Bethenny Frankel Says She Tried, For Years, To Get Black Women On RHONY; Reveals She’s STILL Married To Ex Jason Hoppy Plus Dishes On What It Would Take For To Return To RHONY

Bethenny Frankel appeared on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen last Thursday, and she spilled some MAJOR tea on everything from RHONY casting rumors to her marital status and so much more!

The former Real Housewives of New York star admitted she “had a good run” on the show before revealing she had a “bone to pick” with Mr. Andy Cohen.

“I have a bone to pick with you,” Bethenny revealed to Andy. “I’m gon check you, boo.”

“[I] did refer Leah [McSweeney] and seven other people, and I’ve got the receipts,” Bethenny explained. “Not 30, I didn’t go to Harvard or nothing, but 30 ain’t 8. And she wasn’t in the mix. Jen, the casting director, emailed me and kept saying, ‘Do you have that girl’s information?’ You’re in the hot seat now, so we’ve got to be accountable.”

If you’re lost, Bethenny is saying she did refer Leah to casting, despite rumors stating otherwise, and has done the same with several other women over the years.

Andy replied, “I don’t know where I came up with 30, but you sent us Aviva Drescher. You’ve sent us names whether you’re on the show or not been on the show. Through the entire run of the show, you’ve been sending us names.”

“And several African-American women, by the way,” Bethenny pointed out.

She added, “I love you, and I love what you guys are doing, and I wanted to say that because I got messages about that.”

Bethenny later elaborated on Twitter, saying, “For years, I have submitted black women. We live in NY. This isn’t a new or innovative concept. It’s truth.”

Meanwhile, Andy then asked B: “Are you and Paul talking marriage?”

“I’m still married,” Bethenny confessed, referencing her nearly decade long divorce battle with estranged husband, Jason Hoppy.

This news stunned Andy, who responded, “You’re killing me.”

Andy also asked Bethenny the question most RHONY fans are dying to know:  Would she ever return to the show that made her famous?

“If you get my gate code and there’s a Brink’s truck full of a lot of cash, you know. It’s all about the Benjamins, baby!” she joked.

RHONY will return to Bravo in 2021.

Thoughts on Bethenny’s comments? Are you surprised Bethenny and Jason are STILL married? Do you think B will ever return to RHONY? Sound off below!
