"If she s---- on the show, that means she is going to s--- on us on her little podcast about the Housewives," De Lesseps said while chatting with Danny Pellegrino on Everything Iconic, stating that she fully expects to be criticized on the rewatch podcast.

The RHONY star was at first surprised by the news, then speculating it was Frankel's attempt to "grab the fame of Housewives to keep her storyline going."

"She's thrown Housewives under the bus a million times. I remember at one point, she wouldn't even say the word," De Lesseps continued, saying people are not going to want to hear more from a "disgruntled Housewife."

The Countess branded it "sad and pathetic" that Frankel is doing a rewatch podcast "because of all of her failed pivots since the Housewives."

Frankel notably appeared on RHONY's first three seasons and later returned for season 7 but left for good after season 11, telling fans she was ready to embark on her "next chapter."

"It's time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy and my production partnership with Mark Burnett, producing and starring in shows which represent a shift in the conversation for women," Frankel shared in her announcement.
