Author and natural chef Bethenny Frankel has signed on for another season of drama on "The Real Housewives of New York City."

"I'm definitely going to do 'The Housewives' this season," Frankel tells People magazine. "It's been great... I love it. I understand we start filming in September."

The mag asked if nemesis Kelly Bensimon would reach her goal of cleaning up her image this season, to which Frankel replied, "Good luck with that. Am I helping? No."

Frankel is rumored to be working on a solo reality TV show. She says a deal is "unsigned," but suggested that she would consider doing a variety show or a cooking show.
