BETHENNY TO EXECS: GIVE ME A RAISE!
Bethenny Frankel’s days as a Housewife may be over. The Real Housewives of New York City star, 45, is refusing to return for season nine unless she gets a pay increase. “Bethenny’s currently making around $1.75 million per season and is demanding $2 million,” says an insider. “She feels like she deserves this. She really put herself out there this season and brought a lot of drama.” Bravo isn’t sold on the idea. “The ratings for season eight don’t warrant her demands. But Bethenny doesn’t care. If she doesn’t get this raise, she’ll definitely quit.”
