Bethenny Frankel's talk show to test this summer

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.

    Im sorry, I just vomited a little in my mouth. The day shes a real honest to God housewife, is the day the world ends! I take offense at her calling herself a housewife! Along with all those other "housewives"!

    She should hook up with Martha Stewart's brat daughter. Between who is hotter and who is smarter should bring a lot of cat fights. People watch that stuff.

    I really don't understand the allure around her. She really is nt an attractive woman- very harsh features that make her appear quite frigid. What exactly is she famous for?? Reality TV?? Why or why are these people even considered celebrities?? Her last show apparently was not picked up (per Wikipedia) so what makes this one more likely?

    Its annoying seeing rich b&%^ch wannabes making MORE money for doing not a darn thing.

    I think she is incredible ! She is super tallented and will make a great talk show host. Plus she can SING ! I think this show is going to be bigger than Orah.

    The show will fail because she is boring and extremely self absorbed. I honestly can't see how her husband stands her. He seems somewhat normal and she is oh so neurotic, a trait which she seems to think is cute. Jill Zarin, what have you done?
