Bethenny Frankel isn't going to rain on Luann de Lesseps' paradenot blatantly, at least.

On Andy Cohen's Sirius XM show Radio Andy Monday, the Real Housewives of New York star said she's "actually" happy about the countess' engagement to Thomas D'Agostino Jr.

"I got the 411," Bethenny began. "She got engaged Saturday night. There is a ring. I think it's a yellow diamond and it's decently large, and she called Page Six right after so, it's a normal engagement! Isn't that what everybody does?"

If you sensed a little snark there, you're not the only one. But Bethenny didn't intend for that to be a backhanded compliment.

"I'm actually, I'm happy though," she said. "Like, if she's happy... I had a good feeling, I don't know about him or them or whatever..."

When Andy asked Bethenny if she knew Thomas, the Skinnygirl entrepreneur replied, "No, but Ramona [Singer] dated him, and Sonja [Morgan] used to be his 'friends with benefits,' so they kind of gave a little intel recently, but, um..."

Andy asked laughingly, "What are the chances," to which Bethenny replied, "On Housewives, very high. He's the new Harry Dubin. Harry Dubin for those anybody who hasn't watched the Housewives is the other man who banged every Housewife except for like Porsha [Williams], I think."

That's not Bethenny throwing shade though! "No, but what's funny is, you know how I can't hide my feelings about things or [my] opinions, and I feel happy," she told Andy. "I feel excited for [LuAnn]. She's having a moment. It's exciting. She wasn't that happy this summer, and I feel like who knows, I suck at relationships. I'm not one to talk about anyone's relationship. I'm in the 12 year divorce."
