‘The Real Housewives of New York’ spoilers tells that when it comes to the world of reality television shows, you’ve either got privilege, or you don’t. At least, that’s what Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel believes, as she recently poked fun at Kim Kardashian for throwing her 40th birthday bash on a private island with her family and friends, despite the fact that the world is dealing with a pandemic right now.
And while there were a lot of people who agreed with Bethenny, there were others who pointed out that she is the kind of person who has privilege and is certainly not afraid to use it. Here’s what you need to know.
‘The Real Housewives of New York’ Spoilers: Bethenny Frankel Claps Back At Her Hates Over Privilege
Bethenny shared an Instagram post in which she and her daughter Bryn are apparently “mocking” Kim Kardashian by sitting on their own private island, which was located in the middle of their kitchen. In the caption, Bethenny included the hashtags “privileged,” and “This is 50,” which was an apparent dig at Kim’s own “This is 40” hashtag.
Of course, it didn’t take very long for Bethenny’s fans and critics alike to weigh in on the matter. When someone wrote, “Not sure if this is even any better. Some could so you are privileged too. Sitting on your marble island in your fancy kitchen. Be careful when trying to shame others,” Bethenny clapped back with, “Should I smash the marble? Give me the script… how would you do it? No flamingo?”
Others said, “I’m not a Kardashian hater like most, but bragging about your $1M birthday during a pandemic when half the country is unemployed is tone deaf,” along with, “I have to agree with Bethenny when it comes to the Kartrashians, at least Bethenny is trying to help people in crisis, what do the Kartrashians do except throw themselves extravagant parties. There’s a reason they are called Kartrashians.”
