Rumors are running wild that Bethenny Frankel is leaving the Real Housewives of New York. Inside sources claim the Skinnygirl founder is done with the drama and will not be participating in Season 11. But a source close to Frankel says the rumors are not true and that Frankel has already signed a contract for next year.
One source claims that Frankel is tired of stirring up drama and constantly coming up with storylines. Although she has spent 10 years on the show, she is finally ready to call it quits and move on to the next chapter in her life.
The source says that Frankel’s decision to leave is directly related to the death of her former boyfriend, Dennis Shields, who tragically passed away this past summer.

“She’s sick, absolutely sick of spending hours thinking up things to say to upstage other cast members… And of rehearsing nasty ‘zingers,’” the source revealed.
In light of the rumors, a source close to Frankel told All About The Real Housewives that she is not quitting the show. The insider dismissed the exit rumors and revealed that Frankel has signed a contract for Season 11, which has already started production.
Frankel has not confirmed or denied the reports, but it sounds like she is on board for at least one more year.
“Bethenny is signed on for next season,” the insider dished.
While Frankel is set to return, Carole Radziwill has no regrets about leaving RHONY after Season 10. The former RHONY star was just spotted at a fashion show in New York with her good friend Rori Sassoon and had a blast at the show.
The appearance comes weeks after Radziwill openly criticized Bravo producers for lying about text messages between her and Frankel last season.
As fans will recall, Frankel and Radziwill had a huge falling out in Season 10, which contributed to the latter’s exit from the show.
Carole Radziwill has not commented on the rumors surrounding Bethenny Frankel’s future on the Real Housewives of New York.
