Bethenny Frankel is headed toward a new reality.

The TV star is leaving “Real Housewives of New York City” again in order to explore her “next chapter,” she announced in a statement.

“It’s time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy and my production partnership with Mark Burnett, producing and starring in shows which represent a shift in the conversation for women,” Frankel said in the statement obtained by the Daily News.

“With the changes in modern culture, I want to highlight the strength, confidence and unstoppable power that women have.”

Frankel, 48, was an original cast member on the Bravo reality series when it began in 2008. She left the show in 2010 but returned in 2015 and spent the past five seasons as part of the show’s main cast.

“My experience at Bravo has been an incredibly magical ride,” she said. “I am so grateful to them for highlighting my entrepreneurialism and allowing me to pave the way for many women to achieve their goals. I am excited for my future. The best is yet to come.”

The show recently concluded its 11th season.

Luann de Lesseps and Ramona Singer are the only other original stars of “Real Housewives of New York City” who were part of the main cast last season. Jill Zarin has made guest appearances in recent years.
