The battle rages on! Bethenny Frankel and Luann de Lesseps are still butting heads on The Real Housewives of New York City and Us Weekly has an exclusive first look at part 2 of the women’s epic showdown, which airs tonight.
As fans will recall, Frankel, 45, and de Lesseps, 51, launched into a war on the Wednesday, June 1, episode of RHONY. The Bravo personalities got into a screaming match at Dorinda Medley’s Berkshires home about whether the “Chic C’est la Vie” singer had or had not claimed to have participated in the creation of Frankel's Skinnygirl brand name — culminating in Frankel calling de Lesseps a “slut, liar and a hypocrite.”
The ladies attempt to make up in the clip above, but end up fighting again after Frankel takes aim at de Lesseps’ love life — and calls her out for romancing her now-fiancé, Thomas D’Agostino, who Ramona Singer briefly dated in fall 2015.
“I regret the way that I spoke because I don’t wanna be that person, but you bring out something, and it’s not just in me, where Ramona is an example of a person who doesn’t wanna, like, let her men meet you,” Frankel tells her frenemy. “That’s a real thing.”
“Of course, now, you know why?” de Lesseps responds. “Because I’m dating the guy that she would like to date, that’s why.”
Frankel then fires off yet another verbal tirade against de Lesseps, in which she alleges the Class With the Countess author sleeps with married men, among other things.
“The problem with you is that women don’t trust you. You have sex with married men and you cheat and you f--k younger guys,” an infuriated Frankel tells de Lesseps as Carole Radziwill (an avowed de Lesseps enemy) observes. “You criticize other people about the same thing that you do and you act like you’re holier than thou. And you wrote a book on etiquette, which is the most comical thing. So you just have to know that that’s what people think about you.”
To see how de Lesseps responds to Frankel’s insults, watch the video above. The Real Housewives of New York City airs on Bravo Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET.
