There are definitely some things that are better left in the past.
At least that’s what Bethenny Frankel was thinking when Bravo’s Andy Cohen stopped by her new talk show to give the audience a look at her “Real Housewives of New York” audition tape.
“Speaking of awkward moments, I brought something to surprise you with,” Cohen said on the episode, which airs Monday. “I love on my show to open the vault and look into the past. This is Bethenny’s audition tape.”
The clip opens with Frankel introducing herself as a natural foods chef living in New York and being driven around by a driver named Clever. She adds on the tape that she’s cooked for Denis Leary, the Hiltons and Mariska Hargitay.
Frankel can be seen covering her face in embarrassment when she’s shown baby talking to her dog.
“That was painful,” she said immediately after the clip ended.
“You were very funny with the driver,” Cohen explains why she got on the show. “The scene with the driver, I was like, ‘She’s funny.’”
Frankel is noticably shaken up and says, “I just want to die. I really do.”
But Cohen doesn’t stop there. He shows the rest of the clip, in which Frankel is talking about her ex bestie Jill Zarin.
“She’s just a nutjob, I can tell, so I like her,” she jokes in the video.
The two had a falling out in 2009, so Frankel says, “What a foreshadowing!” right after it ends.
