The reality star announced to Usmagazine.com that she quit The Real Housewives of New York, turning down Bravo's offer to appear on a fourth season.
Apparently the trauma of season three made a mark on Frankel, after she fought endlessly with co-stars Kelly Bensimon and Jill Zarin (her former pal).
She said, "Last season was scary and painful. It took all of the joy out of it.
"My gut’s saying not to be part of this cast."
Anyway, Bethenny is past all that professionally. She has her own show, Bethenny Getting Married?, and she's busy taking care of her three-month-old baby girl, Brynn.
