Bethenny Frankel, star of The Real Housewives of New York, opened up about everything in her life and pertaining to the RHONY on a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. She discussed the show, her fellow castmates, her late fiancé, her new man, where she stands with RHONY alum Carole Radziwill, and her custody battle. Bethenny has been going through a lot lately and she shared about it all!
In an episode of RHONY that aired last month, Ramona had harsh words about Bethenny’s late fiancé, Dennis Shields. She criticized Dennis who was found dead in his Trump Tower apartment in August of 2018 from a suspected overdose. Ramona said on the show, “How smart can Dennis be? I mean, he was on drugs.” Before the episode aired, Ramona did apologize to Bethenny about it. Ramona said she felt really bad and that she cringed when she watched it. Bethenny recently opened up about it on WWHL.
Bethenny said, “It was in really poor taste. It was actually fairly despicable, that would be a pretty bad word. People come up to me and say that over the course of 10 years she’s done some pretty nasty things, but that was by far the worst.” Bethenny added that Ramona did apologize. She said, “I said, ‘I don’t know what to say.’ She said, ‘There is nothing to say.'” Bethenny said that Ramona told her that she had asked the show to leave out the comment. Although it was hurtful, Bethenny said she isn’t harboring resentment towards Ramona.
Bethenny said, “I’m not angry, because I don’t feel anger anymore the way I used to in the show. You can’t live it. I’ve been doing it for so long.” Bethenny feels like Ramona is bashing her every episode. She said, “It’s bad. And the thing is, she’s done it nonstop. Every single episode there’s another swipe, another slam.”
Bethenny also opened up about her new relationship. She shared, “He’s incredible, he’s a beautiful human being inside and out. Yes Bryn knows him, loves him, they’re very similar people.”
She’s currently in an intense custody battle with her ex-husband, Jason Hoppy. Andy asked how long it would be until it was over, and Bethenny replied, “I think in the near future, not so long.”
Has she spoken to RHOA alum Carole Radziwill? Yes! Carole did reach out to Bethenny when Dennis died. Bethenny explained, “She sent a card, and I actually ran into her recently and we had a brief moment. She had a dream about me the night before. Her in-law, her deceased husband’s mother passed away and I sent her a text when it happened a couple weeks ago. So it was just clean, which is the best way.”
Bethenny also shared her thoughts about the RHOA drama. She answered a bunch of questions about what she would do if she was holding a peach on the RHOA instead of an apple on the RHOA. Watch in this video:
This was an entertaining episode of WWHL. I’m loving that the RHONY is back on right now!
