Bethenny Would Attend LuAnn’s Wedding For An Appearance Fee


Bethenny Frankel is sick and tired of talking about LuAnn de Lesseps and her husband to be Tom D’Agostino. Frankel recently revealed that she hasn’t spoken to LuAnn since the dramatic RHONY reunion.

“No, I haven’t strangled her and I haven’t spoken to her, so she’s still alive and I hope she is happily engaged. And no I haven’t spoken to her,” she told PEOPLE.

However, Frankel revealed she doesn’t have any hard feelings towards LuAnn. “I’m not really upset with her because I wasn’t really that surprised by her bad behavior,” she explained. “The truth is not Luann’s very good friend. So, I’m not really that surprised. I’m not angry. There have been people that I’ve been on the show with before that I was very angry at and was just like, ‘I can never speak to them again’ and I don’t feel like that with Luann because I just don’t expect that much from her.”

Even though Bethenny is not invited to the wedding, Bethenny did reveal what would make her attend the couple’s nuptials. “I would go to Luann’s for a very steep appearance fee,” Bethenny said. “I would gladly sponsor the wedding with alcohol. And I will gladly take – now because I’m sponsoring the wedding – a discounted appearance fee.”

Expect nothing less from this horrible person. Says it all about what a crappy friend Bethenny is. Luann, run. This girl is evil.

did you not understand she was joking? lol She’d go to the wedding if she were paid to go, as if she’d be invited anyway… she knows she won’t be invited, that’s called a joke, at some point when prople ask you the same question over and over angain about someone’s wedding you don’t really care about, you’d make jokes and make fun of it. Luann is actually the horrible person in this cast.

How about she just says, “I have not been invited” if she is asked if she will attend. Maybe not very funny, but then neither is her almost stalker like obsession with Lu.

Bethanny is the smartest, wittiest and funniest of them all. I think her comments are brilliant (and yes, of course they were said in jest)

I’m not sure she was 100 percent joking

Run Bethenny. We know you say the truth, even if others don’t like it. Luann spreads lies, and then covers it up by more lies. Yeah, in Heather Thompson’s first appearance with Bethenny she said “Aren’t you going to at least buy her a car for helping you start SG!! Showing the truth about the lies Luann was telling everyone who would listen. You go Bethenny, and get that appearance fee. You said you were donating it to one of your charities, so it’s all good.

I love B cause she’s true to form and never disappoints.

I laughed so heard when I read this. Honestly, we know Luann’s wedding is going to be made for TV.

This truly was funny. Yep, it is gonna be televised and Tom & Luann should send us all a nice little check to encourage us to watch it. LOL

Bethenny has a way with words. She makes me laugh.

Me too Aunt Bee. We all know that she doesn’t need the money!!!!!

Well, Bethenny did say at the reunion that she was no longer going to try to be tactful and kind where it concerns Luann. She agonized over that decision, and was bashed for it, just like she knew she would be! It seems to me that the fact that this is reality TV is forgotten. They get paid to show their lives. They either keep it completely private, or decide to share it. They don’t get to share but only show the parts they think make them look good, it’s one or the other. I see the answer somewhere as… Read more »

Bethenny …”tactful and kind”…okay.
While you (and Bethenny) want to rewrite the past and make this a “kill the messenger” thing, most of the viewers have not forgotten all the other intentionally cruel and nasty things Beth said and did this season…
Answer me this…what was Bethenny’s story line this season?

Since she doesn’t have to “create” one, it was simply her life, her business, and the little she let us see about the joy of her little girl. I do believe that is what the housewives franchise was created for, to show their actual lives. I thought it was a great season myself. NY, NJ and BH are the only ones I watch now.

We see only what she wants us to see. Her “story” is selling her products and her very strong “opinions” about everyone else’s life…Jules is special ed , Dorinda is the Village Idiot, John is a fat, sweaty, baby, Sonja is a drunk, Lu is a whore. To Bethenny and her fans, it is “funny” to degrade and humiliate others. To me, and many others, it isn’t.

