It is no secret that Bethenny Frankel wants to leave her reality show behind and get a more serious show on the air. She has stated several times in interviews that she would like a talk-show where she could talk to people are everyday battles, including weight and food, which is what made her popular.
So what is happening with the talk show idea? Reality Tea explains that a pilot was indeed shot, but the reality star is having a hard time finding a network that is willing to put it into their programming. Could it be Bethenny’s abrasive and blunt attitude that is making it hard to sell? The same source explains that Bethenny Frankel had a coach teach her to soften her outspoken personality. One has to wonder if that has damaged her chances of selling the show.
However, you shouldn’t lose all hope! Bethenny Frankel apparently made the shortlist for NBC’s picks for newest talk shows for the new season, including Ricki Lake and Jeff Probst, the host of Survivor. Despite not getting picked up, NBC saw potential meaning that Bethenny just needs to find a network that wants a feisty talk show host.
Go get em’ girl!
