Luann de Lesseps Gives An Update On Her Relationship With Bethenny Frankel After Explosive Miami Blowup!

Luann de Lesseps is giving an update on her relationship with Real Housewives of New York City co-star Bethenny Frankel after their explosive Miami blowup, which aired last week on the Bravo hit reality series.

de Lesseps says that things have "gotten much better" between them in the intervening months.

"It's something that happened, you know, over six months ago so it's always hard to see that again because we've gotten to a different place," she told Entertainment Tonight. "It was tough. I felt really bad because I know there were a lot of things going on in there and it wasn't just about me. I think I handled it pretty well considering."

"It was a tough moment and I think, as we go back a long time, I think that friends do get angry at each other and they do yell at each other," de Lesseps explained. "If you don't care, you don't bother with people, right? So I thought it was a true show of her love for me."

She continued: "I don't think people understand how hard it was to not drink on that trip because there was a lot of drinking going on in a big way…. You know it may come off as being self-centered, but I really had to take care of me. The most important thing to me is my sobriety, so that comes first," she shared. "It may get misconstrued as being a narcissist, but that's not me at all and people who know me a long time [know] that's not who I am."

"I just think that having to take care of yourself takes a lot of energy and sometimes you don't have anything to give," she added.

As for her explosive with with Frankel, Luann says she  just let Frankel get out all her anger, much of which she doesn't feel was truly meant for her, but was due to other aspects of her co-star's personal life.

"I didn't say very much because I felt like [it was best to] just let her vent," de Lesseps told Entertainment Tonight. "It was not time to, like, stand up and go after her. She had a full on breakdown."
