Bethenny Frankel's supposedly dead talk show is very much alive. According to the reality star, her daytime talk show is heading to Fox for a summer run.

"It is going to be an exciting journey and I can't wait for you to join me," Frankel wrote on her website. "Thanks for being so loyal and supportive, without you, this wouldn't be happening."

Broadcasting and Cable reports 'Bethenny' will air for six weeks on Fox stations in select areas, including New York and Los Angeles.

"A year ago, we determined there was a need in the marketplace for a show that provided daytime women the opportunity to hang out with someone who understood their needs, desires and aspirations ... a girlfriend," Ken Werner, president of Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, said in a statement. "The research is clear that Bethenny is that person. Fox shared our vision and we have partnered with them to demonstrate to the rest of the country how compelling such a show can be."

Frankel's daytime project was originally announced in August 2011 after she made several appearances on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show. DeGeneres and Frankel will serve as executive producers on the project.

Frankel can next be seen in Season 3 of her Bravo reality show, "Bethenny Ever After."
