BFFs, we have some major breaking news about one lovely reality star who is hanging up her Real Housewives slippers!

Bethenny Frankel is ready to close the chapter in her life that made her a household name. The star of the past three seasons of The Real Housewives of New York City has decided to not return for a fourth.

“Last season was scary and painful,” Bethenny revealed to Us Weekly.

Bethenny, 39, who is currently a new mommy to her three-month-old daughter Bryn, is referring to her feud with former best friend Jill Zarin.

“[I don’t] see any reason to go back,” she says. “My guy’s saying not to be part of this cast.”

Due to contractual obligations with Bravo, The New York Times bestselling author and star of her own spinoff, Bethenny Getting Married, will appear a few times on certain episodes but according to Us Weekly, that’s it. Filming for the fourth season begins Sept. 20 so it will definitely be interesting to see if this brunette reality mogul decides to change her mind.
