Bethenny Frankel was in stitches over details about the royal family in Prince Harry’s new memoir, “Spare,” with the former “Real Housewives of New York City” star joking that the Duke of Sussex should have named his book “Mention It All.”

Frankel posted a video on Instagram on January 6 sharing her reaction to Prince Harry’s memoir, which was accidentally leaked to the public ahead of its scheduled release.

“Is it too late to change the name of Harry’s book to ‘Dirty Harry Laundry’?” she joked. “I mean it’s crazy! How much more? Are we going with Meghan [Markle] to get a pap smear? I mean, what’s next? Honestly, I feel like I’m going to be in a rectal exam with Harry and William.”

Frankel laughed, “We get it. We got it. I mean, what else are we gonna do? Like, high colonics with the royals? We understand that s*** went down, it’s family stuff.”

The former RHONY star said that while she previously thought Meghan and Harry should stop talking about the royals, she’d since had a change of heart.

“Now I’m leaning in,” Frankel said in the video. “Say more, so I can say more. Keep it going. I want to hear what’s gonna happen next.”

However, Frankel said she is “not going to buy or read” the controversial memoir.

“I will not pay the money,” she said.

Frankel also suggested Prince Harry should have named his book “Mention It All,” after her iconic RHONY line.

“It’s mention it all! Oh my god! Harry should have named his book Mention it All! I’m dying!” she laughed.

Bethenny Frankel Said She Lost a Lot of Money Following Her Critical Comments of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle

In the caption to her video post, Frankel opened up on about her past criticisms of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, explaining that she came under fire for saying “cry me a river” about their situation, as Huffpost reported.

The former RHONY star claimed she “lost hundreds of thousands in deals” for making negative remarks about the royal transplants, but that she was now “doubling down.” She wrote, “Racism exists in the world & perhaps in the monarchy. These two seem to have disliked their two years before exile. We get it. Many of us believe some of it.”

Frankel added that the media circus surrounding the famous couple had become “comical” and reminded her of babies who “need to be picked up every time they cry.”

But while discussing the couple on her podcast “Just B with Bethany Frankel” in November 2022, the entrepreneur said that, despite her criticisms of Harry and Meghan, she didn’t believe they were “bad people.”

“If I met Harry and if I met Meghan, would I think that they were nice people, kind people? I probably would,” Frankel said. “I know that we’ve read conflicting reports, but I don’t think they’re bad, diabolical people that shouldn’t be in any position of power or fame or role models.”

Her frustration with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, she explained, was their inability to “get out of their own way” by continuously airing their family’s dirty laundry.

“I went through the most horrible divorce that you could ever even imagine, and I kept my mouth shut,” Frankel said, adding that she was tempted to speak publicly to set the record straight. “I controlled myself, because you’re just adding gasoline to a fire.”

Frankel also took issue with the Sussexes multiple media and humanitarian projects, describing their career strategy as “jamming all this stuff into a big stew and it’s a big pot of s***.”

“‘Let’s go with Oprah, Let’s do a Vanity Fair cover, let’s do a puppet show, let’s do a bake sale,'” she joked. “They are incapable of making a good decision because they want to just get their words out so badly, they want to get their message out. And they’re running in circles.”

During the podcast “rant”, Frankel advised the rogue royals to stop “playing checkers” with the royal family and learn to “play chess” instead.

“Less is more,” she said. “Play chess. For somebody who was in the royal family for even a minute you need to know that f****** chess board, and who’s king and who’s queen.”

Prince Harry’s Memoir ‘Spare’, Which Is Very Critical of His Family, Was Leaked a Few Days Ahead of Its Release

Prince Harry’s book, set for release on January 10, was leaked days early, setting off a media firestorm. Cosmopolitan reported the disgruntled prince shared lurid details about feuds with his brother, Prince William, his brother’s wife, Kate Middleton, his father, King Charles III, and his stepmother, Camilla, Queen Consort.

In a New York Times book review, the royal tell-all was described as a “full-throated renunciation of fame and royalty with all its punishing invasions of privacy,” but noted Princess Diana’s youngest son had “traded his proximity to the throne for the No. 1 spot on cushioned chairs opposite Oprah and Anderson Cooper.” The reviewer added that between the couple’s six-part Netflix documentary series and Harry’s new memoir, the Sussexes “might well be overexposed.”

Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace have so far refused to comment on Prince Harry’s claims in “Spare,” including that he was physically assaulted by his brother following an argument about Meghan Markle, the BBC reported.
