Bethenny Frankel urges reality TV stars to join actors’ strike: ‘We’re getting screwed too’
Bethenny Frankel believes that reality TV stars should participate in the ongoing strike by writers and actors because they are also being financially exploited.
On Instagram, the former star of “Real Housewives of New York” posed the question, “Hollywood is on strike. Entertainers are fighting for residuals, and no one will promote anything. Why isn’t reality TV on strike?”
Frankel, 52, revealed that she was only paid $7,250 for her first season on “RHONY” and has not received any residuals since then.
She explained, “I myself have generated millions and millions of dollars in advertising and online impressions by being on reality TV and have never received a single residual. So, either I’m missing something or we’re being taken advantage of as well.”
Frankel, who believes that reality TV stars are often looked down upon and considered the “losers” of Hollywood, pointed out that they were the ones who provided entertainment during the last writers’ strike from 2007 to 2008.
She specifically mentioned stars from shows like “The Bachelor” and “The Hills” who are paid very little despite the fact that people still watch old episodes from years ago.
She exclaimed, “It’s complete and total nonsense. It just dawned on me that everyone is talking about actors and we don’t get paid anything.”
