What happens when Housewives worlds collide? The ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills recently visited the Big Apple, and rookie Teddi Mellencamp got the chance to meet Real Housewives of New York veteran Bethenny Frankel – an experience she says was exactly like she thought it would be.
Mellencamp recently stopped by The Daily Dish podcast, and she told hosts, Megan Segura and Rachel Roberts, that her first impression of Frankel was that she was “funny and snarky.” Mellencamp made the visit with Kyle Richards, one of Frankel’s longtime friends.
Mellencamp also revealed that in real life, Frankel is just like she is on TV. And even though mixing old and new friends can sometimes be a challenge, Frankel and Mellencamp seemed to hit it off.
But Mellencamp wasn’t the only Beverly Hills housewife that the Skinny Girl founder mingled with. She was also around when drama erupted between Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Dorit Kemsley.
The women gathered at a fashion event when Frankel shared her opinion about Vanderpump going to Kemsley’s aid after Richards confronted her about talking behind her back.
“It was a thank you, f**k you,” Frankel says in the clip. “It was a thuck you, we call it.”
Vanderpump tried to plead her case to Frankel, who had obviously chosen a side with no plans of changing. Frankel then questions Vanderpump’s loyalty with Richards present.
All of this could have led to a major blow up, but instead, Frankel coaches Vanderpump on the proper way to apologize, and eventually gets her to say “I’m sorry” to Richards.
Frankel has enough drama of her own, without getting involved in the lives of the women from Beverly Hills. Recently, Frankel and her castmates got involved in an accident during their vacation to Colombia.
It all happened when they rented a luxury yacht for a day of sunbathing, but the anchor ended up dropping unexpectedly, and the boat nearly sank. Some reports say that flames engulfed the vessel, but video from the incident shows no fire and there was no need for a rescue boat.
Reps from the Bravo network confirmed there was an incident, but the cast and crew are completely safe. Everyone ended up being just fine, and they were able to continue their vacation as planned.
Fans will get to see the bicoastal crossover with Teddi Jo Mellencamp, Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards and Bethenny Frankel during the next episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Tuesday, February 27th on Bravo.
