No green-eyed monsters here! Bethenny Frankel took to her blog late on Wednesday, July 6, to answer Luann de Lesseps’ claims that the other women on Real Housewives of New York City are just jealous of her new relationship.
As Us Weekly reported, de Lesseps announced during a big reunion dinner that her new love, Tom D’Agostino Jr., had been shopping for rings and was clearly excited about the prospect of becoming his fiancée. But things turned messy when Sonja Morgan decided it would be kind to point out that she’d been friends with benefits with Tom for the past decade (Tom also has a history with Ramona Singer).
De Lesseps stormed out of the dinner and spoke to the camera later about how her Housewives pals had reacted. “It’s a jealousy thing. I think they cannot stand that I found my soulmate and that I am truly happy and in love. I think it pissed them off. There’s a certain amount of ‘Huh, it should be me,’” she said.
Frankel took serious issue with this claim on her Bravo blog! “Wow. I can say many things but one I am certain about is that no one is jealous of Luann’s relationship with Tom,” she blasted. “At this point, we are really hoping it is real and that Luann is happy, but no one is jealous. Fact.”
And what about the fact that Tom isn’t exactly, well, new to the desperate Housewives gang?
“So three people at this table have been with Tom? I mean the Upper East Side is small, but Manhattan is huge. Something smells fishy,” Frankel added. “Why the rush? What is it with this guy swimming in one tiny fishbowl? I’m feeling my usual skeptical self,” she cautioned.
