Bethenny Frankel Takes Sake Shots on the Beach After Leaving 'RHONY'

By Ryan Naumann

Bethenny Frankel was living her best life taking shots on a Malibu beach just hours after announcing she is not coming back to “Real Housewives of New York."

The reality star posted a series of videos from Los Angeles, following the news she is not returning for season 12.

In the videos, Frankel was taking business meetings around town and even going to happy hour with a friend.

She also showed off some flowers sent by her boyfriend, Paul Bernon.

Later in the night, Frankel posted videos of her on the deck of a sick beach house in Malibu watching the waves. She explained she was preparing for a beach walk where she planned on reflecting. She held a shot of sake in one hand and panned the ocean.


She asked aloud, “Is the sky pink or is it the sake?” and “Maybe it’s the sake talking."

Frankel then said to her fans, “Are we not talking about the elephant in the room? … big day, big doings."


She told all her supporters that she was dying and loving all their comments. Frankel said, “Feeling it, reading it, loving it. Live for you, you are everything to me.”


The beach moments came hours after Variety broke Frankel was not returning to “RHONY”.

She released a statement, “I have decided to leave the ‘Housewives’ franchise to explore my next chapter,” Frankel said in a statement. “It’s time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy and my production partnership with Mark Burnett, producing and starring in shows which represent a shift in the conversation for women. With the changes in modern culture, I want to highlight the strength, confidence and unstoppable power that women have. My experience at Bravo has been an incredibly magical ride. I am so grateful to them for highlighting my entrepreneurialism and allowing me to pave the way for many women to achieve their goals. I am excited for my future. The best is yet to come.”


Frankel starred on “RHONY” from season 1 until season 3. She left the show and returned for season 7 until season 11.

She also is a business mogul, having launched Skinnygirl years back.


The reality star took to social media writing her fans later, writing,

"I wanted to take a moment to write a personal note to you. I am so grateful to you for sticking with me through everything. You started this journey with me in my tiny apartment in my late 30s, wondering what would happen to me. I was broke, single, had no family and no idea what the future held.

I had big dreams and I never stopped, but I honestly didn’t know if I would ever get here.

You helped me to get here. I would read your letters and messages and grow from your struggles. You would give me your honest opinion about my products and projects and helpful advice about divorce, relationships, motherhood, miscarriages, health, and surviving the death of a loved one and almost my own. You have shared your ideas with me and I have been inspired by and learned from you.

I am fortunate to have created a business and career that some people only dream of. I had a beautiful baby girl who is now 9 years old, and she has changed me as a human being. I was able to give back and help people all over the world who have been hit with the worst of unforeseen circumstances, which we will all continue together.

GO for it. Whatever it is. Reach for your dreams in life and love and make the impossible happen, because it can happen and it WILL happen. Come from a place of yes and it’s yours for the taking.

Thank you so much for your love and support. And stay tuned, you haven’t seen the last of me. There are many amazing things to come. I love you all and am so lucky to have you in my life!

PS: New York City is still my playground.
