"Real Housewives of New York" star Bethenny Frankel is being roasted after she tried coming for Meghan Markle before her bombshell interview with Oprah aired.

Bethenny tweet out a message trashing Meghan's "plight" saying she was nothing but a formerly "unknown actress" who struck it rich by marrying a prince.

One person scolded Bethenny commenting, "The privilege here is you never questioned using your voice. And yet you used it on your huge platform to let it be known Meghan should be silenced. When I woke up to your asinine comparison, during a pandemic, it felt like a surprising choice."

Hours before the interview was set to air, Bethenny took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the Oprah interview. She said, "Not since @MonicaLewinsky interview, have people been obsessed with a young female interview like this #MARRY interview. Remember the famous lip gloss?"

Bethenny replied to one fan pointing out the media trashed Meghan for years. Bethenny didn't agree writing, "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. 🤔 #MARRY."

To be clear, Meghan was NOT paid for the interview with Oprah. Bethenny was sympathetic to Harry despite her criticism of Meghan. She wrote, "I 💯 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. If you hate me for saying it here don’t listen to my podcast #justbwithbethenny it’s littered with my opinion."

She then retweet a follower reading, "Finally. Bethenny says what we in the UK are all thinking 🙏🏻"

Bethenny started getting torn to shreds by fans and Meghan supporters. She initially responded to the heat by writing, "I chose reality tv, to work towards making $, to be scrutinized & criticized.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."

The reality star, who will shamelessly hawk anything, decided it probably wasn't good for business and changed her tune hours later. After watching the Oprah special Bethenny tweet, "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."

One fan replied, "Translation: I’m a WW with privilege that gets to say things that are offensive bc society doesn’t treat me like they treat other women. I will use my voice how I please bc being held accountable isn’t something that I’m used to. I stand by what I said but I apologize or whatever."
