RHONY alum Bethenny Frankel slams Andy Cohen for 'rewarding bad behavior' and claims 'inmates are running the asylum'

REAL Housewives of New York City alum Bethenny Frankel slammed Andy Cohen for "rewarding bad behavior" and claimed "inmates are running the asylum."

The 49-year-old made the claims during a recent interview with ET Canada.

While talking to the outlet, Bethenny said of the Bravo franchise: "There's a shakeup across Real Housewives.

"I feel like the inmates are running the asylum. The content of the show is that bad behavior gets rewarded.

"You know, it's like the upside down."

The RHONY alum added that she has spoken to Bravo boss Andy, 52, about the issue.

Bethenny continued: "I said to Andy, to his face, you can't reward bad behavior.

"You know, we're still technically employees. Money drives the whole machine.

"Any woman who tells you they're doing the Housewives and it's not because the money is lying."

Bethenny starred on the first three seasons of RHONY before returning as a housewife in the seventh season.

She exited the popular series last year during the eleventh season.

It was reported earlier this week that the TV personality split from Paul Bernon after two years of dating.

The alleged breakup comes as Bethenny's divorce with ex-husband Jason Hoppy still has not been finalized eight years after they separated.

According to Us Weekly, Bethenny and Paul broke up "a couple weeks ago."

The former couple began dating in October 2018 when they were first spotted getting close in Boston, while Bethenny shared photos of the two spending time together in the Hamptons earlier this summer.

While appearing on Watch What Happens Live, Andy asked Bethenny: "Are you and Paul talking marriage?"

The former reality star shockingly replied: "I'm still married!"

Bethenny and Jason, 50, tied the knot and welcomed daughter Bryn in 2010.

They filed for divorce three years later.

Back in 2019, Jason's matrimonial attorney Robert Wallack told Page Six: “Jason and Bethenny are still technically married.

“While Jason has been pushing for years to have the judge sign the divorce judgment, Bethenny’s lawyers have objected.”

RHONY recently wrapped its twelfth season.

It was recently announced that TV host and lawyer Eboni K. Williams joined the series as the first black cast member.

Eboni joins the cast after Dorinda Medley was fired and Tinsley Mortimer chose to leave the show.
