Bethenny Frankel is no stranger to reality TV, but even though she has experience dealing with annoying housewives, she’s got a new co-star that’s causing problems.
Bethenny, who is famously known for starring on The Real Housewives of New York, has partnered with friend and real estate legend Fredrik Eklund in their new show Bethenny & Fredrik. The Bravo show features the two flipping homes in New York City, but not just any homes, apartments, penthouses. These two touch only places that live up to their standards and New York City lifestyle.
The two sat with Us Weekly earlier this month to talk about how different they are, and the problems they’ve encountered with working alongside each other. When asked about one another and their work habits, Bethenny feels Fredrik overspends, while Fredrik finds Bethenny “very annoying.”
Although the powerful duo has a great working relationship, it goes without saying they can get on each other’s nerves at times. Bethenny, who tells it like it is, doesn’t go soft on Fredrik and the truthful delivery is actually “hurtful and annoying,” says co-star Fredrik.
Although being called annoying may come across as harsh, Bethenny didn’t disagree with the statement. She went on by saying, “I’m a perfectionist, attention to detail that no one could live up to…We have different philosophies and different way of doing business,” said the Skinny Girl creator.
While filming the series, Bethenny divulged that the two had some “heated disagreements” during the process, and luckily for us, it’s all on camera. Fredrik, who can only handle so much of Bethenny at once, stated how “she’s talking to me like I work for her.” Seems as if Bethenny doesn’t play around!
The two were seen arguing in the last episode, as Bethenny accused Fredrik of “under-delivering” listings. As much as the two argue, it will never be reason enough for them to end their budding friendship. You can catch Bravo’s Bethenny & Fredrik Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET.
