Bethenny Frankel responded to Jill Zarinthe suggestion that she came to her late husband’s funeral, Bobby Zarinfor publicity in Thursday’s episode of Watch live what’s happening†
After Jill’s criticism of her former boyfriend, Real Housewives of New York City alum denied Jill’s allegations against her and asked host Andy Cohen to reveal what really happened prior to the memorial.
“I don’t have any cameras. So I didn’t bring any cameras,” Bethenny said on the May 19 episode WWHLturned to host Andy and added, “And I remember you and I having a discussion and you told me she wanted… Why don’t you tell me?”
“I think she invited us,” he replied. “I think she said, ‘If you want to cover this funeral… If you want to include it on the show,’ by the way, which we did because he was an important part of the show.”
When Bethenny asked if he thinks or knows that, Andy clarified, “I know.”
As for her relationship with Fredrik Eklundwho played alongside her in 2017 Bethenny & FredrikBethenny told a WWHL viewer that fans shouldn’t hold their breath for a second season of the show.
‘I haven’t spoken to Frederik for a minute. I think I asked him for a real estate agent recommendation… Not in New York City. Some other place where he doesn’t work. So I haven’t spoken to him in over a minute… He moved to LA. I did my solo real estate projects, moved places, but I got a little tired. I just don’t want to do that much anymore,” she explained.
Another viewer wanted to know why Bethenny started sharing makeup-related TikToks after shading Tinsley Mortimer and Carole Radziwill because they care too much about their own makeup.
‘I’m not particularly vain. It’s important to me that I never knew how to do it,’ Bethenny clarified.
And while Ramona Singer is rarely praised for her behavior, Bethenny gave her former RHONY co-starred a shoutout after learning she was doing cameos to support her nonprofit BStrong.
“Breaking news, Ramona Singer… She texted me she’s Ukrainian and later I hear she’s doing cameos to support Bstrong. [But she] not asked for credit. And I always say that credit seekers don’t get credit. She didn’t seek the credit and she got the credit,” Bethenny said. “And here we are on live television … Ramona Singer, the Ukrainians thank you.”
Also on WWHLBethenny, who is known for her Skinnygirl brand, responded to possible hypocrisy after criticism Kim Kardashian for setting a bad example by losing 16 pounds in two weeks by cutting out carbs and sugar to fit into her Met Gala dress (which had previously been worn by Marilyn Monroe).
“First of all, I think I made Skinnygirl about 13 years ago for a low-calorie margarita. When it comes to food and drink, I have no problem with a little less calories so people can indulge,” she explains. “My clothing line runs up to size 32. My books are about pampering and allowing. But I’m launching a swim line that Bethenny is called because that’s where the line is, about clothes and bodies and things like that, so in the future it would be more ‘Bethenny’, but I have no problem with ‘Skinnygirl’ in food products.”
In response to Bethenny’s comments about Jill, Jill .’s daughter Ally Shapiro went to the comments section of WWHL’s Instagram post to respond.
Ally wrote: “There’s so much I want to say.” She declined to comment on her comments, however.
