She joined the show in season 9 and has been a main Housewife ever since. The returning cast includes Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, Dorinda Medley. The new member of the cast is a woman named Leah McSweeney.

Further, “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.
She ended, “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.”
She spoke to fans, “The reality star took to social media writing her fans later, “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.”
Frankel starred on “RHONY” from season 1 until season 3. She would leave and return for season 7 until season 11. She also is a business mogul with her launching Skinnygirl years back.
