Ariana Madix blasts Bethenny Frankel’s ‘hurtful’ Raquel Leviss interview

Ariana Madix has expressed her disappointment in Bethenny Frankel’s decision to interview Raquel Leviss, stating that Frankel “should have known better.” Madix, the co-creator of the podcast “Something About Her,” criticized Frankel’s three-part podcast on “Scheananigans With Scheana Shay” during an episode on Friday. Although Madix admitted to not listening to the podcast, she had read synopses and felt upset by the comments made. Madix accused Frankel of speaking without sufficient knowledge regarding Leviss’ affair with Tom Sandoval while he was dating Madix, stating that Frankel “did not know what the f–k” she was talking about. Scheana Shay also chimed in, suggesting that Frankel should have done more research.

Madix further addressed the “hurtful” comments made by Frankel during the podcast, particularly regarding the significance of the cheating scandal in her and Sandoval’s relationship. Madix explained that although they had not married or had children during their nine-year relationship, it was still a serious commitment. She found Frankel’s comments insensitive towards other women in similar relationships who may not have children or choose not to get married. Madix emphasized that no one’s relationship should be deemed less meaningful based on these factors, and Frankel should have been more considerate in her statements.

In addition, Madix responded to Frankel and Leviss’ criticism of her and Sandoval still living together in Los Angeles. She assured listeners that she keeps her door locked and mentioned that she is working with her lawyer and financial advisors to determine the best course of action. Madix wants to avoid causing unnecessary trauma to her pets by uprooting them from their current home.

Frankel has faced backlash for her interview with Leviss, with Stassi Schroeder, Lala Kent, and other stars expressing their disapproval. Despite the criticism, Frankel defended her decision and advised haters not to listen to the interview. She expressed gratitude for both the love and hate received, stating that the podcast has been successful and achieved what they intended.

Ariana Madix believes Bethenny Frankel “should have known better” than to interview Raquel Leviss.

The Something About Her co-creator blasted Frankel’s three-part podcast on “Scheananigans With Scheana Shay” Friday.

“Bethenny actually upset me more in the things that were said,” Madix, 38, told listeners, clarifying that she “did not listen but did read synopses.”

She accused Frankel, 52, of not “know[ing] what the f–k” she was talking about when sharing her opinions on Leviss’ affair with Tom Sandoval while he was dating Madix.

Scheana Shay chimed in, claiming that Frankel needed to do “more research.”

“Bethenny actually upset me more,” Madix said.

Madix then specifically addressed “very hurtful” comments Frankel made about the cheating scandal meaning less because Madix and Sandoval had not tied the knot or welcomed children during their nine-year relationship.


“In many states, [he was my common law spouse],” Madix said. “I find that hurtful in regards to other women in relationships who don’t have children. Maybe they can’t have children or don’t want children or don’t want to get married.

“None of those people’s relationships are less meaningful because of that,” the reality star continued. “She should know better than to say that about anybody.”
