Bethenny Frankel is out.
The reality TV star has made it clear in a new statement: she's walking away from The Real Housewives of New York City.
“Last season was scary and painful," she told Us Weekly, explaining why she turned down a fourth season from Bravo. “It took all of the joy out of it.”
Bethenny getting another run on The Real Housewives of New York City? Not in the plans.
With a new husband and daughter, Frankel says she "doesn't see any reason to go back."
It probably helps that Bethenny's spin-off series, Bethenny Getting Married?, attracted more than two million viewers for its June premiere, the highest-rated debut for a new Bravo show.
A network insider hopes Frankel does return for a cameo here and there - but don't count on it, readers: "My gut’s saying not to be part of this cast," she says.
