This season of The Real Housewives of New York City featured the return of fan-favorite Bethenny Frankel. Throughout this season’s run, the ratings have increased, and many fans have called it the best season of RHONY yet. With all the success of this season, does Bethenny want to come back again?
During an interview with E! News, Bethenny was asked whether or not she would like to return for season eight.
“I might be willing to come back,” Bethenny said. “I will only do it if I can do it if I can give it my all. So, I have to decide what I’m doing. I have a lot of different things going on and I really want to make sure I could commit in the same way.”
Even though Bethenny’s return can be seen as a success, it did not come at an easy price for the Skinnygirl creator. She was involved in a majority of the fights this season and frequently feuded with Heather Thomson and Sonja Morgan, but her biggest fight may have been with Ramona Singer. Bethenny calls this fight pure comedy.
“But again, it’s pure comedy,” Bethenny said on her fight with Ramona. “Because Ramona could just walk through the streets with me saying to her, ‘You’ve taken two dresses,’ and she can just laugh about it cause it did happen.”
Upon Bethenny’s return, rumors were circulating that she had control over how she would appear on the show and what events she would film. Bethenny is denying those rumors once and for all.
“And just to dispel anything, the fact that anyone ever thought that I had any sort of editing approval or producing power is hilarious,” Bethenny explained. “I came off like the biggest bitch half the season. It’s not like I called Andy [Cohen] and said, ‘Hi, can I look like Joan Collins in Dynasty, please, this season? I’d like to look like a real royal bitch, that’s what I’m going for. Really good for business.'”
