Heather Thomson Feels Bethenny Knows How To Shut Down A Conversation

Posted on Apr 30 2015 - 3:17pm by Dani-K


If Heather Thomson, star of “Real Housewives of New York,” has learned anything about fellow co-star, Bethenny Frankel, it’s that Bethenny “sure knows how to shut down a conversation.” In this week’s Bravo blog, Heather tries to explain why she brought up the subject of Kristen’s hurt feelings.

“The birthday dinner a few nights ago turned out to be a good time. We all rallied for Bethenny to have a fun party. Everyone was getting along, and we all danced on the table. It was a shame Kristen and Dorinda weren’t invited. I didn’t understand it. I was even more surprised since some of the girls brought dates that Bethenny definitely didn’t know, but it wasn’t my guest list.”

Now you get this, Heather? Everyone know that everyone can’t be invited to everything, but Heather still wants to provide “useful information” to Bethenny.

“After speaking to Kristen about the party, I realized she, and probably Dorinda, felt left out. Totally natural. Since Kristen and I are close, and I thought Bethenny and I were on a positive path, I didn’t think twice about bringing this subject up at our dinner–I thought it was useful information.”

How is this useful information? There’s nothing that can be done now. Please refer to your earlier quote, “but it wasn’t my guest list.” On the positive side, Heather has learned a valuable life lesson from Bethenny.

“I have to hand it to Bethenny–she sure knows how to shut down a conversation the minute there’s no personal interest. I barely finished my sentence on the topic before it got hostile. I don’t think any of us knew what to make of her reaction. Between the sleeping dramatization and telling me I was Carole’s plus one, I quickly realized nothing positive was going to come of this.”

Heather was trying to come from a place of yes – but now realizes it’s going to take some time.

“Mind you, I started by saying “Kristen’s feelings were hurt,” and somehow it turned into a debate about how long they’ve known each other. Maybe it’s just me, but I try to be conscious of my actions when dealing with others, regardless of how long we’ve been acquainted. I guess with Bethenny you have to really put in your time before your feelings are allowed to count. Noted.”

    This was perfect from Heather.

    I just wonder who the hell does B think she is though? She is on a show that she is basically contracted to interact with all the other wives. She is petty and too full of herself. She is also disrespectful and has the coping mechanism of Brynn.

      Kristen is and has been a NY housewife, whether you like her or not doesn’t matter. Bethenney just joined the show and should be including all of the housewives, she shouldn’t be allowed to pick and choose who she films with That’s the point of the show to watch how they interact together. So far Bethenney has done nothing but verbally abuse whoever doesn’t agree with her. Because now she has money she feels she can act the queen

        She reminds me of Kelly, but she’s worst than Kelly was..although Kelly was a royal bitch at times, but Bethanny the crypt keeper is worse..

          ITA. I think both Heather and Dorinda are the only ones who can keep Bethenney in her place barely! Have a happy weekend!

            Heather/Dorinda are telling Crypt Keeper in her lane—good for them.. Bethanny is a friend to no one.. I remember her needing Romona and Simon’s wife on her first season of her show.. Now she big shit with that crap she sells.. Never tasted it—it’s always on discount at the supermarket near my home.. I have some ex friends that said it was nasty, I told them good for them, I’m not putting a penny in any HW product… They all are hawking something..have a good n fun weekend..

      It’s always been about Bethanny, she used Jill until she wasn’t needed anymore.. Jill went too far with her hurt feelings, but Bethanny was treated like a sister to Jill… Bethanny has no friends, because everything is about her..

        and no family, because everything is about her. I can’t stand her. Then she wonders why she is in such a mess. Her energy is all bad.

  • Heather needs to shut her ugly ass up. She didn’t invite Ramona to London last year and invited everyone else so pot meet kettle. Ramona’s feelings were hurt. Heather and Carole have been notorious mean girls for far too long. I’m glad Bethenny is putting them both in their places.

    • Trippinhhard

      I agree with everything except the last sentence.. Bethanny whined she she wasn’t invited to certain events.. I don’t watch, but the blogs tell it all.. Bethanny is more sickening that before..

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    I agree with Bethenny here…..she invited the girls night out group and then some …by the way I’m having a birthday dinner..why don’t you come plus one…there was nothing personal against Kristen
