Even Gwyneth Paltrow Don’t know why she keeps getting mentioned The Real Housewives of New York City.
The actress has been mentioned more than once during the Bravo show’s fourteen seasons, but some moments are definitely more iconic than others.
By now, fans of the reality show are well versed in all things Scary Island, but with the iconic moment in between Bethenny Frankel And Kelly Bensimon will live on forever.
Frankel and Bensimon went head-to-head during a cast trip to St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands during Season 3 to celebrate Ramona Singer“bachelor party” prior to her vow renewal to her then-husband Mario Singer.
Bensimon went on a trip, as Frankel called her, “cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs,” which led to a verbal altercation between the two women. Bensimon quickly leveled accusations at Frankel at a dinner over the holidays.
“And when you attacked Gwyneth? My girlfriend Gwyneth?’ Bensimon asked. Frankel replied, “Who is Gwyneth?”
“Paltrow,” Bensimon continued. “I’m out. Guys, thank you very much.”
Frankel called her former costar a “crazy” as she walked out. However, Bensimon quickly returned with a bag of jelly beans. “You are absolutely crazy,” Frankel told her before shouting her iconic line: “Go to sleep.”
While the episode first aired in 2010, Bravo was in charge Andy Cohen addressed the scene with Paltrow years later when she appeared Watch what happens live with Andy Cohen.
“I have to tell you, we’ve never asked you this before, you’ve been on the show before. And every time you come over, we get this question for you,” Cohen told the actress in October 2021. And that’s because your name was notoriously dropped during season 3 of a very famous episode of The Real Housewives of New York Citon Scary Island.”
Cohen asked Paltrow to respond “if this makes sense to you” before showing her the clip.
“So the accusation is that Bethenny Frankel assaulted you and that you are good friends with Kelly Bensimon,” Cohen said. “Do any of these resonate on any level?”
Paltrow, for her part, bit her lip and turned her head to the side, seemingly confused about the situation — Cohen took that as a no.
“Alright, there you go!” said the TV presenter. ‘That’s all I needed to know. Thank you.”
