BUZZ: Bethenny Frankel responds to ‘And Just Like That’ shade: ‘Catty housewives are still talking about’ me

Bethenny Frankel is clapping back after she became the butt of the joke in the Season 2 premiere of “And Just Like That.”

During the season premiere which aired Thursday, Carrie Bradshaw — played by Sarah Jessica Parker — told her realtor, Seema Patel, that she “almost bought a house in the Hamptons six times but always found a reason not to.”

Patel, played by actress Sarita Choudhury, quickly quipped, “Was that reason always Bethenny Frankel?”

After the joke made its way back to the “Real Housewives of New York City” alum, she posted a video to Instagram acknowledging the shade.

“When you’re off TV for years … AND JUST LIKE THAT … catty housewives are still talking about you,” Frankel, 52, wrote over a video of her sipping her new Rosé brand while the “AJLT” scene in question played out above her head.

Continuing her response in the caption, Frankel wrote, “CURRENTLY sipping my new Forever Young rosè wine from my house in the Hamptons paid for by my last spirits venture. Cheers ladies….”

Instagram users applauded Frankel, including one user who wrote, “Your makeup and dollar store videos are more entertaining than the SATC Reboot 😏💅🏻 just sayin.”

“AND JUST LIKE THAT I’ll never watch that again. Bethenny Stan forever,” another user said, while a third quipped, “I almost watched and just like that six times but always found a reason against it… that reason was it looked awful.”

The former “Real Housewives of New York City” alum has gushed over her Long Island digs numerous times.

Following her stint in “RHONY,” the “Just B with Bethenny Frankel“ podcast host relocated to the Hamptons in March 2022 to raise her 13-year-old daughter Bryn, whom she shares with ex-husband Jason Hoppy.

The Skinnygirl mogul — who is now engaged to Paul Bernon — splits her time between the ritzy Long Island home and Connecticut.

Can’t get enough ‘Real Housewives?’

On June 6, Frankel gave TikTok users a mini tour of her $6.2 million Bridgehampton mansion.

The Bravolebrity posted a video of her backyard, fitted with a swimming pool, hot tub and a full bar.

According to Entertainment Tonight, the house also features five bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.

“I’m just happy here. I’m more suburban than city. I think New York is where I work and here is where I really live,” Frankel told ET in 2016.

New “And Just Like That” episodes come out every Thursday on Max.
