Bethenny Frankel, the Bravo reality star-turned-media powerhouse, is returning to the show that catapulted her career, as the cabler has confirmed that she will be back on “The Real Housewives of New York City” for season seven.

The new season will follow Frankel and returning cast Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson, Kristen Taekman, LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan.

“Bethenny is one of the most popular Housewives in the history of the franchise, and I couldn’t be more excited she is coming home to Bravo!,” said Andy Cohen, host and executive producer of “Watch What Happens Live” and executive producer of the “Real Housewives” franchise.

Frankel is one of the most successful names to come out of the Bravo reality machine, having parlayed her time on “Real Housewives” into book deals, spinoff shows, a short-lived talk show and food and lifestyle products — including her brand of spirits, Skinnygirl Cocktails.

“I’m genuinely excited, with a side of slightly nervous, for my return to ‘The Real Housewives of New York City,’” said Frankel. “Bravo has always been the place on television where I have the freedom to be unfiltered, honest and inappropriate, with an audience who has been with me from the beginning. I can’t wait to see what this next chapter brings for all of us. Watch what happens!”

“The Real Housewives of New York City” is produced by Shed Media U.S with Pam Healey, Lisa Shannon and Andrew Hoegl serving as executive producers.

    She needs the money or the attention. Bethany was a disappointment once she left RHW. i tried to watch her show when she was married and this woman was a bully and loud. I tried to watch her talk show and she had not appeal at all, just rambled and loud. Will NOT watch her anymore.
