Despite having the finale to recap tonight and a new post just today on Bethenny’s relentless attacks on Luann this season, I feel the need to post yet another piece on the vile nature of Bethenny Frankel’s behavior this season. She has spent the summer giving multiple interviews about RHONY this summer about how she doesn’t want to do anything related to RHONY this summer. She bemoans how the show (i.e. her nasty behavior) has been bad for her brand and she needs to rethink some things and does the usual lying about perhaps not coming back next season. Yet, don’t get your hopes up boys and girls. I’m afraid we are stuck with this wench.
Luann and Tom have moved past his indiscretion with the “former Playboy model” who has to my knowledge kept her name out of the press. Luann is far more disgusted with how Bethenny went about sharing her private investigation into her life with the world. It the information had just fallen into Bethenny’s lap, she should have handled it off camera. But as the facts continue to come out, it seems Bethenny was actively seeking out information on her relationship to inflict pain.
Luann shared new information with People.
“It was disgusting. Her handling of the situation – and I go over this at the reunion – was terrible. She could have went to Dorinda, who introduced us, and said ‘Look I have this.’ [But] she was like the cat who got the canary. Does a good friend do that to you? Someone who has your best interest in mind? No.”
“It’s not authentic,” she continued. “It’s made for television. And that’s what she is.”
I don’t think anyone ever believed that Bethenny was a friend to Luann She was particularly brutal this season, attacking anyone in a relationship. She spent a lot of time this season making accusations about Dorinda and Luann’s significant others, seemingly trying to cause a rift in their relationships. She also mercilessly mocked Jules eating disorder during a time when she was have serious issues in her marriage.
“She should’ve talked to me first,” says de Lesseps. “Not the other women, not tried to call Tom, but talk to me. I find that very bizarre. It’s terrible. That’s not somebody who has your best interest in mind – that’s someone who has their own agenda.”
The People article revealed that Bethenny called the bartenders at the hotel bar and interrogated them about Tom’s activities. She must have done this on the night of the engagement party on the yacht. While everyone else was celebrating the engagement, she was likely in her bed at the hotel in Miami slurping her swill and drunk dialing the bar. What kind of bartender would give some random woman the scoop on the actions of one of their regular customers? That is hardly good look for The Regency.
“Bethenny said I fell in love with the attention she’s spent her whole career getting. Who got married on TV? Who treated their husband like s— on TV? Who’s been trying to get divorced for longer than she’s been married? She’s the biggest media whore that ever lived. And she talks about me?”
It’s about time Luann takes the gloves off. She has been way too tolerant of Bethenny’s insults all season. It’s about time she gives something back.
Bethenny also has made very public comments about Tom’s finances. Finally, Luann addresses that situation.
“Tom’s richer than all of us put together – including Bethenny,” she says. “He has no interest in the fame or being with a Housewife. He fell in love with me, poor guy.”
Luann went on to say that Bethenny is an extremely unhappy person who continues to attack her cast members out of jealousy. I agree, and would like to add, she is probably also very, very hungry.
