Bethenny Frankel recently announced that she's "distancing" herself from The Real Housewives Of New York, and likely won't return for another season.
But she seems to be fibbing to her fans. The outspoken star, 45, signed a three-year contract when she went back to the Bravo hit in 2014, meaning she must stay another season, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
"She's not going anywhere," a source close to the cast tells RadarOnline.com.
The insider claims she's still making seven figures in her Bravo paycheck.
She's certainly earned her salary. The single mom found herself in the midst of major drama this season when she discovered LuAnn de Lesseps' fiancé, Tom D'Agostino, cheated on her just days before their engagement party. (RadarOnline.com first reported the scandal last month.)
