Are they or aren’t they friends? That’s what fans want to know as some eagle-eyed social media followers have noticed that Andy Cohen and Bethenny Frankel don’t follow each other on Instagam.
But that’s not because they are beefing or have issues between them. Instead, it’s because they would rather keep their social interactions in real life. Here’s what you need to know.
According to Bethenny Frankel’s rep, it’s nothing personal between her and Andy. Apparently, the two of them have never followed each other’s Instagram accounts but they do follow each other’s Twitter accounts and interact all the time.
The Beef Between Andy Cohen And Bethenny Frankel Explained
The rep told Page Six, “They haven’t followed each other in forever. They are super close friends. In fact he recently did her podcast. She doesn’t follow a lot of her friends. She prefers to connect with them directly and not see what they’re up to over social media.”
What’s more, the insider said that Andy doesn’t follow any current of former Housewife stars on Instagram but he does follow them al on Twitter.
Back in November, Andy made it pretty clear that he’s none too pleased that there are so many of the housewives often share spoilers about the show on social media before their seasons even air.
In the In My Heart With Heather Thompson podcast, Real Housewives of New York alum Heather Thompson asked him how Andy deals with the franchise when it comes to trying to maintain their traditional appeal.
He said that one of the biggest challenges producers have are trying to keep all of the major filming of events off of social media. Unfortunately, that hasn’t always happened, as there have been plenty of leaks about conflicts that actually need to be put on hold for several months.
He said, “It’s interesting, because one of the things that we’re facing … and I think it’s really been an issue I would assume on Keeping Up With The Kardashains… [they] know from social media and from paparazzi what the Kardashians are doing every day, you know?”
He added, “They’re just out there and it becomes something and I think with the Housewives sometimes they start broadcasting on social media or posting a lot of stuff from the trip and I’m the guy who’s like, ‘Ugh! Stop posting this! It’s gonna feel stale when it comes out in six months!’ The world is being live-streamed, essentially, and I think that is something of a challenge for certain shows.”
