Now this is amazing!

While taping a recent appearance on Bethenny Frankel's talk show, Andy Cohen surprised Frankel by bringing her Real Housewives of New York audition tape and playing it for everyone to see.

"Speaking of awkward moments, I brought something to surprise you with," Cohen says. "I love on my show [Watch What Happens Live] to open the vault and look into the past...This is Bethenny's audition tape for The Real Housewives of New York."

The 42-year-old's audition tape shows her explaining all about her "natural food chef" business. "I cook for celebrities mostly. I cook for Denis Leary on the set of Rescue Me, I've cooked for Mariska Hargitay, the Hiltons, Brooke Hogan, Alicia Silverstone, models."

Frankel's reaction to watching the tape is priceless! She's seen cringing and covering her face with her hands in embarrassment. "That was painful," she says after the tape ends. "That's why I made it on the show?"

In another clip from her audition tape, Frankel gushes about her Real Housewives costar and former BFF Jill Zarin, whom she no longer speaks to. "I met Jill through a mutual friend at a dinner, and I've run into her at a bunch of different social events, and she's just a nutjob, I can just tell," Frankel says. "So, I like her. I mean, she walks up to me, and she says to me at a party, 'Skinny bitch.' And I'm like, 'OK, first of all, you used the word skinny and you're referring to me. We can be friends. If bitch is attached to it, I can live with that.'"

Watch the hilarious clip for yourself!
