RHONY alum Bethenny Frankel has been one of the biggest catalysts for drama in the reality TV world as of late. This is largely due to her reality reckoning movement that seeks to make things fair for reality stars across the board.
However, she has also been in the news recently thanks to NeNe Leaks removing all mention of Bethenny from her Instagram. This got fans talking about the idea that NeNe might be returning to RHOA as producers work to put together a cast for season 16.
Now, Bethenny is responding to the claims that there is trouble between her and the former RHOA darling. Not only that, but she claims to have texts from Andy proving that the door is closed to NeNe returning. On top of that, Bethenny revealed who she thinks will never be invited back to Bravo.
Recently, Bethenny discussed NeNe removing all mentions of the interview they did together on her ReWives podcast. Luckily, the Bye Wig Hello Drama TikTok page posted part of the episode.
She starts this part of the episode by saying, “This is my opinion. I don’t know anything. So NeNe, they call it scrubbed, our interview here from her Instagram. I didn’t know that, but people thought something of it.”
She went on to say that she asked NeNe about it, and she said she cleans up her Instagram page from time to time. Of course, this is the same answer NeNe has previously given as to why she deleted Bethenny.
She later says, “People were saying that maybe means she’s going back to the show. I guess she followed Bravo, or Bravo followed her. She said to me, girl, I haven’t spoken to them and don’t believe anything… And I always followed Bravo. I think they just started following me.”
Bethenny then went on to claim that Andy has “had a very strong opinion of NeNe” and that she has thousands of texts to prove it. However, she also says she would never reveal private text messages.
The former RHONY star also confirmed that NeNe is “blackballed” by saying, “She has been persona non grata at Bravo, and she has definitely been blackballed. That’s a fact. I know that because I wanted to do something with her, but she was blackballed by Andy, by the production companies. Like that’s a fact. That happened.”
She continued, “But time heals all wounds, and maybe now since that show [RHOA] isn’t doing so well, they would like her back or are thinking about her because Bravo is the land of Jill Zarin recorded Andy on his own show, and he was so furious. Then he had her back. I think in another sit-down, and then he had her come back on Ultimate Girl’s Trip and do guest appearances.”
However, another bombshell dropped when Bethenny said that she and Carole are the only two people Bravo will never have back. According to her, they are the only two who have “really scorched the kingdom.”
She then clarified that if NeNe wants to go back to RHOA, then she should. She admits that NeNe hasn’t worked in years, and she understands that people have bills to pay. Bethenny also confirmed that NeNe was never required to promote their podcast and that they are “great.”
