“I'm genuinely excited, with a side of slightly nervous, for my return to The Real Housewives of New York City,” the single mom, 43, said 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!”
“Bethenny has been in formal talks with Bravo to return to ‘RHONY,’ an insider told Radar on August 6. “Bravo has told Bethenny she could return as a special guest star, which wouldn’t require as much filming.”
“Because she refused to go on two separate trips with the rest of the women, the producers are fuming at her and they’re taking her out of the show as punishment,” a source told Radar in May.
But she’ll still be wrecking havoc on the small screen: Descher, 44, and banker husband Reid will next appear on WE tv’s Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars early next year.
