Is Bethenny Frankel following in Dina Manzo's footsteps?

Like the former Real Housewives of New Jersey star who recently revealed she was done with the show, Frankel says she too may be walking away from the NYC version of Bravo's hit franchise – unless there are a few key changes.

"I don't see myself going back to The Real Housewives the way that the cast is now," the new mom told PEOPLE Thursday at a Pampers event in New York on Thursday.

Frankel went on a "horrendous" trip to the Virgin Islands with her nemesis Kelly Bensimon and saw her friendship with Jill Zarin unravel on the latest season of the reality show.

Whether or not she decides to step away from the drama, Frankel is more than happy to continue appearing on another show: Her own.

Bethenny Getting Married? has been so well received, everyone loves it and it's really all about me, so that takes a big weight off of my shoulders because I guess I can carry a show," she says about the highest-rated premiere in Bravo's history.

"I just am so happy. I really have the best fans. They're so interactive and they root for me," she adds. "I could cry. I have the best fans. It's all about the relationship with the fans." –Eunice Oh and Zara Kessler
