Bethenny Frankel Calls Out Heather Thomson! “It Felt Manufactured To Stir Up Drama”

Posted on Apr 30 2015 - 4:07am by Dani-K


In this week’s Bravo blog, Bethenny Frankel, star of “The Real Housewives of New York,” calls out castmate, Heather Thomson, for manufacturing the drama! Bethenny, in her candid, no holds barred manner, explains why she was so harsh to Heather at dinner.

“Ouch. I may not float like a butterfly, but I DO sting like a bee. Watching the dinner at Cherry made me giggle. It did look harsh when watching it back.”

This is something we call all agree on, but Bethenny explains where she was coming from during the #kristenishurt performance by Heather.

“Let me create some context: I find that on the Housewives shows, being invited or not invited to something tends to be blown out of proportion, dragged out, and takes on a life of itself. This concept is exhausting to me, and I knew exactly where Heather was going. It felt manufactured to stir up drama.”

Bethenny is standing by her convictions that she’s not going to invite people she doesn’t know just for the sake of a television show. Not including the dates of others. Or the friends of the dates of others.

“The fact remains that I was new to the show, had just met everyone and had spent some time with Carole and Heather, so I decided to invite them to my birthday. I didn’t know Kristen at all and wasn’t going to invite her for the sake of a television show. Dorinda even says at dinner that she didn’t know me at all so for her to be upset is preposterous to me. Even Kristen’s housekeeper thought it was no big deal. The trailers did warn that “The B is back,” so there you have it.”

There we have it. Bethenny ends her blog with a warning that this is not the end of her wrath.

“I’m rather grateful for Dorinda ripping John a new asshole at dinner, because it basically made me feel better about being a 24-karat twat at Cherry.” (Twat at cherry? Ugh.) “Unfortunately, I don’t think this is the end of my wrath. I walked into a new group of women, I had a lot of personal stress, and I was taking no prisoners.” Bethenny added, “All in, I love the show this season. I think it feels real, different, and like it used to be. Keep watching. It gets really good.”

    Bethanny you are one nasty crypt looking woman and no I won’t watch, because you are acting the same way Kelly treated you.. So take a look in the mirror, it not a good look at all.
    You are nasty, rude and with a hoodrat attitude, you ruined the show, I can’t watch you on anything..

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      Exactly why I am not watching!

      • Trippinhhard

        She’s the one who makes an issue of anything, that she not the center of attention..she one ungrateful woman.. I’ve never bought any product from the HWS. I’m not putting an extra penny in their bank account.. I don’t like giving Johnson n Johnson my money, but their products are tried and true, with integrity. jmo

  • whose gonna do my hair!

    twat? she lost her cherry a long time ago, so she’s left with a twat!

  • TartLemon

    The caller on WWHL described it bet as highly anticipating Bethenny’s return, but already have “Bethenny fatigue” this early in the season.

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    I’m not really a Bethenny fan anymore…BUT I think she will make this season interesting…if not, RHONY is officially DONE! It’s been on life support for the past couple seasons now…

    The Bethenny & Heather beef should make it interesting…

    • Ruth Ferguson

      With luck someone will walk into the room and pull that life support plug… Any takers?

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    …and as far as inviting Kristen…I wouldn’t invite that bore to ANYTHING! Why is she on this show again?

  • undergroundrailroadtrain

    She didn’t invite Kristen to her birthday party but Kristen was invited to her brunch where she could hock her skinny girl products on her cast mates. Girl bye.

  • misstc

    I got a different view on this debacle. Bethenny invite people she was partying with at the club; a kinda last minute invite. Since Dorinda & Kristin were not at the club that night, they were overlooked and not intentionally blocked from coming to the event.

  • Bad Barbie

    Whatever. You had people you didn’t know at your wedding because Bravo was paying for it. NEXT!

    I never liked Heather since her first season on the show. Her telling Bethany that Kristen was upset because she wasn’t
    invited to her birthday party was kind of funny to me. This dinner was hosted by Heather wasn’t it???, and where was Kristen. Did she forget to invite her friend to this
    too. Kind of hypocritical. Poor Kristen,
    nobody remembers her. Maybe she
    should contact Brandi to get some pointers on how to be remembered. lol

    Also, remember when Heather didn’t invite Ramona to London on her first season on the show, it
    was horrible. Who does that. Intentionally not invite someone, and invite
    everyone else. It was so mean. She laughed so much to all the girls how
    Ramona was following her around to get an invite and she wouldn’t bite. MEAN MEAN MEAN.

    And now she has the nerve to call Bethany out by not inviting someone she doesn’t
    even know to her birthday. Lotta nerve
    Heather. Oh, by the way, I still don’t like you.

    • I agree 100% with this entire comment — Well said!

    • Dani-K

      You are so right! Heather is do as I say and not as I do.

    • teri keller

      I agree never have liked her never will

  • I find it very ironic and hypocritical at the same time that the Heather/Carole fans were perfectly comfortable with Bethenny attacking Jill and Kelly but are in an uproar over (the SAME Bethenny – she hasn’t changed)….attacking Carole (Crypt Keeper) and Heather (Big nose). Hahahaha! People crack me up.

  • CNN

    Bethenny doesn’t know how to listen or observe; all she does is yap yap yap….needs to be the center of attention.

  • Rochelle Barozzi

    Thanks again for the great recap Dani-K. It sounds like HollaHeather has met her match! In a lot of ways they are alike. Both are ball busters.

    • Dani-K

      That’s what I say! Seperated at birth – they are so much alike.

  • Malianne

    Bethany is so vile and does not understand what show she is on. It is a show about all of them and therefore all should be included in events for the SHOW. She is working on a show with them so she needs to get to know them. She is simply a repulsive addition this year and it saddens me to lose yet another Bravo show.

  • colleen

    The thing is, Kristen is fighting for a storyline. With Bethany taking over, K doesn’t have a chance of coming back next year. It seemed like Heather was trying to get Kristen involved in something