I agree apple, sorry 3D but I liked B last season, just not sure what has happened to her or maybe she has always been like this and kept it hidden! Xoxo

I don’t know either, Suze…I used to like her, too…but now when re-watching some of the older shows, I see a lot of things that I missed. She has a HUGE ego, and no matter what the occasion, she is always the only person in the room she cares about…everyone else plays a supporting role…. or they find themselves at the receiving end of her savage sense of “humor.”
Imagine living with that everyday.

I couldn’t have someone like her in my life at all! I’m not keen on any of the NY housewives these days, didn’t gives Jules much of a chance as because of B I gave up watching. So it’s just the clips here and elsewhere, that’s more than enough for me. You could well be right about her previously, I will take your word as I couldn’t be bothered to watch old seasons. I watched them when they were on and that was enough! She seems to get away with it because of her relationship with Andy.

Not to worry, Suze, our opinion’s of a bunch of strangers have nothing to do with our opinion of each other. I adore you no matter who you like or don’t like on housewives, this is simply a good place to me because we met here, you and me and B and others who likely don’t wish to be named. Besides, if everyone agreed, this would be a boring place to visit. I learn a lot from others here, sometimes I can’t see what they see and sometimes it is the way it is said that makes it impossible to… Read more »

Me too ! Xoxoxo

See that’s why I have obvious trouble with B as well like many others; her d e l i v e r y. Don’t you find it curious that there are only certain people in life like Bethenny who seem to get away with serious ridicule but…..if it came from someone pedestrian say like me ? I’d probably find myself totally friendless and ostracized. Why is that? I honestly don’t have the answer only guesses. I have a sister who up until 2 yrs ago when I distanced myself from her, that got away with it her whole life. She’s… Read more »

You are the least pedestrian person I have seen in a long time. Everyone would adore you. 🙂 I see Bethenny and others on this show saying they are going to find a softer way, and I see it too. She came from a deeper place of trauma than most, so has farther to rise. I believe she is dong her best, another thing that I see as a soul brightening experience to watch. I am so glad you said all that, tired tho it makes one, because it was your truth. MY Brother died the other day, he was… Read more »
(((((Oh 3D)))) I’m so so sorry sweetheart about your brother♥️ I’m so so very sorry. He served our country, bless him and my thanks to him for doing so. What hell to go through for us all and I pray for his passing and peace. And mostly for you and all his loved ones left behind missing him. I understand. It gets better day by day as you know only too well. All of this stuff we chatter about on here does put it into perspective. And I cut a lot of people a lot of slack in life everyday… Read more »
Thanks so much, MIss Moneypenny! Your condolences here proves how real we all are, how we share real life & how we truly care for one another. Having differing opinions about HW is blog fodder, and fun usually, sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes maddening, but mostly just discussion on our viewpoints, which I enjoy, even, believe it or not, when I totally disagree. The way in which someone speaks their opinion tells me more about who they are than the actual opinion, and likely visa-versa with the way I express myself. I have learned so much here, about what it means to… Read more »
Of course of course ! we are friends and we understand differing opinions! Opinions are just exchanges of thought for mercy sakes, evolved peoples and friends get that;) I think …( oh here we go with my fibro muddled philosophical brain lol…..’agAIN’…., and I’m sincere when I say that I can’t seem to write my thoughts down clearly as I used to, fact. It’s super frustrating.) Anywho, I’ll try and be short and clear ;). I grew up in a home where politics and religion were argued constantly and at a very young age. Through watching I learned to see… Read more »
I can’t grow Cosmo’s here, they mold and fall over, and I refuse to stake ANYTHING. If it can’t thrive, it’s outa her. I do trim the top of other plants that tend to flop, like Succulents, a few times during Spring, and that makes their stems strong, and extends bloom. I love your description of opinions….yay. Very nice way to look at it. Texussgal has a neat way of expressing herself too. I will have to tell her. We had the Memorial for my Daughter today, even tho it’s really tomorrow, and included talk of my brother. I got… Read more »

Sweetie, I am so very sorry about your brother! Take care of yourself you need to! Xoxoxoxox

Good afternoonie dear Suze! I hope you’re having a good day today! Guess what I discovered!? KFC’s…. (that’s the Colonel’s Kentucky Fried Chicken here in the states, you know that right?) special spice and herb recipe! Eeeeeyawwwwww Just mixed em up a while ago and they SMELL JUST LIKE IT. I can’t wait to fry up the chicken for dinner and test it out. I’ll let ya know 😉 ♥️❌⭕️

Ooh yum! My sons favourite from years ago, we took them to Barcelona and ended up in KFC as it was his turn to choose! I fancy your apple pie! I made 20 red velvet cup cakes with cream cheese frosting last week to take to the hospital, they were very excited! Any suggestions for pears we have so many on the tree this year?

