'I want to explain to you that this week I made a really big decision and I had been thinking about it and going back and forth and I just decided ... when you jump you fly,' she told her Instagram followers. 'When I came on to Housewives, everyone told me not to do it and I went with my own gut.'

Bethenny went on to say that many people were sad to hear about her leaving the show before addressing her tweet from the night before. 

'I'm not newly married,' she said. 'Believe me, when there is something to tell you, I will tell you.'

She made sure to tag Ramona Singer, Luann De Lesseps, Tinsley Mortimer, Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley while saying farewell to the franchise.

Fans were taken back with the comments on marriage however, as Bethenny has waged a very bitter divorce battle with her ex and seemingly moved on with her new boyfriend, Paul.

A Bravo super fan account was quick to tweet a gif of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leaks asking 'say what now?'

One user posted a meme of Bethenny screaming 'mention it all!' — a nod to her infamous fight with Ramona where Singer accused her of sleeping her way to the top.

'Did you marry the guy you were dating? what do you mean 'I had to go' Were you forced out? that makes no sense! You're the best part of the show,' a Frankel admirer added.

Frankel and her ex have waged a very public battle for custody of their nine-year-old daughter Brynn for more than seven years since they separated.

The couple were married in grand reality tv fashion in 2010, but separated in 2012 and reached a financial settlement to their divorce in July 2016, despite the full divorce not being entirely finalized.

She has since moved on with Paul after being engaged to late ex Dennis Shields who died of an apparent drug overdose last summer.
