Coming kind of expected, Bravo TV has renewed two of its most-successful series "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" and "The Real Housewives of New York City". The former's renewal comes on the heels of its reunion episode which sets a rating record of 3.9 million viewers aka Bravo's most watched telecast of the season.
"New Jersey" will return for the third season next year while "New York City" will be back for the fourth season and start filming September 20. "New York City" however, will see Bethenny Frankel no more. After three seasons, the socialite decided to walk away from the show due to her rivalry with co-star Jill Zarin.
In an interview with Us Weekly Frankel said, "Last season was scary and painful. It took all of the joy out of it." Frankel has been in feud with Kelly Bensimon since the first season but she was hurt by the fact that her BFF Zarin bad mouthed her last season.
Nevertheless, Frankel still has her own show "Bethenny Getting Married?" which debuted this June to a number which almost matched the second season premiere of "Real Housewives of New York City".
