‘She’s a moron and a liar!’: Bethenny Frankel’s mother slams the star even though she’s built a $100m Skinnygirl empire and was a hit on RHONY

  • The reality star and her mother have been feuding on and off for 16 years
  • In July 2016 it seemed as if they had called a ‘truce,’ according to Bethenny
  • But this week her mother Bernadette told a publication her daughter is a ‘liar’ 
  • The woman went on to say that her daughter’s success is due to ‘luck’ 

Bethenny Frankel has never had a good relationship with her mother – they have been feuding off and on for 16 years.  And it looks as if their icy relationship will get even chillier.

On Wednesday Bernadette Birk told Life & Style Weekly the beauty – who has starred on The Real Housewives Of New York City and made $100m from her Skinnygirl empire – is a ‘moron.’

That same day the TV star was seen on the Hollywood set of TV’s Extra in a high-slit white skirt looking as if she didn’t have a care in the world, however.

Still looking good: Bethenny Frankel seemed to have not a care in the world on Wednesday in Hollywood, the same day  Life & Style published negative comment from her mother

And she thinks the raven-haired Bravo star is only ‘lucky’ to have landed a guest judge role on Season Nine of Shark Tank.

‘She is a moron,’ Bernadette said moments after the news broke that her daughter would be on the ABC show.

‘She got very lucky, and she just knows how to surround herself with people who are intelligent.’

Her empire: Skinnygirl has a line of hard alcohol, wine and candy; she has also written several books

And the woman did not stop there.

‘Bethenny is a liar and a shark. She ran through my guts. She will get along with the other sharks,’ said the mom.

The New York native launched her Skinny Girl empire while starring on the Bravo reality series and the company has made her a multimillionaire.

Smiling away: The beauty has not talked to her mother in nearly a year

&amp;amp;lt;img id=”i-92bc1f0cae6fb5c1″ src=”http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2017/05/24/19/40C0808000000578-4538052-image-a-72_1495650587161.jpg&#8221; height=”841″ width=”634″ alt=”Smiling away: The beauty has not talked to her mother in nearly a year” class=”blkBorder img-share”/&amp;amp;gt;

Smiling away: The beauty has not talked to her mother in nearly a year

Frankel and her mother have not spoken in nearly a year. But the issues go back nearly two decades.

Their relationship became very nasty in 2011 when Bethenny complained about her childhood in the book A Place of Yes: 10 Rules For Getting Everything You Want Out Of Life. She relayed gritty details about how she never felt ‘safe’ and painted a picture of neglect as her mother drank excessively, she claimed.

A war in the media followed with bitter barbs traded on both sides.

But it seemed as if the Bravo star – who is divorced from Jason Hoppy – was getting along better with the woman in July 2016.

That is when she took to her Sirius XM radio show, B Real with Bethenny, to explain their truce.

‘My daughter said, “Mommy, are your parents alive?” I said, “My daddy’s not alive and my mommy is alive.” She said, “I want to meet your mommy.”‘

That made the TV star want to call her mother.

‘I thought, “Oh God, I’ve got to reach out to her,”‘ said the TV icon

When she did, she got a nice reception, which surprised her.

‘I think that she—and maybe my stepfather—have been hurt because some of the truths of my childhood have been in some of my books as it pertains to how I got here success-wise and how I got here sucking at relationships-wise,’ Frankel said.

‘So, I said to her, “This is my truth, and I’ve only told about 10 percent of my truth. And your life is your truth and what got you here.

‘And the mistakes that you made—you had me at 20—I’m not angry. I’m just telling you that my daughter has asked for you. She’s 6 years old.”‘

She added: ‘It was actually not an excruciating conversation.’

Frankel is the only child of Robert Frankel, who was a horse trainer, and Bernadette, who worked as an interior designer.

At age four, her father left her mother and a year later Bernadette wed John Parisella. The star has said that during this time her mother ‘was always drinking’ and argued ‘violently’ with her stepfather.

Frankel went on to graduate from the Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale in 1988. After cooking school in NYC, she traveled to Los Angeles where she got her first break as an assistant on the TV series Saved By The Bell with Mario Lopez in the 1990s. She rose to fame by starring on The Real Housewives Of New York City.

Thankfully, Bethenny’s the bigger person, wanting her daughter to meet her mother, knowing it may have not gone well. She’s done well for herself, considering. Mom acts like an alcoholic, pointing fingers at everything around her but herself.

I don’t know anything about these women but there’s nothing as classless as families who feud publicly. Keep that stuff private. Even if she’s telling the truth, she’s still wrong. I have no respect for a mother who trashes her child in an interview. I don’t care who said what or who started it, keep it out of the press.

The statement says more about the mother than Bethenny.
