Ariana Madix believes Bethenny Frankel “should have known better” than to interview Raquel Leviss.
The Something About Her co-creator blasted Frankel’s three-part podcast on “Scheananigans With Scheana Shay” Friday.
“Bethenny actually upset me more in the things that were said,” Madix, 38, told listeners, clarifying that she “did not listen but did read synopses.”
She accused Frankel, 52, of not “know[ing] what the f–k” she was talking about when sharing her opinions on Leviss’ affair with Tom Sandoval while he was dating Madix.
Scheana Shay chimed in, claiming that Frankel needed to do “more research.”
Madix then specifically addressed “very hurtful” comments Frankel made about the cheating scandal meaning less because Madix and Sandoval had not tied the knot or welcomed children during their nine-year relationship.
“In many states, [he was my common law spouse],” Madix said. “I find that hurtful in regards to other women in relationships who don’t have children. Maybe they can’t have children or don’t want children or don’t want to get married.
“None of those people’s relationships are less meaningful because of that,” the reality star continued. “She should know better than to say that about anybody.”

The Bravolebrity also clapped back at Frankel and Leviss’ shade over her and Sandoval, 41, still both living in their Los Angeles home.
“I keep my door locked,” Madix said.
She elaborated on this in an Instagram comment earlier this week, writing that she was working with her “lawyer and financial advisors to navigate the best path forward.”
Madix added that she wants to avoid “uprooting [her] dog and elderly cat and causing more trauma.”
Frankel has defended her interview with Leviss amid widespread backlash from Stassi Schroeder, Lala Kent and more stars.
“We’re both really happy [with the episodes],” the former Real Housewife said in a Thursday TikTok. “I thank you for all the love and the hate too because it’s been so successful.”
She concluded, “We did exactly what we wanted to do.”
