Bethenny Frankel may be leaving the Real Housewives of New York but that is not to say she’s also giving up her hustle. The star has some big plans and is ready to pursue brand new ‘avenues.’
As fans know, Bethenny took everyone by surprise when she announced her departure from RHONY.
However, just because she’s quitting her job, that doesn’t mean she is going to have a lot of free time.
One insider tells HollywoodLife that ‘Her priority is being a role model for her daughter [Bryn Hoppy, 9], continuing her philanthropy [the disaster relief initiative bstrong] and really diving into the projects she is currently producing, which illustrate a different conversation for women and which highlight a different aspect of her career than Housewives.’
Indeed, Frankel is not planning on quitting TV for good.
In fact, she signed a ‘multi-year’ deal with MGM Television and Mark Burnett in order to generate some ‘unscripted TV projects.’
So what will those shows be about? The insider dished that ‘She would love to focus on projects that really focus on her life as a successful entrepreneur and the struggles that that entails. is looking forward to having a new and different conversation with women to help them reach their potential.’
Since she has a new vision for what it means to be a Television personality, Bethenny knew it was the time to end this RHONY chapter and start anew with other projects that better fit that image.
‘She has other avenues of entertainment to pursue and other places where she wants to focus her time on camera. She has grown,’ the source went on to explain to the news outlet.
