The Real Housewives of New York” is going to get an extra dose of drama when Bravo’s hit reality show returns. Original cast member, Bethenny Frankel has CONFIRMED via her website she’s back for season seven.

“After many years of hesitation, I have decided to return to my roots on The Real Housewives of New York City. I have been through a long and arduous road since my departure, and I’m finally coming out on the other side. It finally feels right to go home again.”

The Skinny cocktail purveyor and children’s pajama-wearer famously left after season three. During that season, Frankel had feuded with Jill Zarin over Frankel ditching her friend over new found fame.

 “I’m genuinely excited, with a side of slightly nervous, for my return to The Real Housewives of New York City,” she says in a statement. “Bravo has always been the place on television where I have the freedom to be unfiltered, honest and inappropriate, with an audience who has been with me from the beginning. I can’t wait to see what this next chapter brings for all of us. Watch what happens!”

Andy Cohen is also thrilled with her return. “Bethenny is one of the most popular Housewives in the history of the franchise, and I couldn’t be more excited she is coming home to Bravo!,” he says.

Sonja Morgan, Kristen Taekman, Heather Thomson, LuAnn de Lesseps and Carole Radziwill will all be back in season seven. The show has also reportedly added Helena Christenson, former supermodel, to the cast.

    I didn’t watch NY with Bethenny. Is this good news?

    • She was a bitch but good for TV. She ditched her friend, Jill Zarin when she found fame. Jill got her on the show and treated her like a sister.

      • TartLemon

        I disagree that Bethenny was the reason for that friendship breakup. She tried several times to talk it out, but Jill refused. Jill later confirmed the reason she threw the temper tantrums was for the sake of drama on camera. Frankelly, with all Bethenny had going on at that time, I don’t blame her for cutting Jill out of her life.

      • MorningYawn

        Jill did treat Bethany like a sister until she thought a little BFF breakup with Beth would be good ratings. Jill too it too too far. It backfired on her big time.

      • RonnieIsBack

        And fed her broke azz too.

  • MorningYawn

    I liked Bethany in the show. It’s odd timing though, their is no connection to any of the current cast members. Did not watch NY this year and surely will it next yr if Jill returns.

  • italiano bambino

    I’m happy she’s back she didn’t bother me as much as luann and jill. NOW Bethany was good in putting luman in her place.

  • I’m happy that she is back because she was funny and fun on RHONY. I just didn’t like how she treated Jason, and how she got when she was all “Skinny Girl” ish Let’s just hope we can have “Go to sleep” Bethenny and not “I can fit into my daughter’s clothing” Bethenny

  • HOTNTX50

    I’m torn. I actually really liked Bethenny when she was on the RHONY. But I absolutely found her revolting after watching how she dogged Jason and used him as a sperm donor.

    It certainly makes me wonder why a woman that supposedly has, or has had it all, would want to jump back into the fray of reality t.v., other than to stroke a narcissistic personality.

    Hell, if she’s coming back, then they should bring back all of the originals — Jill, Alex/Simon, Crazy Kelly and LuAnn. Now THAT would be entertainment! LOL.

    • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

      No, oh please not Kelly. She makes me stabby!

      • Awww but crazy kelly was good entertainment tho lol….she was annoying as hell..but great entertainment lol. with her crazy ass. lol.

        • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

          True, she does Lola, but that girl just rubs me the wrong way. I want to slap the shit outta her. Not sure why but she brings out my nasty side. The way she infuriates me. I just feel the urge, the NEED to POP her but good!

          • haha…yeah..that is true also…we need a crazy that doesn’t make you want to punch them through the tv lol.

        • RonnieIsBack

          I loved Kelly! when she called Methenny a Hoebag, she was my new BFF

  • RonnieIsBack

    This bitter bish..I can see it now..she will rage war with The Beaver, Carole on behalf of ADiva (which I cannot wait), she will have Ramona kissing her bony flat azz and she will hate Kristen bc Methenny hates all models.

    and she will play the victim while tossing her money in their faces because she was such a broke bish when she was on the show.

  • michey

    I like Bethenny but she did become a big disappointment in the way she treated and still treats Jason

  • Dani-K

    So I did not see Ramona-coaster listed as returning. Has she got too much going on with her divorce from Mario? So happy that Aviva the leg thrower is not coming back.

  • Trippinhhard

    Bethanny must be desperate to be back on TV.. She has the money, now what
    will she be saying skinny girl this or that. Not interested in her big ugly mouth. Scary
