Bethenny Frankel Thinking Of Leaving ‘RHONY’ After Sonja Threatens Lawsuit?

Bethenny Frankel is back on The Real Housewives of New York, and she has finally finalized her divorce from Jason Hoppy. Over the past couple of years, Bethenny has been battling her ex-husband in court over her apartment, and he finally decided to vacate it. It is possible that he had the funds to stay in the apartment because she was paying him spousal support each month for years. But now that she’s in the clear with her divorce, Frankel could be dealing with some other issues from her Real Housewives of New York co-star.

According to a new tweet, Bethenny Frankel is now hinting that Sonja Morgan could be suing her. It seems like a crazy rumor that surfaced over the weekend. Frankel did reply to a few tweets that hinted that Morgan was planning on using lawyer Gloria Allred to sue her. She didn’t reveal what the lawsuit was about, but fans were shaking their heads over this rumor.

“WHOA, hang on – Sonja was going to retain Gloria Alred to sue YOU!? I mean who does that? That is stupid/funny. Wowza. #RHONY,” one person wrote to Bethenny after reading tweets that she could be thinking about suing Frankel.

Bethenny Frankel didn’t quite confirm the news, but she did hint that she had heard the same rumors. She didn’t reveal why she was the target of this lawsuit, but it sounds like the threats of a lawsuit are enough to make her question her role on the show.

“No….that can’t be real…I mean come on Sonja!! We won’t think you are batsh*t crazy if you don’t do these things,” one person replied after learning of the news.

And it sounds like Bethenny Frankel may not be willing to put her business on The Real Housewives of New York if the lawsuit is indeed targeted towards her Skinnygirl business. Sonja and Frankel have fought earlier this season over Morgan’s booze line, Tipsy Girl, and the lawsuit could be business related.

“So happy Bethenny was #1! The B is back and I hope she stays #Skinnygirllove,” one person wrote to Bethenny Frankel, who replied with, “Now that’s another question. Some damage was done.”

It sounds like Bethenny Frankel may be questioning whether she should return to the show next year. Of course, many people think that the show is so much better with Frankel because she’s outspoken and is one of the original housewives. But her feud with Sonja has been solved on the show, at least for now. A few months ago, Bethenny Frankel opened up about her frustrations over Morgan’s decision to launch a cheater brand.

“The Sonja situation was just kind of sad. Obviously, her idea can’t touch my brand. There is no product or distribution. It is a made-for-television idea, and I have over 20 varieties of wine, vodka and ready to drink. You can’t find a city of the Housewives where several women haven’t followed in my footsteps and attempted booze. Bring it on. The more the merrier. It is a brutal business, and it may look easy, but as you see, it isn’t,” Bethenny Frankel has previously written in her Bravo blog for the show. “This was just an unoriginal name and idea, and it gives a false impression to the audience–that you just go on tv, and poof a brand is born. That isn’t how it works.”

What do you think of Bethenny Frankel possibly not returning to the show next year? Do you think Bethenny will end up with a lawsuit from Sonja Morgan?
