After the emotional hot-n-cold ride Bethenny Frankel’s emotions took on last night’s Real Housewives of New York, she feels she has some ‘splainin to do. So, here it is, in the form of this week’s Bravo blog! Bethenny starts by explaining why she felt Carole Radziwill was the – er, appropriate? – audience she needed for an emotional meltdown over her custody and divorce troubles. “You know how sometimes you can confide in a stranger more easily than someone you’re close with? Well, there is a lot that people don’t know about my personal life, and let’s just say that emotions creep out in unexpected ways,” she says. “I have had a rough time, and I was particularly raw. I broke down in CB2, which I’ve renamed ‘Cry Baby 2.’ Carole was perfect in that situation. I am not a huge hugger, either, and I just needed to let it out.”
As for Heather Thomson’s attempts to plumb Bethenny’s emotional depths over 3-year old de-thawed cocktail wieners at Carole’s election party, Bethenny wants none of it. No thanks, mama. “Heather is very inquisitive and likes to get deep quickly,” says Bethenny. “She is just curious, concerned, and a little touchy feely at times. I believe it comes from a good place. I am just guarded and not always trusting. As Dorinda says, I’m a squirrel, so really fast moves make me run. Custody conversation is very personal, and I was just not there, nor will I probably ever be.” Does Heather not know you can’t “Holla!” at a squirrel?

One place Bethenny did not fight, fly, or cry at this week was Sonja Morgan’s magazine cover party. “So Sonja’s party–Latino Show Magazine with her on the cover is pure comedy as a concept,” snarks Bethenny. She does add that Sonja “did look beautiful, though, and the photography was beautiful. It just seemed a little random–like me gracing the cover of Field and Stream.” She says, however that “Heather did fire a random shot at her though asking about Kmart. I was literally at Kmart yesterday, a store that I LOVE, but I didn’t happen to notice any full-length, red evening gowns there. That was a little slap.”
Another metaphorical slap, albeit louder and reeking of Pinot Noir, came in the form of Ramona Singer throwing Luann de Lesseps under the bus at Dorinda Medley’s birthday dinner. Bethenny comments, “The caviar dinner was a sh*t stirrer. Luann has not been silent about her opinions this season. It’s the anti-Countess…(a term that Bravo and the ladies will definitely adopt). Anyway, Luann definitely commented about Dorinda and John. But Ramona can be a meddler and loves to drive the getaway car while not getting dirty. Ramona definitely commented, as well, which she conveniently left out.”
Adding that viewers will see more fallout from this dinner in the weeks to come, Bethenny concludes, “P.S. Who cares who Dorinda dates? Since when do we bash people our friends are in love with or sleeping with? I’ve been royally screwed over in relationships, but no one could have told me different. We go through our process our own way. For all we know, John and Dorinda are soul mates. He is what she needs right now.”
