Bethenny Frankel is reacting to the season 12 premiere of the Real Housewives of New York.
In an interview with Extra TV, Bethenny revealed what it was like to hear her former c0-stars talk smack about her following her exit from the show.
“The beginning of the show was the proverbial middle finger to me,” Bethenny admitted. “The women have definitely had some unpleasant things to say about me.”
She added, “I wish them well.”
Not surprisingly, the NY Housewives were gobsmacked and confused and made their opinions known.

Bethenny also suggested that the ratings for RHONY were down following her exit.
“The ratings overall in television have never been higher, and perhaps the ratings on ‘Real Housewives’ aren’t doing well because it’s sort of not maybe the content that is inspiring people to do what they need to do right now,” Bethenny said. “Or maybe they want to watch the news or something uplifting or some way to pay it forward.”
However, a rep for Bravo tells PEOPLE that the season 12 premiere numbers were “very similar” to the season 11 premiere ratings.
“You could argue even more people showed up intentionally to watch RHONY this year,” the rep explained.
The Real Housewives of New York airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET
