skating with the stars bethenny frankel mom interview Bethenny Frankel's mom talks 'Skating with the Stars' and Jill Zarin: Sweet revenge?

That’s probably not the headline Bravo star Bethenny Frankel’s mother hoped for when she started blabbing to the press that her estranged daughter joined ABC’s “Skating with the Stars” just to spite former “Real Housewives of New York” friend, Jill Zarin. But, all we saw was sour grapes.
“As soon as I saw that she was going to be on ‘Skating with the Stars’ I just knew she had an ulterior motive,” Bernadette Burke blabbed to RadarOnline.com. “It is for fame and to one up Jill Zarin.”
Burke accuses Frankel of wanting to show Zarin up on the ice rink after “Real Housewives” aired her ice skating party last season.

“As soon as I saw Bethenny was skating,” says Burke. “I knew she had another reason than just having fun.”

While Frankel has tweeted about the rough skating rehearsals and jokingly lamented her choice to join the show, her mother’s quotes suggest Bethenny is hustling us.

“She is going to be a dead ringer out there,” she says. “Because she’s had so many private ice skating and roller skating lessons. She did it all the time when she was a child.”

Bethenny fans know that she’s very open about not having a close relationship with her mother and has even wanted to keep her “negative energy” away from her new daughter, Brynn Hoppy, as long as she could.
Is this Bernadette’s way of getting back at her?
