Bethenny Frankel denied rumors she is set to return to Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York City, but admitted she is working with the network on two upcoming projects.

Bethenny Frankel Not Returning To Real Housewives

After being spotted entering Bravo headquarters in New York, rumors emerged that the former RHONY star was getting ready to return to her old stomping ground. On Wednesday, Frankel, who also starred in her own reality spin-off for the network, Bethanny Getting Married and Bethanny Ever After, set the record straight during a radio interview.

I haven’t signed anything. I have a great relationship with Andy Cohen and the housewives, and they’ve asked me to come back for years,” Frankel told Sirius XM Radio’s Jenny Hut.

Frankel added that she has met with Cohen multiple times to discuss projects, saying, “I’m going in and out of Bravo, I’m talking to Andy about two different projects, because he’s got a production company now…I haven’t signed or decided to do anything. But it’s not what everyone thinks it is.”

Frankel refused to reveal any details on the potential projects, but it would seem that she is looking to develop a few new shows with Cohen. “He’s doing a lot of different shows, so we’re talking about a couple of different things and deciding together what we’re going to do. So that could be why everyone’s writing about this,” Frankel hinted.

Frankel said that, even if she did return to reality television in front of the camera, she wouldn’t be as open as she had previously to protect her young daughter, Bryn. “Would I ever put every intimate detail of my personal life or my daughter in that? No," she said. "But, I think that I connect to women about my personal perspective and experience. It’s not about seeing what my daughter’s doing. And it’s not about seeing who I’m married to or who I’m sleeping with.”
