The tenth season of Real Housewives of New York just premiered this past week, and already, something seems to be wrong with star Bethenny Frankel. Her co-star Ramona Singer says that the demise of Frankel’s friendship with Carole Radziwill has changed the entire dynamic of the show and the Skinny Girl founder is not happy.
According to All About the Real Housewives, Singer revealed during US Weekly’s In Case You Missed It podcast that her friendship with Frankel hasn’t improved since last season, and after Frankel and Radziwill’s fight, everything on the show is different.
“A discord between Bethenny and Carole kind of affected the whole ambiance of the show, and all of a sudden this season, I’m like really close to Dorinda [Medley] and Carole,” said Singer. “Whatever happened between Bethenny and Carole happened between them.”
Singer went on to say that Frankel is not happy, but always crying or screaming. But, she hopes she will find happiness again.
Radziwill says that season ten is going to be an edge-of-your-seat experience for fans, and for her, it is all about setting goals and healthy boundaries. She says there is also a running theme of Frankel oddly fixating on her clothing.
The 54-year-old says that Frankel’s fascination with her clothes starts in the first episode and it doesn’t let up until the finale.
Frankel opted to ditch the RHONY premiere party this past week because, according to an insider, she is trying to distance herself from the show. Instead, she wants people to think of her as a business mogul instead of a desperate reality star.
Plus, the venue wasn’t serving Skinny Girl, so she didn’t want to attend if she didn’t have the opportunity to plug her brand – something she loves to do everywhere she goes.
Even though Frankel did press for the premiere the entire day, just minutes before the party, she called in sick, but a source claims she really didn’t attend because she was heading to Australia.
Frankel is usually the life of the party instead of being a no-show, but she has lately been in a nasty custody battle with her ex Jason Hoppy, and she also has an on-again, off-again relationship with Dennis Shields.
But, it could just be the fact that Bethenny Frankel’s friendship with Radziwill has dissolved and she could be considering leaving the show for good.
New episodes of Real Housewives of New York air Wednesday nights on Bravo.
