Bethenny Frankel Talk Show Fails To Find Syndication Interest
Reality star Bethenny Frankel's "advice-based" talkshow was reportedly dropped by Telepictures.
According to the New York Post, the creator of "Skinny Girl" liquor products and former cast member of "The Real Housewives of New York" taped a pilot episode that failed to find syndication support from local television stations. Telepictures (a division of Warner Brothers) has since dropped the show.
Frankel, whose syndicated talkshow aspirations received strong support from Ellen Degeneres, recently finished taping a season of Bravo's "Bethenny Ever After." The Hollywood Reporter said that Frankel was considering doing a talkshow for a cable channel.
Frankel's talkshow project with Telepictures was announced in August 2011. According to the New York Post, Frankel appeared on "The Ellen Show" a number of times to showcase her talents for giving audience members lifestyle tips, including bargain shopping hints and healthy snacking advice.
