Bethenny tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that she doesn’t miss ‘RHONY’ — and explains why she’s not surprised that Alex and Cindy are done!
Bethenny Frankel once made the decision to leave The Real Housewives of New York City and start her own show Bethenny Ever After, so she’s not thrown off by the fact that Alex McCord and Cindy Barshop won’t be returning next season. “I’m not surprised,” Bethenny tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Having seven Housewives is kind of a lot, you can’t have seven. They’re all great, but someone has to go.”
“I’m not surprised about Cindy — she was new and maybe too normal,” continues Bethenny. “She looked a little overwhelmed with everything, but it’s great for her business and it definitely brought awareness to it.”
Cindy, who owns a chain of popular spas called Completely Bare, probably had a tough time focusing on her business and making time to film. “Cindy and I have mutual friends and she probably doesn’t have a lot of time or want to deal with it,” explains Bethenny. “Honestly, it could be really exhausting.”
“And Alex — I don’t know, I honestly haven’t watched enough to know,” adds Bethenny. “I know it almost happened last year, but then she really got into a lot drama.”
Bethenny herself doesn’t miss RHONY at all. “OMG not at all! I’m happy to be off,” she admits. “I wouldn’t want to be on the show. I wouldn’t be proud to show that to my daughter. I’m proud of my show. I wouldn’t want her to see women being rewarded for bad behavior. I want her to see women can get along with one another.”
