Skinnygirl mogul Bethenny Frankel is seemingly on the outs with her co-stars on the Real Housewives of New York because the ladies are tired of her “mean and entitled” attitude. According to insiders, Frankel is no longer the smart, funny girl next door that everyone liked during the first seasons of the show. Her castmates want her gone. So now that she is fighting with her best friend, Carole Radziwill, will Frankel find a way to leave the show?
Radziwill told Frankel that she needed a break from their friendship because she is done with people seeing her as Frankel’s puppet and “every time we’re together, you’re aggressive with me.”
The other women backed Radziwill up, and it got Frankel fuming. Insiders claim that the 47-year-old immediately called producers and tried to quit the show, but they forced her to continue filming.
But, a source close to Frankel denies those claims and says it would take a lot more than Radziwill to get Frankel to leave the show.
A spokesperson for Bravo and Frankel herself have denied that the Skinnydipping author attempted to resign, saying there is “no truth” to the “ridiculous” claim.
Frankel and Radziwill used to do everything together, but after multiple arguments during filming – the worst being in the Berkshires – Radziwill no longer wants anything to do with her former bestie.
Both the cast and production crew have grown frustrated with Frankel during filming this season because she has been slacking off.
“Here is the highest paid cast member constantly saying that she is unavailable or too busy, and then we see her on yet another vacation or out at her Hamptons home. It’s beyond frustrating and a slap in the face to the other women who always make themselves available to film – as it is their job!” revealed an insider.
The source went on to say that Frankel doesn’t even bother to do it on the down low. Instead, she flaunts it without a care in the world, and her Instagram story is basically an “F-U” to everyone on the show who is doing their job.
But, when someone calls her out on her behavior, Frankel can’t take it.
The production crew is at their wits end with the reality star, especially after a recent trip to Puerto Rico. A production source says that when Frankel was there, she attempted to appear as the second coming of Mother Teresa, but she was incredibly mean to crew members and threatened to have one fired after they got lost during production.
Her shocking treatment of this crew member included screaming and threatening that she could end his career.
Frankel’s behavior behind the camera was completely opposite from how she appeared on camera. The production team found it amusing that she would be all “namaste” and charitable when cameras were rolling, but as soon as they went off, she would yell at the crew and make a trip to a disaster zone even worse.
As for Radziwill, she has been having fun on social media lately by stripping down and taking a “cheeky” photo with the caption “Kiss my ass.”
The usually low-key reality star posed for the pic in just a bra and panties and fans were impressed with the 50-year-old’s hot body.
She is also clearing out her closet by selling some clothes on Poshmark, giving fans the opportunity to buy some iconic pieces from RHONY history.
Watch Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill’s relationship unravel when Season 10 of Real Housewives of New York premieres Wednesday, April 4th on Bravo.
