With the new season of The Real Housewives of New York City upon us, the claws are out, especially in this new interview with Luann de Lesseps speaking about Bethenny Frankel and what happened last season on the show.
“Poor Bethenny… You know what, I felt bad for her because she was crying so hard for herself, really. [The tears] it’s not really meant for me – I think it’s issues she’s having herself,” Luann said of last year’s Berkshires explosive fight and her husband Tom’s former cheating scandal. “She had a troubled marriage, and got divorced, and had a problem getting divorced. I think she was projecting. I was like, ‘It’s fine: I’m good, I’m a grown woman. I know what I’m doing.’”
Bethenny responded to Luann’s comments on Twitter.
Disappointing.I’ve supported you this season. My sit’n has been challenging. Exploit it if it helps make you happy. https://t.co/rK6eCkG5DY

But Luann still feels this way, even on their trip this year to Mexico she felt that Bethenny couldn’t accept that she married Tom. “I’m the only one who’s actually married on the Real Housewives Of New York! ” she tells Access Hollywood. “I think they’re still getting used to the fact that I’m married, and you know what, I’m so happy, and Tom and I are great and that’s what’s important to me.”
She teases that this season the ladies still keep “insinuating” Tom is cheating. Luann insists, “It’s so not true!” She adds, “Tom is a wonderful, wonderful man, and they have nothing else to talk about but Tom and I!”
But there’s going to be plenty of more drama, including Ramona Singer’s big fight with Bethenny. “They do have a HUGE blowout. It happened at Dorinda’s house,” Luann dished. “There’s something about the Berkshires!” she jokes. “I love you Dorinda, but that house… ”
Luann also weighed in on the possibility of Bethenny reconciling with Jill Zarin and denies that she ever tried to stop that from happening in the past. “Yes, Jill is around,” Luann explains, “but there’s nothing between her and Bethenny for the moment. I can’t tell you more… ”
