Last month, Bethenny Frankel confirmed her exit from The Real Housewives of New York City following Season 11. Initially, Andy Cohen commented on the departure with a crying-face emoji on her Instagram message about her exit. Now, the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host is opening up a bit more about Bethenny on a recent episode of his Sirium XM show.
He said that he had an "overwhelming feeling about Bethenny leaving New York, and I told her this ... that I am so grateful that she came back."
Andy, on his radio show this week, further commented on Bethenny's most recent exit from the show, reminding listeners that the Skinnygirl mogul, who joined RHONY in Season 1, exited after Season 3 — and then returned again several seasons later in Season 7.

"She already left is what we need to remember. We were so lucky to have these last seasons with her on them. It was so fun to have her back, and she brought so much to the show that I just am living in the gratitude of her second return. And I will hopefully live in the gratitude of her third return because we are much like the mob," he joked. "You can’t get out. I do hope and think that she will come back some time... Who knows?”
