Report: Bethenny Frankel Quit RHONY Hours After Filming For Season 12 Started Plus, If Bravo Is Scrambling To Fill Bethenny’s Spot, Which Former NY Housewife Should They Bring Back?!

It’s safe to say that Bethenny Frankel’s exit from the Real Housewives of New York rocked the Bravosphere.

The SkinnyGirl mogul announced her shocking departure late Wednesday evening in a statement to Variety. She later posted a ‘thank you’ to fans on her Instagram account.

But now we are learning a little bit more about Bethenny’s exit and it’s not good for season 12 of RHONY.

According to Brice Sander, who works for Entertainment Tonight, Bethenny quit RHONY just hours after filming for season 12 started.

“#RHONY apparently started filming hours before Bethenny dropped the bomb, and now I fear there is no game plan in place for the new season,” Brice tweeted. 
This tweet is quite alarming because it means that Bravo is going to have to scramble to find a suitable replacement for Bethenny. And let’s be honest those are some BIG Louboutins to fill.
Brice did offer Bravo a quick fix, adding, “Someone call up Kristen Taekman and Heather Holla Thomson STAT. We at least need the majority of the season six squad back together.”
I have to say I don’t hate the idea of Kristen and Heather coming back. At least we all know these women can bring the drama and still have fun together.
Fans on the other hand also suggested Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon, Carole Radziwill or even Aviva Drescher and her leg.
Either way, everyone agrees that Bravo needs to bring in a seasoned vet to fill Bethenny’s shoes because they don’t have time to get a newbie up to speed.

The Real Housewives of New York will return to Bravo for season 12 in early 2020.

Are you shocked that Bethenny quit RHONY hours after filming started? Which former Housewife would you like Bravo to bring back to fill B’s spot? Sound off below!
