Bethenny Frankel once called her memories of the Real Housewives of New York City “flashbacks from Vietnam,” so what convinced her to take a second tour of duty? has learned that the savvy businesswoman and reality star scored a million-dollar paycheck for her return to the series — infuriating her fellow housewives in the process!

"Ramona is absolutely outraged that Bethenny is making a million dollars, especially after her failed talk show,” an insider told “But Bethenny wasn't going to come back earning less than any of the housewives, and held out to be paid the most."

"It's especially frustrating for Bethenny's co-stars because she isn't bringing the drama that was expected,” the source continued.

Insiders previously told that producers aren’t happy with the failed talk show host’s performance so far, since she’s been playing nice and seemingly using the show as a platform to rehab her tarnished image.

After leaving the cast in 2010, Frankel’s career hit a high note with Bravo spin-offs Bethenny Getting Married and Bethenny Ever After, but the failure of her talk show, Bethenny, likely set the stage for her reality TV comeback — one that could be short-lived.


“Producers brought Bethenny back to spice things up, and she is acting like some sort of advice guru,” the source explained. “It’s obvious to everyone that Bethenny is only using the show to rehab her public image which took a huge hit after her divorce proceedings from estranged husband, Jason Hoppy began.”
