The “Real Housewives of New York City” (RHONY), is an American television series that kicked off on March 4, 2008. Being the second installment of the “Real Housewives” series, it has successfully aired thirteen seasons with a total of 258 episodes. The show focuses on the lives of women living in New York City.
Bethenny Frankel is one of the major cast in the reality TV series, and she appeared in eight seasons out of thirteen. For someone that starred in more than half of the total seasons aired on television, you can tell that she knows quite a lot of things about the show.
