Bethenny Frankel: 'I'm Really Done With Housewives'

Bethenny Frankel has suggested that she is "really done" with Real Housewives Of New York City.

The reality star - who has her own spinoff show Bethenny Getting Married? - was asked by Fox & Friends whether she will be returning to the Bravo franchise.

"Given the cast and the way that it was, I really think I'm done," she replied. "There's no reason... We beat it to death. We laughed, we cried, we cursed each other out and it's over."

The new mother - who married husband Jason Hoppy in March - was also asked whether her solo reality show had caused friction among the rest of the cast.

"There was definitely friction. It was like the elephant in the room, the underlying tension," she said. "It was never discussed between myself and my castmates. I've moved on and it's amazing and the show is doing incredibly well."

She continued: "It shows an intelligent and witty show can do well without people slapping each other and cursing each other out and flipping tables."
OK, Bethenny's done, can we all move on now? Really, I have no problem with Bethenny leaving, she has it all now and considering how we got to know Bethenny in the first place--as the attractive, witty single, in her late-30's 'Housewife' who wants to settle down--we should be happy for her. Then too, it's been clear that Jill and Kelly (in particular) have been envious of Bethenny for awhile now and with a new family does Bethenny really need the added darama and tension? Sure 'Housewife' fans will miss Bethenny (and God we can only hope that Krazy Kelly doesn't come back, but that's wishful thinking), but we'll survive.
