We all knew that Bethenny Frankel quit Real Housewives of New York, but no one expected it to be addressed on the show. We all know how much these women (Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps) hate all of the attention that Bethenny gets. Not gonna lie, I was pretty shook when the season 12 premiere episode opened with a (staged) montage of the women reacting to the news.
Now, Bethenny is shading the shit out of them and the show that made her a household name. According to Page Six, Bethenny told Extra, “The beginning of the show was the proverbial middle finger to me.”
She remarked, “The women have definitely had some unpleasant things to say about me … I wish them well.” Again, at least Sonja care. She even equated Bethenny’s departure to the loss she felt when her daughter left the house to attend college.
Bethenny didn’t mention any names, but she did come for the show as a whole. Bethenny began, “The ratings overall in television have never been higher and perhaps the ratings on ‘Real Housewives’ aren’t doing well because it’s sort of not maybe the content that is inspiring people to do what they need to do right now.” Oh. Damn. She went there.
She continued, “Or maybe they want to watch the news or something uplifting or some way to pay it forward.” Bethenny may have left the show, but she didn’t lose her ability to throw some shade. The woman still has it and she’s saving the world at the same time.

In that same interview, Bethenny mentioned, “We will have distributed over $16 million worth of aid this week and that will grow exponentially.” That is absolutely amazing.
This interview wasn’t the only recent dig Bethenny made against the show. She told UPI, “It’s an interesting time for me to have left my former show because I don’t think that represents who I am right now or anymore. I don’t think it represents my future. It’s not a reflection of all the values that are important to me.”

So much for my hopes that Bethenny would make a Bravo come back down the road. That ship has sailed.
