Bethenny Frankel Working on Pilot for Talk Show

Taping has begun for the chatty reality star's talk show pilot, which will take her conversations with fans from Twitter to TV

Move over, Katie Couric! You're not the only one with a daytime TV show in the works. According to The Hollywood Reporter, reality star Bethenny Frankel is in the midst of filming the pilot for her own, advice-based talk show with Telepictures (a division of Warner Brothers).

And Ellen DeGeneres (whose talk show is also with Telepictures) is involved with the production!

So what does a talk show helmed by the former Real Housewives of New York star look like? Based on her past interviews, it will be a give-and-take dialogue with real people. "I would like a daytime talk show because my conversation with my fans right now is through social networking, and my TV show communicates what I'm doing, but it isn't really a dialogue or a conversation," she told PopEater in February.

And in this clip from Frankel's recent audience Q&A on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, we can see the sort of advice that the 40-year-old star might dispense. In other words, she'll be helping people figure out ways to fit in more "nookie-nookie" in their lives. (Her expression, not ours!)

Frankel's certainly on a roll. Her Housewives' spin-off, Bethenny Ever After, has been picked up for a third season, too. The Real Housewives of New York may not need her, but it seems she doesn't need them, either.
