The Hollywood Reporter reports that Frankel started taping footage for an advice-based show earlier this month, and that she's been getting tips from Ellen DeGeneres, who is also involved in the project with Telepictures.
Frankel has long hinted that getting her own talk show -- as opposed to her Bravo reality series, 'Bethenny Ever After' -- was something she really wanted and saw in her future.
"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 toldPopEater earlier this year, adding, "Most of my business wishes come true."
According to a source close to the project, the show will feature multiple segments, many of which have yet to be taped. Should the pilot be picked up, the show will likely tape in New York, but no final decisions heve been made, the source adds.
The show would just be another line on Frankel's ever-growing resume. The former 'Real Housewives of New York City' star already built a reported $120 million empire thanks to her wildly successful SkinnyGirl drink brand, among other book and promotional deals.
