Bethenny Frankel tried ‘to make Ariana Madix look bad’

Stassi Schroeder called out Bethenny Frankel for allegedly victim-shaming Ariana Madix during her sit-down interview with Raquel Leviss.

“It was almost like Bethenny was trying to make Ariana look bad,” the former “Vanderpump Rules” star said during Wednesday’s episode of her podcast, “Straight Up With Stassi.”

“It’s, like, that’s not the route we should be taking right now. Ariana hasn’t done anything wrong.”

The Bravo alum also questioned why Frankel emphasized the fact that Madix and ex Tom Sandoval are still living together after his bombshell affair with Leviss.

“She’s not living with Sandoval because she’s forgiven him,” Schroeder, 35, said.

“She’s living with Sandoval because she’s like, ‘This is my house too and I refuse to leave my own home,’ and Sandoval is being a gaslighting prick motherf–ker who is refusing to leave.”

Schroeder further slammed the “Real Housewives of New York” alum, 52, for not keeping up with the “Pump Rules” drama before interviewing the former beauty pageant queen, 28.

“What I don’t understand is how she didn’t — when she found out she was gonna interview [Raquel] — go and binge-watch Seasons 1 through f–king 10, so that she knew everything,” she said.

“It was lazy. It was a lazy f–king interview. Just hearing her talk the way Bethenny talked about Ariana and Sandoval living together, that was a lazy interview. She did not do her research. She does not understand anything.”

“Sandoval is being a gaslighting prick motherf–ker who is refusing to leave,” Schroeder said.

Madix, 38, and Sandoval, 40, were together for nearly a decade before news of his affair with Leviss broke in March. They purchased their $2 million home in Valley Village, Calif., back in 2019.

Since their split, the two have been keeping their distance from each other and “do not interact on any level,” Madix revealed in May on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”

After months of silence, Leviss appeared on the Skinnygirl founder’s “Just B” podcast last week to discuss her months-long fling with Sandoval and the fallout from their dalliance.

Leviss addressed the Scandoval aftermath last week on Frankel’s “Just B” podcast.

Leviss accused the musician of recording a sexual video of her on FaceTime without consent.

She also claimed she hasn’t “seen a penny” from Scandoval, while the TomTom co-owner was offered a producer credit for the new season.

But Bravo denied that claim, telling Page Six that Sandoval “was never offered a producer credit on Season 11 and had absolutely no creative control over any editing during any season of ‘Vanderpump Rules.’”

Page Six confirmed she will not return to “Vanderpump Rules” for Season 11.

Page Six confirmed last week that Leviss would not be returning for Season 11.

The former reality star, who checked herself into a mental facility after the explosive Season 10 reunion, “knew going back to the show would open her up to trauma she’s been working on healing,” a source told “Entertainment Tonight.”

Leviss recently revamped her social media by removing photos of herself with her “VPR” co-stars and changing her bio to read, “Becoming a better person… one day at a time.”
