Who actually controls The Real Housewives of New York? That would be Bethenny Frankel, of course.
The Inquisitr reports that Frankel has a hefty list of demands that need to be met if she's going to return to the popular Bravo series in its ninth season — Frankel is currently appearing on Season 8 and causing plenty of drama as she feuds with co-star Sonja Morgan and hangs out with her best friend, Carole Radziwill. According to the site, Frankel is super close to Bravo host Andy Cohen, and because of that, what she wants, she will probably get when it comes to the series.
Rumors have been swirling that Radziwill's days on RHONY are numbered because producers think she just doesn't bring much to the table. Enter Frankel's first demand: She wants Radziwill to stay.
In another shocking demand, Frankel is apparently insisting that all of her co-stars sign a contract stating they won't mention her daughter, Bryn, or her dramatic divorce from Jason Hoppy. Considering that those topics could create some viewer-friendly drama on the show, it might be in the network's best interest to tell Frankel no. But if it comes down to granting her requests or losing Frankel from the show, I think we can all see which direction this situation is going to take.
With the ongoing medical issues Frankel has been facing, she's basically guaranteed a returning spot on the show just to finish out her ongoing storyline. But will she take it if Bravo refuses to bend to her will and grant her list of demands for the upcoming season? Only time will tell.
