A Real Housewives of New York City feud appears to be brewing between LuAnn de Lesseps and the returning Bethenny Frankel.
Last week, de Lesseps posted a photo to Instagram, which featured the cast of The Real Housewives of New York City. Noticeably absent from the photo was Frankel.
“#Girl’s night out. Love my #RHONY #ladies @kristentaekman @dorindamedley @sonjatmorgan @ramonasinger @caroleradziwill @iamheathert #latergram.”
One week prior, de Lesseps shared a red carpet photo of the cast, from which Frankel was also missing.
“We do the #RedCarpetLook so damn well. #RHONY #CountessLuannCollection @ny_resident @sonjatmorgan @ramonasinger @iamheathert @dorindamedley @kristentaekman.”
Because the cast is currently filming Season 7 of The Real Housewives of New York City, fans immediately wondered why Frankel wasn’t featured in de Leseps’ photos. Some even speculated that their could be a feud brewing between de Lesseps and Frankel.
On February 5, AllAboutTRH reported the following.
“LuAnn de Lesseps and Bethenny Frankel have never been super close during their time together on the Real Housewives of New York, and it seems that LuAnn might not be too happy with Bethenny’s return.”
“Recently, LuAnn posted several group photos of the NY Housewives on her Instagram and seems to have left Bethenny out completely. One of the pictures was even specifically tagged ‘#Girls night out. Love my #RHONY’ and there’s no mention of Bethenny at all.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, de Lesseps spoke of Frankel’s return to The Real Housewives of New York City during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live earlier this month.
“It’s funny to have Bethenny back, it’s like old times. It’s like the good old days,” de Lesseps said, according to a report by Real Mr. Housewife.
“This season she gets along with people you wouldn’t expect her to get along with and hates people that you wouldn’t expect. It’s exciting to watch her work it with all of the girls. We talk a lot about the old days, too.”
In an October 2013 blog post, Frankel officially announced she was returning to the show for Season 7.
“After many years of hesitation, I have decided to return to my roots on ‘The Real Housewives of New York City.’ I have been through a long and arduous road since my departure, and I’m finally coming out on the other side. It finally feels right to go home again.”
The Real Housewives of New York City Season 7 is expected to premiere later this year on Bravo.
