Bethenny Frankel passed the test — the former “Real Housewives” star and Skinny Girl mogul’s talk-show tryout was a success.
“Bethenny” will be going into full national syndication, launching on Fox stations across the country in 2013.
The daily hourlong talk show, which is produced by Ellen DeGeneres’ production company, had a six-week test run over the summer on Fox stations in six major markets. With next year’s rollout, it will be seen on 17 Fox affiliates.
“This summer’s test proves Bethenny has a distinctive unique appeal that woman flock to,” said Ken Werner, president of Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, according to Entertainment Weekly. “We always believed that Bethenny had the talent, popularity and credibility with daytime viewers to become appointment television and are thrilled to be bringing her to the rest of the country.”
