Julie Chen, Bethenny Frankel shooting a pilot for CBS’ The View for moms
Two reality stars from very different shows, Big Brother host Julie Chen and departing Real Housewives cast member Bethenny Frankel, will team up as panelists on the pilot episode of a new CBS daytime talk show that’s like The View for mothers.
“It’s a daytime panel show to take on ‘The View,’ targeted at women with children and hosted by celebrities, journalists and regular moms. A pilot will be shot in early May,” a CBS source (read: publicist; what normal person would describe moms as “regular”?) told the New York Post.
Julie recently had a baby and Bethenny is expecting her first child this summer; they’d be joined by Lisa Rinna and Sara Gilbert.
