Even though Andy Cohen was in California for the Watch What Happens Live episodes this week, he still had to get a New York Housewife on the show to follow the newest episode. Bethenny Frankel came all the way from the Big Apple to join him and her sometimes rumored flame Eric Stonestreet.

Eric and Bethenny maintained that they are “just friends,” which we all expected them to do, but Bethenny did admit to dating another famous New Yorker. Thankfully the man I’m alluding to isn’t Tom D’Agostino, but anything is possible at this point.


Bethenny was asked to play a game where she guessed the viewers answers to a poll to prove whether or not she really “knows it all” as she infamously claimed on Real Housewives of New York. The nice part about this game is that Bethenny could say whatever she genuinely thought, but shift the blame to say she’s “responding from the audience’s perspective.” Bethenny never claimed to do either, but if anyone gets offended, she could very easily get out of the situation.

To be honest, most of the questions were pretty boring, but without hesitation Bethenny named Luann de Lesseps when she was asked “which housewife is the biggest liar?” Was she answering the question for herself or did she just have an accurate perception of what the viewers were thinking? I guess we will never know, but she name dropped the Countess in one second flat.

After the obligatory “Are you dating? Did you ever date?” questions for Bethenny and Eric, the Skinnygirl founder admitted that she dated former New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez. And by “dated” I have to say that I may be exaggerating since Bethenny clarified, “I was out with him twice. I went out with him on two dates.”

Of course that prompted Andy to ask, “Was he a good kisser?” And unfortunately Bethenny did not spill any tea on this one. All she said was, “I don’t honestly remember.” I was hoping for a little more, but Bethenny really doesn’t share much about her love life these days.

Since the show was taping in California, Kyle Richards and Erika Jayne stopped by to play some games. Bethenny had to guess who “had sex on a playground jungle gym” and she correctly guessed that it was Erika. Erika even responded with, “Hell yes.” I just want to know when this happened and with who, but no one ever asked.

Off topic (but still Housewives-related), I’m still reeling from the Phaedra Parks shadiness toward Kandi Burruss and clearly I’m not the only one since Bethenny was asked what she would have done if she was in Kandi’s position.

Bethenny admitted, “I think she contained herself, I really do. I would have needed to hire Phaedra to represent me as a lawyer. I would have beat her ass.” She continued, “That was insane. She’s a lawyer and she tried to ruin someone’s brand and career and she has a kid. It was despicable.” Completely. No matter how many Bible verses or motivational quotes Phaedra posts on social media, there’s really no coming back from that horrid behavior.
