A massive reboot plan for Real Housewives of New York was announced by Andy Cohen recently. Bethenny Frankel was just one of many Real Housewives stars who reacted to this major reboot news. However, her reaction was not received well by her fans.
The news was shared with Bravo fans by Andy Cohen on March 23rd. In an interview with Variety, the Bravo head said the reboot will be a two-pronged approach. One show “The Real Housewives of New York” will feature an all-new cast, while another tentatively titled “RHONY: Throwback” or “RHONY: Legacy” is planned to see past fan-favorites returning to the franchise.
Soon after Frankel shared a TikTok video on her social media platforms. She captioned the post “My opinion on the #RHONY reboot…”. The Bravo star flipped through a Barbie book and mouthed over the audio stating “It’s a long story and it’s very f****** boring. Jesus. Like, f*** me, really”. The quote is from Gina Liano on The Real Housewives of Melbourne.
Many fans were offended by her take. Real Housewives fans called out Frankel for her comment about the “boring” reboot.
One person said “This woman is insufferable!!!. She constantly trashes the show that gave her the platform to help accomplish her dreams.” A second one commented “It’s crazy I’m not a big Andy fan but he is always giving her credit & it seems like she never misses an opportunity to trash a show that means a lot to him & helped HER so much.”
A third one added that Frankel “just cannot stop talking about housewives no matter how much [she] claims to detest it.” Another fan said “she spent nearly 10 years on rhony and only left a couple years ago.. if it’s that boring why is its name still in your mouth???”
Some fans slammed her as “thirsty” with one writing “I agree it’s boring but Bethenny is getting close to being Jill level thirsty.”
In his conversation with Variety breaking down the RHONY reboot news, Cohen was asked if Frankel was a potential cast member for the legacy show. However, Cohen said he doesn’t see Frankel joining the reboot.
“Listen, I go back with Bethenny since the beginning. She’s moved to Connecticut, but she’s still in the Hamptons. Her life is now evolved to another place, so I can’t imagine her wanting to do it. But of course, you know, I never turn down a conversation with Bethenny about coming back”.
Andy has some particular cast members in mind that he would love to see appear on the throwback show but didn’t want to name them yet. On the other hand some fans really want to see one of the most famous housewife Bethenny Frankel back on the show. We just have to wait and see how this turns out.
