Bethenny On What 'Newer' Housewives Don't Understand

The #RHONY star dishes on what it's been like to return to the show.

After a lengthy hiatus away from #RHONY, Bethenny Frankel returned to the series this season. And upon her re-emergence in the crew, the Real Housewives of New York star found herself in the middle of some new kind of drama.

"That's the difference between old-school Housewives and newer Housewives. Newer Housewives sometimes think that we're creating something," she says on Access Hollywood. "And we're not on Days of Our Lives. This is called the Real Housewives. This is me living and there's a camera capturing that. This is not 'We're best friends because were doing a play together.' And the newer girls don't understand that as well as the older girls."

Bethenny's return hasn't been met without some fireworks from the rest of the crew, both new and old. "I'm new in the pack again and people don't know how to deal with me," she says. "And [they] want to either kind of be with me or work it out with me or talk to me, or fight with me or do something with me. I really felt like I was the don, working out issues. Like I had people come and air their grievances with me. So I was putting out fires one at a time."
