'Real Housewives of New York City': Bethenny Frankel is back for season 3

Bethennyfrankel Contrary to last month's rumors started by the  New York Post  (and spread by me),  Bethenny Frankel is returning to "The Real Housewives of New York City" this fall.

"I'm definitely going to do the 'Housewives' this season," Frankel told People over the weekend. "It's been great. I love it. I understand we start filming [again] in September."

As for the scuttlebutt that Bethenny would bounce on 'Housewives' for her own solo series, the reality star says that no deals have been closed, but she seems open to do some sort of variety or cooking show.

So, she's not being followed by cameras as she plans her wedding to boyfriend, Jason Hoppy?!

Um, no.  

I mean, they're not even engaged.  

In love? Yes.  

But betrothed? Take a breath, tabloids. It hasn't happened just yet.
