Bethenny Frankel's not holding anything back regarding her doomed run as a talk show host.
The former Real Housewives of New York star — whose lowly-rated self-titled gabfest was put to an end last month facing the loss of 70 percent of its' audience via departing affiliates — groused to Andy Cohen on Tuesday’s Watch What Happens Live about the constraints she had to work under, in trying to appeal to a nationwide audience.
"I felt edited and diluted and a little bit controlled and I'm not really great when I'm shackled, as you know,” she told her former boss Cohen. "You have to kind of unleash the beast!"

As we previously reported, Frankel had tension building with exec producer Ellen DeGeneres regarding the stream of guests she had on the talk show, and it’s creative direction, including an order from the A-list Oscar host to not constantly regale the audience with upsetting details of her divorce.
