Bethenny Frankel has started taping a talk show that will focus on advice, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The pilot is being produced by Telepictures (the same company behind The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Anderson Cooper’s new talk show). Sources have confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that Ellen DeGeneres is on board the project. 


Frankel hinted earlier this year that she wanted to host her own talk show:


“I want to be on TV in a format where I can have a longer conversation with my fans rather than 140 characters on Twitter,” she told THR. “It probably will be a talk show.”


Frankel is no stranger to TV; The 40-year-old was the runner up on The Apprentice: Martha Stuart. She was then featured on The Real Housewives of New York for three seasons, before getting a spin-off called Bethenny Ever After.


The reality star is also a self-made millionaire: she sold her Skinnygirl drink line for a reported $120 million. She’s the author of dozens of best-selling books, including Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting and A Place of Yes: 10 Rules For Getting Everything You Want Out of Life
