News of the pickup comes after the “Real Housewives” star turned talk show host launched a successful six-week run of "Bethenny" last summer on six select FOX-owned stations.
“I am so excited for this next adventure,” Frankel said in a statement. “Hosting a talk show this summer and connecting with women every day made me realize that I have found my true passion.”
The Telepictures and Very Good Productions show, executive produced by Bethenny and Ellen DeGeneres, will debut on 17 FOX stations when it returns next year.
Telepictures President Hilary Estey McLoughlin added, “Bethenny was born to do this. She has such a distinctive point of view and is so real, honest, funny and relatable and her life and professional experience offer a great foundation for the talk show.”
TV personality Bethenny Frankel will return to FOX airwaves in 2013!
