‘RHONY’ Alum Kelly Bensimon Alleges Bethenny Frankel Did Not Care If She Miscarried Daughter Bryn! – Perez Hilton
Kelly Killoren Bensimon makes startling allegations against former costar Bethenny Frankel.
In an episode of the
While speaking to hosts David Yontef and Jess Rothschild, the model spoke out about season three’s infamous cast trip to the Virgin Islands, and how Frankel — reportedly pregnant with daughter Bryn Hoppy, now 9 — allegedly cared more about fame than her baby.
“She was pregnant this entire time and was having serious issues with her unborn child [Bryn] and she’s flying back and forth pretending to film with her dying father in L.A., but really just filming in the car and never saw him… And I’m like ‘You want me to film with a woman that doesn’t even care about her kid in her stomach?’ She’s like, ‘Oh, if I have a miscarriage whatever.’”
Bensimon alleged that Frankel had “serious complications” with her pregnancy, yet still continued production.
“She was having serious, serious, serious complications and I just didn’t understand why we were there filming and why she was even there in St. John.”
The 51-year-old also claimed that Frankel exaggerated her star power by telling a masseuse she was a famous movie star.
“I land in St. John, where we were filming, and I was getting a massage and the masseuse said did you know there’s a really big movie star here? And I was like, ‘Wow who is it?’ And they said her name is Bethenny Frankel. And I’m like… ‘Movie star?!’ Like, oh my god, she’s telling the masseuse that she’s a movie star?’”
Additionally, Kelly said Bethenny allegedly tried to act like RHONY‘s executive producer during scenes.
“She would literally scream into the camera, ‘This is not what what this scenes supposed to be about!’ and I was like, what is going on here? You can’t do that. It’s not fair. She’s trying to be the executive producer or the Kim [Kardashian West] of Housewives, fine… But, she created such a disconnect between Bravo and us [the cast], so there was so much animosity and underlying tension [throughout filming of Housewives].’”
When asked if producers would ever ask her back with Frankel, Bensimon responded:
“Probably not, because I would threaten her entire brand [Skinnygirl]. Hypothetically, If I went back on Housewives, and there was a moment where she was like, ‘Wow. I really like Kelly. Kelly Bensimon is hot s**t,’… her entire brand would go to s**t. Because her fans would be like, ‘Wait what? We’ve been spending 10 years hating Kelly Bensimon and now you like her? What?!’… It’s different from her makeup with [former RHONY Housewife/current guest] Jill Zarin because I am the ultimate, ultimate nemesis.’”
