Bethenny Frankel Defends Calling LuAnn de Lesseps a Slut

BethennyF

During last week’s episode of the Real Housewives of New York City, Bethenny Frankel had a huge fight with LuAnn de Lesseps. Frankel called out the Countess for her partying ways, sleeping with married men and even called her a slut.

The debate carried on via Twitter. One viewer called out Bethenny for “slut-shaming,” but Frankel defended herself, saying that LuAnn never owns up to her scandalous behavior. “It’s hypocrisy shaming. This has been 8 years, a pirate, an etiquette book, a pedophile comment, lying about biz etc.,” she tweeted back.

Bethenny also followed up the criticism with a tweet saying, “This whole “slut shaming” thing is hilarious. Is there something called “douchebag shaming?””

Whose side are you on?

I thought it was about time someone polked a hole in LuAnn’s hot air balloon.

These two have had an Oil & Water thing going on for YEARS, lol. It’ll probably never be resolved or at least not with them ever ending up as best friends.

That last conversation between the two: if looks could kiiiiilllll…the tension! On national daytime TV no less. I think it’s safe to assume that they’re co-workers who get along for the sake of work.

Luann has never hidden that she likes men….and she has been very open about her life and relationships since the beginning. The things we know she has done are not that bad…so maybe she sleeps around …and gets a little hoity toity sometimes…BFD.
This take down is not about Luann’s character…this is about her fight with Carole over the chef.
Bethenny and Carole (neither of whom are faultless) are on a mission to destroy her.

I think Bethenny’s a little more self-defined than to make an entire blow-up solely about Carole’s boyfriend. She’s an Alpha woman who follows no one. The evidence is clear that there is a rocky history between Bethenny and LuAnn based on Bethenny believing she is hypocritical and puts on airs. This non-meeting of the minds goes all the way back to Season Two, with the first time Bethenny reading Lu for filth at the Badgley Mischka show – this isn’t a new thing, it’s been ongoing.

Yes. Bethenny thinks the Countess is a phony. She has made that abundantly clear..over and over…for years now. But why keep browbeating the issue. What has changed? What has Luann done lately that has Bethenny so riled up? I also don’t agree with her…and I think the last clip you posted …where Bethenny, on her show, says something about Luann’s etiquette schtick and how she wasn’t honest about her sex life and marriage…and Luann answers that she doesn’t think good manners ever go out of style and she has also has children. Bethenny says she gets it…but she really doesn’t.… Read more »
The difference is that Luann wants to talk about EVERYONE ELSE’S sex life. Sonja’s, Carole’s, Ramona’s. That’s why. And she does do that on camera. So, you want privacy, good for you, then have some etiquette and keep your mouth shut about everyone else’s PRIVATE sex life too. How ’bout that? I liked it when Luann stuck up for Bethenny against the preacher know it all, Heather, who I never COULD STAND, at the beginning of last season, which I am watching again, but this year when she would not say she was sorry to Carole, would not even allow… Read more »
They all talk about everyone else’s sex life and behavior…and Bethenny is the worst. That display on BH with Erika at her dinner party was a prime example…calling Erika “Bambi” and “a hooker slut who sleeps with old men”. Bethenny constantly judges people…and especially about their personal lives…and on camera. Most of what we think we know about Luann (and everyone else) came from Bethenny. This is not a “one-off” where she “blew”…this is who she is….and if anyone is a phony, it’s her. Bethenny uses people…Jill, Alex, Julie, Jason…she pretends to care about people as long as she needs… Read more »

And I don’t “know” what Luann does or with whom…or Sonja, for that matter…or John….and neither can you. I believe only some of what I see on Bravo…and none of what I hear. Bethenny also said (on camera) John and Dorinda snort coke. When does it stop being funny and start being the malicious and unjustified destruction of a person’s reputation ? Well, I think we are already there.

Bethenny is disgusting.. always miserable, every episode.. Her going off the way she did was so uncalled for. It never ends.. You are making your brand look so bad. She is not attractive inside or out. She is the worst hw ever,,

That was my take away. I kind of see Luann as Bethenny’s reflection of everything she hates in herself. Her reactions to Luann are too visceral to be anything but her own self-hate. Bethenny is also the. queen. of. deflection. while screaming that everyone else needs owns their shyt I don’t give two F**KS who Luann spreads her legs to, so why does Bethenny? Especially when she admits to being equally as “active” ANNNND dating a “legally” married man! Really, dumbass???

