Playing Bethenny Frankel Makes Fiery Return to 'RHONY': How Did Her Co-Stars React?

Bethenny Frankel is back on The Real Housewives of New York, but is she welcome?

"The B is back!" Heather Thomson said. "She's coming off of a failed marriage, a failed talk show and so people want to know."

Bethenny's return follows her split from husband Jason Hoppy in 2012 and the cancelation of her self-titled talk show in 2014.

"My divorce has made me a vulnerable person," Bethenny said in an emotional show clip. "I don't want the same life back. I want a new life."

Ramona Singer pointed out that Bethenny didn't exactly make coming back easy on herself.

"She did say she was embarrassed to be a Housewife and that came back to bite her a little," Ramona said. "But she said she feels the franchise has changed and now she's happy to be on."

Not all is bad in Bethenny's life. She sold the Skinnygirl Cocktails company for about $100 million.

"It feels like the old days of Housewives. It feels like when we first started," LuAnn de Lesseps said. "You'll be surprised to see who [Bethenny] really gets along with this season and who she doesn't."

The season premiere of The Real Housewives of New York City airs April 7 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
