Say it ain’t so, Bethenny Frankel!
According to Frankel, this season of RHONY turned into an ugly and “dramatic” ordeal which culminated in an explosive reunion episode. In fact, the typically tough reality star described it as a particularly difficult taping.
Yikes! We wonder if the drama had to do with Sonja Morgan allegedly ripping off the momma’s Skinny Girl brand. Or maybe it was about Luann De Lesseps‘ questionable engagement to Tom D’Agonisto Jr.!
Speaking on the draining reunion, B.F. explained:
“It was very, very negative and I didn’t enjoy it at all. Something very dramatic happened … that questioned my integrity. If someone questions my business or my integrity I take it really seriously.”
Wow! We can’t say we blame Bethenny for taking her integrity “seriously” — she did build herself up from nothing, after all!
The 45-year-old went on to add:
“I live my life honestly. You have 50 percent of the cast that has a whole taboo, police line, ‘do not cross’ section of their life that is not discussed on camera and never has been. For legal issues and liability issues, Bravo doesn’t need to bring it up and it’s a difficult line to ride, and that may be why I don’t come back.”
Yikes! The reasoning behind the New York resident’s potential departure sounds VERY serious…
While we’d be sad to see Ms. Frankel leave the show after her celebrated return in season seven of the series, her health and happiness is what’s most important.
Luckily for the sarcastic gal, she has plenty of business ventures to keep her mind off of the pettiness:
“I’m doing what I want to do and definitely making some changes in my personal and professional life, and deciding kind of how to line up all the pieces on the board in the fall. I have a lot of different businesses and business decisions to make.”
In addition to her professional opportunities, Bethenny has been busy celebrating her divorce from Jason Hoppy and her new “freedom”:
“I am really happy that I am on the other side of it, for sure… my summer of freedom is lighting me up. I am in a really happy place.”
So, do YOU think Frankel will return to the show?
