The world first met Bethenny Frankel on the Real Housewives of New York in 2008, when she was living in a small apartment and working as a health-conscious chef for prominent New Yorkers. And while we all loved watching her squabble with Countess LuAnn and Kelly Killoren-Bensimon, Frankel high-tailed it off the show before Season 4 aired.
So on last night's Watch What Happens Live after show, a viewer had a very good question: How much money would it take for Frankel to return to the Real Housewives
An open-mouthed Bethenny shook her head and insisted, "There is no number."
Andy Cohen couldn't believe there was no amount of money that would lure Frankel back for three months of filming. "Everyone has a number," he says. "For $5 million you wouldn't come back?"
"No," Frankel says, adding, "I'm not as rich as everyone thinks I am."
Back in the old days, when she was strapped for cash, she might have done it, she hints. "I would shove this up my ass for $50," she jokes, holding up her Andy Cohen bobblehead doll. "Yes, I was totally broke."
But as far as finding a figure that could make her return to her Bravo roots: "I'm going to get back to you on the number."
Watch Bethenny Frankel dish on what it would take for her to return to RHONY and tell us in the comments: do you want Bethenny to come back?
