This much we know for certain: Bethenny Frankel is getting her own reality show.
When the Real Housewife of New York City exits her current series is another matter entirely.
According to Life & Style, there's already a deal in place that will replace Frankel with fellow socialite Sonja Morgan. While the former will still be around, the latter is rumored to make her first appearance around episode five of the season.
"It was just signed yesterday," an insider told the tabloid. "It's not pretty between Bethenny and the other cast members in the episodes that they've already taped... the show is going to explode this season!"
Frankel, however, insists she isn't going anywhere. She Tweeted this week:
the rumors about me not being on housewives are false. you're stuck with me!!! I repeat:I'm on housewives for season 3!!
As usual, and as Bravo of course wants us to, we'll need to tune in and find out.
