Luann de Lesseps Opens Up About Fight With Bethenny Frankel in Miami on RHONY

On last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York City Luann de Lesseps and Bethenny Frankel had a major fight.

While vacationing in Miami, de Lesseps was confronted by Barbara Kavovit and Tinsley Mortimer for acting selfish. Lu denied their claims and that was when Frankel had enough and went off in a big way, calling de Lesseps “insufferable.”

“It was a tough moment and I think, as we go back a long time, I think that friends do get angry at each other and they do yell at each other,” de Lesseps told ET. “If you don’t care, you don’t bother with people, right? So I thought it was a true show of her love for me.”

As far as her co-star’s opinions about her behavior, Luann admits she still doesn’t agree with a lot of them.

“I don’t think people understand how hard it was to not drink on that trip because there was a lot of drinking going on in a big way…. You know it may come off as being self-centered, but I really had to take care of me. The most important thing to me is my sobriety, so that comes first,” she shared. “It may get misconstrued as being a narcissist, but that’s not me at all and people who know me a long time [know] that’s not who I am.”

“I just think that having to take care of yourself takes a lot of energy and sometimes you don’t have anything to give,” she added.

As far as Lu’s relationship with Bethenny, she revealed that she wanted to let Bethenny get all of her anger out, which she believes has nothing to do with her.

“I didn’t say very much because I felt like [it was best to] just let her vent,” de Lesseps explained. “It was not time to, like, stand up and go after her. She had a full on breakdown.”

Where do Luann and Bethenny stand today? Lu said things have definitely gotten better.
