Bethenny Frankel quits 'The Real Housewives of NYC'




Time for everyone to stop watching The Real Housewives of New York (well, if you haven't already): Bethenny Frankel says she's leaving the Bravo show after three seasons. Aw, all she has is her own show, a line of margaritas, a couple of books and a workout video to worry about now.

"Last season was scary and painful," the 39-year-old told Us. "It took all the joy out of it." She's referring, of course, to her fighting with Kelly Killoren Bensimon and Jill Zarin. Now she doesn't "see any reason to go back," and has turned down Bravo's offer to return.

Don't get to distraught: She's contractually obligated to show up on a least a few episodes, even if she's not back full-time. We wonder if the other women will listen to Jill's plot to not shoot scenes with her ... that seems like the only way you'd get screen time on that show these days.
