Rumor has it Bethenny Frankel has given notice to Bravo and will be exiting the Real Housewives of New York.
Sources say the Skinny Girl mogul is done with the drama of reality TV and doesn’t plan on returning for season 11 of RHONY.
“Bethenny has spent over a decade fighting and partying on the real housewives. Everything she did was to make herself famous. She even had her wedding televised! But after the death of her boyfriend, she’s telling friends that she’s going to quit the show,” a source told Straight Shuter’s “Naughty But Nice” podcast.
“She’s sick, absolutely sick of spending hours thinking up things to say to upstage other cast members… And of rehearsing nasty ‘zingers,’” added the insider.
While Bethenny is a key part of RHONY she has secluded herself the cast over the last year.
“She doesn’t want to fight and scream and shout anymore,” said the source. “Bethenny is really over the whole process and wants to find real, not ‘reality’ happiness.”
However, RHONY insiders are convinced that Bethenny is ready to walk away from the world of reality TV.
“Bethenny will never quit that show. It is all that she has,” said an insider. “Being on TV is like oxygen to Bethenny Frankel.”
