Real Housewives of New York City: Bethenny Frankel Won’t Return To Show Unless The Cast Changes

June 21, 2010 01:00 PM by Nancy Floyd


After a grueling season of Bravo‘s The Real Housewives of New York City filled with drama, fighting, and animosity, Bethenny Frankel isn’t so sure she wants to star in the reality TV show’s future seasons. With the success of her new spin-off show, Bethenny Getting Married?, the celebrity chef and new mom doesn’t plan to return to Real Housewives, especially if the cast remains the same. Keep reading for more details on Frankel’s difficult decision…

After three seasons of providing wit and color commentary on Bravo‘s The Real Housewives of New York City, Bethenny Frankel might be calling it quits. With the third season filled with drama and tension, Frankel admits she doesn’t know if she’ll return to the reality TV show next season. The only thing that might change her mind? A new cast. “I don’t see myself going back to The Real Housewives the way that the cast is now,” Frankel says.

The news shouldn’t really come as a shock to viewers, as it became increasingly obvious during season three that Bethenny isn’t crazy about the other women. She had a major falling out with former BFF, Jill Zarin, and had a blow-out of epic proportions with Kelly Bensimon. It’s certainly looking like Frankel doesn’t needs the paycheck either. Her new spin-off show, Bethenny Getting Married?, was the highest-rated premiere in Bravo’s history.

“[Bethenny Getting Married] has been so well received, everyone loves it and it’s really all about me, so that takes a big weight off of my shoulders because I guess I can carry a show,” Frankel says.“I just am so happy. I really have the best fans. They’re so interactive and they root for me. I could cry. I have the best fans. It’s all about the relationship with the fans.”

    I completely agree with Bethenny, (even though she didn’t actually mention names). I don’t want to continue to have the current RHONY cast in my home anymore either. I have no interest in watching Jill and Kelly lie more and be coddled by Bravo. Jill and Kelly got up during the reunion show saying that they couldn’t take it. It’s time for them, and all their unnecessary strife, to go!!!!!
