Bethenny Frankel is one of Bravo’s brightest stars and most successful stories. If a viewer were to model themselves by one Bravolebrity, Bethenny is a good one to emulate. She has the money, the name, and has developed her philanthropic efforts to prestigious levels. Beth might have always had that “star power” but attempts to launch her brand remained unsuccessful prior to joining Real Housewives of New York.
After 8 seasons of playing the reality television game, between taking time off to investigate other ventures, Bethenny departed the franchise for bigger and better pursuits. She currently has a gig with HBO and recently revealed her newest wine collection. Beth has proclaimed being on Housewives ruined her credibility in the business world but admits she misses aspects of the show. In a recent interview, she implies RHONY is no longer on her radar, so I suppose it was by sheer coincidence Bethenny revealed her engagement the day the newest season trailer came out.
The news of Bethenny Frankel and Paul Bernon’s engagement broke almost simultaneously with the first Season 13 trailer of the Real Housewives of New York. It didn’t exactly seem like a coincidence, with the cast thinking that B was being petty with the timing. However, she hasn’t acknowledged the big news, until now.
Her engagement news came simultaneously with reports that her 8-year divorce from hell with Jason Hoppy is finally over. And finally, the SkinnyGirl mogul is free to move on and didn’t waste any time.
Real Housewives of New York alum Bethenny Frankel hasn’t had it easy when it comes to relationships. On the show, we’ve seen Jason Hoppy put her through the wringer with a nasty divorce. And she was hit hard by the unexpected death of her on-and-off boyfriend Dennis Shields.
After her RHONY days were over, the SkinnyGirl founder seemingly found love with a new boo Paul Bernon, despite a breakup or two thrown in between. Now, B is officially moving into a new chapter in her life. It could mean wedding bells are on the horizon.
In October 2020, the news broke that Bethenny Frankel and Paul Bernon split up after two years together. Other than that update, there didn’t seem to be much more to it. There were no rumblings of drama or scandal of any kind.
She even insisted, “not everything has to end badly.” Well, apparently, the romance didn’t actually “end” after all. Or if it did, it wasn’t over for long.
There’s no doubt that Bethenny Frankel has made the most out of the Real Housewives of New York platform. However, she doesn’t want to be associated with the show that helped make her a household name.
During her recent interview with Tamron Hall, B wouldn’t even utter the words “Real Housewives of New York.” Instead she referred to it as “the show that I was previously on” which is some shade on its own, but she had even more to say than that.
Since quitting Real Housewives of New York in 2019, Bethenny Frankel has launched a podcast and is casting for a new reality show.
But Bethenny has a fun new hobby–dissing other celebrities. First, the RHONY alum took aim at Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s hit song “WAP.” The song is raunchy, and Bethenny wasn’t happy with the song’s content.
Leah McSweeney sailed through her first season on Real Housewives of New York. Yes, she was inebriated a good deal of the time, but if you wanted to find Sonja Morgan, you needed to look under a table. That said, Leah decided to embrace sobriety once again and remain somewhat conscious in an effort to dodge thinly-veiled digs from Ramona Singer.
Looks like that clarity has provided Leah with some dance skills and maybe some thinly-veiled digs of her own. Bethenney Frankel made news recently, with some disparaging remarks regarding a Cardi B song. Beth felt some type of way about the explicit lyrics of “WAP” and proceeded to get owned by half of social media. Now Leah shares her opinion of the song that forces Bethenney to her fainting couch. Leah also shares some moves you would have never seen on Dance Fever.
Like it or not, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s song “WAP” is a massive hit. If you’ve been living under a rock, WAP is actually an acronym and you can check out the explicit lyrics if you’re unfamiliar with the track.
Real Housewives of New York cast members Leah McSweeney and Tinsley Mortimer did a dance to “WAP” that went viral. However, Real Housewives of New York OG Bethenny Frankel isn’t feeling the song at all.
