A source claims Bethenny has ‘one foot out the door’ during negotiations for the new season, and apparently she, “was confident there were options out there for her. She’s happy in her personal life with boyfriend Paul Bernon.” Paul is a real estate executive and film producer.
So Bethenny went into the room with execs and apparently threw out a huge number to see if Bravo would agree. They didn’t. So she gave a statement about her departure to Variety immediately, the RHONY producers heard it first on social media.
She also purposely caused a social media tailspin for RHONY fans by saying on Instagram that it was time to leave RHONY because she’s the only castmate “that is actually married.” Bethenny is still married to Jason Hoppy, the divorce and custody battle still continues.
Bethenny told Variety, “It’s time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy and my production partnership with Mark Burnett, producing and starring in shows which represent a shift in the conversation for women.”
