Bethenny Frankel is done dealing with Luann de Lesseps’ diva antics. On the latest episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, the Skinnygirl mogul had a full-on panic attack, screaming at de Lesseps, 54, and accusing her of turning her back on the people that care about her.
It all started when de Lesseps went off on a solo swim, and to look at a billboard of herself, while the rest of the cast made lunch and spent time together in Miami. By the time the Countess finally reunited with the other ladies for a luxurious dinner, they were already turned off by her energy.
“Luann’s favorite topic is Luann,” says Frankel, 48, in the clip. “She just isn’t aware that we might be a little full of the Luann buffet.”
Sonja Morgan — who’s feeling upset after attending an AA session with de Lesseps — tells her she wished she’d spent more time with the group. De Lesseps, however, doesn’t care, and instead accuses Morgan, 55, of just wanting attention. She then struts off to her room, only complaining about how she didn’t get to book a massage like the rest of the ladies.
At dinner, the women confront de Lesseps, saying she’s coming off as “insensitive,” rude, and self-involved.
“Sometimes I feel like my relationship with you is more important than your relationship with me,” says Barbra Kavovit.
“It’s not my fault,” replies de Lesseps.
Then, a very drunk Tinsley Mortimer butts in, and de Lesseps begin mocking her for slurring her words. At that, Frankel explodes.
“You are insufferable,” she tells de Lesseps with a look of disgust. “You are intolerable.”
She then blames de Lesseps for using her sobriety as a storyline on the show to make cash.
“You never change. You dined out on your sobriety, you’re dining out,” she tells her, and the other women agree.
“Let me explain something to you clearly: Dennis helped you with your case 100 percent. When’s the last time you asked me how I feel about it?” she says. “It’s unnerving. The truth hurts.”
Still, de Lesseps refuses to apologize for her actions or take any responsibility for the pain she’s caused her Bravo friends.
Seeing her reaction — or lack thereof — Frankel stands up at the dinner table and begins yelling at de Lesseps.
“I did your intervention while my guy died of a drug overdose,” she says, weeping with anger. “You never checked in on Dennis, not once!”
"I really think Bethenny is having a full-on panic attack and it doesn't have to do just with Lu. She's got a lot on her plate. I don't know how much she's dealt with the whole thing with Dennis, but she can't take the frugality of this bull**t anymore," Dorinda Medley later tells the camera.
“What are you talking about?” asks de Lesseps.
“Everyday it’s about you!” says Frankel. “I took weeks of my life for you! I had lawyers come to your house on a Sunday, I spoke to your kids, I sat outside your driveway to make sure you didn’t drive your car, you almost crashed your boat and killed your friends.”
The women agree, and continue slamming de Lesseps as Frankel spills her dirtiest secrets.
“You left the f***ing rehab that I got you for free two weeks early,” she screams.
De Lesseps says she left a week early because she had to work.
“It was cabaret!” screams Frankel. “You’re a sicko! For cabaret, you left two weeks early! I got it for free you’re sick.”
“You’re so up you’re own f***ing a**,” she adds.
The Real Housewives of New York City airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
