Weight loss mogul Bethenny Frankel is excited to return to the “Real Housewives of New York City,” she confirmed in a message on her website.RELATED: So What Has Bethenny Frankel Been Up To Since Leaving Real Housewives?
Frankel, whose talk show was recently canceled, said she’s happy to return for season 7 of “RHONY” and can’t wait to see what adventures lie ahead.
“After many years of hesitation, I have decided to return to my roots on ‘The Real Housewives of New York City,'” she wrote. “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 idea of doing the show feels exciting and refreshing, like it did at the beginning all those years ago. New faces, new circumstances, and in many ways, a new me and a new life. I can’t wait to see what the road ahead has in store for us.”
Bethenny previously insisted she was not returning to “RHONY” after reports surfaced that Bravo executives had offered her $1 million to come back.
Bethenny starred on the Real Housewives of New York from 2008 to 2010 before getting her own spin-offs, “Bethenny Getting Married” and “Bethenny Ever After.”
Earlier this month, Bethenny made headlines after a judge ordered her to stop wearing her four-year-old daughter’s pajamas and posting them to Instagram.
The order came in the middle of Frankel’s heated divorce battle with ex-husband Jason Hoppy.
Judge Ellen Gesmer of the Manhattan Supreme Court said Bethenny showed poor judgment by posting her pajamas selfies to Instagram, saying the photos are “ridiculous.” “No more pajamas!” said Judge Gesmer.
“It’s not a joke. Her child is not a joke.”
Gesmer warned Frankel that photos like her pajama selfie will live on forever on the Internet and could embarrass her daughter, Bryn, down the line. Ironically, Bethenny had sought sole custody of Bryn after calling her ex-husband “white trash.”
The couple reached an agreement to co-parent in June 2014. A trial to divide up Frankel’s assets, estimated at $55 million, is expected later this year.
After spending two decades being obsessed with weight loss, diet and exercise, Bethenny is more relaxed about her body. Frankel detailed her fitness secrets in her book, Naturally Thin.
Frankel, who previously revealed she suffered from anorexia and bulimia for decades, said she no longer suffers from the eating disorders. The 5-foot-6 Bethenny said she stays fit by following a portion-controlled diet and doing yoga workouts.
Bethenny shared her weight loss and success secrets in her bestseller, Skinnygirl Solutions.
