Bad Mom Bethenny? ‘RHONY’ Star’s Own Mother Slams Her for Bad Parenting

"I had a daughter who died"

Not much is known about Bernadette Birk, mother of Real Housewives of New York royalty Bethenny Frankel. She’s never been seen on any of Bethenny’s shows because the mother and daughter have been estranged for many years. However, we do know that when Bernadette speaks about her daughter, she rarely has anything nice to say.

Bernadette even has something to say about Bethenny wanting to protect herself and her daughter from her ex-husband Jason Hoppy.
