It was a real shocker to Real Housewives of New York fans when Bethenny Frankel abruptly announced that she was leaving the show ahead of Season 12. Thankfully, RHONY newbie Leah McSweeney was there to share her shady and hilarious commentary about the boozy goings-on.
Some cast members were sad that Bethenny left the show. Luann de Lesseps and Ramona Singer were thrilled to not have to compete with Bethenny for camera time. While Bethenny said that she hasn’t watched this season of RHONY, the Skinnygirl mogul was shocked that so many fans wanted her to return.
But Bethenny is juggling a full plate at the moment. She has been on the front lines doing relief work for those affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Bethenny has a new podcast, titled Just B with Bethenny Frankel.
She is also casting for a new television show where contestants will learn about entrepreneurship from Bethenny and get a sneak peek behind the inner workings of her business and philanthropy. That concept sounds interesting.

But Bethenny is never too busy to keep it real. According to HollywoodLife, Bethenny called out Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kylie Jenner for giving her young daughter a very pricey accessory.
Kylie posted a photo of her 2-year-old daughter Stormi Webster rocking a $12 thousand dollar Hermes backpack for her first day of school. Actually, it was Stormi’s first day of home school. Wow–I would have saved the Hermes for actual in-person school, but that’s just me.

US Weekly posted the photo on their Instagram page, and Bethenny shared her thoughts. On September 30, Bethenny posted, “I never say anything about this stuff but this is the most transparent humble brag I’ve seen yet. It’s everything wrong with everything,” she commented.
The reaction to Bethenny’s remark was mixed. One fan posted with a series of clapping hand emojis. Another said, “I am so glad you made this comment! 100% agree with you.” One follower responded, “jealous much??”
On October 1, Bethenny popped over to Twitter to explain her position. (Warning-there is some rough grammar ahead.) She wrote, “I commented on @usweekly on a 12k backpack on @KylieJenner daughter. I’m no stranger to an @Hermes_Paris bag & have a daughter & luxury cars, but flaunting (under the guise of a back to school post) during a pandemic & the greatest unemployment crisis in our lifetime is a choice,” Bethenny explained.
Once again, reviews of Bethenny’s post were mixed. One fan tweeted, “Thinking Kris [Jenner] won’t be joining your podcast anytime soon.” Somehow, I think Bethenny, and her podcast, will be just fine.
