Bethenny Frankel doesn’t want us to get it twisted. She never called Kristen Taekman “dumb,” and she doesn’t have a running feud with Heather Thomson. So, then, why were those two themes a central focus in last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of New York? Bethenny shares in her Bravo blog that she “just wanted to end the dynamic with Heather.” She goes on to explain her wall/no wall (oxy)moronic way of living: “Although I am a reality star, I don’t always want the spotlight on me. I love doing reality TV, because I love the connection with the audience, the running commentary, the interaction with the women, and ultimately, the humor of it all. This doesn’t mean that when I’m going through some personal sh– that I want people up in my grill. It takes me a minute to get warm,” Bethenny explains.
Bethenny argues that making up with Heather, whether real or fake, was simply because she “just wanted to hug and make up and keep it moving.” She adds, “Aside from trying to give Sonja [Morgan] some guidance in the past, I am not on top of anyone trying to do anything. I just want to ease in and keep it easy breezy light and bright. Heather and I have different approaches.” Hitting the point home with the force of a blunt hammer, Bethenny continues, “I approached Heather, because I really didn’t want this to become some insane Housewife rivalry that it isn’t. She came on strong. I backed up. That is it. Different strokes for different folks. She is not my frenemy. Life is too short.”
