The 43-year-old's eponymous chat show was axed after just one season earlier this year, 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, and Frankel has enlisted the help of her greatest critic - her three-year-old daughter Bryn.

She tells People, "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."
