Bethenny, who founded Skinnygirl cocktails, picked holes in Sonja’s business plan and fired questions at her bewildered team.

Expressing surprise at their plan to launch the range so soon, she told the camera: 'I don’t really know a lot about this, but I know enough to know that in a couple of months you’re not going to just pull the clothing line out of you’re a** like a rabbit out of a hat.'

Sonja spoke to Bethenny about her business idea over lunch on Tuesday’s episode of The Real Housewives Of New York City.

She described her business as 'international fashion lifestyle brands' and said she wanted to include clothes, jewelry and perfume, but Bethenny was quick to criticize.

'What the f*** are you talking about?' Bethenny said to the cameras behind Sonja’s back.

Addressing her friend she advised her to focus on just one product and said: 'It’s not international yet because not everybody knows you internationally. You have to start small.'

Although she complimented Sonja on her designs when invited to the showroom, Bethenny quizzed her team about the launch date and expressed surprise that they did not yet have retailers in place.

Her showroom visit upset fellow Housewives star Heather Thomson and Louann de Lesseps, who thought they should have been invited given their fashion knowledge.

A row broke out between the trio at a party thrown by Dorinda Medley, but Sonja was quick to defend her decision.

'They’ve had nothing positive to say and they claim it doesn’t exist,' she told the cameras.

During the heated discussion she told Heather and Louann: 'You don’t sound supportive at all. You’re making it all about you.'

There were also tense words exchanged between Sonja and Ramona Singer, when Ramona accused her friend of ignoring her.

The pair soon patched things up, but Ramona still managed to insult Sonja’s date to the party – 24-year-old model Dominik Persy.

Ramona, who is struggling to bounce back after her divorce from husband Mario, told Kristen Taekman she would never date a man like Dominik – as the model sat right beside them.

She said: 'Maybe that’s what you would do if – god forbid – something happened to your husband, maybe you would take up with someone like him, but I’m deeper than that.

Addressing Dominik, she added: 'I know I’m attractive, I know I’m personable, I know I’m sexy, I know I’m sensual. I’m not going to be with you to have a sexual fling. I don’t need that, I can use my hand.'

Carole Radziwill’s love life set tongue’s wagging as she confessed she has been dating chef Adam Kenworthy – who works for Louann and used to date her niece.

'If it was any other guy it would be fine, but it’s Adam and it’s very close to home,' Louann said.

Kristen added: 'The age difference between Adam and Carole is, I think, perfect for Carole. In this group of women, as long as he’s legal I don’t want to know any more.'

Dorinda’s relationship also caused a stir as her boyfriend John Mahdessian got too touchy feely with Sonja and Kristen at her party.

She had previously opened up to Louann about how she does not like John having female friends.

She explained: 'When I met John, John had a ton of lady friends. I said to him ''That part of your black book is gone and I will rip out the pages personally if you’d like me to''.

'I think where there’s a vagina involved with men there could always be a slip-up and I don’t like slip-ups,' Dorinda proclaimed.

Referring to the death of her husband Richard, she said: 'Maybe I am a little insecure. I never was like that until Richard got very sick. I swear to god I got all sort of off kilter.'

She told the camera: 'When someone you love passes away it definitely makes you vulnerable and it make you afraid.'
