Kris Jenner and Bethenny Frankel reportedly have been fighting over celebritites they want to as guests on their respective talk shows.
Jenner’s talk show, titled Kris, premieres July 15 on FOX and Bethenny will air its first episode on Monday, Sept. 9 on the same network. The July 8 print edition of In Touch magazine claimed the ladies were nice to each other in the past but things are “getting ugly” leading up to the premiere of their shows, an industry insider allegedly said.
They are being competitive and “fighting over guests” because neither host wants to share who they bring onto their show, the source said.. Whoever they sign also has to agree not to do the rival’s show, Celeb Dirty Laundry reported. They are also working hard to secure for their shows big Hollywood names to help with ratings.
“Bethenny’s PR team won’t let it’s clients on Kris’ show, and Kris’ team won’t let its people on Bethenny’s show,” the insider reportedly said. “That will really limit their options.
“They’re already trying to lock in big stars for all of the fall movies and album launches. Tensions are running high.”
A promotional video for Frankel's talk show was released in May. That same month, she talked about the idea behind her show, saying no body will be off limits.
"All the content will be driven by me and people that I know," she told OK! Magazine. "Everybody is a show topic."
"I just have found as you get older, women insulate a little more because they're just so busy and have so much going on," she added. "They don't really get the chance to really sit down and talk about their marriages, their money problems, their sex problems, infidelity issues. That's what my talk show is about."
Promo clips for Jenner's show was released in June. The daily, one-hour daytime talk show will include conversations about fashion and beauty as well as lifestyle topics.
"I'm Kris Jenner, and I'm a mom with a pretty active family," she said in the videos. "When we're all just hanging out, that's my favorite time. Lots of laughs, great conversation ... and I thought, that would make for a great talk show!"
