Bethenny Frankel is back to blasting Andy Cohen.

The “Real Housewives of New York City” alum slammed the “Watch What Happens Live” host via Instagram for his comments about Gina Kirschenheiter’s home last week.

Frankel, 52, re-posted a clip on her Story on Wednesday of Cohen, 55, asking guest Heather Dubrow — via a “shady” cartoon whale — “which of [her] fellow ‘Housewives’ would get the least amount of money if they sold their home.”

Although she called that too “mean” to answer, Cohen said, “I think it’s probably Gina. She has a casita, right?”

Frankel wrote that “50+ people sent” the footage to her, asking, “Is this why housewives steal & go bankrupt to look rich? or get made fun of for owning your home.”

The Skinnygirl creator’s social media upload also included a rant about Cohen from the original post.

“This would be exactly what @bethennyfrankel is talking about,” Instagram user Kendoll King wrote. “He pits guests on the show in positions to answer questions that reinforce his own opinions.

“I feel like the tides are turning against Andy,” the viewer continued, calling Cohen’s interview style “10-15 years” old and predicting a “burgeoning cancellation.”

King concluded, “He’s made a lot of enemies and it just sort of feels like people are speaking out against him more and more. … Has Andy passed his prime? Maybe he just needs to be on pause.”

Cohen’s rep has not responded to Page Six’s request for comment.

When “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Kirschenheiter, 39, clapped back at the Bravo bigwig in an Instagram video Wednesday, calling his comments about her home “unkind” since she owns it “without a husband,” he issued an apology on his SiriusXM show later that same day.

“She’s absolutely right,” Cohen admitted “Radio Andy,” adding, “I’m sorry. There you go. I saw that, I texted her, but I wanted to say it [here], too.”

The talk show host, however, has yet to address Frankel’s previous statements about him on her “Just B” podcast, in which she called him “gross” for allegedly treating “Real Housewives” like “pieces of meat” on his late-night show.

“[He’ll ask stuff like], ‘Who’s the worst mother?’” Frankel told listeners last week. “Questions that are so problematic.”


Can’t get enough ‘Real Housewives?’


On Monday’s episode of her “ReWives” podcast, she recalled feeling “ambushed” on “WWHL” in December 2022, saying Cohen “came for her.”

Frankel alleged that her 13-year-old daughter, Bryn, was backstage at the time felt her mom was the victim of a “firing squad.”

She claimed, “Andy Cohen has built a fortune and bought beach houses on the backs of like 180 women.”

Frankel, who starred on various Bravo shows from 2008 to 2018, recently blasted the network as part of her “reality reckoning” — but clarified over the weekend that she is not suing them in her fight for “systemic change.”
