NeNe Leakes has joined the chorus of well-wishers welcoming Bethenny Frankel back to Bravo and The Real Housewives of New York City. Bethenny, who starred in the first three seasons of RHONY as well as the spinoffs Bethenny Getting Married and Bethenny Ever After..., will hold the prized apple alongside LuAnn de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, Carole Radziwill, Kristen Taekman, Ramona Singer and Heather Thomson when the show returns for its seventh season.
"A big welcome back 2 my original housewives sorority sista," NeNe tweeted to her cross-franchise pal Bethenny and offered some advice in jest, "Snatch a wig girlllllll." Bethenny replied, "Gurrrlll! Who's crazier?"
Besides both being Bravolebs, the two ladies also connected when Nene appeared on Bethenny's talk show last year.
Countess LuAnn de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan are among the RHONY cast members to welcome Bethenny back to the series but west coast Housewives Heather Dubrow and Kyle Richards, who tweeted, "Welcome 'home' sister!!," have also sent the original RHONY love.
Bethenny, who in the past said "never say never" about a possible return to RHONY, has expressed both excitement and nervousness about returning to the show that made her a household name in 2008.
"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," she said in a statement on her website. "I can't wait to see what this next chapter brings for all of us. Watch what happens!"
