Love her or hate her, Bethenny Frankel‘s been a major source of contention, controversy, and conversation since her return to the show that made her famous. So is she enjoying her renewed stint on reality TV? When asked if she would be back for another season of the Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny seems like she’s made up her mind: “You might not see me back.”
Bethenny claims the RHONY reunion was the proverbial straw that broke the Skinny Girl’s back, noting that “something very dramatic” happened during filming. Since then, Bethenny has taken a step back from her costars, and from the show.

On her radio show, B Real With Bethenny, she admitted that she’s been crying a lot this week and her emotions are raw. “I’ve had an emotional week this week. I’ve been crying more than last season on Housewives, which I dubbed the crying game. I’ve been going through a gnarly, nasty divorce that has been going on for almost four years. And there are certain things that you think of or that kind of remind you of what you’ve been going through.”
The franchise may be called Real Housewives, but in actuality a lot of these ladies are not even wives. In fact, viewers got to see many marriages fall apart in front of the reality TV cameras.
There are some former couples that were just too annoying to watch. I felt a vicarious sense of relief when these people split up. Then there were other splits that I just never saw coming and felt weirdly sad about. Sadly, there have been a lot of Real Housewives breakups over the years.
Celebrate Father’s Day by checking out this list of the hottest reality TV dads. Some of these dads are the star of the show and others are “forced” to be on reality television because of their wives (and others were on short lived reality shows). It doesn’t really matter how they got on reality TV, but they have and we are all enjoying their presence.
A lot of these dads are so scandalous that you probably question why I would even put them on this list, but I have questionable taste in men, so whatever. Then there are those obvious choices on this list that are gorgeous men with solid reputations. It’s a mixed bag to say the least, but please don’t judge me. Just have a good sense of humor and keep it going.

The Real Housewives of New York City’sresident razor-tongued go-getter, Bethenny Frankelopened up this week about the never-ending saga of her tempestuous pending divorce toJason Hoppy.

No. But it’s there. I mean, it doesn’t weigh down on me every minute of the day, it’ll flair up sometimes, like when people have arthritis or something, but it’s there. It’s chronic. It’s not that emotionally draining, it does come up at times; you have to really just be very zen about it. You have to just say, ‘This is all supposed to be happening, it makes me stronger.”
