Bethenny Frankel doesn’t think it’s likely she’ll return to “The Real Housewives of New York City” unless some changes are made.
“It’s not a cliche when I say I don’t believe in staying at a party for too long,” she tells Zap2it Thursday (June 3). “I just don’t know what else there is to do there. If I had a lesser part in it and dipped in and dipped out once in a while, maybe.
“The purpose I have on the ‘Housewives’ is to comment not because anyone tells me to, but that’s who I am. I guess, if they still need my running commentary, and I suppose the Greek chorus, perhaps I would do it. I don’t know. I mean, you’re seeing my life here [on ‘Bethenny Getting Married?’], so I don’t know what I’m doing there.
“What is there to say to Jill [Zarin]? There’s nothing to say to Jill, there’s nothing to say to Kelly [Bensimon]. She had a nervous breakdown on the show. I don’t know what there is to say.”
In comparison, Frankel is high on her new reality show spinoff, “Bethenny Getting Married?”
“[‘Real Housewives’] got heightened this season, let’s say that, and my show is so refreshing compared to that,” she adds. “I see Alex [McCord] and Ramona [Singer] on my show, which is really really nice and pleasant.”
“Bethenny Getting Married?” centers on Frankel’s personal and professional life — from her pregnancy and life with fiancee Jason Hoppy to hiring a new assistant and writing her books. The show debuts on Bravo on Thursday, June 10 at 10 p.m.
Check out Frankel’s additional thoughts on Kelly Bensimon (worse than childbirth) and Jill Zarin (not a part of her life).
