Bethenny Frankel has had ongoing drama with several members of the Real Housewives of New York City and sparked controversy with Martha Stewart after appearing on The Apprentice, with Frankel claiming that she and Stewart almost did a TV project together despite not being friends.
Bethenny Frankel, known for her time on The Real Housewives of New York City, shocked fans when she revealed a long-standing feud with Martha Stewart. The conflict arose after Frankel appeared as a contestant on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart in 2005, where she claimed to have had a less-than-pleasant experience with the lifestyle guru. During an episode of her podcast “Just B with Bethenny Frankel,” she revealed, “We’re definitely not friends, but we almost did this TV project together despite the fact that she can’t stand me. And I can’t really stand her either.”
The tension between Frankel and Stewart stemmed from alleged misunderstandings and ultimately led to Frankel being fired by Stewart. Frankel shared that Stewart’s parting words were particularly hurtful, as Stewart reportedly told her, “Bethenny, you’re pushy, you’re a show-off and you feel the need to make a physical impression which is not entirely necessary at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.” The revelation of this feud was unexpected, as fans were unaware of the strained relationship between the two media personalities.
Despite Frankel’s claims, Martha Stewart has yet to comment on the allegations, leaving fans curious about the other unexpected feuds that Frankel might have encountered. This revelation offered a glimpse into the world of celebrity conflicts, showing that drama can arise even outside of reality TV shows like The Real Housewives of New York City. As fans eagerly await Stewart’s response, it’s clear that this particular feud has sparked interest and raised eyebrows.
