Bethenny Frankel may be one of the original NY housewives; however is she now embarrassed to be part of the show? Bethenny has left the hit show before and now that she appears to be distancing herself from her co-stars it seems likely that she may leaving for good this time.
In a recent interview, Bethenny stated: “I’ve been definitely distancing myself from the show this summer,” Frankel admitted. “It was a long year – it’s definitely work. I’m glad that the audience is enjoying it, but I’ve left it behind.”
Bethenny was also livid that her boyfriend (who did not appear on the show) was brought up and her integrity questioned at the reunion. In what seemed like a pre-planned moment Bethenny also called her boyfriend’s daughter to clear her name from Luann’s accusations:
“It was very, very negative and I didn’t enjoy it at all. Something very dramatic happened … that questioned my integrity. If someone questions my business or my integrity I take it really seriously — I don’t just gloss over it. So I think that maybe the fun and light Bethenny that people expect, with the quips and the comebacks weren’t there.”
Bethenny also hinted that she felt Bravo crossed the line at some points which may be the reason for her wanting to distance herself and possibly prevent her from returning:
“You have 50 percent of the cast that has a whole taboo, police line, ‘do not cross’ section of their life that is not discussed on camera and never has been. For legal issues and liability issues, Bravo doesn’t need to bring it up and it’s a difficult line to ride, and that may be why I don’t come back.”
Other than Carole, Bethenny doesn’t have a lot of friends on the show as Sonja, Luann, Jules and sometimes Dorinda got into it with Bethenny this season. Her relationship with Ramona is also rocky at best. Bethenny also stated that she wouldn’t bring boyfriend Dennis Shields to film as a public romance turned out to be the kiss of death with Jason Hoppy.
What did you think of Bethenny this season? Do you think she should come back or is it time to move on for good?
