Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills: Bethenny Frankel confronts Lisa Vanderpump in East versus West clash
Lisa Vanderpump had a face-to-face encounter with Bethenny Frankel on Tuesday's episode of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.
The East and West coast doyennes of the Bravo franchise clashed at a trunk show hosted by Kyle Richards at her Manhattan boutique.
Bethenny, Kyle's friend for more than 25 years, was on Team Kyle after Vanderpump had backed Dorit Kemsley during a feud that erupted in last week's episode.

'Don't look at me like that,' sniped Vanderpump as Bethenny scowled in her direction.
Tensions rose when Bethenny told Vanderpump that Kyle got caught in the 'crossfire' while defending her.
Vanderpump then thanked Kyle for sticking up for her, but Bethenny thought it was hollow and called it a 'Thank you, thuck you'.
The British restaurateur said she didn't want Dorit to go home alone and that's why she offered to go in a cab with her, prompting Bethenny to remind Vanderpump that Dorit is a 'big girl' and could probably make her way home alone.

'I'm a big girl too, and a bigger person, so there. Thuck you, thank you, I mean,' said Vanderpump on the episode, which was titled Thank You, Thuck You.

Erika Girardi already had issues Bethenny, who slammed her music video as 'cheap' last season.
'She's one of those big dogs who wants to pee all over everything, but she's actually got a heart of gold,' said Erika charitably.
