The polls have spoken! Bethenny Frankel received 51 percent of the votes for the housewife viewers want to return the most. But were Bethenny Frankel and Andy Cohen listening? Or did they already have a plan for the former star of theReal Housewives of NYC to return to her reality TV roots?
A few nights ago, on Andy Cohen's raucous late night show Watch What Happens Live, the Skinnygirl mogul was asked about the cancellation of her daytime TV show and what was in store for her future. After accusing Andy Cohen of planning the question from a caller about returning the NYC Housewives, Bethenny gave a very bland answer about needing to take a break….
“The spinoff news is totally true, but me being replaced after five episodes is totally false,” she told Usmagazine Monday at the Los Angeles premiere of Couples Retreat. “I haven’t started doing the spinoff show. I have started doing Housewives.”
It was reported last week that Bethenny would be replaced on the show’s third season by Sonja Morgan — a real-life friend of cast member Countess LuAnn de Lesseps.
So what can fans expect from her new reality show? “It will be just about my entire life,” she said. Adding that boyfriend Jason Hopper will be a part of her show as well. “If I know Bravo and if they know me, I just think it will be the truth, which is the balance between career and relationships and all things in between. If he is part of my life, he will be part of the show.”
Surprisingly, Bethenny says she regrets her recent diss of fellow Bravo star, Rachel Zoe. “I probably wouldn’t do it again today because it was such a big ordeal. I mean, it was unsolicited. No one asked my opinion about what I thought about that.”
