While the ladies from the Real Housewives of New Jersey are receiving budget cuts, Bethenny Frankel is trying to get a bigger raise for her role on the Real Housewives of New York! Reports reveal that Frankel received a production deal at another network, and now she is threatening to leave RHONY to focus on her new project…. unless of course she gets a massive raise!
Bethenny Frankel has a desire to take over television and become the next Oprah in a way. She recently nailed a deal with Leftfield Entertainment that will allow her to produce pretty much any show that her little heart desires. Thursday night will be a huge day for Frankel as her first show Food Porn will debut on the FYI Network!
While Bethenny Frankel originally had asked for two million to continue her time on the Real Housewives of New York City… the ultimately settled for 1.5 million. This of course would make her the highest paid housewife in the history of all the franchises.
Frankel was ready to walk away from Bravo TV if she didn’t receive a massive raise. Thankfully with Bravo cutting the budget for the Real Housewives of New Jersey, producers had a little room to offer her a raise.
While Bethenny Frankel will continue her time on the Real Housewives of New York thanks to the network giving into her demands, the other housewives on the show are said to be furious! Frankel is clearly an amazing businesswoman, and thankfully we will get to see her bitchy attitude for another season!
