Bethenny Frankel on the RHONY Reunion: It Was Bad


Bethenny Frankel is dished about the Real Housewives of New York City reunion with her friend and co-star Carole Radziwill on her Sirius XM radio show last week.

“We just had our reunion and I think I might be joining Bernie Madoff in a jail cell. I think they might come take me away in an orange jumpsuit. I definitely did not hold back on the reunion,” Bethenny admitted, then she asked Carole, “On a scale of 1 to 10, how gangster did I get?”

Carole says, “You were a 12. I’ve never seen you so – you were OG OMG.” Frankel joked, “I texted NeNe and said ‘Sweetie, open your legs to married men because I’m comin’ in.’” She continued, “That whore comment that I retracted, I may have had it engraved on Luann’s ass. We didn’t go in the right direction, let’s just put it that way.”

So what did Carole think about the reunion? “I just felt like – this is my fourth reunion and this one more than even last year when Luann was saying such bullsh*t about me – I left this reunion feeling gross.”

Bethenny continues, “Sonja was Sonja with a side of sanity. Ramona was just Ramona, she’s fine. Dorinda did well and got away with a little bit of murder in my opinion. Luann held her cool and just sat there and let it wash over her because that’s really worked well for her. And I was… something happened at the reunion that set me off to the point that I saw red and did not come out of the flames for the whole entire day. I was on fire.”

Carole added, “It’s hard to sit there and just let some of the other cast say just a load of bullsh*t.”

Bethenny was astonished at the lies that happened this year, “People just make up anything.” Carole says that Luann does that every year, “she just makes up a story.” Bethenny adds, “This was bad. I’ve never had anyone accuse me of anything like that. It was bad. We can’t get into what it was, but it was bad.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Why does B feel she is entitled to do and say whatever she wants. Life isn’t like that, sometimes it pays to keep it zipped, So B a bit of advice Zip it!

    • Suze☕️

      Just to add Carole stop brown nosing it!

    • Daisy

      Hi Suze probably because Andy is crazy about b. I think he would be her if he could

      • smh

        Ewww… Bethenny is not attractive, inside or out, why would he want to be her? I’m sure that she will disgust people even more (if that’s possible) with her vulgarity, anger, and her hypocritical, judgmental, psychotic statements and behavior. She really makes Brandy Glanville look like a well behaved, sane, Saint..

      Thats right Suze. Bethenny lives by her own rules and there is no filter on her mouth whatsoever. She can be very funny but spectacularly mean!

      • Suze☕️

        Totally agree, A day was beside himself when she agreed to come back, the last half of last season I liked her but had to give up watching this season xoxoxoxoxoxox❤️❤️❤️❤️

        • Suze☕️

          Typo a day s/b Andy!

    So what’s new? same old thing. Wish they would be a little more original adding some love & peace & a little bit of being adult.

  • DebBrenn

    This blog does make me want to see it, though.

    The season was kind of crappy, it needs a new cast

    Bethanny has to humiliate, attack and go for the jugular the way she has to go to the bathroom everyday. She just doesn’t feel happy and right with herself if she doesn’t do what she calls telling the truth about other people. The biggst problem for Bethanny is how much she lies to herself. She is such a destructive, hostile person and her yes man buddy Carole is truly pathetic the way she runs around after her agreeing with everything she says and does.

  • Annie

    I am really starting to think that Bethanny has some mental issues. She has to attack. It is not normal. She refuses to look at anything in her life, yet attacked others for things she does. Something is wrong here.

    • What did she do that she attacked someone else for doing? I sincerely want to know so I can go look at it, if you wouldn’t mind taking a minute to fill me in. 🙂

  • Giovanna

    I wish Bethenny would just get a good therapist and take care of her own chit. Quit using your upbringing as your excuse. Obviously she can’t be happy just being a mom and successful businesswoman. She may never find what she’s looking for and should try being grateful for what she has.

  • Michelle

    I think I can safely say that most of the fans are having a hard time with Bethenny this season. What is even more surprising is that if she was paying even the tiniest bit of attention to the dialogue from the fans, she should have reigned herself in a little better at the reunion. Again like everyone says….why does she think she has a right to be the judge, jury and executioner?!

    I just love B! RHONY #1 fan favorite!

  • B has been a little mean this year – more so than previous years. I still like her. Carole on the other hand needs to leave. Her and B have a close relationship, but Carole never reins B in, when she could. LuAnn is so happy that you hate to dump on her, but she needs to pay attention to what is being said about Tom. Dorinda, whom I really like, is starting to be the pot-stirrer instead of the negotiator she started out to be. Too bad! What can you say about Ramona – she is what she is. Jules need to go also. Just plain weird.
