Bethenny Frankel lands children's book deal

TV star Bethenny Frankel is moving on from her canceled talk show by penning a children's book.

The 43 year old's eponymous chat show was axed after just one season earlier this year (14), but the outspoken star is refusing to be held back and has landed a new publishing deal.

The book will be called Cookie and Peanut and is due out in September (14), and Frankel has enlisted the help of her greatest critic - her three-year-old daughter Bryn.

She says, "She's the Peanut and my dog's the Cookie. I'm reading her the book, and she's kind of helping me with the story. She likes it - it's really cute and she loves a good children's book."

The former Real Housewives of New York star has already enjoyed publishing success with her bestseller Naturally Thin: Unleash Your Skinnygirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting.
