What a strange twist of fate!
The 44-year-old recent divorc├â┬⌐e hadn’t been a part of the franchise for four years while she was off becoming one of the highest paid reality stars thanks to her Skinny Girl brand.
However, that all changed at the start of season seven… and it turns out that her co-stars were actually responsible for her return!
While being interviewed by Nick Lachey on his Big Morning Buzz Live talk show on VH1 on Thursday, Bethenny revealed that it was actually the cast and not Andy Cohen or the producers that urged her to get back to her celebreality roots.
We guess everyone involved with the show could tell they needed a breath of fresh air!
Ch-ch-check out an always-candid Bethenny spilling the truth (below)!!!
