Bethenny Frankel decided to return to The Real Housewives of New York after a few seasons away from the spotlight. During her time away, Bethenny tried to settle her divorce from Jason Hoppy, started dating, and kept growing her massive company. Despite Bravo‘s attempts to get her back on the show, Frankel kept turning down requests to appear on the show. However, when she thought the time was right, she decided to come back on the show, and it sounds like she’s enjoying it a lot. Since being back, Frankel has also explored her own production company and she just signed on to film a second reality show with Million Dollar Listing: New York star Fredrik Eklund.
According to a new tweet, Bethenny Frankel is now joking about her future, and it sounds like she won’t be cutting her ties with The Real Housewives of New York and Bravo. Maybe Bethenny realizes just how much she can market her business on the show and get people’s attention when new products are released. But one could also argue that Frankel loves the attention, and she loves the fact that she can film a reality show and get paid for it. Unlike her talk show which ended a few years ago, Bethenny can speak her mind without a filter.
When a fan asked her where she saw herself in 20 years, Bethenny Frankel revealed that she kept seeing Andy Cohen knocking at her door, pitching her ideas for other Real Housewives shows.
While some people believe that Bethenny should leave the show because she is now a multi-millionaire who doesn’t need a reality show to make money, Frankel reveals that she’s sticking around because the show has been very good to her. It was on this platform where Bethenny announced that she was doing a cocktail she called the skinny girl’s margarita. This was the beginning of her company, Skinnygirl.
Of course, Bethenny may be retired in 20 years and living in the Hamptons full-time, while her daughter is graduating college and starting her own career. Maybe this could be an interesting spin, as her life would be changing quite a bit.
What do you think of Bethenny Frankel still working with Andy Cohen and the Real Housewives of New York franchise in 20 years? Would you want to see her on the show for this long?
