Bethenny Frankel is reportedly coming back to her TV roots.

After a talk show and a spin-off series, the Skinnygirl mogul is rejoining the Bravo series, The Real Housewives of New York City, for season 7, according to Us Weekly.

Frankel's daytime program Bethenny was canceled in February and her 2010 spin-off Bethenny Getting Married? wouldn't be as easy to return to -- seeing as she's been in the midst of an ugly divorce with her estranged husband Jason Hoppy since 2012. The two share a four-year-old daughter named Bryn.

The 43-year-old TV star left RHONY four years ago and will return to find some new faces on the show. LuAnn de Lesseps and Ramona Singer are the only original members on the series, and currently star alongside Sonja Morgan, Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson and Kristen Taekman. In addition to Frankel, Us also reports that Kelly Bensimon and Jill Zarin are in talks to return for cameos in season 7.

Do you think it's a good idea for Frankel to come back to RHONY?

UPDATE: Frankel commented on the report of her Real Housewives return saying that she is working with show creator and Watch What Happens host Andy Cohen ...but it's not what people think. "Well I feel like I’m going to get in trouble if I say what I’m actually doing with Andy [Cohen]," she said on Sirius XM's Just Jenny show. "So I don’t want to say much more, but I haven’t signed anything and I have a great relationship with Andy and the housewives and they've asked me to come back for years."

She added about possibly returning to reality TV, "I don’t know that I’m going back to reality TV. There are some shows that I’m talking about that have a little bit of structure in reality. But if you’re asking me if I would ever do that -- or if I would be afraid to do that because of that that -- I would say no."

Barely hinting about what she's working on with Cohen, she continues, "Andy has a production company now. He’s doing a lot of different shows, so we’re talking about a couple of different things and deciding together what we’re going to do. So that could be why everyone’s writing about this."

Over the summer on the West Coast, Lisa Vanderpump spoke with ET about her future with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills franchise. Maybe she too will move to New York!
