Bethenny Frankel found herself knee-deep in a beef with Ramona Singer this season on The Real Housewives of New York City following comments that Ramona made to the Skinnygirl mogul about a film she made back in the '90s and whether she's talked to her daughter about certain topless scenes in it. And while viewers may be tuning in every week to see what twists the relationship takes next, Bethenny has been a little bit too busy to focus on any of the drama currently unraveling week after week.
"I feel fine. I have so much going on. I have a beautiful daughter who just turned 7. I have my Skinnygirl brand, my charity, B Strong. I'm producing this television show. I have another big announcement... So I've got a lot going on," she told The Daily Dish at the NBCUniversal Upfront on Monday. "So Housewives is amazing and NBC is my family, but I don't even watch my own show half the time. It's hard. I live it."
Ramona recently spoke to The Daily Dish about her dinner party confrontation with Bethenny, sharing how she feels now about her decision to bring up Bethenny's past in that moment in the Hamptons.
"I think all of us on the show that have children, our children come No. 1. So I was kind of surprised by Bethenny's reaction when I was bringing up her daughter because I wasn't bringing up her daughter to talk about her daughter. But I just came back from Avery, visiting her at college [and] having a special experience with her. And then I'm out of concern, like mommy to mommy, 'Hey, what's going on with you and your daughter and this school because things like have an impact?' I know when I'm in the press for something that's negative, hey Avery's friends can read it," Ramona explained. "People talk, and it came out of concern, not to put her on the spot or to embarrass her. And I was really shocked at her reaction, how things all turned out. Of course, I admit my delivery might not have been the best but, hey, what can I say?"
