An original cast member on the series, Bethenny originally left the show after season three and starred in her own spinoff. Following the success of her business, she got her own talk show. As that wrapped up, she made her way back to RHONY and stayed from seasons seven through 11. The Skinnygirl mogul announced her exit in a statement to Variety on Wednesday, Aug. 21. She then took to Instagram to pen a personal note to her followers.
