Bethenny Frankel Compares The Real Housewives of New York City to Vietnam War

by at .  Updated at .

With a failed talk show under her belt, SkinnyGirl Bethenny Frankel will NOT be returning to The Real Housewives of New York City.

The experience, she says, was like "Vietnam War flashbacks." 

You know, the one where 58,209 Americans lost their lives? Yeah. That's what she says being on RHONY was like.

During the same interview wherein Bethenny admitted that she failed as a talk show host, she admitted that part of the reason for the show's failure was that she felt stifled on the air.

"I like to be free," she said. "I don't plan on what I'm going to say."

Judging the Vietnam War comment, that's a pretty accurate statement there Bethenny.

While the SkinnyGirl creator has made quite a name for herself, she said that her journey to the top of the pasta and alcohol food chain has been rife with so many disasters, so many failures, so many low points" and, she told the audience, “no amount of money can heal pain, suffering and loss.”

While a source close to Frankel says that the former RHONY star won't "stoop" to return to the series that helped launch her career, she is in talks with Bravo's Andy Cohen to come back to his cable channel in a different series.

Perhaps one where the bitter divorce in which she is currently embroiled plays out.

If you miss Bethenny Frankel on your TV, you can always catch her actual flashbacks if you watch The Real Housewives of New York City online.
