Bethenny Frankel Reveals How She Got Out of Her RHONY Contract

While some fans may have thought she left because of salary disputes, Bethenny clarified her reasoning was the total opposite. “If I had stayed, it would’ve been because of the money,” she revealed. “I left because I wanted to leave, I was ready to leave, and I used a technicality deal point as my excuse. I had just lost someone very close to me and I went to work when the show came back. I didn’t want to.”

Bethenny officially announced her RHONY departure in August 2019 ahead of the show’s 12th season, a decision that left her castmates and fans shocked. In a statement to Variety, she said, “It’s time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy and my production partnership with Mark Burnett, producing and starring in shows which represent a shift in the conversation for women.”

The statement continued, “My experience at Bravo has been an incredibly magical ride. I am so grateful to them for highlighting my entrepreneurialism and allowing me to pave the way for many women to achieve their goals. I am excited for my future. The best is yet to come.”
