Bethenny Frankel Announces New TV Show, and Saying "No" to Other "Opportunities"

Bethenny Frankel is finally returning to the screen. Though the 51-year-old may have said no to the Real Housewives of New York‘s legacy reboot, a new opportunity is now in the works.

In May 2022, the alum shared why she left RHONY and opened up about its toxic environment. At the time, some fans were baffled by Bethenny’s claims and felt she was the biggest source of its toxicity.

According to cnbc.com, Bethenny is joining up with Kevin O’Leary (from Shark Tank) for a second season of CNBC’s Money Court. The two stars will “preside over a wide range of financial disputes that every small and expanding business faces.”

“Whether it’s estranged partners battling over a deal gone sour, friends and business partners disagreeing over pricing strategy, or partners with different visions for their future, what all the cases have in common are high stakes, real money, and an agreement by the participants to abide by Kevin and Bethenny’s ruling,” said the description.

On Monday, Bethenny opened up about the new undertaking. At the start of her Instagram post, she seemed to reference her rejection of RHONY: Legacy. “I have reached a place in my career where I say no more than I say yes to opportunities in the interest of a better quality of life. When this idea and opportunity presented itself and evolved into what it is, I was so excited to embark on this business entertainment journey,” she wrote.

She went on to say, “This was a quality production, a challenging business endeavor and a hilarious television experience. At the end of each shooting day, reviewing case after case, Kevin & I would look at each other, stunned, exhausted and astonished at the intensity level of this process.”

“As Kevin pointed out, you know you have something when every member of a massive tv crew is glued to the monitor waiting to hear our business verdict,” she said. “To be able to help businesses navigate treacherous waters to try to survive and thrive in this climate, was a feat and a necessity. We welcomed the challenge. What an incredible journey this was!”

Season two of CNBC’s Money Court is set to premiere in 2023.
