Now we know one housewife who isn't returning for the new season of The Real Housewives of New York City. According to RadarOnline.com, Bethenny Frankel will bid farewell to the Bravo series where she catapulted to fame as she now stars on her own series, Skinny & The City, which will follow Frankel as she plans her wedding to Jason Hoppy.
As BuddyTV reported previously, the couple has been dating for eighth months but has managed to keep their relationship under the radar for quite some time. Frankel's rep hasn't confirmed the engagement yet but says marriage is definitely in the cards for the happy couple.
Bethenny and Jason first met at NYC nightclub Tenjune. Since then, the couple has attended several events together and went on a romantic vacation in Turks & Caicos in May. She has even reportedly gotten approval from her co-stars on The Real Housewives of New York City, who described Jason as a catch.
"I think he's good for her," fellow Real Housewife star Jill Zarin told RadarOnline.com, adding that she and Frankel have been "going through a rough patch" lately. "He's very, very good looking, he doesn't gossip. He's not insecure. You can't be with Bethenny and be insecure."
So far, Kelly Bensimone is the only one who has signed on for the new season of The Real Housewives of New York. The rest of the original cast members are reportedly holding out for six-figure deals. Bravo has already confirmed that casting is underway for the new season.
