“This is absolutely not true. No regrets at all. She’s excited of what’s to come with her new endeavors,” a rep for the Skinnygirl mogul told TooFab after several media outlets reported that Bethenny was having second thoughts about leaving the Bravo show.
“I’m really excited because to leave something, you have to jump to fly, so I just made a decision and I made a good decision. I’m just focusing on the future and also spending more downtime for myself, looking at different properties, just breathing. I’m exhaling for the first time in a really long time. I had a really difficult year, and so I’m just exhaling for the first time in a while,” Bethenny explained.
She also revealed that her decision to quit RHONY came very organically, explaining, “I was planning to just breathe, but it was a chapter ending. It’s very symbolic and poetic, but it really was a chapter ending, and it does feel like a completely clean slate, a new chapter. And I like the way it feels in many ways: in my family, in my humanitarian work, in my business, in my personal life, in my relationship, with everything, so it really does affect everything.”
In August 2019, Bethenny rocked the Bravoverse when she announced her departure from RHONY out of nowhere.
“I have decided to leave the ‘Housewives’ franchise to explore my next chapter,” Bethenny said in a statement to Variety. “It’s time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy and my production partnership with Mark Burnett, producing and starring in shows which represent a shift in the conversation for women. With the changes in modern culture, I want to highlight the strength, confidence and unstoppable power that women have. My experience at Bravo has been an incredibly magical ride. I am so grateful to them for highlighting my entrepreneurialism and allowing me to pave the way for many women to achieve their goals. I am excited for my future. The best is yet to come.”
Days after her departure, Bethenny got emotional in a post on her Instagram stories. The SkinnyGirl mogul explained her decision to leave RHONY and thanked fans for their support. She also made it known that she’s “rooting” for her former co-stars as they head into a new season.
