Bethenny Frankel's days on "The Real Housewives of New York City" may have come to an end following the tragic overdose death of her boyfriend, Dennis Shields. According to recent reports, the longtime reality star and Skinnygirl creator is telling her friends and family members that she's leaving the show in an effort to find real, genuine happiness.

Bethenny Frankel may consider leaving 'RHONY'

While some have said that being on television is like oxygen to Frankel, she has endured a really rough year. So, it wouldn't be surprising to see her quit "The Real Housewives of New York City" -- or at least take a break. As fans will recall, Frankel endured a falling out with her friend [VIDEO] Carole Radziwill during filming on season 10 and was targeted by nearly every one of her co-stars during the recently aired three-part reunion special.

Bethenny has spent over a decade fighting and partying on the real housewives. Everything she did was to make herself famous,” a source close to Frankel said on Straight Shuter’s “Naughty But Nice” podcast. The source went on to reveal that Frankel is sick and tired of spending hours thinking of ways to out-argue her co-stars on "The Real Housewives of New York City" and rehearsing her comebacks.

Frankel has been featured for many years on Bravo and even chronicled her journey down the aisle with Jason Hoppy on her own spinoff series, "Bethenny Getting Married." A short time later, the spinoff was renamed "Bethenny Ever After" and after its end, Frankel returned to "RHONY" after taking a few seasons off to film her reality series.

Bethenny Frankel is focusing on business, not drama

On September 10, Bravo Style shared a report regarding Frankel's latest business venture, her jean line, Skinnygirl Jeans.

As fans well know, Frankel began her Skinnygirl brand years ago as a liquor but has since expanded into food and clothing. According to the outlet, Frankel's jean line includes a denim jacket, skirts, and knitwear items. The brand also includes larger sizes, despite its name.

"We believe every woman deserves to feel confident and live free from judgments. It’s not about a shape or size, it’s about every shape, every size, and every woman," a statement explained on the company's website.

'RHONY' season 11 is in production

Just as the 10th season of the show came to an end, the returning members of the cast, including Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, Tinsley Mortimer, and Sonja Morgan proved that they were on board for season 11 while attending an event thrown in honor of New York Fashion Week 2018.

"The Real Housewives of New York City" season 11 will air sometime in 2019 on Bravo TV.
