Bethenny Frankel Says Anna Wintour Cut The Kardashians Out Of Met Gala To “Class It Up”

It’s been a few days since Page Six broke the news that Anna Wintour could be tightening up this year’s Met Gala guest list. Sources said there would be a Kardashian Kleanse, as none of the reality stars have made the cut. I’m getting major flashbacks to Season 1 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. “My name is there… Nene’s isn’t.” An insider close to the Kardashians denies that the rumor is true.

Anyway, with one of fashion’s biggest nights approaching, we all want to see who will attend. Frankly, I’ve enjoyed seeing some of Kim Kardashian’s looks over the year. However, there’s one person who hasn’t. And it’ll come as no surprise to hear it’s none other than Bethenny Frankel

Page Six reported on Bethenny’s newest attack against the reality TV family, saying Anna Wintour’s goal was to invite “true fashion people.” 

“Maybe [Wintour] got all the juice out of that lemon, and now she wants to class it up,” she said on TikTok.

Undoubtedly, the Kardashians have stamped their name in the pop culture history books. Bethenny says there was a time when they were “unavoidable” when they were at the “peak of their fame.” Her theory is that they only received invites to Anna’s massive event because it was a strategy to “sell magazines” rather than showcasing them as fashion icons. 

In Bethenny’s mind, the people want a “Kardashian intervention.” She says their demand was once high; however, people are now “full of [the Kardashians].” 

“We’re in a situation where people want a Kardashian cleanse,” she said. “Maybe [Anna] has to appeal to her base, which is fashion — which is not Addison Rae and Kylie Jenner wearing a backwards baseball bat and a tutu and throwing money at the problem.” 

Bethenny’s statements are not the first time the former Real Housewives of New York star has come for the famous family. Bethenny once shaded Kim’s beauty line, calling it “Impractical” and “overpriced.” 

“Look at Kim Kardashian’s Skkn. That popped for like a moment because it was a big announcement and that’s exciting, but it’s not sustaining. You have to be able to sustain in this industry,” she said.

Aww. Bethenny would know about sustainability seeing that she hasn’t been able to keep a spin-off (or talk show) on the air for longer than a season. Maybe sit this one out, B.
