Is there anything Bravo star Bethenny Frankel can’t do? The woman with the golden touch (check that — millionaire touch having sold Skinnygirl Margaritas for $120 million), bestselling author and star of Bethenny Ever After has already started filming a pilot for her advice-based talk show. Better yet, talk show host and producer Ellen DeGeneres is involved with the project!
It sounds like it was in the making since she previously told The Hollywood Reporter, “I want to be on TV in a format where I can have a longer conversation with my fans rather than 140 characters on Twitter. It probably will be a talk show.”
Ellen signed a deal with Telepictures to host a multi-year production contract. This means the comedian can develop original scripted, reality as well as cable programming for Warner Brothers TV and Warner Horizon. Actually, she and Bethenny dished about it on an appearance on Ellen. Bethenny chatted about how people close to her are used to her quirky and sometimes over-the-top ways.
Ellen responded, “I’m working with you now.” She joked, “So now I’m questioning it.”
The show’s format will have multiple segments produced and some of them haven’t been taped yet. If it gets picked up it will probably be filmed in NYC.
