Bethenny Says She Staged Intervention That Sent Luann Back To Rehab

Luann de Lesseps was absent from part one of The Real Housewives of New York reunion because of her return to rehab – and that’s where Bethenny Frankel confessed she was a part of the intervention that landed her there.

Frankel made the shocking revelation after host Andy Cohen questioned her about whether or not co-star Dorinda Medley has a drinking problem. Medley quickly warned Frankel to be careful with her answer.

“Don’t worry, I’ve been through one intervention this weekend. I’m not doing one tonight,” Frankel snapped back, referencing the Countess.

The episode was filmed within days of de Lesseps’s announcement that she had checked herself into rehab for a second time this year after her shocking Christmas Eve arrest.

Frankel continued that she was “not qualified” to respond to Medley’s questionable drinking habits, but reminded everyone of her sloppy behavior throughout the season.

Frankel brought up the embarrassing moment when Medley drunkenly dissed Frankel’s donation partner in Puerto Rico. Medley apologized the next day.

“You apologized to the wrong person! You did not know who you had offended,” Frankel reminded Medley. “I have witnessed you not remember.”

That’s when Medley, Carole Radziwill and Ramona Singer ganged up on the Skinnygirl founder for being a “labeler.”

The topic turned into a full-blown catfight, with Singer jumping out of her seat to point fingers at Frankel for not supporting her skincare line earlier in the season.

“I’m self made!” Singer said, adding that she did not grow up “rich” like Frankel.

“I own two f**king homes! Really, Bethenny? Why can’t you support me?” Singer screamed.

Frankel ended up serving a Singer a backhanded apology by claiming Singer’s business is “not evening happening yet.”

Radziwill also chimed in, slamming her frenemy.

“She’s such a b***h,” Radziwill called the Skinnygirl founder.

The ladies also attacked Frankel for criticizing them in the press.


“You bashed me in every interview you could,” Medley shouted. “It’s disgraceful. I never said one mean thing about you this season.”

The drama did not end there. Singer called Bethenny’s attendance at the funeral for Jill Zarin’s husband Bobby “opportunistic.”

As readers know, Zarin is currently dating new man. Cohen outed Singer, however, for revealing that she dated the same guy!

“I wasn’t even divorced yet!” Singer laughed. Mario Singer’s ex-wife admitted she went on four dates with Zarin’s new boyfriend.
