Sonja Morgan is on board with the potential return of Bethenny Frankel on The Real Housewives of New York City.
For weeks, rumors have been swirling, claiming Frankel would return to the Bravo series for its seventh season in 2015. Although the rumor remains unconfirmed, and as The Inquisitr revealed last week, Frankel has denied signing onto the show, Morgan recently revealed her thoughts on the possibility.
“I heard the rumors the Bethenny could be considering coming back,” Sonja Morgan revealed to Tom Murro, according to an October 8 report by Reality Tea. “Would be a breath of fresh air. I could use a good sense of humor in the bunch!”
After the recently wrapped sixth season of The Real Housewives of New York City, Aviva Drescher was let go, and LuAnn de Lesseps reclaimed her role as official housewife. Ramona Singer also saw a casting change, being demoted from official housewife to a friend of the housewives ahead of Season 7. Sonja Morgan, along with fellow housewives, Carole Radziwill, Heather Thompson, and Kristen Taekman, are expected to return for Season 7 as well.
Weeks after the show’s finale, Frankel caused a stir when she confirmed she and Real Housewives creator Andy Cohen were working together on “two different projects.” While Frankel didn’t reveal what they were working on, fans immediately speculated that she could be plotting her return.
“We always have fun together. She’s a good egg and doesn’t take herself so seriously,” Sonja Morgan explained of her former co-star, Frankel. “I also love that Bethenny gives me creative license to be myself but at the same time gives me a motherly nudge to stand up for myself. She reminds me that I know what I’m doing for myself and my family. To not let anyone tell me otherwise.”
Frankel appeared on the show until the series’ third season, while Morgan has been a part of the cast since Season 3.
Following reports of her return, Frankel spoke out, stating she hadn’t “signed or decided to do anything.” Also, in an earlier report by The Inquisitr, it was reported that Frankel called the idea of a return “crazy.” Still, rumors persisted, one of which claimed the former talk show host had been offered $1 million to come back to The Real Housewives of New York City.
Sonja Morgan and the rest of the housewives will return to Bravo for Season 7 sometime next year.
