Andy Cohen has always been the host of the Real Housewives of New York reunion shows, and he’s never held back with his questions. And it wasn’t any different this season, as he kept digging for information about Bethenny Frankel’s divorce, her new relationship, and Dorinda Medley’s supposed drug use.
During the reunion, it was revealed that Dorinda supposedly does cocaine on occasion with her boyfriend, John Mahdessian. But it sounds like Frankel isn’t too happy with the way Andy has been asking certain questions, and the two supposedly had a fight after the reunion was over.

According to a new Radar Online report, Andy Cohen and Bethenny got into a heated argument after the reunion, because she didn’t want certain questions coming from him. It’s no secret that Bethenny and Andy have a close friendship, and he even visited her on her talk show, Bethenny, when it was airing. There have even been rumors about Frankel being a producer on The Real Housewives of New York, but that’s something Andy Cohen has denied. Now, it sounds like their friendship may be in trouble, as Cohen may have crossed the line.

Apparently, Cohen asked her “a couple [of questions during] the reunion about other’s drug use. Bethenny really didn’t want to get involved in that drama and they made her,” the source has revealed about the feud, adding that she also got angry with Andy Cohen for asking her questions about Dennis Shields and about her divorce from Jason Hoppy.
While Bethenny could make accusations against Luann de Lesseps’ relationship, she wanted her own to be left out of the discussion.
But it sounds like someone may have planted these questions to purposefully bring up some painful topics for Frankel. Apparently, Andy Cohen didn’t want to play favorites during the reunion, and he didn’t hold back at all when it came to the tough questions.

“Andy purposely brought that up and other things that made her look bad,” the source told Radar Online, adding, “She was upset at him — and she demanded a producing credit for talking about Luann’s cheating fiancé on camera.”
Apparently, Andy Cohen and Bethenny met after the reunion for a production meeting, and it sounds like she wasn’t too happy about how things went down. The two apparently exchanged some heated words.
It is possible that they were discussing the upcoming season of the show and Frankel was thinking about leaving the show behind. She’s already said that the show was draining, and this could be why.

“Andy explained neither he nor the network ever agreed to that and she got angry and threatened to leave the show unless she was paid $2 million to film, which the network is refusing to cough up,” the source revealed about Andy Cohen’s argument with Frankel.
Of course, she’s already being paid the most out of all of the housewives in all of the cities, including NeNe Leakes’ $1 million paycheck. Now, Frankel wants more money to film the show, but Andy Cohen may not have that in his budget. He’s already considering what to do with The Real Housewives of Dallas, and The Real Housewives of New York has survived without Bethenny once before.
What do you think of Andy Cohen’s supposed feud with Bethenny? Do you think he turned his back on her during the reunion?
