Bethenny Frankel won’t be gracing us with her presence when the fourth season of The Real Housewives of New York City debuts.
According to Frankel she’s leaving the show because she’s sick of the drama it has brought to her life. Frankel says she wants to avoid the drama that was created with her former best friend Jill Zarin.
“Last season was scary and painful. It took all of the joy out of it,” she told Us. “My gut’s saying not to be part of this cast.”
Frankel doesn’t need the publicity, her spin-off show Bethenny Getting Married debuted with just over 2 million viewers when it arrived last June. The first season of her show saw as she married Jason Hoppy and then got ready for the arrival of her daughter Bryn.
The Real Housewives of New York City will now star Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, Alex McCord, Ramona Singer, Kelly Bensimon, and Sonja Morgan, they begin filming again on September 20th.
