Friends, coworkers, or nothing?
Bethenny Frankel is not holding back on how she feels about Andy Cohen’s “What What Happens Live” talk show.
Frankel, 52, and fellow “Real Housewives” alum NeNe Leaks, 55, discussed Cohen, 55, on her “Just B” podcast and called the host out for making his guests on the late-night show feel like there’ being “f–king skinned alive.”
“The last time I went on that show, I was with my daughter, and … he’s asking these questions like, ‘Who’s the ugliest Housewife?’ And you’re like, ‘Oh, let me think.’ Like a question that bad,” Frankel recalled of the “Real Housewives’” executive producer stirring up the pot.
“Like, who is the worst mother?” the Skinnygirl liquor founder continued. “Questions that are so problematic —asking Jill’s Zarin’s mother ‘is this good for the Jews or bad for the Jews?’ then mentioning Ron Jeremy.”
“All these things, that somehow he’s like, always protected, and we’re always f–king skinned alive with Tabasco sauce all over us, naked, because I saw the thing — who is the the bitchiest housewife or most dramatic?”
A heated Frankel continued, “We’re out there and we get thrown like pieces of meat to just get ripped apart by that vehicle that we kiss the a– to get on. … And we all play the god d— f—ing game, because we’re using him like he’s using us, because we want to promote our s—. But it all just seems so gross.”
The Post has contacted reps for Frankel and Cohen for comment.
Leaks had her own public battle with Cohen when she left “RHOA” in 2020. In April 2020, she sued Cohen, NBCUniversal, Bravo, and production companies True Entertainment and Truly Original over hostile working conditions and discrimination.
Leaks dropped the case in August 2022.
Frankel left “RHONY” in 2019.
