Reports are surfacing that Andy Cohen and Bethenny Frankel have had a falling out because of Andy not being invited to appear on Bethenny’s new talk show, and vice-versa, Bethenny turning down appearances on Andy’s late night show Watch What Happens Live.
Radar Online is reporting that there has been a falling out and that Bethenny is snubbing Andy now that she has taken off thanks to Andy making her a household name on Real Housewives of New York and her Bravo spin-offs. An insider tells Radar, “Bethenny has basically completely snubbed Andy. He has asked her to do his show multiple times over the past year and she has refused because she wants to distance herself from the housewives franchise. Andy is very hurt by Bethenny’s actions because he made her a star by badgering Bravo to give her a spin-off which was enormously popular. Once Bethenny formally signed the deal for her own talk show with Telepictures, she kicked Andy to the curb, never to look back. Andy thought Bethenny would always be loyal to him, but he realizes he got used by her.”
Besides giving her a platform on TV, Andy has also always been a supporter of Bethenny and her business ventures, having a Skinnygirl bottle behind him on WWHL as a placement to promote her beverage line. The source adds, “He has done so much for her, and not just TV wise. During the launch of Skinnygirl Andy proudly promoted it by featuring it as a prop on his show for over two years! Yes, Bethenny is extremely talented but for her to turn her back on Andy is just disgusting. What goes around comes around, Bethenny is on top of the world right now but that might not last. Andy won’t be able to forget how quickly she ditched him once she got her own show.”
Could it be that the two are not friends anymore?!
Andy took to his Twitter today and squashed the rumors, saying, “sorry folks, @Bethenny DID invite me on her show & she’s coming on mine in a week. What else you got?”
This comes on the heels of Jill Zarin calling out Andy for playing favorites with the Housewives. Do you think this helps his claims that he does not play favorites?!
