After a pilot period this summer, erstwhile Real Housewife of New York Bethenny Frankel is to get a daily talk show, Bethenny, in 2013.
Per Deadline, no launch date has been set–it could be as early as January! The show was meant to launch this fall but couldn’t get affiliates to book the program, given the crowded market for new talk shows hosted by Katie Couric, Jeff Probst, Ricki Lake, and Steve Harvey among others. But a test run this summer–during which she told celebrity guest Vanessa Williams about her own mother, a sign that Bethenny will likely focus on, well, Bethenny–went well, and perhaps some of the new talk shows will have died off by the time Bethenny‘s set to launch!
