Bethenny Frankel's rumored return to The Real Housewives of New York City has been confirmed, with the star saying she's both excited and nervous for it.
The straight-talking, business-savvy brunette is returning to The Real Housewives of New York City for the show's seventh season, to air early next year.
"I'm excited," Frankel, 43, says, apparently over her Vietnam-style flashbacks. "It feels like the first season when it was fresh and new and unknown."
Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson, Kristen Taekman, LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan will be back, too, a rep for the show says.
After leaving the Housewives in 2010, Frankel initially stayed in reality TV, starring in Bravo's Bethenny Getting Married followed by Bethenny Ever After.
Both reality ventures chronicled her marriage to and increasingly rocky relationship with Jason Hoppy, with whom she later warred over child custody.
