Earlier this month, Bethenny Frankel, along with powerhouse lawyers Mark Geragos and Bryan Friedman, sent a legal letter to Bravo/NBC Universal alleging “grotesque and depraved mistreatment,” including “plying cast members with alcohol while depriving them of food and sleep,” “denying mental health treatment to cast members” and “covering up acts of sexual violence.”

Now, Real Housewives of Miami alum Lea Black and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss are speaking out about Bethenny Frankel’s campaign against Bravo.

Lea, who appeared in seasons 1-3 of the Real Housewives of Miami, is shocked that Bethenny Frankel is going after her former employer.

“Bethenny likes to be the hero,” Lea told Page Six. “But she should be grateful. She made a ton of money and became very influential because of her association with Bravo. I can’t even wrap my head around anyone being so ungrateful for the opportunity that they want to sue the person that gave it to them.”

Meanwhile, Kandi Burruss, who has continuously starred on the Real Housewives of Atlanta for the last 14 years and has starred on multiple Bravo spinoff shows, told Entertainment Tonight she has no plans to join Bethenny Frankel’s cause.

Kandi said: “It wouldn’t make any sense for me to be a part of that. To me, if I’m working with somebody, and I feel like they’re not doing something that they should be doing, I address it right then.”

For the last several weeks, Bethenny Frankel has urged reality stars to unionize and join the SAG-AFTRA strike.

“Hollywood is on strike. Entertainers are fighting for residuals, and no one will promote anything. Why isn’t reality TV on strike?” Bethenny declared on Instagram in late July.

“I myself have generated millions and millions of dollars in advertising and online impressions being on reality TV and have never made a single residual,” she explained. “So, either I’m missing something, or we’re getting screwed too.”

She then noted that while reality TV stars are often considered the “losers” of Hollywood, they were the ones who “provided all of the entertainment” to TV viewers during the yearlong Writers Guild of America strike in 2007.

“It’s complete and total bulls–t,” she added. “It just occurred to me that everyone is talking about actors, and we don’t get paid s–t.”
