Bethenny Frankel's daytime talk show was previously having difficulty drumming up interest, but Fox is willing to give the former "Real Housewife" a shot.
Frankel wrote on her blog Tuesday, "The queen of too much information is coming to daytime! It is going to be an exciting journey and I can't wait for you to join me...See you all this summer on Fox!"
The New York Times adds that Frankel's daily, "girlfriend-type" talk show will be called "Bethenny," and will air on select Fox stations for six weeks in the summer in markets that will include New York and Los Angeles.
If everyone involved takes a liking to "Bethenny," then it could find its way to the daily line-up in the fall of 2013. The NYT notes that the earlier lack of interest in the daytime chat show was due to the "unusually crowded" market, which also includes talk offerings from Ricki Lake and Katie Couric.
Before "Bethenny," though, fans will see Frankel on Bravo. A third season of "Bethenny Ever After" launches February 20.
