Bethenny Frankel may be leaving The Real Housewives of New York City, People reports. One of the original members of the Bravo reality show, Frankel cites her fellow cast members as the reason she may walk away. “I don’t see myself going back to The Real Housewives the way that the cast is now,” she told People.
That’s a classy way of saying she can’t stand these ladies anymore. This season left the housewives divided, with Bethenny and her former best friend Jill Zarin becoming the central conflict of the show. After countless (not count-ess) attempts at reconciliation and a (grueling) three-part reunion special, things still seemed tense between the women. Should Bravo listen to Bethenny’s request for some changes? Or is The Real Housewives of New York City better off without her? Take our poll after the jump!
Don’t worry too much, Skinny Girl fans, Frankel’s not leaving the reality TV world all together. You can currently catch her on Bravo’s Bethenny Getting Married?, which follows the weeks leading up to her wedding (to Jason Hoppy) and the birth of her daughter, Bryn. Premiering on June 10th, it was Bravo’s highest-rated series debut, attracting 2.1 million viewers. Frankel is extremely pleased with the response thus far, telling People: “[Bethenny Getting Married?] has been so well received, everyone loves it and it’s really all about me, so that takes a big weight off of my shoulders because I guess I can carry a show.”
