Bethenny Frankel is sure that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have alienated their fans after their paparazzi incident in New York City earlier this week.
the former real housewives of new york city The star took to Instagram on Friday and claimed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, along with their mother, Doria Ragland, were involved in a “near-destructive car chase” with paparazzi following an awards ceremony. On August 31, 1997, Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, died in a paparazzi car accident in Paris, France. She was 36 years old.
“Some of you say to me, why do you talk about Meghan and Harry? I think, ‘They’re perfect. Why me?'” Frankel said to begin her video. “Then I start reading what people are saying and the news and you can’t believe it’s real. Why? Because they’re demanding that the photo agency return the footage? I swear this woman needs to move on.” housewives, just get on housewives,
While Meghan and Harry requested the footage, the photo agency involved in Backgrid denied the request in a furious letter.
Frankel continued, “Just be a housewife, bow down Get infamous because it’s not going that well. You alienated your fan base.”
The TV personality also said that she used to be Team Megan.
“I need you guys to know something — I was Team Meghan. That’s what you don’t get,” she said. “I was so excited. It was a woman from people getting married into royalty and I saw the wedding. And I was excited. I thought the dress was ill-fitting, but I was excited. … And then they left [the royal family] And I thought, ‘Oh my God.
After the couple left the royal family, they gave a “no topic off limits” interview to Oprah Winfrey in March 2021, in which Meghan and Harry made several allegations against the royal family. Prior to the interview, Frankel reprimanded the couple by saying, “Cry me a river.”
Fast forward to now, Frankel says the comment came “dangerously, razor-sharp close to cancellation” and also lost business deals as a result. She said the episode was “not fun” and that she was “repeated” and “devastated” for the comment. But she still felt compelled to make her offer on Harry and Meghan.
“The problem sometimes is when you get too far and you don’t know which way to go,” she said. “They’re swimming halfway between Cuba and Florida and they don’t know whether to go back or keep swimming, so they keep swimming and we hope they don’t drown.”
Frankel also brought up mega stars such as Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber and Harry Styles, saying that he had never heard them “talk like that”.
This isn’t the first time Frankel has linked Meghan to real housewives, Back in September, the entrepreneur compared Meghan to her ex housewives Starr who walked away and then “is always talking about the same thing you’re trying to extricate yourself from.”
“I want to disassociate myself from the royal family. I was treated very badly…” Frankel said in Markle’s voice. “I want my privacy, but I want my podcast. I want my privacy, but I want Netflix specials.”
Frankel’s advice to Meghan at the time was, “Let it go, Elsa. Move on, change the future and leave that family behind because it’s only causing more drama for your husband.” [Prince Harry],
