Real Housewives worlds collide this year thanks to Bethenny Frankel and she's pretty happy about it. E! News caught up with The Real Housewives of New York City star at the Breast Cancer Research Foundation's annual awards luncheon where she dished about her big Real Housewives of Beverly Hills appearance.
"I've known Kyle [Richards] for years. I used to work for Kathy Hilton and take Paris and Nicky to school and so I knew them through Kyle who's a friend of mine and she was coming into town so I got together with her in the Hamptons," Bethenny told E! News exclusively. "All very natural, but you know she happens to be on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and I got to meet all her friends."
E! News reported Bethenny hosted a dinner for Kyle and her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costars and "Bethenny was Bethenny," a source said. "She was very direct with everyone. She wasn't afraid to speak her mind."
"I really enjoyed shooting with the Beverly Hills cast. I feel like I was really part of their cast for a small minute. I had some preconceived notions and I really liked talking to them and I thought it was amusing. I met someone new that I hadn't met before and I had a great time," Bethenny told us. "I really did, and I thought it was funny and I think there was a little drama and of course I was right in the middle of it, but I'm never afraid to say what I think about something. I might have put my foot in my mouth but you know it was funny, it was good."
As for Real Housewives of New York season 8, nothing has been officially confirmed yet (except that Heather Thomson and Kristen Taekman aren't returning), but Bethenny did let it slip that she's been filming in the Big Apple.
