Bethenny Frankel threw a drink at women blocking her view at Coldplay concert

Page Six has an appalling story about 45 year-old reality star Bethenny Frankel’s behavior at an exclusive Coldplay concert in the Hamptons. Coldplay was performing a VIP concert on Sunday at an extremely small venue in the Hamptons called The Stephen Talkhouse. Guests included Beyonce and Jay-Z, Sarah “not a feminist” Jessica Parker, Gwyneth Paltrow, Harvey Weinstein, John McEnroe, Jimmy Buffet and more. The place only fits 125 people and was packed with celebrities, including some Hampton fixtures like Christie Brinkley, who called it the best show she’s ever seen at the venue. Some reality stars were there too, like Kelly Bensimon and Bethenny Frankel of The Real Housewives of New York. Since we typically only talk about Bethenny when she’s acting like an a-hole, here’s another story. Apparently Bethenny’s view to the stage was being blocked and she took offense at this, because if anyone deserves a close view of Coldplay at a small concert filled with celebrities it’s Bethenny Frankel. You’ll never believe what she did next. (Yes you will it’s in the title):

Witnesses said Frankel flew into a rage when a trio of women were in her way. “Bethenny was annoyed that the women were standing [in her way] and was really nasty, asking them to move,” said a source. “She got so annoyed, she ordered [a drink and] then threw [it] at the women . . . They were speechless.”

But a source close to Bethenny told us: “There were three women who were standing and blocking the view after being told multiple times by security to sit down, people were frustrated. It was a crush . . . and very hot. People were jockeying for a view. It looked like this woman, who vehemently refused to move, needed some cooling off . . . so Bethenny tossed some water on her.”

Although not Frankel’s intended target, one bystander who we hear was rudely doused was influential Hamptons fixture Lisa Pevaroff-Cohn, the wife of Goldman Sachs investment-banking boss Gary Cohn. A source said, “There was no VIP area in the tiny venue, and the A-listers were in a crush with a dozen or so SiriusXM subscribers who won tickets to be there.”

Ok so not only did Bethenny do this, she issued a rude “source” quote acting like it was justified and she was doing the people a favor! She’s outrageous. I hope now that this news is out that she doesn’t get into these exclusive shows anymore. She’s so entitled she’ll throw drinks on people who refuse to do her bidding at a show with bonafide celebrities. Also, doesn’t this story made it sound like the group Bethenny doused were the Sirius ticket winners? Like she thought she should get their closer view because she was a “celebrity.” They should have thrown her out of there after that.

Bethenny has issued a half denial on Twitter but it’s not like she said “I didn’t do that.”

Bethenny out with her boyfriend, Dennis Shields, in June. He is separated from one of Bethenny’s best friends.

    She has always struck me as the most horrible, self-centered person. No information published about her has ever countered that opinion.

    • Cran says:

      As far as I have read there are no other opinions about her.

      • Shaunna says:

        She is a miserable, entitled, egotistical wanna be. What is going on with her legs in the navy skirt and jean jacket? Then the huge bumps or knots on her legs are gone in the other pics?

  2. Neelyo says:

    She’s just vile.

    I was so disappointed to see that someone I adore from childhood is a big fan of hers.

  3. Oya says:

    Aw, she was just helping out security who couldn’t really do their job. Bless.

    • Aussie girl says:

      Yes bless her. Someone had to stand up to those riff raff free ticket winners. Those poor exceedingly wealthy people all 125 of them. They never get the chance to do anything exciting like parties, great theater tickets or trips. But not on Bethenny’s watch, she is fighting all the important injustices of the world one drink at a time. I will sleep better tonight knowing this….

      • MC2 says:

        That was my take too. It sucks that these people got a once in a life time event ruined (for them but certainly not for the other celebrities).

  4. chaine says:

    What a loathsome woman.

  5. ashley says:

    I really hope she doused one of the big shots out in the Hamptons and this affects her social life. She needs to go away. PS. Those gladiator sandals look horrible on her.

  6. pikawho? says:

    Offending someone with close ties to Goldman-Sachs is basically like offending a Lannister. She better watch her back! Not that she wouldn’t deserve whatever rich people revenge they got on her..

    And it must be weird for Chris Martin and Harvey Weinstein to be in the same room, considering who they’ve both allegedly “shared”. (Don’t delete my comment, mods! I said allegedly and everything!)

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Chris and Harvey have more than one in common, allegedly of course.

      • pikawho? says:

        I had completely forgotten about their earlier shared history. Though that “arrangement” apparently only involved photos and nothing physical, as she was a bit more well connected when she started out, allegedly.

      • Lynnie says:

        Yuck, I just read a couple stories on Weinstein. Maaaaajor creep

      • pikawho? says:

        @Lynnie it really amazes me how a lot of people don’t know his “reputation” or accuse others of misogyny when they point out his connections to certain actresses. He has had the same MO since the late 80s. The tumblr generation seems especially ignorant about him even though he’s exactly the kind of creep they could all have “hate parties” over but I guess it would bring up too many questions about their faves… I wish the word would spread more.

      • Lynnie says:

        I am a part of the tumblr generation lol. I think he evades notice among my peers, because A.) he’s under the radar and connected enough to avoid punishment, B.) no one, my age at least, cares about his “it girls” with the exception of JLaw, C.) you’re right it would bring up a lot of uncomfortable questions, and D.) a lot of people are clueless about the inner workings of PR/take celebs at face value. Which is such a shame, Idk how his wife can look at him. I hope he experiences a Cosby sometime soon

  7. HappyMom says:

    Decorum and class as usual.

