Bethenny Frankel is known for the self-deprecating and biting sense of humor she displays on The Real Housewives of New York City — often preaching the “zero f—” she has to give about the drama that comes her way. But on Wednesday’s all-new episode, the Skinnygirl mogul wasn’t laughing when a film from her past — in which she was nude — was brought up in the same context of her 6-year-old daughter.
The conversation took place at dinner in the Hamptons. As Carole Radziwill, Dorinda Medley and Luann (de Lesseps) D’Agostino chatted about the 2016 presidential election, Ramona Singer asked Frankel a pointed question about a shocking video that circulated in the tabloids at the time — which showed Frankel naked.
“I know stuff has resurfaced from your past. And I know, one time when I was with [my daughter Avery], someone showed her an article about one of my friends who kind of had naked pictures,” Singer, 60, said, seemingly referencing the nude photo scandal surrounding RHONY alum Alex McCord that prompted Singer to walk off the season 1 reunion.
“Somebody in school showed it to her and she called me up, like, appalled,” Singer continued. “Has anybody approached [your daughter Bryn] about it? You’re in the press now being naked and doing soft-porn. Has anybody approached your daughter? Have you explained to her the situation? Kids talk, they’re very sophisticated!”
Frankel looked puzzled, quickly making light of the situation. “At 6? Yeah. Diane Sawyer came to her school yard and actually approached her,” she snarked. “That was like 25 years ago! What am I supposed to do?”
The 46-year-old then went to explain the low-budget horror film — titled Hollywood Hills, 90028.
“I was in a movie when I was trying to be an actress in L.A.,” Frankel said. “I was laying topless in a scene on a rooftop — which is great because it shows that my boobs were big, which I like.”
“I don’t regret it at all,” she continued. “I needed the money and I wanted to be an actress. I have no issue with it whatsoever … It wasn’t porn. It was a cheesy movie. I think I was a murderer. But the scene in question, which I sent to Carole, is me having sex with this guy.”
That didn’t mean Frankel was happy about Singer bringing up the movie under the guise of whether someone had told her young daughter about it at school.
“Something stupid like that? I had no idea that anyone would bring it up nor would I have cared,” Frankel confessed to viewers. “If someone said, ‘What about that movie with your boobs hanging out?’ — I would have laughed. I would have joked about it. But Ramona attempting to embarrass me through my daughter whose in first grade is even low for Ramona.”
“Ramona loves to have something on someone and then to bring it up,” she said later. “Trying to ‘gotcha’ with my daughter in the same paragraph was disgusting. She’s a bad person.”
