Bethenny’s bashing continues.
Bethenny Frankel continues to bash the Real Housewives of New York nearly two years after leaving the franchise.
The Skinnygirl mogul appeared on the latest episode of Paris Hilton’s “This is Paris” podcast, where she insisted she was playing a character on RHONY and that it was not who she was “anymore.”
“It became not who I really was anymore … it’s just not what I wanted to be doing anymore,” Bethenny confessed.
She then elaborated, saying, “I didn’t want to be arguing about things that didn’t really matter anymore. It’s changed. I was there in the beginning when it was something that none of us really even knew what it was.”
“And now it’s something that … people have a preconceived notion about it, and they know what’s going to happen.”
“I mean, how many charity events can we go to?” she continued. “How many friends can we not support on vacations, and how much drama do we want to avoid and then go right into the drama on the vacation. So … the time had come.”
According to Bethenny, she initially joined RHONY because she was “broke and didn’t have anything to lose.” She then returned for season 7 after Bravo tossed a lot of money her way to come back to the show.
A source previously noted that Bethenny had “one foot out the door” during negotiations with Bravo for season 9, which is when she tossed out an out-of-this-world salary request to see if the network would bite – they didn’t. Bethenny then announced her exit from the show so quickly that producers weren’t even aware of the news until they saw it on social media. Yikes.
I LOVE Bethenny. She’s one of my favorite Housewives, but I don’t get why she continues to bash her time on Bravo – no one was forcing her to do the show. Doesn’t she have anything else to talk about?
The Real Housewives of New York City season 13 premieres May 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
