Bethenny Frankel has been accused of being “boring” on upcoming episodes of Real Housewives of New York. Producers need drama to bring the ratings. However, Bethenny is tired of them contriving situations just to make good television.
“Bethenny is feeling the pressure to deliver,” claimed a Real Housewives insider. After months of being called boring by producers, and called fake by the rest of the cast for playing nice, she is getting “pushed and prodded” into starting drama. Since that’s what she’s being paid for.
The source explained, “Bravo has tried getting Bethenny in group situations, but she’s not really having it,” adding “She feels these situations are too forced.”
“Whenever her marriage is discussed, Bethenny walks off the set,” added the source. “She basically is refusing to discuss anything private.” On the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Porsha Williams was demoted for withholding information about her personal life (reportedly because she was/ is dating a married man).
Previously, sources said the “old Bethenny” doesn’t exist anymore and post-separation Bethenny isn’t interesting to watch on television. They explained Bethenny’s reluctance over sharing: “After her ugly divorce, talk show flop and her business empire falling apart, she is now very guarded.”
