After Show: Ramona on Why Bethenny is a Difficult Friend

We've sensed that perhaps Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill aren't as close as they used to be this season of The Real Housewives of New York City. And if you caught the sneak peek for next Wednesday's episode at 9/8c, you saw that the tension between the onetime besties may finally boil over. It looks like Carole is going to use Bethenny's own iconic catchphrase "get off my jock" against her, so you know there's lots of drama to come.

Though both Bethenny and Carole have discussed what's going on with their friendship on RHONY and in the press, we still don't really know how things could have fallen apart so much between the two of them. Ramona Singer weighed in on the fallout from what she's observed with the former BFFs during the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen After Show on Wednesday. She explained why Bethenny can be "a very difficult person" and revealed a past conversation with Carole about their friendship dynamic that gave her pause. Press play on the above video to get Ramona's full take on the situation.

Carole previously explained the changes in her relationship with Bethenny during an interview with E! News in April. "I'm an idealistic kind of person. I look at the world that way, I look at people that way, and I think I looked at her that way," she said. "And I feel like now I see her a little bit more realistically and less idealistically. There were just some things that were said and done that I just felt like weren't completely consistent with the girl I knew." 

Bethenny confirmed that "there was a shift" in her friendship with Carole and teased that "it gets more intense" as the season goes on when she appeared on WWHL on May 2. Watch Bethenny open up more about where things stand with Carole this season of RHONY, below.
