Kyle Cooke calls out Bethenny Frankel’s double standard amid her interview with Raquel Leviss and reality TV reckoning against Bravo.
Kyle also calls out the hypocrisy of Bethenny Frankel making money off Raquel while criticizing Bravo for their “exploits.”
“The irony of it all: Bethenny cashing in ads as she ‘exposes bravo’s exploits; and gives Rachel ‘a voice.’ She literally has more ad spots than any other podcast I’ve ever listened to. Rachel won’t see a dime, lol,” Kyle commented on the TwoJudgeyGirls‘ Instagram account.
He then alleges that Rachel, aka Raquel, probably “had to pay her way to fly to B [Frankel] just to record this.”
“If this was a true PSA, it would be ad-free,” Kyle concluded.
Bethenny’s three-part interview with Raquel averaged 13 minutes of ads per episode. Turns out Kyle also hit the mark when he said that Racquel had to foot the bill to do Bethenny’s podcast.
“She flew herself on her own dime out west to do the interview,” a source close to the Real Housewives of New York alum told Page Six on Friday. “She has nothing to do with ads – that’s all iHeart, and iHeart generates all the ads.”
“Rachel wasn’t paid for her interview with Bethenny. Bethenny offered her an unedited long-form platform where she could speak freely. Rachel knew no other outlet would give her that freedom,” an insider shared.
Vanderpump Rules will return to Bravo for season 11 in 2024.
