Bethenny Frankel continues to carry out public autopsies of her time on “The Actual Housewives of New York,” this week telling Paris Hilton that “It grew to become not who I really was anymore … it’s simply not what I wished to be doing anymore.”
Frankel delved a bit deeper after that confusingly-tensed phrase, telling Hilton — on the newest “That is Paris” podcast — that “I didn’t need to be arguing about issues that didn’t really matter anymore. It’s modified. I was there to start with when it was one thing that none of us really even knew what it was.
“And now it’s one thing that … individuals have a preconceived notion about it and so they know what’s going to occur.”
“I imply, what number of charity occasions can we go to?” she continued. “What number of pals can we not help on holidays and the way a lot drama will we need to keep away from after which go proper into the drama on the holiday. So … the time had come.”
Frankel says that she joined the present as a result of she was “broke and didn’t have something to lose” and was provided sufficient dough by Bravo to return for the seventh season of “RHONY” after briefly exiting in 2013.
Journey again to the halcyon days of 2019 with us as we revisit our protection of Frankel’s exit from the present. She already had “one foot out the door” as negotiations for her ninth season kicked off with Bravo, a supply informed us in August 2019, and tossed out a quantity to Bravo, seeing in the event that they’d chew.
They didn’t, and Frankel subsequently introduced her departure in a press release to Selection so rapidly that just a few of the present’s producers discovered about it first on social media.
Frankel, our supply mentioned, “was assured there have been choices on the market for her. She’s completely happy in her private life with [real estate exec and film producer] Paul Bernon,” to whom she bought engaged in March — with a $1 million ring.
And hey, possibly her burgeoning stand-up comedy profession will take off.
