Bethenny Frankel Out of ‘Real Housewives’?

Fans of Real Housewives of New York may be sad to hear that star Bethenny Frankel will reportedly not be joining the show for its upcoming season.

While rumors are swirling about Bethenny’s fate on the show, a rep tells Celebuzz that they do not have an official comment on the state of casting at this time:

We have not made any announcement about another season of [RHONY] so there is no comment at this time.

According to the Daily News, Bethenny was not asked to return for the fourth season of the hit Bravo show. Meanwhile, her co-stars Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon, LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Alex McCord, and show newbie Sonja Morgan were reportedly all offered a chance to come back. No word on which ladies will take Bravo up on their offer.

Bethenny already has her own successful spin-off on Bravo, so it is possible that the network didn’t ask her to return to RHONY because they wanted her to focus on her new solo show. The reality mommy mentioned in June that she “didn’t know” if she would return to the show since she was enjoying the success of her new spin-off.

Do you think Bethenny is really leaving RHONY or is she just getting more time for Bethenny Gets Married? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
