Bethenny Frankel just may prove my prediction that all the Real Housewives of New York City will return for Season 4 wrong. Because in a recent interview she couldn’t have been clearer: If Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon will be back, she won’t. ”The whole of NBC Universal doesn’t have enough money for me to hang out with Jill and Kelly right now.”
And so can we assume she and Zarin didn’t patch things up? “We’re not friends. We don’t have anything to do with each other.”
She also dished on baby Bryn, her dog Cookie, breastfeeding in front of the crew and criticism regarding her baby weight.
On her dog Cookie: Her dog now protects Bryn the way she protects Bethenny. Cookie is like “Kevin Costner in The Bodyguard.”
On the crew seeing her breasts: She says her entire crew has seen her breasts since she’s breastfeeding and it’s “no big deal” because her breasts are like “milk devices.”
On losing the baby weight: She says her weight has become an “international scandal” and warns that pregnancy isn’t a “free time where you’re supposed to have five pieces of pizza (or cheesecake) and it’s not gonna show up somewhere.”
On which attributes she hope Bryn gets from her: Her “drive and sense of humor.”
On which Housewife would make the best babysitter: Ramona for a short stint because she is “neurotic” and would make sure to do everything exactly right and Alex for longer-term because she is “sweet.” Unsurprisingly, she’s not calling Jill and Kelly to watch Bryn…
