Bethenny Frankel’s return to the Real Housewives of New York has been quite the wild ride. Despite Bethenny’s attempts to stay away from the drama she still found herself in the middle of it.
Recently the Skinny Girl creator opened up about returning to reality TV and interacting with the new and old Housewives. Surprisingly enough Bethenny has some very strong opinions about the difference between the old-school Housewives and the newer ones.
Bethenny revealed, “That’s the difference between old-school Housewives and newer Housewives. Newer Housewives sometimes think that we’re creating something. And we’re not on Days of Our Lives. This is called the Real Housewives. This is me living, and there’s a camera capturing that. This is not ‘We’re best friends because were doing a play together.’ And the newer girls don’t understand that as well as the older girls.”
Since her return to the show Bethenny says she has been constantly dealing with issues with old and new cast mates. “I’m new in the pack again and people don’t know how to deal with me,” she says. “And [they] want to either kind of be with me or work it out with me or talk to me or fight with me or do something with me. I really felt like I was the don, working out issues. Like I had people come and air their grievances with me. So I was putting out fires one at a time.”
I think Bethenny just wants to do reality TV her way, and for her that means not pretending to be BFF’s with the other Housewives right away.
