Ever since Bethenny Frankel launched her war on NBCUniversal and Bravo, with bombshell claims that reality stars are manipulated, plied with booze and the victims of revenge porn, tongues have been wagging about who is supporting the former “Real Housewives of New York” star and who is #TeamBravo.
Overwhelmingly, it seems like people are behind Bravo—especially current cast members. After all, why bite the hand that feeds you?
According to Frankel, she has over 80 reality TV personalities in her camp or who have reached out for more details of the lawsuit, which has not been filed yet, and the proposed union.
Her lurid accusations were followed this week by an explosive incident on “Below Deck: Down Under,” which saw cast member Luke Jones fired when he entered a sleeping Margot Sisson’s bunk without clothes or permission, prompting a production member to break the fourth wall and intervene.
Now, stars are accusing her of being ungrateful and hypocritical. “S–tting on the house that made her,” one source said.
One RH source sniped that Frankel would “still be selling cookies in the supermarket if it wasn’t for appearing on the Housewives,” referring to one of Frankel’s first business endeavors, Bethenny Bakes.
Another source said the brash businesswoman is bragging at parties in the Hamptons that “she is going to bring down Bravo” and “not to cross her.”
This scare tactic is not going over well, according to multiple Housewives.
Frankel has tagged a series of stars, giving the impression they are her supporters. Among them are Paige DeSorbo, Tom Sandoval, Stassi Schroeder, Hannah Berner and cast members from the “Real Housewives,” “Love Is Blind,” “Below Deck,” and “Vanderpump Rules”
Page Six reached out to those tagged and, with some exceptions, either didn’t receive a response or were told “no comment.” Frankel, too, declined to be interviewed through her publicist.
