Bethenny Frankel is exiting The Real Housewives of New York City ahead of the show’s 12th season. "I wanted to take a moment to write a personal note to you. I am so grateful to you for sticking with me through everything. You started this journey with me in my tiny apartment in my late 30s, wondering what would happen to me. I was broke, single, had no family and no idea what the future held," Frankel wrote in a note to her fans, which was posted on Instagram Wednesday. "I had big dreams and I never stopped, but I honestly didn’t know if I would ever get here. You helped me to get there." She concluded the note by saying, “PS: New York City is still my playground.” Entertainment Tonight points out that Frankel has been a part of RHONY since 2008, leaving in 2010 before rejoining in 2015. A premiere date for RHONY‘s return has not yet been announced.
