The Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny and Kelly talked about their feud in their bravo blogs last week. Here’s what each had to say about the other below. The above photo is a picture of Bethenny from this weekend’s Kentucky Derby. Not her best look as she’s usually the best dressed on the show.
Bethenny on Kelly’s “Self-Anointed Fabulosity”:
“The attempted reconciliation with Kelly was my idea — not Jill’s. I just chose to do it at her house because of the charity meeting. That meeting showed that the definition of insanity is repeating the same behavior and expecting different results.
Kelly and I don’t have much in common. We have arms and legs and are on “The Real Housewives.” Other than that, we’re quite different. Short of us boxing at Madison Square Garden, it can’t get much worse than it already is. Not everyone has to be friends…
Kelly came onto the show thinking anyone actually gave a crap about her self-anointed fabulosity. None of us care about her superficial lifestyle, so I think my calling her out is something that caught her off guard. Truthfully she never had anything against me. I had something against her. She is a complete phony and now she has been exposed and her small circle of New York supporters has now turned on her as well. The emperor has no clothes…
I will never be friends with someone inauthentic and disingenuous. I may be harsh, abrupt and rough around the edges, but for God’s sake, I am real. I don’t care how many “Dateline” exclusive sit-down interviews you have with Jill Stuart — your saccharin smile and hair twirl isn’t fooling me.”
Kelly on Bethenny’s “Negative Behavior”:
“The truth is that I am very a sensitive person. I hate confrontation, and I am annoyed by the soap opera/mafia sit-downs. I am a very easygoing person, and I don’t ever come across these types of moments in my every day life, so I honestly don’t have experience handling confrontation. I just want to enjoy the life I am so lucky and grateful to have.
I tried to be nice to Bethenny at the Jill Stuart fashion show. She chose to fight with the new girl, and was rewarded with press and airtime. She did what she set out to do, and honestly, what is wrong with that? It’s a TV show!
We speak two different languages. I don’t need to get to the bottom of why we had an argument, nor do I like to be policed on a constant basis. What’s in the past is in the past, and we are working together, so let’s move on.
I am always nice to everyone. But, as I always tell my children, not everyone is expected to be friends. You always have to make the effort to be polite. Bethenny and I don’t travel in the same circles, and we have some mutual friends, but I rarely see the cast outside of the show. That isn’t good or bad — it’s just different.
If Bethenny wants my attention I’d rather do something with her that is fun and productive, rather than indulge her negative behavior.”
