Bethenny Frankel Carole Radziwill Sonja Morgan The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Heather Thomson Says Bethenny Frankel Used Carole Radziwill Plus Accuses Luann de Lesseps of Being ‘Fake’

HOLLA! Heather Thomson is spilling some major tea about her former Real Housewives of New York co-stars.

During an appearance on the Out in the Wild podcast, Heather dished on Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill‘s very public falling out. Heather believes that the SkinnyGirl mogul had ulterior motives when she struck up a friendship with the socialite. Heather also opened up about her rocky friendship with co-star Luann de Lesseps.

The former Real Housewives of New York star admits she had doubts about Bethenny and Carole’s off-screen friendship despite their strong bond on the show. Heather says she always felt Carole was more invested in the friendship than Bethenny.

‘That’s my opinion,” Heather explained. “Bethenny’s avenue was very clear. Who was she going to be friends with on the show [when she returned?”]

According to Heather, the RHONY cast was not happy when Bethenny returned for season 7, leaving the SkinnyGirl mogul with very few options on who to align with on the show.

“It wasn’t going to be [Ramona Singer], and Luann and [Sonja Morgan], who all didn’t like her… They were so upset that she was coming back. They were not excited. They didn’t like her,” Heather said.

This is when Heather says, Bethenny set her sights on Carole.

“Carole is a socialite. She really truly rubs elbows with the rich and famous,” she explained. “They had some like friends, so it was an obvious friendship for the show. I, in my heart, don’t believe Bethenny ever intended to have some sisterhood with Carole. I really don’t.”

While Heather immediately questioned Bethenny’s intentions, Carole felt that their newly formed friendship was “genuine.”

Meanwhile, during the interview, Heather also revealed her issues with former co-star Luann

Heather admits she wasn’t surprised by Luann’s Christmas Eve arrest in December 2017.

“I wasn’t surprised. I really wasn’t surprised because Luann, in my opinion, has been playing on the yellow for a really long time,” Heather confessed.

The Yummy Tummy founder went on to reveal her biggest gripe with Luann.

“I like Luann. I’ll see her. I’ll give her a hug. My hang-up with her on the show was that she was fake. She didn’t show her true self. I liked the partying rockstar partier Luann, hanging from the Chandelier Luann,” she explained.

During their time on the RHONY, Luann and Heather created quite a good friendship; however, their friendship unraveled as quickly as it started.

Looking back, Heather says that Luann never considered her a friend. Heather claims that Luann threw their friendship in the trash for a storyline on the show.

“LuAnn was my friend. LuAnn sat and like laid in the bed between my husband and I. She would come to my house after filming; my kids would wake up. She would hug them, but it was a show for her,” she said. “I was never her friend. It’s the same with Bethenny and Carole. I feel the same way. I was never her friend, but she was mine.”

The Real Housewives of New York will return to Bravo for season 12 in early 2020.
