Bethenny Frankel LuAnn DeLesseps The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Luann de Lesseps: Bethenny Frankel Was ‘Projecting Her Own Failed Marriage Onto Me’

Crocodile tears?

Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps is calling out co-star Bethenny Frankel’s infamous season 8 crocodile tears.

Bethenny infamously broke down into tears when revealing to Luann that her fiance Tom cheated on her, however now Luann insists that wasn’t crying for her and in fact was crying for herself.

“I felt bad for her because she was crying, really, for herself,” Luann told Access Hollywood Live. “I don’t think it was really about me. She had a troubled marriage, got divorced, had a problem getting divorced. I think she was projecting, and she just started crying.”

Adding, “I was like, ‘It’s fine, I’m good, I’m a grown woman. I know what I’m doing.’”

However, if you recall Luann was visibly shaken and emotional when Bethenny broke the news about Tom’s cheating.

Luann quickly turned on Bethenny following the revelation and made it clear she was ignoring Tom’s indiscretion and was still planning on marrying him, which she did on New Year’s Eve.

The season 9 preview revealed that Bethenny and Luann’s relationship would continue to be rocky as Bethenny makes it clear she doesn’t believe Luann should marry Tom.

I think Luann is so pathetic in this interview. To claim that she was cool and calm during Bethenny reveal is such a lie and to further say Bethenny was crying for herself and not Lu is just such a lie. It’s called compassion and emotion Luann,  give it a try sometime. I know Bethenny can be an ice queen sometimes, but she can show emotion.

Thoughts on Luann’s interview? Do you think Bethenny was crying for herself or Luann? Why do you think Luann is telling a different story now? Do you think Luann was calm when Bethenny dropped the bomb about Tom cheating?
