Bethenny Frankel is in trouble for a strange comparison she made during an event at Penn State while she described her television experience. Radar Online reports on Monday that the former “Real Housewives of New York” star shared the show reminded her of flashbacks from the Vietnam War. Her statement has offended veterans who do not appreciate the comparison to a reality television program.

Frankel is still reeling from the recent cancelation of her talk show, and she admits she has gone through her share of failures. However, she does not want to return to the “Real Housewives of New York” despite the rumors circulating around her. The former housewife seems adamant about her decision to avoid the series, and she decided to make the issue end by comparing it to the Vietnam War flashbacks experienced by veterans.

The former talk show host has been called insensitive for using the Vietnam War in her speech at Penn State. Although her supporters are calling her comments a bad joke, most people are finding them offensive. Frankel has not issued an official apology or allowed her representatives to correct the statement publicly.

Despite her speech about not returning to the “Real Housewives of New York,” the reality star has allegedly been talking to Bravo about hosting another type of show. She may be interested in trying a different type of talk show or reality program, but she wants to be the sole star.

Frankel has been ignoring taunts from critics on Twitter about her Vietnam War comments. Instead, she has been promoting her new Skinnygirl products and showing off her plans for a Cinco de Mayo party. The only post about her speaking event at Penn State reveals she misses these types of opportunities and wishes she could do more of them.
