Bethenny Frankel claims she doesn’t even know Sunny Hostin.
The 48-year-old is responding to claims by The View host that she once yelled at Hostin’s son during a beach vacation.
The SkinnyGirl mogul was a guest on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Thursday and the host queried her about the allegations.
No knowledge: Bethenny Frankel insisted that she didn’t remember an incident in which The View co-host Sunny Hostin claimed she yelled at her son in The Hamptons during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Thursday
A fan wrote into the late night show with a question about the beef between the stars but Frankel’s guess was as good as theirs.
When Andy asked her what was going on, the mother of one was at a total loss.
‘I don’t know,’ she told Cohen. ‘I think she’s been drinking or taking some drugs. I don’t know her!’
She continued, flabbergast: ‘I don’t know. I don’t know her.’
‘I don’t know,’ Bethenny told Cohen about Sunny’s claims. ‘I think she’s been drinking or taking some drugs. I don’t know her!’
Earlier this week Hostin told a story on The View about an incident where she accused Frankel of aggressively yelling at her son for being too loud during a trip in The Hamptons.
‘You don’t remember that?’ Andy asked.
Bethenny replied simply: ‘No, I don’t.’
A recent temper tantrum of Bethenny’s on the Real Housewives of New York is what prompted Sunny to tell her story on her daytime talk show.
Frankel verbally berated Luann for being ‘insufferable’ and consumed in her cabaret life post-rehab on the reality show.

While the ladies of The View discussed the plot line, Sunny chimed in with her alleged personal tale.
‘I’ve seen that kind of behavior when Bethenny yelled at my child on the beach.’
While Meghan McCain believed Bethenny was suffering from a ‘grief panic attack,’ Sunny wasn’t so sure that was the case.
Producers tried to stop Hostin from telling the tale and she quipped: ‘They’re telling me not to talk about it in my ear.’
Whoopi Goldberg encouraged Sunny to continue her story, and she recalled a weekend in The Hamptons where her family rented a house next to Frankel.

‘It was on the middle of the day and my child was about seven playing with other children at about two in the afternoon,’ Hostin quickly recalled. ‘She said that her child was napping inside with the window open and that our children were being too loud on the beach.
‘She yelled at my child and I went out there and stood in front of my child and I yelled at her and told her adults speak to adults,’ Hostin added. ‘And she knows I’m telling the truth.’
Sunny shared that Frankel’s now ex-husband, Jason Hoppy, apologized for the incident and she later received a slew of SkinnyGirl products.

While Frankel claims ignorance about the ordeal with Sunny, she did address her hot headed screaming match with Luann.
‘It was an explosion and a reaction to many things, obviously,’ Frankel admitted. ‘No one acts like that in any restaurant, no matter what’s happened…But there was something in her that just really triggered me.’
‘I mean, you’ve seen it before with her, with me, there’s something that happens where I’m saying, ”Why are you saying you invented the Skinnygirl Margarita?”,’ Frankel said.
‘I just—I had had it.’
Fed up: The 48-year-old reality star had finally gotten fed up with the ‘insufferable’ Luann de Lessep and her self-absorption
Frankel explained that she had also spent three days assisting de Lesseps, 54, in finding rehab and legal help when she was arrested ahead of the last Housewives reunion show.
She’d gotten two lawyers to visit de Lesseps on a Sunday, and her ex-boyfriend Dennis Shields [who died last year at 51] was ‘thinking of bailing her out of her $6 million situation.’
‘I went all in, I got her rehab paid for,’ Frankel said. ‘So I just felt like, ”What the hell are you doing? Like, who are you? How are you so not self-aware?”’
It didn’t seem to make a difference, she added.