  8. AnnaKist says:

    I’ve never seen her show, as I think it’s only on pay-tv here, and I detest “reality” tv, so only know what I’ve read about her, mainly on this site. She sounds utterly obnoxious. It’s really depressing to realise how many adults carry on in such a juvenile manner.

    • Oya says:

      In the first season she stood out as a RH who had a smart, sardonic sense of humor and who actually worked for a living, so she was a little refreshing. But The underlying entitlement just got ickier the more one saw of her. ( I only watched 2 seasons, so cant say more).

      • Shaunna says:

        Bethenny is so much worse now it has ruined RHONY. She has single handily killed what used to be fun dynamics amongst the others.

    • Chantal says:

      And dress in such a juvenile manner. Old hag looks terrible.

  9. Thisisnotyou says:

    She should be thanking her lucky stars that it wasn’t me she threw that drink at. I seriously would’ve beat the ever living poop out of her bony a$$ ratchet face. What a dumpster fire that woman is.

  10. Erinn says:

    Ultimately… I can’t imagine cramming into such a tight area to see COLDPLAY of all people. I just couldn’t be bothered.

    Other than that – this woman is disgusting, as usual. She’s so self-involved, and always expects people to bend to her will. Oh the woman didn’t listen to security, and was blocking your view? Welcome to the real world – where us peasants tend to have trouble getting optimal views at…well, nearly all concerts.

    • Lirko says:

      Lol about Coldplay! The list of attendees leads me to belive their fanbase has gotten A LOT older.

  11. Belle Epoch says:

    OH. MY. GOD. Sirius let random people attend a VIP show? What were they thinking? VIPs spend millions and billions of dollars to make sure they never interact with hoi polloi. Clearly Bethanny was doing everyone a favor.

    • velourazure says:

      The Horror!

      “There was no VIP area in the tiny venue!”

      Society is crumbling!


  12. Ariel says:

    Is there any person on any of the “real housewives” shows that is not a rude, nasty, trashy person? Ugly humans.

    We have all come to this place where morals and manners are nice, but only when convenient. And there is always an excuse for our own nasty, rude, asshole actions.
    We should all do better.

    And Bravo should stop putting this trash on tv.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      I agree. They seem to think you only do the right thing when things are going good or going their way. Nobody told them you don’t get pats on the back for doing the right thing. You get pats on the back for doing the right thing IN CHALLENGING TIMES!! Trashy best describes the vast majority of them – save for Vanderpump. She’s the only one with even an ounce of class.

    • Esmom says:

      Amen, Ariel.

      Throwing a drink at someone is just a default setting for Bethenny and that crowd.

    • Taiss says:

      I blame Andy, he knows exactly how to pick them.

    • Lynnie says:

      Their was a Lisa? (she was petite with long, wavy brown hair, and young) character who came on the OC franchise for a season and then left to start a family. She seemed genuinely nice, and certainly got out of the whole situation fast once she saw Tamra and Vicki’s true colors.

  13. Brit says:

    She kept a lot of her bs well hidden for the first couple of seasons but everything negative about her has been coming out of the woodwork lately thanks to her dispecable turn on real housewives. Hope they realize it’s time for her to go

    • Tate says:

      I can’t believe that once upon a time I found her snark to be funny. She is really just vile and awful.

  14. Darkladi says:

    I know a certain Real Housewife who needs to clean the sand out of her vagina.

  15. kri says:

    Whenever I need a breath of stank air, I read something about Bethenny. Her whole personality needs a breath mint.

  16. Harryg says:

    I’m so excited she’s self-destructing.

  17. Sue says:

    Okay she has some seriously wrinkly knees! The picture of her standing in front of the Cold Play signs is freaking me out because I can’t look away from the side profile of a man in her wrinkly knee.

  18. KatM says:

    I do not understand why Andy Cohen thinks she is the cat’s meow. She is honestly vile.

  19. paranormalgirl says:

    I’m a Hamptons regular and I can pretty much say that she has a handful (a Donald Trump hand-sized handful) of “friends” in the Hamptons. Most of the “society” people see her as “try hard new money.”

    • HappyMom says:

      I went a few times as a guest of DH’s work friends who had a very large, beautiful house on the beach (tennis courts, pool). I’m a middle class California girl-so not my usual milieu-but I loved it. The whole vibe is understated and lovely-definitely not a “throw your drink at someone” kind of place.

  20. mellie says:

    Apparently Ms. Entitled has never had lawn seats at an amphitheater…welcome to the real world biotch.

  21. Tw says:

    Not to mention this entire event reeked of douche entitlement. Coldplay threw a party for their closest 100 jackass friends, with no regard for anyone in the neighboring 4 towns who needed to drive on Sunday. Traffic was backed up for hours.

  22. Nancy says:

    She is just the worst kind of person….

  23. Annetommy says:

    The only think I know about her is that her father was a racehorse trainer, and the brilliant colt Frankel was named after him. The horse was certainly better looking, sounds as if he had better manners too.

  24. CatJ says:

    The Wonk-Eye in the first photo is disturbing….. yikes!

  25. Aubra says:


    *walks out*

  26. Pmnichols says:

    How old is her boyfriend??! Eew- Daddy issues much. She’s a straight up a**hole.

  27. Vinot says:

    I have an unpopular opinion, and I’ll cop to that, but I still love Bethenny and I couldn’t care less. Her IG stories from that night looked like that place was a shitshow, so I’m not surprised that things got out of hand. And whatever people have to say about her on-air personality, she is a savvy ass business woman, antics or no.
