While everyone is still buzzing about the big blowup on Monday night's 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' reunion special, even bigger news is hitting the wires about its sister show, 'Real Housewives of New York.' Bethenny Frankel is quitting, UsMagazine.com exclusively reports.

After three seasons of bickering with other socialites on the island of Manhattan, the brunette reality star is calling it quits. "Last season was scary and painful. It took all of the joy out of it," Frankel told UsMagazine. "My gut's saying not to be part of this cast."

Frankel and husband Jason Hoppy recently welcomed daughter Bryn in May--and she just doesn't think the show is a good fit anymore.
