Bethenny Frankel is departing The Real Housewives of New York ahead of the show's 12th season.

Frankel, on Instagram Wednesday, bid farewell to fans and looked back on her time on the Bravo reality series.

"I am so grateful to you for sticking with me through everything. You started this journey with me in my tiny apartment in my late 30s, wondering what would happen to me. I was broke, single had no family and no idea what the future held," she said alongside an early image of herself taken from the series.

"I had big dreams and I never stopped, but I honestly didn't know if I would ever get here," Frankel continued before thanking fans for always giving their honest opinions about her life and career.

Not all taglines are equal. No, many of the Housewife lines have relied on clichés, bad puns and worst of all, earnestness. Luckily, these 10 ladies have shown the rest of the pack how it’s done.

"I am fortunate to have created a business and career that some people only dream of. I had a beautiful baby girl who is now 9-years-old and she has changed me as a human being. I was able to give back and help people all over the world who have been hit with the worst unforeseen circumstances, which we will all continue together," she said.

Frankel also discussed how fans should strive to achieve their goals.

I wanted to take a moment to write a personal note to you. I am so grateful to you for sticking with me through everything. You started this journey with me in my tiny apartment in my late 30s, wondering what would happen to me. I was broke, single, had no family and no idea what the future held. I had big dreams and I never stopped, but I honestly didn’t know if I would ever get here. You helped me to get here. I would read your letters and messages and grow from your struggles. You would give me your honest opinion about my products and projects and helpful advice about divorce, relationships, motherhood, miscarriages, health, and surviving the death of a loved one and almost my own. You have shared your ideas with me and I have been inspired by and learned from you. I am fortunate to have created a business and career that some people only dream of. I had a beautiful baby girl who is now 9 years old, and she has changed me as a human being. I was able to give back and help people all over the world who have been hit with the worst of unforeseen circumstances, which we will all continue together. GO for it. Whatever it is. Reach for your dreams in life and love and make the impossible happen, because it can happen and it WILL happen. Come from a place of yes and it’s yours for the taking. Thank you so much for your love and support. And stay tuned, you haven’t seen the last of me. There are many amazing things to come. I love you all and am so lucky to have you in my life! PS: New York City is still my playground. . ♥️xo♥️ . B
