Bethenny Frankel is apologizing to Meghan Markle after slamming the 39-year-old former royal ahead of her and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday.
On Frankel’s Twitter page, “The Real Housewives of New York City” star watched the interview and explained how sorry she was about what she said and if she offended Markle.
“I watched M & H sit down. Emotional distress & racism must feel suffocating & powerless. I’m a polarizing, unfiltered(often to a fault)flawed person w a voice. When I heard of the interview, during a pandemic, it felt like a surprising choice. I’m sorry if it hurt or offended you,” Frankel tweeted.
Frankel previously criticized Markle and her complaints about the royal family before the interview, reports Entertainment Tonight.
“Cry me a river...the plight of being a game show host, fairly unknown actress, to suffering in a palace, w tiaras & 7 figure weddings for TWO WHOLE YEARS to being a household name w @Oprah on speed dial, fetching 7 m for interviews, hundreds of millions in media deals,” the reality star tweeted.
Frankel mentioned how she sympathizes with Prince Harry and how she gives “Harry a break,” with everything that happened with his mother, Princess Diana.
“I [100 percent] give Harry a break. This isn’t the way to generate less press & cannot be filed under the guise of wanting privacy to prevent a repeat of previous events,” she wrote. “If you hate me for saying it here don’t listen to my podcast #justbwithbethenny it’s littered with my opinion.”
“I chose reality tv, to work towards making $, to be scrutinized & criticized,” Bethenny added. “I took the trappings & the beatings along with it. It’s a rose w petals & thorns. People beg to enter the often toxic institution I signed up for. That WAS the life I chose. You can’t play stupid & smart.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sat down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday night, and during their talk, Markle said that she contemplated suicide during her time as a royal.
Markle commented on the harrowing emotional moment, and how difficult but necessary it was to get help.
