There's something about the Berkshires that seems to bring out the aggressiveness in the women of The Real Housewives of New York City. Shouldn't the serene landscape and cool breeze do the opposite? This time it was Bethenny Frankel and Heather Thomson. Carole Radziwill may have been referring to others, but she said it best at the start of this season of Real Housewives of New York City: It's the battle of the alpha dogs.

Happy Birthday, Dorinda Medley! Here's a bunch of a women yelling at each other.

While at Dorinda's "Knots Landing" dinner, Bethenny revealed she's allergic to certain kinds of fish, which made the sushi dinner a little difficult for her. But she didn't want to create a fuss, she'd find something to eat, after all she wasn't even supposed to be there, she showed up as a surprise. However, Heather kind of went into mommy mode and tried to handle Bethenny's dinner herself. This upset both the ladies.

"I can tell you what I want to f—king tell you," Heather said. "Honestly, I can. Don't tell me how to talk, don't tell me what to do."

Heather tried to explain her intentions, but Bethenny shot her down. "I'm not interested in this," she said. "OK, just like, get off me."

When the other ladies got involved, Bethenny resisted more. "I don't want attention, I just want to breathe. I just want to let it be light…If I get into it, I will be lying on this floor, sobbing. I don't want to get into anything," Bethenny said with tears in her eyes. "I just want the wall up…I just don't want to deal with anything."

Heather tried to take Bethenny out of the room to quash the drama, but Bethenny refused.

"Well, I just wanted to chill and laugh, and I felt that Heather was on my jock again," Bethenny wrote in her blog. "We definitely have different styles when getting to know each other." Last episode, Heather started asking Bethenny about her custody arrangements.

"Our talk about her custody of Bryn was a simple conversation to bring clarity to a topic she often discusses," Heather wrote after last week's episode. "I just didn't realize that only Bethenny can address it. I feel like there are a lot of unwritten rules with her. What you can ask, what you can say, how you can's a little tough to navigate."

"I'm not trying to f—k with you," Bethenny said at the end of this week's episode. And the episode? To be continued…
