Bethenny Frankel on visiting New Zealand, Khloe Kardashian

Drive 13/04/2018

While Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel was only in New Zealand for a few short days, she managed to join Ryan Bridge  Lisa Owen for a quick chat in the studio.

The reality star, who has since launched her own TV production company, said Kiwis have gone above and beyond in their hospitality.

“People have a great sense of humour here,” she told RadioLIVE.

Ms Frankel pointed out that her own communication style may not mesh with the average New Zealander, as “people here use a lot of words”.

“I’m like a straight no-chaser,” she said.

Bethenny is regarded as the most well-known Real Housewives star internationally, and a friend of the Kardashian clan.

She gave her advice to fellow reality start Khloe Kardashian while in the studio with Ryan Bridge and Lisa Owen.

Khloe has just given birth to a baby girl with her partner Tristan Thompson, who has been under fire this week after videos emerged online that appear to show him cheating with other women.

"He must be utterly stupid, not to mention insensitive. He must have no conscience or morals whatsoever," said Ms Frankel.

She added that warning signs were there even for viewers of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, let alone Khloe herself.

"Men who are posing in a bunch of pictures right away and jumping onto the television show, loving that Kardashian fame - that's a red flag," she says.

"I'm attracted to men who don't have an Instagram account, don't want to be on television - if they have to be, it's because I'm asking them to, just because the audience would like to see what's going on in my life," says Bethenny.

"Maybe [Khloe] should try to date somebody a little more low-profile. It's hard... but maybe a civilian. But then maybe a civilian wouldn't want to be in the middle of all that. It's tricky."
