Bethenny Frankel may know it all but it turns out she’s not a fan of a tell-all.

The former Real Housewives of New York star slams the new Real Housewives tell-all book, “Not All Diamonds and Rosé,” for “trashing women.”

“I think we need more stories about women trashing women…Or….we can publish a book about it? Is that a good idea? #2021 PS. I’ve had my regrettable moments but capitalizing on our weaknesses? That’s “rich”….literally #WomenSupportingWomen lol,” Bethenny tweeted on October 25. 

A fan then asked Bethenny if Andy Cohen is getting a cut of the Bravo-approved book.

“Andy is getting a cut from it, no?” a fan asked.

Bethenny replied, “No clue.”

She then notes that she was “approached” to participate in the book but declined the offer.

“I vaguely remember being approached about it & taking a hard left…but I don’t know. It just keeps coming up. Yay for them but every day from me to Carole to Kelly to Teresa to Danielle to heather to Sonja etc. Nobody gets out without paying the bill…” she added.

The Skinnygirl mogul previously slammed the claims made in the book by her former friends and RHONY costars.

I keep receipts. From talent to execs to producers to cast-offs, people can’t resist talking, if there is a day I reveal contracts,$ #s, lawyer emails & #mentionitall will be interesting. I’m a vault & the powers that be rely on my secret-keeping. You know it @justbpodcast,” Bethenny tweeted on Oct 19. 

Meanwhile, Jill Zarin is taking some major digs at her former BFF in said book.

In an excerpt of the book, Jill says Bethenny was a “nobody” and “couldn’t see a cupcake” during the early seasons of RHONY. She also sides with Bethenny’s arch-nemesis Kelly Bensimon and her infamous “I’m here up here, you’re down there” diss.

“By the way, at the time, Kelly was right. Kelly Bensimon was a supermodel and Bethenny Frankel couldn’t sell a cupcake in a grocery store. Honestly, she was a nobody,” Jill quipped.
