Frankel decided to quit the show for a second time. She revealed her future plans in her statement.

“I have decided to leave the Housewives franchise to explore my next chapter. 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,” she said in her statement given to People.

“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,” she added. “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.”

Frankel said she doesn’t want to live in conflict

It’s not a secret that being a housewife means you’re going to be in the middle of some drama. Frankel said she’s been enjoying taking a break from that.

“It’s not that I mind it being out there, it’s just that I don’t want to live in conflict where it’s really not necessary,” she told E! News. “And it’s a really delicate balance. I’m so grateful for the show and where I came from, it was definitely a different experience from when I started the show.”

She continued to talk about the franchise. “It’s a whole different juggernaut, a franchise now. I just think it was time. I’m a person who always knows when it’s time to leave the party and I think it was time for me,” said Frankel.

She talked about needing to regroup after the show

The entrepreneur is moving on again from reality television. She talked about what it was like to go back to just living her life.

“At the beginning, it took me a minute to regroup and feel centered,” Frankel told People. “Now, it feels very calming. There’s no conflict or drama. I’m happier overall and more balanced. It’s a healthier life with less stress, and a welcome transition.”

She is now releasing supplements through her brand, Skinnygirl. One of them is a “female intimacy” supplement, which she claims works for her.

“Let’s just say there have been no complaints,” she said when talking about her boyfriend, Paul Bernon. “He loves the idea that I’m embracing that,” she said. “That’s one thing as we get older, we don’t lose that [desire] and I think women are embracing their sexuality more and also talking more about it.'”

It sounds like Frankel is enjoying having less drama these days. She’s still busy releasing more products and plans to make new shows.