Oh Susie if my dad was still on earth I’d ask him for his ‘recipe’ for pear cordial it would knock the stockings right off you. It was soooooo good. *hic* I’ll have to ask him in my dreams I’m sure he’ll come through 😉 xoxoxoxox meanwhile I’d make an upside down pear cake as you would with pineapple yah?

I hadn’t thought of that! What a good idea, my brother is coming in two weeks for a few days I will make one then. Pear upside down cake hmmmmmm! Pear cordial sounds good too!

Barcelona was the first place in Europe I travelled. It was unbelievable. It was a few months before the Summer Olympics were held there. Oh, the memories…. 🙂

Thanks Suzy. I will, you do the same my dear friend. Love and more love. HH 🙂

Thank you Suze. Sorry it took days to say. I had been off the blog a few days, and as you know I only read a few pages and though I comment regularly and at length, it is only on a few pages. So, anyone who doesn’t want to read me has a lot of choices where my name doesn’t appear. My Brother was a great guy. He met my kids each the day they were born. Introduced himself. Those are the memories that comfort me. The kids couldn’t say “Uncle Michael” very well at first, so they would run… Read more »

Lol…but you feel better, don’t you? It helps just to get it out sometimes. Good post.
“It IS an issue, it DOES matter, it HURTS people”. My friend says “we don’t have to share every single thought that pops into our heads”….and I try to live by that. I don’t think it is inadvertent with Beth, though…I think she is aware, she just doesn’t care …in fact, I think she intentionally hurts others…because they don’t matter to her.

Hello apple! And speaking of, I’m making an apple pie today woot! Yes I feel better and yes I think ah shoot I don’t wanna say it but damn it yeah I think B at times doesn’t give a shit. I don’t give a shit sometimes either though, and I’ve been known to call my husband a pretty unprintable name or two. Or three. Or…..

Yum. Apple pie…and the perfect time of year. I have Celiac…so baking is a challenge…I have been trying to perfect a good pie crust for a few years, and not happy with anything yet. But I will keep at it. I do love to cook…and clean. I know….a throwback. I tell my friends I am actually a Hobbit, happiest at home with my books, and my quilting, and my art…and in my own little Shire.

Listen apple, I’m outside now doing chores so I’m not near my recipe box but if you seriously want to try a new great pie dough I can help you out ! I’ll check in later this eve. 🙂

Yes. Please.

This is the site that I made my last pie crust and it was the bomb. The cake flour makes a huge difference, good luck and happy baking! This woman Helen knows pastry I follow her 🙂

And apple? I’m in love with my vacuum. I’m a hobbit too and a clam, happy as a clam in my hobbit habitat. bloop!

Lol…Thanks, M…That does look like a good one. I have “Bookmarked” it and I will try it for the holidays. Celiacs have a sensitivity to wheat, so I am trying to figure out a good mix of different flours that will turn out flaky…so far, pretty tough…but I keep on trying…because I do love me some pie. I like to vacuum, too…it is like meditation for me. Good thing…because I have German Shepherds… and it is required.

Tonight I was watching my other guilty pleasure – the Food Network, lol – and Bethenny was on “beat Bobby Flay” as a guest judge. She is also a producer on the new “Food Porn” show on the FYI network I believe. Sounds like she is getting into other tv opportunities regardless of whether she returns to RHONY or not.

