AM). The weekday talk show is set to revolve around advice on healthy eating, pop culture, bargain hunting and relationshiops.
Ellen DeGeneres is serving as an executive producer, alongside the Real Housewives of New York and Bethenny Ever After personality. Should this test drive prove successful, Warner Bros. could launch Bethenny nationally for the 2013-14 TV season.
