Bethenny Frankel's Real Housewives of New York co-stars ripped her to shreds during their heated reunion taping, but the current cast members aren't the only ones who aren't fans of her right now! In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, former housewife Kelly Bensimon slammed Frankel!
“A lot of bad things are happening to Bethenny, but that does not give her the right to be a mean b***h to other people," Bensimon, 50, told Radar at WEtv’s party at the Skylar in NYC to celebrate season 6 Braxton Family Values!”
As fans know, the drama between the two reignited earlier this month when Frankel told fans on Twitter that all of the cast members to leave RHONY, aside from her, were fired.
But Bensimon clearly wasn’t having any of that, as she responded, “Dear #RHONY fans. I’m obsessed with facts. I was not fired. Bravo is a business. We made a deal which I agreed to. I apologize for any of the ladies who speak without facts. I got you."
“I don’t like when people do a disservice to the fans by lying," Bensimon told Radar. "Bethenny is like the last word on everything that happens at Bravo. Bravo can do that. They don’t need to have her do PR for them."
Radar recently reported that the 47-year-old Skinny Girl mogul is planning to quit RHONY after the tragic overdose death of on-again, off-again boyfriend Dennis Shields — a decision that Bensimon fully supports!
“I just want her to relax and take care of her daughter and settle in a little bit," she said. "Maybe taking a step away from Housewives would be good for her."
