Bethenny Frankel Says Jonah Hill Was a ‘Low-Grade D*ck’ to Her: ‘I Felt Like a Loser’
Bethenny Frankel recently shared a personal anecdote involving actor Jonah Hill, amidst the swirling allegations of emotional abuse surrounding the actor.
Bethenny, 52, claimed that her encounter with the renowned star was far from enjoyable, leaving a lasting impression on her.
“I did ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ and Jonah Hill was the first guest,” Frankel said in a TikTok video posted Monday. “And he was a low-grade d—k.”
She added: “He was put upon and kind of treated me like he was … better than [me]. I felt like a loser and the nobody that I was.”
The former Real Housewives of New York City star candidly addressed the recent controversy surrounding actor Jonah Hill. In particular, Bethenny delved into the release of Jonah’s alleged misogynistic texts by his ex-girlfriend Sarah Brady, which took place over the weekend.
“These texts seem crazy. And there are texts that I have sent to people and that people have sent to me that would seem nuts in a vacuum,” she said.
Bethenny admitted to being uncertain about the release of private texts. In doing so, she drew parallels to various noteworthy instances in pop culture, such as the legal dispute between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. Frankel’s stance on the matter appears to be complex, as she grapples with the ethical implications surrounding the public disclosure of personal conversations.
Bethenny Frankel asked her fans, “Where’s the line in what texts and phone calls should be shared? In the past, Mel Gibson’s crazy phone call that his ex shared, Alec Baldwin with his daughter, that crazy conversation was shared. A lot was shared with Johnny Depp and Amber Heard and until they got into court, everyone was team Amber. So, I think it’s tricky to be reading texts.”
Bethenny, openly admitted that she doesn’t, “know the whole story” behind Hill’s texts, but called both the actor and the surfer “a little nuts.”
“If you’re in a relationship with someone for one year, are texts free game, like fair game?” Frankel questioned. “Has he abused her in a way that she has to cry for help and she needs help and she won’t be silenced anymore?”
The controversy surrounding actor Jonah Hill, known for his role in “21 Jump Street,” erupted over the weekend when his ex-girlfriend, Sarah Brady, 25, shared screenshots of text messages she claimed he sent her. These messages allegedly included Hill expressing his opinion that some of her Instagram pictures were inappropriate.
Within the exchanged messages, Jonah Hill was reported to have instructed his then-girlfriend to remove photos featuring her “ass in a thong.”
According to Sarah’s claims, she respected Jonah’s wishes and removed the photos as requested. Nevertheless, Hill allegedly conveyed to her that she didn’t fully grasp his point and proceeded to outline a series of exaggerated “boundaries.”
Jonah and Sarah entered into a romantic relationship in August 2021 but ultimately parted ways in early 2022.
Shortly after his breakup with Sarah, the actor found new love with Olivia Millar, the owner of a clothing brand. In March, Millar was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her finger, fueling engagement rumors. In May, Jonah and Millar joyfully welcomed their first child together, marking a new chapter in their relationship.
Sarah revealed that she chose to wait until after Millar gave birth before sharing the messages because she didn’t want to disrupt the pregnancy. Showing consideration and sensitivity, Sarah decided to hold off on making the messages public until a time that would be less disruptive for Millar during her pregnancy journey.
“I didn’t want [Millar] to have to see all of this while she was pregnant because I didn’t know what kind of stress that would cause her and her baby physically,” In a voice memo shared on her Instagram Story on Sunday, Sarah provided an explanation for the situation.
While Jonah and his team have not issued a direct response to the allegations, an interesting development has emerged. His clothing brand has introduced a new product called the “emotional baggage tote,” which appears to convey a passive-aggressive message in light of the situation. Although it is unclear whether this product is directly related to the claims or simply a coincidental release, it has raised eyebrows and sparked speculation among fans and observers.
