Bethenny Frankel has officially quit The Real Housewives of New York City now that she has a successful spin-off, Bethenny Getting Married, so she won’t be around to make acerbic comments about former friend Jill Zarin and frightening trainwreck Kelly Killoren Bensimon.
Bethenny told Us Weekly that “Last season was scary and painful. It took all of the joy out of it,” so she doesn’t “see any reason to go back.”
Of course, I doubt that’s what she’d be saying if Bethenny Getting Married was a flop. The magazine reports “Frankel is contractually bound to make a few appearances on RHONY next season,” but Bethenny said, “My gut’s saying not to be part of this cast.”
