On the season 11 finale of the Real Housewives of New York, Barbara Kavovit got caught in an unforgettable hot mic moment!

While attending her good friend Luann de Lesseps Christmas cabaret show, Baraba was overheard telling a friend that Luann “can’t really sing” a thought that many RHONY fans have said to themselves aloud.

“I don’t think she can really ever hold the show by herself,” Barbara said. “I mean she can’t really sing.”

The day after the episode aired, Barbara clarified her comments in a series of tweets and insisted that her comment was taken “out of context.”

“Hey, tweeps – I want you all to know that I actually enjoy @countessluann’s cabaret show & my comment from last night was taken out of context. I’ve seen her show 8x & would go back for more! #girlcode #countessandfreinds,” Barbara tweeted. 

One fan then encouraged Barbara not to backtrack on her previous comments but Barbara didn’t agree.

“Friends need to support one another, don’t ya think!!” Barbara replied.

This isn’t the first time Barbara’s been caught in a hot mic moment. Back during season 9, Barbara was caught bashing Luann while talking to her co-star Carole Radziwill.

When asked by Carole if she was excited for Luann’s wedding to ex Tom D’Agostino Barbara replied, “Honestly, no.”

Carole followed up by asking, “Is she excited?” in reference to the bride to be, Luann.

“Honestly…I think she has something to prove. She’d rather go through with it and get divorced than call it off,” Barbara confessed.

As many RHONY fans know Barbara filed a lawsuit to block Bravo from airing the comment she made about Luann however Barbara’s case was ultimately dismissed by a judge.

Meanwhile, Luann called Barbara’s comment “not nice” on Twitter.

“Not a nice comment from a friend @msbarbarak who loves my show? #RHONY @BravoWWHL #CountessAndFriends,” Luann tweeted. 

The Real Housewives of New York season 11 reunion starts airing on Wednesday, July 3 at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
