Since Season 11 of The Real Housewives of New York, fans haven't seen the face Bethenny Frankel, but it appears many want her back. On the heels of Dorinda Medley's departure and Eboni K. Williams' addition, viewership on Season 13 of the Bravo reality series has reached an all-time low when it comes to its live viewership. Many fans have expressed that they are less than thrilled with the latest season of the show.

According to @RatingsOnBravo via Twitter, only 764,000 live viewers watched the episode that aired on June 29 compared to last season when the series averaged more than 1 million viewers. Rumors have since circulated that Bravo is looking to shake up the cast. A source tells Daily Mail that "all hell is breaking loose behind the scenes at The Real Housewives of New York. While the cameras are down, the drama is continuing."

But when Bethenny made an appearance on Andy Cohen's show Watch What Happens Live in September of 2020, she did not rule out coming back to RHONY. She revealed, "It would have to be a different show, and I have had ideas. But it would have to be ... clean the deck, and it would be a different show."

Per Radar, Bethenny would love to come back and save the show but not as a part of the cast. She would want to be part of the production. “Bethenny doesn’t want to return to the show as a cast member, she wants to return as a producer. Bethenny was far more than just talent when she was on the show. From day one Bethenny was also a producer," a source tells the outlet.

They also add, "She had ideas and was very creative and was never shy about jumping in and shaping the show behind the scenes as well as on camera. Bethenny knows how to fix the show and is only a phone call away.”

Only time will tell if Bethanny does make her way back to the show in one capacity or another.

You can watch new episodes of The Real Housewives of New York City on Bravo on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST.
