Il 4 novembre, Bethenny Frankel ha annunciato che sarebbe tornata alle sue radici “The Real Housewives of New York City” con il suo nuovo podcast, “ReWives”, tramite il suo Instagram. “Tornerò alle casalinghe… alle mie condizioni… e MENZIONERÒ TUTTO! … Questo è REWIVES, un nuovo podcast su @iheartradio in cui parlo con un’icona , media intelligenti o personalità dell’intrattenimento e abbattere dettagli intimi e storie dietro le quinte di episodi epici e iconici di casalinghe “, ha detto ai fan.
Producer Andy Cohen expressed surprise at Frankel's new podcast. "She's been trashing the show for the last three years. So I was like, 'She's been talking about that it's toxic' ... and now she's doing a 'Housewives' recap podcast," he shared on Radio Andy. Following Cohen's statement, Frankel opened up about how she felt about her friend's dig.
Bethenny Frankel thinks Andy Cohen is annoyed about her podcast
Bethenny Frankel made an appearance on "Today" and was asked about Andy Cohen's recent comments regarding her new podcast. "We totally are pals and we take beach walks and most of what we talk about on those walks is the Housewives," Frankel revealed. She told hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager that she had texted Cohen about "ReWives" and he had replied, "Oh fun, glad to see you embracing the Housewives."
Frankel acknowledged Cohen's comment about being "shocked" at the news but stated, "But there's no conflict. We're both in this business and we're also friends ... I don't think he cares personally. He's probably a little annoyed ... It's a great idea and it's exploded and the numbers are insane. So I'm sure he and some housewives are a little irritated." When asked if she had spoken to Cohen recently, Frankel replied, "I haven't talked to him since. He told the press but didn't text me." However, she coyly joked that they would talk about it on her podcast first so that she could get all the ratings.
Since Frankel's departure from "RHONY" after Season 11, she and Cohen have remained tight and even hang out together in the Hamptons, per E! News. It's probably safe to say that Cohen's irritation over her podcast will subside and they may soon be bickering over whose talk show ratings are higher.
