We’re not going to get off our soapbox talking about how Bethenny Frankel exploited Rachel Leviss (Raquel, but we refuse to call her that) in her podcast, getting her to talk about Scandoval. For the life of us, we can’t understand why Rachel would decide to tell her story on that podcast and allow herself to be exploited once again.
We can guess why Bethenny did it – relevance and money.
“It is a travesty that she didn’t end up coming back. Because — I’m not going to say too much because we’re in production — she should have come back. I think she would have been very surprised,” Lala commented on her Give the Lala podcast. “And instead, she went and did this, and she was manipulated yet again.”
This is referring to doing Bethenny’s podcast. Look, while we are all allowed to tell our stories the way that is best for us, it just is absolutely atrocious that Rachel was taken advantage of in this way.
Lala commented on Rachel being on the podcast, “I saw this all the time that there are going to be moments where our voice is all we have. We have all been able to go on a platform – whether it is our own or someone else’s – to share our side of any story.”
“Raquel absolutely has that right, and I am happy that she finally got to take advantage of a giant platform to tell her story. I only saw clips and what I gathered from it is Bethenny completely exploited that girl yet again,” she continued.
And then said, “To me, she sat there and said, ‘You know what? This girl is going to be easy to manipulate… Her story is crazy even though she brought it upon herself and this is going to be the perfect way for me to place her into the narrative I’m trying to create.’ It was actually really sad to me because I really liked Bethenny Frankel.”
Well we can’t share that love of Bethenny, but at the same point to each their own.
