Thanks But No Thanks: Bravo Not Gunning To Get Bethenny Frankel Back On 'RHONY' Despite The Mogul Claiming They Asked Her
Bravo is just fine without Bethenny Frankel.
After The Real Housewives of New York alum, 51, claimed she was asked to join the recently announced RHONY Legacy spinoff, insiders have claimed the network is all set without the Skinnygirl founder.
"Bethenny feels she deserves a big payday, but they [Bravo] didn't bite," an insider tells the print issue of Star Magazine. "Bravo doesn't want her back that bad and Andy Cohen is over her diva antics."

The Big Shot with Bethenny host claimed on a recent episode of her podcast, "Just B With Bethenny," the cable network had asked to once again make her grand return to the show that made her a household name.
"Many of you have been asking me for a response to [the] Housewives announcement," she began to explain in the April 15 episode. "So a couple weeks ago, I got a text from, you know, the powers that be in the Bravosphere saying, 'Is there a chance? Is there a chance? Just asking, is there a chance?' Meaning, would I come back."
"I know from a bunch of producers and people in the industry that they're casting the show of new people and that they clearly don't know who the show of old people will be because I was asked to be on it," she continued.

"So it's not been crafted. So it felt like, sort of, a half-baked announcement. I didn't really understand it," Frankel criticized of the series double hitter announcement.
However, this was not the first time the former talk show host ever spoke of the reboot on TikTok noting, "It’s a long story, and it’s very f–king boring. Jesus. Like, f–k."
As OK! previously reported, the network announced the new show on Wednesday, March 23, explaining the series will be back with an all-new cast. At the same time, Bravo plans to launch a brand new show that will follow some of the original RHONY cast members.