Bethenny is an accomplished liar. Remember how her “father was never in her life?” Then we see she knows all her Dad’s buddies, so well that one of them thought giving her lingerie for her birthday was appropriate! Plenty of evidence she was around her Dad quite a bit. People started producing pictures of her with him. I use to like Bethenny before her horrible talk show. She is cruel and full of herself IMO

I doubt most of what comes out her mouth lately…I just learned (from season 1) that her mother’s family was in horse racing, and her mother was an “exercise rider” at the track…which explains some of her mother’s issues with weight and also how she met Bethenny’s father and step-father. I wonder what her mother’s version of the story is…she has denied most of what Bethenny has said about her childhood in the press. She also correctly predicted that Bethenny would dump Jason because “he is too weak for her”.

I am definitely NOT on the countASS’s side. Bethany was very harsh and inappropriate to do this at a party but I agree with most of what was said. The countASS is so narcissistic she couldn’t even let Jules have a moment with her sick father or show any concern other than herself. She is a disgusting phony.

The countess would reply… ” il y a besoin d’une pour reconnaître l’autre “

The Countess of Hootersville

D’accord !

Weird that she stands by the “slut” calling when she is bringing up an etiquette book, pedophile comment and hypocrisy. If she really doesn’t have a problem with Luann banging everyone, and the real problem is hypocrisy, why call her slut? No big deal though. It’s not brain surgery, two alpha females competing for queen bee on a reality show..makes for sparks that Bravo loves 😀

The difference between the slutty countess and Bethenny is that LuAnn does what she does in the open

In any case, sluts don’t break the girl code being a slut can’t buy you class

One would think this outrageous behavior would not bode well for future business relationships. I’m quite sure it would be career suicide for most of us to continue to display lack of self control/self awareness.

Bethenny! Stop being a mean girl. You have a slutty past and current rumor is you are hanging out and flirting with a married man. You just threw him a birthday party. Watch out!

Who cares who LuAnn slept with or what she does in her private life. She’s single, she’s of age to do what she feels like doing and she’s not hurting anyone in the process. Happy that she’s engaged to a man who makes her happy. Bethenney in the mean time will grow old alone! She’s a sourpuss who is jealous of anyone who is in a happy relationship. Money does not buy money everything!!

Bethenny is a HYPOCRITE & DOUCHE BAG.

Does she think she is God —
who hands out demeaning & derogatory judgements about everyone but herself? ??

Bethenny is a bitter, angry, malicious woman!

She is NOT entertaining on tv, Bravo.

Fire Bethenny !!!

Team Countess Luann all the way !!!!!

This team is as real as LuAnns title

I do like my Bethenny but she is making it very hard this season. As soon as she laughed at Luann’s “mentor” comment, I knew. B had no right to say anything whether it was needed or not. Whether it was BS or not. Who died and made Bethenny the BS judge and executioner?! Tsk…Tsk…Tsk.. As for Luann……I’m shaking my head in disapproval…..that countess needs to go back to royalty school. She’s failing miserably. She is of-course only getting as good as she has given but B needs to rise above all that and let the lady (the countess) hang… Read more »

Team B!

Bethenny attacked Luann because she dared to say to bring up Bethenny’s shitty girl brand. She is a miserable, jealous, insecure, petty person on a good day. She is always putting people down. That shrink is not helping her. I hate that she came back to the show, her shrieky voice and obnoxious comments give me headache.

Best comment award! Xoxoxo❤️❤️❤️❤️

Being rich has made Bethenny a monster…she is out of control and out of her mind.
She is completely so full of herself. Do us all a favor and shut the fuck up, Bitch!
Has anyone noticed how Dorinda is kissing Bethennys ass?

I don’t agree with how B handled the entire argument but she is right on with her statement. Luann is a HUGE HYPOCRITE. She will never own her own behavior and then tells everyone else they act like trash. Well Lu sometimes I like and but in this case you are really a hypocrite. First before I say anything about the argument you are the rudest most disrespectful woman Jules was trying to tell you about her father who was in the hospital and all you could talk about was your hurt “FEELINGS” No countess, princess or even a common… Read more »
Bethenny’s an abusive AHOLE. Judgmental horses ASS. She sits there and insults Luanne after she says she’s trying to help Sonja. She then mocks her. She then goes over to Ramona and starts threatening to kick Luanne’s ass. She continues to assault Luanne and then creepy Carole walks in and insults Luanne’s voice. Bethenny continues to abuse Luanne and nobody tells her to knock it off. Luanne doesn’t seem to know how to extricate herself and is still trying to have the conversation. Obviously, she’s upset and doesn’t really ‘hear’ what Jules is saying about her Dad being ill. Then… Read more »

YOU ARE SUCH A LIAR BETHENNY!! Luanne didn’t come for your business, you attacked her at the table and then continued the assault for the next 20 minutes. What a paranoid POS you are. Seriously, the nastier and vile people, if they are successful, they have nothing but a bunch of sycophants around them. So don’t say you hate “phony” people Bethenny, because YOU LOVE having them kiss your ass. In a million years, this chic would never survive in most circles because they would knock her skinnygirl butt out.
