Bethenny Frankel is used to getting her way.
That's why it was such a shock to us when the Real Housewife's eponymous talk show was canceled before it really even started.
But now that the former Bravolebrity is back on the network that made her famous in the first place, the 44-year-old mother of one is clearing the air on what she thinks led to the demise.
While promoting her new book I Suck At Relationships So You Don't Have To, Bethenny said she felt she was being held back as a host, saying:
How could anyone forget the feud between Bethenny Frankel and Kelly Bensimon?
While the two both co-starred on the Real Housewives of New York, there was PLENTY of drama between them. The most notable moment happened on the Crazy Island episode, when Kelly accused Bethenny of trying to kill her while she slept. You remember that, right?!
Yep, the Crazy Island ep and Kel's jelly beans will NEVER be forgotten.
So, when the reality stars reunited (thanks, Countess LuAnn!), we expected a lot of sparks…
…Find out what happened when the ladies crossed paths again (below)!
We guess Jason Hoppy didn't appreciate Bethenny Frankel throwing a bunch of shade this past week!
Hoppy's legal representative, Bernard Clair, essentially blasted the reality star, saying:
"The recent stories about what is supposedly going on in court, particularly about financial matters, are inaccurate and false, seemingly planted by misguided people who wrongly believe that they are furthering Ms. Frankel's newly minted effort to cast herself as a victim. Mr. Hoppy continues to work hard to protect his daughter from what appears to be her mother's inability or unwillingness to put a clamp on uninvited media attention."
The lawyer offered no follow-up, but it's clear from the statement that Jason did NOT appreciate his estranged wife's choice of words.
To be fair, Frankel later admitted she's far from homeless, a sentiment she reiterated to Andy Cohen on Tuesday:
"By being on the show, I open myself up to scrutiny. I said I was the wealthiest homeless person. It was a pun. I don't actually think I'm homeless. I donate a lot of money to Dress For Success and help a lot of women who would be homeless or who were homeless every year with the money that I make from Skinnygirl."
Despite the momma's clarifying comment, it's clear the pair are still battling it out!
Hopefully these two will one day be civil!!!

Bethenny Frankel's legal woes are far from over.
According to a report, Bethenny's ex, Jason Hoppy, wants an increase in child support for their four-year-old daughter, Bryn.
Obviously, Frankel does NOT want to pay Hoppy another cent more than the $10,000 a month she already pays him — and loathes the idea that she's basically his sole financial support.
An insider elaborated:
"It makes Bethenny absolutely crazy that she has to give Jason a dime. But since he's been unable to find a steady job since the divorce, Jason plans on going back to court to ask for more money. Not a huge increase, but New York City is very expensive!"
We can understand the reality star's frustrations! If Bryn is being properly cared for in both houses, then we're not sure why there needs to be an increase in child support!

What a strange twist of fate!
The 44-year-old recent divorcée hadn't been a part of the franchise for four years while she was off becoming one of the highest paid reality stars thanks to her Skinny Girl brand.
However, that all changed at the start of season seven… and it turns out that her co-stars were actually responsible for her return!
While being interviewed by Nick Lachey on his Big Morning Buzz Live talk show on VH1 on Thursday, Bethenny revealed that it was actually the cast and not Andy Cohen or the producers that urged her to get back to her celebreality roots.
We guess everyone involved with the show could tell they needed a breath of fresh air!
Ch-ch-check out an always-candid Bethenny spilling the truth (below)!!!
In the case of Bethenny Frankel and her ex Jason Hoppy, home is NOT where the heart is!
The Real Housewives of New York star and the businessman are currently going through a bitter divorce that has already lasted two years.
Well according to RadarOnline, this delay may be caused by the 44-year-old reality TV star not wanting to give her lavish Tribeca loft to her baby daddy!
As we reported, the Skinnygirl founder was devastated in the first episode of this season's RHONY because Hoppy was living in the apartment she worked her entire life to build.
A source reveals that officializing their split will definitely give the former personal trainer the apartment!
The insider said:
This is some real shizz!
The highlight of the second episode's fights happened at LuAnn de Lesseps' new house in the Hamptons where Bethenny and Ramona Singer got into a heated argument over brunch!
Srsly, the fight was about BRUNCH.
When Bethenny suggested that the whole crew should come over to her place for brunch, Ramona jumped in and quickly explained that everyone had already decided to come to her house for brunch.
Except as it turns out, no one
