Bethenny Frankel has no intentions of returning to ‘RHONY’

Frankel is still adored by audiences for being a housewife on the hit Bravo franchise. The entrepreneur was an OG that blossomed thanks to her larger-than-life personality. Fans love that Frankel is a straight shooter and doesn’t dance around the issues. Following her second departure from RHONY after season 11, she has been asked numerous times if she would return.

“I don’t really believe in going backwards, I don’t want to go back on Housewives. It’s not where I am right now,” she told Extra in March 2021. “I respect that I came from there… I’m moving forward. I’m launching my own show on HBO MAX, The Big Shot with Bethenny, and my podcast Just B with Bethenny has a big announcement coming this week.”

At the time of her departure, Frankel said that it was something her gut telling her that she should leave the show and looking ahead in her future.

Bethenny Frankel ‘left a big financial paycheck’

Back in October 2020, Frankel echoed a similar sentiment when she made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres show.

“Umm, without being disrespectful to where I came from,” Frankel replied. “I’m in a different place now, and I think that the opportunities that I’m getting and some of the interviews, for example, might not have happened if I was still on that show.”

Although Frankel said she “left a big financial paycheck” as a housewife, she “knew that something amazing was going to happen and that the journey was just going to take me in a great place.”

From the reception fans have been giving The Big Shot, it looks like Frankel is going to be just fine. Positive remarks to the trailer have inundated social media making everyone excited to tune in to the first episode.
