The reality star and businesswoman tweeted an apology to the duchess after watching the tell-all herself.
Bethenny Frankel is apologizing to Meghan Markle after dissing the Duchess ahead of Markle and Prince Harry's tell-all interview. The Real Housewives of New York City star took to Twitter on Sunday after watching the sit-down to empathize with the former Suits actress and say sorry if what she said hurt or offended Markle.
"I watched M & H sit down. Emotional distress & racism must feel suffocating & powerless. I’m a polarizing, unfiltered(often to a fault)flawed person w a voice. When I heard of the interview, during a pandemic, it felt like a surprising choice. I’m sorry if it hurt or offended you," Frankel tweeted.
Earlier on Sunday, the business mogul slammed Markle and her complaints about the royal family.
"Cry me a river...the plight of being a game show host, fairly unknown actress, to suffering in a palace, w tiaras & 7 figure weddings for TWO WHOLE YEARS to being a household name w @Oprah on speed dial, fetching 7 m for interviews, hundreds of millions in media deals," Bethenny tweeted, adding a thinking face emoji.
The reality star added that she gives "Harry a break," given what his late mother, Princess Diana, went through.
"I [100 percent] give Harry a break. This isn’t the way to generate less press & cannot be filed under the guise of wanting privacy to prevent a repeat of previous events," she wrote. "If you hate me for saying it here don’t listen to my podcast #justbwithbethenny it’s littered with my opinion."
"I chose reality tv, to work towards making $, to be scrutinized & criticized," Bethenny added. "I took the trappings & the beatings along with it. It’s a rose w petals & thorns. People beg to enter the often toxic institution I signed up for. That WAS the life I chose. You can’t play stupid & smart."
Meghan's friends and other celebs have since spoken out in her defense. Patrick J. Adams fought back against the royal family in a series of scathing tweets on Friday, and on Sunday, Gabrielle Union again offered Meghan her support.
