Bethenny Frankel is called a ‘total b***h’ by former colleague Jessica Kirson… after ex-RHONY star slammed Meghan Markle
Comedian Jessica Kirson has accused Bethenny Frankel of being a ‘total b***h’ when they worked together.
Comedian Jessica Kirson hit out at Bethenny Frankel on Sunday, calling her a ‘total b***h’ after the Bravo star attacked Meghan Markle
‘I was the warm up comic on your failed morning talk show and you were a total bitch to me.’ Kirson, who is Zach Braff’s step-sister, wrote on Sunday.
‘For months you never said hello and you ordered me around like a dog. One day I walked off set because I had enough of your s***. Have a great day!’ the New York-based stand-up comedian added.
Frankel’s talk show, which was titled Bethenny, ran for 170 episodes, between 2012 and 2014.
Kirson was replying to Frankel’s post about the Duchess of Sussex which poked fun at her privilege and criticized the former actress for not being able to handle ‘two years’ of being part of the British institution.
‘Cry me a river… the plight of being a game show host, fairly unknown actress, to suffering in a palace, w tiaras & 7 figure weddings for TWO WHOLE YEARS to being a household name w @Oprah on speed dial, fetching 7 m for interviews, hundreds of millions in media deals. #MARRY’ the reality star wrote on Twitter on Sunday ahead of Meghan and Harry’s explosive sit down with Oprah.
‘Total b***h’: Kirson – who once worked with Frankel – chimed in as she recalled her unpleasant experience with the former Real Housewives star during her stint as a warm-up act on Frankel’s talk show
Selling Sunset’s Chrishell Stause also joined in the discussion and came to Markle’s defense against Frankel.
‘Not a white housewife comparing her struggle to Meghan’s. A woman of color joining the Royal Family. It’s the delusion for me. Everyone is working overtime trying to silence her. Let us hear what she has to say!’ Stause wrote.
Frankel later apologized to Markle for her remarks after she watched the Oprah interview which aired on CBS on Sunday night.
The 50-year-old TV star took to Twitter writing: ‘I watched M & H sit down. Emotional distress & racism must feel suffocating & powerless. I’m a polarizing, unfiltered(often to a fault)flawed person w a voice. When I heard of the interview,during a pandemic, it felt like a surprising choice. I’m sorry if it hurt or offended you. (sic)’

During the interview on CBS, the Duchess admitted to having suicidal thoughts after joining the royal family.
She also accused an unnamed member of the royal family of asking about her son’s skin color prior to his birth.
The former Suits actress – who is biracial – claimed the royal family brought up the subject with her husband, Prince Harry, when she was pregnant with their first child, who is now 22 months old, and suggested the baby’s heritage was one of the reasons why the tot wasn’t given a title.

Prior to the interview broadcasting, Frankel hit out at Markle, suggesting she should’ve accepted the good and bad parts of being a royal before marrying Prince Harry in 2018.
Shortly after her ‘cry me a river’ post, she wrote on the micro-blogging platform: ‘I chose reality tv, to work towards making $, to be scrutinized & criticized.I took the trappings & the beatings along with it. It’s a rose w petals & thorns. People beg to enter the often toxic institution I signed up for. That WAS the life I chose. You can’t play stupid & smart (sic)’
