Bethenny Frankel Clarifies Her WWHL Statements; Denies That Lisa Rinna and Kyle Richards Plotted to Takedown Lisa Vanderpump; Plus, Says Kyle and Rinna Had NOTHING To Do Radar Online Leak

Bethenny Frankel is shutting down accusations that she plotted with Lisa Rinna, and Kyle Richards, to take Lisa Vanderpump down during season 9 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

During Wednesday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Bethenny opened about communicating with Rinna about how to handle going head to head with Vanderpump.

“As I said to Lisa by text, I don’t know all the back story because it’s intense and there is a lot of back story. If you’re gonna take a shot at that V you better not miss,” Bethenny said before clarifying that she was talking with Rinna about Vanderpump.

Bethenny continued, “I said to Lisa Rinna, you gotta land it. If they’re trying to put her in the ground, there’s one finger moving you better make sure she’s dead – and she ain’t.”

Many fans interpreted Bethenny’s comments as Rinna plotting on how to take Vanderpump down.

Now, the Real Housewives of New York star is clarifying her comments and is setting the record straight.

Bethenny first clarified that she is truly friends with Rinna and Kyle and knows for a FACT that they had NOTHING to do with the Radar Online leak about #Puppygate.

“I was on @BravoWWHL last PM & @andy asked me about the “dog.” I’m real friends with @lisarinna bc she shoots straight no chaser. I text her & my friend @kylerichards all the time & FACT; they had ZERO to do with any items leaked. That much I know,” Bethenny tweeted following her appearance on WWHL.

The SkinnyGirl mogul went on to say that the “takedown accusations are absurd.”

“Furthermore, any “takedown” accusations are absurd. Sometimes, a group gets fatigued from a castmates’ actions & communicates on & off camera. @KyleRichards is real friends with @LisaVanderpump & I was expressing that LVP is not one to take that lying down,” Bethenny added.

Bethenny also defended getting involved in the RHOBH drama telling fans, “I see my friends being trolled & I would rather it be me than them. Maybe I have thicker skin.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
