Bethenny Frankel must think the real world is a lot like The Real Housewives of New York. So imagine her surprise when her recent antics got her kicked off SiriusXM.

Bethenny’s show, B Real with Bethenny has been canceled after she tossed a drink on some VIPs at a Coldplay concert.

According to Page Six, here’s how it went down. Frankel was one of 150 guests that included Jay Z and Beyoncé. The concert took place on August 7th at Stephen Talkhouse in the Hamptons where apparently the women in front of Bethenny refused to sit down. A witness said:

Bethenny started poking and pushing them. Then, when they didn’t move, she went to the bar and got a mixed drink and threw it over them.”

According to one source, the bigwigs at SiriusXM “…were prepared to give Bethenny her own show, but they ripped up the contract after that night.”

One of the women who drew Bethenny’s wrath wore a white dress. Disgusted and drenched, she left the venue but complained to the SiriusXM execs. One of the other women who got doused was

“Lisa ­Pevaroff-Cohn, the wife of Goldman bigwig Gary Cohn.”

A source close to Frankel defended Bethenny’s actions:

“It was a crush . . . and very hot. People were jockeying for a view. It looked like this woman, who vehemently refused to move, needed some cooling off . . . so Bethenny tossed some water on her.”

Three days later, Bethenny announced that she was taking a summer hiatus from Andy Cohen’s channel and would return in September. But she hasn’t been back.

SiriusXM is smoothing things over by saying:

“When we announced ‘B Real with Bethenny’ . . . back in April, it was as a limited-run weekly series. We often work with hosts [on] limited-run series to develop . . . with the hope they can lead a daily show . . . That requires a great time commitment from the hosts. Bethenny is busy with Bravo and other projects, and we were unsure whether, in the long run, we could get enough of her time for a five-day-a-week show.”

Neither Bethenny nor her reps have deigned to comment.
