Bethenny: Heather Likes To Get Deep Quickly


Bethenny Frankel is taking to her blog to explain why she cried while furniture shopping and to dish on the rest of this week’s episode of RHONY. Frankel says Heather comes on too strong for her and shares her opinion about the drama between Ramona and LuAnn.

Bethenny writes, “Well, the crying game has begun, so bear with me a moment because there is a LOT of laughter to come.

You know how sometimes you can confide in a stranger more easily than someone you’re close with? Well, there is a lot that people don’t know about my personal life, and let’s just say that emotions creep out in unexpected ways.

I have had a rough time, and I was particularly raw. I broke down in CB2, which I’ve renamed “Cry Baby 2.” Carole was perfect in that situation. I am not a huge hugger, either, and I just needed to let it out.

I thought Carole’s election was cute. Those pigs in blankets were awesome, but then again I’m a massive Trader Joe’s fan. Thank god she didn’t tarnish her campaign with a hors d’oeuvres lie.
Heather is very inquisitive and likes to get deep quickly. She is just curious, concerned, and a little touchy feely at times. I believe it comes from a good place. I am just guarded and not always trusting. As Dorinda says, I’m a squirrel, so really fast moves make me run. Custody conversation is very personal, and I was just not there, nor will I probably ever be.
As far as Luann commenting on my departure, I was there an hour, which is probably the longest that I would ever spend at an apartment building election party. Luckily, I had school pickup.
So Sonja’s party–Latino Show Magazine with her on the cover is pure comedy as a concept. She did look beautiful, though, and the photography was beautiful. It just seemed a little random–like me gracing the cover of Field and Stream.

Heather did fire a random shot at her though asking about Kmart. I was literally at Kmart yesterday, a store that I LOVE, but I didn’t happen to notice any full-length, red evening gowns there. That was a little slap.

The caviar dinner was a shit stirrer. Luann has not been silent about her opinions this season. It’s the anti-Countess…(a term that Bravo and the ladies will definitely adopt). Anyway, Luann definitely commented about Dorinda and John. But Ramona can be a meddler and loves to drive the getaway car while not getting dirty. Ramona definitely commented, as well, which she conveniently left out.

More to come on all of this.

P.S. Who cares who Dorinda dates? Since when do we bash people our friends are in love with or sleeping with?

I’ve been royally screwed over in relationships, but no one could have told me different. We go through our process our own way.

For all we know, John and Dorinda are soul mates. He is what she needs right now.”

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.

    I don’t understand B. She talks about this openly on a TV show but it’s inappropriate for Heather to ask about it?

    • Frances

      Totally agree. Tired of Bethany ragging on Heather that she is nosy, etc. Heather is making an effort. Maybe the subject is wrong for the time, but at least she is trying! 🙂

        I fully agree with both Frances & Cassy, each should not be so judgemental. Here we go again.

    • Well, B feels it is her right to say anything she wants about herself, in public or whatever, and maybe just a little to close to speak to someone up close. I think she said a little personal, so I am waiting to see if she then asks personal questions of others.

    I think since B is super damaged from her childhood she doesn’t accept compassion from others easily, she picks who can show her empathy and there are some she doesn’t like it from. It’s like she really feels it’s a sign of weakness so this makes me think she is threatened by Heather in some ways bc she always shuts H down when H wants to talk to get close. It’s interesting that B is heading toward friendship with Radzi, same person Heather is bff’s with.

  • After last night’s show I think a line is being drawn in the sand. I think H went overboard at the dinner table trying to pretend she didn’t care that B had torn her up so far. I think B really gets to her and she thinks B is trying to knock her off of her “Radzi” and “Mama” throne. It feels like she does the “MAMA” thing to sound to the audience, whether us or other guests, more familiar and close to others than what is real. She just would not let it go at the dinner, speaking to everyone about it and scolding Sonja and B for laughing and then trying to make it a polite joke. She annoys me.
    It seems like she thinks until she gets somewhere and sums everything up that no one else has a direction. She explains the in’s and out’s of every conversation and reaction right down to every little nuance like a therapist with a benevolent dictator undercurrent. A little too much for me and apparently for B also.