Of course she would, the same way when she dipped out of hanging with the rest of the girls on the Miami trip out of sorrow for being the bearer of bad news to Luann… when in truth she was actually holed up at the Mandarin Oriental on Brickell Key, furiously negotiating a sweet a$$ back end deal with Shed Media in exchange for dropping that bomb on camera. Allegedly. Luann is less than smart or wise for going through with this farce of a wedding, but it doesn’t change the point that Bethenny Frankel is Niccolo Machiavelli’s demon spawn.

I agree, Bon. This one takes the “farce” of reality tv to whole new level of destruction. I am curious to see what Bravo is going to do with all this. Many many viewers found this season “disgusting” and her intentionally cruel treatment of other cast members uncomfortable to watch…and definitely not “funny”. There is something wrong with her.

I agree with you apple and Bon! Unbelievable season, glad I gave up half way through!

I can’t watch it again if Bravo rewards her, Suze…Bethenny’s behavior was the absolute last straw for me. If they bring her back, I think they should have to pay anyone who films with her 2 million dollars, instead of paying her.

That’s why I gave up. Her behaviour was bullying and I hate the use of that word but it applies to her.

I like the Melbourne girls, tho! And I’ve just found out about RH of Auckland. They have their own version of LVP but she’s more of a kitty kat collector than little pups. She’s hilarious! Hugs, Suze! xo

Hope we get it soon! Xoxo

I have always believed these shows are puppeteered and they’re meant to be derisive and to get the audience engaged in a dog fight. It’s disgusting really. It’s a badly cloaked spinoff of Survivor. Only these are real women with blood and guts spilling. And it plays like a fun pillow game upon the start at a sorority house gone feral. It’s time for Bravo to stop wagging the dog at this point. It’s gone way past fun sport anymore.

Excellent description, Ms. M.

Thanks apple:) and I’m trying to get my name altered to Miss M. as I type, it’s so much easier isn’t it?

I like Miss Moneypenny…I am just showing respect.

It doesn’t matter what you change your name to you will always be sexy Miss Moneypenny. Miss M will be easier for you! Xoxox

I’d very much like to see proof of that, Bon V. I guess that means the surgery, fibroids, hemorrhaging and the entire illness was a sham too? That was the reason she decided not to go to Palm Beach in the first place, & it was made before the texts. Unless you can prove that isn’t the case either? I do like that you seem to have inside information on certain parts of the modeling & fashion industry. Do you also have friends, or people in the industry at Bravo and Evolution that tell you the inside scoop? Wow. I… Read more »
Hey there! Sorry I didn’t answer sooner. First free weekend after a bit.. But 3 D, I gotta bone to pick with you, Sis: where did you see me imply that Beth’s illnesses were a sham, lol? Never said it, and never implied it, because I don’t believe that at all. I think historically we’ve all seen on this site that I am generally one to empathize when a Housewife falls ill. If anything I was weirded out by Bethenny’s itty bitty bikinis this trip considering her poor lady parts were in the midst of a ravaging Crimson Tide (shudder!)… Read more »

Oh, I see. Like the “insiders” and “someone close to the crew” stories. OK, thanks, got it.

The difference being that I’m not remarking on anything more than two degrees of separation from myself, though generally I prefer to keep it to one. Top of the morning to everyone out there!

Very interesting…so Bethenny was handed the incriminating info about Tom by the producers, because they knew she would be willing to “toy” with Lu for the extra 3 episodes…and she used the opportunity to negotiate a little something for herself. Yup. That’s our girl. But what do you think she got in return?


But we have to wait a bit to see if 1. She’s accepted her contract for next year, and 2. for any tv venture she does next year associated with Left Field Entertainment where she stands on the production hierarchy.

She’s a stone-cold killer alright…and I’m generally a rah-rah cheerleader for strong business women, but Bethenny is dropping the ball with knowing the difference between being feared in a leadership position, and being hated. One cannot continue to be effective with the latter.

CORRECTION: I meant any production NOT associated with Left Field entertainment. That clarification is very important.

I am very interested in how this “reality” business all works, and I appreciate you pulling back the curtain just a little bit. So…one more time…”allegedly”, someone on staff handed Beth the hot potato of Tom kissing another woman, and she basically said “I could to it…but what’s in it for me?”…. and because the producers wanted to get the most mileage possible out of the gift Tom gave them, they negotiated a deal which gave Bethenny even more power in the future…and then, once she got what she wanted, she was fed the gory details, and she went in… Read more »

Once again I agree apple! It’s just too much now!

