Bethenny Frankel has been all over the media stating that she has quit The Real Housewives of New York and will not be returning to do battle with Jill Zarin and deal with Kelly Bensimon’s latest crazy breakdown. However, she might not be getting out of the reality show so easily. Bravo has got her on contract for another year!
“Bethenny’s contract with ‘Housewives’ is for another year,” a network executive tells PopEater.com. “Even though she has a contract for her own spin-off reality show, she needs to honor the contact she originally signed.”
So basically, if Bravo wants her on the show, she’ll be on the show.
“These ladies think they are superstars now and that something like a contract doesn’t matter,” the insider reveals. “Well, think again. Bravo isn’t in the business of creating stars and then letting them go to other networks. That just isn’t going to happen.”
I kind of hope this is true. RHONY with out Bethenny doesn’t seem like it will be as good.
