Bethenny Frankel stopped by the set of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen to share her thoughts on Lisa Vanderpump’s epic falling out with Kyle Richards. Despite their explosive feud this season, the Real Housewives of New York star is confident that Richards and Vanderpump will make amends before the year is out.
Frankel has many connections with the cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and knows a thing or two about their friendships. The Skinnygirl mogul, for example, has been friends with Richards for several years and is also good pals with Lisa Rinna.
Furthermore, any “takedown” accusations are absurd. Sometimes, a group gets fatigued from a castmates’ actions & communicates on & off camera. @KyleRichards is real friends with @LisaVanderpump & I was expressing that LVP is not one to take that lying down.

This season, Frankel has been in contact with Rinna and believes that Richards is open to salvaging her friendship with Vanderpump.
“Based on the way that Kyle’s talking, I don’t think it will be over – over,” Frankel explained, adding that the drama this season has been “intense.”
The drama has primarily revolved around the dog Dorit Kemsley adopted from Vanderpump’s pet rescue and later gave away. According to All About The Real Housewives, Vanderpump denies any involvement in the scandal and says she did not tell any of her co-stars about what went down with Kemsley.
On a recent episode, Richards confronted Vanderpump at her house about her involvement, informing her that everyone thinks she had a hand in spreading the rumors.
A shocked Vanderpump quickly denied the accusations. The argument got so heated that Vanderpump’s husband, Ken Todd, stepped in and kicked Richards out of the house.
Lisa Vanderpump later admitted that she reacted emotionally to the situation and could have handled things differently. Kyle Richards has also admitted that she misses Vanderpump’s friendship, which is a good indication that their relationship may not be over just yet.

Only time will tell if Bethenny Frankel’s prediction comes true. Given all of her experience on RHONY, it’s a safe bet that she is on the right track.
Fans can watch the drama unfold when new episodes of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills air Tuesday nights on Bravo.
