After Tuesday night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of New York,” Bethenny Frankel was Andy Cohen’s guest on “Watch What Happens Live.” As usual, Bethenny was a straight shooter with her thoughts on topics such as Kim and Kyle Richards’ relationship drama and her reaction to RHOC husband and Botched star, Dr. Terry Dubrow’s comment that Bethenny is too thin and would want to feed her if she came on his show.
Bethenny said, “There’s been a whole thing lately with skinny-shaming and Kelly Clarkson with body-shaming and Giuliana Rancic… I’m not going to be like ‘Oh god, people think I’m skinny, why me?’ He didn’t mean it, it’s a joke. Everyone is very, very sensitive and I think that people that are overweight have a reason to be sensitive about it. I am thin… I have a brand called Skinnygirl. It’s okay if he thinks I’m thin.”
Bethenny and Terry’s wife, Heather Dubrow, exchanged Twitter remarks later that night, and it doesn’t appear as if Bethenny found the comment to be “a joke” at first.
A caller chastises Bethenny about calling herself homeless on the season premiere of RHONY and Bethenny has a strong response.
Next on WWHL, Andy asked Bethenny for her thoughts about the ever increasing feud between Kim and Kyle. Bethenny said, “Wow. I mean I’ve really known them for about twenty five years. First of all, I can’t imagine bringing a family member on this show. I mean you have it on Jersey… it’s gnarly. There are deep seeded things there that have gone on for years.”
Andy asked Bethenny if the sisters have always been at odds. “I think there have always been some nuances. You’re talking about three girls. There’s Kathy, Kim and Kyle…”
When Andy delved further into what Bethenny thinks the core issue is between Kim and Kyle is, she stated,
“They’re in a town where money and attention and fame are really prevalent and I think it’s like an alternative universe. There living this, but then they’re also living it in the press, on Instagram, on Twitter, it’s really, really murky and I don’t know how they’re going to get out of it. Being on television together… it doesn’t seem like it’s going in a good direction.”
A game was played called called “The Callback,” Bethenny shares some news she heard from Andy Cohen about Drake and Madonna possibly dating!
