bethenny frankel gi large 'The View': Bethenny Frankel reveals spinoff caused 'Real Housewives' rift with Jill Zarin

“Bethenny Getting Married?” chronicles many of Bethenny Frankel’s causes for celebration: Tying the knot, having a first child and making a successful brand for herself.

Unfortunately, it’s this “Real Housewives of New York City” spinoff show that’s at the heart of why her friendship dissolved with fellow NYC housewife Jill Zarin.

“What really was the impetus was she told my castmates not to film with me on ‘Housewives’ because why help me out on my new show, in order to spin out,” she tells the ladies on “The View” Thursday, June 10. “For me, that was messing around with my livelihood, and I took that really personally.”

She adds, “I really do wish Jill the best and you never know what will happen in the future, but right now there are so many positive, pure things going on in my life that I don’t want to dig up that [skeleton].”

Frankel, in a cute polkadot dress and red shoes, seems to identify with Elisabeth Hasselbeck the most during the interview since they’re both young career moms.

]]>On returning to “Real Housewives” Season 4: “It is really ugly and it’s why I may not come back if it were this same cast. Truthfully my own show is not like that. It’s humorous and it’s emotional but it’s not because I walk into a party in a ballgown and slap somebody in the face. I think intelligent shows don’t have to be such a train wreck.” About baby Bryn’s personality: “She’s unbelievable and really sweet. I think she has her father’s personality.” About Bryn’s future involvement on “Bethenny Getting Married?”: “It’s her choice in life if she wants to be on it. This isn’t ‘Jon & Kate.'” Follow Zap2it and Zap2itHanh on Twitter and Zap2it on Facebook  for the latest TV, movie and celebrity news. Photo credit: Getty
