During a September 24 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel said that Erika Jayne from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills left a bad first impression.

During the episode, Cohen asked Frankel which Housewife left the worst first impression, Frankel said that it was Jayne. However, Frankel followed by saying that her first impression of Jayne was wrong and that she ended up actually liking her. Frankel also added that Jayne is “super talented.”

Frankel was a member of The Real Housewives of New York during the first three seasons, and then re-joined once again for seasons seven through 11. Although Frankel is no longer on the show, she is still close to Cohen and a few of her fellow castmates, like Dorinda Medley.

Frankel Recently Spoke About Other Members of ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’

It seems like Frankel definitely knows what’s going on in the world of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, because a few weeks ago, Frankel took to Twitter to voice her opinion on the show. On September 9, Frankel weighed in on the news that Denise Richards was leaving the franchise. Frankel tweeted, “I haven’t seen but I’ve heard. I know & like @DENISE_RICHARDS She should live her life BUT she is on a reality show where someone’s always winning & someone’s losing. In the words of the wise prophet @CarolineManzo if you hang out with trash you start to smell like garbage.’”

However, during her appearance on the September 24 episode of Watch What Happens Live, Frankel clarified that she did not mean to call anyone trash and that she was not calling anyone in particular trash. Many fans were speculating that her comments were aimed towards Brandi Glanville.

Over the summer, Andy Cohen posted a photo to his Instagram of him and Frankel hanging out. This had many fans wondering if Frankel was going to come back to The Real Housewives of New York, as many were speculating that perhaps they were hanging out because they had cut a new deal. However, Frankel quickly shut those rumors down. On July 31, Frankel tweeted, “I AM NOT COMING BACK.”

During a July 2020 interview with Fortune, Frankel said that she was “stunned” to find out that fans even wanted her back. “I honestly am stunned,” Frankel told Fortune. “I haven’t been watching. I saw the first episode and part of another one, so I don’t know what’s going on there. There’s a lot of talk about what’s going on there, and I read comments that people say to me, ‘Please come back,’ and ‘Please save the show.’ It’s all flattering, and I wish the girls well. I’m doing other things though, and I just don’t know how that really would fit into my life as is.”
