On the latest episode of Real Housewives of New York, it was Bethenny Frankel against the world after her feud with Carole Radziwill started to heat up, she ticked off Dorinda Medley, insulted Luann de Lesseps, and had an explosive phone call with Ramona Singer.
The big story is Frankel’s beef with Radziwill because the former besties continue to fight about anything and everything. They started off by arguing about Radziwill’s on-again, off-again boyfriend, Adam. He aggravated Frankel when he asked her to pay him for photographing her charity work in Puerto Rico. Radziwill said in a confessional that Frankel called her one day to tell her she thinks Adam is an “operator.”
“He was the only person who asked about a rate. I called you and said that I think he’s an operator and said can we be done with Adam yet,” Frankel explained. “I realized I pushed a button, I had gone so far, and I said to you I’m sorry and you said everyone’s an operator in business.”

Then de Lesseps put her two cents in and said that Adam “operated” her niece before Radziwill, and she shot back that no one cares what she thinks. As the argument continued, Radziwill revealed that Frankel called de Lesseps a “loser” in a text, and the countess shot back, “If I’m a loser, the rest of the world is f***ed.”
Frankel didn’t appreciate Radziwill bringing up texts – especially ones she says she doesn’t remember – and accused her former friend of betraying her and acting like a 7-year-old. At that point, Radziwill had enough and walked out, but they continued to argue throughout the night.
The SkinnyGirl mogul accused Radziwill of being into herself, her hair, fashion, selfies, and youth, and she wasn’t like that before. But Radziwill disagreed and said Frankel’s thoughts were “distorted.”
And then, as TooFab reports, the women got together a few days later for Frankel’s annual holiday party, and things continued to go downhill. Medley showed up with a nutcracker for Bryn, and Frankel didn’t show her any gratitude, so she looked disappointed.
Then Frankel jumped on Singer about her upcoming line of anti-aging products and criticized her for turning their gift exchange into an infomercial. This ticked off Singer, and she let Frankel know about it during an epic phone call.
After all that went down between the women in the episode, it ended with de Lesseps’ Christmas Eve arrest in Palm Beach and a teaser for next week about how her co-stars reacted to the news.
Despite being one of the original RHONY, it seems that Bethenny Frankel is losing friends left and right and rumors are swirling that she is willing to leave after this season.
New episodes of Real Housewives of New York air Wednesday nights on Bravo.
