Bethenny Frankel may have returned to spice up The Real Housewives of New York City this season, but that doesn't mean she gets a say in how she's portrayed.
Although some of Frankel's cast mates have stated that she gets editorial approval over her scenes before episodes air, Andy Cohen said Sunday that she has "no warning" over the content, even when she acts "like a beast."

After last year's disastrous trip to the Berkshires, no viewer would ever imagine The Real Housewives of New York City would return to the Massachusetts getaway – but they did for Dorinda Medley's birthday.
Things didn't start well in Round 2 at Medley's beautiful hillside home when the hostess walked in on Ramona Singer and Kristen Taekman talking about Medley's boyfriend John's tendency to get a bit flirty.
"He was touchy-feely," said Taekman, referring to when she and John got too close for comfort on the dance floor in a recent episode.
"You were right up there with him dancing," said a quickly angered Medley. "I was standing right there."
"I don't want to argue about this," said Taekman.

Bethenny Frankel "cracked" on Tuesday's Real Housewives of New York City, breaking down as she recounted last week's dramatic reunion with her stepfather.
"We had the talk I've been waiting for years to have," Frankel icily recounted to her therapist, Dr. Xavier Amador. "There wasn't some big 'Come to Jesus' moment."
An increasingly sarcastic and agitated Frankel – who recalled growing up amid abuse, alcohol, drugs and gambling – continued, "What do you think it was like? It was a party. I loved every moment of it. You're just surviving."
But Amador finally broke through to her.
"Do you think a 5-year-old girl who sees her mother get dragged and hit by a phone feels nothing?" he asked. "Don't close the lid on your feelings. What you can do is understand how what happened affected your ability to feel and trust and how that impacts those you love, including your daughter."
Frankel finally broke down, collapsing into tears.

While Ramona Singer continued to celebrate her birthday with girlfriends on Tuesday's Real Housewives of New York City, Bethenny Frankel went in search of family.
"Oh, my God, I don't fit in," Frankel said at Singer's party. "I've been to women's Upper East side parties before. Some women look great, and some have gone over the top. It looks like the Star Wars bar."
Frankel told her therapist she also felt like she didn't fit in if she didn't make an effort to reconnect with her stepfather John Parisella, whom she hadn't seen in years.
"He raised me. It got a little hairy at the end, and we stopped speaking," she said. "But he was the only father I've ever known. I feel like I need to reopen that door."

Real Housewives of New York Recap: The Wives Head to Atlantic City (and It's a Gamble Who Will Survive)

The Real Housewives of New York City headed to Atlantic City for Ramona Singer's birthday, but the real gamble was whether the wives would kill one another.
They started out fighting (and drinking) in the morning after Sonja Morgan refused to let them into her home in the driving rain, and the fighting (and drinking) never stopped.
"This is my birthday weekend, and I've had enough stress in my life," Singer yelled in the limo ride to Atlantic City.
"On a scale of one to 10, how happy am I that I missed the limo ride?" asked Carole Radziwill. "A 12."

Bethenny Frankel may be a successful business mogul, but that doesn't mean she's got every aspect of her life together.
"I think I suck at choosing the right people for me," the Real Housewives of New York star says in the May issue of Haute Living New York.
"I don't think that I actually suck when I'm in a relationship, but I think that I haven't gone with my gut enough," she continues. "I've made decisions out of fear, which is the biggest mistake people can make. You have to make decisions out of truth."
