The final moments of The Real Housewives of New York City season eight's penultimate episode were as nail-bitingly tense as any we've ever seen (and the season finale looks like it'll pick up with much of the same intensity), with Bethenny Frankel attempting to divulge her damning information about Luann de Lesseps' fiance Tom D'Agostino's illicit Regency Hotel rendezvous to the Countess herself—and the Countess so horrified about the truth bomb about to drop in her lap that she bolted out of B's hotel room. Viewers were left with a frustrating "To be continued" taunt, while Bethenny was left with her face in her hands.
But was she taken aback by Luann's unwillingness (at first, at least) to hear what she had to say?
"Given the week she had had and given what was said at the party and where she is in her life, I was not surprised that she walked out. I wasn't surprised," the margarita mogul told E! News ahead of the big finale while promoting her new Skinnygirl Watermelon Lime Margarita. "I can't explain my feelings about it. Part of me felt confused and part of me felt bad. I had a multitude of emotions. Luann and I have had a very tumultuous relationship and it's had its ups and downs. Definitely, it's a circus of emotions."
Luann is hardly the only person who Bethenny's sparred with in season eight, her second back after a three-season break. B also took on Dorinda Medley's BF John Mahdessian (and Dorinda, by extension) back at the beginning of the season and Sonja Morgan towards the middle, keeping her firmly in the thick of the drama all season long. And if you think she's feeling badly about her many squabbles—think again. "I don't believe in regrets on the show. This is how I acted in these moments," she admitted. "What I will say is I was in a lot of arguments this season and each and every one of them was someone coming for my business."
"You come for me, you're gonna get the wrath," she added. "And that's what happened this season."
