The Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel shared on her latest episode of the ‘Just B’ podcast that she is not up for the Duchess of Sussex’s podcast "Archetypes" and mentioned that the former actress is talking down to people when she should be focusing on the royal family after she and her husband Prince Harry stepped down from their roles.
Bethenny described Meghan Markle as self-important and polarizing after her remarks on the royal family, Bethenny admitted that she is not a fan of the former actress and stated that, in her opinion, the reason why people dislike the former actress is that it's possible that she is sanctimonious and talks down to other people, giving the impression that she is up there and everyone else is down here. Bethenny said that Meghan Markle has institutional knowledge of life and has experienced more than anyone at the moment, but she comes across as a self-important person, which is not very likable.
Meghan Markle's podcast, according to Bethenny Frankel, makes her seem like a housewife because she won't stop talking about the subject she wants to become unimportant. She continued by comparing it to when a housewife decides to split from the other housewives, claiming that it is poisonous and she does not want to be a part of the drama, but then for the following five years, she constantly discusses the same thing she is trying to get away from. Although ahead of her podcast's first episode, Meghan Markle said that the podcast is going to give the audience to a real side of her.
The Real Housewives of New York star further mentioned that if one leaves the royal family, they leave the royal family, adding that she has learned something and she explained it to the world and the world heard her, but now in every single interview she has been talking about the royal family, which makes one say to her that let it go, move forward. create change in the future. Bethenny also pointed out that the Duchess of Sussex demanded privacy but also, in a way, makes sure that she stays in the spotlight as she now has a podcast and Netflix special, adding that there are a million things she could say about it.
Speaking about Meghan Markle’s remarks on racism, Bethenny said that those remarks are not relatable to everyone, but stated that it’s good that Meghan is voicing her opinion and how she feels about it, but advised her to look into new issues rather than Royal. The Real Housewives of New York star further explained that the royals are her husband's family and that she keeps repeating the same storyline, which is kind of sad. However, if she wants to be the voice of change and a woman for female empowerment, she must discuss racism and how unacceptable it is, as well as what it's like to be a woman of color.
Therefore, carry that out in the future. Why do we keep making references to historical events involving this particular family, which doesn't represent the majority of society, in such nuanced and delicate ways? It can't be related to.
Although Bethenny did mention that a lot of people were interested in listening to what the Duchess of Sussex had to say on her podcast "Archetypes," hence making the debut episode reach the number one spot, a lot of people do not find her relatable and she is one of them.
