Bethenny Says Luann Is “the Most Resilient, Strong Woman I’ve Ever Met”


Bethenny Frankel and Luann de Lesseps have gone head-to-head in the past, but it sounds like they’re officially putting the past behind them.

Following Luann’s arrest late last year, the Skinnygirl creator has nothing but positive things to say about her former frenemy.

We know, we can’t really believe it either!

On last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, the mother of one dished on the Countess and how she’s doing since the arrest.

“Luann’s great,” the 47-year-old confessed on Tuesday, February 6.

“Luann is actually the most resilient, strong woman I’ve ever met, maybe.”

Though Luann was at a bad place during the time of her arrest, she is learning from the mistake and working on herself.

“She hit the wall going 90, and the way you handle something when something bad happens is really character building and shows a lot about a person,” Bethenny shared.

“She’s taking care of herself, she’s taking it seriously. She’s not delusional about where she is.”

She continued, “She’s sort of on a path and she’s in a good place.”

In fact, the 52-year-old is being as open and honest as she can about her state of mind.

“I mean, she’s very honest about exactly where she is, about what happened, and about what her goals are. I’m honestly impressed,” Bethenny said.

For those who don’t remember, the mother of two was arrested on Christmas Eve in Palm Beach, Florida.

She was charged with disordering intoxication, battery on an officer, resisting arrest, and threatening a public servant.

Luann, who had gotten married to ex-husband Tom D’Agostino in Palm Beach the year before, released a statement following the incident.

“This was my first time in Palm Beach since my wedding, and being here brought up long-buried emotions,” she confessed.  

“I want to offer my sincere apologies to anyone I might have offended with my behavior. I am committed to a transformative and hopeful 2018.”
