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 AllThingsRH.com 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.
