I feel like such a bad person for saying this, but I was really living for the feud between Bethenny Frankel and Luann de Lesseps during the last Real Housewives of New York season. I feel a little guilty being so entertained by the tough times in people’s lives, but then again that is the whole purpose of them being on a reality show.
Although Bethenny can be super harsh, I still think it’s strange that Luann is so mad at Bethenny for letting her know that husband-to-be Tom D’Agostino was making out with another women just a week after they got engaged. So obviously, Bethenny is not getting invited to that wedding, not that she would want to go anyway.

It’s obvious The Countess is very sensitive when it comes to her public image. She seemed more upset about people finding out that Tom cheated on her than by him actually cheating on her. In my opinion, hating on Bethenny was just a scapegoat to escape the real issue at hand: Tom being shady as hell.
Obviously if this was one hundred percent real life, Lu and Bethenny would have nothing to do with each other, but since they are costars on the same reality show, I wonder if the Skinnygirl founder would go to Luann’s wedding. Surprisingly, she would attend, but only based on two (hilarious) conditions.
In an interview with People, Bethenny talked about her feud with Luann – obviously – but the thing that really struck me wasn’t the comments about Luann shooting the messenger that we’ve all heard and read before. Rather, it was when Bethenny was asked if she would go to Luann and Tom’s wedding.
Bethenny said, “I would go to Luann’s for a very steep appearance fee.”
I don’t even think that was a joke. And I’m sure that Bravo executives actually would pay for Bethenny to be present and share her commentary on what is bound to be a ridiculously over-the-top wedding.
Not only did Bethenny say that, but she also added, “I would gladly sponsor the wedding with alcohol. And I will gladly take – now because I am sponsoring the wedding – a discounted appearance fee.”
I’m dead. I know that Bethenny’s sense of humor is not for everyone, but that comment made me laugh so much. I would laugh so much to see Luann and Tom exchanging vows in front of a step-and-repeat with the Skinnygirl logo all over it.
I feel like Luann is the type of Housewife to want her wedding on Bravo, so I wouldn’t be shocked if part of that would be requiring her to have the Real Housewives of New York cast members present. That’s what I would love to see and I hope it happens.
