'Real Housewives Of New York' Season 8 UPDATE: Bethenny Frankel Back For More Bravo TV Drama, Teases New Boyfriend On Instagram?

Yes to all you #RHONY followers. Bethenny Frankel is finalizing the deal on her contract and is set to sign on for Season 8 of the reality TV series. Expect more brouhaha from your favorite reality series from Bravo TV.

Daily News has learned that fellow “Real Housewives of New York” cast members Carole Radziwill and LuAnn de Lesseps were also in talks with the higher-ups and were reportedly asking for an increase in pay for their return to the much talked about reality TV show. Apparently, the producers of “Real Housewives of New York” wanted to keep the two feisty women because of their feud on and off screen which will be squeezed out by the network.

Relatively, neither the show’s producer nor network executives have yet to think about the status of Kristen Taekman or Ramona Singer. It was rumored before that Taekman might be cut off from the show for being “boring,” but her husband’s recent involvement in the Ashley Madison hack scandal and how she dealt with the controversy may have upped her popularity to #RHONY followers.

In Bravo TV’s special “Real Housewives of New York City Secrets Revealed,” aired previously, producers added footages from Josh and Kristen Taekman’s 10th anniversary celebration. The additional clips looked way more intriguing because of the infamous cheating scandal. One network insider said that for the reason that Kristen was founded to have marital problems of her own, she’s most definitely not characterless anymore. “She was perfect and pretty, and now she has problems like everyone else. That makes for good TV.”

Dorinda Medley will probably be offered to come back because she’s “lovable” and has an appeal factor to the viewers because of her eccentricity, but, one will be leaving the show — Heather Thomson. A source said, “Heather says she quit, but it was a mutual decision after meeting with the network. Heather didn’t like the drama and said it was bad for business and her personal life in the end.”

Bethenny Frankel wrote: “I guess i still got it.” Guess B still have that spice in her. The active entrepreneur has been posting some beguiling posts on her social media account much to the delight of her followers as of late. A string of photos hinted at a probable fresh romance for her.

Nevertheless, Us Weekly has confirmed that “Real Housewives of New York” star Bethenny Frankel currently dates Marcus Lemonis, CNBC’s “The Profit.” A source revealed that the two moguls met in summer and have been dating for some time now.

“They really like each other,” said the source.
