Don’t hate the player; hate the game!
Bethenny Frankel won’t apologize for having a successful, multi-faceted career.
In an interview with Access Hollywood‘s ‘Housewives Nightcap,’ the Skinnygirl mogul reacted to Carole Radziwill and Luann de Lesseps’ negative comments about her new ReWives podcast.
“I’m sorry they are having a hard time with this … it makes sense. It is already very successful. It’s an incredible idea. It’s got buzz. It’s interesting,” the Real Housewives of New York OG said.
“I can’t apologize for having great ideas and for being successful,” she continued. “I’ve tried to do that for so many years. Part of the reason I left ‘RHONY’ was having to do with feeling self-conscious about my success and the great opportunities that I have had first … and that other people have been inspired by and done themselves.”
Bethenny went on to say that Carole and Luann’s comments were “predictable.” She added that she hopes they “feel better soon.”
“Whatever your preconceived notion and expectation are of this [podcast] … it’s not that. It’s not run-of-the-mill. It’s giving everything that you want; you just didn’t request. It’s just so much inside information … that I didn’t even realize I have. Just from my ability to break this genre down and its sort of how it started,” she shared.
As we previously reported, both Carole and Luann threw shade at Bethenny’s ReWives podcast following its announcement earlier this month.
“Right, and if she s–ts on the show, that means she’s gonna s–t on us on her little podcast about the ‘Housewives,’” Luann said about Bethenny’s Housewives podcast on Friday’s episode of Danny Pellegrino’s ‘Everything Iconic,’ podcast. “It’s pretty sad and pathetic that she has to resort to ‘Housewives’ because of all of her failed pivots since the ‘Housewives.'”
The Countess called Bethenny’s latest move a “pretty desperate scenario.”
Carole, on the other hand, tweeted: “Oh lordy…how original. But she did build her brand by trashing & mocking women; specifically, the HWs & Bethenny always returns to what she does best. I mean, right out the gate, she trash-talks the other HW podcasts. Lol. Good luck to her. Some things will never change. ”
