Bethenny Frankel is leaving the Real Housewives of New York and it sounds like her co-stars are just as shocked as the show’s fans! The announcement came out of nowhere, taking everyone by surprise.
No one saw this coming, sources say!
This means that the other RHONY ladies as shocked as they can be, especially since they learned about it from the press, just like everybody else.
One source told ET that the whole thing was just ‘blindsiding!’
The same outlet also confirmed that the reality TV star and founder of Skinnygirl is no longer going to be part of RHONY’s cast.
Of course, Frankel also decided to say her goodbyes to fans on social media via an exit confirmation post of her own.
She did not forget to thank them for ‘sticking with [her] through everything.’

I wanted to take a moment to write a personal note to you. I am so grateful to you for sticking with me through everything. You started this journey with me in my tiny apartment in my late 30s, wondering what would happen to me. I was broke, single, had no family and no idea what the future held. I had big dreams and I never stopped, but I honestly didn’t know if I would ever get here. You helped me to get here. I would read your letters and messages and grow from your struggles. You would give me your honest opinion about my products and projects and helpful advice about divorce, relationships, motherhood, miscarriages, health, and surviving the death of a loved one and almost my own. You have shared your ideas with me and I have been inspired by and learned from you. I am fortunate to have created a business and career that some people only dream of. I had a beautiful baby girl who is now 9 years old, and she has changed me as a human being. I was able to give back and help people all over the world who have been hit with the worst of unforeseen circumstances, which we will all continue together. GO for it. Whatever it is. Reach for your dreams in life and love and make the impossible happen, because it can happen and it WILL happen. Come from a place of yes and it’s yours for the taking. Thank you so much for your love and support. And stay tuned, you haven’t seen the last of me. There are many amazing things to come. I love you all and am so lucky to have you in my life! PS: New York City is still my playground. . ♥️xo♥️ . B
She went on: ‘You started this journey with me in my tiny apartment in my late 30s, wondering what would happen to me. I was broke, single, had no family and no idea what the future held. I had big dreams and I never stopped, but I honestly didn’t know if I would ever get here. You helped me to get here.’
Furthermore, Barbara Kavovit, a new member of the cast, also reacted to the news, telling ET that ‘Bethenny played such a huge role on RHONY over the years and I’m sad to see her leave the show. That being said, she excels at all that she does and I’m excited to see what the future holds for her.’
As fans remember, Bethenny was part of the show since season one, up until the third season in 2010.
In 2015, however, she rejoined the cast and now she’s leaving again. Do you think this time around it’s for good?
