Popular culture has made the idea of New York City in the Fall quite a cozy and comfortable place!
When it comes to certain Bravolebrities past and present in the Big Apple lately, it may be a different story.
Bravo’s “The Real Housewives Of New York” has gone through quite a bit of change since its latest season (season 13) aired last year. Andy Cohen announced the beloved series, which has been on air since 2008, would be “completely rebooted” with all new cast members.
Even though a new era for ‘RHONY’ is on the horizon, some notable alumna are still busy working through some feelings from yesteryear!
Longtime ‘RHONY’ cast member Luann de Lesseps is not having it after learning Bethenny Frankel, arguably one of the franchise’s most famous alumna has plans to travel down memory lane in the form of a rewatch podcast.
Read on to find out just how many apples de Lesseps had to pick with Frankel in a recent podcast interview!
Bethenny Frankel Has Had Lots To Say About Some Fellow Celebs Lately
Before the launch of her ‘RHONY’ rewatch podcast, Frankel, 52, has made quite a splash online lately, spilling tea on TikTok, and deleting a positive review of a Kim Kardashian product!
Frankel has been keeping busy reviewing products affiliated with the famous family on social media in recent weeks. According to one of our recent reports on Frankel’s reviewing spree, she had given two products in Kardashian’s skincare line and Jenner’s birthday PR box negative reviews.
She was recently dazzled by a ‘Kar-Jenner’ product recently and decided to give it a thumbs-up… until she retracted her positive review!
Frankel took to TikTok and revealed she had decided to delete the positive review because “an individual who I will not discuss because I’ve decided I’m cleansing them from any conversation I have anywhere” owned 5 percent of the SKIMS business.
Fans would soon figure out the individual Frankel had referenced was Kanye ‘Ye’ West, who has been quite verbose lately, sharing anti-Semitic remarks. West has since been publicly condemned by members of the Kardashian family and has lost multiple sponsorship deals.
Frankel also made headlines recently after she chimed in on a TikTok discussion lead by Spencer Pratt where he had called “Friends” star Lisa Kudrow “One of the rudest humans.” Frankel detailed her own encounter with Kudrow after she had been a guest on Frankel’s talk show. (via The Blast)
Luann de Lesseps Isn’t Here For Frankel’s New Podcast!
Someone who is not looking to hop on the nostalgia train anytime soon? Frankel’s former co-star de Lesseps!
Lesseps recently got behind a mic of her own while appearing on the “Everything Iconic With Danny Pellegrino” podcast, and expressed her irritation at Frankel for pursuing such a project.
According to People, de Lesseps called Frankel’s move “A desperate search for a storyline for herself,” adding Frankel has previously “thrown ‘Housewives’ under the bus a million times.”
de Lesseps also recalled, “I remember at one point she wouldn’t even say the word ‘Housewives,’ so a disgruntled Housewife doing a ‘Housewives’ podcast, I don’t think anybody wants to listen to.”
People also report Frankel’s podcast will premiere on November 14th.
“ReWives” is a production of iHeart Media, and will also feature a number of guests on hand to spice up Frankel’s ‘RHONY’ rewatch! Fingers crossed she will bring on some of her fellow former Big Apple dwellers to come chat.
Frankel left the series in 2019.