Hey, Apple. Thanks for prefacing with “allegedly”, ha. VERY important. So I will respond to paragraph one, “ALLEGEDLY. YES.” But let’s hold off to see in what capacity she is awarded in terms of an official title…on any production, not just RHoNY or not related to her deal at Left Field. Re: paragraph 2 & 3, after a certain number of seasons and jockeying for the position, a particular Housewife on any given franchise will emerge as a front-running favorite and as such, they always wield more influence because they do the heavy lifting that brings in the viewership and… Read more »

Who had the bad behavior? Pot–meet kettle

Absolutely the biggest C U Next Tuesday.

Everyone is all mad because Bethenny is so much smarter than the other HWs and shows them for being as small as they really are. Did she lie? Nope.

Time will tell who is smarter, Christopher….
Karma is a an even bigger bitch than Bethenny.

Gotcha on that Apple

She is already getting back some of what she sends out, Amy…on her SiriusXM Radio Show on RadioAndy she spent 2 hours every week saying whatever the hell she wanted about the other cast members… none of whom were there to defend themselves…like Dorinda and John and Lu all do coke….Jules’ is broke…and their Hampton’s house is ugly and in foreclosure…Sonja is out passing out in bars every night. On the very last show, she was so obnoxious you couldn’t even understand her. She was reading from Lu’s Book “Class with the Countess” , snorting and laughing hysterically… all while… Read more »

Christopher you are saying she is so much smarter than the others ?? Hmmmm.. I’m not critizing you for that comment, however, I do disagree with it

Good one, ChristopherM. I so agree. Karma, if it’s real, isn’t a liar either, so she’ll be good.

Yeah, she is despised by some, but has a LOT of fans and is respected in the business world. I’ve done some reading, and she runs circles around a lot of those who thought they were the best. Rumors are just that, rumors. It is what’s called Monopoly Money in the business world. Who can come up with the MOST damaging rumor, and see if it runs. Since Bethenny has some ugly rumors, that are many times PROVEN to be lies started about her, it seems to be prompted by good old fashioned fear and the ugly glass ceiling.

I wish she’d make up her she a “good” friend and THAT’S why she had to tell Luann, or is she not really a good friend, so she doesn’t worry about Luann? I’m not going to sweat it because it’s all made for TV anyway. I can’t be mad at her for offering to cash in on this made for tv wedding, since that is what Luann is going to do as well.

I think before telling, she agonized over it. I think after, when she got told off for it, and Luann lied about her, knowing it was a lie, she doesn’t feel so much as a friend.

There can’t be one person on this site who doesn’t believe that Luann is cashing in on her wedding. Bethenny doesn’t need to be there in person, she can watch it on TV like the rest of us may or may not do. I’m curious to see the dresses Lu will wear. Supposedly she has 3 in all white (which is a big laugh to me). She is doing this because Tom has never been married before……what a joke. For the lady who wrote an etiquette book, she should revisit the proper etiquette for someone who has been married and… Read more »

If she was kidding or not kidding, this little angry girl’s ego is out of control.

To cut it down to realism the photo’s were real. I’ll name names. Bethenny is the one who actually works a job, or no, really, she works at the company she built. Ramona too. They do deals all the time, this is a show with many deals. I couldn’t care any less how or when the manager was called, unless one of us here was there, no one knows what happened minus the players, and the FACT is that Tom was all over a woman at a popular bar, and “does” different women all the time, Luann just fits into… Read more »
I don’t know where we got lost 3, but it sounds like you misunderstand me in some aspects, lol. It sounds like you think that I feel somehow Luanne is not a liar and hypocrite and her man is not a jerk. Never said that. We’re actually in total agreement there. I think that last season Luann was a demon terror to Carole Radiziwill and used her to claw her way back into full time status on the show. Deplorable woman. But I can separate issues and compartmentalize. While it’s probably her karma that she looks look a plum fool…… Read more »

It’s ll good, like I said, I get it. 🙂
